Christmas Gifts #1: Cell Phone Stand Prototype

11-06-2017 05:06 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

After performing an inventory of my hardwood storage and surveying different gift ideas on the Internet, I decided to make cell phone stands for Christmas gifts for many family members and a good friend. I started this project by making a prototype. I asked my Annie what she thought about it. She liked it! So the project is go… For the two pieces that makes this stand I was going to use 1/4 inch thick pieces of hardwood and their width will be 2 7/8 inches. This thickness ...

Capsray 9100 HVLP and gun rehab, part II #3: gun assembled and ready to go. this blog entry is now complete.

11-06-2017 01:37 AM by Holbs | 2 comments »

after purchasing new check valves, I re-assembled the gun and ran warm water though it while powered by the 4 turbines. Works like a charm! Am very glad I cleaned this Maxumm II (I know it’s a Maxumm II gun now with the hook broken off). Much more “umph” with the 4 turbines as compared to my single turbine $100 Summit HVLP system with plastic parts. Now, I understand how spraying finishes works with a gun such as how much material you can adjust via adjustment knob, how ...

Adventures in CNC routing #1: Honey-do sign test #1

11-05-2017 02:40 PM by Tooch | 5 comments »

Last year I purchased a CNC machine for our school, but didn’t really get passed some basic stuff with the stock files that came with it. I recently decided that I wanted the kids to get more exposure with it, but I first had to teach myself. I gotta tell ya, some people think creating things with a CNC machine is easy, but that is certainly not the case. I’m finding that it is a different kind of “hard”, with lots of time being spent setting up the files, creating ...

This is a follow up to Joe Lyddon’s forum topic about transferring images to wood: http://lumberjocks.com/topics/244825 Thanks to persistent help from Rob Castle, I finally found out how to do it on Word 2010 on my computer.This is needed so the image or text is a mirror image of the way you want it to be transferred so it will be the right way when you view it. In MS Word 2010, :click on INSERTClick on WORDARTClick on the top left A ( or anyone will work I think) a text box w...

The Quest for a Better Bench #5: Mortise and Tenon Joinery... Just writing that makes me feel like a SUPER WOODWORKER!!!

11-05-2017 12:56 AM by PlanBWoodworks | 1 comment »

DISCLAIMER!!! THis post only contains a small portion that relates to Mortise and Tenmon Joinery. It just made me feel all tingly to include that in my title. Sorry for misleading you. At the end of my last blog entry, my workbench top was in the glue up stage. I glued up the top in 4 sections that would allow me to combine 2 and BARELY be able to run them through the planer. I was shooting for a top that was 60” long and 25”wide. both 12 1/2” sections maxed out the capacity of my De...

11-04-2017 10:48 PM by htl | 19 comments »

I got my two wheel making jigs made a week or so back but never got around to testing them so it’s time to build some wheels. Will be making some 3” wheels so cut up some 3/4” & 1” lumber to 3 1/4”, then split the wood into 3/8” and 1/4”.I use my table saw to split the lumber cutting 1 3/4 or there about then flip and finish splitting the wood, helps keep the hands way from the blade.This comes out so smooth I don’t bother putting it thro...

A little time off #3: Time for a glue up

11-04-2017 10:25 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

First, I needed to make a bottom panel, and some grooves to fit the panels ( 2) into… Dry fit, to get the size of the panel…close.. need grooves, though.. Set up the Stanley 45 with the #13 groove cutter. Built a jig on the bench….so the sides would stay put.. Get one side grooved along both edges, the do the other long side….adjust things to hold the shorter ends.. Made a bunch of “noodles” Once all 8 grooves were done, I checked how t...

Underway again...finally #6: College Football Day freebie haul

11-04-2017 06:48 PM by JohnTM | 3 comments »

Today being college football day and the area experiencing record setting heat for November as well as early morning fog making humidity uncharacteristically uncomfortable outside between 7-and-11 this morning, I don’t plan to do any work on the workbench today. Instead, I took a ride out to my “favorite”/go-to free pallet place and picked up some goodies – even made 2 runs as the Prius can only hold so much.I got plywood! 3 sheets somewhere between 3’x6’ a...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #4: Shop made tenoning jig, legs machined

11-04-2017 03:28 PM by Reinan | 1 comment »

After considering my options on how to achieve the interlocking bridle joint with the aprons and legs, and realizing my 8” dado stack want going to have the depth necessary. I made up a quick tenoning jig from a scrap of plywood and some pieces of red oak. Ended up pretty decent and rode the fence fairly securely, not the smoothest but manageable. Joints came out well with the single blade though I need to clean up the bottom of the cut with a chisel before assembly. Aprons fit ...
