Never too young to scroll saw

04-27-2013 06:16 AM by Takara | 15 comments »

I wanted to share these photos to encourage everyone to get your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and young friends involved in your work. My son is 18 months old and wants so badly to imitate everything we do. I put in the smallest blade we had and I let him help me scroll saw. My 3 1/2 year old daughter took to the scroll saw like a natural. (Must be genetics) She has spent most of her weekends in the garage with my father and I for glue ups and such and she is no stran...

Making Two Sets of Matching Heirloom Saws #1: The 10" Dovetail Saw

02-12-2016 02:20 AM by summerfi | 20 comments »

This blog entry is a continuation of an earlier blog post titled Making Two Sets of Heirloom Saws: The Gent's Saw and The Table Saw. The making of these saws is an ideal topic for a blog series, but I unfortunately didn’t think of that when I made the original post. I’ve now turned this into a series, but there is no way to go back and incorporate the original post into the series. That is why this post shows as #1 of the series even though it is about the third saws in the sets....

Batteries, Batt...ttt..eries, Batt...t...t..eries - why wilt you die...

08-22-2008 10:24 PM by PurpLev | 10 comments »

power… give me more power… I’ve had this cordless dewalt set for several years, and in the last year It has been stored most of the time. I have 3 18v batteries that would rotate between the tools, so I would always have a fresh battery to swap with… until recently – all 3 batteries died, don’t hold a charge – and in the last week won’t even charge at all … AAARRRGGGGHHH…. so now I have a collection (9) of pretty yellow tools t...

Table Saw Sled

07-18-2007 05:18 PM by che | 5 comments »

The home renovations are nearing an end (for now) and I am making some Victorian style base boards to replace the ones which were torn up during the renovations. More info on the base boards when they are installed. I need to scarf a couple of boards together for the longer walls and miter all the ends. The stock miter gauge worked fine for the smaller pieces but wasn’t up to the task when I tried to cut the ends of the 8’ long 1×10’s; too much torque. A crosscut sled was clearly nee...

Hand Tool Journey #45: Just A Quick Distraction.. Kids Handsaw Build #1

10-13-2014 09:28 PM by Airframer | 5 comments »

As I am smack in the middle of a workbench build for my 16 month old and we are currently waiting on a part to arrive in the mail I thought I would pass the time with a side project for the kid. We were strolling through our neighborhood dollar store the other day looking at Halloween decor and such when I came across a small 12” saw. As an actual usable saw I think I would have been taken for a ride with the $1 price tag but as a starting point for a junior sized “...

Woodworking at the Fair...

07-27-2008 07:30 AM by RobH | 10 comments »

Hey all, I just had to show this off. The family and I went to the Orange County, VA fair today. This is an old fashioned agricultural fair that is held on the grounds of Montpelier, President James and former First Lady Dolly Madison’s home near Orange, VA. The kids had a blast looking at the animals, going to the petting zoo, and doing other things that they had to do. While we were there, my oldest spotted a Virginia State Forestry Service booth with a log and several two-ma...

Murphy Bed Side Cabinets #3: Side Pieces Cut - Shelves & Dividers

05-16-2009 03:04 AM by Gene47 | 3 comments »

Yesterday I cut the side verticals of both the left and right cabinets. I then matched them up as to what sides I wanted for the inside and outside of each cabinet and routed 1/4×3/8 rabbits on each piece for the backs. Then I cut all of the dividers and shelves to width and length. Since I am making some alterations to the plans to accommodate my antique doors I wanted to see how things were going to look. These cabinets are too narrow to use a double door and too wide for jus...
