Sunshine Yacht Tender Model #6: Buying the Wood

07-12-2010 03:18 PM by kharder | 2 comments »

I have recently moved and progress on the model boat Sunshine has slowed. When i find my camera i’ll post the pictures of the completed molds mounted and aligned on the strongback. In preperation for actual construction I began researching what types of wood to use. I found out about Jeff at HobbyMill ( on a model ship building forum and he has been a pleasure to work with. He has all kinds of wood you can order in sheets milled to spec or in strips. he is ev...

Curved Front End Table #5: Maple Back and Curved Cherry Top

04-23-2016 11:52 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

In this episode, I make the back from some maple stock. The back is ship lapped and will be installed in a groove in the back legs I also make a solid cherry top with a curved front. Now I will say I completely screw up the first attempt by, well just being really stupid and not paying attention to what I was doing, and using the wrong bit in my router. I do show how I recover from this mistake in the end. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #446: Birds and People and Things and Stuff

08-30-2011 12:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Thank goodness it has cooled off a bit! It was so nice to actually get a good night sleep . The past several days were so warm and muggy it seemed that I was up half the night and then woke up tired and felt like I didn’t get much rest. I shouldn’t complain because I know that many people have it much worse, but I will say that I was very pleased when the sun set last night and the air cooled down considerably. It was a very welcome change and made for a comfortable and restfu...

Platform Bed #2: Second day progress

02-04-2012 10:41 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

Design change on the fly. I decided that with our EXTREMELY limited storage space I couldn’t waste the space under one side of the bed so I made a long rectangular cubby that will have a door to store… maybe the vacuum cleaner? Not sure yet. I also decided on one larger drawer instead of two smaller ones. If I had made two they would have been a bit small. One drawer is a bit large but it will be better that way I think. The long box like cubby that the door will be added to...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #822: Finishing Up Some New Projects

09-19-2012 10:25 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I don’t know where to begin today. I suppose I want to start off by saying that I was rather overwhelmed at the response from the interview article that was in the Lumberjocks Emag yesterday. Not only did I receive many nice messages in all the places that I posted this blog, but I also received many private emails from people that I have come to know, and even people that I haven’t met until now. It brought things into perspective as to the scope of people that I reach here ev...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #4: More gluing

03-03-2015 02:58 AM by ic3ss | 3 comments »

Since I began woodworking almost five years ago and slowly building my shop, one of the things that has proven difficult for me to prioritize was buying clamps. We all know the old saying “You can’t have enough clamps”. And while this is true, the projects that I have mostly done didn’t require very many clamps. And the larger projects I did, I just made do with what I had. This bench project has spurred me to start buying parallel clamps, but at $40 + a pop and with s...

The drill box #1: Starting up

08-15-2015 07:35 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, the brace till is done, now I need a place to stash all the bits in…. There are a few more upstairs, in hiding I think. Had some thin Oak scraps. Chose four of them to makes a few sides to a box. Threw some tools out on the bench, to cut some through dovetails with. had an old, single fluted dovetail router bit. Used than as a pattern. The big red clamp to hold the pieces still while I chop away. Saw work was by a Disston No.5 backsaw, and the bandsaw from Te...
