Bamboo #2

10-28-2010 01:12 AM by WoodArtbyJR | 5 comments »

Well, here are the steps that I accomplished to get to this point. I did run the cut strips thru the drum sander to clean them up a little and to take any imperfections out so the glue would hold better, at least that was the plan. I hope to take the clamps off tomorrow and maybe run it thru the drum sander to see if my design will hold true. Misc. bamboo pieces I have to work with Cut blanks to be cut into strips Cut strips Strips turned on edge Bundled edge pieces Hopefu...

Workbench #8: Installing the end vise

10-28-2010 12:20 AM by Clay Ortiz | 3 comments »

Well work picked up for a while so I haven’t had time to post any progress till now. In this post I will show what I had to do to get the Veritas Twin-Screw vise mounted. I originally was planning on using the Lie-Nielsen Twin-Screw vise but had to change when I realized the dog holes would interfere with the chain. The biggest issue with the change was that the instructions for the Veritas vise said you needed to have 1-1/2” of clearance from the bottom of the top for the receive...

Bedroom Wall Unit #8: Spraying is becoming better

10-27-2010 10:51 PM by depictureboy | 2 comments »

I want to thank everyone who commented on my spraying conundrums the last couple weeks… I am now adding 2 dixie cups of denatured alcohol to 1 quart (sprayer cup) of dewaxed shellac…it is going much better. I also realized that the sprayer shipped with the largest needle installed. I downgraded to the smallest and that seems to be going much better now too…. You cant see it in the picture, but the finish is super clean…I put on about 6 coats last night and yo...

Stitches removed

10-27-2010 09:43 PM by Rustic | 11 comments »

Well, yesterday was the day I got my stitches out. When IO arrived they announced a tornado warning for our area. So after an hour in the halls of the Dr. office I finally got them removed. Still looks bad but the nurse said that it would eventually look better. So now I am easing myself back into it slowly. I am also getting ready for a show on the 13th of Nov. I also bought a box of misc. basswood pieces and the thumb guard for 24 bucks. I also seen Dustin Ward at Woodcraft Sat. So all in a...

mahogany bed

10-27-2010 08:33 PM by dub560 | 2 comments »

ok, so i’m putting the brakes on the walnut dresser project but building a mahogany bed to complete my bedroom set. can anyone suggest which surface mount bed brackets are good enough to use? lee valley has some but i’m not sure which to choose. according to fine woodworking the mortise hinge that is commonly used is not strong enough(something about end grain not having good strength for screws to bite into—on the rail part of the bed)a href=”http://s815.photobuck...

Stanley Bailey Plane Restoration #3: No. 5, Type 18

10-27-2010 06:25 PM by BradJacob | 27 comments »

Hey everyone. Last year I became interested in restoring planes. I created one project blog where I was restoring an early Type 9. Then, while working with on a wood project, the Walnut got me real sick. It took almost one month to get better, then spring came, summer, BBQ’s, band practice, life….. Here is it fall again and I’m back in the shop restoring my planes. I got two going right now. One is the old Type 9 and the other is a Type 19 that I picked up on eBay for something like $10 bu...

This is just a follow-up to Jim’s blog on giving advice. I found a woodworking site that translates woodworking terminology to English. Just click on the link below. I haven’t gone through the whole thing so it would be nice to know if it’s useful.

Just for Fun... #35: Feeling Better!!

10-27-2010 02:37 PM by littlecope | 16 comments »

I started feeling lousy a little over three weeks ago… woke up one Monday morning with a chill that I just couldn’t shake. I don’t know if it was a cold, or the flu, or what, but I haven’t felt “normal” until this week…I didn’t even have any specific symptoms, and it wasn’t a knockdown, drag-’em-out thing either, I just had the blahs… didn’t feel like Woodworking… I didn’t even feel like hanging out here on LJ...

Table saw upgrade #3: Getting Closer?

10-27-2010 02:22 PM by dedalo | 3 comments »

After a while away from the garage, I could clean it up and make some room to keep with the table saw.I changed the incra postioner for a longer 25”, I cannot import the 32” because of shipping cost, but I think the 25” will do. I made a top out of some left overs and tried a “sandwich” of MDF and hardboard. I think the final one will be made out of fenolic multilaminate and hardboard. this top desn´t have a hardwood frame becouse is just to try things out...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #146: Deep Thoughts for a Wednesday

10-27-2010 11:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I must really be getting old. I have an appointment to get my eyes checked this morning and I have been up since just past four being restless and thinking about it. It is now just after six and I have already gone through most of my mail and read the headlines and picked around here a bit. It didn’t help that it rained all night and I know that I will have to drive on the wet highway. Last April I had to go on the same road after the rain. The road is not in great repair and a...
