2014 - the long and short year

12-23-2014 09:24 PM by Nighthawk | 0 comments »

What a year… It has both been a long year and a short year… confusing I know, basically it seemed like a very short year work wise it just whizzed by. But on the flip side a long year that seem to drag on at home with the major project the bar. At one stage I thought I wasn’t going to get it to a usable stage for xmas and new year due to water proofing it, then other little things hampered my efforts including motivation and a little depression. My pride and joy motorcycl...

Powermatic 1500 bandsaw

01-21-2015 07:54 PM by Bill1933 | 0 comments »

I recently purchased a PM1500 Powermatic Bandsaw. I set it up and everything was working fine. A couple of weeks later, I went to use it on a project and it wouldn’t turn on or start. I ck’d the manual and everything ck’s out. This machine has a magnet that controls the on switch that is supposedly for safety. I think this is my problem. I want to rewire the machine and bypass this feature which looks pretty straightforward from the wiring diagram in the manual. No one exce...

I'm building an Army #11: Parting Shot

03-05-2015 03:19 AM by Gianni | 0 comments »

Well last night I used blue painters tape to mask off all the wood and grout the tile field. I’m pretty happy with how everything turned out, although putting down grout with an uneven/carved border made it a bit of a challenge. There are definitely some low spots in the grout, but for me, pretty darned good. Tonight my son and I used elmers glue to stick felt to the bottom of all the pieces. We cut oversized felt squares, spread the glue with our fingers, and held them with press...

Poor Man's Tools #5: Turning Accessory

03-09-2015 01:29 PM by handsawgeek | 8 comments »

This week’s Poor Man’s Tool is born of an idea that I learned about from a gentleman who turned beautiful aspen wood vases and sold them on consignment at my Step-Dad’s art gallery. Possibly, many of you who are experienced turners may have seen something like this before. Some of his pieces were decorated with a series of thin dark bands at various locations. I learned that these were made by holding a thicker-gauge wound guitar or piano string against the piece as it turned. The f...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #34: "Hard Maple Rocks!" Headphones Rack - Mounted

03-11-2015 12:16 AM by technoslick | 0 comments »

In the My Projects section I posted the completion of a rustic headphones rack for my ancient audio-technica AT-703 headphones. Since that post I added another coat of Danish oil and a final finish of The Original Formula Johnson Paste Wax. Here is what it looks like without the headphones: ...and with the headphones: And here is a view of the main workstation area of the office, showing the rack in place: This was a rewarding build, true to my scratch-building nature ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #46: Parqués

03-22-2015 10:26 PM by PhilBello | 5 comments »

Parqués is a Board Game peculiar to Colombia, although it has variations around the world, in the UK it is Ludo, elsewhere I don’t know. The problem is that unless you want to buy something that you would need a microscope to see, they are damned expensive…well by our standards, and I have now lived here long enough to believe in local values so with the family coming for Semana Santa / Easter, I decided I would try to make one, it’s not hard,. just time consuming. I ...

Thorsen House Cabinet #7: Putting it to the wood!

03-27-2015 05:33 PM by EläväPuu | 0 comments »

Hi everyone! I’ve been somewhat out of radio contact due to pressing work for my degree and working on a business startup…. Between then (when was the last post?) and now, the entire piece was constructed in Solidworks, had the bugs refined out (mostly avoiding work overcomplication and basic logistics), ripped apart and reconstructed. Very little has changed from the original dimensions and layout. The recipient of the largest changes were the doors in terms of the muntin/mull...

Tool Cabinet Build #13: Getting Back At It...

04-03-2015 02:28 AM by Airframer | 3 comments »

Aside from this being the second longest build on LJ’s next to Stef’s workbench build, I have finally started back to work on this cabinet. We last left off with me finding out that I need to learn front from back. The rabbets cut for the back were actually done on the front of the top and bottom panels. After a year and a half of pretending the problem would fix it’s self I finally ripped the offending section off and glued up a new strip of wood. Cut a couple new dov...
