Hermit House Woodworking - Starting from Scratch #3: My Second Order: Screws, braces, hinges, and gate bolts.

Again, not too flashy or exciting, but with this purchase I have all the hardware I should need to do the ten coops we need, with some left over. The only thing we may need is a latch for the top of the house part of the the coops. I’m thinking of a hinged top for easy access and cleaning. Step by step :D

Nights are long and Winter longer here in Scandinavia. The project is sourced from https://woodgears.ca/combolock/index.html and plans are available for purchse there. A reader made a wooden ‘safe’ to go along with the lock: https://woodgears.ca/combolock/ramsay.html View on YouTube

Mini trim planes #1: More plane inspiration from Mads

06-27-2015 06:26 AM by icemanhank | 0 comments »

My latest tools are these tiny trim planes. Again thanks Mads Felding for the inspiration.They are made from Jarrah and a really lovely figured piece of Banksia; all wood came from the scrap bin. I made two to use up all the timber.The blade is cut from an old 2nd hand Stanley plane using a Dremel. I still have to make another blade, insert the brass pin and design a wedge.I will post pics of the finished articles as soon as I have them finished.

Hermit House Woodworking - Starting from Scratch #2: My First Wood Order

06-27-2015 01:15 AM by Ted Ewen | 3 comments »

So, not terribly exciting on the face of it, but I’ve placed my first order for wood: 16×4.2 meters of 45mm x 95mm, untreated20×4.2 meters of 38mm x 57 mm, treated Thats enough for 8 sawhorses (though I will only be building 4) and an unknown number of coops, but at least I get to play around now. At 69 cents per 4.2m, I can afford to be profligate. Yay!

Next I’ll be mounting the beer holder, attach the hinges and attaching the 2 lengths of chain to each side to keep the scoreboard upright..

What I learned Making Tongue Drums

06-26-2015 08:05 PM by GnarlyErik | 7 comments »

Thanks for your interest in the tongue drums - I apologize but I did not keep precise dimensions for my tongue drums. I made about six in total, mostly as experiments to discover how the various materials and sizes worked. I made some with red oak sound boards and pine sides, one with a mahogany board and oak sides, one with a hard maple and etc. I gave all but this one of away so no longer have them around to measure, but the sound boards on all of them were of a similar size. I have ...
