Today Dec 1, 2007 was the toy giveaway day for the Mason-Dixon Woodworkers Club Toy Workshop. We make toys all year long and we pass them out on the first Sat in December. This is the 13 yr that it has been done. It’s grown is scope but we are still looking for people that want to volunteer to make toys. We meet on every Wednesday of the year. Our first day for the 2008 toy making in this coming Wednesday. We had about 18 charities that showed up today. We had over 1200 toys to di...

Lessons learned

04-10-2008 03:57 AM by Mark Shymanski | 7 comments »

Its been a while since I’ve been able to post (I never did get a chance to photograph the joints I’m making, yet). Had some interesting experiences with my power tools and in light of what I’ve been reading here I am considering myself extremely lucky. I experienced my first jointer kickback and I now realize how tremendously lucky I was not to suffer a lot more for my inattention. Next time I’m in the shop I am placing large warning stickers 6 inches either side ...

Commisions #13: money box #2

10-23-2008 12:58 AM by teenagewoodworker | 4 comments »

So i finally got some work done today on my box. first i started by making the bottom. because i am using thick material for the sides i wanted to add some rigidness to the box so it is a 1/2” thick poplar bottom and i did the bevel with a hand plane. rather than set up machinery or anything. then it was time to focus on the dividers. these are hard because they are very thin stock and to get them good they have to fit right. so what i did was cut them and did almost what resembl...

I have just five minutes, but I’ll put some pictures of the work. The raw work is over: God willingly, tomorrow I’ll began with adjusting, sanding and finishing. What do you think of the whole? Tonight I’ll sit for a while and try to post a video. See you later, ...”sawdust-gators”.

Southwest end tables #7: Finishing the Border

09-25-2013 01:14 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 8 comments »

Howdy, I added all of my little U-Turns to the top and here is where I start this Blog. If you have any disparities in your measurements, Here is where they make an appearance. I have to add a 4 inch long piece of Curly Maple here but it’s wider than one inch because the rest of my strips were less than one inch wide. I cut a piece to length then I used a series of stopblocks and clamps to shave it to the exact width. Easy Glue up around all four corners. Once I got back to...

Nightstand #1: Plan

02-01-2015 10:08 AM by Nate66 | 0 comments »

I have sleep apnea and currently just use a simple stand for my CPAP machine. I thought is would be wise to build a nightstand to put it in to help reduce the noise of the pump hum to help give my wife a good nights sleep as well so I designed a nightstand to contain my CPAP machine in a felt lined area to make it virtually sound proof as well as a drawer to contain all the spares and bits and bobs. Have a look.

Shop stuff #10: Saved from the fire

10-31-2015 12:41 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I finally got some editing done on a bunch of footage of working this piece of Maple that I rescued from the fire wood pile last year. It is going toward the box build I am working on. I have no real plan, just a vague idea and I am letting the wood take me it’s own way to get there. https://youtu.be/ZWDVLtvamCY

Dovetails by hand #1: First hand cut dovetail!

01-26-2016 01:43 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

I was determined to lean to cut dovetails last year so I asked Santa for a few tools to get it done. I was really good last year so he brought me a dovetail marking gauge, a marking knife, and a dovetail saw all from Veritas. I’ve been pretty busy so far this month so I made my first try two weeks ago after I was done with my shop lighting project. A rookie mistake here….. So today I tried it again and this time I started by spending an hour or so over two days j...
