Roughing it out (Wooden Sword and White Sword)

11-10-2017 03:52 PM by NadarCreative | 2 comments »

I decided to try and make some wall art pieces based on the first Legend of Zelda game on the old NES. I grabbed some pine boards and printed out some large pixel art of the items as they appear in the game, roughing them out on the band saw and sanding them more accurately into shape. I also have both boomerangs and the blue potion to show soon. This should be a fun ride…

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #2: Well that didn't take long

11-06-2017 07:09 PM by Bluenote38 | 6 comments »

Of course not – I’ve been thinking about this for about 6 months. And like most have done a LOT of internet searches on “Tool Cabinets”; “Toolboxes”; “Tool Chests” (Yes I have the book); “Hanging Tool Cabinets”; “Tool Hanging”; “Tool Storage” and several more permutations. If you think I may have missed one let me know. There are hundreds of solutions, as many as there are Woodworkers, and so many great id...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #1: In the begining

11-06-2017 06:38 PM by Bluenote38 | 0 comments »

In the beginning chaos reigned. Yep, that about sums up my “shop”. Or to quote my wife: “What a mess”! Easily 50% of my time is spent searching for a tool or hardware I know I have and dancing around everything trying not to knock over wood piles or tools. I had a decent shop once but after several moves and life changes I’ve never been able to actually pull together another organized workspace. Now I’m staring at another move in 18 to 24 months and ...

Shop stuff #108: Pencil box in walnut and maple

11-02-2017 09:07 PM by JimDaddyO | 5 comments »

A rainy day today and finally some time to edit video. This is a small pencil box I made for my daughter in law who is going back to school to learn how to help people. My first grand child was born to her 6 months ago and I wanted to make her something that was a bit more common in my time, yet still practical now. View on YouTube

Tool Cabinets #1: Tool Cabinet Concept

10-30-2017 04:50 PM by glideking | 3 comments »

My first attempt at using Sketch up program for designing a piece. I am a bit slow on my first day but I think it will be a handy skill to add to my woodworking. This is still a rough draft. I have to confirm that my tools will fit. The cabinet must fit between two ceiling beams. I may leave the hinged doors as open frames with tools hanging on both sides. The cabinets behind the doors will be mounted to the wall independently and remain open without doors of their own.

Folding Sandpaper

10-28-2017 05:32 AM by Rich | 5 comments »

I know this seems like a trivial thing, but after folding sandpaper this way for decades, I was surprised to find only one youtube video that discussed it, and even it failed to mention the folding order needed to easily use all four surfaces of the folded sheet. When sanding, while getting into tight places, and following contours requires a single thickness of paper, hand-sanding flat surfaces without a block is difficult with one layer. For one, there is nothing to stiffen the paper, a...

Shop Improvements #2: Why your SawStop riving knife still isnt aligned

10-25-2017 06:38 PM by Sarit | 7 comments »

My SawStop PCS tablesaw has a pretty fussy riving knife adjustment system. You have to crank the blade up to check alignment and then crank it back down to be able to adjust the bolts and of course every time you tighten the bolts you move the knife out of alignment. So back and forth you go crank, loosen, align, crank, tighten, crank, loosen, align,... Then once you’ve got it just right, and you crank the blade back down to a reasonable height to cut some 3/4” plywood the knife seems out of ...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #1: Dimensioning the panel pieces

10-19-2017 02:49 PM by Reinan | 2 comments »

Starting a new project for my recently married cousin and his lovely bride, who just got their first house. Figured a nice table as a Christmas/House-Warming present would be we received, as they are young and just starting out in life. I have the main panel/top pieces dimensioned to width, though not final length. The plan is to draw bore breadboard ends in walnut to frame the maple. Next step is making a few clamping caul sets to hold the panel flat while gluing. While I am worki...
