Contemplating doing some local shows, or maybe e-bay...

06-20-2010 07:19 PM by sandt38 | 5 comments »

Last year (July 2009) I was diagnosed with stage 4 (terminal) colon cancer. I had metastasis to my liver and lymph nodes. The doctors told me to get my final affairs in order, and that I might not live through the end of the year. Well, clearly I have managed to stay here a bit longer then expected. Thanks to the good Lord for providing me with the people I needed to beat the cancer back, and the attitude that was required to help it all come together. I was told by my oncologist that there w...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #223: Presentation Makes a Difference

01-12-2011 02:50 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Among the many hats I need to wear in running this business, photography is one of the most important and also one of the most intriguing. Although I realize that I will never reach the level of a professional photographer, I have seen a great deal of improvement in my photographs over the years and I am still learning to make my photographs better. This in itself can be a career, as many of you know. I look at the beautiful photography our own LJ member, tyskkvinna (Lis) does and her inte...

Small Secretary With Tambour Door #8: Base Internals and Assembly

02-15-2015 05:02 AM by Guy Dunlap | 4 comments »

In this video, I make the center divider for the drawers in the base. I also add some kickers for the drawers. After sanding, I glue it up taking special care to line up the inlay on the rails with the legs. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! http://youtu.be/PFsOgxD2R2w

Old School Mortised in Butt Hinge #1: The Start; layout

02-19-2010 10:45 AM by Waldschrat | 4 comments »

So here is my second blog series, for lacking of a better term, the “old school butt hinge.” It does not have to be old school, but it is. Why? It takes time, practice, skill, and work to make this almost lost style of hinge work. Thats why we are here, to learn wood working, practice makes perfect, and I will now introduce the hinge: Of course there are left and right hinges… so pay attention. This is the typical straight leaved hinge. You notice the holes,...

Drill Press Wood Turning

09-11-2012 01:37 AM by TheBoxStoreCraftsman | 4 comments »

Adding a lathe to the arsenal of tools in your shop is usually a milestone for most weekend wood workers as other tools, needs and money tend to push that addition down the list for most of us. So what do you do if you don’t have a lathe but you have the need for some small turnings to help finish off that special heirloom jig you’ve been working on or that special gift for your wife? You could buy them, get a friend to make them or if you have a drill press, you can make them you...

Performax 16/32 Drum Sander #2

10-05-2010 03:52 PM by WoodArtbyJR | 4 comments »

Well, I’ve had some time to use my new tool acquisition and have discovered a few things (I’m sometimes a SLOW learner). My performax is of the older vintage and has a 2.5” exhaust port with a 4” adapter so I connected it to my Oneida cyclone system and went to work. BAD IDEA….....The Oneida system is a GREAT system but, cleaning the internal filter is not the easiest thing to do. SO, after using the sander for a relative short period I noticed that the suctio...

Splinters of thought #3: Mass Produce Your Wedges.

10-20-2015 09:52 PM by bearkatwood | 4 comments »

Wedges are very useful to have around. If you are using wedged tenon joinery they are a must. You can use them to fill a bad dovetail joint, hold an un-level chair from rocking while you mark out the leg to be cut, repair a bad tenon etc. When I make my wedges I try to make them is a mass scale so I don’t have to worry about running out in the middle of a glue up. I have had that happen, where I had to stop in the middle of a glue up and make a wedge, very annoying. So here are some pic...
