My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1507: Spring Triple Scoop Project Completed

02-27-2015 01:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

It is NOT snowing today. The sun is shining and I can actually see hints of blue sky peeking from behind the clouds. (And yes – I am happy about it!) Those of you who read often know that I love winter. I love just about any season that comes to Clare, Nova Scotia. I long ago stopped being crabby about the weather because there is truly nothing that I could do about it. I figure it is a poor use of my time complaining about something that I have so little control over (aside f...

1884 G. Schwecthen Piano - Reclaim Project #1: Destruction

02-27-2015 05:05 AM by Jerome | 4 comments »

My aunt and her family purchased her home back in 1974. The piano came with it. At the time the piano was said to be over 75 years old. I lived there for a while and remembered it being a desk in the basement for over 17 years. I thought the actual tree or trees that were used to make it had to be maybe 30 years old at the time, plus drying time would make the wood age around 1840 or so. She decided it was time to clean out her basement and there sat this piano, or what was a piano! A man...

Table Saw Project #1: Getting Things Together

02-27-2015 04:31 AM by Jerome | 2 comments »

I purchased my first table saw a few years ago and it is still running like a champ. I have since become comfortable using dado sets, and learning how to be safe! I would love to have a nice cabinet saw, but I really do not “need” one at the moment. That being said, I have always disliked my stamped wings on the side of the table saw. For about a year or so I have looked for cast iron wings to replace them. Then I ran into the Bench Dog Pro Max cast iron router table extension. I ...

Tapered tenon cutter & mortise reamer #4: Tapered Reamer - testing and final layout for cutter

02-26-2015 11:21 PM by mafe | 5 comments »

Tapered Reamertesting and final layout for cutter The new reamer need to be tested before I cut into the final cutter.First of all for the angle I have now chosen. So I drill another hole in the test piece. And ‘ream’ it. It goes really easy and the cut is fine.So I am a happy monkey for now. Marking the center. Then 20 degrees up from there. The same on the back. Now you can see how they are offset, due to the tapered hole. So I can connect them wit...

The Saw #2: The Beginning - Legs, Flip, and Fence. plus tips.....

02-26-2015 04:47 PM by MikeChase | 1 comment »

As I wait for a friend to help me flip the table over, I get to the assembly of the legs. Note: If you don’t do a lot of squatting exercises, be prepared, you will be doing 24 reps for all the screws that go into the legs. Here are the legs assembled. All and All the legs go together real well, very little manipulation. Another note: if you want the leg protectors on the bottom of the legs (they are plastic), now is the time to put them on !! I opted not to use them and use rubber s...

From tree to bar! #3: Get cutting

02-26-2015 04:46 PM by JonoMcHugh | 2 comments »

Firstly sorry for the very late update, but between having to travel up and down from South Africa to Botswana and having to rebuild a new lodge amongst elephants (see photo) I haven’t really had much time to even think about this blog. I got back to the farm excited to get going on the project and quickly identified a few trees that had the right size and shape. But being my first serious project and not wanting to cut down a perfectly good tree only ruin it, I went in search of one...

02-26-2015 02:06 PM by handsawgeek | 5 comments »

Ah, the things that one can make with just a length of dowel, a scrap of wood, and some random bits of hardware! Today’s handsawgeek Poor Man’s Tool offering combines just those very materials to fashion an accurate and functional depth gauge for use in bowl, box, and vase turning. Simply put, a length of dowel is sharpened on one end, poked through a hole drilled in a straight piece of scrap wood, and secured at various positions by a set screw held by whatever appropriate hardware...
