There is a PDF Download of the side template under the video in this post. Template Link

Drill Press Station - Table/Lift/Fence/Vise/Drum Sander

430 days ago by steliart | 6 comments »

Drill Press Station – Table/Lift/Fence/Vise/Drum Sander My drill press is a small inexpensive bench top type, and until I get a good floor type one I am trying to get the best out of it. One of the first things I did was to change its old pole with a stainless steel one. Why stainless steel? Well it was the only piece I could find that matched the diameter and you can slide up and down smoother. So the pole got a lift-up of about a foot taller. One of those ikea wire sh...

So follow along if you are interested.Also, I want to thank everyone again for voting and ...

Shaker Oval Boxes #1: A whole new angle on woodworking

1682 days ago by Andy Brownell | 12 comments »

I recently came back from a woodworking class with Dale Barnard in Paoli, IN this weekend where he taught me how to make a set of five Shaker oval nesting boxes in cherry. Dale’s workshop is set up to build just about anything, and he offers some pretty awesome classes for beginner through advanced woodworkers. Initially, I was surprised at how relatively simple the construction a set of one of these seemed to be. I guess that is pretty standard for anything from the Shakers. Howeve...

Building a Moving Fillister Plane #1: Precursor and laminating the body

68 days ago by Wally331 | 4 comments »

Intro- I’ve been using a lot of wooden planes recently and have really come to enjoy their lightness and the feel of wood sliding on wood. Obviously there are a ton of vintage woodies out there; however, I quite enjoy making my own versions of them. They are a lot cheaper (if you have some time on your hands) and you don’t have to deal with old warped wood and a host of other problems you may encounter. I can’t say I am an expert by any means, I’m simply sharing my...

Intarsia Basics #2: Preparing Your Wood and Pattern for Cutting

861 days ago by KoryK | 18 comments »

Intro: Hello to all and welcome to the first installment of Intarsia Basics. Before we can start cutting we need to select the wood we want to use and get our pattern ready. Wood Choices: I prefer to start with stock that is one inch thick because that gives you a lot of depth that you can work with. It will require a little more sanding on some areas but it will help to give your piece a 3D look. It is your choice if you prefer to stain your wood to achieve the colors or use exot...

Sitting Bench Step Stool #1: History, Templates and the Initial Leg Shaping

782 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 15 comments »

After all of the support I received during our recent website troubles, I knew I had to come up with a special way of saying thank you. I considered sending out cards or personal emails, but I ultimately decided that the best way to show my appreciation would be to build one of the most requested projects ever: the Step Stool Sitting Bench. The reason this one gets requested so often is because it happens to be featured in our show’s introduction. The PastThis particular stool was actua...

Evolution of my router planer #1: First Version: 1.0

1401 days ago by TZH | 9 comments »

One of the things I found out very early on in my type of woodworking is that the slabs I use in my projects are often in dire need of planing. The problem with this is the thickness planer I had was not large enough to accommodate the width of most of these slabs. So, I began reviewing my old book and magazine libraries and surfing the Net to try and find something else that might meet the need for the type of work I planned to do. The results of my search were mixed. The very first opti...

“Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.” Aristotle…Greek Philosopher (384 BC – 322 BC) Many of us are surrounded with pictures that we cherish.

Simply put we have pictures and art work that are everyday reminders of many pleasant thoughts and memor...
