Grinder Sculpting #4: The Grinding

12-29-2011 07:13 PM by JoeyG | 13 comments »

Well my shop is now a wreck, my eyes are full of dust and I had a blast. LOL. Lets start with the box and grinder. As you can see I drew in the lines on the handle to match up to the box. In the next pictures you will see the grinding process. I thought long and hard about making a video and decided that there wasn’t really a way for me to do it at this time. Maybe I will revisit the idea in the future. I start at my line and gentle pull into the center. I then go to the n...

A dedicated Mitre Sled for the Tablesaw

07-04-2010 05:52 PM by Bob Simmons | 21 comments »

Has there ever been a time that you’ve struggled to cut a perfect mitre joint? Believe me, there’s no need to feel alone. All of us have had our challenges with the mitre joint at one time or another. So, let’s say that we want to build a woodworking project like a picture frame and we are looking to create four dead-on mitres joints. What’s going to be the woodworking tool of choice? We could use a chop saw or a mitre saw for our joinery. We could use a fine handsa...

Multi-Function Workbench

09-08-2008 04:06 PM by DanTheLumberJockMan | 10 comments »

It all starts with a sheet of plywood From there I added the toe kick area The base is put together almost exclusively with pocket screws and glue Then the four sides are added to form a box and the fan was installed. I was lucky to find this squirrel cage fan on Craigs List for $20 Here is the outlet side Then I added these guides which create a funnel shaped section inside the bench. Air and dust gets sucked in through holes in the top, down the angled s...

Cutting Board pricing help.

10-03-2012 03:28 PM by amagineer | 11 comments »

After two more surgeries and almost a year, I am getting back to the shop to start woodworking again. Last year I made a “quilted cutting board” and have a few people offer to buy it, but I have no idea what to charge someone for this type of CB. If anybody that sells CB’s could help me I would appreciate it. It is 12×18 x 1-3/8 thk and made from Black Walnut;Sugar Maple;Shedua;Yellowheart;Goncalo Alves;Santos Mahogany;Paduck. It took me two weeks to finish.

Finishing Tips #1: Blotch Control (Homemade) Water Base Pre-Stain Conditioner

03-24-2011 07:45 AM by pjones46 | 44 comments »

I have been working on a project in Cherry and before I finished the desks I decided to try out some of the General Finishes Dye stain but on the scrap test pieces the blotching was driving me nuts. I came to this site and tried all the suggestions until I came across the discussion proclaiming that Charles Neil’s pre stain conditioner was the way to go. Bought some, tried it and still had minor blotching but it works well. Watching his video he said it was a water based PVA enhanced produ...

Updated 3/1/15 as links were changed when Popular Woodworking bought out American WoodWorker…. One of the parts of woodworking that many would like to do better is finishing, and that includes me. On my quest to obtain the background I have bought books, talked with professionals in the field, and searched high and low on the internet to find the answers to my questions. Some of the questions arose as I was completing a project but others were generated by what I had read. As I have got...

A Little Cabinetree #1: The Concept, the Goals and the Challenges.

11-21-2010 02:48 AM by shipwright | 8 comments »

When it comes to building boats, I guess after 30 years of it I am a professional, but as a hobby woodworker I’m pretty new. Boatbuilding has given me lots of skills and abilities with tools but the scale of projects and the individual manual skills required to make small cabinets and art furniture are totally different. I am a real beginner at this stuff and am having a ball trying to learn everything at once. I retired five and a half years ago, following which my wife and I rebuilt o...

Hollow Form Turning - A Trifern Class #2: Wood Selection

04-28-2011 11:02 PM by trifern | 14 comments »

Wood Selection Almost every hollow form I turn is from local hardwoods and is turned green. Why use green wood? Green wood is relatively inexpensive, easy to obtain, and easy to turn. It is nearly impossible to find, or afford, large kiln dried wood suitable for turning large pieces. Construction sites, firewood cutters, arborists, and landscape recycling centers are all excellent sources for wood. The biggest problem I have with green wood is my greed. I bring home more wood than I can...
