My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1737: A New Series of Designs - Almost Ready!

05-30-2016 05:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It seems like I haven't blogged forever. Even though I have only missed for a week, it feels like much more time has passed than that. It has been over six years since I began posting nearly every day, and breaking away from that routine has been difficult, but I feel for now it is necessary. We are going though many changes at this time. Keith and I have made the decision to move into a larger place and there is much preparation that needs to be done to make our move go smoothly. Fo...

I have started on the repower of my Delta 46-715 lathe. I am replacing the reeves drive and original motor with 1hp treadmill motor with 8 rib pulley. So far I have disassembled the reeves drive, removed original motor, drilled out original safety shield bolt holes, and tapped safety cover bolt holes 1/4-20 threads.

I may have accidently sawn it in half today My son and I were making a potting table from a couple of old pallets We cut up bits and reinforced the pallet to hold the legs It was when we were cleaning up to my horror I found the remains of what looked like cat,which I must have accidently cut in half. I poked around it with my marking pen but sadly there was no response. A unusual end to the days work.

Cedar Driveway Gate #6: Whats in an arc

05-29-2016 10:57 PM by WoodHoarder | 1 comment »

I’m gonna focus a bit on how I made the arc as it is a little more complicated than the rest of the process. To get the arc to the right proportion, I needed to laminate two pieces of wood. Here, I am laying out where the arc will fit using my template. I’m used biscuits for alignment and to hopefully protect against de-lamination. It’s important to lay out where the biscuits are so that they don’t show when the arc is cut. Biscuits are cut. ...

More working with Pine #8: back is done,some mortises chopped

05-29-2016 08:38 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Got out the chisels, clamped a rail to the bench, and chopped awhile.. Made to match the tenon. Some of the tenons were a bit too fat. Thinned them down a bit, then marked the rail to fit. Depth was around 1” deep… each mortises was chopped and fitted, I kept marking them, to tell which end went which way. Test fits.. Once I got all the mortises chopped, got the clamps and glue out…..fight was on! The rail in the vise wasn’t so bad to do, it was t...

Addendum to "Arty" my articulated friend

05-29-2016 07:48 PM by LittleBlackDuck | 3 comments »

This little blog is to supplement my project labelled ’Meet “Arty” my little articulated friend.’ which should have been or will be “projected” shortly. A brief word about the author…. I am currently chair ridden due to a sprained ankle so I can only channel my “talents” to typographic mistakes rather than woodworking ones and thereby inundate LJ with my verbal diarrhea. As the “Arty” project briefly discusses “nuts”, th...

Shop Projects #3: Air compressor upgrade - drainage whip

05-29-2016 05:43 PM by William Shelley | 1 comment »

I’m sure draining an air compressor of any accumulated water is possibly one of the least-fun maintenance activities out there. I’m assuming also that most compressors have virtually no room to fit a bucket underneath the drainage port at the bottom of the tank, so you end up having to tilt the unit to drain, which means not all the water gets out. I used a short piece of air hose (4’), a pair of 3/8 barb x 1/4” NPT fittings, a 1/4 NPT x 1/4 NPT close elbow, and a s...
