Drum Sander #7: Stuck on Yew

05-20-2010 06:14 PM by BritBoxmaker | 24 comments »

I bet you’re all thinking “That darned fool has forgot to cut the little circular dents in the guide rails for when the drum is close to the table”, aren’t you?Well I haven’t, so there. Here’s how I do it. Now the drum is a nice cylinder I attach two 1” strips of 60 grit to the ends using double sided tape.Then I wind the table up, slowly, to cut them, soThe 60 grit and tape is then removed. I then applied the adhesive backed velcro ( 4” wide st...

Roubo Workbench #8: Sketch of Bench

05-20-2010 04:44 PM by Eric | 4 comments »

(click on the pic for a full-size view) So here’s the bench mostly as I see it. My apologies for the faintness, but I think you get the idea. I forgot to put the crochet on there, so that would naturally be on the front left of the benchtop. You’ll also notice that I have no vises on the bench. I’m not entirely convinced that the bench needs them, although I do plan on making a removable twin-screw vise à la Moxon (not pictured). I had planned on installing a wagon vis...

The Garage of Chaos #1: Getting started

05-20-2010 03:40 PM by Stevezilla | 9 comments »

I have it on good authority that my ancestors were woodworkers. I learned this just recently, which is strange because I have always had a strange desire to work with wood, even when I was little. At any rate, I hope their skills were passed down genetically. Before I tackle things like building a new deck or putting up crown molding, or building a bird house (hey, I’m NEW at this) I think I need to get the garage under control. For some reason, the garage has become a default storag...

Roubo Workbench #7: Could It Be?

05-20-2010 03:05 PM by Eric | 4 comments »

I recently found out that the husband of a woman in our church runs a timber export business. I inquired about possibly getting my workbench lumber from him and she told me to fax her the specs of what I want (she does admin or accounting or something). So tomorrow morning I’m going out with her to the lumberyard to check out the wood and to get an estimate. Could it be that I’ll walk out of there with a few hundred pounds of tropical hardwood? Or maybe I’ll put it in the...

random #35: birch... juice?

05-20-2010 12:06 PM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

I guess I have heard of birch beer, but not just drinking straight sap from birch trees. It looks like locally I could get some through Izze, though it says “Made with real fruit juice concentrates, other natural flavors and nothing artificial.” It doesn’t say “100% birch sap” like I’d expect, and like Adamba serves up – “Ingredients – Pure Birch Juice.” Maybe I can just go lick some baltic birch ply in the garage. I...

Curly koa

05-20-2010 06:38 AM by thatwoodworkingguy | 3 comments »

I recently received a piece of curly koa I ordered in the mailUpon opening it i realized this is one of the most figured woods I had ever held in my hands.The curls and the variations in color tones was incredible. The most spectacular I have ever seen! I honestly did not want to cut into this piece.A few hours later I went out for errands and stopped at borders to get a coffee and see if there were any new woodworking magazines I didnt have. I took a walk through the woodworking book section...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #18: A Little Progress...

05-20-2010 05:55 AM by CaptainSkully | 2 comments »

I finally had a day off, so I chopped up the messed up lock-mitered legs by setting the blade right up against the fence at a 45 degree angle. I was able to push the legs through with the help of a featherboard to be as safe as possible. I chopped a bit off each side, but I think the next version will be much better, even if they’re up to 1/2” smaller on each face. I started to run the freshly liberated faces through the table saw to reestablish fresh mitered edges to prepare f...
