Jig Blog #3: Another Shaper Dough Nut or is it Donut?

10-01-2015 08:03 AM by robscastle | 5 comments »

I made this jig to enable me to re-route the common stress relief recesses in floor boards that I was using. I am making a box from floorboard off cuts for a friend as a house warming gift but its an unfinished project at the moment so more on it later.The box has a curved handle on the lid and its the concave section that I needed to do some additional finish work on.First up I clamped up the material that I used for the handle to produce the required curve. It was then upon releas...

Shop stuff #2: Cabinet construction video

10-01-2015 12:09 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I built the main part of the shelving unit for the shop in this video. I basically just muddled along and got the job done. I have a bunch of video of the build and I am trying to get caught up. A bit more editing in this one, but I am trying to get them a bit shorter and easier to digest. I hope you enjoy it!

Hints and Tips #13: Spalted Log Breakdown

09-30-2015 07:34 PM by Dave Rutan | 9 comments »

This is a 2 foot section of a 12 foot long branch which I dragged off our bank this week. I speculated that if it wasn’t too rotten that it would have some spalted wood in it. After cutting it in half on my band saw, I discovered I was right. [Below] I screwed the half log onto a board with an edge overhanging the board. More imortantly one edge of the board was clear of the log as well. This is so that the board will be flat to the table saw and the edge of the board will r...

My kegerator build...the perfect merging of wood and beer brewing!

09-30-2015 03:30 PM by Holzarbeiterin | 0 comments »

This blog just gives a bit more information about the kegerator project I submitted to LJ. The woodworking part of the project is pretty simple. If someone wants more info about that just send me a note. I thought some of you might be interested in the “beer side” of this story. For other current or wannbe beer geeks out there here’s a bit more info about the beer brewing/dispensing side of the project. The thermostatI do not use the thermostat that came with the freezer. It isn’t poss...

Klein Solid Body Electric Travel Guitar #7: Hogging Out the Cavities

09-30-2015 09:31 AM by Dave G | 0 comments »

Hi all, I measured at least 10 times before making the cavity cuts. These need to be done before shaping so there is support for the tools – drill press and router. Before beginning the routs I had a little cleanup to do on the butt end of the through neck. The photo shows I back cut the tuner mount (this travel guitar is headless and has the tuner behind the bridge) to 20 degrees. This is so the tuners swing nominally level after tensioning the strings. If I didn’t ...

Shop stuff #1: preparing for a cabinet

09-30-2015 02:57 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

The new shop is coming along. You may have seen the Spidey Box project I posted about. It is nice to work in, but still in disarray and needs some organizing. I am building a big storage unit and getting video of it. Just making it out of construction material, it has to be sturdy and yet look decent. Here is a photo of it part way through and a video of how I went about getting there. I have more footage of it and I am going to edit them into “bite sized” pieces and post th...
