Building an Aircraft #2: Making the body

08-13-2015 02:15 PM by jase | 2 comments »

So my main body is from a piece of cherry totaling about 2”x2”. Using the template pieces from Part #1 you can trace out your design with a pencil. So first grab your side template and put it on your wood and cut it out making sure that you have a reference point. I use the nose of the aircraft as mine, meaning both the nose and top cutouts need to be flush on the nose of the wood with the end of the cherry. So walk to the bandsaw and carefully cut them out. Next us...

Why buy it when you can make it! #38: Workbench Time [Part 2] - Nice legs?

08-16-2015 05:40 AM by paxorion | 0 comments »

After a few months of slacking off, I’m finally picking back up my workbench project. I purchased 3×2x10’s from the big box store and had them drying in my basement for a few weeks. The plan calls for legs that around 3.75” square, built up like a French Roubo workbench. Tonight, I got to milling the lumber. After filling the dust collector, I was finally done milling the material, and glued up the legs. I decided to glue up 2 legs per clamp up. After fini...

multipurpose workcenter #1: My journey to a productive workspace

08-19-2015 01:40 AM by luv2wheels | 1 comment »

As seen on the cover of BH&G Wood magazine. Just to let everyone know I can not take credit for the design, etc. When I saw this it fit my criteria of keeping it simple, using easily sourced/common materials and low cost. This will be phase #1 of helping to get my shop more organized so I will be able to make sawdust more efficiently. On my homepage I mentioned that shop pictures may be coming by the end of the year. Hopefully this workcenter will be enough of an improvement that I wil...

New Workshop #4: Flooring down and Roof Struts up...

08-22-2015 08:41 PM by Bermuda_Les | 6 comments »

We got some major work done today. Three quarters of the flooring down, the remaining wall panels and the major roof struts up. My son David is earning some serious good karma by doing 95% of the work. The weather even cooperated, by not raining while we were working and being overcast enough for us to work outside. It’s starting to look like a workshop at last. Tomorrow we will do more roof struts and maybe even get some shingles up.

Hints and Tips #9: Occasional Pocket Hole Joinery

08-27-2015 01:11 AM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

While I cannot be called a die hard fan of pocket hole joinery, I’ll admit it has some uses. Such a use came about today as I was completing a project (to be posted in a day or two). This method of making pocket holes without an expensive jig I saw in a video by Steve Carmichael. (the link starts the video right at the part I’m talking about). [Above] These are the tools I used to do this procedure. Your choices may vary. I’m using a 3/8 inch spade bit, 1/8 in. twis...

Bowl/Pot/Chamber Pot(?)

09-02-2015 08:51 AM by Mark Wilson | 17 comments »

This is the city. Los Angeles, California. This is the most popular industrial tree in the city and her suburbs. Here’s one at UCLA, showing the buttressed trunk, it’s most famous feature. This shows how this magnificent tree elevates sidewalks. Sometimes, along with the sidewalk, someone’s front yard gets picked up, too. That’s when the County sends a tree crew to remove it. My call comes in the form of the sound of chainsaws nearby. My cal...

Carving envy

02-28-2007 03:18 AM by Dan Lyke | 9 comments »

I’m pretty gifted. I probably say that with some conceit, because I’m pretty conceited too, but I still have reason to believe it’s true. I’m good at a lot of things, and I’ve had any number of personality issues because I approach the world at a high enough level that people have trouble keeping up with me. One of the things that reading LumberJocks is doing is teaching me humility. And it’s doing this in two ways. To me, there are two types of artis...
