Turning Tool Bevel Angles

06-15-2018 07:57 PM by Wildwood | 2 comments »

Talk about turning tools, use & bevel angles came up on another message board. Post this link because reminded me of article from Woodturning Design 2007 issue no longer on line. Dale Nish got lot of information which many new woodturners migh find interesting. Still cannot post the rest of his article . The illustrations on pages 10 thru 13 where Allan Batty talks about bowl design and bevel angles. Allan an English turner English size bowl gouges which are 1/8” larger than U.S. made...

Still sore today, decided to try to get something done Like a few bevels?The other end grain bevel was done like the first one….also used a different #4.. A #4c model….Made in England.. Cuts a might deeper than the other Stanley #4 I have….Used the Millers Falls to get things close, then the final work done with the #4. Ok, ends are done, next was the long sides… This time, it was more of holding the plane at a”skew” and going along un...

Toy Construction #210: Ford van #2 Playing with some wheels

06-14-2018 11:21 PM by htl | 10 comments »

I LOVE to make wheels I don’t know why but this is the one place I can have some fun. My spoke wheel making blog is here but I went just a tad different to get the model A look. Since I’m building the 1929 ford van I’m trying for some Model A Wheels.They should look like this. Well here’s what I came up with today with a little trial and error.Now if I can just make four that are close to the same.I’ve all ways had trouble getting things marked up and I ...

Coughing jag last night, pulled a few things under the right shoulder blade…..might be a little limited today… Kept the size of the planes small…nothing bigger than a jack plane… Leg blanks were a mixed lot….needed planed to remove the saw marks, and try to get them all the same size…around 1” square. Beltsanding center to smooth the curved sections….finally got all four to match each other.. Not perfect, but they will do….even ...

Furniture: Cane Vs Wicker, Which One Is The Best When It Comes To A New Garden?

06-13-2018 02:07 PM by paulmatthews | 0 comments »

Given my big passion for DIY and design, renovating my garden when summer comes has always been a dream of mine even if sometimes I’m debating about which type of furniture should fit my outdoor living space. Last year I tried to combine the minimalistic design of wicker furniture with glass elements and it worked. This year, cane furniture will eventually win but I’m also debated on using wicker furniture once again. Wicker Furniture Creating wicker furniture is not that ea...

From cut-offs to.... #1: Legs

Ok, everyone has a bin for cut-offs and other scraps….never really find a use for them, right? From the Bed Frame Project…I was left with a lot of little pieces,,,and a bunch of shavings…most went out to the burn pit, to smoke away the skeeters…..I was left with these three things, way too big to burn.. 2×10 x 18” and one a tad longer. Was big enough, I had to clean the bench completely off… Amazing how fast a tool well fills up…I even...

Shop stuff #126: Fixing up my wind chimes.

06-13-2018 12:27 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

A couple of years ago my favourite set of wind chimes bit the dust. I grabbed some pressure treated fence boards I re claimed and with that, a bit of good string, a few knots and time I brought them back in a video titled “The one where I show my Ding Dong”....that’s not too much into click bait territory is it?

Pole Barn Workshop Remodel #5: Small Steps Forward

06-12-2018 04:03 PM by PoohBaah | 12 comments »

There has been slow but somewhat steady progress the last two weeks in the barn. I have been able to allot a couple hours each week to try and work on the daunting task of trash removal and demolition. It took 3 separate sessions but I have finally gotten the old feed bunk removed. You can see from previous posts the strides that have been made. It is really starting to open up the space. There is still a lot of debris, dust and garbage to clean up but all these small steps are startin...
