First Shop #9: Router table thoughts and the future

01-15-2008 01:09 AM by YooperCasey | 7 comments »

So I have spent my free time lately just cutting dovetails, rabbets, and grooves with my router table. So far I like it alot, but I’m going to get that formica on quick. The coating on it definitely wears quickly. I’ve been playing with my dovetail bit today, I love sliding dovetail joints, and man, now I can do it! The fine adjustment of the fence has been getting me lately. So now I am looking at the Incra Jig Ultra Lite Router System. See if I can Incra-ize it for some addition...

Hi guys! yesterday arrived 6 boxes 4 from rockler and 2 from incra. we organized a comunity buy between 7 woodworkers, some profesionals, some hobbist, we took advantage of 15% rockler discount and buying al together was a save of USD140 aprox in shipping and handling charges, compared to buying each of us separated. There was a lot of things… they arrived to my office (we are an internet software developing company) so people looked at me with strange faces :D. luckily I had a small...

A Strategy for Woodworking #22: Curiosity

08-29-2014 02:39 AM by Gary Rogowski | 1 comment »

What causes us to look round the next bend? What makes people want to fly or cross the ocean or play with fire? Why do you do something and then do it again just to see if the results will be the same? Why ask why? All these questions are asked because of a simple if not altogether human trait. This urge pushes us to try things to see what will happen. Like a dog putting his head down between the rocks to sniff out a scent. What is there? What was there? What might be there? Is it that ...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #24: All Good Wood Projects Need....

08-18-2008 04:03 AM by frank | 3 comments »

All Good Wood Projects Need…. ....a StoryLine! Yes that’s right, and with the story line one can start with an image in their head, which when transferred to wood, shows a start. Now this project began before….where we are jumping into at this stage….but the before only included some wood, jointing of the edges, planning the two faces, then the process of glue ups, cutting the inside out with a jigsaw and the original orbital pre-sanding with #60, #80 and #100 gr...

Making the garage a shop #7: Weather is nice, I'm slowing down.

03-21-2011 03:52 AM by Shawn K. | 3 comments »

The weather has been nice lately. Nice enough to work in the garage without a jacket. You’d think I’d be stepping up the conversion of my garage, but instead I’ve been letting myself get distracted, wanting to actually build things. So last weekend I made a crosscut sled, and tried my hand at a box joint jig. The crosscut sled was a success, the shop made runners seem to be working, and the accuracy is impressive, with less than half a millimeter off square over 36R...

New to the hobby, a look inside the beginners mind. #1: the first few tools in the shop

01-05-2008 11:58 PM by Jason Wheeler | 6 comments »

I have to say setting up a wood shop is just as much work and cash, if not more, then setting up a steel shop. Luckily a few of the steel tools are useful and will come in handy to the wood shop. I have also a few tools from a set of cedar drafting drawers I built oh, 5 years back. It was a one time thing and at the time living in an apartment, dust was every where. All I really had was a Dewalt biscuit joiner and a random orbital sander, that was it. A pic of the cedar drawers, mmmm they ...

a day at the woodworking auction

04-22-2007 04:04 AM by dennis mitchell | 10 comments »

About 10 or 11, I got my first “real” job. My grandfather had an auction house. All types of strange and wonderful objects passed through there. Lots of strange and wonderful people found their way their too. I was always on the end of a sofa or moving a box. I did a mans work…well kinda. I have pretty much stayed away from auctions most my life simply because I don’t need more junk. Today I made an exception. A local cabinet maker was “downsizing”. I was h...
