Working on some Wooden Bracelets

02-20-2012 02:12 AM by Jeremy Greiner | 2 comments »

My girlfriend saw the bracelets from scrappy and asked if I would make her one. I figured it’d be a good way to burn through some scraps so why not. The bracelets are a great way to use up cut off’s from planer snipe. My planer snipes :( and I end up with these small cut offs that I hate throwing away because of it, well this project uses them up! I cut up a bunch of pieces to 1/2’’ thick by 3/4’’ wide by whatever depending on the piece of scrap. Some pu...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #6: Arched Candle Holder - Wrap up

01-02-2010 07:20 AM by sras | 1 comment »

I fell behind on this a bit with the holidays (plus a bit of a headcold). I guess I’ll start out with a follow up detail from the last entry. Lisa (aka dustbunny) complemented me on the compound miters (Thanks Lisa!). I have to confess that they did not turn out that way right after glueing up. After I smoothed the rough edges, a few of the corners were not lined up right. In addition to the mis match, you can also see there is a slight chip in the lacewood at the bottom. Luckily...

Good new, Good news and Bad news

06-08-2007 08:44 PM by Greg3G | 7 comments »

First, let me thank you all again for all your words of encouragement and support. It really means a lot to me. I had my first follow up this morning, spent an hour and half in the Dr’s office. First the good news, He does not think I did any damage the other night when I rolled over on the shoulder or when I got my hand tangled in the dog’s leash as it leapt from the van. I was pretty nervous that I had messed things up and would have to go through this all over again. Second, I can re...

AT-A-BOY for Shop Vac

12-21-2009 07:44 PM by zlatanv | 6 comments »

My shop vac switch went out last week, looked on line for parts but they don’t offer the switch online, went to Northern Tools, who shows to be an authorized repair center on the book that came with the vac. Northern said they never were a repair center and not sure why they were listed. Went to a vac shop but they didn’t have the right switch either. The problem was the switch has four wires, couldn’t retrofit one with only three connections and it wouldn’t fit in ...

As The Lathe Turns #39: Time To Back Up A Bit

06-27-2013 11:26 PM by William | 10 comments »

Have any of you ever noticed that when things start going wrong, they keep going wrong? For me, once it starts, it keeps going until I just all of a sudden have a victory, or I back it up a bit. Since the failures keep coming, I figured it was time to throw it in reverse. What do I mean by that? I have a tendency to want to do things that are challenging. Some may argue that I sometimes even push the envelope too much, too quickly, on things. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing. I k...

You can never....

  …have enough clamps. Every woodworker in the world knows this.   Previous collection I certainly don’t have enough; not even close.   The Problem Recently, in an attempt to speed up production in the shop, I’ve noticed the lack of clamps was slowing me down significantly. Even though I was initially adverse to working on more than one project at a time, it’s quickly became necessary. More clamps So this morning, after a nice relaxing b...
