Shop Remodel #39: What's Behind Door #1

01-27-2016 02:14 AM by bearkatwood | 15 comments »

I managed to get the right door of my tool cabinet fitted with its’ selection of tools. I decided to make the right side the cutting and shaping side. The saw till occupies that area so it seems appropriate. I started with holders for my most used dovetail and carcass saw. One has a carved handle and one does not so I built the holders respectively. I used leaves to hold the saws in place once in. Next I moved on the Japanese saws, which to be honest plagued me and they ar...

Shop stuff #34: The final episode

01-26-2016 09:08 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

I finally got around to editing and completing the video series on the essential oil cabinet that I made for my son for Christmas. Lightworks is still a bit of a chore and will be for a while yet, but it is not locking up and being frustrating like Windows Movie Maker was. I still have a long way to go, but it is fun learning. My son liked the cabinet and most people who have laid eyes on it do to. It was a big complex job and I find that shooting video while working makes it go almost ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1686: Color My World

01-26-2016 01:26 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I am going to just do a short post today. It has already been quite a busy day and I need to stay ahead of things. Yesterday was busy and productive. Among other things, I was able to do a lot of the ground work for my next project. (The one I am creating for Toletown, that I mentioned yesterday.)  This project is taking some thought and experimentation, because I am trying a technique that I haven't really seen done before. That doesn't mean it is difficult or that it hasn&...

Side project: Dovetail saw restoration

01-26-2016 09:09 AM by blue77 | 8 comments »

I picked up this old, rusted, bent, beat up hand saw a few days ago. The plan is to make it my new dove tail saw. I am a novice to restoring saws and I’m pretty lousy at cutting dove tails. I’m still going to spend most of my time turning things on the lathe, so nether of those skills are going to improve rapidly. But when I need a break from the lathe this is what I’ll be doing. The pin on the handle has “Warranted Superior” on it with a picture of a lion and unicorn under a crown. With a b...

Double Single Bed #5: Bed Bolts & Final Assembly

01-25-2016 02:55 PM by ttocsmi | 0 comments »

With the dry-fit of the headboards complete, it was time to drill holes for the bed bolts. (Sorry, no pictures. I’m sure you can imagine what holes look like.) The 3/8 inch holes through the posts were done earlier on the drill press (see part #3). Two were off-center by about 1/16 inch, but the rest were spot-on. To bore into the rails, I set up the mini-jig below for each joint. The rail is held in place using some scrap 4×4 and clamps. The shoulders are flush with t...

My Small Log Cabin Workshop #1: The start of my journey into woodworking

01-25-2016 01:28 PM by Jordash | 2 comments »

Hi everyone, I’m very new to lumberjocks and fairly new to woodworking. I intend this blog series to show how I got started and the first projects I took on, which were all about setting up my workshop. Then I hope to update the series each time I update the workshop, which as we all know is a never ending project. I’ll start with a little history, my wife and I converted a van into a campervan. We loved the project and I got bitten by the woodwork bug whilst building the ca...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1685: Christmas in January?!?

01-25-2016 01:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I had a truly wonderful and productive weekend. while most of the eastern part of the United States was getting pounded with a blizzard, oddly enough Nova Scotia escaped its wrath. In fact, tomorrow (Tuesday) and Wednesday it is supposed to be 7 and 6 degrees Celsius respectively. What an odd winter we are having. . . But living where we do, it didn't hurt to 'be prepared' for the storm, just in case it decided to change its path. It has been known to happen. We got all of ou...

Wood Trip!! #2: Getting the Shop ready

01-23-2016 04:17 PM by Phil | 2 comments »

Now that I have all of my lumber to start my projects, I need to get my garage in order and put together the shop in the best possible layout. But the first order of business is getting my vintage craftsman jointer in working condition. Oh as a heads up I very rarely and I do mean rarely buy anything tools new. Just a waste of money that can be spent on wood and more tools, but I digress. I have a Craftsman/King Sealey 101.03582 6” jointer with a fixed infeed table and adjustable outfee...
