Building My Work Shop #2: Next up Air Filtration

10-18-2010 12:14 AM by Crushgroovin | 3 comments »

As winter comes up on the horizon I will be doing most of my work with the garage closed. That will make my dust problems even worse. I have had Asthma all of my life. It improved as I reached adulthood but probably not as much as it would have if I had not been smoking a pack a day for 15 years. Hey if you drank a fifth or two of Vodka a day you would smoke too! LOL All I can say for that is my 7 year old son got me to stop smoking last Christmas by telling me not to bother coming back in...

Making all wood folding knives #4: Setting,Shapening the Blades and Body

04-30-2016 09:50 PM by poospleasures | 3 comments »

Lets work the blades. Hold them together and put them into the body with bolster and blade holes in line. Push down on them a bit and push a sharpened 6p nail thru all four parts. Shape the back end of the blades as shown in the picture. The nail will be the temporary pin for a while.Extra careful now as I have broken a spring in some of these next steps. You now have tension between the blade ends and the spring ends. Now one at a time gently close a blade half way then finish to cl...

Locking Tenon & Lumber for the top

06-02-2016 08:04 PM by Tooch | 3 comments »

So it’s been a while since I posted anything on my table, despite my continued work on it. Sometimes I find its really hard to carve out a portion of the day to do this, but I feel like its really cool to document all the work that goes into something like this. So the last entry I made showed both of the sides getting assembled, and now its time cut the long stretchers that go in between. This was a fairly physically demanding task, and the board really cantilevered over the edge of...

Machine mods, oddities, and fix-ups #1: Old Delta 20" Bandsaw

04-11-2011 03:43 AM by Loren | 3 comments »

I’ve had the saw for a long time. It was an unappealing, original but distressed gray and when I set out to paint it I found some white metal primer laying aroundso I used that. I liked the way the white reflected light so I kept the color. Maybe someday I’ll get around to painting it some fancy color, but for nowI like the white. Originally the old girl was wired for 3 phase. I put 22 amp motor on her. It’s115 volts, which is odd. My electrician put in a 30 a...

Saw Making #3: Gents Saw Conversion Part 2

06-23-2016 11:05 PM by AgentTwitch | 3 comments »

Part two of the Gents Saw Conversion series. This may be a bit verbose, so I apologize ahead of time. After all, we are just drilling holes… The next step in the conversion process is drilling holes. A lot of holes. You will need a variety of forstner and twist drill bits to complete these steps. With your template affixed to your stock, use an awl to create reference points on all of the indicated locations, or use the spur on the forstner to create a divot. Apply moderate pr...

Marine Corps Naval cannon project #6: Another boring adventure.

07-26-2016 08:57 PM by Trapper brandenburger | 3 comments »

Today I finished up mortising the crossmember in and bored them for all thread. (Thanks for the tip tblank). I also routered a groove in the elevation platform for the elevation wedge to slide on. Then I did a dry fit of everything. I have a few other things to do on this project but I should be able to start glueing tomorrow! Elevation platform and wedge. Here I am marking the main runners for boring be taping this all thread thru my crossmember. Time to test fit! Front Rear

Goodbye Linden Tree

09-24-2011 06:34 AM by mmh | 3 comments »

This is a sad ending to a beautiful shade tree that must have been planted some 50 years ago in front of our house. It was situated on the public property on the streetside and provided a lot of shade. It almost provided too much shade for my front garden area, as the limbs drooped quite low and the numerous branches were quite dense. The main trunk divided into three secondary trunks and two of them were noticably dying and branches were constantly growing and drooping over the powerlin...

Skill Building #2: Learning More of the Things!!!

08-22-2016 10:08 PM by CraftyCantrell | 3 comments »

I’ve switched to a largely video format, as it’s easier to hit record at the beginning of a process, hit stop at the end, and then edit out the unusable bits. This week I undertook Lesson 1: Assignment 6: Tongue and Groove Joint Here is the video: Link included above, as I’m not sure that the video is loading correctly here. And you can read my full write-up on my regular blog
