Compass Deck #4: Refinement and Error

06-17-2016 11:47 AM by Nate Meadows | 16 comments »

Again, this is a junction where I continue to praise the Festool Track Saw. I cleaned up the edges of all the boards bordering the compass by simply laying the track down and setting the depth. The lines came out nice and crisp. I then followed that up by rounding over the edges. I did not want sharp edges on a surface bare feet would be on very frequently. I had to order a special 1/8in Amana Round Over bite with a small bronze bushing brazed on to the the end. As a standard 1/4in...

Spindle Sander - how it works and repair #1: Harbor Freight -old model just like many others

06-17-2016 12:39 AM by curliejones | 0 comments »

A special Thank You to Cosmas on youtube for explaining and showing how this works. I have the Harbor Freight label of the same machine. I bought it used and it quit oscillating after just a couple of uses. The model has changed and H.F. no longer sells this one, but with your demo I decided it would be worth a search to buy the correct belt. The narrow belt was worn and had a loose spot where the outer layer was torn and the belt was not broken through. I crossed the number from another mode...

Toy costruction #63: Not a Cattle Car but a Fruit Car???

06-16-2016 10:01 PM by htl | 12 comments »

It was brought to my attention that if I shrink down the cattle car the long horn cattle will no longer be able to get in so in the quest for authenticity [ya! right] it will now be hauling fruit. LOL So here’s a few more pictures and a how to for making all those slats.I’ve showed this before but this project is made from slats that’s about all it is. So I glued up all the sides and bottom then sanded every thing even. Now here’s a how to for cutting the ...

Summer Uke Build #1: Getting Ready for Summer (Concert) Uke Build

06-16-2016 08:09 PM by onoitsmatt | 2 comments »

I have been playing guitar for nearly 30 years and have been woodworking for about 16 years. For a long time, I have wanted to combine these two hobbies by building a guitar or two. About 18 months ago, I decided to commit to the idea, but realized I was such a hack woodworker, that I really needed to better understand what I was doing before trying to do something that requires the kind of precision a guitar build demands. To that end, I gave up power tools (except for a band saw and dri...

Stack of walnut #1: 4 foot console table

06-16-2016 02:35 PM by TeewinotWoodwork | 0 comments »

A friend of mine has a small saw mill operation and specializes in domestic hardwoods, mostly he uses his contacts throughout the US to find trees that he thinks are likely to have unique figure or color. I’ve been lucky enough to be able to dig through his pile of large and small branch stock that he mills into roughly 3 inch slabs. I’ve completed two projects and am working on a third. I would love criticisms, and/or advice, on these as they are my first attempts at woodworking ...

Hand plane blade camber vs straight edge, Your preference?

06-16-2016 01:59 PM by stefang | 9 comments »

My personal opinionI have put a slight camber on all my hand planes. I haven’t been overly happy with the result. Yes, it’s easier to push the plane, but I just can’t see how a cambered blade can deliver a truly flat surface. Now I realize that many top woodworkers who have forgotten more about woodworking than I will ever know swears by cambered blades, but I’ve also read articles by other equally skilled and experienced woodworkers who prefer the straight edge...
