Bandings #1: Diamond bandings

04-02-2009 06:10 PM by TheCaver | 11 comments »

I posted this in the forum but some ppl don’t go in there…..If you do, sorry for the repetition….. Ok, so I gathered some ideas on how to make diamond banding (example below) Note grain directions: I made a lot of drawings and cut paper shapes to help me visualize the cut process, one of them being TT’s idea in the previous thread. This method although it produced the diamond pattern, it was well over 75% waste and grain direction was wrong compared to the com...

Gout

04-02-2009 05:49 PM by ND2ELK | 34 comments »

Hi Fellow Lumberjocks I have been laid up now for two weeks with gout in the left foot. Never had it in my life. I would not wish this on anybody. Well maybe one or two. I have had pain in my life before but never for so long of a period. My wife kids me, that a real man would drag it behind him, NOT! Everytime I lift up my foot or straighten it out when I sit down after standing or walking it takes my breath away. Been seeing the doctor for the past two week and go back tomorrow. My wife ...

I made it so far

04-02-2009 03:23 PM by jockmike2 | 32 comments »

Just a note of Thanks for all the prayers and well wishers (I read Karsons blog) my goodness it was great to get such support. This is really the first day I’ve felt like sitting up and typing anything. I have sneaked a peek or two with my wife’s lap top but dang I hate those things. Anyway I can’t say I’m cancer free, I won’t know that until I go back to my Dr. on Mon. the 6th. But he told my family he was confident he got it all, and the Lymph nodes looked good...

Wine Rack Expedition #7: The end in sight... yet...

04-02-2009 07:16 AM by Demowen | 4 comments »

Well Folks, I did what I could today. It was a long day of work and hospital visits so shop time was certainly limited to a few hours late into the night. I left a bit of a glue mess on my back assembly last night so I paid the price for it today.Now, that picture was just to show the assembly without clamps, but this one should be better…and some more….I had a few pictures of my lady checking my sanding job but they all were too blurry. She walked around it and made sure I d...

Tool thoughts #16: New fangled bench part II

04-02-2009 04:49 AM by NedB | 5 comments »

I’ve got most of the dimensional lumber cut to length now, as well as the pipes on hand, and the clamps. I’ve decided to make something of a traditional bench on one end however. I have been gathering tools for several years and I scored a very nice old Morgan model 100A quick release vise off of craigslist last a couple of years ago: the vice on the left is a different model which I had for a friend of mine, neither one of us have installed them yet. Speaking of whi...

Let's play ball #2: Painting bats is completed

04-01-2009 08:32 AM by Matt Vredenburg | 1 comment »

Here are the bats after applying four light coats of paint (from a can so sprayed). From Baseball Project I wanted the red bat to have a consistent color for the handle so mixed up a red dye and applied it like a stain. I don’t like the look right now, but when we have a few clear coat finish and black or white baseball tape on the handle – it’s going to look awesome! Believe me Mitch. For the black bat (Sean’s), I am going with a natural maple handle that wil...
