dice trays #1: Square tray and rectangular tray

10-27-2018 02:40 PM by TheTimberAlchemist | 4 comments »

Working on a a couple quality dice trays for those hardcore gamers out there. They still need a few more coats of Danish oil and a felt or fabric to line the interior base. Comments and suggestions welcome. Both have dice storage areas and personal dice trays. I have made some with felt but I like the faux suade texture and sound. What do you all think? At the moment I have orange and gray suade. I cant decide which one to put in which tray.

Hope everyone is having a great summer or holidays.Here is been too hot and a fan is not enough to keep you cool for woodworking in my shop, so it’s been a while to build anything or even finish my Box (finger) Joint Jig I was working on.Anyway the other day I was looking at some woodworking pages and some guy was trying to do an inlay design (not a bow tie) but his sketch and idea would not have worked because it would not hold it didn’t had any strength to it.So it got me thinki...

A Day in my Summer woodworking class

02-19-2017 05:58 PM by Jack McKee | 4 comments »

A Day in my Summer Shop Class Below are three pictures of the shop I used for 20 years. The first is on the left of the shop as you are looking into the garage/shop, then center, and right. I liked having the space open to the outdoors. You may notice the steam engine on the table in the first picture. When I started teaching I was doing a science class and a woodworking class. The kids from the science class saw the woodwoking and said, “we want to do that.” And the woodworking...

Project Ideas, Hmm... #5: Charging Station

05-02-2016 02:10 PM by Dave Rutan | 8 comments »

My wife has requested a charging station for our personal electronics. I’ve been thinking about this for a while, but now she has requested it as a Mother’s Day gift, (though it doesn’t have to be finished by then.) What we have in mind is a sort of ‘place’ that the electronics can live on as well as be charged as needed. We have two laptops, two iphones, an ipod, an ipad and my Nook. a nice add on would be a place to keep earbuds and memory sticks. I hav...

Holiday Gifts #1: Inspiration and Ideas

10-29-2015 12:28 PM by Sioranth | 2 comments »

I inadvertently have found myself in a position where there is an expectation of woodworking gifts for the holidays this year. I guess that’s what I get for posting all my little projects on Facebook where my family can see them. So, for my father I am going to be making a six-pack beer tote out of mahogany and quarter sawn sycamore. I’m hoping it looks as good as I envision it will when it’s finished. It’s going to have rare earth magnets for catching the bottle ca...

Pinterest on my board in the shop

01-05-2014 09:12 PM by CueballRosendaul | 3 comments »

I don’t often find myself in the shop twiddling my thumbs on what to make next, but sometimes I need a little inspiration, a quick gift, or a time filler while I’m waiting for a finish to dry. I have a great Pinterest board for woodworking ideas, but I don’t often have my iPad out in the shop, so I simply printed my pins onto paper and hung it on the bulletin board. The first couple pages were portrait, but the rest are landscape which works better because the projects get c...

Polyurethane fix, ideas, suggestions

08-22-2013 07:04 AM by inganmarcelo | 5 comments »

hello everyone, I am new to woodworking. I am building a table, one like I saw in apple store.after a month of long struggle I finally got to the finishing stage.I am not a big fan of oil polyurethane because of its shine and non-woody feel of it.but I thought I might make it work if I applied very thin layer.and wiped it with cloth instead of brush. well. it didn’t work out very well. not happy with the outcome. shinny and plasticky does anyone know how to get that effect of f...

Video Review Of Dust Deputy

03-30-2013 04:39 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 9 comments »

I posted this in the review section as well. But I felt the video offers a lot of context on how I use the Dust Deputy as a professional, what tools I use it with, and how I have it set up. This is a lot of good information to consider if you are thinking of getting one. You can see my Dust Deputy review here. Your friend in the shop- Todd A.
