Christmas Presents: Early & Late

12-27-2010 04:43 AM 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

Coffee table #2: A new normal...making lemonade

08-15-2014 03:58 AM by Mark Shymanski | 7 comments »

Life has thrown some pretty nasty hardballs at us this past year and a bit and my kids and I are starting to recover. We we’re sitting in our rec room (do people still call ‘em that? :-) and my daughter said it would be nice to have a coffee table in front of the TV. I’d been trying really hard to think of something we could all do together so I half jokingly said why don’t we build one. Lauren and Paul jumped on the idea. We got out the tape measure and use...

Tablesaw dust collection

08-28-2009 12:33 AM 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...

I need help in deciding what to build next.

02-19-2011 01:35 AM by GaryK | 57 comments »

I am hoping that some of you can make some suggestions on what I should make next. Whatever I make I will do a blog on how I made it. If it’s really involved, maybe a multi part blog. Well, the house is already full of furniture so I can’t make anything big unless I get rid of something. (Very hard to do since I built most of it.) Here’s what I’m looking for: 1. Something I have never made before. 2. Hopefully something unique.3. Something that will expand my ...

Kill the Treble #13: The Cats Eye

04-06-2012 07:23 PM by thebenchroom | 1 comment »

Yesterday I had left a combination of wood glued onto the top horn of my bass, and wrote about the uncertainty I had attempting this technique. No practice run, with real bullets on my first try. The sequence of Maple veneer, Mascassar Ebony, Maple Veneer was shaped this morning and too my surprise it came out better than expected. I’ve attached the second eye that will cover the input jack, and with any luck it will come out like the first. Over the next few days I’ll be reassembling the...

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #8: Cut, Sand, Repeat. Cut, Sand, Repeat...

03-26-2013 02:46 PM by Ethan Harris | 4 comments »

Hello Readers! There is a glimmer of light in the progress department of my small business. The brightest spot being that orders keep coming in at a steady pace. The Ugly has reared its head however in the form of doing the same process, over, and over, and over again only to repeat it again and again… I find myself trying to stay ahead of the orders, trying to not think about the fact that in the course of three weeks I have made over a 1000 square 1.5×1.5×1.5 inch blocks&...

my new shop #1: my new shop

03-29-2009 02:30 PM by wooleywoodsmith | 3 comments »

as some of you might know we are moving. Its a good move but never the less it is a move. We are very fortunate to work for the mgmt co that oversees our new place. Fortunate in the fact that we can get into the place before we move in. Our actual move in date is May first and it is vacant now. Our new house is a side by side duplex, 2bedroom 1 3/4 bath with a mostly finished basement. The previous tenents really trashed the place big thyme so there are alot of new repairs being done. ...

Possible Inlay Project - Suggestions??

06-19-2009 02:21 AM by Derrek LeRouax | 3 comments »

So, I am in the process of a myriad of “home” projects (shelves in kids rooms, re-finishing painted furniture, attic shelves, etc…), and have been spending my free time trying to figure out my next project. I am big on “form follows function”, so I want any project I endevor on to serve a purpose. I also want to continue my journey in woodworking, so I want to try something I have never done before, hence INLAYS. I have seen some great projects with even bette...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #55: Back to "Normal"

07-28-2010 01:15 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It feels really good this time to come down from such a hard push. It is funny, but it takes a while to gradually sink in that the urgency is no longer there. I wonder if it is chemical thing in our brains or something. I am sure adrenalin has something to do it. I spent yesterday glowing in the aftermath of the previous couple of weeks. Much of the morning I caught up on correspondence in between applying coats of finish to my kitchen table. Miraculously, none of the cats decided to ...

#1 Phillipine mahogany & bubinga box, how I made it.

11-29-2010 02:24 AM by TheHarr | 3 comments »

These are my original design ideas for making my jewelry boxes. These diagrams may be a little confusing because I did not intended for them to be published. You guys are so nice, I had no choice but to share. This design was prevously used for making cigar humidors. I don’t have good pictures of them—sorry. I have lots of detailed instructions for every step to make this box. Just ask and I’ll add more to this blog. The rough cut diagram shows the sequence t...
