King Size Shutter Headboard #1: Making a Frame and Attaching the Shutters

08-30-2014 04:41 PM by iamcliff | 0 comments »

We were given a king size bed frame and mattresses. We previously had a queen, but with two kids hanging out in our bed before bedtime and sometimes even sleeping in the bed it was getting too crowded. My wife’s birthday was approaching, so I asked her what she wanted she said she wanted a king size headboard. Watch part one here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2BpQSzr7Rg

Twin Pipe Vise

07-20-2014 09:08 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

I’m tired of seeing all these moxon vises and not making my own. They are pretty expensive. I really need something to act as a front vise on my bench. This takes care of that problem and it also raises any cutting that i’ll be doing by 7 1/2” (which helps out the back). Here is my version of the moxon vise using two pipe clamps. Check out the video. Please subscribe to my channel and check out all the other videos on there.

Update to woodspotting

03-06-2014 04:11 PM by siavosh | 5 comments »

It’s been a couple of month since I built woodspotting.com. It grew out of the frustration of current RSS readers, and the tiresome aspect of opening 20+ woodworking blogs to see if they had new content. Today, the site gets a regular and growing number of visitors, and tracks more than 100+ woodworking blogs (and growing). It hopefully sends some more traffic to the blog authors and encourages them to keep posting fresh content. Also personally, woodspotting.com saves me a lot of time ...

Woodshop Build #2: My Space

03-04-2014 12:59 AM by VarnellWoodworks | 8 comments »

A lot of you are probably used to seeing woodshops full of tools and sawdust. Some even have woodshops that the brothers Green would be jealous of. Well, I have neither. In my first blog in this series, I shared my opinions on table saws and told you which one I was purchasing. Today I will be talking about the space that will eventually become my woodshop. As you can see, it looks more like a garage than a woodshop but I’m going to change that over the course of the next few...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1134: Getting Back to Routine

09-23-2013 11:38 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Good morning on this beautiful Monday. Some time over the weekend, the season of autumn crept in and it is amazing how profound the changes in the morning are even though it is only a few days old. As I wake up each morning, I notice that it is just a bit darker outside, and the cool, crisp air simply smells of the change of season. I look across the road to the trees along the river and each day notice that they are beginning to blush a bit and every so slightly the leaves are changing c...

Organ Leg Coat Rack Video Series #1: Getting started

09-21-2013 02:14 PM by iamcliff | 5 comments »

In progress: We inherited my father-in-law’s mother’s organ when she passed away. It has been in our extra room, but now that we have a second kid, it had to go. It didn’t work and we didn’t feel right trashing it, so I gutted it and decided to make stuff with the wood. The first thing I am making is a coat rack for my father-in-law’s office out of the legs. It was my wife’s idea and I thought it would be pretty cool and challenging. Since i...

Kid Friendly Project- A Garden Tote

08-02-2013 12:40 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

This project is a great way to get the kids involved. They can do most of the machining, definitely the sanding, and then they can get creative with the painting. This is made with 2 used fence pickets/panels that are 5’ long. They sell new ones for $1.50 at the big box stores. This take only a couple hours to make (including paint drying time). Please like, share, and subscribe to my YouTube Channel.
