Curly koa

05-20-2010 06:38 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 3 comments »

I recently received a piece of curly koa I ordered in the mailUpon opening it i realized this is one of the most figured woods I had ever held in my hands.The curls and the variations in color tones was incredible. The most spectacular I have ever seen! I honestly did not want to cut into this piece.A few hours later I went out for errands and stopped at borders to get a coffee and see if there were any new woodworking magazines I didnt have. I took a walk through the woodworking book section...

Monogram End Grain Cutting Board #1: Getting Started

07-12-2013 03:26 PM by Gene47 | 3 comments »

Greetings & Salutations, I just got the news a little while back that my youngest nephew is getting marriedthis December. I am looking forward to that as it will be a good excuse to go toFlorida for some good times with some of the family. I wanted to come up with a different kind of gift but also wanted something thatI would not have to carry in my pickup. Being kind of practical since the P/U gets18 mpg and my Prius gets 51 mpg that would take a big dent out of the travel budget. ...

Hot Rodding a Harbor Freight Bandsaw. #4: Dust port mods, mostly complete...

11-22-2009 05:08 AM by dbhost | 3 comments »

I know, I have been kind of quiet lately. Not that I haven’t had projects, but they haven’t been woodworking related for the last several weeks…. (Do you guys want to hear about me setting up a tuner with custom tune and cold air intake on my pickup?) There is one bit of woodworking that has gotten at least reasonably complete and tested. The band saw dust collection upgrade… You see the Harbor Freight band saws ship with, well nearly the same port that the Ridgi...

Construction Grade Toys #3: Little more work done

08-20-2011 05:56 AM by sIKE | 3 comments »

I got back into the shop late this evening and got a little more work done. As you can see from the pics the kit (wheels etc) for the truck came in today. I had to recut the carriage piece this evening as it was a bit more narrow than the hood. The next and most important is I had to work out is the difference from the tractor trailer plan and the dump truck plan to get the Hoist Support and Hoist components of the dump truck box aligned to the tractor trailer. I think I have everything worke...

Spindle Lighting

07-29-2013 12:12 PM by Henri Monnier | 3 comments »

This ‘thing’ about getting really good light near and around the spindle on my CNC table has been a real PITA for me. I have tried various ideas from the web, and other places. Many worked reasonably well, but each had factors, shadows, etc., that I did not like. I think finally I have arrived at a very good solution that works like a champ, is easy to install, and the price is right! I have a “Kent’s” dust shoe on the base of the router (love that shoe!) but ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #83: Do We Ever Have "Enough" Wood??

08-25-2010 12:53 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I actually got up early today so I must be excited about something. I really don’t know what though. Maybe just work in general. I awoke at about 5:30 and really didn’t think at all about going back to sleep. Some mornings are just like that. There is so much going on in my head right now. Yesterday we spend the latter part of the afternoon sorting and stacking our wood supply and doing a kind of mental inventory of what we have. It is really quite impressive. Although t...

Steve Ramsey's chess board #4: Getting somewhere, no going back form handplanes

12-28-2013 08:52 AM by Jake | 3 comments »

Alright, from last entry I have done a few things, including decided on the end design, and new glue-up of the chess board itself. Also, I am now in the dark abyss of handplanes – no coming back. Bought a stanley sharpening kit (angle holder) which made a world of difference for me, I am getting such lovely shavings that I can’t bear to throw them away, this is crazy, but I love it. Anyhow, this is just a post of a lot of pics and also progress report. In the process so far ...

Murphy Bed #3: Part 3

04-18-2009 04:12 PM by Gene47 | 3 comments »

I spent a couple of hours going over a suggestion that maybe I should make the bed outer case deeper so I can make the cabinets deeper so I got out the cutlist program and put in the new numbers and no matter what I came up with I was at least one sheet of plywood short. We choose Mahogany for this project and at $73.00 a sheet along with a 100 mile round trip to get it we just went back to the original plans. So off I went and using my new Gorilla Gripper carried the 1st sheet over to ...

Sierra Nets Prepares for the Fly Fishing Show, Pleasanton - Part 3

02-21-2012 10:29 AM by Greg | 3 comments »

This is the final blog about my preparations for exhibiting Sierra Nets at my first show-The Fly Fishing Show in Pleasanton, Ca. on Feb. 24-26, 2012. I will be leaving this Thursday morning and driving up to the Bay Area with my best friend, and Sierra Net owner, who will be manning the booth with me Friday-Sunday. It’s about a 7 hour drive from the Disneyland area. The building of the display has been quite rewarding. I love the process of figuring things out almost as much as ...
