Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #1: Part #1 - Where to Start

07-17-2016 01:53 PM by EarlS | 4 comments »

First things first: I am a mostly self-taught woodworker that has been at it for about 20 years. I’ve made a wide range of projects, mostly focused around furniture and accessories for the house, typically Craftsman, Arts and Crafts, Stickley, and Greene and Greene influences. I’ve been working in the chemical manufacturing world as a chemical engineer for 27 years. I’m currently a Project Engineer by day, working for one of the largest corn processing companies in the world building ch...

Toy costruction #83: Low Boy Trailer Getting er Done #3

07-16-2016 08:23 PM by htl | 14 comments »

Getting close on this one just some fine sanding and add a back bumper with lights, then some finish.This is a fun build and cool to have something to help connect my different models together. I’m going to steal the tires off the black car and use them on the trailer they match up with the Mack truck so that works out just right.I painted my spare set of spoker wheels for the black car so we’ll see how that works. lol I really like using the dowels as a fram...

Under-counter Shelf and Hinges

07-16-2016 01:49 PM by SirFatty | 4 comments »

I wanted to have a space in the garage shop to keep my pencils and paper for working, stuff needed when working on projects. The items were kept in a cabinet which works of course, but is not too convenient, especially when using the pad of paper. The paper on a clipboard would be used at the bench, but was frequently in the way. What I needed was a desk, but space would not allow for something like that. The solution is an under-counter shelf that folds down at an angle.. looking onlin...

Saving An Etch

Cleaning a hand saw blade can be done using two methods (that I’ve found) using either sandpaper or a scraper. I’m brand new to using the scraper and was not sure of the results I would get, but what a surprise. Check out the results of this handsaw restoration using a scraper. Please like and subscribe and check out my channel for more woodworking! Link to Video

Toy costruction #82: Low Boy Trailer build #2

07-15-2016 09:48 PM by htl | 10 comments »

Just some progress on the low boy. Used my miter saw for all the angled cuts [22 1/2°] but when I got to this point used the drum sander on the Shopsmith to sand where the front assembly and back meet up so everything comes out just right. Marked for center to be sure and not miss and then free hand drilled for dowels for a little extra support. O!!! I should mention I’m making mine an 8 wheel trailer and all so shortening it from a 17”...

Router Table Build #5: Cabinet Build

07-15-2016 04:36 PM by bkseitz | 1 comment »

Its been a long time between shop projects. Harbor Freight Dust Collection System still seating in pieces yet to be assembled as are a few other projects in various states of incompleteness :-( However, the past week I did manage to get some shop time. The new layout I made for the shop several months ago before all the WEPs started is proving out to be very productive. I actually have dedicated space to layout, cut, fabricate, and assemble. Still need a finishing area. However, separat...

Boomerang Fail!?

07-15-2016 03:21 PM by Dave Rutan | 16 comments »

When I was trimming trees in my yard last year I noticed this nicely bent elbow from a maple tree. Thinking ‘boomerang’ I saved it. Recently I decided to try tackling this one. I’ve owned, thrown and lost my share of boomerangs and have done some research on how they can be made. Well, despite my best heroic efforts this one just doesn’t perform well. The shape is right and I tried tweaking it. When throw it, it does turn to the left, as it should, but ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1746: 50 Shades of Grey and Other Adventures

07-15-2016 11:44 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

If anything, we are learning that expanding to a full sized home from a one bedroom apartment is an 'adventure'.  While customizing things to our own needs and preferences is fun, it is a lot of work and takes a great deal of time. Yesterday we decided to take off to New Minas – a town that is about two hours away – as that is where the nearest Home Depot store is located. I mentioned before that I had not finished with my scroll saw room and one of the things th...

Toy costruction #81: Low Boy Trailer build #1

07-14-2016 09:08 PM by htl | 15 comments »

Well it’s about time to get my Excavator a trailer, so the low boy is on the table.Just cutting out some of the main parts. I had found a wobble dado blade at a yard sale some time back but my Dewalt can’t use it so ordered a 5/8 arbor for the Shopsmith so now I can cut my dados in one pass where it used to take me forever to get er done. Back 30 something years ago I used to use a wobble blade on my dewalt radial arm saw but from what I remember it would vibrate a little bu...
