Shop Projects, how “Nice” should they be?

02-10-2018 05:56 AM by IantheTinker | 31 comments »

I am building an outfeed table for my table Saw, just a short one to extend over the outboard motor. Then I will hinge a folding table onto the end of the short one. I am doing this to save on dedicated space while allowing options for assembling s9me larger upcoming projects. My only issue is that I keep gett8ng hung up on how nice these things need to look. I see the guys on the YouTubes making these really nice outfeed table with melamine surfaces and oak trim and whatnot. I am on a seriou...

Santa's helpers and other elves.

12-15-2017 11:28 AM by EricTwice | 1 comment »

Things have gotten crazy here, but this is normal for the Christmas season. First we get the big projects that must be done before the holiday entertainment happens. (2 bathrooms, 5 kitchen modifications, 2 dining-room tables and repair a set of chairs) Next we have the special Christmas gifts, (a cane, a walking stick, a doll bed, 2 closets modified, a custom bench seat, and they keep coming in) Then there are the things my wife has asked me to make, (spoons, cutting boards, pen and...

This week in the shop: Project Paralysis

11-17-2017 03:49 AM by Woodbutchery | 1 comment »

So I’m working on Christmas presents and making progress on that, and I’ve finished several small projects that keep the wife happy and make living just a tiny bit easier. With all that productivity and project finishing, where does the paralysis come in? Four years ago, almost to the day, I received several board feet of what I thought was mahogany but might actually be sapele. It was my first (and so far only) wood gloat . It didn’t take me long to figure out what I ...

The Overhang Chair in Walnut

08-09-2017 11:37 PM by LeOmkr | 3 comments »

The basic structure of this chair draws Inspiration from the design of the iconic ‘Conoid Chair’ by the great japanese-american woodworker George Nakashima. Through progressive scaled models, design critique and study of human ergonomics the design of this chair is evolved from the basic concept of the nakashima chair. Made entirely in one slab of 4” thick walnut (type of a hardwood), I have also tried to stay true to nakashima’s philosophy of creating mini...

My Esperanto Woodworking Book Project #5: Published Articles: Toy Crocodile

07-08-2017 12:50 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

This is the last one for a while. We’re caught up to the available articles now. I built this as a Maker’s Care project last year [link] and as a project for an article in Esperanto. The crocodile has a back story in the culture of Esperanto speakers as it is said that it doesn’t speak Esperanto, (more exactly, it speaks any language aside from Esperanto when Esperanto would be appropriate). Esperantists sometimes joke and say ’Ne krokodilu al mi!’ [Don&...

Mahogany Shop Dust Extractor / Air Filter

02-27-2017 10:14 PM by heldercruz100 | 1 comment »

View on YouTube As we all know woodworking involves a lot of sanding, and that makes a lot of dust in the air. So yesterday I found an old extractor, it was from my growroom but still works. I made a box with joinery, painted the fan black and as usual gave it a mahogany finish, I think it makes a nice contrast, what do you think??

I am looking for someone who can make a steel/iron band for a dining room table I am making. Any ideas? It would be 2” tall 1/4” thick and 226 long. I want the metal to be stippled and rounded on outer edges. Anyone have any experience with this?

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1817: Habits

02-01-2017 12:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

As we begin a new month, I realize how quickly January has slipped by. Time has always seemed so relentless to me, but lately, I find that to be true more than ever. Many of you have noticed that I haven't been writing as regularly or as often as I used to. After over six years of daily posting, I find that I have, indeed, backed off a bit and have taken a bit of a break from it. It felt odd at first, but soon it became something of a 'habit' to NOT write (funny how that happ...
