Microcosms, a trip to a smaller world #1: Tiny Home Made Plywood and Banding.

12-03-2010 03:29 AM by shipwright | 11 comments »

I started this as a forum topic http://lumberjocks.com/topics/22441 but the way it’s going, it should have been a blog so I’m changing horses in mid stream. To bring things up to speed, I started out fooling around with the idea of thin plywood because I was bored in the shop waiting for finish coats to dry on my real project. It sort of took on a life of it’s own. Here’s a brief recap: The first two shots are of a 4” x 8” sheet of 1/16” walnut ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #160: Back From the Shop

11-10-2010 01:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday was another day that just seemed to go by too quickly. I was fortunate that the rain seemed to let up for the most part for the day so that driving was not so treacherous. We still needed to be cautious though because many of the roads were flooded. About half a kilometer down our own street (right where the river bends) the river was actually so high that it bled into the street and flowed across it. Fortunately it was only a couple of inches deep, but it was a quick reminder th...

Ali's Workbench w/ Shop Made Wagon Vise #1: 3 1/2" Thick Workbench top w/ Shop Made Wagon Vise - Almost Done!

10-19-2010 05:59 PM by Alihorneff37 | 6 comments »

Here is a better pic of my workbench top and shop made end vise. The legs are almost done. I did some experimentation with a drawbore (name?) tenon that you can see on the back end. The empty space is where the half long tool tray will be. Honestly, I am undecided about the tool tray. Would it even be possible to just fill it in? Suggestions would be great! :) This is my first attempt at dovetails. And they are extremely hard! I am sure you can see the little spaces/discolorations but I r...

Creating Oops! tutorial

10-02-2010 06:33 PM by shipwright | 13 comments »

Oops! began as an idea about outside the box hinges. I’ve always liked the “box on stand” idea but had never tried one so that sort of fell into place and one of the first ideas I had about box decoration was a “spill” pattern. I sketched these on a bit of paper at the kitchen table one day and it was left there. Last December I restored an old ShopSmith 10 ER and had been wanting to see how good a tool it really was and what kind of precision I could achieve...

Fishing Nets Made My Way

09-08-2010 11:47 PM by Greg | 8 comments »

I wanted to share my experiences in making landing nets with you. This is from an article I wrote for the August 2010 edition of On The Fly, the newsletter for the Fly Fishing Club of Orange County. Building the Perfect Landing NetBy Greg Madrigal Like many of you, I started fishing when I was very young, and something about it never let go of me. Growing up with 5 sisters left our family with little to no money most of the time. Work for my father was hard to come by growing u...

Bubinga Trestle Table #1: Massive Board and Table Top

07-22-2010 07:35 PM by DesertWoodGuy | 5 comments »

This trestle table design is in a Modern Art Nouveau style and the table top started with a board that can only be described as MASSIVE. With an average width of 39 inches across and an impressive 15 feet long, the 2” thick board featured two live edges (flitch or boule sawn) and not a single straight grain in the whole big board. I purchased this big board for a little over $1,000 plus another $145 for freight from Gilmer Woods. That might seem a bit much for some, but as this was a we...

07-08-2010 06:07 PM by Huckleberry | 4 comments »

OK we are out of the clamps with our project and we level the legs. Next we do a little more finish sanding and spray our finish. *Note one thing I forgot on the video I buy adhesive backed felt and put on the bottom of the feet to ad that “Pro” touch to it. Enjoy and if any would not mind doing me favor, how about leaving some reviews on iTunes for me. Thanks In Advance, Huck

Wood Splurge! #1: The Ensplurgening

06-28-2010 04:03 AM by Wiley | 7 comments »

So, I recently won a car in a sweepstakes. I don’t drive, so at first I had a bit of trouble getting excited about the win. But then I realized: I hadn’t so much won a car as won a new computer, a bandsaw, a thickness sander, and a bunch of wood, plus a dramatic increase in my savings account. Well, last Friday the final paperwork on selling the car went through, and Saturday morning the splurge began. First stop was Woodcraft. I’d had my eye on the Rikon 14” Deluxe...
