Blogging instead of Woodworking #22: Favorite Plastic Shop Gadgets

06-28-2016 04:15 PM by Douglas | 0 comments »

I did a little review of a few plastic gadgets I have and use in my shop. I cover the GluBot, the Preppin’ Weapon, and the Grr-ripper. These all fall under the category of “should have turned out to be junky plastic crap, but weren’t”. Let me know what you think…

Toy costruction #69: Hummer Worked on the inside

06-28-2016 03:29 PM by htl | 8 comments »

Figured I better get the insides done before I get the wild hair and close this thing up.I’m finding that I have a bad habit of thinking about something that needs done then the next day going and forgetting about it and doing something that make it hard or near impossible to do it after the fact.So get the inside done then on we go.

A journey into the workshop. #106: Interesting past couple of days...

06-28-2016 02:52 PM by dbhost | 2 comments »

It would appear that I have been putting off finishing the A/C repairs on the Saturn off just a wee bit too long…. We don’t drive that car much because, well we have the Malibu that is a much nicer car, especially with my back issues, I don’t have to contort my back to get in and out of it like I do the Saturn. Well Sunday night my wife and I were driving out somewhere, don’t recall off hand, about 9 P.M. ish when we heard a horrid noise and the car heated up in ...

Saw Making #4: Gents Saw Conversion Part 3

06-28-2016 11:03 AM by AgentTwitch | 2 comments »

As we move onto Part 3 of The Gents saw conversion tutorial, we focus on cutting the saw plate and drilling the holes for the split nuts. To help us with this endeavor, we will use Dykem Steel Blue, which is used to help make for easy and accurate layout. While the saw plate is away from the saw back, put some layout fluid on top of the plate where you plan to make cuts and drill holes. Make sure you have the teeth facing the correct direction, or you may end up with a Western s...

Dining Chair Build

06-28-2016 09:49 AM by PPK | 4 comments »

Here’s what I decided to make, more or less. I drew up some plans. I followed them pretty closely, but did change a few thicknesses of some of the stretchers. I red-lined them and will save them fro later. Plan of the chair back.Plan of the chair seat/legs, from the top.I glued up some blanks for the chair seats. Some people don’t like the “mismatch” of hickory, but I absolutely love it. The more contrast, the better, I think.I cut out two templates (the second o...

Big Changes to the YouTube Channel!

06-28-2016 08:56 AM by Woodworker_Collins | 0 comments » So in the last month I realised that I needed to get my YouTube act together. I want to strive towards and to do this I realised I need to become more consistent and put my effort into social media! I want to aim towards at least a video every 2 weeks if not weekly while also putting more effort into the editing of the videos themselves. But I need your help, your sharing, commenting, rating and most importantly subscribing helps grow my...

Building a Cherry Queen Bed #3: The Headboard

06-28-2016 06:19 AM by jonah | 4 comments »

I started on the headboard, naturally, with milling (and milling, and milling) the various parts down to just larger than their final size. I neglected to take a picture of my wood pile before I started, so you’ll have to use your imagination and picture this pile about eight boards high by two across. This picture is after I got done with the headboard pieces: I had to get parts for the two posts, a bottom rail, and an upper and lower rail for the panels at the top of the headbo...

New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #2: Restore & Install biesemeyer fence on the BandSaw

06-27-2016 11:48 PM by MikesProjects | 1 comment »

Be sure to check out the first part of this series where I get the saw & refurbish it… The old biesemeyer fence I am using was originally off a powermatic table saw. The shop I got it from had it set up on a saw that was used strictly for running dados. For that they cut the rails short & it only had a 18” rip capacity which worked out great for this bandsaw because I would have felt bad having to cut the rails down my self. I always feel bad modifying old vintage stuff, I...

New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #1: rust removal on cast iron top & refurbish action multiple videos

06-27-2016 11:03 PM by MikesProjects | 4 comments »

Video links below… Recently I purchased an older 20” bandsaw. I need a larger bandsaw that can handle anything I throw at it.. I think I found that in a mid 70’s Rockwell 20” wood cutting bandsaw. It probably came out of a school wood shop. The motor is 2hp, it has two speeds which can be adjusted with the belt, it has already been upgraded with carter guides, this big boy saw weighs over 600 lbs. I made several videos regarding this saw which i’ll post below. ...
