Admittedly, Tow Mater chairs and well executed portable work benches are both more interesting and practical than my fancy decoration but I am always happy when I build a tool that is received well by my woodworking peers. This chisel plane project is particularly special to me because where I have had several occasions to want one, I have never been willing to purchase one, nor had it occurred to make one until I saw that several other Lumberjocks have made their own and done a nice job o...
Another in my Show and Tell series. I showcase a quick & dirty storage cabinet that I made for my wife, as she threatened to go to Ikea!
So I blew out a hose a couple of weeks ago due to keeping the system under pressure and turned on. Had the compressor run constantly, good thing is I was only out of the house for a couple of hours. But… I had to fix it, and prevent a return episode. Well, the video attached will give you a good idea of my fix… https://youtu.be/xZ-NomZNjC8
I think I have completed the new layout for the woodshop. What do you think? Now to figure out the shop vacuum system next.
Working on the roof Still having fun trying to get a feel for the roof shape and just not happy with it but the builds not over yet. First I wanted to get the wheels put together so I would be able to see it in it’s full shape.I left the tongues long so I could adjust it if need be later.The caboose felt like they were a little short so will be able to adjust for that by making these a tad longer if need be. Gluing up the roof and over head windows. Now I’m just shavi...
This table is out of spec and has a low spot which causes it to get scratched up every time you attempt to angle the fence. Did some measurements this morning and it’s .012”-.015” low where the fence gets attached. IF the fence wasn’t so massive and it had the ability to shift relative to the mounting the way (hate to keep harping on it) the Incra miter gauges work I could loosen it and slide the fence or adjust it up/down to prevent this from happening.Pictures at the...
Last weekend 11th annual Woodworking fest took place in Sokolniki park, Moscow. 11 years ago this event began as a meeting of several passionate woodworkers in a private workshop. Each year number of participants was increasing. Last year more than one thousand persones from different regions of Russia participated. I guess this time number of people increased even more. It was first time when I decided to join this event.On the fest various masterclasses, competitions, exibitions, tools, mac...
In this episode, I make the back from some maple stock. The back is ship lapped and will be installed in a groove in the back legs I also make a solid cherry top with a curved front. Now I will say I completely screw up the first attempt by, well just being really stupid and not paying attention to what I was doing, and using the wrong bit in my router. I do show how I recover from this mistake in the end. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’...
My shop is in a state of chaos. My wife insists that it’s a garage. But I know better … than to talk back to her. So I go out into my shop, close the door and whisper really loudly, “IT’S A SHOP, WOMAN!”.. So, my shop is in chaos, but I’m calm. Time is on my side now that I’m no longer working fifties and sixties for the man. I come home each day, quickly change into some clothes I care little about, I get to work. I love it. And I’m frustrat...
But, had quite a bit of work to do first.. Lid came out of the clamps..voids on the ends filled. Gaps filled and sanded. Had one filler piece pop out, back into the clamps it went. Got set up for the bottom rebate, used a Wards 78 to mill it. Had to milled a few grooves to add the cutter storage dividers. Needed two narrow dados. Thought I’d try the 45 to cut them…. Couldn’t get the skates close enough. Could only get one of the spurs to move. Square and...
