A Woodworking Hiatus

07-17-2010 03:51 AM by OttoH | 3 comments »

Well I am going to be out of the shop and going through withdrawals for a few weeks. I am hopping a plane to Gateshead England, in the morning for a three-week business trip. When I return I am off to Fort Sill Oklahoma, to see my daughter graduate from Army Boot Camp. Then it is off to the in-laws in South Dakota for a few days, finally I return to Texas on the 20th of August when I can get back into my shop after a 34-day hiatus. I shall try to log on to LumberJocks from time to time ...

Restoring History-Auburn Tool Co Try Plane #3: Lessons Learned

06-24-2011 04:32 AM by RGtools | 3 comments »

So I made a mistake. Not a big one but definitely avoidable. When I set my grinder up, I used a nice thick blade to figure out where may angle should be. Unfortunately I forgot to factor in the tapered blade on the old plane makes a RADICAL 10 degree difference to my grinding angle so I realized that I had a 20 bevel angle about early enough correct it. I tapped the stand forward so I ended up with a second bevel of 30 degrees. Believe it or not the secondary bevel is big enough to reference ...

Art Prize 2011 #9: Glue!

09-04-2011 06:08 AM by tyskkvinna | 3 comments »

I’ve been busy milling down hunks of wood to the same dimensions. wee! I got the jointer! It’s been very handy so far. I’ve been happy with it. I then did a bunch of glueing and a lot more milling and ended up with a bunch of little boards. And I made a bunch of little boards with just maple, rather than maple and something exotic. I spent a lot of time today listening to WRRRRRRRRRRR (in addition to EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE of the sheet router).... ...

Cedar wood gloat (saved from the burn pile)

11-05-2011 03:35 AM by cdbridge39 | 3 comments »

I got some free cedar wood the other day. It was in the burn pile on the bottom I tied a strap to pull it out. It was a 12 foot log about 20” across the butt. I sawed it into 4’ sections so I could haul it in my truck. I blocked some of it up for turning blanks. I guess the rest I will saw up into lumber to make stuff (lol) !!! Just think someone was going to burn it.

Dave's Wide Drum Sander Build. #8: Progress on the drum.

02-21-2012 12:08 AM by dbhost | 3 comments »

Not pretty yet, and this certainly shows my extreme lack of turning skills. I have the larger of the two outer plugs round, and have it with the groove for the pulley cut in… The pulley end large side is 5.25” dia, the inside diameter is 4.75”. I am not sure I left enough thickness on the side to prevent a blowout, but I guess we will see… The first pic is the blanks glued up and the corners clipped off to keep from beating too much with the rougher… ...

The Router Table Saga #2: My first *JIG*!!!

03-31-2008 12:55 AM by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

Well I got a chance to make some sawdust and have trued up the table frame. Was having a bit of a problem tapering instead of truing the frame, but looked a little at my process on the jointer and realized I was leaning on the inbound side too long instead of the out bound side. As I am intending to make this all with lap joints, I trolled through some old PopWoodworking magazines (that a friend of mine has loaned me…I guess that means she wants them back at some point…hmmmm)...

Building an Outdoor Shower at the Beach

06-16-2009 01:02 PM by npcarey | 3 comments »

My next big project is to construct a new outdoor shower enclosure at the back of my mother-in-law’s beach house. The current phase is design, which I think I’ve finally finished using Sketchup. I had been struggling with Sketchup until I heard about a web site called where there were tutorials specifically for using sketchup for woodworking. That got me hooked and within a week of starting Sketchup I’ve come up with a very complete m...
