My Steampunk Telescope #1: The pieces so far

09-24-2010 02:02 AM by TelescopeMaker | 7 comments »

I make telescopes.This is my first big one. O, so its not so big, its only 12” in diameter, and big (to me) is 20”. But its big enough for me, and something that I have wanted to do since I was a kid. It will be completely functional, and it will also (eventually) be tricked out in the Steampunk style – brass, wood, gears and fancy stuff. This is a close up of an older version of what I am making. This is what I have so far. Its held together with clamps right no...

Making Octagonal Stock from Square Stock

09-23-2010 11:34 PM by swirt | 16 comments »

Many of the tips I have read regarding starting to round a spindle on a lathe recommend starting with octagonal stock. Many of the tool handles on tools I like, have octagonal handles. So I thought I would define the simplest method I have found for making octagonal stock from square stock. Be sure you have square to begin with.Find the center of the square. Take the length from corner to center and transfer it to the side face. Set your marking gauge to that length and...

9 Dollar Workbench project #1: Part 1 - From old steel desk to nice looking work table

09-23-2010 09:34 PM by Dan | 6 comments »

I am one of those people who loves to find good deals on old tools and furniture that needs to be refinished. Restoring and refinishing furniture and homes is what got me interested in wood working to begin with. With that said I was at a re-sale shop a few weeks ago and found an old steel desk/table that they were only asking 6 dollars for. What made it stand out to me was its size. It wasn’t to large and it looked like the perfect size for a power tool stand or small work table. It al...

A journey into the workshop. #71: Working the kinks out...

09-23-2010 06:03 PM by dbhost | 4 comments »

Of my back, and my shop… I spent a little bit, honestly not very much, but a little bit of time last night doing some light cleanup in the shop. Mostly moving small cutoffs out and into the rolling trash bin, so that I can, when I am up to it, install the shelving on the proper wall and get the junk off of my benches and floor! The boat still hangs precariously from one support as my back has not been up to finishing the removal process quite yet. Close, but I don’t want to ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #112: Back to Reality (In a good way!)

09-23-2010 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I thoroughly enjoyed writing yesterday’s post and appreciate all the kind comments on it. It was fun and made the project so much more personal and meaningful to me. I like when my mind wanders like that. (and yes, it was substance-free!) and it feels good to be able to think of such enchanting existences. For me it was a mini-vacation and I thank you all for joining me. Today it is time to return to the real world, however. Last night at 7:49pm I received an email message from t...

Octagonal side table #1: Pattern Routing Challenge

09-23-2010 08:04 AM by lanwater | 5 comments »

Few months ago I built an octagonal table (not my design) and did not assemble it because I was not satisfied with the legs. I also had problems with the finish. Problem #1: The finish The Wood used is white oak and because it’s so porous I never got a flat top. I kept builling layer of polyuratane but that did not work. I Sanded off the finish. I then put on 1 layer, leave it to dry, sand it down but not completely. Put the second and the third following the same procedur...
