I also have a 4” to 2-1/2” Coupler that I got from Rockler.It TOO wants to connect to 4” Hose!I DO NOT want to use 4” hose! I want to connect the 4” to 2-1/2” coupler to the Hoods – Simple!They DO NOT make such a device!So, I have make a Coupler to couple 4” Hood to 4” to 2-1/2” converter! ...
Among my hobbies is playing fiddle at acoustic jams. What I have noticed when a bunch of fiddlers gather is that everyone “ohhs” and “ahhs” over the cases. I think this is because all of the fiddles look the same. Sure some have a prettier finish or grain than others, but none really jump out at you. There is always someone with a crocodile vintage case that wins the show. Those are hard to come by, so I thought I would try building a wooden case to try and keep ...
I was not able to work on this project last weekend as it was a yard and garden work weekend. Today though I got back into the shop and began cutting the mortise and tenon joinery for the table base. I used my little woodpeckers rule stop to mark out the mortises and really like this little tool. I cut the mortises first with my plunge router and guide using a 1/4 inch upspiral bit. It did take me awhile to cut the mortises for the upper and lower rails, but everything I do in woo...
Hey friends, back from some sawdust and shavings with an updated installment of the tool tote build. Hope all is well out there in LJ’s land….it’s been a wild week from the get go over here on the farm for sure…..but had some time and pics from recent and last week as well to make an updated blog of the tote progress. I wanted to have a cool, unique and yet old school piece on this tote that had to follow the simple and humble parameters of…...duribilty, funct...
It’s been a few days since I added any thing here so figured I would catch up. Saturday my son Ryan and I added another section of shelves. Sunday I cleaned the place up and although my shop isnt finnished I am again able to work on a project. A while back I bought some wood at the flea market the guy said it was some kind of gum but didnt know what kind. It is 3 1/2” by 3 1/2” by 40”. I bought 4 of them for a buck a piece. I had also bought some other wood at the...
A lot can happen in 42 days, but when we’re talking about my cello it’s probably safer to say, little happens in 42 days! I have plenty of excuses but let’s forget about those and just get to the good news, I finally got a bending strap! So today I bent some ‘C’ ribs! (And glued one of them too). First up, in keeping with my light industry time is of the essence (wait? Didn’t I just slack for 42 days doing no work at all…) approach towards this ins...
LJs, I finally made it into the new shop and have begun setup. I put up insulation and wall panels, and have started too placement. Unfortunately, school started up and I will have to postpone further modification until the fall. Enjoy.
Hi All Here is a short slideshow showing a collection of images of The Epic Launch Sit back and enjoy. Cheers Ian
The top was glued up and milled to finished size, the material for the legs was also milled for thickness and width
What, no spoons you might be thinking…lol. Well of course not for it is time to get grooving with our Woodrights Galoot Library! No matter what you do sometimes the wood has made up it’s mind on how well it will work for the job. In this episode the old box store pine was what I call a bit “Bitchey”,.....not sawing so well, and especially not up for me having an easy go of dadoing the inner sides. The tools were all plenty sharp but the wood was just a little tough and sappy this tim...
