My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1366: New Ornaments Completed

5 hours ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I had another busy day yesterday. I had to take my kitty Coco to the vet yesterday to get a little bump on her paw checked out. Fortunately, it turned out to be nothing and she is fine. I was kind of worried that she would have to go through surgery or something like that to get it removed, but the vet said it wasn't a concern.  I am sure Coco was happy as well, but she still wasn't thrilled with the ride to the vet and back (about 45 minutes each way). She was just thrilled to b...

Why buy it when you can make it! #8: First turning project - Cherry Pepper Mill

12 hours ago by paxorion | 0 comments »

A few years ago (before we were married), my wife bought me a monstrously huge pepper mill (I think it was about 3 feet long). It was awesome, except for the fact that it was a pain to use and had formed a fairly substantial crack over the years. Fate would have it that my daughter developed a huge love for dismantling it (apple doesn’t fall far from the tree), and lost several key pieces of the grind mechanism. After a painful hunt, we decided to give up on that mill and consider bu...

A slight variation on Shipwright hinges

13 hours ago by BobAnderton | 3 comments »

Shipwright showed how to make these cool integral wooden hinges for a box in this tutorial. http://lumberjocks.com/shipwright/blog/23989 I liked them a lot but it required planning ahead and cutting the hinge features in the back of the box before assembly. I wanted to be able to assemble a box and cut the lid off with the tablesaw and have the choice of making an integral hinge or using brass hinges later so I developed this slight variation. An example of the finished hinge is this pro...

Tool Tip #11: Liquid Hide Glue expired no good?

15 hours ago by robscastle | 6 comments »

Earlier in 2014 I was working with Liquid hide glue, and had a container on the shelf, upon checking it there was a shelf life expiry date 20/2010 so I went and bought another. I did some tests on both at the time, pre May 2014 and I did not see any discernable differences in the expired glue and the fresh batch I had just bought, so both went on the shelf. There they stayed until today, I was readings Stefangs blog on his home made LHG. He conducted some strength destruction tests o...

Filling the guts of your Dutch tool chest #3: Lid panel saw fixtures

21 hours ago by Brad | 3 comments »

I created two fixtures similar to Christopher Schwarz in order to dock two panel saws (rip and XC) to the inside lid surface. After trial and error, I came up with these fixture dimensions: The rip saw’s handle faces to the left while the XC saw’s handle is located to the right-hand side of the lid. When the lid is open, the teeth face upward. Since each saw is wider toward the handle than the toe, the groove to house this portion of them is longer. I laid the saws one over another and...

Traditional Woodworking Tours #9: Elia Bizzarri's Windsor Chair Workshop Tour

1 day ago by WoodAndShop | 0 comments »

In my above video I share my recent tour of Elia Bizzari’s traditional Windsor chair workshop in Hillsboro, North Carolina. I found Elia to not only be warm & welcoming, but incredibly hilarious. We had some great laughs together in his workshop and will be working on filming a DVD together in the near future. Please contact me if a Windsor chair tutorial DVD interests you. Elia started traditional woodworking as a teenager, and eventually discovered his passion for making trad...

On Transitioning to a Traditional Tool Chest

1 day ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 26 comments »

Not going to pretend any of this is ground-breaking, just jotting a few notes to LJs that others may find interesting or useful as part of their own, unique journey. Building a tool chest is one of a number of ‘trend’ activities that have captured the attention of a significant number of people. Just like building a Roubo, constructing an auto-adjust leg vise and using a portable twin screw vise (or “Moxon”) specifically for joinery or a ‘bench on bench.’ There’s a particular interest in the ...
