Ultimate CAD/CAM for DIY/Hobby/Professional and a GREAT Deal

10-30-2014 02:40 AM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 0 comments »

I’ve been searching for powerful CAD/CAM software that is affordable/free. I finally found it in Fusion 360 from Autodesk. They offer a full featured parametric 3D modeling software with integrated CAM. The integrated CAM makes the CAM parametric to the geometry as well. Currently, there is only a single product in the family which is free for personal/hobby use (yes legally). The full featured version is $300/year now. Come November 8, 2014, they will be offering a standard version ...

Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #14: Cutting bone

10-23-2014 01:52 AM by Patricelejeune | 9 comments »

For those who follow this thread, you know we have been struggling on dying bone. We may have found the solution, at least one of them. Here is a test piece that seems to be dyed all the way through To help the dye to penetrate all the way through the bone I decided to dye the pieces already cut. I had my papers already prepared from the start waiting for the solution The intended green bone pieces were highlighted in green (of course) on the drawing. I cut ...

Shop Storage

10-22-2014 01:21 AM by Todd Swartwood | 5 comments »

I have been in my new shop a little over a year now, but it seems to have a mind of its own.I have been rearranging equipment and adding new storage. Most all of the Items are close to finished, Most of the shop cabinets still need drawer faces. I am quite happy with the way they are working out. My main bench has a 5” thick maple top, with a Chestnut base cabinet. Also directly behind my main work area are my Tool Chest, and my Cutter storage/hardware storage Chest. As well as st...

starting my new passion #1: New to woodworking, looking for advise

10-21-2014 03:41 AM by Gwjames | 3 comments »

Ok, so I am new to wood working, I did a couple very simple projects such as a farm house style table and after built a matching bench for one side, I am a grown man and refuse to sit on a bench so I decided that eventually I would design and build some farmhouse chairs, I didn’t think I was quite ready yet so I built (I am still finishing it) a farmhouse bed. Any body noticing a trend yet? I really like the farmhouse style furniture. Well when I first started I was just u...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #29: Tip of the Day!!!

10-20-2014 05:41 PM by PhilBello | 2 comments »

The weather seems to have gone from bad to worse, at least the cars have stayed dry! So the only work I have been doing is reclaiming some mahogany timbers that were left in the garden by the previous owner, to rot, and after cleaning them up, they turned out to be well seasoned usable timber, which only needed a few nail holes filling, after which I have used them both for making window sills and shelving. All of which I have left natural, and used my home made beeswax polish to bring out bo...

Finding Wood

10-18-2014 01:49 AM by Dave Rutan | 9 comments »

[Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto]Where do you find wood that isn’t plain pine boards and studs from the local lumberyard? If you don’t live near a furniture supply house or don’t want to pay for wood for small projects, do like I do. I live in a mid-sized town in the rural corner of New Jersey. When I’m out driving here and there I keep an eye out along the streets, mainly in my own town, for broken furniture. A lot of folks throw out broken chairs, but I don’t ha...
