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

01-11-2010 05:32 PM 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...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #15: Cutting rings for bases.

01-07-2010 10:48 AM by degoose | 20 comments »

For the last few days at the end of last year ….LOL…I was very busy… I was designing a recessed base for my Lazy Larrys..I have just taken the time to post this….To start I have cut a circle of 5/8” plywood to mount the bearing.. this is roughly 300 mm or 12” in diameter as seen to the left in the first pic.This is accomplished by using the router to drill a hole in the centre.. the same size as the pin in the table. The hole is dropped over the pin and th...

Well here it is, the year 2010 and we are planning our newest projects for the year. I have come out with the idea of we use each others talents to enhance our own products. All of us is better at maybe putting a certain cut, or carving out that likeness of and animal a little bit better, or routering those curves, angles or ends on a piece of wood, What ever we are just a little bit better at maybe we can help each other with that special project. I hope maybe my talent of burning that speci...

Storage for this old house... #1: The design....

01-04-2010 02:35 AM by RichClark | 3 comments »

We have an old house and there is not place to put anything…. Our closets are tiny our rooms are cluttered with chests and junk, the stairways have chests and piled on junk. The reason for this is that A/C or Heat was not invented when the house was constructed. So we pile up towels and sheets and such in several trunks and chests that while they are pretty(I made them) the are unpractical. Thus we start Sandi’s Crhistmass present ! SO. in that light I was tasked to build ...

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a blog post on some tablesaw upgrades. Now it doesnt matter what kind of tablesaw you have. The first thing you want to do is upgrade your fence and miter gauge for the fence you should look at the bisemeyer fences. For the miter gauge look at the incra miter gauges. You dont have to upgrade to the bisemeyer fence or the incra miter gauge but you should definitely upgrade if you dont your just gonna get pissed and end up upgrading later. Now something that...

Dovetail Pen Turning #1: The adventure of dovetail pen turning begins.

12-30-2009 04:11 AM by SNSpencer | 0 comments »

OK, I turned a bunch of slimline pens as gifts for my coworkers. Now I am moving on to something more complicated. I know it’s a bit soon but I love learing new woodworking skills and the challenge of delving into the unkown. I will blog about my adventure of making a “Dovetail” pen here. The first thing that I learned is how to do end on end dovetailing. More complicated than it looks to join two boards, end on end, flat. Not the usual 90 deg angle like in box const...
