"Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner"; a Scrimshaw Art Demonstration at the Senior Center

09-26-2007 01:28 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 14 comments »

About a month ago I received a phone call asking if I would demonstrate the Art of Scrimshaw at the Senior Center in Marion, KS. The lady that called said that she has held onto a brochure of mine since 2003 that someone had given her then, and so she decided to see if I would come and talk to the group. I asked a bunch of questions, and for some reason had it sunk in my mind that we were talking about the nursing home crowd for the demonstration. I haven’t been to a nursing home much si...

Custom Dishwasher Panel Progress #4: V's and Splines and a little advice needed

09-22-2007 03:14 AM by gizmodyne | 7 comments »

V-grooveI had a break from work yesterday before Back to School Night so I headed out again to finish the beadboard field. Setting the v-bit I used a set-up block saved from a prior project to get the v-bit set. The edge groove is simple enough. Just set the bit height to 1/8 and then bury it halfway behind the fence. I climb cut first to get a smooth cut on the fir. The bit is barely exposed so it is a pretty safe operation though I use paddles too. Beadboard detail Running the c...

MsDebbieP's Company Tours #10: Wood Shows

09-21-2007 03:21 PM by MsDebbieP | 9 comments »

Next weekend (Sept. 29th) Rick and I are headed to the Woodstock Wood Show. This wood show is supposedly the largest one held in Canada. And that’s pretty cool, since it is local! I will be talking with some of the company representatives as well as drooling over some of the tools and watching some demonstrations. Are any of my fellow Ontarians going to attend? I think the plan is to go in the afternoon, since I’ve heard that the crowds are smaller then. Also, I’d lik...

Custom Dishwasher Panel Progress #3: New Beadboard Style

09-19-2007 05:31 AM by gizmodyne | 5 comments »

New Joinery Option In my cabinet project I milled up stacks of tongue and groove beadboard. I never even thought about making it with grooves on both sides and milling splines until I read an article on Finehomebuilding.com (which I highly recommend; get a subscription to their online content). Cutting only grooves simplifies the joinery and set-up time by a huge amount. Beadboard calls for just 2 bits, though you could run the grooves on the tablesaw and dispense with the slot cutte...

Boy Scout Woodworking Merit Badge #4: Last Episode - Rockler Store Visit

09-17-2007 09:23 PM by David | 13 comments »

I just posted this on my experimantal podcast and thought it would be a great way to complete my Boy Scout Woodworking Merit Badge series. How cool is this? As the counselor for the woodworking merit badge, I got to accompany our boys on their visit to the local Rockler Store – a woodworker’s dream come true! I did capture a short video clip – sorry it isn’t longer – I was distracted by all the tools! The Troop 728 Woodworking Merit Badge culminated with a vi...

Tools to dream about #1: CNC Router for the shop

09-12-2007 06:51 PM by Bill | 20 comments »

Well, we all have big dreams on what tools we would like to have in our shops. This is one I would like to get – CNC Router by Shopbot. Imagine being able to cut your project by simply laying the wood on the table, turning on the machine, and go get a cup of coffee or a soda while the machine does the work. When you return, the pieces are cut out, ready to sand and assemble. If done right, the accuracy should be better than you can get by hand. Ok, so part of me loves that idea. ...
