"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #51: Sacred Places of Wood

07-31-2009 05:04 AM by frank | 10 comments »

Sacred Places of Wood ….herein lies the door to my soul,and where is the worker of wood’s soul to be found,but in the shop of their own making,far re-moved and off the beaten path of to-day’s clutter…. ….out here with the wood i can let imagination spread her wings,just as the lady called wisdom also dwells deep within these walls,enter in at this door and one enters a sacred place as time expires,just as in the forest of wood that so encircles me calling out my na...

turnings #3: European Olive champagne glass

07-31-2009 03:37 AM by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

Not a drinker, but I still appreciate the form of champagne glasses. I had a chunk of completely unsplit European olive from my pile of blanks, about the right length and diameter when turned to cylindrical to let me try my hand at something beyond plates and bowls, even though I’ve far from mastered them yet. I put the block between centers, turned it cylindrical, then swapped the head center for my Oneway Talon chuck, and used the tail center to support it a bit as I carved the out...

Bandsaw Box Bandit #1: My First Bandsaw Box

07-31-2009 03:35 AM by Walnut_Weasel | 11 comments »

I have recently taken the first step into becoming a serious woodworker – spending more than $500 on a single tool. I competed in and won a “biggest loser” contest at work, raking in $650! Needless to say, after all of that hard work I felt the need to spoil myself so I went out and bought a Jet 14” closed stand bandsaw. This is the first project I have started with it. It is just a simple little bandsaw box that I cut out free-hand not paying much attention to get...

Here is a project which I had been putting off until I had the cash to buy all the stock for building a complete set of kitchen cabinets. As you can see it is a somewhat simple set of shelves that will go at the end of a cabinet run on the back & side to gain roughly 78” of cabinets including a refrigerator and allow the refrigerator to be recessed about 5 ½ “ to keep the counter as flush to the refrigerator as possible. The shorter shelf will hide the side of the refrigerator and face th...

I just stumbled onto the LJ website recently while surfing the internet for bandsaw box designs. I must say, I am impressed! There are several wonderful projects that the LJ community has made. Thanks for your inspiration! Then I checked out the blog section. I am a child of one of the first computer generations. I am can find my way around a computer very well and I have said on several occasions that if it were not for Google and spellcheck, I would not be able to hold down a job! ...

Yo whats up everybody I have pretty much spent 5 hours sanding today. Usually I sand for about hour and a half and take a 30 minute break then go back out. I have already had to clean out the filter on the shop vac before I get started again and I was just asking does anybody know if the brand shop vac make bags to put in your shop vac because this thing clogges up and it takes 10 minutes to clean out the paper filter

The Ankle-biter cometh #2: He's here...

07-30-2009 06:51 PM by Webb | 6 comments »

Got my flip-top planer installed as well as the router table in the tablesaw (I’ll post pics someday). I arranged the planer in the tablesaw outfeed table (recycled desk from the aforementioned study) and spent an inordinate amount of time (and scrap plywood as spacers) getting the planer bed (roughly) level with the tablesaw so that it effectively increases the planer’s infeed length. Seems to be working out quite well and I’m rather chuffed with myself at the moment. Li...

Sqeezing more shop into small space continues.

07-30-2009 05:49 PM by dbhost | 4 comments »

If you’ve read my workshop entry, you might just gather I am crunched on space even though I am in a 2 car garage, and you’d be right. And I am trying to squeeze as much usable shop into the space I have available. Unfortunately vertical space isn’t well utilized yet, so most horizontal spaces, like the current workbench, the various tool tables, the floor etc… get covered in stuff. As I was walking from the lathe, into the house the other day I noticed something ab...
