Shop reorg #4: Lumber Loft Lift

01-15-2013 03:26 PM by GeBeWubya | 0 comments »

John came back to town and we erected the Lumber Loft. The fit was pretty good, meaning it only took moderate persuasion with the dead blow, crowbar, screws and dowels through joints, and shims under one foot. John designed, cut, and installed the cornice. We attached the shelf with a French cleat. With the cornice, pegboard, and shelf in place the loft is rock solid (well, wood solid at least.) I’m now working on mounting a shelving unit (AKA prototype wine rack) above...

Horses - Intarsia Woodworking

02-25-2013 01:45 PM by Chris Mobley | 4 comments »

Horses – Intarsia WoodworkingOne of my recent Intarsia projects is from a painting of horses. The client sent me a photograph of a painting hanging on their wall and requested an Intarsia piece from this photograph. I was very excited to start this one because I loved the picture they sent over. I started this project by cropping and enhancing this photograph on the computer. There is a few ways that I could have done this project. 1) Making the pieces follow the musculature of the horse’s...

Tool Reliability... #2: PSI Turncrafter Lathe

03-26-2013 12:54 AM by SteveL | 3 comments »

Not sure, but I think I’ve had this for about 5 years now. The lathe doesn’t spin up right away. Sometimes it doesn’t start and other times, it starts but turns real slowly for a while, then speeds up to full speed. It also seems to lack power when I do get it running. It has a DC motor 1/2 horsepower, 120 VDC, 60 Hz, Class E 1700 RPM. I am assuming that the speed control has gone bad, but can’t be sure. Here’s a photo of the circuit board. H...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1020: A Short Break

04-25-2013 11:12 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I am writing today just to let you know that I am going to take a couple of days off from blogging here. I am pretty much caught up with things for the moment, and I want to take a breath, regroup and map some things out for the next several months of projects. Believe it or not, we are looking at out holiday deadlines coming up and there are many new directions that I see Keith and I taking the company. After the past couple weeks of craziness, I just want to back away for a couple of day...

The top two boxes are made out of reclaimed wood I got from an old coffee table I bought at a flea market.I think it’s cherry, but I’m not sure.The pieces are planned down to 3/8” and are 2 1/8” wide.The joints on this one are ‘mini’ box joints done on the PC 4213 jig.The bottom has a 3/16” rabbit cut to hold a piece of hard board.The covers are 1/2” pine with rounded over edges and rabbit cut on the table router to fit inside the box.

As The Shop Turns #4: Dust Collection What do I really need?

05-30-2013 04:32 AM by Natalie | 4 comments »

This is not a question of what brand to buy, and I already know that I want a cyclone with the micron filter canisters. My question is about how much power do I need for my shop. I don’t want to get something that is good enough but not great. I want great performance without overkill. My shop is just shy of 500 sq ft and I will have the typical tools. I don’t expect too many times when there will be anyone else but me in the shop, so essentially I will be using one tool at ...
