Violin Kit #1: Unboxing

04-05-2018 04:38 PM by Dave Rutan | 9 comments »

I decided to buy myself some education on lutherie. This is a kit that I bought from eBay, though it apparently is the same kit that you’d get from tomtop.com [link]. The body of the violin comes pre-assembled, but unlike the more expensive stew mac version, the purfling is already installed. I was actually expecting painted on purfling, so this was a pleasant surprise. I’ll need to create the dado into which the neck is fit and fit the pegs and drill a hole for the end button. The only t...

• Two Tier Side Table #2: Playing Around in Paint

04-05-2018 02:37 PM by Ron Aylor | 21 comments »

Playing Around in Paint –  After a few hours playing around in Paint, This is what I have so far.           Nothing too fancy. I’m thinking maybe 20” W x 20” D x 22” H (or a bit higher) , with a 6” high drawer. I’ll use cherry and ash as shown. I’m torn between cherry bread boards on the lower tier or an ash border akin to the top … will just have to wait and see. I may also taper the legs a bit to the inside. Well … time to start roughing out some lumber.  Thank...

Dungeon Remodel, the drill til #2: Clean a bench, install the til

04-05-2018 04:54 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, part 2. Instead of taking a nap, decided to clean house in the shop…. Lots of just junk in the way….other items just needed put away, finally. This “bench” used to be an old square table, somewhere in it’s history, it lost it’s legs. So now, it sits on a pair of sawhorses. This was the original bench when the Dungeon Shop first started up. Grinder and sanding center needed to be switched around. First, wire wheels were removed from the g...

Dungeon Remodel, the drill til #1: Start up, getting rid of the mess

04-05-2018 04:17 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, something a little different this time around. Had a bit of Pine leftovers.. Some fancy, most were not. I even found a 1×10 to add to the fancy stuff..1×10 x 4’....needed a way to make use of some of this lumber, rather than throwing it in the fire pit…hmm… Over-flowing with braces…this old til has been out-grown….6 spaces, for 12 drills? I think I could do a bit better? I could build a longer/wider til…..but where to set it? ...

Got started on a small train yesterday thinking of making it one of those toy book end kind a projects, but we’ll have to see where it wants to go.The chimney is all ready way different than I had planned but that’s the way it wanted to be. lolThe chimney is also way big but maybe it will turn out alright.The chimney and boiler were glued up for my last train [as one looong turning], but the glue up didn’t go as planed not straight so cut it down and we get another train pro...

Youtube videos: Another element to Woodworking #2: What i have learned about Video View numbers

04-05-2018 01:53 AM by rustednail | 2 comments »

One thing I have learned with the youtube channel thus far is that you never know which videos are going to get more views than others. I have made a few videos that I felt were going to do well and get lots of views, likes and comments but got almost nothing. On the other hand, one of the most watched videos I have on my channel is one that I recorded and edited quickly and without a lot of thought behind it. This video in particular didn’t have many views for the first week, but it seems to...

Disston saw restoration #1: Great find on Ebay

04-04-2018 07:43 PM by Oldtool | 8 comments »

About 2 weeks ago I was viewing hand saws on Ebay, looking for something to cut the cheeks on tenons, as I have two Disston saws – one 14” and one 16”, and a 12” Jackson (made by Disston) all filed for cross cut. I came across this Disston, as is and not touched by the seller: After receiving it, I decided to clean it up and change the teeth from cross cut to rip, but otherwise it was in good shape – straight, great tote condition without any damage, j...

Three drawer hall cerdenza #3: Third & Final in Series

04-04-2018 05:55 PM by Oldtool | 2 comments »

I’m going to end this Blog here, as there won’t be any new details in my build that may benefit others regarding my process, as the future owner of this credenza visited during the Easter holiday and here’s where we stand: The legs are not to be detailed with embellishment as I thought I might be doing & described prior. While this piece resembles a French Country style, the most favorite style of the future owner is Shaker, so this piece will be limited in excess det...

DIY Bat Houses

04-04-2018 02:01 PM by wrenchhead | 8 comments »

I made these bat houses over the weekend. Mosquitoes get pretty bad where I live and it is beneficial to have bats around as natural insect control. These definitely are not fine woodworking projects but they are fun, cheap and easy to make. I hope you like the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjbAb255M68

• Two Tier Side Table #1: Realization

04-04-2018 12:25 PM by Ron Aylor | 9 comments »

Realization -  It was brought to my attention this morning that we need a side table.  A few months ago I picked up some really nice cherry and ash from Suwanee Lumber. I’m sure the stock has had enough time to get used to my shop. So, perhaps it’s time to start working on a two tier side table. It might take me a few days to determine what this table should look like … so, stay tuned to see what I come up with. Thanks for looking, more to come! Follow my progress with the l...
