Kitchen Tower #2: The Build

02-13-2010 12:53 AM by Morton | 1 comment »

I’ve completed my son’s Christmas present (ok, awhile ago!), which is a really cool “tower” that he can climb up into to see everything happening on the kitchen counter, and be involved himself. In the previous post on this topic, I went over the design phase and initial template-building. At that point, I was ready to start cutting up some plywood! I had on hand some pretty nice 3/4 plywood from the local supply store. Nothing fancy, but both sides are smooth...

A journey into the workshop. #53: Lost suction in my dust collector. Something to look out for!

03-23-2010 06:17 AM by dbhost | 4 comments »

So I was continuing with my planter box build tonight, and would up thinking, gee the air coming through the quick connect is sort of weak tonight, and I was verified when I made the first pass through the planer and the hose clogged up. Shut the system down, and started tracking down the culprit. It would appear that a single plastic Home Depot Bag got sucked up, somehow made its way past the Thien separator, and up to the cross piece in the impeller grate. Some cleaning was in order, and a ...

Found/Given Wood #2: 55kg of scribbly gum

04-05-2010 03:09 PM by Broda | 3 comments »

Hey everyone,pretty good score this time (for me anyway) My dad and I were out looking for some turning wood this afternoon. We’d been looking for ages when I suggested we have a look up a track where we found THIS last time. Good suggestion…. this is what I took home- this one weighed about 15 kg (33 pounds) Saw for scale this one weighs about the same, but its a bit shorter the beast- this one’s under 2 ft but weighs 25kg (55 pounds) This was ...

My "New" #8 Siegley Plane

04-20-2010 04:59 AM by mpmitche | 1 comment »

I just bought this #8 Siegley Plane. The blade is very nice and it has been a joy to use. I really didn’t have to do much other than sharpen it to get it going. It is definatley a workout to use though.

New Venture #2: Tooling,er Tuning up... finally getting some systems working

05-16-2010 06:16 AM by NedB | 2 comments »

Perhaps the biggest step in getting the shop ready for this new venture was setting up ‘Old Blue’. That’s my little one machine only chip collector, which I hadn’t set up since moving into my shop. Talk about feeling stupid about Not doing something. I guess it was just laziness, but I hadn’t hooked it up and had simply been sweeping up the chips for the little amount of work I had been doing. With the new board sideline that simply wouldn’t do, especial...

Playroom #3: Lighting Retrofit

06-12-2010 07:42 PM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

So as I previously posted in Let there be more light I added a lamp to my daughters playhouse. I had just used some liquid nail to attach it to the shelf. This did a good job of holding up for a few months until one of her friends decided to use the lamp pull cord as a swing. The lip around the lamp was not that large and the lamp fell. Luckily it fell into the loft and not the entire way to the floor. But a new holding mechanism was needed.. So here is the new way it works. I drilled ...

Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure: Items to Build for Fundraiser #6: Soap Dish Update

06-27-2010 05:49 PM by Jonathan | 0 comments »

OK, I figured out how I’m going to be making the 3-trim-based soap dishes. I decided to cut off half the grooves. I kept the side that had 4-evenly spaced half-round grooves to it. I very carefully stood the trim pieces on end and ripped half of it off at a time on the tablesaw. I basically had the blade raised about 2” above the table, cutting half the grooves off at a time, running each board through twice (if that makes sense). This reduced the thickness of each trim piec...
