Cherry finger jointed box #2: A little bit more done...

08-21-2016 04:15 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Before the storms came through. Shop is closed down, due to a creek running across the floor. Floor drain working good, just was a LOT of rain outside. Had to stop for supper, anyway. Sooo, what all DID I get done? Well, I hauled the Stanley #45 down the stairs,and even brought along that new bottle of glue. Marked out for more finger joints, as I had two more corners to do. Hands were sore from all the handsaw work, so I used the bandsaw instead.. Then clamp it to the ben...

Workshop 2016 #5: Feelin the flow

08-21-2016 04:00 AM by Ty Sullivan | 0 comments »

Believe it or not I’ve survived these past nearly six months in the new space with only two open outlets! It has been a completely trying experience with the back and forth of plug ins and then outs as I’ve moved from equipment to equipment. It has, however pushed me to do more at once and plan ahead more. I’ve learned new tricks and have been forced to build a crosscut sled instead of relying on my miter saw so often. I’m appreciative for the results of this electric...

Us boys & girls like our remote controls, right?.I’m sure someone has done this before but I haven’t noticed on LumberjocksI had a remote control for operating up to 4 power outlets in the home.It had been shoved in a drawer for some time.I recently bought a new 2hp dust extractor which lives outside the workshopIt’s a bit far away when I need to turn it on using the tablesaw, lathe Radial arm saw or the bandsaw.Also the switch on the lathe is towards the back on the mot...

Toy costruction #93: T&J Dozer #4

08-20-2016 06:56 PM by htl | 9 comments »

Got a few more things done or at least heading in that direction.Worked on the fuel tanks and got the base for it ready.. Then on to one of the funner things to make. Clamped down some boards at just the right angle and by raising the blade about an 1/16” at a time cut out the blade. It’s getting there won’t be long now.

Cherry finger jointed box #1: the start up

08-20-2016 06:32 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

A few weeks ago, picked a slab of wood at a yard sale, for a dollar bill… Slab was 5’ long, just over 1” thick. At the narrow end, it was over 12” wide, far end was 17” counting the bark.I resawed it down to something I could use. Then decided to resaw these into 1/2” thick slabs… Had decent luck with two of the slabs, the other two? Not so nice. Well, maybe I can “make do” with the better stuff? Crosscut the better of the...

New shop! #5: I needed a new jointer

08-20-2016 02:45 PM by Steve Felsheim | 3 comments »

When I moved into a shared shop, I sold my 6” jointer (no love loss) because the shared shop had an 8”. Now that I am back in my own shop, I needed a new jointer. I REALLY wanted something larger than an 8”. I really, really hate ripping down a nice piece of wood just so I can make it flat (yes, I can do it by hand, and have many times). I love the idea of an old industrial jointer, but I didn’t want to screw around with 3ph power, or rebuilding a machine. I...

New shop! #4: Shop furniture: I will do it right this time! -- Outfeed table

08-20-2016 02:23 PM by Steve Felsheim | 2 comments »

Given I was moving from a shared shop, I had zero shop furniture and no storage. Ugh. I have always been lazy with my shop furniture. Basically 2×4s and plywood slapped together so I could get back to furniture projects. I always paid for this wil frustration down the road. I am trying very hard to think it through and make sure I can store what I need where I use it. I figured I need the following to be fully functional. 1.) Outfeed table for the table saw.2.) Miter bench t...

Big Rig by T& J #7: BIG RIG DONE

08-20-2016 01:34 PM by svfdfireman | 3 comments »

I have finished the assembly of the rig. a few spots to sand and a coat of sanding sealer. Then a few coats of polyurethane gloss. Things I learned in this build. Finish the interior before putting on the roof. Should have put purpleheart strip on the doors. After reading all the How To on making wheels I will try that next. Use other plans to add items to customize the build.

Marquetry School #9: Prepping for Piece by Piece Course

08-20-2016 01:14 AM by shipwright | 5 comments »

Fall classes are rolling around in a few weeks and there’s something new. I now have students who have enough experience to benefit from a piece by piece class and two will be taking advantage this September. This means that I have to prepare a palette of colours, grain patterns, and species of veneer in packets of four for them to design their pieces around.Today, I selected and cut thirty-five packets complete with backers (no front “wasters” on piece by piece packets). To...
