Wood Hinge Box

11-17-2010 02:40 AM by Roger | 12 comments »

I’ve been fiddlin around with this…. expermenting. Had a few pieces of Oak n Walnut layin round. It needs glued, sanded, and finished still. I used 2 different sized woods on the front, back and sides. I finally got a chance to get the “Router Fence System” from Woodline out that I purchased at the WIA show in Sept. I’m real happy with this product. Hope I’ll have more boxes in my future projects. WOW! I can’t believe this was 100 days ago...

The Band Saw Accessories...made in the Shop #1: Cutting Thin Strips on the Band Saw

11-12-2010 09:30 PM by Bob Simmons | 7 comments »

Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.Thomas Edison, Inventor and Scientist (1847 – 1931) Often times in our woodworking shops we need to cut thin wood strips for our projects and in many cases the table saw is often considered the tool of choice by woodworkers. However, the band saw is proving to be the winner in my workshop especially when very thin strips of wood are needed for my wood projects such as wood ...

Band Saw Rip Fence...the Video

11-11-2010 01:17 AM by Bob Simmons | 6 comments »

“Necessity is the Mother of Invention” Plato….Ancient Greek Philosopher…(428 BC-348 BC) This short video shows the beauty and simplicity of the Band Saw Rip Fence. The L-shaped fence in the video was made from scrap MDF in 10 minutes and was available for use immediately thereafter. You will notice a protective strip of oak that was glued and pin nailed to the rip side of the fence. This will allow the fence to be used for a long time. The first time you use it y...

Bad Accidents Happen

11-09-2010 05:49 PM by mrg | 42 comments »

The other day I found that no matter how safe you try to be accidents do happen. Case in point, jointing a piece of oak using two push blocks to run the board through, the board exploded the blocks flew away and my left hand went into the blades. I amputated the top of my ring and middle finger and part of my index finger. It could have been worse. I am on blood thinners so this posed a whole bunch of complications.So I am stressing my fellow jocks, if you are not comfortable with a ce...

French Fry Friday #1: November 5, 2010

11-05-2010 03:31 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

I started a theme for each day of the week. Fridays will be “French Fry Friday” and I’ll be talking about some sort of accessories that I build. Why “French Fry Friday”? I always here “would you like fries with that?” Fries are a side item and not part of the main meal. Same thing with the accessories or smaller items that I build. I blog about the big stuff but neglect the smaller stuff. So hear is a chance for often overlooked items to shine. This first one is a bookcase that was part of...

Bedroom Wall Unit #8: Spraying is becoming better

10-27-2010 10:51 PM by depictureboy | 2 comments »

I want to thank everyone who commented on my spraying conundrums the last couple weeks… I am now adding 2 dixie cups of denatured alcohol to 1 quart (sprayer cup) of dewaxed shellac…it is going much better. I also realized that the sprayer shipped with the largest needle installed. I downgraded to the smallest and that seems to be going much better now too…. You cant see it in the picture, but the finish is super clean…I put on about 6 coats last night and yo...

10-27-2010 02:37 PM by littlecope | 16 comments »

I started feeling lousy a little over three weeks ago… woke up one Monday morning with a chill that I just couldn’t shake. I don’t know if it was a cold, or the flu, or what, but I haven’t felt “normal” until this week…I didn’t even have any specific symptoms, and it wasn’t a knockdown, drag-’em-out thing either, I just had the blahs… didn’t feel like Woodworking… I didn’t even feel like hanging out here on LJ...
