A small tool gloat.

03-26-2011 08:04 PM by CoolDavion | 2 comments »

Today I stopped into an antique store that I’ve driven by several times. I looked around they had some tools (plane a couple levels and a couple squares), but nothing that matched the cash on hand or was worth the price. I was almost out the door, but took a last look in a display case. In it I spotted this little gem A Stanley, stamped H101P on the side. So a happy day for me

Jigs etc. #3: Simple Circle Cutting Jig for the Routing Table

03-26-2011 05:58 PM by BritBoxmaker | 20 comments »

Hello all. I’m about to make a small box featuring curves. Something I don’t do often. Curves that is, not boxes and it occurred to me to feature the jig I will be using to build it with. Yes I know I’ve recently posted a couple of circle jigs for the bandsaw but there is more than one way to skin a cat and its always useful to have an alternative to call on. This is it Its just a sheet of 6mm Perspex with three slots cut in it and a 6mm pin inserted in a tapped ho...

SPIRAL DESIGN #6: Hexaspiral - The triangulation way

03-26-2011 03:25 PM by BertFlores58 | 11 comments »

I decided to make a realistic work in converting scalenes to create a spiral design from a hexagon origin. At first I was thinking of the difficulty I will be facing in constructing it. Take a good look of following designs: THE DIFFERENT COLOR AND BIGGER TRIANGULATIONS. THE BLACKHOLE—The black and white in smaller strips In a way, it looks easy to construct however, creating the acute angle of less 5 deg is difficult. Here are the steps I made: STEP 1 – Make a hexa...

Many different scenarios have presented different ways to save when trying to equip your shop with the tools needed to accomplish the tasks at hand. Case in point… I am going thru craigs list & find an ad for a 1” belt sander w/ a small disc sander on the side. I call the guy up. He has an Australian accent. He tells me that he is in country visiting hi...

Redwood Table from reclaimed logs #5: Next Time I make lumber out of logs

03-26-2011 01:48 AM by lumberhack | 7 comments »

Today I had a little time on my hands (and the rain stopped for a bit) so I took advantage and cut out the rough blanks for the two small aprons and the fourth leg. Since the aprons are going to be approx. 2” x 4” when finished, I was able to just put a flat spot on the log with the chainsaw and run them through the bandsaw. PIECE OF CAKE! After I finished rough cutting them, I decided that when I make a project out of logs in the future, I will only make sizes that will fit in th...

Sketchup Mission TV Console / Entertainment Center

03-26-2011 01:30 AM by pintodeluxe | 2 comments »

I am finally getting proficient with Google Sketchup version 8. Here is my version of a craftsman style TV console. It is halfway done at this point, however the Sketchup program was very helpful in getting the proportions pleasing to the eye. Especially shaping and sizing the corbels. I printed the corbel component, and enlarged them to scale. By simply taping the pattern on my workpiece I was easily able to cut and sand the corbels. Cheers
