I was bored

08-11-2010 01:16 PM by Flemming | 5 comments »

i’ve been rather restless as of late… maybe its the a.d.d. :P… anyway, as is in the title, i was quite bored and needed something to do. my next project is slowly beginning to take shape in my mind and i’ve settled upon a serving tray with some marquetry and until the “final” plan (plans always change) has been made i wanted to do something small in the meantime. I’ve been absolutely fascinated by the rings i’ve seen on LJ’s, not least ...

Workshop Build #23: The Front Porch

08-11-2010 05:42 AM by ~Julie~ | 8 comments »

Here is a sketch I made a few years ago before the building of our workshop/garage: Now, how to get that front porch on there? We had two large cement post holders put 13 feet apart when we did the garage pour. These have saddles set into them to hold 6” x 6” posts. We wanted the porch roof to have the same slope as the whole roof, so we had to figure out the length the posts would need to be to make the roof come at the right location above the door and light. We...

Could anyone tell me what this old tool is ?It is shaped like a drawknive. It has no cutting edge. The handles are spaced about 10 inches apart. I think it is used to shape logs for log homes.

What is your Favorite Tool?

08-11-2010 03:46 AM by Chefdavid | 17 comments »

Was working today in my workshop and I began to wonder what my favorite tool that I own/use. I began to wonder, I enjoy all of my tools, some more than others. I focused on my newest tool, my planer. I like it and the things that is allows me to do, but it is not my favorite tool. Than I began to think about my skill saw and how much I use it and what I use it for. Still not my favorite tool. Well as I was standing in the middle of my workshop I noticed what I was leaning on. My Jawhors...

The New Workbench Journey #7: A Little Re-Do

08-11-2010 12:11 AM by DrJosh | 1 comment »

When I decided that I wanted to build myself a workbench, I realized that this was going to be my first real big project and as such it would be a major learning process. That said, learning is a good thing, but realizing that I screwed something up and I needed to re-do a part was very frustrating. OK, so I’ve learned a ton about the process of milling and squaring rough and construction grade lumber. I’ve learning a fair amount about using project design and using Google Sketchu...

Back in Feb, 2009, after arriving for the first part of my summer holidays, I was wondering for the birthday gift for my 3rd. son, Francisco. All of them are very keen of chess, we have a lot of plastic, Chinese made sets. So I decided it was time to purchase a heirloom chessboard set. I goggled in Buenos Aires city for chessboards, but didn’t find any that drew my attention up.So I goggled worldwide. A lot of Stauton house, fancy sets, etc. But it cropped out an occurence in Youtube : B...

Wood turning tools used for the Salt and Pepper Mills

08-10-2010 09:47 PM by Bob Simmons | 1 comment »

This is in response to a viewer, Helluvawreck who had questions concerning what turning tools were used during the video of the Salt and Pepper Mills. Thoughts:1. Turning salt and pepper mills is essentially spindle turning.2. Due to the length of your wood lathe you may need to bore out on your larger lathe, the drill press, or carefully by hand. However, you may be very well able to bore out on your Jet lathe.3. You can start out with this wood project and you will do fine. Suggestion...
