Etching your own copper panels #1: Intro.

10-25-2016 07:28 PM by splintergroup | 2 comments »

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...

Wheel making bits

10-25-2016 02:33 PM by Dutchy | 1 comment »

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...

Trestle Table #21: Mortise Work for fitting Tenons

10-25-2016 04:58 AM by HappyHowie | 2 comments »

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.

Pine Auger bit box #6: Page #3 in the clamps....finally

10-25-2016 02:03 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

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...

Dual Miter Saw station #5: Attaching the face frame

10-25-2016 01:08 AM by Tooch | 5 comments »

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. ...

Toy costruction #116: Sprint car finishing it up

10-24-2016 11:27 PM by htl | 27 comments »

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...

My lathe journeys. #49: My aluminum lathe tools, how're they holding up?

10-24-2016 10:30 PM by JoeinGa | 23 comments »

I made my own lathe tools using 5/8” aluminum bar stock. You can see the previous posts about them here…. 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...

Antique Radio Cabinet Retrofit #9: Part 9: Front Panel Rebuild

10-24-2016 07:40 PM by Pags | 1 comment »

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 ...
