Boxes from Red Cedar #4: From scraps to a tray

12-23-2020 03:38 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

As I guess the sides of this tray make it a box…sort of? Sorted through the leftovers….managed to find three decent looking ones….none were bowed…just the T&G edges were not the best looking..or ..locking. Tablesaw to rip those off. Was trying for a 9” x 12” panel… This was so much fun to do…..first blue clamp wanted to pop the 3 slats up into a curvy thingy….started to add the cauls, to keep things close to flat….....

Boxes from Red Cedar #2: Box #2, Dovetail version

12-18-2020 04:24 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Got out the Usual Suspects… There is something about that circled tool? The pointy end, actually? Seems that angled cut matches what angle I use for dovetails….makes layouts a lot easier. However, this is an older model…...

Cambodia Work - An Update

08-29-2020 10:02 PM by Tim Scoville | 5 comments »

I’ve not posted anything recently about our Cambodian work teaching and encouraging woodworking skills in support of an overall Christian mission, called Jumpah. When we first began our nearly annual trips in 2006, we were limited to about two weeks at a time while I was gainfully employed at Boeing. Since retirement in 2108, our last trip was a full month since we were no longer limited by time. The shop they are currently in is now the fourth generation shop and very large. When we...

Workshop operational tips. #18: Scrollsaw Ease for Arthritic Knuckles...

02-15-2020 10:31 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 6 comments »

Boys and Girls, Another plagiarised idea expanded, though I cannot find the offering, I believe Steve Good had a hand in it somewhere. I was sick and tired of having arthur gnaw at my knuckles every time I tried to swing my Excalibur (scroll saw) in a deftly duel with a lance (piece of wood). I initially purchased a set of these round knobs for my Excalibur scroll saw, to facilitate my grip, only to find them not that much better than the original ones for the final tightening of ...

05-24-2019 12:43 AM by CaptainKlutz | 2 comments »

There are hundreds of threads with folks asking about used tool pricing. Getting tired of posting same information over and over in threads, so decided to list all here:What is Great price on used tool?What is Good price on used tool?What is Fair price on a used tool?
