My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1745: The Scroll Saw Room - My "Little Shop"

07-13-2016 11:21 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Today's post won't be too long, but I wanted to show the progress that I made yesterday. As I mentioned, getting things how we like will be a 'work in progress'.  For people like Keith and myself, we have little understanding of that concept. We like to have everything done quickly, efficiently and pretty close to immediately. We are just like that. But in life, things can't always happen instantly. I think that the older we get, the more we realize it. No matter...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1744: Routines

07-12-2016 10:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Routines. We need them for order, guidance and pacing. They help us set and keep goals and they keep us organized and productive.  Some people don't like routines, but I am one who embraces them completely. Perhaps that is from being around cats all of my life, as they are big fans of routines, as are many animals. The past several weeks have been anything but "routine" for me. From the time we first saw our new home early in March, I have been a bit out of step. ...

New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #1: rust removal on cast iron top & refurbish action multiple videos

06-28-2016 04:03 AM by MikesProjects | 8 comments »

Video links below… Recently I purchased an older 20” bandsaw. I need a larger bandsaw that can handle anything I throw at it.. I think I found that in a mid 70’s Rockwell 20” wood cutting bandsaw. It probably came out of a school wood shop. The motor is 2hp, it has two speeds which can be adjusted with the belt, it has already been upgraded with carter guides, this big boy saw weighs over 600 lbs. I made several videos regarding this saw which i’ll post below. ...

Shop machine rust clean up. #1: Rockwell Delta jointer

06-27-2016 05:14 PM by Trapper brandenburger | 0 comments »

Sometimes my shop is lucky enough to inherit tools from other shops when they either close up or upgrade their machines. When this happens, if it’s a machine we can use, they are often in rough shape and in need of cleaning and maintenance. This Rockwell Delta jointer for instance needed a good cleaning on the deck, a new power cord, and new blades. In this post I’ll show you how an old time carpenter tought me to clean the metal deck of a shop machine. Start by soaking the ...

From cluttered garage to organized (hopefully) wood shop!! #2: Progress!

05-23-2016 03:02 PM by PeterDominic1983 | 0 comments »

So got these fancy new 4’ LED lights to replace the ancient 8’ tube/ballast lights… theyre SUPER bright, so for now theyre upside down! Thinking I might make a plexi diffuser or something in the future… Anyway, starting to get things cleaned up a bit. Throwing away TONS of stuff.. there is really only a few categories of items: keepers (to keep in garage, or some other area of the house), sell/donate (ebay, craigslist, verage, something like that), and trash! A...

Rediscovering Woodworking #3: More Hybrid than Power Journey

05-18-2016 12:13 AM by Tim Royal | 0 comments »

It was suggested in the comments on my first blog 2 years ago that I seek a more hand tool direction because of almost non-existent space to work. I AM a hybrid woodworker and love handtools, but have found that it is actually more and not less expensive to be completely hand tool oriented, primarily because larger projects using rough lumber are so labor and mainly space intensive as to be impractical when you are essentially forced to do most of your work outside in nice weather. What do yo...

Shop Bench

05-09-2016 02:37 AM by WoodywoodpeckerMike | 10 comments »

This is my Garage Shop Bench project that is taking on a life of its own…growing and evolving…. Check out the video n pics… The build went rather smoothly…only hit my hand with the hammer 3 or 4 times…but I got in some left hand hammering so it was pretty good. The bench came out sturdy, level and even with the existing bench it aimed to mimmic. I am having trouble adding a video…will update when synced…

Hermit House Woodworking - Starting from Scratch #11: Some Much Needed Shop Improvements

04-14-2016 08:41 AM by Ted Ewen | 6 comments »

Lights, Power Points and a Dedicated Circuit. One thing about living in Scandinavia: Winter days are short and dark. The previous owners were, apparently, bats because there is very little lighting anywhere in the house. While the new shop space has great windows, they do not do a lot to illuminate the shop if there is no sunlight. Even when there is, it’s not exactly the best lighting for doing detailed work and measurement. I was using a light intended for video recording to h...
