Toddlers Workbench Build #1: The silliest of stuff is always worth doing right?

11 days ago by Airframer | 11 comments »

Over the past month or so my 15 month old son has been following me into the shop to “Help” out in there. This has quickly become his favorite past time and goes running for the door every time I refill my coffee mug (an action that always leads shop time lol). Once in there he is enamored with my workbench and all the cool wheels and pegs on it. So the decision has been made that he shall have a bench to work on when helping in the shop with daddy. Basically it will be ...

Holly's Jasper #32: Holly's Jasper #32

11 days ago by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 1 comment »

Base is shaped and ready for finishing, doesn’t seem like my wood guy has been able to find a stabilizing chamber big enough to do this, so it will likely be done with grain filler. Last part of the project will be an epilepsy awareness bow affixed to the front of the base, dyed purple.

Pennsylvania Spice Box

12 days ago by sandhill | 15 comments »

I was doing a little research on spice boxes and came across a lot of information the boxes were used for storing valuable jewelry, pieces of lace as well as yes, spices. In 1875 some spices could cost as much as 4 days wages (a way of establishing value in those days) as you may have realized they were a luxury item made of high-quality wood and decorated with fine inlay. Considerable skill went into there design and construction. The intricate interiors and drawers employed false bottoms or...

Sturgis Motorcycle Rally #6: Wrap up

12 days ago by Monte Pittman | 23 comments »

If you have been following along with this, you know that I didn’t get rich this past week. Of course going into a show you have delusions of everyone there leaving with one of your products and you go home with part of their money. Reality says that it is never that easy. I achieved covering the first cost level of the show. What it cost for the booth, expenses to put on the show, etc (this is where you include hired help). The second cost level is the cost of replacing the products t...

Computer Table #3: Dovetails and paint

12 days ago by mpmitche | 0 comments »

I couldn’t bring myself to kreg the drawers so I went ahead with hand cutting the dovetails. It was good practice and went quick with such a short drawer, only 6 tails all told. A little planing on the sides to get the width of the drawer just right with a snug fit and a coat of paint on the carcase. Finally I decided to give a hand carved drawer pull a go. Not sure what color to go with the desk, the white is a little stark but makes a good base coat for now.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1378: A Perfect World - Panel 12

12 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I honestly don't know what is with me these days. Last week we were away for five days, and it has taken me almost a full week to catch up with things. I am finally nearing the 'bottom' of my email box and getting everything answered and caught up. Soon I will be able to move forward onto new designs. I have some ideas as to what I want to do next, but they aren't quite 'there' yet. By that, I mean that I am not quite clear in the direction that I am heading with ...

Morris style glider #1: Design and adapting to fit onto glider base

13 days ago by Orange008 | 1 comment »

My wife and I have recently found out we are expecting. Once I knew, I just had to make something for my wife and soon to be child. I know it is great to have a rocking chair in the baby’s room to rock them to sleep. I have always liked the look and movement of glider rockers. I figured it was the perfect opportunity to build one. I got the core plans from Wood magazine’s issue 112. I followed the plans for the chair pretty much exactly. Due to the low p...

Tool Chest #2, Build an end panel

13 days ago by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, frame is almost done Maybe some tweaking left. Needed to find out what size to finish cut the raised panel to. Around 11-1/4 by 13 or so. Got out the “Speed Square” and laid out a few lines. Running the circular saw a different direction this time, with most of the weight on the non waste side Set the saw to almost cut through the panel, and NOT the benchtop. Next, maybe make some beveled edges? A Millers Fall #14 Jack plane for the work. I marked out ab...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1377: A Different Kind of Project

13 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Yesterday I had mentioned that I was going to spend the day getting caught up on some paperwork. I did spend a couple of hours in the morning doing that, but as so often happens, later on in the day I got somewhat distracted and wound up spending the day doing an entirely different type of project. Such is life . . . I had mentioned a couple of weeks ago that Keith was in the process of building a new speaker/amplifier system for our home. While we already had a really awesome system tha...
