dust stuff #11: Time to get back in the shop

06-20-2012 12:46 AM by JoeyG | 5 comments »

Just wanted to say hi and let everyone know I will be beginning new projects soon. The basement flood problem has been fix. New tile floor is done and today I went and picked up a little Oak and Walnut for my next couple of projects. I finished up the floor at the end of last week and have taken this week off to hang out and play with my kids. It’s been a lot of fun, but I am itching to make some saw dust. The first project will be a shadow box for a Air Force Saber. This will be ...

Recreating Rohlfs - Tall Back Chair - Part 4

08-02-2012 10:17 PM by Woodbridge | 1 comment »

I have been making some progress on my reproduction of Charles Rohlfs Tall Back Chair and have started carving the various parts. Along with the Tall Back Chair I have also been working on another reproduction of Rohlfs 1898 Desk Chair. I have posted my first Desk Chair reproduction. After seeing the original on my recent trip to New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art I wanted to build a second version more closely resembling the original. I had not planned to start this chair so soon...

You Design It, I Build It project #5: Start Designing

08-17-2012 06:31 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

Sorry for the long delay in between the voting results and this. I have to start designing the hall table that won. Before I start sketching some designs I want to know which way to go. Since this is a table that YOU are designing, I have to ask you. I will be adding another poll to the side bar called “2 square, or not 2 square”. Simply put, Do you want the design to be curvy or have crisp clean square lines? I’ll give a week for votes and then get started with designing. www.asliceofwoodwor...

Quick tip to find an unknown angle

09-02-2012 07:04 PM by nobuckle | 1 comment »

I’m restoring an old jack plane and I need to make a new tote for it. The recess for the tote has angle at one end, this helps to lock the tote in place. The problem is that I don’t know what that angle is. Well, I came up with a method of finding that angle. Perhaps this tip will work for you as well. Thanks for watching.

tool chest saga #2: Done......well almost

09-19-2012 10:13 PM by theoldfart | 11 comments »

Finally completed the interior. Three sliding trays and saw storage on the lid. Tray bottoms are white oak shiplapped and pine sides The drawer slips are red or white oak (whatever was available). I used cut nails for their holding power. They were a bugger to get out when I had to redo one bottom so I figure the bottoms are good for some time. The ring pulls are shutter pulls from a local blacksmith. I had a bit of a disaster soon after filling the chest, a gutter failed and emptied...

My world of turning #6: We are Santa's Elves...

10-07-2012 12:22 PM by JJones98042 | 4 comments »

With the Summer drawing to a close, I wanted to get a head start on my Christmas gift making so that I don’t end up in a position where I’m out of time and feeling rushed (I know how easily that happens). The bulk of the gifts are pens that are now complete. I had setup a little production line to make the pens and learned a few tricks along the way. Lessons learned: Since I was doing over a dozen pens, it helped to do things in stages. I made all the decisions about kits and...

Misc. Shop Stuff #10: A Stanley #50 in the House!

10-24-2012 02:45 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 26 comments »

Won a Stanley #50 on the ‘bay a few weeks ago. It had irons and a user-made box, but alas, a single rod. I sat the body of the plane in Evaporust and began a local search for a #50 rod. A machine shop in my small town took the challenge, and tonight delivered (to my door, no less!) old and new! So it’s in the box and complete! Does it work? Cuts with an iron ‘out of the box’ show promise! So an agile plough plane is in the ho...

Workshop Development #61: Been a while. Starting to get the sheet rock on the walls. Planning the next stages.

11-26-2012 05:53 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

I’ve been busy, so I haven’t been in my shop much lately, well that’s not exactly true, but it IS true that I haven’t gotten done what I want to yet. After scheduling the time to get a rented hoist, then discovering the hoist won’t work for holding drywall up against the studs while I start the screws, I got a helping hand from my lovely bride, who could only go so far with it. I need to get some volunteers to help me out here! Long story short, we wrestled...

A Guitar for Daniel #3: Just got real

12-13-2012 06:17 AM by Dan Lyke | 2 comments »

On the router table, cleaned up the face of the peghead and finished the rest of the truss rod routing, and drilled the hole through the neck for the electronics (totally stoked, I drilled the diagonal by hand and managed to hit with my ¼” pilot hole dead on, then worked up to ½” total). Then with a deep breath and a few carefully placed Dominos, glued the sucker up. Daniel is way stoked.
