Spinning wheel #10: Tapered pegs today

08-26-2016 01:25 AM by Alongiron | 3 comments »

I made some small but big progress today in the right areas. I set the main axle pegs in place today using my tapering tool. I drilled out the holes 1/8” smaller than the peg itself (3/8”) Using my tapering tool, the top of the hole is reamed out to match the diameter of the peg at the top end and fit to match the smaller end. Here you can see one of the pegs in place I also tapered the ends of the Maidens so they can be easily accessible to remove the bobbin...

Harbor Freight Workbench Improvement #1: Wagon Vise In-Progress

08-25-2016 08:29 PM by bobasaurus | 2 comments »

When I was getting started in woodworking, I bought a cheap “60 in. 4 Drawer Hardwood Workbench” from Harbor Freight using a coupon and using their free shipping at the time. It’s served me well for many years, but has several major shortcomings that have always bothered me (thin top, rickety base, too light, crappy vise). Instead of sinking the cash into building a fancy benchcrafted split-top roubo, I’ve been slowly planning on upgrading the HF bench. Over the y...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #74: Dungeon Workshop: Update Summer 2016, ad nauseum

08-25-2016 07:33 PM by Paul Bucalo | 2 comments »

So where have I been since June? Sick for over a month. Then dealing with Dad’s Estate Sale, which was a lot of work. And then playing catchup on projects that should have been started months before. I’m still running full speed to get caught up before the cold weather arrives. Not sure if I will make it. Earlier I had some projects in the works. As it turned out, they were all back-burnered or resolved without completion. I wasn’t upset. The dungeon needed to be organize...

Building my Workbench #1: Quit thinking and relocate your donkey!

08-25-2016 04:25 PM by HokieKen | 7 comments »

Okay, I’ve been determined to do a blog series on some project but they’ve all gotten away without being documented. But, I’m gonna document this build because I’ve been planning it for so long that it deserves some posterity! This won’t be a quick build given my limited shop time so don’t expect daily updates and a wrap-up in a week. But, we’ll get there so come along for the ride if you like. I’ve wanted a new bench for a couple of yea...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1767: Plays Well With Others

08-25-2016 12:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Aristotle said "The whole is more than the sum of its parts." While most of us know that in the literal sense that statement is incorrect, figuratively I think it has a lot of merit. The way that I interpret it is that we accomplish a great deal more working together with others than we can accomplish individually. I am seeing evidence of that lately in so many aspects of my work. Since Keith has come to be a my partner, our business has soared. Not only is it easier to sh...

Thanks for looking !!

Plywood Chevalet #5: CNC Kits are Ready to Go

08-25-2016 12:42 AM by shipwright | 17 comments »

It’s been a quite a long haul getting all the bugs worked out but the first CNC cut chevy was delivered yesterday and the next three are ready to go. The plan here was to give my students an affordable choice to custom made hardwood “fine furniture” or alternatively an easier home build. I am pleased with the results and I am sure that this will lead to more people experiencing this tool and the fine work that it can do. I have built in arm height adjustment over a range of ...

Mirror Frame #3: Mirror Fitted Backboard Added for Strength..

08-24-2016 08:55 PM by HappyHowie | 1 comment »

Hand chisels were used to fit the 24” by 36” mirror into the rabbets I cut into the back of the frame. Fits… I decided to add 1/4” Baltic Birch plywood panel to the frame’s back in order to strengthen the frame. The mirror I bought was 1/4” thick and a bit heavy. I doubt the frame itself would have been strong enough to hold mirror. With the plywood panel screwed into the frame along with a cardboard backing between the panel and the mirror...
