Getting my tools ready #19: MY STRAIGHTEDGE ROUGH CUTTING JIG.

04-30-2015 01:23 AM by DocSavage45 | 24 comments »

MY STRAIGHTEDGE ROUGH CUTTING JIG.First picture (jig with spalted Maple) The first picture you see is why I built the jig. If you have been following my journey and saw the other jig that I built for my band saw you know that this is the next step. I am truly in awe of what Mother Nature has given me. Picture 2 ( side view of completed straightedge jig with six-inch hold downs) The next picture is my rough drawing of what a poor man’s jig looks like. I decided to u...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1543: Main Carousel Construction DONE!

04-29-2015 12:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Yesterday was a really good day for me. A milestone even. After weeks of wracking my brain and trying to figure out the best way to build my "Scary-Go-Round" Haunted Carousel, I finally decided on trying a method and cut out the pieces and THEY WORKED! With all the woodworking and small project construction that I do on a daily basis, you would think that this would be 'easy-peasy' for me, but that really wasn't the case. If I were making this a one of a kind projec...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1542: Electronics Makeover Complete Plus NEW Plaque Patterns

04-27-2015 12:33 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I was so thrilled to have such a productive weekend! Even though I am 'busy' most days, it sometimes seems like there are times when we feel like we are working hard and in the end, little is accomplished. (Or little is noticed, anyway!) But this weekend, we made big strides on both our home organizational project that we began a couple of months ago, and also I made progress on my "Scary-Go-Round" Haunted Carousel. I woke up today ready to take on another week and the world...

Maple Cradle #2: Single day build!

04-24-2015 04:39 PM by CalumetWoodworks | 0 comments »

About 3 days after I got the parts for the cradle I broke out the plans…hoo boy….I may have bit off more than I can handle with this one. My shop is not equipped for larger projects. I have yet to get a band saw, table saw, router and router table, a planer. My shop is better equipped for smaller wood projects, pens, toys, puzzles, etc. So..following the plans I started with the two rockers. Have you SEEN U-Bild plans?!? OMG! What the heck did I get myself into?!? I tap...

Maple Cradle #1: The making of a family heirloom

04-22-2015 07:32 PM by CalumetWoodworks | 1 comment »

Awhile ago I found out I was going to be a first time grandpa! My daughter and son-in-law had been trying to have kids for over 5 years. They did all the tests, and fertility things. She found out she was pregnant (for real and not just “chemically”) in November of 2014. I knew then that I wanted to make something for them to keep in our family for a long time. Some of the criteria that I had in my head when picking a project: It had to be fairly basic. I don’t have a...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #19: Done!

04-14-2015 02:15 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

My morning was taken up entirely by straightening out a snafu with my medical insurance co. and the doctor’s office. What a pain. Sometimes I wonder why I have health insurance. Anyway. . . When I did make it out to the shop, I had this cutoff piece of walnut left over from the leg vise chop that was perfect for the deadman. I’m not really done with it at this point, all I did was rip it and cut to length, cut a rabbet at the top and the V groove at the bottom. It fits right...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #18: Top flattening, parts 1 and 2

04-13-2015 03:49 AM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

I didn’t write the final post last week as I was pretty busy with my 20th wedding anniversary. Last weekend I had planned on flattening the tops on my last day off but only got half of it done. I had decided to use the router to flatten it, using a sled and rails. I saw the technique on the Wood Whisperer video and thought it was a good idea. So I went to the big box and got two 2×6 kiln dried 8’ long boards for the rails. The first thing it to make the edges straight and ...

Tool Cabinet Build #17: Saw Till and Tambours #3...

04-11-2015 01:29 AM by Airframer | 5 comments »

A lot has happened since the last update just nothing that looks like much of anything has been done lol. I hate that kind of progress but it must be made to move forward. Yesterday I was able to finish up cutting and fitting the track for the doors to ride in. Something that should be done before one of the panels is immovable… yeah.. that got a bit tricky but with the help of some brass stock and some juice cans I got it all glued up successfully. After tha...
