Super Duper Sled #1: The Sketchup Plans

09-04-2010 08:25 AM by AttainableApex | 11 comments »

Well here is my latest sled design. This sled is a combination of many sleds that i have seen in the past. One sled that really influenced it, is the super sled by john nixon at eagle lake woodworking. I like the t track on the sled part (the sheet part) but i am going to use real t track. I also liked the t track on top of the fence, which i incorporated, but it stops there. This sled should be able to do just about everything. You can cut 45’s ( blade tilting at 45 deg ) and every o...

Virtual table #2: Mt. St. Mich Trestle Table

09-24-2007 06:27 AM by scottb | 14 comments »

Not far south of my ancestral homeland (one of them anyhow, as Americans tend to be from lots of places) on the French side of the English Channel – near the Blanchard Straights in fact, you’ll find Mont Saint Michel, a tidal penninsula on the Breton/Norman border. Constructed under, as well as commissioned by ancestors of mine (the Dukes of Normandy – future kings of England – and their forefathers, I feel a connection to the island, turned tidal penninsula, turned...

Going Pro Part 2: Are you a Pioneer? You'll Need that Spirit.

10-05-2007 04:21 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 11 comments »

Going full time at working with your woodworking tools is quite a daunting task. It was, and still is for me. I get quite a few emails, visitors, and phone calls from other folks, so I know it is daunting for everyone that considers it. I try to be honest with them, about the cost and benefits. I have given out some bits and pieces of my “Pioneering Spirit” sermon over the past months to various individuals, but never all in one place before. So, I decided this morning to...

Cleaning a tenon up

01-31-2012 04:51 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 10 comments »

Well after going almost 2 months without doing a video and almost 2 weeks not being in the shop, I figured I would get some work done and while in the process shoot a short video. Well sadly my shop light burnt out and I have no bulbs for it, but I did get the video filmed before the light went out. Enjoy it and as always, all comments (good, bad, or terrible), tips, and tricks are welcome. Thanks!

MDB #3: So many cubes - GULP! ....I mean GLUP..... um - GLUE UP

08-02-2010 06:23 AM by PurpLev | 5 comments »

Disclaimer: This blog follows my Magen David Board that is already finished and posted here This phase of the project took on a different pace. it was all hand tools oriented, and I was able to work on it at nights and at quick sessions as there was little setup involved, and not a whole lot of noise. To start. I took my old drill press table that was just hanging around the shop useless after I upgraded it and screwed a straight piece of cherry left over from my milling process to act ...

Going Pro Part 1: Are you so Impassioned you can't stand it? Did you Consider........

10-05-2007 03:34 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 14 comments »

Over in the Forum, there is a question about Going Pro with woodworking, and what should be considered. The Forum Writer stated to “be honest.” I decided to post my comments there, and then also as a Blog Post. It will be easier for me to find my own comments later, and to document the thoughts as a Blog. Just a few misc., and random thoughts, as I don’t have much time this morning 1) Full time is so different than part-time, or hobby woodworking, that there isn’t any c...

Thorsen Table contest #4: what so many legs you have

04-26-2007 02:47 AM by scottb | 16 comments »

Had a slight mishap today when I went to mill the legs down so they'd be the proper width after applying a "veneer" edge, I accidentally cut all the pieces! I should have left the those at the final width, I got a little carried away. A little creative thinking and milling a few more pieces out of the remaining door stock, and I'll have legs that will ultimately be a mere 3/16ths skinnier, but and I'm able to proceed using only this reclaimed door lumber. I've thought the inspiration ...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #20: Joinery Shortcuts

08-21-2010 04:12 PM by CaptainSkully | 1 comment »

I was able to squeeze another good day in the shop around work. I ran off to buy some more oak, then got home and planed enough of it down to glue up the stretchers/aprons for the table ends. While the laminations were cooking, I decided to give the BeadLock Pro a whirl. Having made integral tenons with chiseled mortises, and loose tenons with the router, I have to say this method is considerably easier and faster. First, I was able to cut off the parts to their finished length, without...

DIY Lathe #2: The better base!

05-24-2008 01:25 PM by Marcel T | 2 comments »

Hey guys! Taking advantage of the long weekend here in Canada, (so this was last weekend) I made a better base for my dremel. I was taking it apart to see why it was squeaking (trapped sawdust) when the idea hit me – drill the existing screw holes all the way through the body, and get a longer screw to hold the dremel together (like the old screws) and hold the dremel to the base. Well, I didn’t have a screw quite that long and thin, but I did have some short screws of the correct diameter. S...
