Building Dave's Stacking Chair #6: Day 3: Sanding and Prepping

07-22-2015 05:42 PM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

This morning I pegged the last 2 seat frames from yesterday and glued up another back piece. Onward! [Below] I used my official dovetail saw to cut the dowels flush with the side of the wood. [Below] I’m unsure if it helped, but I put a piece of duct tape on the side of the saw to try and keep the dowels microscopically proud of the surface and protect the wood from saw scratches. [Below] I was supposed to round over the inside tops of the sides before assembling the fr...

Nicholson style workbench #1: It begins

07-22-2015 04:58 PM by cfrance | 1 comment »

So after alot of contemplation and watching many, many youtube videos, I finally decided that my new workbench was going to be a sort of Nicholson styled bench. I downloaded sketchup, drew it out, and picked up the lumber. I probably should have taken more time to choose lumber with less/smaller knots, but I guess after I beat it up in a year or two the knots will only add to the character. I plan on making the top in two 4” thick slabs about 11” wide to make the glue up ...

Drill Press Starting Capacitor

07-22-2015 04:09 PM by bosum3919 | 11 comments »

I have an old Craftsman 2/3 HP drill press that I have been using for years and it suits my purpose for many small tasks. Recently, the starting capacitor went out. I can still start the press by hand, but the capacitor won’t carry the load to start it. All of the pertinent information is printed on the capacitor, so I orderd one through Amazon. I have had the same problem with ceiling fans and have replaced the capacitors from there as well. The problem arises in that it seems that all...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1594: Hunky Dory

07-22-2015 11:25 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I was sitting here this morning sipping my second cup of coffee and trying to think about something inspiring to write about today. Since I am still experiencing the lull that I mentioned yesterday, I fear that today's post would be bland and uninteresting. "Why then would I even choose to write?", you may ask.To be honest, I considered the possibility of skipping. Of course, that would be the easy and probably the most logical thing to do. While there is seemingly limitles...

Built-In Ironing Board Cabinet #2: Cabinet Assembled

07-22-2015 04:04 AM by Chuck McIntyre | 2 comments »

I kind of got away from the blog for a while. Mostly because I haven’t seemed to have had a lot of time to spend in the shop. I got the panels glued up this past weekend. Got the divider and shelves installed as well as the back. This cabinet project is my first attempt at making raised panel doors. I got the rails and stiles cut and the panels run through the router. I have a Triton 3.25 hp router mounted in a table. The Triton cut through that cherry like nobody’s business. D...

Why buy it when you can make it! #36: First hand-cut dovetail

07-22-2015 03:44 AM by paxorion | 5 comments »

Being bored one night, I decided to head down to my basement and give hand cutting a dovetail a whirl. I had never hand cut a dove tail before and drew the layout lines on a whim. After some work with a saw that was certainly not meant for hand cut dovetails, a coping saw meant for moulding not woodworking, and chiseling, I had my first (sloppy) dovetail. Say what you will, I’m pretty proud of winging it and learning a thing, two or two hundred for myself.

Why buy it when you can make it! #35: Basement Wall Cabinets [Part 2] - Done?...

07-22-2015 03:40 AM by paxorion | 0 comments »

It occurred to me that it’s been 2 months since I posted anything. I’m actually done with the basement wall cabinet build and install and posted it as a project in my gallery. All in all, if I had to time the build, at most 25% of the actual working time was spent on the actual construction of the cabinets and doors, 75% on the finishing (experimenting with thinning and spraying the 5 coats of finish used: 1x primer, 2x paint, 2x water-bourne polyurethane). I for one am certa...

Barnsley Reproduction Build #22: “A Horse, A Horse, my Kingdom for a Horse”. (Bodger's Ball Part 3)

07-22-2015 02:10 AM by stevo_wis | 2 comments »

“A Horse, A Horse, my Kingdom for a Horse”. Terry and I left Nottingham after the Bodger’s Ball and Liecester was right on our way south. Richard the Third was uncovered during construction of a parking lot last year. DNA testing plus the fact that he had been beheaded and had a hunch back proved that it was in fact Richard who had been buried for several hundred years after dying in battle. A new burial place was constructed in the Liecester Cathedral and it was dedicated ...
