Shop Skills #5: Using Toner to Add or Change Color

09-13-2009 05:32 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 35 comments »

Sorry for the False Start Guys… I had the privacy setting turned on when I posted to YouTube. (D’oh!) It’s Finally Here! Whew! It takes a lot of work to shoot a video, edit, and get it posted to the internet. I am still struggling with posting to the internet. My HD file sizes are too big to be accepted by BlipTv and YouTube, and once I get the size down to an acceptable limit, they lose quite a bit of quality. This is a bit frustrating and makes me sad to see al...

Warriors of Wood ….i have travailed the road that others could not see,and while on this road i carried pictures inside my head,where none could side-track me from my dreams of wood,just as wood and i have learned to deal with our times of age…. ….still working wood just as the wood works me in style,my character has many times been planed by the hand of wood,till even now there is the gnawing pain that pushes me faster,much to do as still counting the opportunities of project...

Restoration #2: Antique electrolysis report 2 (with photos)

09-13-2009 06:43 AM by kennethw | 7 comments »

Hey folks! I finally have some photos to share. I will document the process in a coherent way once this stuff is taken care of. I’m currently de-rusting bits of the old jack plane. Here are a few examples of the process and results: A rusty chisel, after a very quick dip in the electrolyte (I had neglected to get a photo first): I’m feeding a small electronics power supply (5V) into these components to clean up the juice a bit, and then pass it through a variable resi...

Morris Chairs #6: Update for the last few days

09-13-2009 05:03 AM by Dave T | 1 comment »

Since my last post I’ve gotten a couple of maintenance tasks accomplished. A crude, but temporarily functional router table was tuned up (made sure flat and insert plate was level) and sharpened a couple of my chisels. Thursday, I got the router table clamped to the table saw and flush trimmed the leg veneers. Here’s my temporary router table. Eventually I am going to build Norm’s router table, but in the meantime…Next I cut all the front leg blanks to final size.N...

Step-back Cupboard Build #18: Cupboard backboards

09-13-2009 01:19 AM by rwyoung | 4 comments »

After a burger and fries for lunch I decided to keep working on the cupboard. The knob and latch needs a turning billet so I can go to the lathe and make chips. And the back boards need milling and rabbets. So while the glue up for the billet dries, its time to make shavings. The back of the cupboard will be 1/2” boards of slightly varying widths. The boards will be ship-lapped and rest in a rabbet on the back of the case. Cut nails along the top, bottom and the fixed shelf will...

In Bath, Michigan I visited a beautiful operation that has a ton of wood. The owners name is Kelvin and you couldn’t meet a better person. He had bunks of Oak-Red and White, Maple, Ash, Walnut, Cherry, Elm, and even some Crab Apple. He had burls for turners and also other wood for turners. He has air dried and kiln dried lumber in various sizes. His ad says he doesn’t ship, but he says he does. Fed Ex. You can go on Craigslist and find his ad. Go to Michigan, then Lansing area, an...

After 5 months of not woodworking i am finaly back at it. The first words my Fiance said to me were “Thank god you have your shop back. Maybey now you wont be such an ass” Aparently i was driving her crazy. 5 months ago my craftsman tablesaw broke on me. Its an extremley long story. I will just say that when sears could not fix the saw they refused to replace it. Even though i had purchased the factory extended waranty I was told that i needed 5 or more cervice calls in order for ...
