American Hanging Cupboard #2: Stock Preparation - Rough Dimensioning

10-29-2009 07:18 PM by Mark D. | 3 comments »

So unfortunately I got carried away actually working rather than documenting the process, but I did snap this photo before I quit for the night. So far I’ve gotten all the face frame pieces cut down to final size and have marked out the tenons on the rails. I also cut a test mortise in some scrap that went through the same milling process so I can test the fit of the tenons as I cut them. The dado stack is in the saw ready to rock. I will begin cutting the joinery tonight(I ho...

Lightbox for Lithophane display...

10-22-2010 05:08 AM by Arbo | 3 comments »

I am making lithophanes, and needed to come up with a display box that they could be mounted in and backlit for display. I drew up the following as a basic idea: I don’t have a jointer or plainer or table saw (just a CNC router) so I ‘borrowed’ a friends fathers workshop and bought some alder, and went to work cutting… and here is the actual item so far: It is 13” x 15” x 3.75” deep. I am staining them now (as can be seen in the ...

Building Falling Waters Lamps #7: Socket to me!

05-12-2011 04:57 PM by HerbC | 3 comments »

I didn’t get any woodworking done on this project yesterday. But I did do something productive. I ordered the lamp sockets I will use. I’m using the Leviton 6151 Full Range Electro-Mechanical Incandescent Lampholder Socket Dimmer. It lets you use standard incandecent bulbs and dims them thru the full range. I found them at for $12 each. Could have ordered thru Amazon but shipping was a lot higher for some reason… Well, thanks for checking in and ...

Shop & Tool Growing Pains #1: New House, No Tools

10-23-2012 04:19 PM by pendledad | 3 comments »

This blog is aimed at documenting my thought process about this hobby and I hope it can server as a guide to newcomers looking for help. Let me give you the background … We lived in Charlotte, NC for 6 years. We had my son, and were pregnant with my daughter when the neighborhood “turned”. Driveby shooting, armed home invasions, police helicopters, etc… Needless to say, we decided to move back home. We’re both from New England, so coming back was good f...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #239: On to the Saw!

01-28-2011 02:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

We wound up getting about a foot of snow yesterday. It is still falling now, but only a few flakes at a time are slowly falling. It isn’t that cold out though and it looks like absolutely no wind, as the flakes are falling straight down and look as if they are doing so in slow motion. It really is beautiful. I passed on my walk yesterday. I probably should have gone, but I was finishing up the last two drawings for this next catalog deadline and some things still needed tweaking....

Entryway Bench #2: More Assembly, Old-Growth Pine Milling

11-15-2011 05:54 AM by superstretch | 3 comments »

FrameI finally got some more work done on the entryway bench.. I anchored the seat frame to the walls and then constructed the legs cut and screwed in underneath. I originally wanted to make the entire thing out of beams and barn boards that I had outside.. but simplicity triumphed and I resorted to 2×4s. In the long run, I think they’ll stand up better and would hold to the walls without the screws pulling through. — Seat/StorageAs you can see from the pictures...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #78: Another Skating Figure Complete - Meet "Sonja"

08-20-2010 01:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Yesterday was a good day for tying up loose ends. It seemed that about half the day was writing to customers and answering emails. I enjoy that part of the job though, because it really lets me get to know my customers a little better. I also get to see some of the wonderful work they do. I also have some personal correspondences to keep up with. I have one friend in particular who wrote me yesterday. She is a friend from high school, but we became friends more so when I kids were bab...

Here is the second part of the blog .I am fitting and trimming the bottomThis is a simple square board glued to the bottom of the box and made oversize by about 1/4” to allow for trimming.After the glue has dried I trim off the excess on the table saw using my sled with the set up shown tilting the blade to 15 degree.I make the cross grain cuts first and then cut along the grain .The stop blocks are set up to allow the bottom of the box to slip under to keep the box tight against the fa...
