186 days ago by Douglas | 3 comments »

I fancied up my guitar amp head recently. And actually made something out of a wood that isn’t quarter sawn white oak. I went exotic… walnut. The full blog post and loads of build pics are here… Thanks

The Chicken Coop

188 days ago by mervillehomesteader | 11 comments »

About a year ago I moved onto 5 acres full of nice size fir and cedar trees a lot of trees. We cut down about a half acre for garden and chicken space. From the trees we cut down we got 5000 board feet of one inch and two inch fir timbers (mostly 10inch wide by 10 to 20ft long) and a tonne of one inch cedar planking (averaging about 14inches wide). That’s a lot of wood for one lowly carpenter but I think I will manage. Well first things first. Dig a garden and get the chickens out of...

Education and torment #2: Red Oak Sandpaper Storage cabinet

190 days ago by GeneR | 3 comments »

This cabinet is made from leftover red oak, Luan, birch plywood and plexiglass that I had in my shop. It is approximately 17”T x 7 1/2”W x 6” deep. I would have liked to make it a little taller to handle a couple more shelves and slightly deeper to have been able to recess the back panel. The Box I first sent the oak through the joiner to ensure I had 1 flat square edge. I then cut the board to the proper widths on my table saw then to final lengths on the Miter...

Oak Memory Box For Harpster #1: Casework

196 days ago by S4SWWS | 1 comment »

For the casework I am using red oak, milled to 1×6. I mitered the corners and let it stand on end overnight before final milling. I have tapped it together to determine the top panel size. I am currently waiting for inspiration for the top panel which will be inset. I will be going to Bylers Kiln sometime this week to look through their figured woods to find a suitable panel.

Hand Tool Ramblings #3: The Anarchists Bug Out Box

210 days ago by rustythebailiff | 4 comments »

Living here in sunny FLA, we don’t have to worry about ice and snow. But, we do get the occasional tornado. And hurricanes are not unheard of. So, as my hand tool collection has grown over the years, it suddenly occurred to me that if I had to flee from impending natural disaster, it would take me a good hour to gather up my precious hand tools. Now, not to downplay the importance of my power tools, but they are easier to replace than some of my vintage hand tools. So, after watc...

Hand Tool Ramblings #2: Getting Moxon-ated

210 days ago by rustythebailiff | 0 comments »

After seeing numerous posts, and watching it in action on The Woodwright’s Shop, I decided that the double screw bench vise just might come in handy. I sure could’ve used it when I was sawing the 40 sets of dovetails for my tool chest! Here in sunny FLA (no joke, it’s December 23rd and it’s 80 degrees plus with high humidity. Yuck) we don’t have the benefit of the fantastic lumber yards of our northern cousins. I often peruse with envy the web pages of Goose Bay Sawmill in New Hamps...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1174: More New Projects for our Site Update

239 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I am just going to post a quick update today, as I still have quite a bit that I want to accomplish. I am working on writing the pattern packets for the new projects that we are in the process of adding to our site. I finished two of the three packets yesterday and I want to have the third one posted by the end of the day. Keith has also been working on some new projects that will be included in the update. Below is a picture of an ornament from his new set that he designed. He calls t...

Shoe Shine Box #3: A Few Additions

240 days ago by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 1 comment »

Slow progress today. I had to do emergency surgery on the Shopsmith Mark V – the lower gear ratio mechanism decided to start grinding on the motor. So I was only able to finish cutting the dovetails on the side panels and the rabbets for the top and bottom. The stopped dados will have to wait until later. Oh … and I finished the removable shelf.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1170: Finished Ornament Pictures! :)

243 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

As I am writing this morning, the sky is a very light blue and it is filled with puffy clouds. The bottoms of the clouds are an incredible peachy/orange hue that blends into the peachy/grey tops. If I painted a picture like this, some would think it looked ‘fake’, as the colors are so unusual. But it is there and it is a beautiful sight to wake up to. I can feel already that it will be a good day. I made pretty good progress yesterday on my project. The second version of th...
