Here are some pictures I took of the mitred frame I’m putting together. These were taken this morning (Monday, the 19th), before I trimmed off the ends of the dowel rods and before I went down to the glass shop to get the piece of glass for the top. Since I’ve now come back from the glass shop, it sort of looks like they might have cut the glass a hair too big (I took the frame to the store so they could measure directly), but I’m not complaining̷...

Nightstand for CPAP Machine #5: Tweeking the Sketchup Model

1009 days ago by LegendInMyOwnMind | 1 comment »

Keep having this annoying Sketchup problem. Sometimes I can make an object on a face and it doesn’t work. Had that specific problem when I wanted to sink a hole through the side of the nightstand for the CPAP hose. Decided to try and watch some tutorial videos and figure out what’s the issue. Trouble was I didn’t know what to call the problem in order to search for a solution. Finally found a video which describes it as “Z-Fighting”. The video is SketchUp won'...

Drill Press

947 days ago by canadianchips | 5 comments »

Hello everyone. I have been looking for a bigger drill press since my move here (3 yrs ). I have smaller ones, they do not have the power to work with my corner block bits. I have two different styles of Mortise chisels that adapt to drill press, the little drills do not have the right collar to use them. I once had a craftsman 15” floor model and I liked it. (sold it when I moved). Well wait and yea shall receive. Went to auction ,there it was, 15” craftsman, waved my...

4rth Try At Curves Ughhh

934 days ago by karen12 | 10 comments »

I really stink at this so far. I have my speed turned down halfway and I still can’t stay on a line. I’m using 1/4 inch baltic ply to practice with and a #5 Flying Dutchman Ultra Reverse. I’m getting chatter every time I get near a curve near the edge of the board. Is the blade too big? I’ve got no idea. Wish someone would read this and teach me what to do. It’s not fun not knowing what you are doing wrong. I’m not familiar with this new site so I won...

Workbench Build #13: Last of the holes + Some Leather......

922 days ago by JL7 | 17 comments »

Yesterday I used the router to create the start of the dog holes, today I bored them thru….... awhile back I bought some Irwin Speedbor bits on clearance – a 3 pack for $6.97…...a definite bargain, but they have been hanging on the hook since I bought them for 6 months or more…...until today. These babies are bad to the bone – and actually a bit hazardous if you are not hanging on tight…..You need to run the drill at low speed but they cut this hard map...

To be or not to be? When William Shakespeare wrote Hamlet, Do you recon he was thinking about a wood lathe? I just returned from an auction, and this is what I drug home with me. You ask why??? Because I only gave $10 for it. It was interesting and I figured if nothing else, It had $10 worth of timber in it. It needs cleaned up to be sure, but I believe it is hickory, or at least parts. After unloading it in the shop, I sorted out the pieces. Now I’m not sure if I want to put it back to...

Upgrading my shop! #3: My new (used) jointer and the beginning of my Mitersaw station.

851 days ago by Kevin | 4 comments »

My biggest problem is I try to do to many things at one time cause I can never decide what to work on 1st. Now that the old Craftsman benchtop jointer I was working on is finished I decided to start on my new mitersaw station. I’m on a pretty tight budget right now so the mitersaw station is being built out of 3/4 in plywood from an old set of cabinets that I tore apart. It was a nice suprise to find that the entire cabinet was 3/4 in thich ply. As you can see in the pictures it is stil...

Ted's Woodworking fraud and Clickbank's compliance in theft and piracy

838 days ago by Stevinmarin | 52 comments »

I hope none of you mind me posting this on LJ. And I’m sorry that this topic and this series of videos has gotten so lengthy. For those of you who already subscribe to Mere Minutes, I promise I will get back to my usual stuff around the shop soon. Well, that and things like gardening tips that I certainly won’t post on LumberJocks! For those of you who ARE concerned about woodworking piracy, here’s a link I mention in this video. Basically, bows down and ...
