My Roubo Build #11: Minimal Progress ;-)

06-03-2010 10:22 AM by naomi weiss | 8 comments »

OK, so i flipped the top and started milling the top of the bench. On Monday, i had my driving theory exam and passed! Yay! And i was near the hardware store so i popped in for some bigger bolts. Turns out they only come in 10cm (is this true?!) so i had to buy a long one—over a metre (bigger than a yard!) and cut it into pieces. Does this sound right to everyone? I kind of thought having a head on the bolt gave torque advantage…

In The Beginning #1: 40 hours until it begins

06-03-2010 10:08 AM by Crushgroovin | 5 comments »

It was all started 8 weeks ago as a way of spending more time with my sons & a desire to build a common hobby before they reach the age of rebellion. So we 3 set off on this foray into woodworking with a 20 year old duct taped circular saw, a 20+ year old jigsaw, a new (under powered) table router, & about 100 projects & about a million ideas of what we would like to do first. The first project of course was a work table/bench. That was followed by two cutting boards. These thr...

Nothing new, just everything...

06-03-2010 05:57 AM by Troy | 3 comments »

Finding a balance remains a constant challenge. What exactly is the right amount of “doing” and “talking about doing?” Social networking offers an extraordinary outlet. Doing it correctly requires a full-time assistant, unless you are lucky enough to have awesome bandwidth and a job involving a computer. Otherwise, it’s straight up work.Many of us feel like we don’t get enough time to leave all the comments we would like, or tweet all the whingeing and fact...

Lathe Centers #1: Sears Lathes

06-03-2010 05:16 AM by hvroberts | 7 comments »

This past winter I was trying to build up my tool supply for my shop. (This is Maine and my shop has no heat) I found an add for a lathe on Craigslist. It was in my old stomping grounds about 50 miles north where I spent the first 19 years of life. To make the story short, I bought the lathe. (When they ask $40. for a lathe, you don’t try to dicker the price). Upon setting this up I noticed that the head stock center looked as if it had been beaten with a hammer. I took out the Dremmel ...

Finish your finish

06-03-2010 04:04 AM by Stevinmarin | 17 comments »

Just a quickie video encouraging everyone to rub out your poly or lacquer finishes. This is really a simple method that I use all the time to get a nice, bump-free, satin finish. There are a lot of ways to rub out a finish — all the way up to a high-gloss piano finish. But this one will get ‘er done fast and you’ll be pleased with the results.

Haidyn's Crib #5 - Final Assembly

06-03-2010 03:31 AM by ND2ELK | 12 comments »

The crib is completely assembled by using connector bolts, cap nuts and cross dowels. I used the drill press as much as possible for drilling the needed holes in the smaller pieces. For the bigger assemblies, I had to make a set of jigs with drill bushings. I need to make the guard rail for the toddler bed and the bed rails with slats for the full size bed yet. This will be done after I get more wood for the 6 drawer chest. I am going to wait to finish the crib until af...

ARMOIRE- Jewelry box - using RECYCLED WOOD #2: ARMOIRE - Jewelry box using recycled wood

06-03-2010 02:35 AM by BertFlores58 | 0 comments »

PART II I suggest that you read first the first part of the series for a better understanding… The drawer In making the drawer, all the difficulties were turned to an easy task because of proactiveness. We cannot avoid changes of idea, plans, joints, size, cuts and other problems while doing the job. I don’t have blue pirnts neither actual plans in doing this project specially when you deal with recycled or scraps materials. Here you can find: undersize, grooves, dents...

Unisaw Torsion Box Fence Table #8: New Router Fence

06-03-2010 01:32 AM by Ger21 | 2 comments »

Been a little while, but I’m still working on this. I built this thing in order to get a very precise and flexible tool. So I needed a new fence to attach to my Incra Ultra. I wanted to be able to mount accessories and auxiliary fences. I went with Baltic Birch, as I have a ton of smaller pieces. I CNC’d the front and back plates, with dado’s and holes for t-nuts. T-Nuts on both sides for attaching auxiliary fences, and T-Nut’s for mounting to the Incra. Also have a...

I spent a very happy day in my workshop today….mostly I jointed, thicknessed and ripped lots of timber… Purple Heart, Silver Ash, Silky Oak…[aka Lacewood] and Tasmanian Blackwood… I used an Incra TSLS 32 to rip fine strips for accents..

It is such a pleasure to work in the new clean workshop… I moved the 3 metre machine around to make more room to play on the 2 metre machine… and moved the mitre saw… now I hav...
