Tips #2: Sharp Enough

01-14-2009 07:54 PM by drknoxy | 4 comments »

So 1/2” thick glass is like 30$, and the 1/8” glass they sell at home depot and lowes cracks real easily (personal experience), but MDF with laminate on all sides is 6$. I gave it a quick test run for lapping the soles of my #5, #4 stanley planes last night and it worked wonders. I think I have to pick up a different kind of spray adhesive though, the one I’m using leaves me sticky but not the paper… it is just normal sandpaper, the wet or dry is expensive and only ...

Secret Bookends

01-14-2009 06:58 PM by KnickKnack | 3 comments »

Some thoughts on secret compartments can be found in another blog I wrote on a rainy day (spoiler alert – of no educational value). Just some pics during work… Router out what’s going to be the hidden compartment… Once it’s glued together, router out the sliding dovetail – not easy with no router table, but this is what i came up with… Cut the other half of the dovetail in what’s going to be the base… As always, ...

Kitchen

01-14-2009 03:46 PM by Moron | 2 comments »

A lot of the work I do is for “others” being contractors or other cabinet shops, then they come get it and most often put the finish on. One particular client gives me about 50% of all the work I do and I am quite sure that he would give me 100% of the work I do but I think its bad Karma to have all your work come from one hand. This kitchen is perhaps the biggest to date. Hindsight is 20/20 and right now I am wishing that I had made all the kickplates and put them all on cas...

Street musical organ restoration #1: Restoration of a water gilded surface

01-14-2009 12:56 PM by goldenhands | 17 comments »

Here is my blog for you guys.There is one element I took as an example. Absolutely the same procedure with all 33 elements and 4 large parts of the Organ. The size of this element is about 600×600 mm. Well must mention that a microscopic analysis has been taken in order to identify all the materials and layers.So now I got the full picture of how and what needed to be done.First of all the old gesso must be cleaned of (using warm water). Why because it won’t work with a newl...

The Non-Electric Chair #11: Breaking out the Beech (part 1)

01-14-2009 12:48 PM by lethentymill | 2 comments »

The timber is still moist to the touch and heavy, probably about 28% moisture, but it will be easier to cut in this condition and will dry quickly with a smaller cross-section. It is time to rough-cut the components. You may remember that I have already selected and prepared pieces for the main members – the back legs. All this hand-work makes you think of efficiency in a way that you may never have thought of it before. If you have ever cycled around the countryside and taken a wrong t...

Rockin' Ride #3: Router Work

01-14-2009 06:04 AM by kshipp | 2 comments »

Refers to project posted here. I started this project out with the SketchUp design so I printed full-size templates to make my pieces. My original idea was to use 1/4” hard board as a pattern for a pattern trimming bit. I cut out the hardboard on the scroll saw and then cleaned them up with my spindle sander. I tried to use the pattern bit on a practice dog dish stand with some leftover wood and didn’t have good results. I think my pattern bit is probably not the hig...

Rockin' Ride #2: Comments and Suggestions

01-14-2009 02:51 AM by kshipp | 0 comments »

Refers to project posted here. After my initial blog post I got some good suggestions and questions in the comments so I thought I would address those in a blog here. LesB said he thought the rear leg would need more bracing. My dad and I were discussing what we thought the weak point would be and we both also thought it would be the rear leg. I’m using the Kreg Pocket Screw system to assemble this piece and I have four screws from the leg to the seat and two screws from the cross...
