Vacuum Chuck

01-15-2015 06:27 PM by woodshopmike | 0 comments »

I was needing to make a vacuum chuck for my lathe and didn’t want to use a faceplate or fool with using a nut fastened to the chuck. The quick n dirty is that I used delrin I had laying around, a 4” PVC union, and some weather stripping to make my vacuum chuck. The majority of the process was completed using my wood lathe. For the detailed how to check out my post How to Make a Vacuum Chuck!

On this day, I continued the work on the table top / main shelf. I had to re-do some 1×3’s due to a lack of planning All in all it didn’t seem like a lot of progress, but as you all know, a good preparation is half the work.

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #3: Cleaning up main panel and distractions

10-22-2017 01:35 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Pulled the panel out of clamps yesterday after spending most of the day running around. Part of that time was spent picking up with stock which will become the legs. I had found a very rough piece of walnut, which I had a friend offer to clean up for me. When I stopped by to pick it up, he hadn’t gotten to it yet but was willing to take care of it then. So we blanked the pieces to ~20” and started jointing 2 sides perpendicular so we could square it up on the planer. Think a jointer migh...

African Mahogany & Curly Maple Coffee Table #2: Panel Glue-up

12-29-2017 06:53 PM by Reinan | 0 comments »

Got the main panel glued and in clamps this morning. I learned from some issues I dealt with on the last panel: this time I cut the matching joints with one board face up and the other face down, hopefully that will remove any saw inaccuracies and create corresponding angles in the joint. I also used the new Porter-Cable plate joiner my pop gave me for Christmas (Thanks Pop!) to better align the boards and deal with the slight bow in one of them. Seemed to help align the panels while glui...

Shop stuff #116: Modding pipe clamps with built in cauls.

02-11-2018 02:42 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

When doing glue ups, it’s always hard to manipulate the clamp, plus the cauls, plus keep everything aligned. This helps with that if you work in a shop alone. I made them a bit wider too so it helps the clamp with stability when on a bench too. An easy project from pieces I had around the shop. View on YouTube

Word Art

I have been working with word art for two years now. I love cutting out the patterns but do not enjoy the sanding. Is anyone interested in word art patterns already cut to buy?
