Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #11: Some days it just doesn't pay...

02-23-2011 07:22 AM by Mark Shymanski | 2 comments »

I had an extremely frustrating evening. We had 3 hours to work on our projects and I seem to make mistakes every other minute!!! I even poked myself with largeish splinter when the stupid dreaded miserable *^%$#@ rebate plane blew out the corner of the tenon I was trimming to size! Yeah I now realize I should have backed it up, but it and I were fighting all evening, I eventually switched to a rasp (what is the emoticon for frustrated woodworker!) I have to hand it to Ryan though, he of...

My new Roubo #15: Mon Roubo est complet!!!

02-23-2011 06:58 AM by JasonD | 7 comments »

What can I say…when the bug bites, it bites hard! I had about 1-1/2 hours after work before I had to be at the gym for Karate. I got busy with my “scrub” plane (heavily cambered iron in an a modern Stanley #5). I spent about 45 minutes in the shop, got the bench almost entirely roughly flattened, and still had enough time to clean up and get to the gym on time. Well, things went great at the gym (I got promoted! :) ) and came home pretty pumped up. So, I got busy with my ...

Earthquakes and wood

02-23-2011 06:28 AM by daltxguy | 18 comments »

The earthquake which occurred on Feb 22, 2011 in Christchurch, NZ is tragic with loss of lives, destruction of infrastructure and sad stories which will continue to unfold over time. I don’t mean to take away from the human tragedy that this is and will continue to be for a long time and I hope I am not being insensitive by making a few observations about what buildings were damaged and which ones weren’t. My own town of Murchison was the epicentre of a 7.8 magnitude earthqu...

Church Clock Project #4: It's In The Details

02-23-2011 06:22 AM by William | 5 comments »

Since I had a very productive day and have lots to show, I’m just going to jump right in.Gables, dormers, doghouses. I’m not sure what to call them. I call them dormers. I was told today though that they are called gables. In this photo though, on the left I guess you could call my jig to build them. It is just a simple square that is, well, square. The two sides of each gable has a 45 degree bevel across the top, a 35 degree bevel down the back, and a 20 something degree angle go...

The Basement #13: Shop Closet - Redux

02-23-2011 05:27 AM by JL7 | 4 comments »

Well this has been on the to do list for awhile, not an epic project, but just an effort to get the odd tools and fastners settled into one area. This part of the shop used to be a family room and it had this odd closet (on an angled wall). More work to be done here, but the basic shape is in place: broke up the the 3 piece tool cabinet, removed casters and made two side by side stacks. Covered with dumpster bound tabletop. Ripped oak strips for bin holders. And then Cha...

PARABOLIC DESIGN #1: Ellipse formed from a Parabola

02-23-2011 05:01 AM by BertFlores58 | 9 comments »

A section cut from a conical solid along the vertical axis will give us a parabola. I don’t want to explain much on how it constructed however this parabola can be cut using straight line cuts. On sketch up, it looks like this - From the looks on the drawing… a lot of planning came up with the following questions as my guide: 1. What wood should I use? At first, I was about to use a plywood with flats be covered with veneer of two different wood color however, the ven...

Templates #3: Bandsaw Boxes!

02-23-2011 04:58 AM by dakremer | 9 comments »

Man….I’m having WAY too much fun making templates. I need to get in the shop and actually build something for a change! I dont know what is wrong with me! :) The possibilities for bandsaw boxes are ENDLESS. However, here’s some to start you guys off with – probably ones you’ve seen before….but maybe not. I will definitely be adding more later. I already have some crazy ideas in my head. Just don’t have time to draw them right now! Enjoy –...
