Tools I scored at the Flea market

03-23-2012 12:14 PM by gavinzagreb | 4 comments »

If you haven’t seen it, I did a blog about all the stuff you can get at Zagreb’s Huge flea market. http://lumberjocks.com/gavinzagreb/blog Here I’ll show you what I bought. Everything together, 2 planes, a chisel, small file, and a hand drill. I think the lot was about US$35The hand drill reminded me of the first one I used as a kid, so bought it for my 5 year old son. The chisel is 2 cherries brand from Germany. 1 site said they are some of the best in the world. ...

Workshop Lighting Upgrade

05-05-2012 09:19 PM by BlankMan | 8 comments »

I had a ballast going out in one of my 8’ florescent fixtures in the basement so I decided to take the ballast out of an 8 footer in my workshop and put a new electronic ballast in it and use its old ballast in the fixture that’s having a problem. Shop upgrade! Then I got to thinking about HO (high output) florescent lights so decided to check them out. Turns out HO blubs are twice as bright lumen wise as regular ones and more efficient. 80 lumens per watt (110 watt 8800 lumen...

Veneering plywood with thick "veneer". What glue to use.

06-05-2012 02:34 PM by riooso | 5 comments »

I would appreciate some advice putting veneer on 1/2” plywood. I wish to build some shelves using some shop made “veneer”. I have some home grown black walnut I will be using in the project. I made a trial shelf in which I used 1/4” veneer. I only veneered one side of a piece of 1/2” birch plywood using standard Titebond white glue but the 24” X 16” board cupped a fair amount. It may be that if I had done both sides that I would not have had this prob...

Laminated Walnut Bowl #2: Finishing up the outside

07-20-2012 11:59 PM by kweinert | 4 comments »

After I got home from work today I headed out to the hot (over 100F) workshop to complete the outside. I started sanding and then I got the gouge out again because I figured it would be easier to smooth off the top while it was in its most stable position. I then worked up from 150 to 320 sandpaper, but while doing the 320 I noticed that I hadn’t quite gotten the transition from the body to the lip good enough. So I put down the 320 and picked up the 150 again and worked on that spo...

Seven Drawer Dresser #2: Ready for the Finishing Room

08-18-2012 04:53 PM by hammcrafted | 2 comments »

1, 2 – skip a few – 99, 100 – skip a few more – 175, 176 dovetails later, quite a bit of sanding and the dresser (or is it a chest of drawers?) is ready for it’s paint job. There are only two parts left to make – the drawer pulls and the tills that will go in the small drawers. I’m figuring that the pulls and tills will keep me busy while the paint dries. The inside will be finished with shellac. I only have another three days at school for the summe...

I have up loaded the installation instructions for the sprocket in a new bench build and would love it if people could take a look at it and let me know if it all makes sense. You can find it here. https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B69Qc1QBCySoQTMzN3N2VnN6aTA Thanks for your time.
