Adirondack Chair build how to - Betsy's version #7: Armrest assembly #2

01-18-2008 04:11 AM by Betsy | 3 comments »

This is the tricky part. Getting the angled cut on the back armrest support. The idea is that you want to cut the required 25 degree angle but not cut it across the entire length of the board. You want to cut from the shoulder of one half lap joint to the shoulder of the opposite end. Can’t do it on the table saw. You could hand chop it – but that’s pretty tough. I prefer the band saw method. First though the reason you don’t want to cut the angled back across the...

Juniper Log Furniture : Floor Lamp #1: Wicked Floor Lamp, what ribbon like movement

03-06-2009 10:09 PM by Tim & Candy Hicks | 3 comments »

Nothing like having numerous projects to work on This lamp is very ribbon like; really flat but with lots of movement. It does have a small burl. The base will be cut down to size which will also shorten the lamp so that it is not so tall. We will scribe fit the lamp limb to fit the base. I have started sanding the limb and my husband has been working on the base.

Cutting Faces in Sketchup

05-17-2009 05:29 PM by depictureboy | 3 comments »

I have just had an ahaaaaaa moment in sketchup and thought I would share it with everyone… I have always had issues cutting faces in sketchup, I have followed several tutorials and just never seem to get the grip…Today I have found a simple way to do this, that I have not seen before, but Maybe DaveR has already talked about…. Many of the tutorials I have seen involve trying to draw a new plane and getting it lined up with the axes that you want to cut and all that rig...

Dovetail of the Day #2: Day 4

01-20-2010 04:37 AM by doorslammer | 3 comments »

Took another stab at it this evening after work. I found some clear pine I decided to use since I didn’t have any more good poplar scraps. The pine seemed to be more difficult to saw, like it was gumming up the small teeth of the saw. Chiseling seemed to go ok though. The results are acceptable again, but not as good as I would have hoped. Sawing the pins seems to be the most difficult part for me right now. I did however, try something a little different tonight. As I was scrib...

Tool Gloat - My First Jointer

09-01-2010 04:26 AM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 3 comments »

Sunday, I saw a listing in Craigs List for a 6” jointer for $100. I thought why not take a look and sent a reply. I got a response back in short order stating that he had 2 others in line in front of me to take a look and if they fell through, he’d give me the next crack. I figured it was gone and I’d have to resume my patient vigil. Well, I was surprised and today I brought it home. It has new blades and a new drive belt. The bed and fench are free of rust but looks like...

Power Tool Storage

09-29-2011 07:02 AM by Trev_Batstone | 3 comments »

Because my workshop is in my garage and space is at a premium, I have had to make use of available space for storing some of my power tools. In this photo, You can see my compound mitre saw sitting high on a shelf near the ceiling, and my router table hangs from that shelf by two sturdy chains. It is out of the way, giving me as much floor space as possible in my confined workshop.

An unlikely tool

12-11-2012 01:00 AM by RussellAP | 3 comments »

I love this tool. The minute I get a blank to round, out it comes. It’s a breeze to sharpen, it cuts smooth and it fits into some places you wouldn’t think it would. I am getting one more 19” and a smaller one for the tighter spots. I may get 4 or 5 and shape them differently for specific tasks.
