Which leads me to Challenge myself and of Course I have to pick one of the most complicated type...

Adirondeck Chair

04-15-2008 02:20 PM by Masterchief | 2 comments »

I have always wanted a chair for the yard to set in on those beautiful Sunday mornings, I finally found a nice design from Popular Mechanics woodworking forum and stated the project, I again had an abundance of Ash on hand and although the wood is not very good at rot resistance, i will take every effort to seal it correctly for outdoor use, but I request your advice on this. The biggest problem I have encountered so far is Ash is not very forgiving when it comes to pattern routing due to err...

The Non-Electric Chair #11: Breaking out the Beech (part 1)

01-14-2009 12:48 PM by lethentymill | 2 comments »

The timber is still moist to the touch and heavy, probably about 28% moisture, but it will be easier to cut in this condition and will dry quickly with a smaller cross-section. It is time to rough-cut the components. You may remember that I have already selected and prepared pieces for the main members – the back legs. All this hand-work makes you think of efficiency in a way that you may never have thought of it before. If you have ever cycled around the countryside and taken a wrong t...

Skateboard Bed #3: A little set back

08-28-2009 03:26 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

I completed the build on the skateboard and sent the pictures to the customer. I wasn’t exactly what that were wanting. They wanted more of a half circle at the ends of the board. I originally did a smaller tail on the bed because of the room needed. That would make the bed almost 10’. Anyway, I planned on building two anyway. I even ordered 8 wheels, so I painted up the first one for our showroom and started on their new one. Here are some pictures of the first one: ...

Kite Camera Reel #2: Reel Pressure...

11-03-2009 02:56 AM by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

I glued up the blanks for the second reel this morning, hoping they would be ready to cut out this afternoon. They were. I used the first set as a router template, which worked pretty well. I also pushed everything through the planer to thin it down. The spool parts were a bit hefty for the frame. Then I made what are called Brooxes Hangups. They use friction to keep the camera rig attached to the kite string. Keep in mind this is 100 pound test, so it’s not exactly your stand...

Triton Router -- Replaced the Worm Drive to Fix Lift Mechanism

03-15-2010 04:29 AM by thiel | 2 comments »

Gang, Like a few of you, I bought the FWW “Editors Pick” Triton MOFOO1 2.25 HP Router for use in my router table. That was about 18 months ago. Despite light use, the lift mechanism quickly broke. Triton (now owned by HTC) was apologetic and helpful with replacement parts. The culprit is a NYLON (wow, what a dumb design choice) worm drive. The worm drive strips when you lift the router a few times—-because there is too much downward pressure on the router from ...
