My First Workbench #40: Leg Vise Chop Carving Finished

09-09-2013 09:21 PM by RaggedKerf | 10 comments »

Well, after two sweaty hours out in the shop today in ridiculous humidity, I was able to wrap up the last of the carving and put on the final touches. Here it is with the basic shaping and sanding complete. Then I went back with two different sized nail sets and gently hammered in a scale patter on the dragon heads and necks: And finally used my carving chisels and chip carving knife to cut the year numbers. Now it’s time to put a coat of clear shellac on the car...

Weekend Warrior Woodworking Magazine #15: Joinery Bench Top: Cutting Tenons With a Festool TS 75-Video

09-28-2013 05:20 AM by James | 0 comments »

I needed to cut the tenon in the top of the joinery bench that the aprons for the side will attach too. I wanted to try something different, the top was too wide for the table saw and I have not made a dado sled yet. I decided to use the TS 75 and MFT/3 to cut the tenon and used Lie-Nielsen Rabbet plane to clean up the tenons. I could have just used a router along with a guide rail or edge guide but I really like to experiment with cutting joinery using different methods. I also decided that ...

shop jigs/furniture/fixtures #4: Table saw base #2

10-23-2013 05:12 AM by Tugboater78 | 3 comments »

continuing with the build Had some trouble with my phone so missing some aspects of what the next round entailed… grumble So i left off with frame assembled and sitting on top of the saw. When i got in shop today, after going to acquire some carriage bolts etc, i started with drilling some holes. I took time last night figuring out where the casters should be placed. marked my holes with the bottom up, and run small pilot holes through. Flipped the case over, used a 3/4&...

Workshop Development #67: Weekend project list. Prepping for Christmas and a happy new year too!

12-20-2013 05:04 PM by dbhost | 4 comments »

It is WAY past time that these walls got buttoned up, the weather is supposed to be warmish, but WET this weekend. So my plans are more or less made for me. Assuming LOML doesn’t change my schedule for me.. #1. Finish smoothing out the rough spots on the concrete slab in the living room. Knock out the tile by the back door, and level / smooth that area too. Double check for low spots, fill as necessary. #2. Clear out niche corner of shop where mechanics box is, wiggle into the cor...

1969 Craftsman Radial Arm Saw Project #3: An End to the 1969 Craftsman RAS Project

01-07-2014 06:32 PM by AngieO | 17 comments »

Ok… so… Lets face it. I don’t like the RAS. It’s HUGE! Takes up ALOT of room. It’s too heavy for me to even move an inch on my own. It needs some tuning up, a new table, and… well…. all of that is telling me one thing… I don’t really have an interest in it. Not to mention the fact that the danger of it makes me even more against keeping it. LOL…. So… two things have been going on. I’ve not had the room so I moved the R...

Coop update

01-24-2014 05:48 AM by mervillehomesteader | 3 comments »

Just thought I would add some shots of the doors and interior as per requests. The thing is only a few months old and already getting the creepy barn cobwebs hanging from the rafters. The chickens really dig it and we are now getting about 16 eggs a day. Happy, happy chickens Heres the dutch doors at the front. Not a bad challenge, just 1/2 inch cedar panels sandwiched with more 1/2 inch cedar for the rails and stiles. This is the roost. It is simply attached with a screw at each rafter...

End table set - build #12: Finishing the tops

02-09-2014 03:18 PM by Ottacat | 1 comment »

The first step was to dye to mahogany frame components of the tops. As I indicated in my last post I found the GF light brown dye stain gave the look I wanted. I dyed them using a towel and obviously had to be careful not to get the dye on the veneered centre panel. Having the 1/8” ebony inlay as a buffer was key. I would apply the dye stain with one towel and then wipe it down with a clean one. It took a bit of work not to have overlap marks on each corner but the GF line of dye stains...

Cherry sideboard #4: Glue up starts

02-25-2014 12:53 AM by SFDCapt | 0 comments »

I went to my secret stash yesterday and picked up enough of the cherry boards to finish up this project. After I got it home I spent some time sorting it and figuring out which pieces I wanted to mill into the side panels. This morning instead of getting a good start on those side panels I decided to rearrange some of my shop to make room for a new…... you’ll have to wait till it gets here! Once the shop was put back together I started milling the 4/4 stock down to size. I...

Dust Collection #1: 6" HVAC duct supports

03-16-2014 03:46 AM by Holbs | 4 comments »

after completing my Thien Baffle (well, a couple more things to do to it but has to wait til ducting is 100%).. next tackle is the HVAC 6” runs and duct supports. I’m directly running from the Thien Baffle inlet horizontally across my 2 car garage and branching off 8 6” wye’s and 2 4” wye’s along the 2”x12” board attached to the wall (which is hiding my horizontal electrical runs). Today, I spent time fabricating the 6” supports with the...

Sealing Pine for Outdoor Use

Hello again Can anyone tell me the best way to seal and waterproof, as best as possible, the legs of my Adirondack chairs. These are old chairs that I want to save for a few more years as I made 2 new ones to replace these with cypress. Thanks as always… Al
