Pine Auger bit box #3: Holder #1, test drive

10-18-2016 12:04 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Not too sure I like how it is going. Played hooky today, tomorrow I find out about my version of Big Ben’s Knee. Got pretty worn out trying to get ONE holder done. Block was short in length by..~1/8-1/4”....have that fixed. These are the bits I am trying to build a holder for….and, These are the drills I thought I’d use to make the holder.. First hole wasn’t that great. I tried holding the block at a 45 degree angle in the vise. Bit followed th...

Toy costruction #112: 32 Chevy Adding the last touchs

10-17-2016 08:15 PM by htl | 15 comments »

My first radiator didn’t turn out right I made the trim to thin and close to the edge so when I started sanding it the radiator under the trim came throw so made a better one or at least different. What caused the problem was not having the right size router bit and cutting too big a seat for the radiator but on this second try it hit me that my laminate trimmer bit would do it with a smaller bearing on it. Then on to making the front axle.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1789: Back From My Break

10-17-2016 02:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

“How can you miss me if I don’t go away?” It’s one of those questions that may seem to state the obvious, but few seem to get it. As many of you that follow me know, I have been going through a kind of ‘transition’ all summer long. I have been blogging for what I think may be six years already (I truly lost count) and never mind sharing my creative adventures with you all. (Some personal ones as well!) You have been just as inspirational to me as you ...

Carving a Life Size Statue #4: Jointing the arms,Sizing the body,Carving some details

10-17-2016 12:57 PM by Dennis Zongker | 17 comments »

This is definitely the most difficult carving for me so far in my life. I’m learning a ton and getting in good shape doing something that I love to do. Using a plum bob is an excellent way to find depth points to re-ensure that I don’t carve to deep. On the face alone using 37 different points to locate important depths to match up crucial face details. The face is not fully detailed I will go back and detail after the arms and hands have been sized then I will glue on the arm...

Marble to wood

10-17-2016 11:03 AM by loxley | 2 comments »

Hello everyone, Jonathan here from England. I actually work in marble but as I love design in general I have decided to embark on a few wood projects. You can all see my work on Google images if it interests you. Just type in Jonathan Loxley. I guess I first wanted to ingratiate myself with you all as a newbie by showing I have skills but little knowledge on the wood front.So I’m looking to tap knowledge and share on my next projects.Best wishes,

Hand tools #2: Stanley No. 116 Mitre Box rehab-first in-depth job

10-17-2016 08:38 AM by CFrye | 19 comments »

I picked up this little mitre box at a flea market back in August for $6. It came with a Warranted Superior backsaw with a bent back/plate and possibly a replacement handle? That’s another story. Out of all the tools that I have brought home to ‘save’ I’m not sure why this one jumped to the front of the rehab line. Maybe because it didn’t need sharpened. And I was pretty sure I wouldn’t be de-valuing it with refinishing (yeah, I watched a lot of Antiqu...

Shop stuff #59: Makita 2012 thickness planer service

10-17-2016 12:27 AM by JimDaddyO | 11 comments »

Well, the planer was leaving tracks on one part of the blade. Obviously a chip in the knives at that point. So, with the camera rolling, I decided I would give the machine a bit of a clean up. It is a Makita 2012 planer, a little 12” lunchbox planer that I got from my father in law. So, the price was right. It is a bit odd in that the table moves up and down and the motor stays fixed in place. That makes in feed and out feed tables just about impossible. But, it is a good little ...
