Just for Fun... #33: Too much Enthusiasm=More Work!!

09-30-2010 10:35 AM by littlecope | 17 comments »

Simple, Quick, Easy… It seems like I always start projects with these notions! In the event, however, they never turn out that way…It has been a while, almost two weeks, but the project is still the same, a small table for computer viewing/breakfast in bed. When we last visited this affair it was in this state…I took apart the top once again, and ran all the pieces over the jointer to clean them up…This was a huge mistake, a real bonehead move, and the worst part is I ...

Live in the shop...Creating bandings for Wood Inlay

10-24-2010 07:44 PM by Bob Simmons | 9 comments »

Today we are creating bandings from scratch. We’ve got some ideas for the wood inlay designs so we are ripping on the table saw, sanding on the drum sander, and gluing. At some point we will cut banding segments on the dedicated miter saw and then gluing some more. Plus we will be doing a bit of video shoots for the next release. Feel free to stop by. visit…The Apprentice and The Journeyman ...........Learn more, Experience more!

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1103: The "Perfect" Weekend

08-12-2013 11:29 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

What an incredible weekend I had! It was a combination of accomplishing, relaxing, beautiful weather, good food, a Saturday night “date” and even some beach thrown in. I can think of little more that would have made it much better. It started off like any other weekend. However, the weather was absolutely supreme. It was sunny and warm, without being either too hot or humid, and it made Saturday just an all around pleasant day. Keith had to run into work for a couple of hour...

Coat of Arms commission #2: 10 Hours now.

07-10-2007 02:00 PM by Roger Strautman | 8 comments »

These pictures are of a few stages in the next 6 hours of carving. Because the maple is so hard this is a slower process than normal. I am using at times this Foredom hand carver which is speeding things up and is it working out great. That’s all until next time!

Project - Lever-Action Boxes #1: Committing Myself

10-17-2007 12:14 PM by Dekker | 3 comments »

Well, I’ve finally gone and done it. After blogging about books on boxes , I got the itch to make some boxes! I haven’t delved extensively into boxes, and it has been ages, so it’s like starting new again. My wife makes jewellery that she sells online and at craft shows. She has a show sometime in late October, and another in early November, and I thought it would be a great idea to offer some jewellery boxes next to the jewellery. I therefore have a motivational deadline...

Bowling Alley Workbench #9: The Top #1: Tip, Tap, Top

07-21-2009 04:13 PM by PurpLev | 15 comments »

finally getting to work on the actual bowling alley part of the “bowling alley workbench”, although I really found Damian’s comment on a previous installment entertaining, and might refer to it from now as the “Alley Workbench”...lol. The top as can be seen in the sketchup model is made of 6 different components: Main Slab (nails and all), Dog holes strip, buffer strip, 2 skirts (front and back) and a breadboard End Cap. In reality this will change slightly...

Upper Cut Woodworks: Fish Tank Stand #1: Upper Cut Woodworks: Fish Tank Stand #1

05-05-2010 07:51 AM by Matt (Upper Cut) | 3 comments »

Hey there lumberjocks, now that the dresser is done and delivered (yippee), I’m starting the next project. My buddy from my day job that has been helping me in the shop needs a new stand for his saltwater fishtank. We spent Sunday night breaking down the sheet goods and such. Check out the first post in the series over here at my blog. If you’d like to see the entire dresser series, click here. I’ll be trying out alcohol soluble dye and spraying some general fini...

Spalted Maple Projects #1: Milling Lumber

01-13-2012 04:37 AM by David Craig | 8 comments »

A few months back. Mike (jockmike2) and I went in together on a couple hundred board feet of air dried lumber at Raven’s Farm, a mill that is local to us. The cost came out to about 1.25 a board foot which was a steal as far as I was concerned. Boards have been setting for a bit, with a dozen getting acclimated to the shop. I don’t have the space for a jointer so have been working the boards with a recent plane addition and then running them through my Ridgid. Woodworking i...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #694: A Fish Out of Water

05-07-2012 11:27 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

We often hear the saying that “something is better than nothing” and I for one, am one of those people who truly believe that. Recently, I had a problem with my Excalibur scroll saw and while it is out of commission as I wait for the part, at least I have my back up DeWalt saw to use so that I can still get my work done. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that it will be easy. I spent the last couple of days drawing and working on other things. But yesterday I got to the...
