Barrister Abomination #2: Top cap

08-24-2009 11:34 PM by BeachedBones | 4 comments »

Well, it’s been a couple months since I last worked on this project. I finally lucked into an old oak board that had been sitting on the rafters in a garage for a few decades. I did a quick estimate and saw it had enough wood to do the next step on my barrister abomination. It’s all pretty basic woodworking patterned on an antique. The only tricky bits are getting the fitting right in order to line up with the shelf sections.

New saw

08-24-2009 10:26 PM by kosta | 11 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I just bought a skil 10 in 15 amp table saw from lowes and it will probably be at my house by friday. It comes with a stand and I will do a table saw setup video when I get it. I compared this one to the ryobi and what really stood out was 2 things it has more power and it also has a dust port. This week I have spent about 5 hours total cleaning up the shop and I made a dust port for my miter saw basically what I did was I put a small piece of wood on the back part of th...

Spiral End Mallet #5: The Mallet Itself--Final Chapter!!!!!!!!!!!!

08-24-2009 10:17 PM by Kent Shepherd | 16 comments »

So, by now you’re asking—Mallet, what mallet? Really, there is a mallet. Amazing, I could spend 4 sessions showing you how to make a little 2” disk. The good news is, that was the Hard Part. I’m assuming if you’re going to actually make this project, you already have a lathe and know how to use it. If you depend on me to teach you to turn, we’re both in trouble. My experience is rather limited in this area.. That said, you’ll see how basic this part r...

My Wife's Classroom

08-24-2009 08:27 PM by Jay Neale III | 10 comments »

Here you can see two of my woodworking projects in my wife’s classroom. I built the Lectern and the In-Box out of birch plywood with no edge banding. She teaches 7th graders and it was decided to just use the ply, give it a small amount of style in the form of a routed edge profile where applicable, apply a durable finish and leave it at that. Seventh graders are not known for the care they lavish upon school furnishings. If the plywood gets scratched or dented I’m not going to feel bad about...

Adventures in Trace Fork #7: Forces of Nature

08-24-2009 06:31 PM by Tony | 1 comment »

Saturday was a magnificent day for a hike. I spent much of the morning slowly walking about 3 miles of creek bed. For such a small creek, there are some pretty deep holes on it, and circumventing those at times was fun. We have had an unseasonably cool and very wet summer. It has made for very nice hiking weather, but I began seeing leaves changing and falling from the trees in late June. Here’s an example: I posted a photo a couple of months ago showing where Trace Fork had c...

safety #1: stupidity in the shop

08-24-2009 06:12 PM by woodsmithshop | 24 comments »

Wed evening I was working on a project in the shop,and in a split second of stupidity, a 14”x18”x3/4” piece of plywood was caught by the blade on my table saw and thrown back at me and hit me in the gut, it was like being kicked by a mule (I would imagine that is what a mule kick would feel like), I thought I would be ok, but after about an hour I started feeling faint, from loss of blood internally, that was the most scarey feeling I have ever had, I thought, this was it, I...

My Workbench #3: Getting Close to Being Done

08-24-2009 03:12 PM by Jimi_C | 3 comments »

If I never have to cut MDF again, it will be too soon… Unfortunately I’m going to have to trim the edges of the MDF with my router, since I decided to be sloppy and clean it up that way rather than try to make perfect cuts with my circular saw (not likely). At least all the sheets are cut, so I’ll probably take these outside when I’m trimming so I don’t spend another hour vacuuming my garage. Overall, things are getting close to wrapping up, for the primary ...

Skateboard Bed #2: The Axle, Wheels, and Trucks

08-24-2009 02:12 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

I did some proportion work and decided I need 6” wheels. The wheels I found have barring that are made for a ½” axle. For the axle, I went to steel supplier and had them cut some 43” pieces for me. For the trucks I glued up some MDF to come up with a 3” thick block. I sanded down the corners at an angle just to give it some interesting lines and not just a plain cube. I have the axle and the trucks. I needed to find a why to attach them together. My original thought was to use a...
