Maple/oak project/desk #5: Clamps, I need CLAMPS

07-03-2015 02:19 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Time to do some glue ups. Took the clamps off of the dry fit. Plan was to start as small as I could, and work my way out from there. Last night, just two clamps, and some Elmers. Center divider got clamped into the front board. Let it sit overnight. Next morning, got a few items done. A router tabel set up to make pencil grooves, start and stop marks and locator marks for the round nosed coce bit. Had those same marks on the oak 2×2…..well they helped at first. One...

Update on my Search for a Charger for my Trend Airshield

07-09-2015 08:05 PM by cajunpen | 6 comments »

I posted a request for help yesterday. I have an older Trend Airshield and have misplaced my charger – the new charger is $60. The battery is a 3.6 volt battery with a male connection on the battery. I can find a “Smart Charger” for about $20. but the pieces that fits into the battery are all male. I need a female adaptor that is about 1.2mm in size – or another way to hook the charger to the battery. Any help will be appreciated. I have found informati...

Building Some Chevalets, a Class Action #3: Lots of Parts,Lots of Joinery

07-20-2015 12:56 AM by shipwright | 11 comments »

I guess I got lots done today although I didn’t get as far as I wanted to. (Do we ever?) There have been enough blogs on chevy construction and I’ve got lots of pictures so I’ll keep the text to a minimum and let the photos do the explaining. These are the cheeks for the sides of the columns in way of the arm clamps. I band sawed them to save time. Then, before I glued them on, I cut the part catching gullets on the column tops. ... and sanded them. ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1597: A Beautiful Day in My Neighborhood

07-27-2015 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I can think of many people who live in lovely places, yet sometimes take them for granted. I don't think we realize that we are doing this until for some reason or another (school, job, etc.) we are taken away from our homeland for any length of time and then return to it. It seems that we come 'home' and look at things with new eyes. We notice things that we hadn't paid attention to before. Things that were right there all the time. Coming from Chicago, I am perhaps more...

Baptist gallery

Last week Baptist (a nice and friendly Dutch tool shop for woodworkers) posted some pictures from my work on his gallery page. I have to admit that this makes me proud. This gallery site is only written in dutch. The shop however is also in german and english. See the flags in the right top.

Workshop setup #7: Clamp tidying

08-13-2015 12:13 PM by FlashG | 0 comments »

Yes, a topic close to all our hearts – how to keep our clamps stored efficiently but kept easily accessible. After realising that a previously-useless-seeming space could be used to hang clamps, and looking at many ways to do so, I grabbed some scrap, glued it, cut it, screwed it to more scrap, then screwed the whole lot on the wall. I’ll add some more jutting-out-bits so that the rest of the clamps can be hung on there too.

Fire in the hills

08-18-2015 03:36 AM by Nickdarr | 14 comments »

Unless you have been under a rock, you know there are fires burning throughout the west. I can sit on my porch and smell the smoke and see it in the air. It is sad to see all of the losses that are more devestating than just some board feet of lumber, like lives, homes, and businesses. But, being a woodworker, I am sad over the lumber as well. I have had the opportunity to live throughout the US. I have experienced natural disasters including floods, hurricanes, snowstorms, tornados, and ear...
