Around the Shop #8: Grinder Stand, with 'plans'

04-27-2015 04:50 AM by Mosquito | 0 comments »

So along with several other LumberJocks, I got an 8” Slow Speed Grinder recently (last week). This weekend I decided to spend some time to make a stand for it. It only took me about an hour to build this, and I only used a pair of 2×4’s and a piece of 12” x 18” 3/4” plywood (and some screws)  I also have a rough set of ‘planes’ that I made for it as well. Was pretty simple to do. Unfortunately, the camera was being less than coo...

Pergola #6: The best laid plans...

04-26-2015 09:40 PM by Bermuda_Les | 2 comments »

I’d love to be able to say that all went well in this weekends pergola work, but sadly that’s not the case. The jig performed as expected, and dare I say was doing a grand job until all of a sudden something went horribly wrong. The wood was just to much for the equipment. Either the 3” pattern bit (1/2”) bent or I’ve forever damaged the shaft of my $300 – $400 Bosch router, I’m hoping it’s the bit. But it suddenly started to vibrate uncon...

Chip carving knife

04-26-2015 06:00 PM by Dutchy | 6 comments »

Last year I made two carving knives and when I was on holiday I did the first attemt to do some chip carving. I liked carving in front of my caravan but wasn,t entirely satisfied with my own made knives. So last week I made two new one’s and below you can see the process. .... I wasn,t able (too few hands) to make picture’s of the cutting process. I did this with an angle grinder..... Thanks for watching

Barnsley Reproduction Build #19: template for butterflies

04-26-2015 02:58 PM by stevo_wis | 0 comments »

I am been working very hard for the last month at my day job (have to knock that off), and so progress has been slow. Our guild als0 had a sharpening day yesterday with Dick Christensen showing handsaw sharpening as well as chisel and scraper sharpening. Dick is the best sharpener that I know. All of that plus spring coming and firewood cutting beckoning makes it tough to work on the table and I also picked up a second 8 inch jointer which is another long story. I have the stretcher all c...

It's Showtime! #1: It's SHOWTIME!

04-26-2015 02:16 PM by SawdustyDan | 1 comment »

Holy Cats! It’s gonna happen! I’ve been accepted as a participant in my first public show and sale! It’ll be at a place called “Bench” up in Omaha on May 16th. For an Old-Guy-Who’s-Been-Around-Some,it’s kinda weird how excited yet apprehensive I am about this. OK, so it’s not the Durham or Joslyn Museum gallery, but it’s pretty cool. They bill themselves as “a public woodworking shop, co-working space and artisan hub”, sort ...

Basement Workspace / V8 Mini Workbench #26: What's left? Regroup

04-26-2015 01:40 PM by rhybeka | 3 comments »

Just trying to gather up what I have left and get a game plan together. The bench has been in quasi use as I finish the vises up but the vises are going to be necessary for a few of the projects I have on board so the quicker I can finish these up and get them in use, the better! Something tells me they’ll be the toughest parts though. 1. Lower Brace – needs cut and holes bored 2. Wagon pieces – are cut but not assembled /holes drilled. 3. base block /wedge 2 – cut...
