and then it becomes....... #9: interior arch and columns

01-10-2009 08:47 PM by kolwdwrkr | 8 comments »

Well here I am again. Joy to the world. LOL. I am working on the interior of the box and here is where it stands. The parts you see in the pictures are NOT attached in any fashion, in fact I have a piece of scrap pine holding up the back of the shelf that sits on the arch. There will be additions added that will hold this up, but ssshhhhh it’s a secret! I turned the columns out of wenge to match the handle and the base. Instead of turning a piece and then cutting it in half I took...

Beads Box #2: Laminated Sides are Cut

03-09-2009 05:32 PM by PurpLev | 4 comments »

So I’m very excited about this project as this is the first project that I’m using hardwoods on (everything prior was mainly plywood based except for face frames and other accents). So this weekend I had the chance to start working on this project, and start using my short-lumber-supply. I had my eye set on a piece of (what I thought was a) cherry that was just right in dimensions for the sides of this box. it was about 16” tall (to accommodate for the 12” tall box)...

In Between Projects

03-27-2009 05:30 AM by Eric | 4 comments »

Now that the Lego Table is done, I have decided that I really can’t take on any more projects until I sharpen my tools. I think my sharpening skills are pretty decent, although I recently learned of some things I could do even better. As a result, my decent sharpening of long, long ago has kept my tools sharp enough to justify (in my head) an insane level of procrastination. But can you blame me? I get a few hours of shop time a week, if I’m lucky. If I have a project in the wo...

Weather Station: The Next Generation #2: Template Solution: Opposite Man

04-13-2009 06:21 AM by newTim | 1 comment »

Some may remember the old Seinfeld episode where George decided his normal way wasn’t working out so he vowed to do everything opposite. While things started going in his favor Elaine’s life became like George’s old life and Seinfeld remained even. Not that that has anything to do with woodworking, I was just looking for something clever. In any event I mentioned in Blog 1 that in the original project I was fighting gravity so I decided to remedy the situation by doing th...

Lamp - Shoji, midcentury modern - inspired #3: Dimensioning lumber adventure

05-21-2009 02:23 AM by AaronK | 2 comments »

With 50+ pieces in this design, it’s now an adventure in dimensioning lumber. Which is made lots easier by my new planer, which works really well. The walnut, as i said before, was free, and quite warped/cupped/bowed. pretty much everything. So I needed a sled to help the planing/jointing/4-square process: built on particleboard, which isnt the best, but it did well enough considering that after using my table saw to do its most accurate, precise work demanded of it yet with ...

Dust Collector #3: Sealing up the Contractor's saw for dust

06-15-2009 12:39 AM by sjbob | 3 comments »

I’ve been planning on doing a backplate for my old Delta 34-444 Contractor’s saw to seal it up for dust collection..I looked at a couple of things online, and the diagram from the Taunton book looked very close, I recreated the positions and angles for myself, drew it up in SketchUp – but then could not print out lifesize drawings (so gave up on that). Next I played with cardboard, doing the radii with string & pencil, then followed it up today with hardboard. I was ...

My stuff is starting to sell

07-01-2009 03:56 AM by Rustic | 7 comments »

Hey Guys and Gals, Just thought that I would let you all know that I sold another cribbage board (seperate from the craft mall). I also made a double business card holder that can hold at least 5 different sets of business cards. I will try to get a pic of it soon. Sold the board for $15.00 and the card holder for $10.00. I am working on some new stuff for the craft mall too. The bed is on a temp hold until I can get the money together for it. Rick

Unisaw restoration #2

08-05-2009 08:11 PM by MedicKen | 10 comments »

With work and family I have had very little time to work on my recent restoration project. It is a 1968 Delta unisaw with a 2hp 3 phase motor. As you may remember from the previous installment I had it torn apart and was working on cleaning the cabinet and trunnion assembly. I have completed the cleaning and have painted the trunnion, installed new arbor bearings and have it reassembled. I finally got around to working on the cabinet. There were numerous holes that had been placed in the c...
