Work flow and adopting tools

04-18-2010 04:50 AM by sawblade1 | 2 comments »

Hi there fellow lumber jocks This week has been an interesting one for me I spent all week moving my shop around to accommodate two new tools a 1960’s craftsman radial arm saw and a 1977 Delta/Rockwell jointer:) All I can say is well thought out tool placement will keep you safe from falling into the same trap I did after a well thought out plan or so I thought, after doing two Adirondack chairs and a footrest I found out my plan wasn’t going to work to well :( My advice to ...

Hey everyone…Just wanted to post a picture of the Hardwood flooring I installed in my Games Room above my garage/woodworking shop area…The flooring is Scandinavian Maple 3/4” real hardwood flooring and took me about 8 hours to do the entire installation… Overall I am very pleased with the turnout and the look of the wood, the grain is what pulled me into buying this flooring… Open for comments as usual…

Headed to Class #2: Cutting dovetails

04-06-2010 06:06 PM by MickeyD | 4 comments »

I have been busy practicing dovetails. If there is a way to do it wrong I have done it, but last night I was able to make several “right”. I have developed “tennis elbow” with all the hammering with the mallet. It will be a good story to tell the doctor when I get home. We just bought a lathe and Kindlingmaker is having fun making lots of shavings, but I won’t touch it until I get back from class. The poplar practice table is put together and looks very presentab...

So, as a part of Marc S’ “Woodworkers fighting Cancer” guild build of the shaker table, I decided to treat the project as a skills builder regardless of how the end product turns out. If it gets trashed, then I’ll start again! The drawer called for a half blind dovetail, but we were by no means bound to follow that suggestion. So, here’s my first attempt at half blind dovetails! Not great, but despite the gaps, it was still a tight fit on the first try! I d...
