Ready, Fire, Aim: Twisted Laminations Cane #3: Three Finished Products

1256 days ago by Lee Barker | 5 comments »

Three coats of Daly’s ProFin provide the splash here. The spiral cane came out ok, but perhaps could have used a little more contrast in the species to really pop. I consider it a successful one-off right out of the chute, to mix a metaphor. The straight laminations are attractive, but I don’t see the colors of the handle coordinating well with the browns of the shaft. I’ll consider carefully those hue relationships next time and glue up a couple or three different opt...

Tool gloat: UNISAW! #7: Rail and fence adjustment

1230 days ago by ic3ss | 0 comments »

I decided the easiest way to get the space to accommodate the guide tube was to file down the locking cam. I found a pretty slick way to do this while ensuring that I don’t file any flat spots on the cam. I stuck a small file down in between the cam and the locking shoe and used the shoe to press the file against the cam, and ran the locking handle up and down. I think I filed off about 0.10”, just enough to make the difference. Then I had to drill and tap holes to mount th...

Dovetailed Hand Tool Cabinet #5: Half lap door frame, glass panel, glass stops...

1217 days ago by JasonD | 3 comments »

I didn’t take too many pictures on the day that I built the door frame. This is particularly because it was the first time that I made a frame using half lap joints and I completely hate them and never want to use them again because they make me feel completely incompetent. I did everything the way I normally do to cut a clean, square shoulder and cheek; just like when I cut tenons. I made sure the lumber was flat and square. I used the reference face and edge to score the lines to d...

Delta Mortiser 14-651 #1: My new tool

1205 days ago by LegendInMyOwnMind | 2 comments »

My Delta Mortising Machine, the 14-651, arrived a couple of days ago. I got it into the house by myself using a furniture dolly. Waiting for my oldest son to come visit so I can get it into the basement shop. Plan on making a dedicated table similar to my Table Saw Table and Router Table. I like to make all of my tables so that the work surface is at the same height. That way the material handling equipment (read, rollers) doesn’t need to be adjusted between machines. The rollers I h...

shoe bench #1: Identifying a need

1136 days ago by coloradoclimber | 3 comments »

I live in a house with 7 people, 5 of them teenagers and 3 of the females. We have a LOT of shoes in our home. We don’t wear shoes in the house so we always kick off our shoes right in the entryway as we come in the front door. The result is often a huge pile of mixed up shoes. Here is a picture of just some of the shoes. This is after I cleaned up most of the shoes after throwing a fit and after everyone has already left the house for the day, this is just the small remainder of sh...

Shop Update #27: Quick news: Wiring passed inspection!

1110 days ago by TheKingInYellow | 0 comments »

I officially have 220v in the garage, and I can fire up the new Grizzly… As soon as I finish building it :) Had a bit of a rough family day and ended up having a lot less time in the garage then I planned, so the saw is not assembled beyond the first extension table being installed. So far, so good! Machining is top notch, tables are dead flat, and assembly so far has been easy and well documented in the instructions.

Boot and Glove Chest

1094 days ago by Toolz | 3 comments »

My wife (Laura) wanted a chest for our main entry area to store winter boots and gloves and scarves out of site. I had a few pieces of 1 3/4” x 1 3/4” walnut that had 1/2” dadoes already routed on two sides. Looking through my wood stash I decided to use some of my “mystery” wood. I really believe it to be flat-sawn sycamore. At first I thought the dark lines in the sycamore were burn marks from the horizontal sander but I soon found out that it was just a wonde...
