"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...

Extremely Average #9: My First Project

01-11-2010 04:56 AM by Ecocandle | 7 comments »

“When you have completed 95% of your journey, you are only halfway there.” -Japanese Proverb I need to remember this proverb whenever I approach the end of a project. I find that there are two finish lines when it comes to my tasks. The first finish line is where I start to feel good about what I have accomplished and the second one is where the project is actually completed. This is certainly the case for my workbench. It was, actually still is, my first project. The day tha...

Some New Tools

08-26-2010 07:18 PM by Michael J. Moore | 5 comments »

I picked up an AKEDA DC 16 Dovetail Jig on eBay about a week ago and it got here this last Tuesday. It’s in great shape. Most of the bits still have the coating on them and most of the parts were not opened. Now I do wish it was the BC 24 but those are on Backorder until who knows when so I had to go with what I could get. I decided to go with the Akeda after speaking with Kevan, the designer, about what I would be using it for. He offered some great insight and I am confident that I ma...

About Me--alanealane

11-02-2007 08:05 PM by alanealane | 11 comments »

I just edited my profile and added the following description of myself…as if anyone cares who I am anyway…sob sob. LOL I’m Alex, a 23 year old woodworking fanatic who’s affectionately called by my family the ‘Termite.’ I work at a private liberal-arts institution in my hometown as an Architectural Drafter/Designer. Another fanaticism I hold dear is that of Jazz Music. I was raised listening to the likes of David Sanborn, Tony Bennett, Stevie Wonder, Al J...

Extremely Average #15: I have just two questions

01-17-2010 12:57 AM by Ecocandle | 11 comments »

“We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment” -Jim Rohn I thought I would spend the day continuing to work on my Krenov saw horses, since I didn’t have any new DVDs or books on woodworking. For those that stopped by hoping to see a rant about John Lively’s company The Taunton Press, you will be disappointed to know that I am too happy today to gripe about their inefficiency. Because Monday is a holiday, I won’t get them be...

Shark Pole

03-05-2009 08:47 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 3 comments »

This past Christmas, Santa brought me a Shark Guard. I used it to complete Nathan's crib, but knew I’d need to get it properly mounted before the next project. So I bought a 6’ length of 1” square tube steel, a metal cutting blade for the jigsaw, and a bag ‘o 5/16 nuts, washers and bolts. I would have much preferred to weld it together, but since I don’t own the equipment or know anyone who does, that just wasn’t going to happen. The overarm design is a...

goodbye to an old freind

12-03-2012 02:25 PM by randyb | 3 comments »

Last month I had to say goodbye to my restored 1960’s Powermatic model 66 table saw. It was my dream saw with a Excalibur sliding table, as the old Rush song said from a better thanish time. I spent a lot of time on putting this old saw back to work. I bolted it to the floor, and tried to “dust proof” it. As I was sitting in my shop looking at all of the things I planned on selling to clear out my shelves and make some room. The Excalibur sliding table was huge!!! and took a...
