Hello All, After taking a break from woodworking last night, I got back at it with vim and no small measure of vigor. I chose to talk about woodworking in tonight’s woodworking blog post, something that has been a bit rare this week. So I made a bit of progress and made it past the point of my previous blunder. Brian I am also testing out Digg. So this is a Digg link. This means you have the ability, if you like the post, to ‘Digg’ it. I am not suggesting that ...
I cut a lot of small parts in my segmented bowl making. Lots of these cuts are made at blade angles other than 0 degrees. Operating with a zero clearance insert is desirable but the variety of blade angles makes using one difficult. I would need a bunch. I use a lot of packing tape to hold small parts while gluing and the other day it occurred to me to stretch a thickness or two of the tape over the blade slot with the blade down and then lift the blade to cut through the tape and leave i...
Finally after 3 years of dealing with moving buckets and planning my schedule around the weather forecasts, I’ll be able to have a new roof installed on both of my old buildings. They started today on the Lyric Theater building which I use main for storage at the moment. It was interesting to see what they uncovered when they pealed back the old roof, which has been in place since 1980. We discovered two old Coke a Cola can’s from 1980 with the LA Olympics logo and a real pull...
im not really shure how many riders are out there but for these guys, any of you think this is a good deal? the MSRP is around 6 to 7.http://www.parkcycle.com/new_vehicle_detail.asp?sid=06888086X4K29K2010J6I11I36JPMQ3489R0&veh=53870&pov=1538674
Got some floors painted, and moved some pictures from storage and hung them up out of the way in the shop. Hoping to get another coat of paint down this weekend, and get started back with finishing the wiring. Once the wiring is done, I can start work on setting up the sawmill.
Just saw this on instructibles website, smallest shop, looks like a cool and well organized set up for not having allot of space. Love the router lift.
With the majority of the construction complete, we move on to doing some of the finishing on the outside of the hull. The hull as it stands is pretty rough, there’s a lot of squeeze-out of the poly-glue that we used on the strips, rough edges to the strips, slight tearout around the areas where the staples were. I have to confess, I don’t look forward to the sanding process for any project, but once resolved to the idea, I find it a calming zen-like process. The sanding was...
All that is left to do is lacquering
During the design process lasted 6 generations of sketchup designs. The final model (which doesn’t include some decorative details and is 10cm taller than the final build) is now available online. Google Warehouse
building a simple computer table that will house a laptop. The design calls for a wide base and the ability to pull the laptop closer. I’ve used the wide base to have two different surfaces. The left side slides on 12” drawer slides and is slanted for easy viewing and typing on a laptop. The right side is fixed for papers, etc. The entire piece will be made out of Baltic Birch (or Russian Birch). The final piece will be painted, so the end grain should match (well enou...
