Workshop Development #22: Ripping the rotted masonite off, adding the Hardie siding...

04-25-2011 03:33 AM by dbhost | 4 comments »

It’s been a busy weekend. I managed to rip off the old rotting pine and Masonite siding and trim from around my garage doors, and replaced it with products from James Hardie. I also was finally able to properly install both 5” louvered vent ducts for the air conditioning. I still need to replace the semi-round trim, caulk and prime it all up, install the door gaskets, and paint. I started caulking, and very quickly ran out of caulk…. My trip home from work tomorrow wi...

Wedding Clock #3: Making Panels

04-25-2011 12:31 AM by kenn | 3 comments »

It’s time to glue up the panels that are needed. I’m making a frame and panel as the back of the clock that will consist of 2 panels stacked on top of each other, held in place by the 3 horizontal rails and 2 vertical stiles. So I’ll need 2 panels for the back. Here’s one of those. Note the carpenter’s triangle that I use to keep the parts aligned. I have already glued the bottom two pieces together but we’ll walk through the rest of making this one. ...

The bindingback in business or solving the Gothic knot! Ok Mike, I’m back, was actually afraid the willow would be useless now, but I put them in a bag of water, and they even started to make roots… Hmmmm, øhhhhhh, baaaaa. Someone help me!!! Ok, if I close my eyes and try really hard… First take a knife and divide the willow branch in two.It might sound easy but it takes concentration, and that you take full control of the knife. Take the branch and bend it...

Table Saw Rebuild #4: Adding A Mobile Base to the TS.

04-24-2011 06:05 PM by Hersh | 3 comments »

Well here I go again adding additional improvements to the TS. Since I want the ability to move tools around the shop as needed I needed to add a mobile base. I came accross this design in “Shop Notes, Vol. 20, Issue 115. I like the way it works. It is easy to use and rolls around very nicely. At this point it has only one draw back. Until solve the sawdust collection promblem the sawdust falls directly down to the large plywood wings. Keep that in mind as you look at these pictu...

Museum Microscope Box Conservation

04-24-2011 05:18 PM by BritBoxmaker | 11 comments »

Hi there. About a year ago I posted this as a restoration project. After some discussion with Jenny, our Museum administrator, it turns out that it wasn’t restoration she was after but conservation. There is apparently a difference. Restoration. Returning the item to as close as possible new condition. Conservation. Arresting the decay/ decline of an object and securing its condition so that it doesn’t deteriorate any further. So here are some before and after conservatio...
