Nail Gun Cabinet Project #1: Nail Gun Cabinet Build.....Part 1

05-28-2012 08:02 PM by Gshepherd | 2 comments »

Well here we go….. I started making a Nail gun cabinet and this time I decided to take a few more pictures from beginning to end so some may be boring and not needed and some actually may be usefull to someone. This is my first attempt explaining the process I go through and who knows we both may learn something new. I am always open for some advice since I am a self taught woodworker. I am very close to finished project now and did not want to do all of this at one shot so I will...

Sales Catalog Pricing Application or Template

08-18-2013 07:50 PM by N3FSD | 2 comments »

Many of my friends have been asking me for a copy of a “sales catalog” that shows pictures and prices of all the handcrafted pens and products that I have made? I imagine that I could just start cutting and pasting pictures of each of me pens, and then adding materials types and prices, however that seems to be a lot of work and has the potential to become unstructured and non-uniform, i.e. different sized pictures, formatting options, lack of table of contents, titles, etc. ...

How to Cut Rabbets with Hand Tools

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) I’m excited to share a quick video tutorial about how to cut rabbet joints by hand, with a few simple hand tools. This method focuses on cutting rabbets along the grain, which is especially useful for cutting moldings (first step in using hollows & rounds molding planes), picture frames, etc. Go to this original blog entry (here) for some links to the tools that I used in this tutorial (you can use variations):-Marking gauge (I...

Squaring my miter saw

12-11-2011 06:19 AM by thiswoodshop | 2 comments »

I had a Ryobi 14 Amp 10 in. Compound Mitre Saw. It was working fine but could only cut a max of 5 inches wide boards. I was in the market for a new on but all of the sliding miter saw was so costly. I even considered a Harbor Freight one, but even at that it was a $100 and more for one. I decided to check out craigslist.com and found a Kobalt one there for s feel. Well, after I got home I found out why it was so cheap – it was not square. I tried a couple of time to square it up but it...

This Oak Tree has been a part of out family for years. We have numerous pictures and memories of this tree when it was alive. The tree was struck by lightning approx. two years ago.

How much will it cost? and what are the best “cuts to get out of the tree. This tree has been around forever, it deserves to li...

A different kind of challenge

07-27-2008 11:40 PM by Michael Brailsford | 2 comments »

A few years back Fine Woodworking magazine did an article that gave me a new inspiration. That was to utilize space on a piece of furniture that would otherwise be wasted and install a secret compartment. Now I don’t have sensative government documents I am hiding nor do I have priceless pieces of art I am trying to hide nor secret documents that once I give it to the press will make us feel differently about, let’s say, Coca Cola. I just felt inspired to try a new kind of chal...
