Repairing Mine and an Other's

10-02-2015 05:41 PM by Dave Rutan | 5 comments »

One of the things I get to do is repair the rhythm instruments that get broken at my wife’s school. In this case a pair of slit drums were the victims of over-exuberant students. The longer drum was commercially purchased sometime ago and my wife has commented several times how badly made it was. The other drum is the one I made last year. Looking at the damage of both, I decided the best course of action was to remove the broken tops and simply make replacements. I made th...

Hints and Tips #14: KISS System Dust Collector

10-02-2015 05:07 PM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

I don’t like the idea of breathing in dust while running my machinery any more than the next guy (er, woodworker.) A few years ago, when we finally stopped using our last box fan, I hid it away, having an idea to re-purpose it down the road. So a few weeks ago, I decided to take another step towards a safer shop. I dug out the fan and cleaned it up. After checking that it still ran OK, I went out and bought one of those filters for forced hot air heating systems and installed it on...

All right! Last stretch this week. We will have pro picture next week and I will post them for you guys as well of a video of the mechanism in action. But for now! Lets talk about french polish While finishing the fine sanding I have been pushing forward the pore filling and the polishing of the tray so it could be sent to LA for the leather. Then I started with the pore-filling of the all box. The top first with the pore filling of the outside and inside every other da...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1631: Self-Challenges

10-02-2015 12:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It felt so good to be caught up yesterday. That, by no means translates to being 'done' with everything – but it more or less means that I am on a workable schedule. For a while there, I thought I was slipping, with getting things completed just under the wire. While I like to have deadlines to pace myself, there are times that the sneak up faster than I anticipate and I find myself wondering if I will be able to meet them. It can be a slippery slope when I don't leave enoug...

Klein Solid Body Electric Travel Guitar #8: Glue on the Fretboard

10-02-2015 11:53 AM by Dave G | 2 comments »

Before installing the fretboard started some shaping using the Festool disk sander/grinder. My experience making Maloof chairs has paid off as I found this very easy and fun.Started to Take Shape I installed some small bits of 4d nail in the bed of the fretboard and the fretboard itself to hold alignment while clamping up. Alignment Pins in Neck and Holes at White Marks on Ebony Fretboard Then I glued with Titebond III, clamping down to table saw top for dead flatness. There is a...

Slow Days at the Shop. #2: Repairing my antique basswood drawing board.

10-02-2015 07:48 AM by fatman51 | 1 comment »

I cleaned up my shop after work today, intent on gluing the plane tote pattern I printed from the Lee Valley website to a scrap of wood to make a permanent pattern, thanks goes to terryR for Shop Log 20. . Unfortunately, my printed pattern was off scale, .9487 to 1. Rather than fiddle with he printer settings and hoping for the best, I figured out the scale and grabbed my old drawing board from the closet in my shop. This decision wrecked my plans...

Fliptop Tool Stand Video

10-01-2015 05:16 PM by GodofBiscuits | 3 comments »

I created a video showing the construction of a Fliptop Tool Stand I built for my planer and oscillating spindle sander. My shop, like so many others is inside a small two car garage with some days feels like a one car garage. Space is not something I have a lot of and because the house I live in is a rental and only temporary, I can’t build cabinets like I’d like and or don’t want to put in the effort to build something that I’ll just have to remove and take apart whe...
