The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #26: A useless machine with a thousand uses!

675 days ago by StumpyNubs | 14 comments »

When I saw the commercial version of our new “invention” I thought… why would anyone ever spend $200 on that? Then everyone started arguing about the term “jig saw” and the old man next door went out looking for the Kaiser and I bought a ton of old 8-track tapes… next thing you know it’s a great new episode Blue Collar Woodworking. And a new homemade shop machine is unveiled! After you watch this one, visit Stumpynubs.com for more woodworking goodn...

Technique Thursday #1: November 4, 2010

1357 days ago by Chris Davis | 1 comment »

I thought I’d post something for each day of the week. Thursday’s will be Technique Thursday. I’ll tell about some sort of technique that I use in woodworking. Templates: Can’t stress how important templates are. I’ll build them from 1/2” material to form the shape of a cut out. I always use a mechanical means of making a straight cut or a perfect arc (fence, straight edge, compass). It will then be used to trace onto the good piece, rough cut with...

Miter Bench and Storage #2: Dust Collection and Leveling

2310 days ago by sIKE | 9 comments »

I have been working off and on this project since the last blog. I have had to spend most of the time getting the DC ran and grounded.I even worked out the DC for under the Miter Saw and the box I am am going to build behind it.I also finished up the 2×4 frame top for the right cabinet and got both of them mounted to the base cabinets.This evening I leveled and mounted the cabinets to the wall and then had to stop and clean the shop up as it was a mess. I started to scribe the 3/4 plywoo...

A Guitar for Daniel #1: Okay, you finished high school, now the learning starts...

590 days ago by Dan Lyke | 3 comments »

One of Charlene’s friends from a college years ago has two kids who’ve recently graduated from high school. The elder dived into travelling around Europe and heading off to college on the other coast and generally diving into life. The younger, Daniel, is an Eagle Scout, but post high-school has been casting around trying to figure out what he wants to do. He’s been feeling stuck in a small town up in the Sierra foothills, and we’ve dragged him down to closer to the co...

Steam Bending #4: My First Bending Project is Completed!

642 days ago by Retsof | 3 comments »

The Nets are done and I’m really pleased with how they came out, this being my first attempt at steam bending or building my own net frames. Two of them will make nice gifts for my Dad and my Brother. Net#1: Walnut and Alder Hoop with a Walnut Handle. The inside diameter of the hoop is 9”x14” with an overall length of 21.5”. One of my hand made fly fishing lanyards is on the table behind the net. I fish with a lanyard to hold my fly fishing tools rather tha...

jig saw jig

745 days ago by iamcliff | 5 comments »

So I made a jig for my jig saw. I had the Kreg square-cut jig in mind when I made it. I used a couple of scrap pieces of wood. I don’t have a jointer or a plane, so I used the sides that looked the most straight. I’m guessing they were milled at least on one edge, since I got the wood from Home Depot. I checked these edges for square with my combo square and they looked pretty good. I used glue and clamped the two pieces together then used my nail gun to nail them together on...

Building Baby Stokes' 3-in-1 Crib #2: Layout and Rough Cutting

1172 days ago by Will Stokes | 2 comments »

As I get more experience wood working, I find it interesting how I have come to enjoy seemingly basic or what in the past has been downright challenging parts of a project that I sometimes feared in the past. Stock selection is one of those. I’ve started taking a very different approach to stock selection fairly recently. This is probably the result of watching the Wood Whisperer. I had a great time working with my wife on this step. She helped me pick and choose boards to use for the v...

Wooden Letters #1: Fancy Wooden Letters

494 days ago by Kevbo | 4 comments »

I’ve done whole names of simpler style letters, and I am learning a lot as I go. Some of what I’ve learned is stated below. I’ve made “Charlotte” and “Oliver” letters that fit together like jig saw pieces. Both Charlotte and Oliver are 2 years old and I wanted to give them something to help them learn to spell their names. Charlotte is my daughter and it is really working! These letters are a little fancier as they are for older kids and I had li...

Three New Projects

516 days ago by MT_Stringer | 2 comments »

This pile of lumber may not look like much but it will magically turn in to two of my Fishy Coffee Tables and a Toy Box. :-) Turns out I need another 10 feet of white pine, so off to the store I go tomorrow. It makes it easy that a lot of the work for all three projects can be done ahead of time in a batch. Things like ripping the edges off the 2×4’s and ripping the 1×12 white pine into three pieces each. All of that was after I cut them into rough lengths so it would be ea...

Nakashima-esque Coffee Table #2: Step-by-step Tabletop Continued

730 days ago by Donowoodworks | 0 comments »

I got a bit more time to work on my tabletop today and it is coming along! I think that the longest part remaining is going to be cutting the butterfly dovetails to keep the cracks from spreading. One edge on the bottom is a mess. It will take some time, but I plan on at least 100 years of service out of a piece of furniture when I build, so it will be worth it. I want to keep away from straight lines in this piece, so I used a curve to draw the edges of the table. The curve is adju...
