Evolution of my router planer #3: Version 1.2

10-20-2010 10:31 PM by TZH | 5 comments »

Movin’ right along, here’s Version 1.2 of my router planer. Because I’d made the router sled larger in order to accommodate larger pieces, I now needed to design something bigger for the sled to ride on. That’s when I came up with the idea of using longer piping for the end poles and cross rails (instead of the 12” pipes and the plywood cross rails shown in my first design). The photo below shows my first attempt (my “beta” version) at this new des...

3 bandaids later....

10-20-2010 08:21 PM by MsDebbieP | 35 comments »

Oct. 20/10 Today I started to tackle the task of Xmas present making—some bottle stoppers. It has been a while since I’ve worked on the lathe but things were going well. I took a break to prepare dinner and while peeling some potatoes the peeler slipped and sliced the end of my finger. (no—the accident didn’t happen at the lathe.) I guess I did a pretty good job on the cut because it took 3 bandaids and elevation of the hand to get the finger to stop bleeding. (w...

Quest for a bigger TV #3: The Plan

10-20-2010 07:59 PM by JBfromMN | 1 comment »

Dad wanted to get at least a 46” flat screen in the new Entertainment Center. That meant that we had to increase the width of the opening in the center of the middle unit by about a foot. That posed a bit of an issue about how to handle the 2 doors that are located below the opening for the TV. I sat down with both of my parents and we went over the options. We could make 2 larger doors to still cover the space. We could make the doors smaller and then add 2 more to the space for a...

Quest for a bigger TV #2: The Design

10-20-2010 02:49 PM by JBfromMN | 1 comment »

Dad Said he wanted a bigger TV and to do so required a bigger Entertainment Center. He really liked the style of the one he had, but just wanted it bigger. So around Christmas of 09, when the picture was taken, we looked at what he had and what it would take to build a bigger one. We also had to evaluate the tool situation. Now I already had the Ridgid Trio from Dad’s in my Garage. The Table Saw, the Jointer and the Surface Planer. The only saw blades I had were the 40t that...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #139: I Couldn't Do This Alone

10-20-2010 01:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

There are so many different facets to having my own business as a designer. Drawing the pattern and making the prototype are just a small part of the process. Once those steps are completed, then there is the task of making the pattern packet. This includes photography and writing. It also includes laying out the pattern in a packet format. Then comes the marketing part. I need to decide whether it going to the magazine or directly to the wholesalers and for sale on my own site. If it i...

Building a Home #1: Alot to Think About

10-20-2010 07:42 AM by grainhead | 6 comments »

Living in a not so mobile, mobile home is not fun. The thing is 14’x70’ built in 76. During its age it has seen several hurricanes. During Katrina, which was not a direct hit in my area, A small tornado came through and picked up the home and snapped seventy-five percent of the hurricane straps, then set down 3 inches off. This also caused several wall studs to break. The home was still for the most part still intact, so minor repairs were made, and the foundation was left ...

Rebuilding a vintage Craftsman Table Saw 113.29920 #7: If you plan for walls and screw ups, they aren't that bad......

10-20-2010 06:43 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 2 comments »

Back when I started woodworking, I didn’t plan for mistakes, warpage, mis-measurement, illness, broken tools, mismatched sets, bad hair days and the list goes on. I had a bad habit of planning one weekend jobs that took four months to complete. (Just look at the first arcade machine) I would get frustrated and angry when things didn’t work. I guess age and being realistic help one to plan for the unforeseeable. These days, I plan on a certain number of things going wrong on a...
