From Queensland Austalia, over 9000 miles in about 7 weeks on an ocean freighter, the Torque WorkCentres have arrived at my home in Connecticut. I have been pacing the shop the whole time, waiting anxiously for it’s arrival, imagining and dreaming about projects I can do with this machine.Yesterday afternoon the tractor trailer pulled up to the end of my 600 ft long driveway and the driver unloaded all 880 lbs of two machines. He was kind and escorted the boxes to my shop front on the p...
Episode 72 Book Ends part 2 from kostas workshop on Vimeo.In this episode I cut the rabbet that holds the top and bottom piece together. Then I glue up the book ends. I sand all the parts to 220 then stain them. http://www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com/
What’s happening in the shop for July 2, 2010. Doing some detail work on Blake’s murphy bed, bookcases, and desk. Starting a Batman Bed. Check out the crown cap on the Current Projects page and in the video. If there is any interest I’ll talk more about it. For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. Watch us live:
As those of you who read this regularly know, yesterday left off with me anxiously waiting for that magic ‘decent’ hour to roll along so that I could get at cutting out my new project. After writing, I did all my morning chores and prepared the wood which I was going to use. I found a beautiful piece of ash that I really liked. Some people don’t like ash because of the difficulties it can present when scrolling. It is sometimes subject to breaking, as the grain can go pre...
So I came home from work one day to find the February 2008 copy of Woodworker’s Journal out on the kitchen table with a post-it-note on it that said, “Make me one of these except with dolphins.” The article was about a bandsawn box with a ying-yang design. My wife saw that it was made with a bandsaw and wanted me to make it because she’s still mad at me for buying the band saw and not telling her until afterward. Now I announce to her every time I use it so that she...
I’m building a cupola to go on the top of my greenhouse to aid in ventilation. I really like the plans I found at http://www.familyhandyman.com/DIY-Projects/Indoor-Projects/Attics/Attic-Ventilation/how-to-build-a-cupola. If you want to read a little bit of humor about my cupola, click on the picture. Has anyone had any experience in covering the roof of a cupola with copper or aluminum sheeting? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Hello All, Tonight I continued on my quest to build a tiny box. This probably seems like a trival matter to the seasoned folks here at LJ, but for a novice, it can be a bit challenging. My first two attempts ended with slight misalignment. So I am into my 3rd shot and having learned from the 1st two, seem to be doing better. I am almost up to the point where I went awry last time and I think the wood is in better shape and should be ok after I cut the pieces. http://bit.ly/9sbeJ7 ...

I was getting the shipping gunk off of my OSS (had it two years and never used it) using some Naphtha and a rag. It was going well, and I remembered hearing that Naphtha was good at cleaning planer rollers, so I figured it should be good for any of those foam grippy things we have around the shop. So a quick wipe of my jointer push blocks and my Grripper and they are all like new again. It was amazing how much extra grip was lost from a thin coating of dust. So I’m leaving the N...
