What I learned Making Tongue Drums

06-26-2015 08:05 PM by GnarlyErik | 7 comments »

Thanks for your interest in the tongue drums - I apologize but I did not keep precise dimensions for my tongue drums. I made about six in total, mostly as experiments to discover how the various materials and sizes worked. I made some with red oak sound boards and pine sides, one with a mahogany board and oak sides, one with a hard maple and etc. I gave all but this one of away so no longer have them around to measure, but the sound boards on all of them were of a similar size. I have ...

It Starts With a Workbench #1: Step 0: Get introduced to woodworking and become obsessed

06-29-2015 09:52 PM by DocTux | 3 comments »

Anyone who read my intro will know, I know basically nothing about fine woodworking. Transferable skills I have is the ability to work a saw, a driver, a nail gun, and lift heavy things. What started with an 8 minute video on YouTube and was fueled by having just binge watched Parks and Rec (Ron Swanson anyone?) not 3 weeks prior, has culminated in a regular obsession with woodworking. I had a mild interest in it after watching Parks and Rec as well as Rick Offerman’s stand-up comedy, a...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #56: Make your ambient air cleaner (Jet, Delta, etc.) a lot better!

07-03-2015 09:59 PM by StumpyNubs | 15 comments »

If you own, plan to buy, or even make an overhead ambient air cleaner, you have to see this… I’m tired of buying expensive replacement filters, so I mounted a Wynn cartridge to my Jet air cleaner! It made the system WAY more efficient (lots more airflow), improved my air quality (the Wynn filter is MERV15), and I’ll never have to change it (the filter is infinitely cleanable). I made this video as part of our NEW DUST COLLECTION SECTION of our website to show you how to do i...

There is no such thing as a bad router, There are basically two types of routers, plunge routers, and fixed/stationary base, and ok i lied sorta of, the optional combo fixed router with a plunge base.

My Book Project #1: Some Thoughts

07-23-2015 05:15 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

I’ve finally figured out some direction for the ‘Book Project’ which I’ve been thinking towards for some time. I’m writing the book in my second language, Esperanto, so unfortunately it won’t be much use for Lumberjocks directly. However, I’m going to have to progress a bit in my woodworking journey for the content of the book. For example, I’m going to have to get my dad’s jack plane working and expand my joinery techniques a bit. Not s...

Making a compass

08-02-2015 09:43 AM by Garageworkshop1 | 7 comments »

In this video I make a compass from two pieces of thin steel rod and some flat stock, a thumbscrew and a couple of brass pins. The tips on the compass are regular mild steel. Not a lot to say about the project other than it’s a lot of filing and shaping.For the curved piece I went to the hardware store and traced a pattern from a store model on a piece of paper which I than transferred to steel. Really useful and simple project. Build video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q...

They Were Nice, But...

08-20-2015 01:04 AM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

If anyone remembers my festival of shop made bar clamps from a few years ago, you may be surprised to learn that they weren’t perfect after all. True I’ve used them as much as I could over the intervening time, but I was always contemplating on how to make them better. I even came out with an improved clamp a little while ago, but it too was not quite there. My improved clamp sports a stronger screw (3/8 in. instead of 1/4 in.) and the movable stop is much better, depending ...
