01-02-2014 11:35 PM by toolmike | 3 comments »

An interesting series of block planes in which the base, and often other components are made of steel – formed using a combination of stamping press and punch press. They were touted as “indestructible”.

"Romantic Imagery of a Creative Mind" --by RusticWoodArt

04-17-2007 01:47 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Romantic Imagery of a Creative Mind ....this thing we call life is but a granular drop in the sand bucket of ageless time, where as i walked in the fog of a frosty forest mist, there came the appearance of those wood spirits calling out as follow me, till in my waundering o’er glens of mossy trails i spied a log to sit a spell…. —-time passes with bleating sounds of seconds and hours, and all around me i looked at the trees who stood their ground, these are the knowing...

Finishing #3: Spray Guns and Fans

02-13-2009 02:58 AM by Scott Parsons | 3 comments »

Well, I was considering what to put down in digital ink next and decided on a few different things. I wanted to talk about the guns that I use first.I have six guns in use at any given time. Sometimes I have multiple projects all with unique colours. I have one good quality gun. It’s a Devilbiss with a 1 litre cup. I also have a Lemmer and the other four are low quality Husky brand from Home Depot. All my guns are gravity fed and have 1/2 liter cup except for the Devilbiss.I&#...

Back to work

12-27-2009 06:44 AM by deeman | 3 comments »

Today I had Christmas with my sons. Good to have them all together at one time. I made thier girlfriends pens and ornaments. They liked them very much. Today I started another wooden lock. Not quite sure what kind of wood it is. A friend gave me an old shipping skid, So I cleaned it up and checked for nails. Then planed down a few pieces for the lock front and back, I think it is hickory but not sure. I know it is very hard.

Lap Easel #1: New start - Challenging myself a little.

04-01-2010 04:23 PM by David Craig | 3 comments »

Awhile back, I was experimenting with designs for a type of lap easel for my Mom. Mom had hurt herself at work awhile back and she has difficulty doing a lot of walking. So she was looking into a hobby that she could do while stretched out or sitting on a recliner. She recently developed an interest in drawing so I thought a lap easel would be just the thing for her. Now I could have just went to the store and shelled the 20 bucks for one but, no…, I had to be a woodworker and do it ...

Contemporary Cross project #1: Sketches and planning

11-23-2010 05:29 AM by kevinw | 3 comments »

I am working on a project commission that involves some new things I am trying, so thought others might enjoy the journey. The customer wanted a small cross to go in a pastor’s study, but wanted something somewhat contemporary/artistic. First step was to submit several ideas in rough sketch form.! Second step was to refine a drawing based on the one the client preferred.

Digital Clock #4: Chips ahoy!

09-25-2011 11:24 PM by Wes Grimes | 3 comments »

Added the microchips (1) 74hc595 and (1) uln2003a per digit with 220ohm resistors on every LED. The 595s will serialize the data so that less pins are needed. I finished one digit so far. I have a good amount of the wiring done on the others, but I still have to connect the LEDs to the resistors and perf board. I wrote a test program for the Arduino and connected the first digit to it. Here is what the one digit looks like as an ‘8’: And here is a ‘5’ I bac...

Building a drum/disc sander #1: Designing and demensioning

02-25-2012 08:24 AM by WoodenSoldier | 3 comments »

For months now I have looked at other people’s homemade drum sanders with the intention of building one myself. About 4 months ago I went out and purchased some MDF to make the discs to stack into the actual drum, but quickly abandoned the whole project when I got busy. Over the last week I decided to start it back up and finally cut enough circle to build a 14” wide drum. But then I started thinking to myself “Why just build a drum sander? Why not put a disc sander ...
