Wine Rack Expedition #5: Glass racks

1969 days ago by Demowen | 2 comments »

Well folks, I think it was another productive day in the shop. The objective today was to get all of the parts created, but not necesarrily 100% ready for glue up or finish sanding. Misson accomplished- sort of. The first obstacle was to figure out how I wanted to join the wine glass holder rails. They are positioned horizontally (like a shelf) where all the rest of the rails to this point have been vertical (like a skirt table). I’ve been using a self-centering doweling jig fo...

Treadle Lathe workbench #3: constructing the frame from my reclaimed wood........

1969 days ago by jth2bmtsu | 1 comment »

I really prefer to build from reclaimed wood. Unfortunately, I chickened out from building the flywheel with it because of my limited access to tools. I probably would need a router and joiner which I fail to own at this time. That is one reason that I plan to paint the wheel since it will be built of new pine and not multi century old pine. Here is a peek at my reclaimed stock. Thanks to my uncle for the supply. I picked a few nice size planks and went to work on the lathe frame.Well t...

Let's play ball #1: Baseball bat

1969 days ago by Matt Vredenburg | 1 comment »

A few years ago I helped one of my nephews turn a baseball bat (visiting from Michigan). He’s now three years older and has grown out of the bat we made, however just last week, two of his younger brothers called me me a favor. They wanted me to build a custom baseball bat for each of them. As the “cool uncle”, I went right out to picked up some maple stock and turned two bats yesterday. See the picture below of the turned bats. Each of my nephews wanted there bats co...

Treadle Lathe workbench #2: so the flywheel continues....

1969 days ago by jth2bmtsu | 1 comment »

First of all, thanks so much to all that posted comments about the project. The illustration posted definitely has some components that will be similar to this project. I will be using the galvanized steel for the crank.I also want to add that for some reason the website is only showing the left part of all my pictures. Not sure why but if anyone knows how to fix it let me know. Since last post, I have been able to work two consecutive days for a few hours. Vacation time really is awesome....

A Solid Foundation to Build a Future - A New Workbench #1: building the bases

1969 days ago by bfd | 7 comments »

So my latest project is officially underway. Click Here to see the back story and details. I decide to build from the ground up so I start with the slab legs first. Here you see one end panel with the heavy duty glides attached and the 3 inner layers of Particle board. The glides are rated for either 1000 or 2000 lbs (either way they should hold!) The layers are glued and screwed together to make a particle board sandwich. I then atta...

A House Warming Gift #2: 2 + 2

1969 days ago by littlecope | 1 comment »

Two hours on Friday, and two hours I managed to squeeze in Sunday afternoon, but the work progresses! Began Sunday by transferring the pattern I fabricated onto the wood I guess most attach the patterns to the wood, to be honest, I’ve never done it that way. When I started doing these, ready access to a simple copying machine was difficult to come by. The patterns were also considered precious to me and I didn’t want to cut them up. Anyway, I’ve continued doing them right on...

my new shop #2: how dirty it was

1969 days ago by wooleywoodsmith | 0 comments »

so yesterday I spent for the most part all day turning a nasty garage into my new shop. I have 30 days to get it ready for my move. Apperently the previous tenent housed an animal in that garage, and it did his business all along one side of it. I removed all the bad sheet rock and replaced it with new. Maybe we should go back alittle. We me wifey and I live on the meger side. I spent 22 years working in kitchens, running them for most of that. Mostly private country clubs. I made re...
