Woodworking For Therapy #5: Learning By Mistakes

208 days ago by Steve Kreins | 7 comments »

This past week I learned a great deal from my mistakes. I’m glad I have a good scrap pile. Some of the things I learned were, while making practice cuts, with my new compound miter saw. First the laser guide is handy, but not accurate. I tried to find an adjustment but there isn’t one. It’s slightly off by different amounts depending on the angle of the cut. I learned that if I eye ball with the tip of the blade, with the saw not running, both at the front and rear of the...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #15: Happy Christmas and Best Wishes for the New Year to One and All!

211 days ago by PhilBello | 1 comment »

I decided to make some last minute stocking fillers for family and friends, this year it was Cheese Boards, I bought some hardwood sheets from HomeCenter, unfortunately there was no description as to what wood was used to make up these sheets, but it had a nice grain.To make the process easier, I decided to make a another Spindle Sander which could be used on the Pillar Drill, or as is described in ‘The Family Handyman’, a drum sander. The idea being this is clamped on the ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #14: Table Saw Taper Jig

217 days ago by PhilBello | 1 comment »

When it came to making wooden wedges, my efforts were always hit and miss, however because hopefully, in the New Year sometime, we will finally be in the position to buy our own place, and one that needs a bit of work, I thought I had better start getting prepared. One of the things I will need, will be shims for putting in door frames, I have to be honest when it comes to finding tools or accessories you need, here in Colombia, it is very hit and miss. The reason I keep being given is,...

Education and torment #1: Canary wood Box

218 days ago by GeneR | 0 comments »

The box is 4” square and made from canary wood and walnut, with a birdseye maple and walnut top. This started as an idea for the wifes Christmas present and grew to a little monster. I first decided on the box size being determined buy the length and thickness of the piece of canary wood. the piece was about 28 in long 4 1/2” wide and 1/2” thick so 4” square gave me some screw up room. At this time I figured I would use a 1/4” piece of plywood for the bo...

Doll Baby Crib Project #1: Doll baby Bed

224 days ago by Dan Tindall | 0 comments »

So I’ve been looking for a project that I could use as a gift for my Granddaughter (almost 2) and this month’s Wood Magazine had it right there between their pages. A Doll Baby bed project seems exactly what I was looking for and would fit in with time that I have available.It also doesn’t hurt that I had almost all of the materials sitting in my cut off bin! So, I am now about 50% complete with this project and due to a couple of the parts that need to be made, I d...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #11: Picture Frames

237 days ago by PhilBello | 5 comments »

If there is one thing I dislike doing, it is making picture frames, but when needs must!... Following my six year old Colombian Nephew’s ‘passing out’ from Infants School last week, there were obviously a raft of photos, and unfortunately the next stop, was my door, so I had to do some quick thinking, because I no longer had my framing equipment. It was back to my old friend, YouTube, to get some ideas, and the easiest was a video by George Berry, which showed a simple an...

Gun Showcase/Coffee Table #1: Gun showcase/Coffee Table

240 days ago by vpbarnwood | 1 comment »

Here is an idea for gun owners that don’t have a gun case or space for a wall gun case. That being said it is not just for guns, you can display just anything that will fit in the case, such as coins, knick knacks, precious mementos. The dimensions are 5’ by 2’ by 18” when it will be finished. There will also be a drawer under the showcase in the center of the table. The wood used is reclaimed barn wood from my barn.

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #9: No Spindle Sander?...

245 days ago by PhilBello | 1 comment »

A spindle sander is something I have never had in my workshop, although I can see the benefits of having one, in the past I have used a multi-tool with the drum sanding attachments, but at the moment, I haven’t even got one of those, and needed to make a circular cut, just a fraction bigger. It is all too easy to set to, and find that you end up with a misshapen circle, but there is a simple option: all you need is a length of dowel (slightly smaller than the circle), or in my...
