Greene & Greene Gamble House Side Chair #11: A Lumber Mill Run

12-04-2017 04:13 AM by TungOil | 5 comments »

The Sapele that I ordered arrived at Hearne Hardwoods earlier in the week. I need about 300 bf for this set of chairs. I can get all of the components for a single chair from one 8/4 board as long as it is at least 9” wide and 10’ long, so I need at least 12 boards. Ed at Hearne brought in 400 bf of wide 8/4 quarter sawn Sapele for me to select my boards from. The boards are all 16-18 foot lengths, and 10”+ wide. At 16 to 18 feet long these boards are too big fo...

replacing leaky hose on harbor freight hose reel

12-04-2017 12:34 AM by Blake Haskins | 2 comments »

In this video I replaced the leaking rubber hose on the popular harbor freight hose reel, with another harbor freight. To be fair, the original hose lasted quiet a while, before it started leaking. It was a lot harder than it should have been, but hopefully if you have this same problem and want to know if its possible, then this video should help.

Making the Penrose Sliding Trivet

12-03-2017 04:38 PM by Woodbutchery | 3 comments »

Lazyman posted his sliding trivets a few years back, and after a lot of banging around, I Put together one of these, but there were a few problems with my design; the pieces tended to want to come apart, and I wanted something to hold the trivet together so that you couldn’t easily slide it apart. After a little knocking around and a suggestion from my mother, I came up with the item below. So. Pieces are milled to 3/8” thickness and 3/4” width. I use “se...

• Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu #12: Upper Case

12-01-2017 09:56 PM by Ron Aylor | 6 comments »

Upper Case - Before any assembly of the upper case could take place, I needed to cut a few dados for shelves. Once located, I struck knife lines for the thickness of the shelf stock. I then used a chisel to accentuate the knife lines … creating a nice little trough for …  … the gent saw to cut the shoulders of the dado(s) ...  … and a chisel to bust loose the waste.  I then went to town with my Old Woman’s Tooth … cleaning out the dado(s) to a 1/4” depth …  … all the while k...

CNC router build #3: Electronic Package going together lickity split...

12-01-2017 08:42 PM by Mainiac Matt | 5 comments »

When I converted my bench top mill to CNC control, I used a really slick little unit called a Gecko-540, that combined the stepper motor drivers, a break out board (with limit switch and spindle signal hook ups) all in a box the size of a box of checks… And all I did was mount it into a partitioned off area of my home build stand (wood construction) with a power supply. And while this set up was very inexpensive, easy and totally adequate for a hobby shop, this router buil...

CNC router build #2: Z-axis motor mount fabricated and installed.

12-01-2017 07:52 PM by Mainiac Matt | 1 comment »

Fabricated the motor mounts and bored out the motor shaft coupler to fit the metric ball screw shaft…. The base has been mostly done for a while now…. but I couldn’t detail how we would mount the bearing blocks for the long axis ball screw until I had them in my hands and could verify the geometry… so we banged those out. Here’s the base upside down on the bench… Mechanically… things are wrapping up… I’m just having a hard t...

Kitchen Countertops in Sapele #4: Nearly done

12-01-2017 01:03 PM by edapp | 1 comment »

We have been living with the kitchen for a little over 60 days and I finally have the cabinet doors and drawers installed (no knobs or pulls yet…). There are still some alignment issues to address, and some doors need to be cut down just a hair. I decided to use the blum compact hinge which does not have quite the ease or range of adjustment that the full size hinges have. I think this was a good decision, despite the pain that it makes installing an aligning the doors. Cabinet doors I ...

Spalted Ca. Coastal Live Oak Coffee/End Table Top

12-01-2017 01:25 AM by highlander33 | 3 comments »

This Cookie Cut Table Top was taken from the same tree that has produced some of the other Spalted Table Tops,just from a different section of the tree This table top has several different characteristics that I thought added to it’s beautyThe fact that it’s spalted and must have been in a fire probably around 100 years ago . also a slight touch of burl in the center of the pith . These pictures were taken during sanding and after my second coat of epoxy
