Hello All, If you have been following Henry Wood, I just posted the final chapter. I hope you all have enjoyed reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it. http://bit.ly/brYZm9 Brian
When I go to the lumber yard I’m always amazed at the price of wood. When I finish a project and look at my scrap pile I think to myself that’s probably 50 bucks right there, and being cheap I can never make myself throw any of it away except for the smallest pieces. With scrap lumber piling around the shop I’m always looking for projects to use my scrap on. I had some long skinny pieces of cherry sitting in the shop that were about 3/4″ thick by 7/8″ wide by 4 foot long. I decided that ...
Episode 81 Entertainment Center Part 2 from kostas workshop on Vimeo.In this episode I flatten the panels I glued up. After that I cut some rabbets on the top and bottom panels at the router table. After I dry fitted the 4 panels I have already glued up I got some measurements for the inside of the entertainment center.
I was absolutely overwhelmed by the positive response to my Zig Zag How To blog post yesterday, that I decided to brainstorm some possible combinations (on my lunch break) using the basic steps I outlined yesterday. All of the same techniques and steps apply, and really the only difference is the woods and measurements that make up the original “sticks.” Same rules apply to width = height. Length is up to you. Please experiment with whatever measurements and combinations strike...
I made some progress on routing the legs for my octagonal table that I blogged about last time. Some of you remember that the oak was “grabing” on the router bit and the leg would shatter.http://lumberjocks.com/lanwater/blog/18200 From the advise I got, I set the following goal in my last blog: -Scroll saw /jigsaw very close to the cut line -Sand some-Pay attention to grain direction changes -Pattern route the leg Well I stuck close to the above outline and the wood did not ...
or has anyone else had trouble over on Tommy MacDonald’s site? Every time I try to do something, it sends me to the log in screen. If I do log in yet again, it sends me to the main blog page. Thus, I can’t post. Frustrating.
A new feature is coming to the Little Good Pieces blog: What I Screwed Up this Week (or month – we’ll see). The purpose of this series, besides giving you someone to point to and laugh, is to analyze things that I did wrong in the shop and find ways to correct the situation and keep it from happening again. This will be a great chance for all of you to post comments with possible solutions or alternate ways of working that might prevent these problems from occurring. At the ...
Not exactly woodworking, but close enough. #5: Just because the Tramadol says it doesn't hurt, doesn't make it so!
Oh I was feeling sooo good yesterday. Nice and flexible, no pain, lots of energy, I must be all better right? So being me, I just sort of dove right back into it as it were, and finished up the fencing. Now this did NOT involve much in the way of lifting. The hardest thing I did was to roll the air compressor out to the back yard, and hook it up. The rest was picking up one picket at a time. On the positive side, all of the pickets are up, the latch is in place, the fence is done, and the ...
