Guess Who's Back In The Shop?? Me!!

11-27-2010 12:16 AM by matt garcia | 23 comments »

Man it really feels good to get out in the cool weather, and continue where I left off last year before my surgury! Well I cleaned up a little bit, soaked my WWII to remove the walnut pitch from the last woodworking project, and got back to work. I didn’t know if I would ever be able to stand again. When I got out of the hospital, and went back to work it was hard to stand, even for a few minutes. See the surgeons remove the vein from your right leg in order to do the bypass. My ...

Projects #8: end grain boards... lots of them

11-27-2012 03:42 AM by NedB | 23 comments »

I’m gearing up for the LOML and son to hit the craft show market in the spring. (my job conflicts, and they’re better salespeople). She wants at least 100 boards of various sizes on hand… here’s the latest batch. Not quite ‘done’ so I’m not posting a ‘project’ of them… that’s freshly after a single wiped on coat of mineral oil. I’ll give them all another session of sanding, then at least two more coats of oil before st...

"Art Box" Tutorial #7: The Medallion

07-01-2009 06:32 PM by Andy | 23 comments »

Updated 1/15/12 Now we need to cut a recess in the lid for the medallion to set down into.DONT cut your medallion until you have routed out the home for it.I typically make the medallion about 1” to 1.5” smaller on all sides than the lid depending on the box size and the piece of wood I have for the medallion. We are now going to make a simple jig for a router to set on and run back and forth making several passes of incrementally deeper cuts. There are a several ways to do ...

Moxon Vise Benchtop Bench #1: Milling the pieces

01-01-2013 09:29 PM by lysdexic | 23 comments »

When I ordered the BenchCrafted hardware I also ordered the hardware for the Moxon vise. Not only was I inspired by BrandonW’s bench but also his Moxon vise. So, it has been sitting in my shop for about nine months. Brandon’s Moxon Vise The plan is to make a Moxon Vise Bench-top Bench because when I doing fine work I find myself slumping over for extended periods of time. That kind of zaps the fun of it after a while. Furthermore, I admit to being spoiled when comes to h...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #2: You NEED this mini-cabinet maker's bench! (Part 2)

11-18-2011 09:29 PM by StumpyNubs | 23 comments »

The camera comes back into the Stumpy Nubs Workshop to further document life in a small semi-professional shop… Includes tips on hand cut dovetails, utility chisels, resawing wide boards on the table saw, glue-ups, and a lot more! This is part 2 of Episode 1. It begins with making the CN Box, then continues the “amazing mini-cabinet marker’s bench”. My favorite part is the footage on cutting tiny dovetails by hand, big ones by machine, and huge ones with a hon...

Machinist Toolbox #1: Design - Feedback Welcome

12-06-2010 04:38 AM by PurpLev | 22 comments »

I’ve seen machinist toolboxes here and elsewhere a couple of times, but never felt they would be useful for my woodworking needs as they seem to be aimed at organizing smaller items/tools/etc, so I never paid much attention to these boxes. With my recent interest in machining, I find I need a toolbox to hold all my small gauges, tools, keys, wrenches, tooling, measuring devices, etc. A machinist toolbox would be perfect for the job. I’ve looked around, and to be honest- these b...

In the shop #1: Back to work - Simple Cutting board

09-22-2013 11:53 PM by WayneC | 22 comments »

I’ve been out of the shop for quite a while for a variety of reasons. Recently, I’ve been cleaning, organizing and reworking storage for my tools. Also, I have been doing some restoration work in the Kitchen. Rebuilding cabinets, refinishing and rebuilding doors. One of the chores that needs to be done is to replace the pull-out cutting board. This is the old one. It fits into this slot in the counter. The only real design changes I am planning is to make the ...

Watch Box #7: OOPS!!

02-02-2012 05:26 PM by Andy | 22 comments »

This is why its been awhile since my last post. One of the problems with shaping wood to this extent is any flaws show up. Figured Bigleaf Maple, aka Western Maple, Oregon Maple, Acer macrophyllum, can have pits, bark inclusions, etc… Well, I found a few during the final shaping. I knew I was getting pretty close to maximum depth in one corner, but I couldnt leave that little black spot glaring at me. Then I was all the way through and exposing the bloodwood below, nothing ...
