Using a toothed blade on the side of a box

09-11-2017 12:47 AM by knockknock | 0 comments »

Using a toothed blade to cleanup and flush the sides of a box. The side after glue up:Note: I purposefully made the pin board baseline short, so the tail board is proud. The side after using the toothed blade:Note: I planed with the grain and against the grain, and used the plane skewed. Then a few strokes with a smoother to remove the toothing marks: The lid side toothed:Note: I have not beveled the lid yet, so the lid fits tight. Finally the sliding lid box:Note: Relief bevel...

sort-of turning a bowl.

09-09-2017 11:26 PM by Blake Haskins | 1 comment »

So I have been turning bowls for a while, and have become quite competent at this. However a while back I had a bowl that kept breaking, and every time I would have to put it on the lathe and return the mortise for the chuck, as when I fixed it, it would be out of round. eventually I ended up with a mortise bigger than my chuck, so I put the project away, However in this video I attempt to revamp the project, but it just broke again.

Walnut & Cherry, new project #3: Stanley 45 time...

09-09-2017 01:53 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, I have the Stanley 45 all set up….need to mill a few tongues on the end pieces.. Called a “Match” cutter, cuts a 3/16” wide tongue, for a tongue and groove joint… Fence sits below the cutter. As this were designed to mill up to 4/4 stock, a 3/4” thick piece will have a bit of overhang. I raised the depth stop up, out of the way, as the cutter has it’s own. I used this set up, to hold the end pieces still, long enough to mill the edg...

Delta 46-715 Lathe Hack

09-08-2017 07:26 PM by denverdan | 1 comment »

My lathe has been working great since I rebuilt the pulley system with one exception. Sometimes it’s really hard to take the chuck off of the spindle. On the original pulley there were indexing holes and a indexing plunger lock that would lock the spindle allowing the chuck to come off after use. Since my pulleys didn’t have the holes there wasn’t a way to lock the spindle. Not a huge issue, but kind of a PIA. Normally I would use a couple wrenches and eventually it...

He is an off-shore worker, so he is one month on and one month off. During that first month he had to go to work and leave his wife alone to handle everything. I went over an helped her install a garbage disposal and dishwasher. Just small projects to help her get a working home. One day while we were mucking out our houses, my friend’s wife calle...

As I sit here and begin writing this morning, I realize just how much things have changed since I began blogging several years ago. What began as early morning conversations between you all and myself regarding what the plans were for my day and what the previous day had brought to me has now evolved into something a bit different. In those early days of writing, I was striving to be successful and prove that success not only to others but mainly to myself. I had started writing at a time whe...
