The Quest for a Better Bench #7: The last part...

11-12-2017 01:43 AM by PlanBWoodworks | 0 comments »

So the bench was DONE. I was very happy with the way that it turned out. It was solid, it was heavy, it was visually appealing and it was going to be around for a long time. Just in case you don’t remember what it looked like: Ok, I’ll admit, I just wanted to show it off. Anyway, because I was so pleased with the bench, I decided to rearrange my entire shop. This led to some storage issues. Also, the bench that I dismantled to make room for the new bench was the bench where I mou...

Greene & Greene Gamble House Side Chair #9: Pattern Sander Setup and Bandsaw Upgrade

11-11-2017 04:14 AM by TungOil | 5 comments »

With my pattern sanding technique proven and a length of UHMW-PE tubing delivered I got to work making a bushing for the spindle sander. I roughed out a 1” piece of tubing to start. There is just enough clearance between the sanding drum and the table insert to fit a bushing. I turned the bushing on the lathe to a nice press into the existing table insert. The bushing provide a 1/4” offset from the sanding drum which will make design of the patterns easier. ...

Roughing it out (Wooden Sword and White Sword)

11-10-2017 03:52 PM by NadarCreative | 2 comments »

I decided to try and make some wall art pieces based on the first Legend of Zelda game on the old NES. I grabbed some pine boards and printed out some large pixel art of the items as they appear in the game, roughing them out on the band saw and sanding them more accurately into shape. I also have both boomerangs and the blue potion to show soon. This should be a fun ride…

Christmas Gifts #4: Completed 42 Cell Phone Stands

11-10-2017 03:35 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

I had ten stands to fit parts together today. I have 42 stands now ready for finish. I need to remember to burn letter initials or first names to these stands before applying any dye or finish. The poplar hardwood will get a walnut dye coat. I will test some of the pine with this dye. The rest will get Danish Oil coats.

Drilled a couple holes, bandsaw to rough ly shape each handle…there was a longer 1×4...
