Kitchen Shelf: Step By Step #1: The support units

03-19-2014 08:15 PM by Greg Guarino | 2 comments »

We have more kitchen stuff than fits in our cabinets. We decided that a really large shelf could serve to hold some of the nicer-looking pieces, opening up room for the more utilitarian stuff behind closed doors. This started as a simple, innocent slab of wood on some store-bought brackets, but got waylaid in the design process. :) Here’s the design It’s big, about 94” long by 12” deep. It also incorporates two techniques I haven’t tried before (I’...

Plow plane restore

03-12-2014 09:34 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Have cleaned the body’s sides of old nasty varnish. Using just a hand plane set as fine as I could set it. and then flattened to sole with a #78 rebate plane. Seems the was a LOT of wear and tear near the front Now, it is all flat and square to the skate. Skate has been ccleaned up a bit. It will remain on the plane, since things might move a bit if it comes off. Fence was also cleaned up, to remove all the old varnish. The rods had a problem, though. Both had spl...

Cutting board from builders' samples

03-01-2014 08:24 PM by sgmdwk | 4 comments »

When some friends from church learned I was a wood worker they brought me a box of samples they had left over from building their house. These were squares of finished wood, about 5 to 6 inches a side and around 3/8 inch thick. Some were stained, some painted; some were milled, some flat. There was alder, oak, birch, mahogany, walnut, hickory, cherry. “We were sure you could find something to do with them,” they said. It was an interesting pile. But what o do with it? I mad...

This blog will be about building that desk. More for me to track my progress than anything but anyones welcome to come lea...

Outfitting the workshop #9: A vise, a vise, my kingdom for a vise ...

02-18-2014 01:05 AM by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

I’ve been wanting to build a bench for a long time now. My brother bought me a LV large vise quite awhile ago which had been the major money stumbling block at the time. Well life happens and I never built the bench. I have been using an old oak table that I had scrounged from somewhere, here it is: So today being “Louis Reil Day”...an excuse for the government to give us a day off in February… I figured I’d catch up on some projects that have been sittin...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1247: Small Changes Can Make a Big Difference

02-16-2014 01:14 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I woke up this morning to yet another round of snow. This time, it is accompanied by wind and you can barely see across the road to the river. I would almost call it a ‘blizzard’. This winter seems particularly brutal for many people, but at least for us here in Nova Scotia, we have had breaks of warmth and even rain in between the winter storms which continue to melt things down to bare pavement. It does keep the piles of snow manageable. As usual, I don’t mind it ...
