Shop Build #1: The Foundation

05-28-2015 06:20 AM by pdxrealtor | 0 comments »

I’m building a 384 sq. ft. (16×24 for ease of build) for mixed use. Everything will be setup to be easily moved out the double doors that lead to my trailer parking spot. It’s going to be like a nicely setup storage area for all my tools when I’m not on a project. A storage area I can of coarse play in and do side jobs when I’m in ‘take it easy mode’ or ‘I don’t have a house to flip’ mode. ; ) I went with a 30” deep 12”...

Beginner Plane Restoration #1: Why I decided to do this, and my initial impressions of the plane

05-28-2015 06:11 AM by bbasiaga | 0 comments »

I recently came up with a project idea that will benefit from the use of a hand plane. Unfortunately, I don’t have one! After hours of research on old threads here, and soliciting some great feedback on a thread of my own, I had all but decided to buy a Veritas #3 low angle smoother. Then, my wife’s job situation became quite unstable. While we are working that out, I thought I could spend a small amount of money and give a restoration a try. I have the time (projects on ho...

Added thoughts.

05-28-2015 03:53 AM by toolchap | 4 comments »

I had gone through a few answers and posts, replies and witticisms on my tiny blog and some of my projects. The thought that struck me was that many of us have unfinished projects and things we mean to get to. Stuff that should be done. I found quite a while back that the “To be done” list was starting to exceed both my capacity to actually do it in one lifetime and my paltry budget. I also realised that I dream a lot. Dream of stuff, get ideas and let my mind meander down ...

turning redwood logs on a lathe

05-28-2015 12:13 AM by BigD1 | 2 comments »

I need a memory boost. I watched a video of a gentleman from Ireland, who turns Redwood Logs on a wood lathe, that uses a chain saw mounted in a bracket, with saw running full R.P.M’s and he turns the logs by hand. His lathe is massive and is mounted in a concrete block. He turns the logs into chairs, and also turns wooden sculpture’s of abstract design. I believe the demo of turning logs was still photo. He then demo’s how to turn a lidded box on a shop lathe, to a class of...

Senior Year Final Project: Boat #5: Final Completion

05-27-2015 06:06 PM by Steve Magdinec | 4 comments »

Welp after a lot of hard work, money, blood, sweat, and haters, I am finally done with the SS Swordfish Slayer 5000. As previously stated, I am looking forward to a fun summer out on the Allegheny doin some angling. Eventhough I am confident in my row boat, I will be sure to take all safety precautions necessary in order to prevent myself from drowning. It’s been a long journey building wood, and I think an 8 foot row boat was a great topping on a fantastic woodworking experienc...

Chevalet de Marqueterie #5: Wife: What on earth is that Thing?

05-27-2015 04:47 PM by TobiasZA | 1 comment »

When I told her that it is going to be a “Chevalet de Marqueterie”, she told me not to swear at her! I have managed a bit more progress yesterday and today, and to me it feels that it looks a little more like the thingy that I set out to build. Quite a bit still to go though….. metalwork for the saw frame, the saw frame itself, the foot pedal system, cleaning up here and there, and then the tuning…..I am feeling somewhat daunted by the tuning part, but am sure th...

What's in my Shop #12: May 27, 2015 - Victorian Desktop Almost Done, More Milling Cherry

05-27-2015 03:02 PM by Mosquito | 0 comments » This week I’ve gotten the Victorian Desktop all put back together, and am just working on the water loop now. I ran into a little snag with a leak or two that I need to address, otherwise it’s basically done. I also finished milling up the rest of the cherry for the project I’ll be working on.

An adventure in making toys - Old Time Farm Truck #9: Headlamps and mudguards

05-27-2015 12:15 PM by George_SA | 3 comments »

I used the end of a broomstick for the two headlamps. I didn’t have a 20 mm dowel and I did not want to fire up the lathe to turn a such a short 20mm spindle and also the broomstick was just the right diameter and it was only a very short piece that was needed. The headlamps will be attached to the engine block with dowels. I also used two washers and attached them with screws to make the headlamps a bit more interesting With the mudguards I reverted back to my original plan. ...

Load bed and load box bottom Side panels Test fitting the side panels onto the load box bottom I used my 5 min kerfmaker to cut the dados Gluing the panels to the load box bottom Railings As this is a toy that must withstand a lot of playing from a little boy, I inserted dowels into all the joints. I used my dowel making jig to make the dowels. Attaching the railings to the side panels Inserting some more dowels to strengthen th...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1561: New Video Posted on my UTube Channel

05-27-2015 11:17 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I had mentioned yesterday that I was doing things in several different directions this week. Not only have I been cutting and creating the kits for the Haunted Carousels that have been ordered, but also working on a project for Tole Town, an online painting community.  I love doing projects like this. It doesn't only keep me busy, but it keeps me thinking in lots of directions. It seems that between painting, woodworking and needlework, I always have several ideas on the go and I ...
