Oak Leaf theme, Dining Table

11-21-2015 11:25 PM by Dennis Zongker | 32 comments »

It’s been a long time for me to post anything here on lumberjocks. I still look everyday to see the projects, and a lot of them have been incredible works of art. Which is one of the reasons I love being a member of this web site. This table has pushed me to my limits as far as craftsmanship I am completely exhausted and worn out. I feel like a athlete right now because I’ve been icing me knees and had to get a shot of cortisone to help me get moving again. Now I’m ont...

Dual Candy dispenser #4: A "Sopranos" style Disappointing finale

11-21-2015 08:06 PM by Tooch | 1 comment »

So just when you thought you might see what the final product looks like, I am going to fade the screen to black, just like the last episode of the Sopranos. Unfortunately, as I mentioned in my first post under this blog, I donated this to a charity event and it was raffled off before I got to take decent pictures of it. So, another one of my projects goes without being posted… ugh. At least a distant relative was the winner/recipient of the candy dispenser, so maybe sometime ove...

Dual Candy dispenser #3: The spout and assembly

11-21-2015 08:00 PM by Tooch | 1 comment »

So I first must apologize because I didn’t take any pictures of drilling the holes for the top piece. Essentially, the top and bottom are mirror images, just with the top adding the 2 sets of offset holes for the candy to feed down through and into the slider. Anywho, I’m going to pick it up with the spout, and then assembly. For the spout, I wanted to make it all one piece because I never do good with lots of tiny pieces. My best thought was to cut a piece 1-3/4” wide...

Dual Candy dispenser #2: The sliders

11-21-2015 07:46 PM by Tooch | 0 comments »

So after finishing out the main body, It was time to make the sliders. I started by planing a piece slightly thinner that 3/4” (half crank less than 11/16”) to allow for movement within the dado. then it was time to drill out the hole. As per Tony’s picture, it is a lot better if the hole is drilled at a 50 degree angle. Well, rather than making a whole new jig, I decided to clamp my spline jig to the drill press table. Hey, 45 degrees is close enough, right? at ...

MAKING A WOODEN GEARED CLOCK #6: Recut One Gear and Made a Sanding Jig

11-21-2015 05:46 PM by stefang | 16 comments »

Got a late start today so not much done. Todays WorkYou might remember that I messed up the escapement gear. The sharp tips of the teeth were very fragile and I broke a few out on the tip and back edges. I made a replacement today and found a good cutting technique that preserves the tips of the teeth and I also used a close to zero blade clearance auxiliary table for my scroll saw which maybe helped too. Improved Cutting TechniqueInstead of cutting fragile tooth tips close to the pat...

All Knotted Up #3: Phase Last

11-21-2015 08:29 AM by Mark Wilson | 11 comments »

I know. I know. I said the next time I posted anything about this Thing would be as a finished project. This is, indeed, the last you’ll hear of it. For I am done with it. I made myself a hollowing tool some time ago. It’s been working pretty well. It’s a little touchy about how it’s presented to the wood. But I’ve done okay with it. It didn’t like my little Celtic Knot Lidded Jar. It just went BANG. And pieces, too many to fix, fell to the floor....

Spray gun

11-21-2015 03:43 AM by Dullchisel | 2 comments »

I am I’m the search for a good spray gun for my air compressor. I really don’t have lots of money but have a good compressor. I have used several guns over the years and have had problems recently with the guns spraying lacquer. I had great results with the cheapo from harbor freight but it only lasted a few time then wouldn’t spray. I borrowed a kobalt brand gun to finish my last job and was terrible. Just looking for ideas for a decent gun.
