Spinning wheel #11: Making the Bobbin

08-26-2016 06:55 PM by Alongiron | 4 comments »

If my name was Jim and I lived in Michigan, this would be the easy part but my name is Steve and I live in Indiana!! First thing is to drill a 5/16” centered hole through a 6” square piece of Cherry and turn it to 3/4 inch. Next up is to drill a 3/4” hole in the center of 2 pieces of Cherry and rough them out on the bandsaw After I slid them into the wood shaft and let the glue dry, I remounted it on my lathe and turned it all to rough size. Finally I turned i...

Project idea - with a twist

01-05-2012 09:25 PM by MyChipCarving | 4 comments »

This looks like a fun project. The idea is from American Woodworker. To make it more chip carve-able, I was thinking about not drilling the large holes in all the squares and then chip carving those surfaces. That along with the cut off corners would make a really cool piece. What do you think? Step-by-step instructions are found here –

oil finish or what? #1: What finish should i use on teak bench?

01-30-2012 04:39 AM by Dave | 4 comments »

I have just completed a bench from ipe that will go in my shower but I have no idea what to use as a finish. I was thinking about an oil finish because I don’t want a finish that will peel and flake off like what you see on sailboats team will. Any comments or past experience with ipe would be appreciated.

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #79: The Dungeon Workshop - South Room Construction - Part II

10-15-2016 04:07 PM by Paul Bucalo | 4 comments »

The South Room will never make it in an issue of Better Homes and Gardens. For what I need, it’s coming along better than expected. I’m not done with the space. The East (left side) and South walls are damp, even wet, all year round, so I doubt I will ever stud up a wall. I also doubt the gold colored steel cabinet will stay there. For now it keeps me from bumping my ribs or head against the capped off gas line service coming out of the wall. You can see the capped end to t...

Musical Instruments #7: The Resonators and completion

01-29-2017 02:56 PM by johnstoneb | 4 comments »

I put the final tune on the resonators. This took a little while and a lot of miles. Temperature plays a lot in the tune of this instrument. We have had an unusually cool winter I kept the resonators in the house and carried each to the shop sanded a little then walked back in the house checked the tune then repeated. This kept the tube close to room temperature but required about 3 trips per for each resonator time 37 is a lot of trips. Everything is within 3 cents so were good to go. ...

Table Saw Refurbish

02-20-2017 01:12 AM by bacoach | 4 comments »

After reading about other LJs Craftsman 113 saw rebuild I decided that it was time to clean mine up. I rescued it about 25 years ago from an individual who was using it to cut log slabs for firewood. It had been in his barn for several years. I cleaned it up then and used it in my wood shop with it working just fine. It came with me when we moved about 12 years ago. Job responsibilities got in the way of my woodworking and it sat in my garage/shop collecting dust. It did make a great shelf. U...

Feb 2017, Demo in the Living Room

03-06-2017 04:19 PM by WoodTraveler | 4 comments »

Well Like I said about Time, money is a factor as well, I got the one wall and bought some tools to get started with. I lost everything awhile back. So new house, new life, new tools too. I had enough after the tools to do the one wall, and after it was done we were sitting and just looking around. till i pulled part of the wall down to see what was behind it. i knew it had the 4×8 sheets of press, and looky what is behind them. before I forget look at the ceiling, its that paper press ...
