Lighting Puzzle Solved (Blink Blink)

08-03-2010 04:54 AM by wichle | 1 comment »

When i spent time with my dad in his woodshop I often heard him complain that he “couldn’t see” what he was working on. I still have the floor lamp he put together from this and that to light his work area. As he got older, the bulb got stronger. Following in his foot steps, mt shop in Milwaukee and once moved here in Michigan are well lighted. There are seventeen flourescent fixtures overhead in the work area. Some are single tube, some are 2 tube squeezed between th...

Let's Build a Drill Press Table

08-01-2010 07:29 PM by Bob Simmons | 14 comments »

The drill press is a terrific tool in the woodworking shop especially when it has a drill press table that conveniently clamps the work, provides a fence for repeatable and accurate cuts, and also offers a safer working environment. The drill press was originally set up for metal working and most tables that come with the drill press are small metal tables. As a result, the metal tables can be rather awkward for use in the woodworking shop. A better solution for the woodworker is to buy...

a1Jim didn't get a shirt, what a shame

07-30-2010 11:08 PM by Built2Last | 13 comments »

First let me say that I think it is awful nice of Martin to give away the shirts he’s handing out.I am one of those who never win’s anything but, in this case, if I happen to win one and a1Jim doesn’t then I want mine to go to him. I really thought he would get one in the first ten that went out for the 100 most active LumberJocks.( before you say it, I know, it is a random drawing and I don’t mean to sound like I don’t appreciate what Martin is doing, because I ...

Marquetry is one of these woodworking crafts that requires just basic woodworking tools and is well with the reach for all of us. The primary shop tools used for this wood project are the scroll saw, table saw, and the band saw. The hardwoods selected for this project came from a number of wood species that were in the scrap bin. Selected woods for this woodworking project include hickory, maple,...

The Difinative Crown Molding Primer #1: Coping with Crown Molding

07-26-2010 03:45 AM by dryhter | 19 comments »

Coping with Crown I was killing some time watching some videos at YouTube the other day and came across a bunch of videos about “How to install Crown Molding”, I felt many missed the mark. Crown molding has gotten a reputation of being difficult to install and I admit I have seen plenty of poorly installed crown, but with just a little bit of understanding and guidance almost anyone can do an admirable job. Part of the problem is just figuring out how to cut the molding. That topic will be ...

How to make Bandings for Wood Inlay #2: .

07-20-2010 11:03 PM by Bob Simmons | 6 comments »

Once the banding segments are organized we can now focus on creating the interior design. We’ll need a few outer rippings that will sandwich the segments together and keep them in alignment. You’ll notice in the picture that the outer hardwoods are walnut and maple glued together. In this case the walnut will be on the inside with the maple on the outside. The reason for this is to create contrasting colors within the banding and also with the mahogany picture frames that will...
