Slab Table #1: Slab Table......pt 1

08-20-2013 12:58 AM by HickoryHill | 0 comments »

The sister company to where I work is an arborist service, tree removals (sometimes), pruning, caring, fertilizing, risk management, etc. So I tend to get one of the first cracks at stuff that comes in. I was out looking at other logs they had brought in and noticed this guy sitting there. Fortunately it has just rained or else I would of missed it. The cross cut of the tree is what caught my eye. From a Maple tree that was starting to decay. Along the outer edge is some spalting too. ...

bench vice and starting out

04-21-2014 11:21 PM by Lazy_K | 1 comment »

Hi, one of the investments a beginner woodworker thinks they really need is a nice cast iron bench vice. Now, I’ve been doing this professionally since 1982. In @ 1994 I got a used /discarded slab of laminated rock maple with a vice on one corner. some school threw out several student benches with the vices on them. some local persons “salvaged” them from the dumpster. my truck may have been used and I got one…. I never use it.I had gotten used to by then a homemade v...

shop jigs/furniture/fixtures #2: sharpening markers

08-14-2013 04:00 AM by Tugboater78 | 1 comment »

Was work in in shop today when I get a call from my girlfriend. Her 3yr old boy was in daycare with a fever and an apparent massive headache. She couldn’t find anyone else to get him and asked if I could. So shop time got cut out, no real biggie, I brought the shop to the coffee table while we watched Wall-E. Been meaning to make some of these for consistent bevels on my planes and Chisels , but kept putting it off. I use a cheap sharpening guide just like I seen the Schwarz. For chi...

Built-In Library Wall #2: Phase II - Let the Milling Begin!

08-21-2012 04:46 PM by Cindy Braunheim | 5 comments »

After about 135 hours of designing and collaborating, I made the purchases of the sheet goods and rough hardwood lumber. The first challenge was, “Where the heck am I going to store this while milling?” I bought 3/4” and 1/4” Maple ply, prefinished. I am truly looking forward to working with the Purple Heart lumber, knowing full-well that it will take its toll on my tools. The top piece is a slab of figured Maple, intended for the base cabinet door panels. Nice...

Salt and Pepper Mill finishes

05-04-2011 04:26 PM by Craig Havran | 1 comment »

So I’m going to be turning a salt and pepper mill this weekend and I’m curious as to what kinds of finishes I should use. I was planning on a sanding sealer and maybe a friction polish, but does anybody know if the salt from the mill will damage any of this? should I use a poly? Thanks everybody…. i love this site.

Wall Unit Project #8: WooHoo! Mosaic Panel is done! Thank you Katie Couric!

04-03-2013 06:50 PM by DS | 7 comments »

All of you who’ve been following this blog know that the Mosaic Panel design has been the main sticking point from the beginning. Finally, I was flipping channels the other day and saw Katie Couric’s new show and she has a mosaic panel in the background of her set. The colors and style are perfect for this wall unit! I paused the screen and got out my phone and took a picture. I started with a Honey Maple Stain over a sealer coat, then, using the pics as a guide, I l...

Guitar Rack #1: My next project

06-04-2012 12:01 AM by paullymac | 1 comment »

I decided to make a guitar rack to hold up my guitar off the floor. It has spent several years on a cheap metal stand on the floor. I got some sapele outs to use for the short parts, but the backbone of the rack will be made with maple. So far I made the bottom supports (with the general guideline/plan to the left of the supports) I plan to dovetail the supports onto a plank across the back. This first one is hand done with a hand saw and chisels (I’ve used a handsaw and ro...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1091: Better Late Than Never

07-30-2013 12:08 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Today’s post will be really, really quick! I was just beginning to write and a big storm came through our area. It went from light to dark very quickly and the rain came down in buckets for a bit. Naturally, I shut things down and unplugged them, as it wasn’t worth the risk to keep online. In any case, all has passed and it has calmed down and I am going to write quickly and briefly (Yes – I can!) just to tell you a couple of things that I wanted to share with you. Fir...
