Revamping my Delta Contractor Saw #3: Prep and Tune-up

08-23-2010 04:01 PM by Mark Colan | 4 comments »

The new fence has been sitting in its boxes since it arrived Wednesday. I promised myself and my wife that I would get to a certain stopping point in the current project – a kitchen pantry extension in the basement – before starting the next. The basic structure (a closet and a wall along a 100-year-old stone and block wall) was up, but it needed to be painted. Some trimming out, and a couple days to paint it, has taken my spare time in the past few days. While paint was dry...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #81: Implementing Some Good Advice

08-23-2010 12:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Things seem to be getting back to normal. The toaster is back to popping and at precisely 6:08 this morning I popped out of bed like normal. It was still quite dark out (as it will be from now on in the mornings I assume) but I was pleased that I seemed to be back on schedule. I never was one for an alarm clock, and I only used one at times when I absolutely, positively needed to get up by a certain time. When I worked outside the home or needed to get the kids to school I used one, but ...

wooden winch #2: the pole

08-23-2010 10:21 AM by moshel | 6 comments »

I have to apologize for not taking pictures while building it – thought about it only later. there are some photos of the end of this stage at the bottom of the page. So, I looked at my timber rack and found that the only reasonably sound “beam” I had is 3×4. However, it was a wonderfully dense heart Rimu. So, I denailed it (hard work – its from recycled buildings and taking out these 3 3/4” nails out of it is really hard) milled it to just under 3×3...

wooden winch #1: background

08-23-2010 09:14 AM by moshel | 10 comments »

As you all know, Steve (daltxguy) is hosting some LJ’s for the weekend and will be using us as cheap slave labour to help him move a 6 Ton log of red beech that managed to get itself in the most inappropriate place. as we can’t just cut the forest and we have no hydraulics, we need to go back in time and find how people did this kind of things 1000s of years ago. After ruling out some great ideas (enslaving Australia, Importing elephants, using horses), we resorted to leverage....

Dedicated 45 degree mitre sled #1: Intro

08-23-2010 04:31 AM by mnorusis | 5 comments »

Since I now have a “real” table saw (thanks Timbo!) and my current project is going to call for a mitred “frame”, I decided now is a great time for a 45 degree mitre sled. Thanks to RKW's mitre sled project (and thanks to RKW for answering my additional questions), I have a pretty good idea of what I’m going to do. Some info and decisions:1) I enjoy working with tools that look as nice as the projects I work on, so I’ll use leftover “nice” w...

Grandson in the shop

08-23-2010 04:29 AM by wichle | 3 comments »

I thought that I would be taking care of something on my shop do list tonight. Think again! The grandson started a book case last summer. With camps, trips, soccer games and school finding time to finish thie project was hard. At dinner tonight his dad announced that Monday was the day! So tonight I had to make sure the stock for the trim was ready, we had shellac, and whatever. Pictures will follow. Also now have a set of pictures of my shop and will finish a narrative, hopefully to...

Potato cannon carriage #6: Some tweaks and the test firing

08-23-2010 01:14 AM by JJohnston | 29 comments »

I made a few little improvements this week while I’m finishing the forward armor. I redesigned the forward ramrod tube bracket. It’s as minimal as I could get it – a 3/4” piece of poplar, cut to fit between the tubes, and a hose clamp. This lightens up the front end, both visually and literally. I also reattached the cap chain with a ziptie right behind the cap, which shortens/cleans it up. A shot of green paint and everything looks fine. I had a vision of ki...
