Scrap Iron Wood |Lathe #5: Adding pulleys and indexing plate to the spindle.

05-16-2016 12:53 AM by bushmaster | 2 comments »

So far the lathe was built without any need use a tape measure etc. just a stick would have been enough, Today we need to use fine measurements down to .001 inch. micrometer needed, but one could just machine to fit. The first thing is to make two collars with a 1 5/8 inch inside diameter. I think I used 2 inch stock from making the spindle insert. Drill and bore. I almost forgot to drill a hole to make a key way, since I do not have a broach. The center of the hole you drill is the o...

Segmented vase #3: Rings sanded and ready for glue up.

05-16-2016 12:21 AM by Julian | 0 comments »

All the rings are finished and now it was time to sand them flat. Due to the large number of rings I used the drum sander. Here are all the rings dry stacked in order. There will also be a lid for this vase. I use a glue block and faceplate as I glue up the rings.

Cherry Nightstand #4: Case Assembly

05-15-2016 06:45 PM by ilyac | 1 comment »

Will all the mortise and tenons done I could start putting the cases together. I started with the front and back, once those were done I put the frame together and then cut the long center divider piece and those matching mortise and tenons, for the sides to fit since my mortise location was not dead on. Between all the dry fits and moving around I noticed that the top mortises were starting to weaken, in retrospect I should have left more material on the top of the piece and it’...

Cloth Nail Aprons #9: New Estate Sale Season, More Aprons!

05-15-2016 03:24 PM by artsyfartsy | 5 comments »

Hello Friends, I hope everyone made it through the winter unscathed. A new estate season is here and I’ve already begun to pick up more aprons. Sometimes I don’t need an estate sale to pick up an apron, sometimes they just fall in my lap. Such is the case with these new additions I have. And, I can’t wait to tell the stories about these aprons. First Apron was given to me by my son. I happen to see an apron on e-bay and was telling him about it. I vowed to never pu...

Transparent Throat PLate

05-15-2016 02:55 AM by Woodwrecker | 13 comments »

I obtained some high end Acrylic by chance that is tough as nails and made some zero clearance throat plates out of it that are the same thickness as my factory plate.With my R4512 saw having the real thin throat plates, this stuff works out great.I’ve already made several in different angles for raised panel door work and such.It doesn’t sag or bend and the blade cut through it beautifully.I use some duct tape to hold down the edges.And, with a 4×8 sheet of it, I’ll ma...

Segmented vase #2: Method for making segmented rings

05-15-2016 02:44 AM by Julian | 2 comments »

The first thing I do before cutting any wood is to find a shape that I find appealing. Then I make a full sized drawing on graph paper. I use this to do all the calculations for the each ring. You can purchase software to do this but I prefer the manual method; plus it doesn’t cost any $. I use the “wedgie” sled by Jerry Bennett. You can find his videos on YouTube which explains how to make the sled and how to cut various types of segments.Certain rings with the trian...

Shop stuff #50: Finally, I got around to some editing

05-15-2016 02:37 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Yes, it is true. I have been lax on getting videos edited and put up. I have an ever increasing amount of footage to go through and had to cut that pile down a bit. It gets a bit intimidating at times when you see how many files there are. This job was a bit of a head scratcher. Tracking down a buzz and figuring out how to fix it. The school is pretty happy with the work, so all is OK. No, I am not changing my format to a guitar repair channel. I will leave that to more experience...

Pens with no Lathe or Drill Press

05-15-2016 02:01 AM by ShogunJimi | 1 comment »

In this You-Tube video, I challenge myself to making a pen kit without a lathe or a drill press. But, let me be honest, I just don’t have those tools. The slim-line pen kits came from Rockler and they were on sale over the holiday season. The wood that was used is Cocobolo. I hope you enjoy this video and make time to be creative. here is the link to the video: –
