Joinery Bench #2: Stanley #8 and Stanley #40 all set to get to work on roughing lumber.

12-14-2017 06:34 AM by Holbs | 0 comments »

I had a rough time with the Stanley #8: the frog wiggled, was not square, was not flat, chip breaker is either not original or something else but I had to take off 1/8” of chip breaker so that both blade & breaker would retract fully. Was a good learning experience on how to make things right with a plane. For the Stanley #40, it had original squared blade. Took time to figure out about camber but I went with 4” at a 30 degree bevel angle. How to ensure you are close to y...

An Attempt to Replicate a Simple Tool Box

12-13-2017 03:46 AM by GLowz | 2 comments »

What I thought would be a simple little project has now turned out to be anything but simple. My thoughts were to reproduce an old tool box of mine and give it to my son as a gift. He always loved that old box, as did I, but since it has been in my possession he has only been able to view it from afar. At first glance I saw that it was thin with mitered corners, old hinges and a simple hook and eye latch. As I began to reconstruct the box I noticed that this wasn’t just handmade dove...

Toy Construction #164: 34 coupe Put in the time but not much progress today

12-13-2017 12:23 AM by htl | 14 comments »

Seem like I spent more time scratching my head than making anything. Worked some more on the radiator. Then on to the bonnet. I need to make my mind up if I want the front wheels before the radiator or out back. Would like some input on this.

Christmas Gifts #2: Toy Machine Shed 2017 In Progress

12-12-2017 09:02 PM by HandyHousewife | 2 comments »

After a few hiccups (including a very minor kickback accident—I’m OK, but it definitely hurt!) the toy machine shed is starting to come together. My husband cut out the tricky bits on the bandsaw while I did the sanding on the other parts. Last post someone shared a link with dollhouse parts, and whew! I’m glad I’m not making a dollhouse, my skills/time/patience aren’t to that level. ;-) We had to make some minor changes, mainly due to the types of plywood I c...

In the discussion Brian's (Bushmaster) post on INDEXING DISC JIG, EASY PROCEDUREthe question came up on how to make printable indexing diagrams in SketchUp. I use the following procedure.Note: this tutorial assumes that you know the basics of using SketchUp. If you still need to find your way around SketchUp, do a search in YouTube for Sketchup for woodworkers 2017 In this example I used 40 degrees to make a 9 segment index wheel.

Shop stuff #112: A simple shelf (hand tool only build)

12-12-2017 01:08 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

Well, I uploaded this one a couple of days ago but with the new algorithms on You Tube I put it as private first. They are all getting tagged as unsuitable for advertisers and then you have to request a manual review, when it passes, then make it public. More hoops to jump through. With the few dollars on You Tube I make I can’t afford to miss those first few days that it generates, and even that is not much. I probably don’t get a cup of coffee per video…lol. This on...
