handsawgeek's Lathe Stand: A Hand Tool Build For a Tailed Appliance #11: Done!!..But Not Finished

02-02-2015 02:36 PM by handsawgeek | 3 comments »

‘Git ‘er done!” -Larry The Cable Guy’s Over-Used Tag Line. The 2015 Official handsawgeek Workshop Project List tells me that I had to get this lathe stand finished by the end of January. And, I made it!! Here’s the synopsis of the past two weeks…. To start things off, a trip to the BORG was necessary to buy a few more items of hardware to complete the project. Usually when I’m there, I make it a point to visit the “70% off sticker” cull lumber cart, just to see what’s there. M...

Barnsley Reproduction Build #16: Making the Table Top

02-17-2015 03:25 AM by stevo_wis | 3 comments »

My friend suggested that we take a intermediate cabinet class at the local technical school. I had attended such a class many years ago, and even though we both have nice shops and have been woodworking for a long time, we signed up. The class workshop is almost brand new and full of state of the art machines including several saw stops, a 10 inch jointer, an unbelievable sliding table saw, and a 42 wide belt sander. The instructor is good and the students all seem great and all are at...

Building my version of the Essential Tool Chest #1: The beginning

02-27-2015 04:27 PM by johnstoneb | 3 comments »

I have always wanted to build a Gerstner style wooden tool box but the drawers were designed more for a machinist than woodworking. The project has stayed on the backburner for a long time. A few months ago i saw a picture and downloaded an article from FWW on the Essential Toolbox by Mike Pekovich. I had built a wall cabinet based on his design earlier and found that the design lent itself very well to personalizing it. The toolchest design seemed to be the same way. I really wanted a th...

Guitchair #2: Dry fit, dowels, and chickening out

03-02-2015 02:24 AM by CueballRosendaul | 3 comments »

I’m still plugging away on the guitchair project. I did a dry fit today and found an issue I needed to fix with one of the dowel holes, it had been drilled off center and split the corner of the piece. I left a few of the original dowels in place because they were rock solid. I just had to make sure there weren’t any in two directions which hinders assembly. The chair is in pieces on the bench and should be ready to assemble in the next few days. I had been playing ...

Dressing A Cupped Bench Top

03-25-2015 01:29 PM by Texcaster | 3 comments »

My bench top cupped, enough that a 3mm MDF packer was needed on the tail vise to plane a short piece. This job has been on the back burner for awhile, today was the day. A storm was forecast for the afternoon, I wanted to have some polish on the bench before the storm. To get the job polish ready was probably about one hour. The outside edges were planed with the grain at a setting of about .35mm, being careful not to plane the tail vise. To cross plane, the setting was about .25...

"Rustic" by RusticWoodArt #5: “Why I AM Rustic”

03-08-2007 05:53 PM by frank | 3 comments »

“Why I AM Rustic” ....and so this thought just travels an un-raveling course through my mind now, as i am bent into the natural flow of all this landscape that surrounds me, as i am walking out the feelings that society has grafted into my core, yes those un-natural callings of urges that say and tell me to play the game their way and then these same ones tell me that if i hold true to their way, then in the end i shall not be forgotten but yes , “you also will inherit a prize when all is ...

Hockey Stick Bedside Table #3: Drawer

08-24-2007 05:41 PM by melski | 3 comments »

Built a drawer to fit the opening in the table. Nothing fancy, just some plywood left over from some other project. Since I was using hockey sticks for the front, I made it shorter by their thickness so when the drawer is closed it fits flush with the table opening. I added a handle to allow easy opening and a rotational hockey stick piece in the back to prevent the drawer from falling out if pulled all the way. Just rotate the stick to install and it rotates vertical for interfearance on...

Constructing "Old 99" #15: The couplers

09-07-2008 02:06 PM by MrWoody | 3 comments »

Before I left the shop last night, I drilled a 5/16” hole at the inside of the car coupler. This morning I cut, sanded, sanded, and sanded some more to shape both couplers. I cut 4 axles to length and glued one wheel on each axle. Now I need 4 trim spacers. They are 1 3/8” X 5/8” X 3/8” with a 7/32” hole and a 45° cut on one end. Now I need to make four wheel trims. On the plan there are 9 dimensions and 2 diameters and I could do the layout. But these are full size plans...
