Adding on to the shop #2: Week 2

07-10-2011 09:02 PM by wdkits1 | 4 comments »

My helpers and I got lots done this week on the addition.We put down the T&G flooring and set the 6” x 6” posts.Got the rest of the beams installed and closed- in the side wall, end wall and installed the rafters. I got the Onduro roofing installed on Thursday and we finished up the board and batten on Friday. .It was nice to have help toting, fetching and nailing but all these things ended when my helpers began their own adventure with a trip to China.....

Turning Segmented Platters

08-08-2011 11:29 PM by Steuss | 4 comments »

Shown here are several segmented platters I designed and turnied in my workshop. When I attempted to glue the parts, I found that it was impossible to do with standard band-clamps or pipe-clamps So I had to develop an entirely new clamp which I call the Surround-Clamp It worked great! I was thinking of putting it on the market, but the Bessey clamp people discouraged me. I still think it is a great idea and am now offering the plans to those interested by e-mail. Also, I have several ...

Going Back To College & Making Some Furniture

08-22-2011 08:27 PM by Michael J. Moore | 4 comments »

So I’ve decided to head back to school. It’s hard to believe that it was two kids ago since I last stepped foot into a class room. My major is Building Construction/Construction Management and I will be taking all the courses that make up the Cabinet Making Certificate as well since most of them fit into my electives. I had the privilege of attending the Furniture Making course at Salt Lake Community College for two days right before I dropped out for a few years. The course ju...

Workshop Update #1: Organizing Miter saw bench.

01-05-2012 03:17 PM by bj383ss | 4 comments »

Hello everyone, For Xmas one of my gifts was a new Dewalt 12” miter saw. This bad boy is alot bigger thant he cheapo Ryobi that I have which has served me well for 6 years now but the brake has gone. So I had to make a new drop down table for the Dewalt to fit. Fortunately the miter saw station I built hangs on cleats on the wall. Well it just so happens that on the right side I had to extend the cleat about 10 inches past the bench to catch the next stud in the wall. So it was real ...

Summer Breeze Sailboat #3: Closing in

06-11-2012 03:20 PM by Dan Lyke | 4 comments »

Been 13 days since my last update, which means there’s lots o’ progress to report! I set up a router lathe to mill the mast. Turns out 2×4s aren’t really stiff enough for a 10’ lathe bed, and the mast needed to be supported in that span anyway, but I ended up with something passable after a bunch of hand-plane and sandpaper tuning. Every year Petaluma’s various small craft river users band together to have a “Day on the River” celebration, in ...

Sitting Bench Step Stool #2: Top, Stretcher, and Assembly

07-12-2012 03:19 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 4 comments »

Shaping The TopThe top of the Bench/Stool features a nice deep curve. This not only looks cool, but adds a lot of additional comfort when sitting. I scribe the shape onto both sides of the top piece using my template. Since the top is supposed to be symmetrical on both sides, I prefer to shape only one side of my template. I then flip it over to scribe the profile on the other side. This way there is no possibility of error and the top should be exactly the same on both sides. I also decid...

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #15: Epoxy as a pesticide?

07-31-2013 04:37 PM by Mark Shymanski | 4 comments »

Today was a pretty productive day. I spent about 4 hours epoxying the joints and sides. The puke mouse Paul (shipwright) describes in his blog worked exactly as advertised. My technique requires some refinement but it sure did a tidy and quick job of laying down a fillet. I watched Sam Devlin’s primer on stitch and glue and he shows the filletting going between the stitches. I now see why. I broke 2 or 3 getting the stitches out. I will have to try the suggested heating of the wi...

New to the group

04-11-2014 01:47 PM by eldercop | 4 comments »

First of all I want to thank the many of you who responded to my issue with Jet table saw arbor nuts with advice suggestions and support. The problem was solved with help and kindness from Grizzly who ID’d the thing as M16-2LF which I ordered from Jet by spec, with no relation to the website diagram or part number. I’m really amazed by the number, variety and quality of projects I see here, and hope mine will be up to spec. Meantime, here’s a bit about me from the profile:J...
