Chess board with outlined squares

80 days ago by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

Howdy, Joe asked me to create a little Blog about how I created my chess board. I’m happy to do so. I’ll just remind everyone that when you are seated at the board, the corner square to your right is white. I’ll edit this post this week to add illustrations. Truth being told, the cutting board and box makers are far better at this than I. This design is just a basic cutting board without using end grain. I didn’t allow for expansion so the whole thing may just explode on me one day. Us...

Hand Tool Journey #27: Stanley SW #246 Miter Box Restoration #1.. What have we got here?

80 days ago by Airframer | 5 comments »

Just received a Sweetheart era #246 Miter Box. It is in decent working order but really needs a good cleaning to get everything moving like it should again. My original plan was to clean and be done with it but… like usual I can’t just leave well enough alone. Here is the state it arrived in.. Complete with the trip mechanism! Saw is in great shape with no obvious signs of pitting.. only the tote needs help. It also arrived with one of the 2 stop ...

Contractor Clipboard, Why didn't you think of this!

87 days ago by CueballRosendaul | 4 comments »

If you use a clipboard on the job, you know how difficult it is to find a place to put it down while you handle the tape measure or tools you’re using. There’s never a good place to put it except to tuck it under your arm where it often gets dropped. Solve that problem by building a clipboard with a spring clamp on the back and you’ll never look for a spot to put it down again. Here's a YouTube video which shows more details.

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #63: I QUIT

89 days ago by jerrells | 13 comments »

After many months of thinking on the decision, looking at different ways to do this, having as much input as could be offered, considering all of life’s alternatives, I have decided to give up, quit, stop scroll sawing as a hobby, part time activity, part time business or for the most part anything else. Yes, perhaps I will make one or two items per years that I personally choose to give away as presents BUT nothing more. Many factors have gone into the decision – here are but a few. 1....

My New Shed

90 days ago by chuckv00 | 1 comment »

We were looking for a garden shed for our tools and gardening stuff. We have a big backyard so we wanted a 10’ x 10’.The instructions were easy to understand and it took us about 6 hrs to put up from the time we opened the box. We had a bit of trouble putting on the last part of the roof, but all it took was a quick email and they got back to us quickly.We have since had several people comment on our ‘good looking’ shed and are surprised how inexpensive it was. Happy t...

The Rebuild #7: Progress sort of

97 days ago by Monte Pittman | 19 comments »

I am about 80% functional in my attached garage. I would like to salute all of you that work in smaller shops. I know many of you think that 20×20 is not a small shop. I assure you it is if you build bigger items and were used to over 4 times that much space. I have much more organizing to do, but I feel very cramped. I am used to having several stacks of different lumber available in the shop at all times. Oh well, it sounds too much like whining now. I have nearly completed the firs...

Flexing rod construction

97 days ago by Zeiler | 3 comments »

instead of putting tension on the arm itself, the Davinci catapult uses the flexibility of two wooden pilars called flex rods. I will used the mortise machine to create the cradle for them then I will attach them directly to the catapult.

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #62: Where to fine the old, olde scrollsaw patterns

102 days ago by jerrells | 1 comment »

As I have been involved in scrolling for about four year plus my interest has become the older, more detailed, intricate patterns. Like the ones produced, to my knowledge, around the turn of the century. Some of my present and a lot of my new projects will focus on these types of patterns. I have done some extensive research as to where to find these types of patterns. Yes I am well aware the several web sites have some of what I am talking about. However paying $15 for a single pattern vs...
