Building the shop #7: THe latest addition to the shop...

01-01-2012 12:35 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 1 comment »

Today, I found a nice bandsaw for a good price and picked it up this morning. It’s not a Rikon or PowerMatic, but it will more than suffice for my needs at this time. Grizzly G0555 w/6” extension – this gives me about 10-12” of resaw capacity, so I can resaw the wood I have been collecting from broken furniture. Since I didn’t have to pay for shipping and sales tax and the accessories, it was quite a good deal for me. Here’s a picture of it in the ...

The week before Christmas, one of the waitresses at work told me of a customer who had come in and asked about the Signs and the Comments Box in the Restaurant… Who made them? Can the person make more or different ones?It seems the lady wanted a sign made for Christmas…Beverly the waitress told her who I am, and when I work, and that she could speak to me on Friday… But the Lady never called… I told my Girl Debbie about it, and how I would have told the Lady that it wa...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #7: Who said Stumpy isn't very sharp?

12-31-2011 01:32 AM by StumpyNubs | 25 comments »

What do you get when you combine unlimited resources with the greatest woodworking mind ever? This week Stumpy demonstrates the opposite of that… Stumpy turns his Work Sharp 3000 into a super-duper sharpening machine that works without sandpaper and accepts Tormek jigs. Then turns his sarcasm and twisted humor loose on the viewer emails. (Who knew handplanes and popcorn had so much in common…) This is part one of a 2 part sharpening series. Next week we make some fully adjus...

Walnut Coffee Table #3: First Shop Day & a Riving Knife Works

12-30-2011 05:17 PM by Lifesaver2000 | 2 comments »

I managed to get a few hours in the shop earlier this week, and have the lumber for the main base of the table cut to rough size. I cut everything a little long and a little wide to allow for any movement and fine tuning that I need to do, and I can already see that it was a good thing I did. After it sits for a few days, I will be ready to cut and plane to the final dimensions. For now I am dividing the project into different sections; the main base, the top, the interior drawer support...

Designing a cabinet.

12-30-2011 09:26 AM by TCCcabinetmaker | 3 comments »

So a few weeks back, I was walking through looking at a kitchen to bid it with an owner and the foreman overseeing his remodel. The foreman is his brother and my former boss/teacher. The foreman starts off with, we can do some open bookcases over here, and over here a cabinet over this laundry closet, and in the kitchen we can do some small cabinets above some big cabinets, and over here over the stove we can do some open shelves with radiused ends on them, and we can use heart pine, si...

Replacement Speaker Boxes #2: Clamps are off...

12-30-2011 08:22 AM by Nighthawk | 0 comments »

Been a bit slack and well christmas and all that no excuse… anyway both speakers now glued and set, the back piece is not yet glued in, so we can assemble the wiring to the actual speakers when finished etc. Clamps are off and the long slow timely process of sanding to get them loooking good. This will also hide any inperfections of our glue up… Doh Have taped newspaper over speaker faces to protect them the best we can, so no dust can get in anyway. Also have done the same to ...

Chessboard #8: Completion

12-30-2011 06:16 AM by CartersWhittling | 5 comments »

Hello. About a week ago I finished my chessboard project and gave it to my uncle on Christmas Eve. I do not have any good pictures of the completed project yet. My uncle’s wife is a photographer so I will soon get pictures of the board from her, then post pictures of the finished project. After the last blog entry, the first task I had to do was plane the underside of the board to fit to the groove in the frame. I just used my scrub plane to roughly flatten and bevel all edges until ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #567: On the Road to Recovery

12-29-2011 12:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I feel like a bear. I don’t think I have slept so much in years. I really must have been tired or just catching up from the past several weeks. I spent the majority of the day either sitting on the couch with a sleeping cat on my lap watching ‘The History Channel’ or curled up in my own bed with all three of them curled at their various stations around my legs. One thing cats love is to sleep. And they love having company in their favorite past time. From the time I ...
