Attaching Trophies to Wooden Bases

09-05-2010 08:28 AM by Matt (Upper Cut) | 3 comments »

Guys it’s been a while since I’ve posted, sorry about that. Things have been busy at work and I haven’t had a lot of time. I do appreciate what a great resource this is, and all the help you’ve offered. Well, I’d like your ideas again. I’m working on wooden trophy bases, and I need to figure out how to attach silver trophy cups to those bases. Problem is, those trophy cups weren’t made with attachment in mind. Take a look, here.

Jet 6" JJ6 Jointer #4: two steps forward one step back

10-13-2010 03:58 AM by Camper | 3 comments »

it has been a while since the last update and in the meantime I was able to clean up the jointer real good and figure out what knob does what. I will post some pictures when its up and running, probably the next blog entry. More importantly I was able to find some screws!!! I ended up ordering screws for the new jet 6” jointer after looking around all over the place without much luck. Figured if anything is going to fit, these would be it. Well they arrived today and their thread and...

#1 Phillipine mahogany & bubinga box, how I made it.

11-29-2010 02:24 AM by TheHarr | 3 comments »

These are my original design ideas for making my jewelry boxes. These diagrams may be a little confusing because I did not intended for them to be published. You guys are so nice, I had no choice but to share. This design was prevously used for making cigar humidors. I don’t have good pictures of them—sorry. I have lots of detailed instructions for every step to make this box. Just ask and I’ll add more to this blog. The rough cut diagram shows the sequence t...

Built in E-center, Yala #3: It is finished!

12-03-2011 03:13 PM by topcat | 3 comments »

I haven’t done one of these in a while. The build was a bit excruciating. Took 6 days, about 10-12 hrs. per day. Started on the Thurs. before Thanksgiving. That was an easy day. I just ran around getting all of the materials together and did some initial layout work and rough cut the plywood sides. These were full height and were too awkward to move around, so I used a straight edge and my new PC 8902 router to get the edges of the plywood ready for the face frames. Once the first side ...

delta 8 inch jointer rebuild #1: picked up "new" 8" jointer

05-21-2012 11:34 AM by dbol | 3 comments »

I was thinking about buying a new jointer from grizzly. I even traveled to the showroom in Muncy, PA to look at them. But I ended up getting this from a school auction. I plan on stripping the old paint and painting it a shade of blue.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1114: New Design for the Magazine and Lots of Other Things

08-27-2013 09:41 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Today was the first day of the season that I woke up and it was still pitch dark outside. Even though I am nearly through my first cup of coffee, it still is just now barely getting light. Another sure sign that summer is weaning and autumn and winter are quickly approaching. I need to write quickly today, as the day is already full and looks as if it will be a busy one. My dear kitty Coco is having some problems and I had to call the vet last night. The problems didn’t seem emerge...

Bowl Making! - Showing off some of our new toys in action!! #6: A new lathe - Powermatic 3520B ...

12-25-2013 01:48 AM by Eric M. Saperstein | 3 comments »

Well all the upgrades to our Delta DL40 proved to be maybe too much. We (as in I) sheared the main spindle clean off at the end of the inboard threads. So much for that we can’t find a part. It’s gone to a friends shop who may machine a new one for it when he gets the time so the new motor and controller won’t go to waste. We decided it was time for something new – and we ordered a Powermatic 3520B and an assortment of new accessories. We made sure we had a new plat...

So you want to go pro #2: Business Plan or not to Business Plan

01-06-2008 02:07 AM by odie | 3 comments »

Shame on us, we don’t have a business plan. Never did and never will have one. We knew what we wanted to accomplish. Banks and loan institutions insist on you having a business plan. All professional people (lawyers, accountants, and the like) will advise you to have one. I didn’t need a loan to get started, but if you are one that does need a loan, start writing. A bank will want to know that you have all of your ducks in a row. This business plan will be put in front of loan and management ...
