Maybe the beginning of a larger project #4: Bulkheads cut and mast material bought

07-13-2013 06:44 AM by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

Made good progress today. Cut out the longitudinal bulkheads for the flotation compartments and then sandwiched all four pieces together to fair them all at the same time. It is amazing to me how much wood can be removed with a hand plane. This being pine plywood I can set the good ol’ block plane for a more aggressive cut than I’ve ever done in maple or oak and was just hogging off great ribbons of material! I messed up cutting a bit so I briefly thought of breaking ou...

New Caster Wheels for Contractor Table saw

10-04-2014 05:08 PM by bobdurnell | 3 comments »

I finally found a supplier for the rubber caster wheels on my delta contractor table saw. The old ones had chips and had worn quite badly. The supplier is in Pennsylvania of course but I used a digital caliper to measure the specifications. I sent for eight and I have installed them and they are an exact match for the old ones. I also have a stand for the radial arm saw but I put a band saw on it, uses the same retractable caster system.

Garage Re-Do #8: Almost There -- Mega Model

02-06-2009 05:20 PM by MyOldGarage | 3 comments »

I don’t know how many people have went to this extreme, but it’s about the only thing I have time to do right now . . . it takes very little time to add/refine to the Sketchup model. Here’s what the garage looks like in it’s current form . . it’s about 90% there. I don’t have some things in there yet, but it’s a pretty good picture: Right now the biggest thing is the clutter . . . the “before” photos were a bit of a worst case sce...

Back on that Horse - Arts & Crafts Mantle

05-07-2009 01:23 AM by CaptainSkully | 3 comments »

So, today I did my first woodworking in the shop since I cut my finger off. I installed the splitter on my table saw. It only took five minutes. As my fellow woodworkers know, it’s a huge pain. It’s in the way when you try to measure the width of every cut (so I’m resorting to using the tape on the saw), and it can only be used for cuts greater than 1-1/2” wide (otherwise the push stick won’t fit through. I’ve yet to see how it works with the dado blad...

Walnut and Lacewood Crib #2: Status Update

05-26-2009 05:33 PM by HokieMojo | 3 comments »

Well, I’m about 3 months past my deadline to finish the crib I’ve been building. I was planning to shoot some photos with some status updates when I had a router mishap. I was routing channels for the gate slides to rest in and the router jumped and ran accross the leg on the headboard. This was the point when I got fed up and quit for the day. At this point, I can’t disassemble and rebuild because of my timeline, so I’ll have to accept it and move on. I did ru...

First Box #6: Almost ready to glue up!

12-06-2009 12:31 AM by Bret | 3 comments »

Today I decided that the lock miter joints just didn’t look good enough, especially since some of each corner will be exposed once I fit the walnut panel for the lid. So I trimmed each at the table saw and am pretty happy with the results. I used a different technique for this cut and it worked well enough to keep everything straight & square, at least as far as my instruments can detect. So I then trimmed the lid panel to fit (“panel” seems an odd name for it—...

Mobile cart feed and finishing table

02-05-2010 08:44 PM by Tuuek | 3 comments »

I had an idea today for a couple of pieces I plan to make for my shop. Im sure its nothing new but I think it will be handy in my single car garage shop. I figure the mobile cart is handy and then why not add a table to sit on top as a feed table and finishing table. All of which will be mobile. Here are the quick plans I drew up. I didnt add measurements because right now I dont have a clue how big or small I want to make it.

Roll Top Secretaries Desk #2: Project Done

09-07-2010 06:22 AM by Jim | 3 comments »

Well the Roll Top Secretary Desk is now finished. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/36860 It’s been many months in the making. What’s really amazing is that I didn’t really have any “Oh No, what have I done!” moments with this project. Everything just went together well and did what it was supposed to do. I wish all my projects went like that. Some of the real turning points of the project were: I was buying the canvas for the tambour, wondering if...

camphor tray thing #2: finishing and delivery!

12-22-2011 02:59 PM by Pete | 3 comments »

I neglected to take photos of the copious amounts of sanding that followed the initial shaping. There was some chisel action in there but not too much. Visited carbatec in sydney last weekend and picked up a spoon plane thinking that it might help clean up the inside. Total bust, maybe I was using it incorrectly but it just didn’t want to work very well at all. At least it was only $26! Picture in your mind a beardy man with dustmask and eye protection wielding an angle grinder wi...
