Workshop extension

05-24-2015 06:01 PM by jinkyjock | 0 comments »

As we go through our (woodworking) life we gather up all kinds of stuff we are reluctant to part with.This “Stuff” can take many forms, wood, tools, books, drawings etc.No bad thing you may say, however when you work in a small shop as I do (16×12ft.),it can quickly have a negative effect on your space management.With this in mind I recently decided to add an extension to my workshop. My idea was to add on an extension to do sanding and finishing outside my shop which woul...

new tool (sort of) Bench Stop

05-24-2015 03:25 PM by Lazy_K | 1 comment »

Bench stop!I have an “out door” work bench out by my garage. it stays covered with a tarp most of the time. I’ve been working against a wooden peg that frequently slips. So Yesterday I took an old RR spike I had lying around. It is almost the right shape to start with! made sure I knew where my helper was: lit a fire: and started banging on it! when I was happy with the shape of it, I put the fire out and let it cool. it neither needs or wa...

Studio Lighting Noob

05-24-2015 02:31 PM by Texcaster | 1 comment »

I’m experimenting and just getting my feet wet with studio photography. Raw MDF is my backdrop for the time being, the lights are second hand but even new they don’t cost very much. The camera is set on auto but I can see for this sort of thing I’m going to have to go manual. The first set is at night with the umbrella lights and the shed lights. It’s a dramatic effect but the timber gets lost. Most of the other shots are with strong morning light and the umbrel...

caveat emptor

Hi, there will be 2 posts today:I was just viewing a video of making a tool called a “chair devil” or “go devil”. I am restraining myself with great effort not to post to that cabinetmaker that he is wrong!!! wrong , wrong, wrong. Which brings me to a rant (here); The internet is a wonderful thing! anyone can post anything, anytime. The internet is a horrible thing! anyone can post anything, anytime. There are a lot of really great instructional videos out there....

Making a shadowbox table for a hero #2: Top and Shelf design

05-24-2015 09:18 AM by Mikesawdust | 1 comment »

I decided to go with elm and mahogany (sepele) for the main woods. I re-sawed two pieces of elm that had great figure and color. When I started to do a book match I realized that all the figure was on one end of each board and it would be out of balance on the table top. I found a simple solution by flipping one board on each end for end. and I sandwiched them between mahogany boards, I am installing bread board ends next and I decided to use Black and White Ebony Plugs in the project.

Making a shadowbox table for a hero #1: The Plan

05-24-2015 08:55 AM by Mikesawdust | 1 comment »

A little background:I decided to make this for a wounded warrior in my unit who is being retired due to combat injuries. He’s an awesome person and does not let himself be limited by his injuries. I won’t go into specifics on his injuries, but he was an EOD operator and was in a major detonation a few years back, since then he has not only come back to full health he competed and won several command level racket ball tournaments and excels at several sports. the military believ...
