The Rebuild #1: Out with the burned, in with the blue

01-30-2014 12:20 AM by Monte Pittman | 30 comments »

First and foremost, as most of you would do, get back to work. The Sawmill survived the fire and I still have a few logs to saw. Luckily my entire stock of dry wood did not burn. I did lose about 75% however. So I have to get more cut and drying. In the couple days before the fire I had cut and stacked about 1500 board feet of wood. Those stacks were the first to burn. So this afternoon I got some cut and will stack in the attached garage. Right now I am just sawing beetle kill...

The Latest Update From The American Craftsman Workshop

07-12-2010 07:19 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 29 comments »

Finally! Well guys, I am finally getting my schedule and projects under control. But I am still busy working 7 days a week to catch up. For the last couple of weeks I have been knocking off work between 10 and 10:30pm. Working from 7am to 10pm sounds like a long day but it is short compared to the previous 3 months that I was working 7am until 1 or 1:30am. There were two instances where I worked from 7am one morning until 11:30 the next night with only about a 1hour nap. I find that ...

Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #7: Cutting Inside Corners and Angles

08-20-2011 08:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 29 comments »

So far we have looked at how to prepare our wood, choose a blade, cast on and off a piece and cut outside curves and corners. Now it is time we do some inside cutting. Most people associate scroll sawing with cutting fretwork. At first many people don’t understand that in order to cut fretwork pieces, you need to drill entry holes in the ‘waste area’ (or the part of the pattern that drops away when you finish your cut) and thread the blade through that drilled hole ...

Don't lose your shirt on Ebay!

12-11-2010 05:14 PM by StumpyNubs | 28 comments »

I built a beautiful Bombay desk from rich mahogany and rosewood. I spent months hunched over it with my carving chisels creating perfectly crisp details. When I was done I knew it was the most beautiful thin I’d ever make. I put it on ebay, sold it for twenty five bucks to a guy who complained it was going to cost so much to crate and ship across the country, and when it arrived it was dented and splintered, so I had to give a full refund, pay the return shipping and burn it in the shop stove...

The mitre saw is setup, The table saw is assembled and ready to fire The dust collector is prepared for action Although the Dewalt mitre saw is 120 volt, the table saw and dust collector are 220. I have all the wiring run with the exception of making the final connection to the breakers. Primarily because I can’t find the right screwdriver at home and chose not to make a special trip into town for the screwdriver. Most of those tools were in the shop. I did manage ...
