Workshop Development #21: Better late than never, the shop built floor sweep installed pic...

03-09-2011 05:14 AM by dbhost | 9 comments »

This hot to cold to hot to cold weather has ended up leaving me feeling kind of under the weather…. So I spent some quality time with some hot tea and my pillow instead of shop time or posting pics here… But there you guys go I promised to get a pic of the shop built floor sweep that I installed this weekend posted. It works pretty well, with a tendency to pull material from a good distance on the floor away from the opening. There is some large debris that got stuck under ...

DoorWay Chat

03-09-2011 04:37 AM by SplashMaster | 1 comment »

The other day I was home for spring break from school and I was standing in my bedroom doorway talking to my Mom. While I was standing there I was playing with the molding around the door frame (The bottom part was all ready broken and only held on by one nail) and of course it decides to break completely of at that nail. So naturally I propped it up against the door frame. Mom said I dont think that will cut it lol. So I said I got this (b/c Im a LJ) I garbed my bottle of wood glue off my bo...

1956 DeWalt MBF 9" Radial Arm Saw #7: (Less) Dust in the Wind

03-09-2011 01:26 AM by NBeener | 37 comments »

How does a dog get the LAST bit of water out of his bowl ? With a half-lap :-) Spent too much time figuring out how to get Hurricane Walter to spew less dust, or—at least—how I could capture the dust he spews. Shroud seemed like the way to go. So …. with leftover plywood from the construction of the ol’ ChupaCaja, I made me a dust collection box. ID is about 8” wide x 8” deep x 8” tall. The joinery is (IS it called this ?) half-lap (...

Boice Crane tablesaw upgrade

03-08-2011 11:24 PM by devann | 4 comments »

I’ve been wanting to do some improvments to my tablesaw and I finally got the first one done. My tablesaw is a Boice Crane and has been around for while. I know only the old timers have heard of a Boice Crane, thought y’all might like a trip down memory lane. It’s a second hand tablsaw but it does what a tablesaw is suppose to do, and that’s all that matters. I’ve been wanting to box in the bottom and hook up the vacum to it. I made some before and after pictures...

Hi fellow bucket enthusiasts. I finally have something new to show. Today I cut the binding materials and made some bands. The photo below shows the cut materials and some of the buds. This is the most difficult part of the project for me because I’m in unfamiliar territory here. In short, today was learning through minimal instruction and maximum experience. In other words trial and error. today was heavy on the error side. I’ll take you through the step by step with the hope tha...

Restoring Hand Planes.. My methods #6: Stanley Bailey #6 complete restore w pics!

03-08-2011 05:49 PM by Dan | 29 comments »

After many weeks of hunting and bidding on Ebay I was finally able to win an auction for a Stanley #6 at a decent price. The #6 planes usually sell somewhere around the 50 dollar range and I got this one for 38 dollars. My goal is to someday have the whole set of Stanley bench planes #1 through #8. I am only 3 shy of my goal excluding the 4 1/2, 5 1/4 and 5 1/2. I still need 1, 2 and 8. I don’t see 1 or 2 ending up in my collection anytime soon but the hunt is on for the #8! Stay tuned!...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #278: Still Crunching

03-08-2011 03:14 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Today’s post will probably be a bit shorter than usual. It certainly isn’t very exciting. I spent pretty much the entire day yesterday working on my business and getting everything ready for my accountant. Actually it isn’t as bad as it seems. Just time consuming. I do have everything in one place, and it is only a matter of me categorizing everything and getting the figures in the right place. It is more sorting than anything. As I looked in my accordion folder wh...
