Just for Fun... #26: A Productive Weekend...

07-16-2010 11:30 PM by littlecope | 13 comments »

Of course, working in the Restaurant Biz, I mean the last few days… I ended up getting in about 9-10 hours on this latest box, and except for some small detail work, it’s just about ready for some finishing…If you’ll recall, I left off Wednesday having glued the hinges in place…I began yesterday morning by pinning them into place with wooden dowel, and cutting off the excess with my trusty “Poor Man’s” Japanese Saw. Notice the finely crafted han...

bandsaw #7: Getting Better

09-18-2010 05:13 AM by twokidsnosleep | 4 comments »

Long day at work doing precision work (3 root canals, bunch of fillings, implant impression, lots of looking through microscope loupes…..) time to do something BIG with my hands and the bandsaw!! So tonight was the night to let the timberwolf howl! I have been tinkering and practicing with pine to dial in the GO555P, adjust the resaw fence and figure out blade drift. I cut some maple and pear that I bought to do a tea box for my mom, but have been too chicken to hack into it until I g...

Hand tool workbench #3: Finishing the End Assemblies

10-26-2010 02:23 AM by brianl | 1 comment »

Before I put the end assemblies together I wanted to rig up the levelers. To level the bench I am using Hockey pucks with 1/2” bolts epoxied in them. I am then epoxying nuts into the legs of the assemblies. The Levelers: Testing the fit of a nut after I drilled a hole in the bottom of a leg using my drill press and a forstner bit. Once the levelers were done it was time to look into finishing up the ends. I went ahead and used a 3/8” forstner bit to drill holes...

Michigan LJ Conference - Lansing Area

11-07-2010 03:54 AM by SteveMI | 13 comments »

Picnic didn’t sound right since it was indoors without a grill, so my brother suggested conference. Anyway, today a group of Southern Michigan LJ (bottom of your palm for the geographically challenged) got together in DeWitt Michigan. KJuly took care of getting us a community building for free. So we had Jockmike and his wife, BillyJ and his wife, Rustic Rick and his wife, David Craig and his two sons, KJuly and his son, Russ in Michigan and myself. Some projects were displaye...

Just for Fun... #36: Well, not exactly...

11-18-2010 01:05 AM by littlecope | 16 comments »

No Fun here!! This is all Business!!Being the resident Handyman (and Box Maker) at the Restaurant, it was inquired of me whether I thought I could make a sort of “Suggestion” box, so the customers could offer up any comments or criticism…The Requirements are that it has to be wall-hung, that it needs to lock, and that it needs to be large enough to fit a certain sized comment card… I requested some 3/8” Walnut from the Owner (or any Exotic that caught her eye) an...

New WoodWorking Bench #2: Material chosen

11-29-2010 03:58 PM by ray6576 | 0 comments »

I have decided on using LVL lumber for the bench top and 2×12’s for the support structure. I had to take a couple of weeks off while I decided on a new planner since my Delta gave up on me. I have purchased a Dewalt 13 inch with 3 blades (model 735 I think), it does a great job. I have now glued up the blanks for the legs and supports and brought them down to finished dimensions. I will start layout work today. I will take some pictures of my progress and post tonight.

The Art of Wood #4: Why Wood?

01-10-2011 09:13 PM by Rogue | 0 comments »

I like wood because you can put stuff in it. I don’t mean you can make a box and fill it with things. That’s not the kind of stuff I’m talking about. I mean the sort of stuff that makes us willing to change the worst baby diaper or ride your bike 50 miles a day out in the cold to train for a race. The stuff that makes you satisfied and at peace when you come home after a hard day’s work. Even though your body aches, your heart is well and warm. It’s more th...
