As I’ve mentioned, the stand is essentially a direct implementation of Christopher Schwarz's $175 Workbench. My shelf is different, and I changed some part dimensions and locations slightly, but it’s the same stand. This rendering shows some details about the locations of the stringers and stretchers. It doesn’t show the location of the top-most hole in each front leg, but it’s 2” top-to-center. The stand required four 2”x8” yellow pine boar...
I am not sure what the wood , and if you think you know what it is let me know. My first bowl is the same wood as what I’m coring out now. It will be a few months before they are ready to be finished. most of these bowls are ” 8 1/2 by ” 3—4” deep. Here is a finished bowl.
Today I thought I’d stop cutting after the second sheet in order to put the puzzle together to see what we have. Here is the front foot: And the rest fit together so far, although I might reshape the seat once it’s glued up. It’s fun to see all of the pockets and bolt holes being drilled in the passes before the profiles; the only thing I couldn’t do on the shopbot was the angled pocket where the back supports joins the underside of the seat. Planning on ...
I have been saving up some cash over the last two years to continue to outfit my shop. I have been waiting on a few tools, and finally purchased a scroll saw last week that came up on sale. She is an Excalibur Special edition with stand and foot control.Sorry I am sick as a dog this weekend and can’t get out to do any photos, so pics from the net I made a cedar shelf for the base from old fencing and I purchased Kathy Wise’s Intarsia for Beginners book. Have been drooling...
Hello My Loyal LumberJock Followers!! Finishing off previously, I told you that Nouveau Gal’s bouquet would be next on the agenda … and how fitting for this to happen with Spring now starting to bloom all over the place!! Her bouquet (seen through all that tape!) is full of grapes, flowers and leaves. At least the grape clusters are safely tucked away until needed … but now I have a whole bunch of flowers to make! And I say a whole bunch, because I definitely wan...
NOT A REVIEWA couple of years ago I bought this nice disk sander with the trademark ‘Woodfast’. This was once a venerable Australian brand of quality machinery with a full range of woodworking equipment. The Chinese bought the name and it is now a much lesser quality, although not of the worst sort. This looked like a great machine to me. It ran smoothly had enough power, was equipped with a brake, etc. The one thing I forgot to check out was how changing sanding disks was done. T...
Many peoples ask us how easy it is to clean up Old Brown Glue. One of the things I really love about hot hide glue and liquid hide glue, is it cleans up easily AND without damaging the finish Here is a video on repairing antiques and conserving the finish It does also work on more fragile finishes. On the post regarding our treasure box i explain that often in french furniture, with french polish finish, the pieces are finished before glueing, there fore all the corners and...
I got this old jointer for basically nothing and I want to try restoring it
This is what the signs look like after sand blasting with the grain frame. Then the green background color is sprayed on after several coats of primer. It takes on a grained look like wood. Next step is the lettering colors and borders. Thanks for looking.
We last ended with the second dovetail and the end caps mortised for the tool well ends. After a week of no progress in the shop I finally had some time this weekend to get something done. To start I needed to cut the remaining dovetails so I would know where the dados should stop to not be seen on the out side of the bench. I am sooooo glad this is over with. I would love to say I got better with each one but I really didn’t. I did learn something new on each one but the mista...
