Shop progress #3: Oh Baby what did I get into

06-04-2007 03:21 PM by Mario | 8 comments »

I have been away for a while and things have changed. My Wife and I celebrated our 20th and got away for a few days…Nice. I was checking craigslist and found a baby grand piano for sale cheap. My wife has always wanted one but we have never been able to afford one. This one was for sale for $150. The owner started to restore it and found that it was way more than he could do and the quote to restore it was about $10,000.00 so he sold it to me. I picked it up and started to work...

Wood Scripted Beauty ....’as a man thinks so is he’, and so we start to think till one day we realize that we have become what we thought…. —-therefore, one might say that it is profitable in all things, to think on those things which are for the betterment of ones body, soul and spirit…. —-now one can go deeper into the heart of the matter by peeling back the outer shell of thinking, till one is found in the inner workings of seeing, and from this...

Auxillary Workbench #4: Top

06-04-2007 01:39 AM by mot | 10 comments »

I joined the bases with the stretchers by using dowels as anti rotation pins, and then running a bolt through the stretcher to pull everything up tight… I added a top that is 22" x 12" of double thickness birch plywood. You can see some blade burn on both the plywood and the hard maple bases. It was a sharp blade, but I had feed rate issues. Cutting the top. The excalibur blade guard is a real asset when cutting sheet goods for not only finger protection, but overblade dust...

MacGyvering #2: clearing the air

06-03-2007 06:16 AM by scottb | 21 comments »

There was a tip a few years back in FWW where someone took a box fan, and attached a furnace filter to it with some wood blocks to hold it in place. The beauty of the design, once built, was that it was super easy to switch out a dirty filter…. I remembered this old tip, and snagged a 20” x 20” box fan last weekend when i went out to pick up a new dehumidifier. The old one nearly started a fire when I plugged it in. Flames were literally arcing between the plug and the ex...

A Workbench's Progress #6: Base plan

06-03-2007 04:39 AM by TheGravedigger | 11 comments »

As requested, here is my basic plan for the workbench base. This was my first (semi) successful drawing with Google SketchUp, so please pardon the crudeness. I plan on starting on this phase in the next week or two (after payday). The wood will be southern yellow pine dimension lumber. With the exception of the 2x6 lower stretchers, the rest will be 2x4's. The upper stretchers will be single thickness, the outside legs and feet will be glue-lams of 2 studs, and the center legs and ...

Craftsman - Stickley Projects #5: Three Steps Forward, At Least One Step Back

06-03-2007 02:43 AM by Paul | 3 comments »

I “completed” the carcases and installation of the drawer dividers on the “twins.” click for larger image Things were going so well, I guess I was feeling frisky and got ahead of myself. I installed the dividers before attaching the side drawer guides on the twin. But hey, I’m a pockethole “expert” now! So, I’ll just drill some pocketholes and attach the side drawer guides without taking the dividers back out. On number eight of 10 sid...
