Making an ancient bucket MaFe #11: The binding (back in business or solving the Gothic knot)

04-24-2011 09:44 PM by mafe | 21 comments »

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...

Mortise Pal

04-24-2011 03:51 PM by Maddhatter | 1 comment »

Well thanks to New Tim, a new acquisition has been made for the shop. I ordered the Mortise Pal and I can’t wait for it to get into the shop. At the Mortise Pal, website, they had asked “how did you hear about us” so naturally, I gave New Tim and Lumber jocks the credit they deserve. I figure if we let the manufactures know the strength of Lumber jocks, it may help out the next person who is looking for the next new tool that will make our life easier in the shop. I...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #319: Playing Hookie

04-24-2011 01:23 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Sometimes you just have to spend the day doing something silly. I woke up yesterday morning, fully intending to spend the day drawing the next design for the magazine and getting some work done and somehow by mid-morning, I decided that I wanted to “play” do something else for the day. I think the thought first occurred to me as I was putting some things away and looked into where I stored all of my acrylic paints. The bright colours were calling to me - “Come play w...

Bootstrapping a living-room workbench #1: First cut

04-24-2011 02:56 PM by Damien Pollet | 1 comment »

So there it is, my first serious woordworking project! The plan is to buid a small but sturdy workbench from a laminated wood countertop, not unlike Kenneth's.I can dedicate some permanent room to mine in my living room, so it will probably be a little bigger, heavier and less quickly breakable down. I also intend to put some time into nice joinery and finishing, since it will be a visible piece of furniture, but that will depend on how I manage the big things (this will be my first chisel...
