Routing Inlays #3: Something Completely Different

04-24-2010 03:08 AM by Maclegno | 4 comments »

INTRODUCTION.. NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT As they used to say on MONTY PYTHON’S FLYING CIRCUSWhile browsing on the Net recently I came across the following Photo (in DEVIANTART.COM an excellent source of design ideas) of a painting containing a metal Celtic brooch. I was attracted by its simple lines. I had previously been toying with the possibilities of using soldering wire as an inlay medium purely as a type of stringing. But seeing this brooch started me thinking that...

ARMOIRE- Jewelry box - using RECYCLED WOOD #2: ARMOIRE - Jewelry box using recycled wood

PART II I suggest that you read first the first part of the series for a better understanding… The drawer In making the drawer, all the difficulties were turned to an easy task because of proactiveness. We cannot avoid changes of idea, plans, joints, size, cuts and other problems while doing the job. I don’t have blue pirnts neither actual plans in doing this project specially when you deal with recycled or scraps materials. Here you can find: undersize, grooves, dents...

Naphtha and Shop Cleanup

07-02-2010 02:14 AM by AnthonyC | 7 comments »

I was getting the shipping gunk off of my OSS (had it two years and never used it) using some Naphtha and a rag. It was going well, and I remembered hearing that Naphtha was good at cleaning planer rollers, so I figured it should be good for any of those foam grippy things we have around the shop. So a quick wipe of my jointer push blocks and my Grripper and they are all like new again. It was amazing how much extra grip was lost from a thin coating of dust. So I’m leaving the N...

Potato cannon carriage #4: Ignition

08-10-2010 05:21 AM by JJohnston | 9 comments »

Ignition is via a 100,000 volt stun gun connected to the electrodes. The stun gun has a sliding on/off switch on the left side, and a momentary contact rocker switch on the right. I carefully pried the rocker switch body out of the housing and disconnected the wires. I then removed the guts from the switch housing, cut out a small rectangle of acrylic the same size as the bezel on the switch housing, drilled a hole in it big enough for the lamp wire I’m using for a remote switch, and su...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #95: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Stars

09-06-2010 01:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Finally. A Monday that people like. With the Labor Day holiday both here and in the United States, most everyone in these countries have the day off. However, with the Labor Day holiday comes the realization that summer is coming to a close and winter is not far off. I am certain that there will be plenty of grumblings about that on my facebook page. They already have started. I am ready for fall and winter. The past week was enough summer for me. I guess I found something that I di...

trolling for tools

09-18-2010 07:45 AM by BigTiny | 5 comments »

There a couple of tools I want that are too expensive hereabouts in my humble opinion. First is a digital angle indicator for setting table saw blades etc. Price here? $40. Second is a dial indicator guage, the type used to check table saws for run out and to make sure the blade is parallel to the guide slot and fence. Haven’t seen these here at all. Anyone got a decent place to get these at a reasonable price? Preferably a Canadian source.
