Going to Woodworking School #3: Safety and more Safety

10-30-2009 10:49 PM by John Fleming | 3 comments »

Our first day of class was reviewing the safety rules and procedures for the entire school curriculum. As you can imagine with over 180 new students using power and hand tools safety has to be an important part of the training we will receive. Each student must complete the safety test. This test is 200 questions covering all safety issues. Since it is an open book test the 50 page companion Safety manual will guide us through each power tool. It is a lot common sense tied to specific rule...

Discovering my Bandsaw

02-02-2010 04:38 AM by Bobby | 3 comments »

About 8 years ago I decided that I should have a bandsaw. However, not knowing anything about them, I just bought a Delta because of it’s name. I didn’t have a clue about what I was getting myself into. I was all excited when I got it home and I couldn’t wait to try it out. After a few cuts my excitement turned into disappointment. I couldn’t make it cut straight, even with the fence that I bought with it. It was so bad that even the little red plastic disk got...

Dan's Blackbutt Roubo Bench #9: Handles: Part 2

04-06-2010 10:25 AM by DoctorDan | 3 comments »

Some of you may remember a previous post, where I was looking for someone to turn the handles required for the bench. Old Pete from the Australian Woodwork Forums answered the call. The original handle brain storm. The completed project, arrived in the mail today. The timber is Australian Blackwood. Pete, was more than generous, turned two alternate handles for the wheels, and two handles for the pins, and offered to re-make them if they don’t feel right. I do like the online wood...

My Start #4: The Move

06-06-2011 03:03 PM by macatlin1 | 3 comments »

When I last left off I had moved my shop to the garage and started doing projects. Then my wife Linda started looking for a job out of state. Soon she was interviewing in North and South Carolina and in Tennessee. Meanwhile, I started deciding what to take and what to sell. My small metal lathe had been occupying a space on the floor, gathering dust between the times I used it for small jobs so I decided to make a case for it and all the little accessories that go along with it. Somethin...

Harmonica case #2: Part 2: How to make wood look like brick

07-20-2011 07:02 PM by gurnie | 3 comments »

I spent some time refining the “brick building” technique. I originally was going to do it with a dremel tool, but the lines weren’t straight enough for my liking. So I did some more experimenting and decided I am hand chiseling this. First I draw my brick marks in pencil. Each brick is about 5/8” long, 1/4” high. I draw out my pattern using a square and a pencil, alternating the pattern up the piece. then i use a chisel to dap along the line N...

Machinist Toolcart #13: Finishing Touch

09-16-2011 03:39 AM by PurpLev | 3 comments »

After realigning the drawers by fixing the slides, and trimming some drawers, I made sure everything fits. I predrilled 3 holes in the drawer fronts through the pull slots that will later be covered, one in the center, and 1 on each side: I transferred the center hole from the drawer front to the drawer and once alignment was satisfactory I transfered the other 2 holes as well: I used my combination square ruler to space the fronts from each other, and made sure that all the dra...
