Simple Cherry Picture Frame (Half Lap Joinery)

01-24-2018 03:01 AM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

Here is a video of another easy project for when I only have a couple hours to spend in the shop. I made this frame to fit an eight by ten photo but you could easily scale it up or down to fit your needs.

Using a Router and Hand Tools to Shape a Seat.

01-10-2018 04:51 PM by davemoorefurniture | 3 comments »

I’ve used routers many times to do the bulk removal of wood when shaping a solid seat. But, I’ve never done it totally freehand like I do in this video. In the past I’ve made large patterns that a router-on-sled would follow with a collar. Each subsequent pattern requires a different depth of cut and what you end up with is something that reminds me of the tiers of a quarry that undulate along the natural path of the topography, concentrically. It really makes you fe...

Online Training

01-09-2018 07:23 PM by Scheol | 1 comment »

Good day fellow woodworkers! I have been pondering on the idea of joining an online woodworking teaching platform. I am mostly a evening/night woodworker so despite owning a lot of power tools I tend to favour the hand tool approach (dust and noise are the deal breakers for my family). Also, I would like a paid platform that offers step-by-step instruction for a given project. My four go-to woodworkers online each have a paid subscription to their blogs and all seems to charge roughly the ...

Homemade Hot Hide Glue Brush

01-06-2018 05:49 AM by Rich | 3 comments »

I’ve become something of a hide glue junky. It started with liquid hide glue. I was intrigued with the chemistry of adding urea to hide glue and water, following the cooking method and emerging with a glue that’s strong, liquid at room temperature, and probably the easiest to work with that I know of. Liquid hide glue has some great characteristics, but lately I ventured into hot hide glue. I’ll leave the nuances of liquid versus hot to the experts like shipwright, but...

Router table upgrade

01-03-2018 01:35 AM by Al Breit | 2 comments »

I just took my Kreg router table enclosed the router motor for better dust collection and added drawers for storage of router bits. I bent up an aluminum box to enclose the router with a 4” dust port. Added some extra holes for locking the spindle and a brass bar for locking the spindle height after adjustments. For the brass bar I cut a slot just big enough to allow the bar to fit through and a simple heavy duty rubber band to keep the lock leave upright. My Tryton router had it builti...

Ridgid Oscillating Sander (Motor hard starting problem)

12-31-2017 03:02 PM by woodshaver Tony C | 10 comments »

Our daughter-in-law gave our son a Christmas gift (2017) of a Ridgid Oscillating Sander from Home Depot. Motor won’t start every time and if it does start it’s slow starting and strains a bit before starting. Same problem with the motor/solenoid that I had after buying 3 and returning them a few years ago. I found the reason why the motor would sometimes not start and then end up smoking if you didn’t turn it off immediately. Watch this youtube video that I foundR...

Creating a Mixed Nut Dish from a log I found

12-29-2017 05:41 PM by beahan | 3 comments »

I wanted to make a nut dish like one that my grandparents used to have. Recently I found a log that was thick enough to make one. I know this project is rather simple to do, but I think the nut dish looks way better than a plastic bowl of nuts on the counter. I have embedded the video, enjoy! Chris View on YouTube
