Life as an Amateur Woodworker #39: Bar Clamps

02-23-2015 02:34 AM by PhilBello | 2 comments »

They say that you can never have too many clamps, in my case I have a distinct shortage, so decided to do something about it this week. I only have one clamp of any length, and that is a pipe clamp I made some time ago, I decided to make some wooden bar clamps, but storage is at a premium, so some of the sturdier, heavier clamps were out before I started. I reviewed a number of YouTube videos on the subject, and ended up taking ideas from two or three of them. One alteration from the...

Woodturning #5: First turning project completed

02-23-2015 02:26 AM by DW833 | 2 comments »

Completed my first project. A simple paper towel holder. Considering that I have no idea what I’m doing with the tools, it turned out well. Not sure on the wood, but I think it could be ash. I started with a blank similar to a bowl blank for the base. Attached it to face plate and used a carbide tipped rougher to get it round and smooth. I thought it could be smoother, but couldn’t get it there. So used sand paper to smooth and shape it a small amount.For the rod I cut a pi...

Park Model Deck #1: Unconventional Park Model Deck

02-23-2015 01:54 AM by Jim Jakosh | 13 comments »

This year the project for our park model was a new deck. This grouping of photos show how I built it- but not the conventional way. I designed it to have drawers below for storage and wanted the railing on the outside of the deck the carpet could be easily changed in the future. Here is what we started with: I used my laser mount ( to set the level line to start: And then I built small rectangles with 2×4”s and connected top and bott...

Jointer tips

02-23-2015 01:46 AM by LJackson | 3 comments »

I recently purchased a used Jet six inch cabinet jointer. The last time I used a jointer was decades ago in high school shop class. I don’t know if I have just forgotten, or if I was never taught the proper operation of the jointer. What I do remember, is coming out of high school thinking it was exclusively used for flattening the edge of a board, not also the face. Through investigation, and experimentation, I have come to some ideas on how the jointer is to be set up and used. The...

Morris Chair #8: OK. Don't get lazy now! You're almost there.

02-23-2015 01:03 AM by Luddite | 2 comments »

22 Feb. 2015 Well, the weather changed here. Went from a high of 70 to 81 this past week. I almost broke out in a sweat…..The desert flowers are just opening. The shop cats are very interested in the few little lizards sunning by the shop door. So enough on the weather. This past week seemed like forever. I decided to do some more inlays on the chairs. We went to the gem and mineral show. My first time after 40 years. It was interesting to say the least. I also did the ...

Create your own key rack so you never lose those keys again. If you don’t have a forge to heat up your metal hooks, you can use a propane torch.
