Auger handle restoration #1: Assessment

01-22-2015 08:12 PM by woodcox | 0 comments »

This will be a new venture for me in turning and blogging my work, so I’ll try to keep it as detailed as possible. Lately, some aspects of green woodworking have become intriguing for me and the list of “I want to try that someday” is becoming long and forgotten. I have started with some spoon carving and hatchet work (from the log) to finished fixtures, or the scrap pile. I think a shrink pot is a great project to try by hand, aside from the initial chainsaw work. Shr...

Nakashima Inspired Walnut Slab Table #4: Finished (Almost)

01-22-2015 03:31 PM by Marshall | 7 comments »

I spent the better part of the last two weeks applying Arm R Seal to the table. The table top got four brushed coats of full strength Arm R Seal on each side. Between each coat I buffed with a 1000 grit festool platin pad. I then wiped on a 50/50 mix of Arm R Seal and Naphtha on each side. Here is the top after the fourth coat: And after the final wipe on coat: The base got five coats of wiped on Arm R Seal/Mineral Spirits 50/50 mixture: Finally, it was time to attach the b...

Morris Chair #4: Fear and Loathing Part 2

01-22-2015 01:49 AM by Luddite | 4 comments »

23 Jan 2015 Update from somewhere up the dark river of no return. Spent some time repairing the dewalt and porter cable sanders (new pads,dust bags and switches). Work like new now. No more flying discs about the shop, this only enticed the shop cat into fits of apoplexy.Finished the fit for the corbels. Angled the back corbels to the slope of the leg top. Gee, it actually works. Rounded over the pieces for first chair and sanded them to 220. The mesquite and cherry really shine...

Complete Kitchen Remodel

01-21-2015 11:37 PM by Scott C. | 9 comments »

I spent the better of 2014 remodeling my kitchen. I did 95% of the work myself (by myself, my friends aren’t particularly handy). Here’s the details: DesignThe first phase of the project was designing a new layout for the kitchen. Our old kitchen, in addition to being outdated, was pretty cramped and hard for 2 people to work in. We had an eat in area originally, but since the dining room is right next to the kitchen I wanted to use that space to expand the main work area of th...

Basement Workspace / V8 Mini Workbench #21: Back in the saddle... Again

01-21-2015 10:33 PM by rhybeka | 13 comments »

Just a short one since I’ve only made slight progress. I’m happy with the re-cut of the long dog holes though – free handed those and they came out real nice. Probly due to all the practice! See the pics below in the comments. Shipwright had to fix them for me :) Looks like I’ll be cutting the dog holes once again so they match the bottom and top plywood. question is which to match them to if they are different??? ooooh boy! Addenum So after my faux pas the other...

Scrolling with Asthma #2: Follow up Number 1

01-21-2015 08:18 PM by jerrells | 2 comments »

So I had a visit with my breathing Doctor today. The simple fact is I have asthma and that can’t be fixed. Controlled is another matter. First you must know what are the “triggers: that set you off”. At this time I am not sure but will have allergy test later. The real issue is that what might make you cough or sneeze might send me to ER. It depends on many factors. In the short term, if I am in the shop I MUST have on dusk masks and the dust filters MUST be on. Like most...

Powermatic 1500 bandsaw

01-21-2015 07:54 PM by Bill1933 | 0 comments »

I recently purchased a PM1500 Powermatic Bandsaw. I set it up and everything was working fine. A couple of weeks later, I went to use it on a project and it wouldn’t turn on or start. I ck’d the manual and everything ck’s out. This machine has a magnet that controls the on switch that is supposedly for safety. I think this is my problem. I want to rewire the machine and bypass this feature which looks pretty straightforward from the wiring diagram in the manual. No one exce...
