Secret Soss: A simple Soss hinge jig #3: Steps to success

09-05-2010 07:48 AM by newTim | 0 comments »

Like most things it takes much longer to explain a process than it does to complete. Still, there are a lot of steps involved, and while you can sometimes change to order chances are there are no shortcuts, especially when precision is the final goal. Well enough philosophy, how ‘bout we just do woodworking. At this point the jig is maybe a half hour from being functional. Here I trimmed one side of each template to about 1 3/4” from the centerline of the mortise. You may w...

Early Anniversary gift

09-05-2010 05:52 AM by Rustic | 20 comments »

Well my loving wife has gone and done it again…She has given me the best anniversary gift a woodworker could hope for, a intro to woodcarving class. It starts next Wed. at Woodcraft. The class is 4 hours long. I am totally geeked about it. I am going to have a blast. I just know it. I have a source for my carving tools and a source for my sharpening system until I can afford the more powerful sharpening and honing system. This month on the 23rd is our 10th anniversary. Now I just need t...

Who Cares ?

09-05-2010 05:04 AM by Doug Scott | 8 comments »

Whats going on in a selfemployed guys life that spends most of the day eather working in the shop or for the shop, I couln’t tell you how many people ask how to get started in their own business, what is it that everyone has a misconception of being selfemployed, It is NOT a 9:00 to 5:00 job. Everyone that asked me about it, I just ask them if they would follow around for a week or more they might change their mind about it. A few years ago I had a young guy asking to see my portfolo. a...

Extremely Average #243: Gappy the Dado Jig

09-05-2010 04:54 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

Hello All, I busted out an old friend, the Dado Jig. I created him way back in the first couple of months I was doing woodworking. He didn’t have a name until today. I also received a very nice comment from the gentleman who commissioned Henry the tiny walnut box. It was a good day. http://su.pr/1FkGoX Brian

A journey into the workshop. #67: The flimsy shelves are GONE... And I HURT...

09-05-2010 04:44 AM by dbhost | 7 comments »

Well, I managed to pull my stacks of old construction grade 2x material, and BORG S4S pine and oak out, not to mention the stacks of cedar, and other misc sawdust waiting to be made. I also yanked out probably a quarter of a yard of various plywood, pine, and other misc cutoffs… And when I finally got to the wall, I managed to pull what little remained of the material that was on them, and removed the bad shelving units (woo hoo!). I have taken the drill press, and band saw and mo...

"Fold up" ironing board (reverse engineering) #4: Other important details

09-05-2010 04:23 AM by jeff_wenz | 5 comments »

So some important details I have not mentioned yet. The routed groove: There is 2 ½” inches from the front of the case to the groove. The top of the groove bends in ½” Heat Shields:Use aluminum for protection. I purchased a 24×6” piece and cut it in half. I sprayed it with white epoxy appliance spray paint then mounted it with 3M’s Super 77 spray adhesive. Shelf:Install in coordination with your heat shields. This put my shelf 12” down from the top. Electrical...

Work(shop) in Progress #12: reorganizing Single Car Garage III - Give or Take a Few

09-05-2010 03:58 AM by PurpLev | 12 comments »

Had some good progress on the garage reorganization, Although it may not look like it. To start, I wanted to tackle all the medium sized lumber that was now roaming around, scattered on the floor in various locations as it no longer had a dedicated place. I had 4 kitchen cabinets that I got off of craigslist a couple of years ago hoping it’ll help me get organized, but in the end, it just took wall space, and didn’t prove to be very useful, as it was just left as is, and ended ...
