Barnsley Reproduction Build #11: Diagonal Tenons Almost There

12-24-2014 03:57 AM by stevo_wis | 3 comments »

The diagnonal tenons can be shaped on the table saw almost identically to the way a 90 degree tenon would be made. I cut the inside cheek cut very carefully and then quickly nibble out to the tenon’s tip.Because the shoulder will hide where the tenon actually enters the mortise, i can cut the tenons to width with the bandsaw. The tenons can slightly narrower than the mortises as they will match up to end grain which gives little glue strength, and they are covered in any case. after ...

Scrolling with Asthma #2: Follow up Number 1

01-21-2015 08:18 PM by jerrells | 3 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...

Peterbilt truck #14: Rear wheel rims

03-03-2015 12:40 PM by Dutchy | 12 comments »

A lot of picture,s Making the rear wheel rims. Standard you use an axle peg for mounting a wheel on the axle. On the picture below you can see this on the left side. This time I made a long dowel and with a press fit it is glued in the wheel. You can see this on the right side of the picture: I made the rims out of two pieces. The first one is a disk. After sanding it to the right diameter I had to drill a lot of holes in it. Total I needed 16 rims and each rim disk has 21 holes and th...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #42: Lever Router Lift...Done!

03-08-2015 12:05 AM by PhilBello | 2 comments »

Two weeks ago I started preparing the parts for Jay Bates, Lever Router Lift Extension, I had a pile of plywood and some bits of metal, then went down with the flu, (thanks Mother in law!), which brought it to an abrupt halt for a week. It isn’t often I follow a plan, I’ll use it and adapt it to my own needs. However on this occasion, other than changing some of the dimensions to fit on my saw table extension wing, which is a couple of inches shorter than Jay’s, but t...

Rare markings

03-11-2015 01:13 AM by Boatdude | 5 comments »

These are a couple of the bowls I have made from a Black Gum Log. To me I think it turns great. I was told the tree had been down for 2 years but I have my doubts it was pretty wet still and the bowls warped after turning. This is my first post to lumberjocks so I would like to say HELLO !

Shaker Style End table #5: Getting things ready for a drawer..

03-15-2015 04:19 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, thanks to being allowed back at my “day job”, not too much has been done. I did get the stretcher glued into place.. And the front and back edges of the top jointed down level with the bread board edges Let the glue set up for a day or two ( Doctor visits and tests ) then attached the top. I figured it would be easier to do it now, rather than wiggle in past the runners for the drawer. Got the front of the drawer sized and fitted to the table. So I decided to...

Dust Collection #4: Connections

03-19-2015 06:50 PM by Notw | 1 comment »

I ran a straight section of 4” ducting over my table saw and dropped it down behind my garage door opener motor. I used two 45 degree fittings to make my 90 degree turn down. I would have liked to drop down further but I didn’t want my lowest point of the run to be any lower than the height of my garage door. To get the rest of the way down I dropped a 4” flex duct I got from Penn State Industries (part #D08C). Having 13 foot tall ceiling screwing the strapping into the ceiling to hang th...

Shop's Log #21: Alabama Snow and the Meaning of Life

03-22-2015 11:11 PM by terryR | 27 comments »

Hi everyone, I’ve decided to try a new format for Blogs for a while and see the response. I’ve been reading Paul Sellers’ blogs nearly every day, and enjoy his ramblings on tools, woodworking, and life in general. So, thought I’d start sharing more of my shop life instead of focusing on one build. Since I’m such a slow typist, I’m always behind on sharing recent projects from my shop anyway. Maybe this unrestrained format will let me introduce builds in ...
