Some upgrades for the tiny shop

04-25-2011 07:39 PM by FreddyS | 8 comments »

Hi everyone, now some small updates on the tiny shop setup: Chisel and hand planes rack: Push block for my diy jointer, also useful for the table saw and router table Sanding block made with some scrap wood, cut so I can use a 1/4 of a sheet without wasted material The router bit rack mounted on the wall next to the clamp rack If anyone is wondering why I take the extra effort for the look and finish on the racks, which are supposed to be more functional than decorative...

Hand Tools: Thrift Stores, Hock Shops and Garage Sale acquisitions #7: Two More Task Lights

04-25-2011 05:39 PM by Lee Barker | 2 comments »

On the 4×132 edge sander, a two-tube fluroescent: These were stylish in dining areas what, 40 years ago? I went looking for one, and finally found it. It’s up out of the way most of the time, but when I need to sort through screws or bolts or brackets or hooks in the ten drawer cabinet below (originally I think for technical drawings in a classroom; I bought it from the school district at a surplus sale), I just pull it down. It’s a clever design and highly prac...

"a Hunter's Cane" - a design for a commissioned cane

04-25-2011 05:11 PM by mpounders | 5 comments »

I have been exchanging emails for several months with a lady regarding a cane design for her father. Her father has hunted extensively and has strong connections to Minnesota and Colorado. I had some ideas for a design and we refined those ideas over several months. The lady wanted to use wood from Minnesota and Colorado for the cane and for it to have hunting themes and connections to places important to her father. This is to be a gift to her father from her and her brothers for this Fa...

Lathe Chuck and chisels

04-25-2011 02:25 PM by Craig Havran | 4 comments »

Alright turners. I’m pretty new to the club and am starting to gather info for my chess set that I want to make. I know I’m going to need a chuck to hold the pieces, but with the vast difference in prices and accessories that come with some, I’m at a loss. If any of you out there have suggestions, I would love to hear them while I gather information on my own. Price is important, but I need quality (i know, kinda needy). Right now, my front runner is the Nova Midi.I am also ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #320: Pacing Yourself

04-25-2011 12:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I got up just after six this morning, which is just about right. It is good to feel like I am getting back to normal. I think six a.m. is a fine hour to wake up. Not too early whereas you would feel sleep deprived, yet early enough to get a jump on the day. It is just about right as far as I am concerned. I feel refreshed and highly motivated after the last two days. Stepping away from things for a bit really does wonders. Even if it is a half-step and I am still working on projects,...

First Bandsaw Box #2: Drawers

04-25-2011 07:08 AM by BarryW | 4 comments »

I’m completed the glue-up of the drawers and hope to figure out what I want for pulls and for the final finish…probably Watco Danish Oil several coats or more….and for pulls….I’m still mulling what I want to do…it’s annoying to have 10 different ideas on what to make for drawer pulls….some good…some odd…some tough…I thought first that it would be fun to carve an eye for one, a nose for another and an ear for the third….th...

Tool gloat: UNISAW! #8: . . . and done!

04-25-2011 04:59 AM by ic3ss | 3 comments »

I finally got the time to go to woodcraft this week and I picked up a piece of 3/4” UHMW poly to be used for a fence face. It sat until today, Easter, when I got the time to work on it. I cut it to length, cut the top corners off at a 45ยบ and cleaned up the edges with a file. I counter sunk the screw holes and tapped the steel .for the 1/4-20 stainless steel screws. I didn’t have the fence supported very well on the drill press, so a couple of the holes in the steel...

DESIGNS FOR WOOD STRIPS #4: 90 degrees bend by cut and paste

04-25-2011 04:15 AM by BertFlores58 | 6 comments »

I have changed the concept on the beveled joint for the rainbow strips. I know it will be difficult to cut and paste (glue) in reality if you are dealing with the 10 mm x 8mm strips of wood. Cutting it with the miter saw will require a tremendous control and patience. The wood wasted by kerf of 2.5 mm will add to my worry if ever I make a mistake then I cannot afford to loose more from what is remaining on my wooded strips. Dealing with the risk of doing things is already mindblogging. Bu...
