Building the Spine Desk #3: Two Steps Forward, One Step Back...

02-08-2016 10:20 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

[Above] Here’s the fix for the bracket size problem. There’s so much glue surface on it that I’m confident it would hold. But… [Below] When I put it on the spine, I discovered that I hadn’t thought far enough ahead in my fix. The side pieces are not long enough to cover the spine segment completely. To be exact, they are 3/4 inches too short=the thickness of a spine segment. :( [Below] So I’ll dig out that scrap piece of very similar plywood ...

Shop stuff #36: A bit more insulation

02-12-2016 07:57 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I did some more work to the shop a few weeks back. I finally got up the desire to get the footage put together. I must admit that I have been pretty inactive lately. I guess there must be some bear in my, wanting to hibernate all winter. I am embellishing a bit of course. I do have my chores to do around the house, and winter has not been all that bad this year, relatively speaking. It has been pretty mild. Not so much the last couple of days, but I am not going to complain. A littl...

Orchard Street Sofa #11: And we're back.......

02-27-2016 12:49 AM by AandCstyle | 0 comments »

Unfortunately, I can’t remember what I did yesterday, much less 3 days ago. Okay, where was I? I made the spacers for where the back rest abuts the back legs. I milled some stock to 1.5” wide by 9/16” thick, then drilled the 5/8” holes. And cut them to 1.5” square Then rounded them with the combo sander They aren’t perfectly round, but they won’t be seen and I suspect that over time humidity would change their shapes anyh...

Current Project #30: Playing with Marbles

04-04-2016 03:28 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

Just got the basic parts cut for a marble automata ala Steve Good. I guess it’s supposed to be a scroll saw project, but to me it’s easier with the big old saw.

Preface:I’m a mechanical engineer with over 25 years of doing precision mechanical design. Everything from instruments used on the telescopes of Mauna Kea, to semiconductor capital equipment, to automation tooling and biomedical instruments.I’ve designed more than a few motion systems in my time and have used linear guides of various types in the past and am very familiar with them. This of course is a significant handicap as a woodworker hobbyist, as I will like as not take somet...

Updated Dust Collection #1: Ceiling Mounts

04-27-2016 07:31 PM by Redoak49 | 0 comments »

I have recently started upgrading my shop dust collection from a 1.5 HP Jet to a Oneida Super Dust Gorilla. The old system was piped with 4” PVC but this was not adequate for the new cyclone system. Looking at the various options, I went with 6” SDR35 PVC piping and fittings. Fortunately, I have a Menards which stocks both the 6” pipe and the fittings. My dust collector is in my garage and then piped into my shop across the ceiling. I did not like the metal strap han...

A week into this project I have made some advancement. Two lower shelves were constructed and lots of hand sanding was done. Next will be the pieces that hold the fishing rods in place.

cornhole boards #4: Assembly

05-05-2016 03:21 PM by VonlederHosenschnitz | 0 comments »

Now that all the pieces are cut you need to put them all together. So you need to start with the frame, making a 2 ft by 4 ft rectangle out of the 2×4s, after you have that you simply attach the sheets of plywood onto the top and repeat for all of the boards you make

Unisaw Restoration #2: Call the midwife

05-17-2016 01:12 AM by Rapola | 0 comments »

I started breaking down the pile parts that you could call a unisaw. Despite the heavy surface rust, the tops cleaned up pretty nice. ~1.5 hours total time to remove the top and extension wings run a wire wheel across them then hit with 100—>220 grit in the ROS and coat with some wax. I wasn’t sure if the tops were too far gone, but so far so good. I’ll probably run one more polish (fine sanding) and waxing before final install, but for now it’s one big item ...
