Band Saw fence

09-25-2013 04:02 PM by RaggedKerf | 1 comment »

My father-in-law procured a new shop addition this past weekend, namely a Ryobi 9” benchtop band saw!!! Jim, you rock! This little gem has already earned it’s keep by enabling me to make some tricky angled cuts on Keaton’s Rocket Bookcase (more on that in another post). Once I get the hang of things and play with it a while, I’ll post a review of it, but for now, there are a few house keeping things that need attending. Namely, a fence and a push stick (safety...

Trying to come up with a good use for the scraps, odds and ends and funny shaped pieces of wood I have in the shop… this is one of them. I’m happy with them so far! Quick and easy. Maple block with a little walnut laminated on top.

Morris style glider #1: Design and adapting to fit onto glider base

08-09-2014 01:14 AM by Orange008 | 1 comment »

My wife and I have recently found out we are expecting. Once I knew, I just had to make something for my wife and soon to be child. I know it is great to have a rocking chair in the baby’s room to rock them to sleep. I have always liked the look and movement of glider rockers. I figured it was the perfect opportunity to build one. I got the core plans from Wood magazine’s issue 112. I followed the plans for the chair pretty much exactly. Due to the low profile of the chair I ha...

Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #1: Entry One--Learning Woodworking Skills

07-18-2014 08:13 PM by CharlesA | 1 comment »

My high school age great nephew is staying with us for a week to learn some woodworking skills. I gave hime a list of possible projects and we ended up with this ditty box:We bought the plans from the website, partially so they could be part of the educational process. We began with a tour of the shop and a the standard safety talk. He’s taking things quite seriously. We’re going to make the box out of curly maple and cherry. We start out learning some of the basics of han...

Balanced Work Bench #4: it's starting to look like something

08-23-2013 01:04 AM by Jeremiah | 1 comment »

So after my HUGE error with the leg vise (it blocked the top drawer)I moved it over and mounted it on the outside of the leg. I’m not 100% satisfied with it, so there will probably be some changes. I did my best to cover up the holes that formerly housed the leg vise’s bottom and screw.Also I put the drawer fronts on the drawers. Here is the new mounting of the leg vise on the outside of the leg. once again, i dont love it, but it will work for now.More later...

Bent Form Guitar Stand #1: Beginning and Main components

07-18-2014 11:30 PM by Matt Nudi | 1 comment »

Well, I have been working on this project for a little while now, the good portion of the summer. This is my first try at doing a bent form project. I was inspired after seeing Ken Dixon’s project from last year as seen here. I found a really nice piece of curly maple lumber online that I was going to use for the project. It was about the right size and 5/4” to give me some wiggle room. I have never used any curly wood like this before so I was pretty nervous to start cutting i...

Milling #1: Milling my own wood

04-22-2013 01:30 AM by Rogerdat | 1 comment »

Well I just had a large maple tree taken don at my house and have decided to keep a few choice pieces to mill up and use in some future projects. Tree had to come down and just couldn’t bear to see it all go to the chipper and burn pile. I plan on milling it up with a granberg Alaskan chainsaw mill. I also grabbed up a few rip chains and fitted them onto my Husky 460. Here are a few pics. to start with. Will be posting up more pics. as I go. I was finally able to start millin...

Medal Chest #5: Fitting It All Together

04-22-2013 10:57 AM by RaggedKerf | 1 comment »

Note to my readers—-this is the secret project I’ve mentioned a few times.  It has consumed my shop time since February.  That’s why it’s been so slow on the blog for the last few months.  Now that it has been delivered, I can post the details. I spent today doing the tedious work of smoothing out all the dovetails.  I used the 1” chisel, mallet, and the new Moxon mini-bench to make all the dovetails as tight as I could get them.  There are still plenty of gap...

Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #3: Mortising the old fashioned way and a first panel glue-up

07-19-2014 06:43 PM by CharlesA | 1 comment »

We’ve continue on in the project. After crosscutting his first board by hand—getting him comfortable with hand sawing—He did a some rough crosscuts on the miter saw and some finer ones with the crosscut sled on the table saw. Here is his first cut on the miter saw. His commitment to doing the cuts safely is really comforting. The box has a small divided shelf held in place by mortises in the box. We’re doing them the old-fashioned way so he can learn to use ch...
