Roy's Mystery Mallet #1: Mallet - 1, Glen - 0

03-03-2012 04:31 PM by pastorglen | 7 comments »

Dear “Saint” Roy, I hate you. Sincerely, Mallet Muttering in Pennsylvania ——— Actually, I don’t hate Roy. And I’m not that disappointed as to this first attempt. If you haven’t gotten the April 2012 issue of Popular Woodworking, you need to get it… now. They’ve got a great article by Roy Underhill on making the Mystery Mallet that you’ve been seeing around. ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #631: Teaching Through Baby Steps

03-03-2012 12:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

There are days when I feel like I do not accomplish all that I want to do. Usually, if I sit down and really think about it and list the things that I did throughout the day, I find that things aren’t really as bad as I originally thought and that in actuality, I did achieve a lot. It is just that what I choose to do takes time and thought, and I need to remind myself of that sometimes and not expect everything to be done in the blink of an eye. I am currently working on four patte...

Modern rustic oak sideboard build.

03-03-2012 09:45 AM by gavinzagreb | 6 comments »

My first blog. Bound to be a little incoherent.Modern rustic I hear you repeat in your mind ? Yes, the style does exist. It might not be called that, in fact it might not even have a name, but I have seen many examples of it in various style blogs.This is the biggest and I think the best thing I have made ever. The need – We have a very old farm trunk (picture to come) that is full of all sorts of bits and pieces. It is too small and we (my wife) no longer want that style. The ide...

To be or not to be? When William Shakespeare wrote Hamlet, Do you recon he was thinking about a wood lathe? I just returned from an auction, and this is what I drug home with me. You ask why??? Because I only gave $10 for it. It was interesting and I figured if nothing else, It had $10 worth of timber in it. It needs cleaned up to be sure, but I believe it is hickory, or at least parts. After unloading it in the shop, I sorted out the pieces. Now I’m not sure if I want to put it back to...

This will be a bed. (I hope!) #2: Rough cuts / rough parts / glue everywhere / and a baby

03-03-2012 02:33 AM by LucasinBC | 0 comments »

Wow it’s been a solid month and a half since my last blog entry and I still have no bed. But I do have a new baby and I can say that for a good four weeks or so my time in the shop has been minimal. That being said I have been able to finish rough cutting everything and complete putting together the four legs for the bed. Some notes on my progress: I finally got all the wood I needed and rough cut it all. Here it is all on my workbench. This actually wound up taking me lon...

Here are some more photos showing the progress of my saws cabinet. It fits perfectly where it’s supposed to then when I connect the outfeed table and Biesmeyer style fence to it there should be no problem with maintaining alignment.I think I’ll put about two feet out the back for the outfeed table not including the mounting/hinge area. I’m going to make my own hinges instead of purchasing them; just brackets with dowels for the pins. Then, probably 8...

Rushing through the home repairs. #2: Sanding on 2 walls done, started cutting and installing the trim.

03-02-2012 04:12 PM by dbhost | 5 comments »

I’ve got 2 more walls left that need to be sanded, actually the sanding finished really… I am using one of those hand held drywall sanders for fear of creating a dust plume that looks like a mushroom cloud with a power sander. Not to mention quickly clogging sandpaper… Anyway, I digress… The trim around the water heater stand is done, mostly. I am still working on transition to the original wall / trim. I have no coping saw, so I am hopeful I can pull this off with ...
