A Strategy for Woodworking #57: The Battleship

08-03-2015 02:55 PM by Gary Rogowski | 4 comments »

Projects come, projects stay. I walked around the shop one day to count the projects I had started only to put down for one reason or another. I got depressed by the number 20. Unfinished for any number of reasons. I cut a panel too short on one. I wasn’t sure of the curve of another. Not hard to make a new panel, 0r try to mock up the curve. That logic does not fly in the face of a simple defeat. I just let the projects linger, go to your corner. What is it that stumps me? Probably this ...

I found an original Milkmans Workbench!

08-03-2015 02:48 PM by kaerlighedsbamsen | 4 comments »

The other day i found what looked a lot similar to a Milkmans Workbench on a local used-items-site for sale for about 20€. The lady that had it for sale knew nothing at all about its origin but wrote her immediately and had it mailed to me. Having seen a lot of these built here on LJ i thought that I would share my findings and how it was brougt back to life. Hope it is usefull. A few days back it arrived and, i must admit, looking a bit beat up. But it turned out to be an actual Milkma...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1599: Getting Back At It

08-03-2015 10:57 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Last week was not one of my usual weeks. Between getting the new computer and the issues I was having with my back, I felt that I didn't really accomplish a great deal. I have been writing here for over five years now, and I think this was the first time in all those years that I was here at home and took so much time 'off'. But sometimes it is needed. I always try to be positive and productive and have something interesting to write about. With the week that I had, I thought it b...

Building Some Chevalets, a Class Action #7: Saw Frames, Clamp Springs, and Adjustable Height

08-03-2015 05:22 AM by shipwright | 11 comments »

Just a bunch of photos from the last few days to bring the project up to date. When I left off I was about to make the saw frames and the clamp springs. That went quickly. Then I got a little sidetracked on adjustability of height for students of different statures. All of the chevys I have built have adjustable arm height by re-arrangement of graduated thickness shims, tightened by matched wedges ….... .....but in the past adjustment was infrequent and the re-...

As many of my LJ buddies know, My wife an I have been on a cross country trip which is a a story all by itself. We returned home late this week and have been getting out lives back on track after traveling for 7 weeks. We had an awesome trip and saw some remarkable country side. I looked up a few people along the way, like and Air Force buddy that I hadn’t seen in 40 years and a few lumber guys; that will be for another post. We had planned a stop in Northern Alabama to pick up some...

Hutch & Buffet #3: Buffet Doors

08-02-2015 11:32 PM by Mark | 0 comments »

The plan was to make solid wood doors. For each door I used 2 pcs of 7×17” Cherry ,sliced and planed them to 5/16 I then glued them up to make a piece 14×17.While these were setting up I cut the rails and stiles to size. Mortises and tenons were cut. And a 5/16 dado was cut to accept the door panel.Door #1 dry fit. I made some accents for the door fronts. I ripped some Walnut to 1/8×7/8, cut to size and half lapped the joints. When the glue was dried I sc...

Wood Gears #1: Experiment Making Wood Bevel Gears

08-02-2015 10:47 PM by Lazyman | 1 comment »

After seeing Matthias Wandel’s video about making wood pseudo bevel gears that will will run at right angles, I decided to attempt making a true bevel gear or at least a closer approximation. My idea was to cut a 45 degree angle on the edge of the wood disc and then cut the teeth on the band saw with the disc tilted at a 45 degree angle. Here are the steps I used to cut it on my band saw and the results. This was just a prototype but I think that I might try using this to make a ro...
