Setting Up Shop! #1: Introduction & Where It's At Now

11-07-2014 02:38 PM by Jared | 4 comments »

Hi Everyone. I’m “new” here. “New” because I’ve been a longtime lurker, checking out projects, posts etc until now. Why now? Well, now I’ve got questions and, possibly, something to contribute. I’m a carpenter by trade, still a relative pup, just about 5 years, with a large portion of that spent framing. (Work for a medium sized company, the work varies from larger houses, townhouses, to 4 story condo buildings) Some finishing work as my sid...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1439: New Patterns are Posted

11-07-2014 01:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I intended to write a post yesterday, but I had a Java update that played a little havoc on my computer. Nothing major, but their attempt to install unwanted software really kind of irked me. I hate when companies try to sneak something on to your computer that you don't want. It is deceptive and I think a very poor practice. Unfortunately, Java script is a program that most of us need to function online and because of that, we are forced to have it (and all that it brings with it) on our...

Mike and Pat's Kitchen Remodel #9: Doors and drawer finished at last

11-07-2014 05:43 AM by MT_Stringer | 3 comments »

I have been slacking with updates. Here are some pics of the doors and drawer fronts. I ordered them from Evans Cabinet and Door in Brenham, Tx. They are some nice folks to deal with. Prices are competitive and the work is great. Last of the hardware installed. My sweetie had a special request for the utensil drawer. She showed me a pic on the internet and said “I want one like this in my kitchen”. I said OK. :-)Here is my version of it. It turned out nice...

Nakashima / Krenov Nightstand #6: Drawers and Door Part 2

11-06-2014 10:34 PM by Matthew | 1 comment »

The goal today was to get the main drawer finished and to hang the frame an panel door. First, I finished preparing the drawer back, panel, and sanded to 220 for the inside parts. Then on to glue up. But Wait! The drawer face was initially fitted to be tight in the opening… BUT… the pins on the drawer front were proud of the drawer sides (tail boards), meaning to get a flush fit, I had to take material off the edge of the drawer front, ruining the fit, and leaving me ...

rain, thunderstorms, and overdue projects

11-06-2014 07:11 AM by emart | 5 comments »

At this point I am at the 80-90% complete stage for a few projects though all the thunderstorms tend to sideline me since my shop is not grounded and I am not a fan of being cold and wet despite living in seattle my entire life. Current projects nearing the finishing line: a massive shelving unit designed to fit into a tiny house a santa throne for a auto parts warehouse project currently on hold:the frame for a bandmill I am constructing

Trailer remodel Part 1 (demo and framing)

11-05-2014 04:16 PM by Knightrider | 6 comments »

For those who have never had the “pleasure” of remodeling a trailer… here are some highlights (or lowlights) of our project thus far. We had been considering getting into camping. A friend had a trailer for sale for a good price, so we thought “hey, why not. Let’s give it a shot”. Time to spend some time cleaning and sprucing it up. This is when we realize we may have gotten more than we’d bargained for. There seems to be some water dam...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1438: Six More Sleigh Ornaments

11-05-2014 12:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

To begin with, I want to thank you all for the encouraging comments on the new ornaments. It really feels nice to have so many cheerleaders when I am making a new project. It makes all the hard work so much worth it, knowing that people appreciate what I am doing. I spent the bulk of yesterday working on cutting out the remaining six pieces, and I began the finishing  process. The cutting took probably about three hours and then I carefully sanded the pieces.  I was a little co...

Nakashima / Krenov Nightstand #5: Drawers and Door Part 1

11-05-2014 12:34 AM by Matthew | 2 comments »

It was one of those days in the shop… I was sorely tempted to leave today out of this blog, but I have decided on full disclosure. I don’t want to give the impression that this project is perfect, and I will admit that this is the most challenging project I have done to date, as I intended it to be. So here goes. I had milled up the boards for the rails and stiles of the frame and panel door, only to find them warped and twisted when I returned. I haven’t had this issu...

Current Project #20: Chair Saga Part IV

11-04-2014 08:41 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

Above: Take IV on the chair design. Sharp eyes will note that the seat is shorter and the wood overall is 1/2 inch narrower all around, 3 inches down from 3 1/2 inches. This version is screwed together without glue because I anticipate disassembling it and using the parts as patterns for production models. The clamps are holding the ledge pieces on which the seat will rest. They are glued on because I can work around them. Below: How to turn your table saw into a saw table: This chair...
