Hi Cody I am a tile setter who recently got into woodworking as a hobby over the last year and I’m not in to making anything to big or fancy really just some little projects around the house as well as remodeling my home. I have been having some trouble finding good hard wood and the prices are really high. With the current economy I thought prices would be down a little but I guess not. Well anyways so far I have been getting my wood from the local home depot and ace hardware but I wa...

Mirror, Mirror #1: How do you frame an 8 sided mirror?

05-01-2010 02:37 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

How do you frame an 8 sided mirror? Beats me. This is my solution. The construction is a whole new way of thinking for me. Fingers crossed for success. My sister wanted a framed mirror for her kitchen wall. she had a large free hanging one but it fell and the mirror and frame shattered. Of course I can make one right? Hmm…. She wants it 8 sided. I want to bolt it to the wall, not hang it like a picture. Here’s my solution so far. After she had the mirror cut at the glass com...

Working a Slab by Hand

04-27-2010 05:41 PM by davemoorefurniture | 29 comments »

If you have ever had material that is too large for your machines, fear not. In this video I demonstrate how I use a set of planes to achieve a time honored technique by flattening, thicknessing, and joining a live-edge, cherry table top. I hope you enjoy and please feel free to give me feedback so that I may improve in both my woodworking and video abilities.

Shopsmith Restoration #9: Electrolysis for Rust Removal

04-27-2010 09:33 AM by PG_Zac | 14 comments »

This series has been quiet for a while, as I’ve been buying replacement parts off eBay and dealing with several small(ish) technical issues. The members of the ShopSmith owners’ forum have been extremely helpful. My thanks to the LJ members who pointed me to that forum. Here is my experience with removing rust by Electrolysis and I’m sure that many LJ’s can benefit using this technique for tool restoration. If you have any questions, just ask and I’ll do my...

1972 Craftsman project, Opinions Welcome #9: Success! A functioning Table Saw

04-27-2010 12:32 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Spent a bit of time today doing some tweaking and setting up. I made a new piece to hold the toggle clamp out of 1/2” ply. The thinner material made the stock bolt the perfect length. The new zero clearance insert is in and I put in my trusty 50 tooth Freud thin kerf blade. A couple of hours setting everything up and it works!!! A bit of cleaning and waxing was involved today. I ripped a short section af ash and the cut looks really nice. First project….the cabinet for un...

04-26-2010 05:39 AM by a1Jim | 19 comments »

It’s been some time since Charles Neil invited me to build a lowboy along with him, as he builds his lowboy on his series,” Mastering Woodworking”, and his subscribtion webisode. He not only invited me to build the lowboy, but shipped me all of the wonderful maghogany to build it, along with the patterns. Now that I’m just getting started, I printed the patterns from his website, (even though he sent me a pattern), to start the way you might want to begin th...
