Drum Sander Surgery

05-08-2010 04:57 AM by closetguy | 5 comments »

There quite a few Jocks on here that have the Jet/Performax drum sanders. I bought my 16-32 about two years ago and don’t know how I survived before it. It runs just about every day for hours. About 6 months ago it started making a strange noise, like a quick clunking sound, when I turned it on. The smooth sound when running a piece of wood through it slowly changed to chatter and I noticed a slight snipe on each board that I had never experienced before. This went on for a couple months...

Just fooling around with scrap wood. This project is really about testing the accuracy of your cuts. Plus the puzzle is actually kind of hard to solve!

Asian Arts & Crafts Night Stand #1: Catching up...

05-08-2010 12:14 AM by azwoodman | 9 comments »

So I’ve been working on this project since January. Its been a really fun and very educational experience. There have been lots of “firsts.” This semester I have been taking a Woodworking Class at my local community college. Although the class isn’t really geared toward any particular set of woodworking skills it has given me an opportunity to build a project under the supervision of a more “seasoned” woodworker. When the class began we were instruct...

jewelry chest #2: adding legs and top to chest

05-07-2010 11:34 PM by Kate | 2 comments »

My first blog entry showed the first step in rehabilitating an old chest. You can see step one here: My next step was to add some feet to the case to get it off the ground and add some visual interest. Then I started working on the top. I made a straightforward cherry and walnut top. It was so-so. Then one of my students made a great suggestion and presto, the curved top was born (thanks to Ellen K. for her design ideas). Next I added ...

Workshop Development #1: Background and history lesson. Welcome to the Wayback Machine!

05-07-2010 08:16 PM by dbhost | 8 comments »

This entry, the first in the series Workshop Development.” is where we get into the wayback machine, and go for a little history lesson. Specifically, how, and why I went from a guy with a garage and some tools, to being a guy with a workshop in progress. Not sure if I will ever be done, but at least it is in progress! In the beginning there was a garage, Dave saw the garage and said it was good… Hmmm okay maybe a little to grandiose for my posting… Let me try again…...

A personal challenge - The make #3: Day 3

05-07-2010 06:18 PM by BritBoxmaker | 14 comments »

Hello againWell having retrieved the missing piece of SycamoreI discovered that the saw must have chewed it a bit before it spat it out. Only 34mm on a 70mm piece intact. I decided a partial repair was in order and set about it with my ‘Glue of Choice’ for the project. Its a Cyanoacrylate based glue for porous surfaces. Hell you most likely know of it, its probably American. Comes in a 1oz bottle.This was the result.Over 50mm of usable wood.I had a slight change of mind on the des...

A Home of Generations

05-07-2010 05:55 PM by Troy | 4 comments »

In the early 1900’s, a quirky woman from the Yukon Territory required that her suitor provide her a “dream home” if he had hopes of relocating her to Fairbanks, Alaska. That was all the motivation Author Williams needed to order a catalog kit home for his love, Lucille. He ordered it from the west coast and a sternwheeler delivered it to Fairbanks in 1916. The home’s earliest distinctions include the first oak floors and stone masonry fireplace in the city. Since then, the home endured nearly...

The Wine Rack #4: First steps: Board prep and cutout templates

05-07-2010 05:10 PM by Todd Clare | 5 comments »

I had a lot of work, home stuff, and travel to distract me from the project recently, but after discovering my neighbor in the house behind was a woodworker and also a lumberjock, I was inspired to do some work last night. I figured out my cutting plan, and cut the board to the rough chunks that I’ll rip into individual pieces hopefully tonight or during the weekend. If my measurements are correct, I should be able to eliminate the sapwood with some creative layout of the parts. ...
