Dutch Tool Chest #6: Tongin' and a Groovin'

03-12-2015 04:31 AM by Tugboater78 | 3 comments »

After i finished the previous steps i decided, despite what Schwarz says about it, to put some finish on the inside. No pictures, figured no need. I masked off all the edges i didnt want anything on, then applied roughly 2-3 coats. Really all i did was use up the last of my Zinnzer clear waxed shellac, will apply some wax in the future. But onto what this part of the blog is about. I bought, off ebay a year or 2 ago, a decent Stanley #45 with a basic set of cutters and most of the parts...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #236: Calm

01-25-2011 02:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I can honestly say that things have been going fairly smoothly around here. It makes for a good life, but also a quiet blog. I finished compiling my submission list to the wholesaler yesterday and sent it on its way. We have almost 20 new designs to offer between us, which isn’t too bad considering that the last deadline was only about two months ago. If you also consider that the holidays were thrown in there and I spent a bit of time on gifts, we didn’t do too badly. I ...

Circle cutting #1: Lazy Susan..the making of?

03-22-2009 12:51 PM by degoose | 3 comments »

This will definitely be a work in progress and will take a while so bear with me. This is all very alien to me. In this blog? I will endeavour to show some jigs I have built to cut and sand perfect circles. Tool of Choice Is the Bandsaw. While circles can be cut with a router and trammel I find the bandsaw is far quicker. the Jig Is basically an extention table with a sliding dovetail dohicky for adjusting the different radii for larger or smaller circles. I will be making some La...

Hoosier Cabinet Refurbish #2: Quick update

03-19-2013 09:56 PM by Philip "Pip" Storm | 3 comments »

Just a quick update to let you know where I’m at. Rough sanding is done and so are most repairs and modifications. Some finer sanding and a back for the top then it’s painting time. I also wanted to share the modification I did to the “roll up door”. Here is a pic of the original track. This setup seemed kind of chincy. The door rolled up upon itself which, to me, seemed like it could lead to binding. Not only that, I was afraid the slats would rub t...

Not so cheap walnut Table, Part #4

04-04-2013 12:32 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok Got the aprons sorted out. Next time, check the width first. Got out a power tool for the next part of this build Unlike a bearded Guy with flannel Plaid shirts, I have just this as a router , for now. It was set up for the dovetail jig, with a 1/2” collet. Had to did around in the kit’s bag, and find the 1/4” collet, still in a zip lock bag. never been used. Switched them out, installed a cove bit. i wanted to run a cove around the top’s...

This will be a bed. (I hope!) #1: Rough cutting / oops I don't have enough wood!

01-21-2012 03:38 AM by LucasinBC | 3 comments »

My wife and I are expecting a new baby shortly, so our youngest child will be abandoning his toddler’s bed for a “big boy” bed. It’s only a twin mattress – but it’s pretty massive for a four year old. And quite the step up from his toddler’s bed. I’ve been slowly getting into woodworking for the past two years. Mostly I have been preparing myself for a project such as this; the majority of my builds have been jigs, a workbench, cutting gui...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #734: Much to Do Today

06-16-2012 10:46 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I want to get an early start today. The printer is already up and running and is busy spitting out the 500 patterns that are needed. I remain impressed at the quantity and quality of the printing from this Canon printer. It is a small one from the Canon IP series and cost under $100. Prior to Canon, I was a big Epson fan. Several years ago I took a Photoshop class at a local college and the instructor swore by them. At the time I had an Epson, and wasn’t too thrilled with it. I...

Adjustable Height Rolling Outfeed Cabinet #1: Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

06-02-2011 08:53 AM by newTim | 3 comments »

But the past I am condemned to repeat is the creation of a new design that I have never done before, am not certain of the existence or availability of key materials and hardware, and possess the barest notion of what it is I want the thing to do. Welcome to my world. I knew I wanted a sturdy outfeed table atop a cabinet that would provide much needed storage in my small shop and would provide another work surface. If that were the extent of my desires I’d have whipped it out in n...
