I’ve been meaning to do this tutorial for some time now, so let it begin…. Etched panels add another dimension to woodworking projects. The great thing is you can create a panel with most any image, no “talent” required. Some examples of copper. The first image has the copper cleaned and then protected with lacquer, the next two have a patina applied before sealing. You can use most any material, if you can find a way to etch it. Metals are a no-br...
A couple of weeks ago Crowie asked for a wheel making bit.For that reason I contacted him. I promissed to make some tool drawings (my old profession) and did a price request at a chinese factory. In order to obtain I have to order at least 5 sets. This means that I have to order 3 additional sets. If you are interested you can get a hole 8 pieces set for E 60,—(About US $ 66,—) without shipping. Shipping cost to the USA or Australia are E 24,—(About US $ 26,50,—) Pa...
A short video of the progress on Instagram Thank you for looking!
I was not able to work long today in my shop. However, I did do some chisel work with the double mortises in the feet of this trestle table. I was able to close the gap except for about a 1/16 inch. I suspect that I did not get the depth I though I had set for the router plunge mortising work I did. Tomorrow I will trim the length of my tenons. I will trim a 1/16 of an inch and see how that fits before taking anymore from the tenons.
There is a You-Tube video which shows my process. If, interested please check it out. Here is the link: https://youtu.be/fA7NbrcE3zk
Well, some fellow named Gumption finally found where I was hiding out, so, off to the shop I went. I had that Stanley #45 set up as a “Hollows” plane. Yes, Stanley made cutters like this…...IF you can find, and even afford them. Anyway, started milling the rest of the grooves… Groove #2…fighting the grain, still Groove #3….I needed the cam rest, as I was out in the middle of nowhere. I was also no longer fighting the grain. Had to turn the bl...
I have been trying to make progress on getting the face frame attached so that I can begin the doors and drawers. Unfortunately, it has gone slower than usual, which is why there has been such a long time between posts. I have compared this process to the Johnny Cash song “One Piece at a Time”, because on most days that was all I was able to do… One piece at a time. Anywho, the process was pretty straightforward: Cut pieces, glue, nail gun, pocket holes from the back. ...
This has really been some thing different with all the frame work, a very fun and enjoyable build. I still need to make a new better indexer but this one still does fine so why bother?Here’s some tire how to shots and videos. Here’s where I stick the bolt through with a washer. Added double sided tape to the wheels so they won’t slip, then tighten the bolt to the wheels and indexer.The indexer needs no tape it has sand paper glued to it. Here we see...
I made my own lathe tools using 5/8” aluminum bar stock. You can see the previous posts about them here….http://lumberjocks.com/JoeinGa/blog/54554 http://lumberjocks.com/JoeinGa/blog/52914..Several folks have asked me how the aluminum has held up as far as getting gouged or bent from banging against the tool rest. So today I took a few pictures. As you can see, there really isn’t much more than surface scuffing on the tooling. I have had some pretty hard catches, but th...
Its been over a year and a half since I stopped working on this project… sorry for the delay to those that have been following this project… hard to believe so much time has passed. Anyway, when I got started on rebuilding the front panel I hit a snag… my integrated amp wasn’t going to fit into the front panel the way I wanted it to. It was very close, but it just wasn’t going to work. I had to stop and rethink the project. So the cabinet has been sitting in ...
