Chevalet de Marqueterie #1: Part #2

05-18-2015 08:29 AM by TobiasZA | 4 comments »

Morning.Paul, thanks so much for your enthusiasm and support. Thanks Dutchy for following my build. Below are a few pictures of the beginnings of the build. With me not using a table saw anymore, I have been cutting the joints, especially the bridle and M&T joints, by hand and I find immense enjoyment and satisfaction in doing them. Considering the time it used to take to set up the tenoning jig, cross checking the angle of the blade etc etc, I am finding that a good cup of coffee, no ma...

Chair One #6: A diversion

05-18-2015 06:17 AM by siavosh | 4 comments »

It’s been a while since I posted on my chair build. Truth of the matter is it hasn’t progressed very far. I had begun dimensioning some of the lumber I had ripped, but I was getting frustrated with not having a dedicated flat+true bench top. So I finally decided to build a planing beam out of some 2×4’s. It took a couple weekends, and it was nice not having the personal-pressures of having it come out “beautiful.” Trying my best to avoid knots on the ...

Building a KARA Hummer Layout Duck Boat #5: Fitting the Plywood Hull Panels

05-18-2015 03:25 AM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Overview The frame is complete and it’s time to apply the 1/4” Marine Douglas Fir plywood hull panels. The plan accounts for nailing these panels in place without glue and sealing them with epoxy later. My plan is to apply 2.3 ounce fiberglass cloth to the inside surface with a coat of epoxy before applying the panels. The potential advantage is a very durable/waterproof inside hull surface. The disadvantage is that I must fit the panels prior to final application and I h...

Hand Tool Cabinet - Start To Finish #2: Rehabbing Craftsman Block Plane for future dovetail work

05-18-2015 03:18 AM by Holbs | 2 comments »

One of the requirements for dovetailing, is to use a smoother plane or block plane to knock down the pins (or tails… unsure!). So I went to work on rehabbing a craftsman block plane I pick up recently. Mind you, I did not do a restoration like Doug did in his restoration project: . One day, yes :) But for now, just need a 100% operational block plane for this hand tool cabinet. This would be the first rehab plane I’ve ever done. I am s...

What To Do With This Board? #7: Put A Lid On It!

05-17-2015 11:56 PM by Mean_Dean | 0 comments »

Hey Guys! Today I worked on the lid, and the feet. I wanted a curved end for the lid, that overhangs the box by an inch or so. I looked at several radiuses for the curve, from a 1-gallon paint can to a shampoo bottle to a quart can of expired contact cement. I liked the contact cement can best, and laid out the curve. Next, I cut the curve on the bandsaw, then sanded it smooth on the oscillating spindle sander. Then I needed to notch out the curved end of the lid, so that the ...

HandWorks Event 2015 #2: H.O. Studley Tool Chest and Workbench

05-17-2015 10:28 PM by CharlieK | 1 comment »

The now famous H.O. Studley Tool Chest and Workbench were on display at the Handworks 2015 event in Amana, Iowa. This was a rare opportunity to see these historical masterpieces in person. The exhibition was curated by Don Williams and was very well done! The whole experience went beyond my expectations. The tool chest is only 20”x40” and it holds over 270 different tools! It is adorned with ebony and ivory accents throughout. In addition to that many of the tools we...

Why buy it when you can make it! #33: Workbench Time [Part 1]

05-17-2015 07:50 PM by paxorion | 1 comment »

For a while, I had been working on saw horses with a melamine coated piece of MDF I picked up from the Ikea as-is section. After abusing that thing for 2 years, I figured it was time to embark on a build. My goal for the workbench was to make it as inexpensive as possible. I first thought of going the 2×12 douglas fir route, but opted to liquidate my stash of MDF. The MDF was laminated with Titebond and wood screws across 2 sessions. After finishing the lamination, I double sticke...

Spinning Wheel Repair #1: start: spinningwheel repair

05-17-2015 06:19 PM by Lazy_K | 1 comment »

I will confess a fascination with spinning wheels and looms and all related things. partially because they look so complicated, partially because they have so much variation. it seems like (with the pre-massed produced ones), every single one is somewhat different than every other one. Every single Maker has left their own unique invention and artwork in a form that just sits there, waiting to help someone else do their work. Frequently each one was made by someone who never made another o...
