Shop Skills #2: Card Scrapers the Video!

1942 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 54 comments »

It’s Finally Here! I have completed my first feature woodworking video. This video shows how I sharpen my card scrapers. It is a simple process and I kept the instruction simple with some close-up video action. I hope this post goes smooth, it has taken me all day to figure out how to finish up the video and 3 attempts to get it online. So this is a pretty big moment. I can work on polished video later but I have to start somewhere. I hope that this video on sharpening ca...

Community Woodshop #1: Community Woodshop LA - are you interested?

931 days ago by communitywoodshopLA | 6 comments »

My name is Scott Stevens and I have an idea to create a community woodshop. My goal is to create a friendly environment for people to explore woodworking. People will not only come to use the woodworking machines but also to learn something new, to share knowledge, and to be a part of the community. There will be a wide range of classes offered for all levels of woodworkers (including children) and the woodshop will carry professional grade machines with some specialty machines not nor...

Puzzlemaking with a Scroll Saw

736 days ago by KnotCurser | 2 comments »

The first step in making one of these puzzles is spending some time in front of the computer. You have to have an image to cut as well as create a properly sized puzzle overlay. If you are cutting something like a dollar bill or a playing card, you will still need to create a puzzle overlay. I have decided to make something for my wonderful Mother-in-Law who happens to be one of the most dedicated Baltimore Orioles fans I have ever known. I know she loves Brooks Robinson, so I found an ...

The Deluxe Router Table...Improved

1198 days ago by woodworkerscott | 19 comments »

I made a video awhile back on improvements I feel I have made to the Deluxe Router Table featured on the New Yankee Workshop with Norm Abram. In the video I do not have a router fence on the table, for good reason…..I am still designing one that will do everything I like. I attach a temporary one when needed. There are several changes I think that needed to be made to be more practical in both design and cost. Example of topics covered: Enclosed router compartment- not necessary and ...

Maloof rocking chair class question

820 days ago by bkap | 6 comments »

I am considering offering a new special for those who would like to take my Maloof-style rocking chair class. After talking to a number of woodworkers, I have come up with a “class bundle” offer for a week of instruction on rocking chair science. If at least six (6) woodworkers sign up for any week-long (5 days) “class bundle,” then, by a drawing, one of those woodworkers will receive that “class bundle” for FREE. Included in the five-day (Monday t...
