Commisions #3: Mirror Frame #3

2255 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 9 comments »

Well over the last two days i have been able to really get some good solid work done on my mirror frames. first i was able to mill all the lumber to final width. then it was time to cut the piece. i don’t have a long miter bed with a stop block so i used double stick tape to hold the rough identical pieces together to give me exactly the same piece. the first picture is putting the tape on and the second is all the piece cut to final length. Then i cut the groove in th...

Kill the Treble #12: Affixing the Cat's Eye

844 days ago by thebenchroom | 0 comments »

Walking around my bench more times than I remember puzzling over one of the coolest touches I’ve seen on a bass guitar. The “Cat’s Eye”, something I’ve only seen on basses made by Carl Thompson. I’m almost sure he invented this trick and if not the technique the name for sure. Unfortunately I hadn’t seen a cats eye until I had already begun shaping my bass and just in my general knowledge of woodworking, this is something that should be done before the rasp even comes out. I’m working a f...

Pochade Box in progress #1: Pochade box

254 days ago by Jon1094 | 3 comments »

Several people have inquired about the Pochade box I am building for my wife. A Pochade box is a painter’s box that can be transported out into the field. Varying in size, shape and style they can contain any, all or none of the following: paints, pallets, brushes, solvents, canvases, etc. What a Pochade box really does well though is holds a canvas while one is in the field painting. Mine is made of walnut sides with a bookmatched maple top. The base, sub-base and drawers are ma...

Finishing

1546 days ago by Hisingwooddesign | 9 comments »

What Type of finish do you use? Finishing is a common question among woodworkers. I know for me when I first started finishing it was almost dreadful. I loved to build things but when it came to finishing I almost wanted to leave it bare wood. I built a oak dart board, I guess you could call it a case several years back and when it came time to finish it I ruined it. I applied two many coats two fast and didn’t take the propper steps to apply a quality finish. When it was done I thr...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #42: Successful Changes

1475 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I woke up an hour early this morning from a dream. I am sorry to say that it wasn’t a lovely dream about woodworking or designing or anything so creative. It was one of those startling dreams that shook you a bit so that you couldn’t get back to sleep. I laid there for a while and I finally knew it was futile to try to get back to sleep and I gave up. Besides, just think of what I can do with this extra hour today. I’ll look at it as a gift and we will go from there. :) ...

Christmas Presents: Early & Late

1310 days ago by spunwood | 5 comments »

I was gifted by a very generous Lumberjock with a Skilsaw. I just recently used it to crosscut some hard maple, and I wanted to say thank you again to Jim C (it works great!). Also, I wish all of you here a Merry Christmas. That was the early Christmas gift. The late Christmas gifts are for my parents which I am just now working on: A wine balancer & A cutting board. You can see all three gifts in the the pictures

Tablesaw dust collection

1797 days ago by kosta | 9 comments »

Yo whats up everybody so I got my skil tablesaw yesterday and it took about 3 hours to set it up and I filmed the whole thing so part 1 of that series will be out next week. I made a few cuts with the saw and it is a nice saw the only problem is there is sooooooooo much dust that goes everywhere and I didnt realize this when I got it but the entire bottom of the saw is open so what I will probably do is take the saw off the stand mount it to a piece of plywood and put a dust port on that. The...
