My 1st PIECRUST TILT TOP TABLE #7

07-19-2009 02:29 AM by a1Jim | 4 comments »

My 1st PIECRUST TILT TOP TABLE #7 In #6 we started routing with a plunge round of bit to start ourPie crust detail. Now were are ready for our 3rd 20×20”Pattern. Similar to the #2 pattern the 3rd pattern has to be set back using the same technique as before. This time because of the size bearing and router bit I set the patternBack 1 ¼” from the #3 pattern. After the same process of smoothing and trial and error I set the newest pattern on the out side edge lines and screw the pattern...

shotgun #4: The result

07-19-2009 02:10 AM by kolwdwrkr | 4 comments »

I finally am at the end of this project. It took quite a bit longer then my initial thoughts, which was to just throw something together and call it a day. LOL. So a 5 hour project turned into 15 and I have to say that I’m glad that I took the leap. This gun turned into a cool little project and it requires a lot of different techniques. This gun was made out of 4/4 solid beech. I got to do the things I love. Turning, shaping, carving, and finishing. I had to do the cut out with a...

Never throw anything away

07-18-2009 09:23 PM by tenontim | 15 comments »

I’ve heard it at least a thousand times, and have probably said myself at least as many times, “as soon as you throw something out, you’re gonna need it.” Have you ever had one of those things laying around the shop, that is always in the way, you’ve moved it so many times it almost doesn’t look like it’s original self.Behold: The Wobble Dado Blade. I’ve had one of these so long, it’s probably a collectors item. Can’t sell it. C...

Confessions Of a Tool Addict

07-18-2009 07:10 PM by Kent Shepherd | 55 comments »

Caution, Not for the Fainthearted!—-For “Mature” Audiences Hi, My name is Kent, and I’m a tool addict ( I know, it’s cheesy and overused, but what can I say) My problem started at a very early age. The best I can remember, I was about 12 years old. My dad had a woodworking shop so naturally I was exposed to the “lifestlye” early on. It would be real easy to blame him, but now I have come to realize my own responsibility for my actions. He didn&#...

foot powered Scroll saw #6: Spring my foot

07-18-2009 05:48 PM by Tom8021 | 1 comment »

I bought a package of four springs at Home Depot. You can put a spring at the back or at the front. I tried the different sizes in different places and picked the 4” one near the front. I put it on by gluing short pieces of dowels, one to the base and the other to the bottom arm, and slipping it on. The next thing to do is drill a hole in the end of the bottom arm. I failed to mention that the hole for the blade holder is 1” in from the front end of both arms. Also, I cut ab...

Upper Deck #8: Railing Up

07-18-2009 05:35 PM by Zuki | 7 comments »

Its Saturday morning. It was forecasting for rain (which we desperately need) but it changed and we were to only get showers. So its out at the deck I go. Here I am admiring the railing. :-) Four of the five pieces up. This is the 5th piece. I hoisted each one up using my handy-dandy tie down straps. I tapped these blocks in place to ensure that all railings were a uniform distance from the flooring. Then it was off to the bracing. I removed the strap...

07-18-2009 03:35 PM by VerteramoFurniture7 | 4 comments »

Hello Everyone, This is my first blog I have ever done. When I was adding pictures to my workshop page I noticed that I did not have enough room to show more than one pic of my spray booth. In this blog I will show you my current set up. In future blogs I will talk about what I want to do to the spray booth in the future. Hopefully I will be able to post some more blogs in this series as I upgrade the booth. Ok so lets start with where it is. Our house we bought has a garage that u...

I have 117 small segments that deal with things like adjustment and fitting of various attachments for those wh...

DIY Cyclone Dust Collector

07-18-2009 06:40 AM by SimonSKL | 42 comments »

Inspired by Jeff’s (Jcoulam) homemade cyclone dust collector, I decided to make one just like his. This blog is written to show how I built it. At a local home center, I purchased one 8”x24 metal duct, a 5-ft 2” PVC pipe, a 2” PVC elbow, and two 2” couplers for about $18. The first step is to make the cone. I tried to twist the metal sheet into a cone but just couldn’t make it look right and managed to get a small cut in my hand in the process. Ou...
