Joinery #2: Don't get your drawers in a twist

07-21-2010 03:56 AM by Rob Bois | 3 comments »

I have done videos in the past about how I handle hand cut dovetails for drawers, so for this current project I decided it didn’t make much sense to just highlight the same techniques. Instead, I focused on several challenges I faced with this most recent set of drawers, ranging from some tricky grain to sharpening fatigue. This won’t teach you how to build a drawer, but you might find a few tips you can apply in your shop.

Natural Edged Maple Burl Bowl I Saw

07-19-2010 10:47 PM by WoodArtbyJR | 0 comments »

On my way from the ferry to the Sounders game yesterday my wife & I passed a Woodworking Store (in the Pioneer Square area of Seattle on First) that sold handcrafted items. Displayed in the window was a natural edged maple burl bowl probably close to 20” in dia & close to 12” high that was simply GEORGOUS. The chest it was sitting on was beautiful as well. It was in the same shape as my maple bowl I just posted. I told my wife that the cost of the burl alone was severa...

How's that for a deal?

07-17-2010 04:30 PM by ScottMorrison | 5 comments »

Greetings everyone, As some of you may know, my videos/templates are now carried by Woodcraft (woHoo!): What you may NOT know is that they have been significantly discounted from my original prices. So, of course, I lowered the prices on my website as well. Now everyone can save some bux and have a chance to build one of these pieces for themselves. In addition, if you visit the Woodcraft website here, all of the router bits (which are now made by Whiteside) needed for some of the ...

Old Time Photography

07-14-2010 02:29 PM by 559dustdesigns | 23 comments »

While helping my mother research some local history, I ran across this picture that I wanted to share with you all. This logging truck was photographed about 1919 up in the Sierra Mountains. As soon as I saw this picture I had to have a copy of my own. I thought it would be fun to challenge you all to come up with your best caption for this photo. I’d love to see other historical wood related pictures like this. What have you got?

07-08-2010 06:07 PM by Huckleberry | 4 comments »

OK we are out of the clamps with our project and we level the legs. Next we do a little more finish sanding and spray our finish. *Note one thing I forgot on the video I buy adhesive backed felt and put on the bottom of the feet to ad that “Pro” touch to it. Enjoy and if any would not mind doing me favor, how about leaving some reviews on iTunes for me. Thanks In Advance, Huck

New to Wood Carving #1: I have never attempted to do wood carving.

07-02-2010 10:50 PM by sandhill | 5 comments »

I have never attempted to do wood carving other than some chip carving but lately I have been fascinated by some of the work I have seen. I watched a guy in Savannah Georgia doing carving in front of a consignment arts shop and was captivated by his skill. My wife and I are looking for a motor home to travel the US and I was concerned I would not get to do any wood working which made me not want to do any traveling but now I think wood carving would be the ideal thing for me to do while on lo...

Woodworking for a Job ?

06-28-2010 08:52 PM by cdbridge39 | 17 comments »

I have been thinking about going into woodworking full time. I like to work with wood all the time, what does that say about me ? Does anyone do woodworking full time ? I just don’t know what would be a good product to make and sell. Does anyone have any ideas ? Some pointers and tips would be good. I like making lathe stuff but I don’t think there is much money in it. Maybe some furniture or boxes ?

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #25: Rainy Days and Mondays, but I'm Not Down!

06-28-2010 01:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It’s not quite light out yet, but I can already tell it is going to be a dreary day. It’s already raining, but not the kind of violent storms I have been hearing about in the states but rather a soft rain, even and gentle. It seems more like autumn here than summer, as it is again quite cool. But that’s OK, because autumn is my favorite time of the year. With all the rain and flooding we have been hearing about, people around here say its been too dry. My partner told me...
