Momi-Giri #2: Yotsume-kiri (four sided) bit

05-26-2018 08:49 PM by aerialcopper | 0 comments »

Here is a simple method for making a “yotsume-kiri”, a gimlet bit for bamboo/wooden nails. For this gimlet, I wanted to use the fewest tools possible. You can see my method for making the handle here. I used annealed 1/8” square 1095 steel key stock which cost $1.08 from McMaster Carr. Any medium or high carbon steel will make a nice bit: O1, W1, A2, 4142 all seem to be available and economical in small sizes. Even mild steel (nails, spokes, etc) would probably be fine fo...

Who Was George Hepplewhite

05-26-2018 08:35 PM by Ron Aylor | 2 comments »

George Hepplewhite was born on… let us just say at some time during the first half of the eighteenth century in… well, no one knows just where. According to some sources, he served his apprenticeship with Gillows of Lancaster and London, but the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography is even skeptical about this. Purportedly he based himself in London, where he carried… - Continue Reading -

NEW TABLE SAW!

05-26-2018 05:17 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

Got a new table saw. This is very nice and a great new addition to the shop. It has a good weight to it so it won’t move, but light enough to move if needed, also the folding up and rolling aspect. Check out the video and hit that subscribe button. New things coming up! View on YouTube

Bed Frame, out of Pine #7: Friday's Follies

05-26-2018 04:03 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Was a mean, old, LONG day….Yard sale had these two clamps.. $4..one pad was missing, oh well. Fabric was bought… Hey, the Boss picked it out…2 yards worth….and a can of “finish” We’ll see. Plywood panel needed a rebate around the edges.. Wards 78 was able, despite my sore left thumb, to peel off one layer…1/2” or so wide. This way, the panel AND the fabric will fit in the grooves…Stapler…was a POS..three tries ...

DIY 20u + Server rack. #4: final assembly and DONE!

05-25-2018 08:27 PM by dbhost | 2 comments »

As my regulars know, my forum time, and my vlogging is as real as it gets. I make mistakes, and I recover. What is not shown in my video is that I had to take the spreaders front and back off, and cut 5/8” off, and redrill the holes, which I left natural because, well I wanted to be done with the project. I thought the 19” was hole center to hole center. I was wrong. It is outer edge of the mount ear to outer edge of mount ear. So now it fits! https://youtu.be/bmaNIJWHNRI ...

Adventures in CNC routing #5: Making a "Wine" box

05-25-2018 07:13 PM by Tooch | 6 comments »

So I am currently in the process of making several wine boxes for upcoming weddings. These have been a staple of mine for the last few years, but I never explained how it all works. So here it goes! I start with a solid piece of wood, and square it up to the appropriate dimensions (usually 5-3/8” wide by 44” long). I lay out and make all my cuts, being careful to alternate between sides and ends so that the grain will wrap around the corners giving a “waterfall”...
