How can I buy a New Cabinet Saw for only $20? #13: Stormin in So. Cal.

03-19-2012 02:54 AM by Chickenfoot | 3 comments »

Well the storms going thru So. Cal kept me away from the swap meets but I did sell all the r/c engines for $170 after fees and the pocket bike for $130. Looks like another storm is coming in next weekend so it might be a slow week. I’ve been told of a nice junky swap meet in the area that, when the weather gets better, I’m going to try out. Other then that I’m just going to keep plugging away. I did receive the parts to fix the 6” jointer which should be up and running...

New Handles for Old Tools

03-31-2012 04:02 AM by Brian Shourd | 3 comments »

A couple of weekends ago I received a wonderful request: my mother-in-law had an old offset socket chisel that belonged to her grandfather, which she wanted to give to her son (my brother-in-law) as a gift (confused yet?). This is one of those beautiful old socket chisels which has been used heavily over the years, and is missing the handle. Aside from a slightly mushroomed socket, this chisel was in terrific shape – no rust, no fuss. So I turned (get it?) to the lathe, and made ...

Jake's chair #4: Router rookie

06-14-2012 08:53 AM by James Alberding | 3 comments »

I really had imagined being able to grab some tools, get some wood, and slap this chair together in no time! That’s not the case though :) As I mentioned in the last entry, I am taking my time to rethink my process on this first chair to make it as easy as possible to make more chairs. I thought I had the parts pretty close after using the belt sander at work to finish my curved cuts, untill I put the duplicate parts together and I could see how far off they really were from each ot...

Segmented Stave Bowl #2: Day Two

01-08-2013 06:55 PM by TheDane | 3 comments »

With the glue dry on the two halves of the bowl, I needed to make sure they would mate up properly when glued together. I use a piece of melamine shelf board with a strip of 80-grit paper glued to it to true the two halves. I shade both ends of the half bowl with a lead pencil and sand until the marks are gone. They actually weren’t very far off, but why take the chance? I then glued the vertical spacers to the two halves, and glued the halves together. I taped the joints, then u...

Staining Raised Panel Doors

02-04-2013 04:15 AM by bobkberg | 3 comments »

I don’t know who thought up this one, but I thought I would share it. My house is a 1920’s Craftsman bungalow, and in adding to it, I’ve put a lot of effort into keeping the original feel with 5 panel doors, all stained to match the original architecture, and all the other trim. In staining a full sized 80 inch high door, I drill holes in the top and bottom and put in a lag bolt in the top and bottom and then pivot them on the ends of sawhorses. The lag bolt is kept in ...

and then it becomes....... #10: Just a little longer

01-24-2009 07:26 AM by kolwdwrkr | 3 comments »

Well I’m on the home stretch on this project guys. The main door is hung, the interior is installed and the handle is on. Now I have one more interior door to install and then I can start the finish. So the reason for this is to let everyone know that either tomorrow or sunday the project will be complete and I will post the final blog. It’s been a long road and I enjoyed every minute of it. I have to say this project took a very long time. I may have to smoke a cigar after thi...
