Dedicated 45 degree mitre sled #4: Hold downs and measuring tape

08-26-2010 03:47 PM by mnorusis | 0 comments »

Just some minor details attended to for this update. First, I cut out some hold downs to use in the t-slots I cut in front of the fence (shown without the t-bolts) Then I applied the measuring tape I bought from woodcraft to the top front edge of the fence. This actually worked out very well as I can line up the part of the stop block that runs along the top side of the fence with the measuring tape. Woodcraft sells both L-to-R and R-to-L measuring tape in 6’ and 12’ l...

Every morning when I wake up my whole body hurts. Even the bottom of my feet hurt. I shuffle around the house like Sand Paper Sally. It’s no wonder my floors have no finish left on them. When I die, My tombstone will read: ” Here lies Sand Paper Sally…”

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #84: The "Magic List" is Working

08-26-2010 01:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Sometimes things go just right. After writing here yesterday, it seemed to turn out to be one of those days. I actually accomplished all that I set out to do and even though I didn’t have time to paint in the evening, I had to fight the feeling (once again) that I didn’t set my goals high enough or plan enough work for the day because I actually accomplished all of it. Maybe the “Magic List” is just doing what it is supposed to be doing – working! Is it that...

Just for Fun... #29: Sawdust Update...

08-26-2010 12:05 PM by littlecope | 12 comments »

If anyone remembers, I was working on a mobile project… something about the birds and the bees…After the bees were cut, came the birds. I went back to an old Spielman book of Scroll Saw patterns for a hummingbird pattern that I liked and had cut a number of times…The pattern wasn’t quite proportional to the bees, so with the wonders of modern technology, I shrank it down a little…After stack-cutting, I came up with these…And then the work stopped…My G...

Secrets of the String Box Revealed #2: Laminate The Strings

08-26-2010 07:42 AM by newTim | 6 comments »

I’ve prepped over thirty pictures so far so I tried to break them up into logical groups. The first part is to laminate the strings. For this box I’m using the re-saw technique and start with a thick piece of wenge (8/4) milled flat and square. I re-sawed some strips of maple and ran them through the drum sander for thickness and to remove any larger saw marks. I made a single rip cut on the wenge with a gentle random curve on the bandsaw and glued a thin strip of maple in bet...

wooden winch #4: upper frame

08-26-2010 06:56 AM by moshel | 0 comments »

well, its time to make the upper frame. I have rounded the edges of the back brace (as the anchoring rope is going to go around it), screwed it to the lower support (the pull is toward the support, so no need for structural joints) and this is what i got: I figured the pole will have to rotate on some support from belo, so i used pocket screws to add a piece of timber below it: and now all the frame is together! I have used different joints for this: to reduce friction...

Ghosts of Christmas Future #2: too

08-26-2010 05:41 AM by scottb | 2 comments »

YES! More pictures of stuff I can’t show you yet! I had a fairly productive afternoon in the shop. (Once I walked away from the lathe that just doesn’t want to stay on. Quick call to customer service, a new (Free) switch is en route, and I’ll be turning again soon…) In the meantime, I got to tackle lots of milling and project prep… and a few other things I can’t share yet. – Oh the future blog fodder and project posts! But for now, yes, I am ano...

Revamping my Delta Contractor Saw #5: Assembly Complete!

08-26-2010 05:14 AM by Mark Colan | 3 comments »

I’ve had a little time in the morning and evening to work on it, so it has gotten done a bit at a time. Completing the Assembly and Installation I had a few minor stumbling blocks. At one point I was wondering how the Base Mounting Clamp screws were ever going to get tightened. The instructions didn’t seem to say they should be. Eventually I figured out that that came a bit later – with the Base Unit in place. But I had no access to the screws… huh? The in...

08-26-2010 05:10 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

Hello All, I have finally added another chapter to the Henry Wood Saga…and I included a photo…with a tiny box in it…so it is doubly great. For those who have been following the Henry Wood Detective Agency, you will be happy to know, that I have finally figured out the rest of the story in my head, so the chapters will come more frequently now. :-) Enjoy.

Work(shop) in Progress #11: Reorganizing Single Car Garage II - Machines are Resting

08-26-2010 04:17 AM by PurpLev | 17 comments »

Hmm… I thought this step would take longer, but after ~3-4 hours of labor and some sweat I was able to do the following: reposition short-lumber rack in a 2 tier (or 4 tier) setup to utilize what was wasted space above it before, also clearing out the space for the milling machines relocate milling machines (jointer, planer, shaper) to newly created space relocate workbench to space left by milling machines relocate drill press, bandsaw, and router table to space left by work...
