My right shoulder is killing me every time I mill. What am I doing wrong?

2130 days ago by spaids | 15 comments »

I have been having pain in my right should the next day after I use my jointer. Its actually disrupting my life. Has anyone else had this sort of issue? I’m 33 years old and in decent shape. I exercise regularly by lifting weight and jogging. I don’t understand how using my 6 inch ridgid jointer leaves me in pain for extended periods of time.

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #37: Live Free....Work Wood

2130 days ago by frank | 4 comments »

Live Free….Work Wood ....jubilant art-full colors drift before my sight,shaking the leaves from off my eyes,straining this veil of flesh to come up higher,where from my mountain-top view i gladly inhale…. ....inhaling the whiffs of passing breeze,i all too soon know that i’ll be counting flakes of snow,but in the rhythms of the seasons where time stands still, i keep on working the wood after patterns of trees who came before…. ....what matters the time of day...

Holtzapffel workbench project #6: bench completed

2130 days ago by martin007 | 3 comments »

Hi all I have completed the bench, I still don’t know if I will install the veritas twin screw vise or install a wood hook, making it a holtzapffel – roubo hybrid. So I will wait for now and start using the bench as is the drawbore mortise went pretty well, No broken peg out of 12 joints (24 pegs!). I was glad to have this nice peg cutter powered by a drill and socket , it went pretty fast. All ash pegs end were whittled, then lightly sanded and then waxed. I have al...

First Weekend of Work Complete...

2130 days ago by RobH | 5 comments »

Hey all, I got to work most of the weekend on the television console. Quite a bit of progress despite my sick family and my cough. The only things I have left to do in building the carcase are to: (1) Fit the pieces for the center speaker shelf and install it, (2) Fit the piece for the cable shelf in the rear of the unit and install it, (3) Make the vent for the bottom of the unit and install it, and (4) Drill the holes in the vertical divider to allow wiring to pass from compartment to ...

Treadle Lathe #6: I'm feeling a little cranky...

2130 days ago by Texasgaloot | 6 comments »

Since my last post on the treadle lathe, I was able to get a few things accomplished; some with outstanding success, some with not-so-outstanding… um… In the last couple of weeks I haven’t really put much time in on this project, but I was able to get the tail stock cut and pared to fit snugly between the ways. I wanted a very snug fit, because I don’t want the tail stock to develop any bias in terms of turning longitudinally to the lathe. I was able to achieve a ...

Pics and more pics!

2130 days ago by TheKingInYellow | 4 comments »

As promised, pictures! I’ll warn you now, I take a lot of them :D First of all, here I am in my ‘shop’, and I use that term loosely! You can see basically all the equipment I have: Ridgid saw, Ryobi SCMS and Drill Press and a Mastercraft (Canadian Tire special) Router and Router Table. I’m pretty happy with all the equipment, but the router and table are pretty cheap. They’ll do for now. So the first big part of this project was the resawing of t...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #36: Prepping Wood and Shellac for Rain

2130 days ago by frank | 5 comments »

Prepping Wood and Shellac for Rain I do hope that all reading herein are understanding that I am writing in retrospect….as these writings are running a few days behind where I am today. My life is much too busy to be writing and testing, plus taking photos on a daily basis, so one could say that I am writing from within a time warp as I also must keep in mind that winter is coming. Winter involves putting some machines to sleep and then there is the waking up of those winter machines...
