Maybe the beginning of a larger project #25: Set back

08-19-2013 05:11 AM by Mark Shymanski | 7 comments »

816 isn’t really ready for this step but I had to see what it would look like with the mast:-) I am actually glad I did this because I identified a significant flaw in my build. There is significant torque applied to the step and parter so with the way I’ve mounted the partner on the 3/8 bulkhead it is clearly too weak to sustain the kinds of forces that it needs to. I will need to re-work the bulkhead and step. I left the bulkhead free floating at base, in retrospect th...

From a block of Wood… Round Ring Box

11-24-2013 10:47 PM by whope | 2 comments »

Since I moved and my new shop is small, I decided to work on some small projects. I chose to work on a ring box. I wanted to use some techniques that I heard/read about a long time ago, so I decided that the box needed to be round. Like a ring. Making a cylinderI started off with a 2×2x12 block of Bloodwood. Just because I liked the color. A friend of mine had told me a long time ago that I could use my router as a precision lathe. There are some jigs and special tools to consider ...

Shop #1: The Table Saw Adventure

10-10-2011 05:47 PM by topcat | 2 comments »

After a weekend of cleaning up the shop, I decided to start with the rest of the arrangement. The workbench and table saw tune up. The workbench will be another “work in progress” project and, if I’m lucky, will have an overhead drum sander at one end . . . but, that’s another story. The table saw needs a whole lot of attention. It’s not the best model available, but the JTS-10DD has served my basic needs for about 7 years. It has survived an attempted abduction ...

The Urban Entrepreneur #2: The real game Plan or ( the business plan you will throw out)

12-27-2011 07:36 AM by sawblade1 | 0 comments »

One of the most biggest screw ups I did was follow the same road as a regular Entrepreneur and write a elaborate 30 page business plan complete with 1,3,5 year projections!!! Well I got turned down for financing and two years after writing and revising the plan I said forget it. As I listened at the UE’s seminar I learned how to put together a 60 second speech that defines my business. (I will cover this later in another post) But here is my 5 minute plan that worked versus my two year...

New Tools Added to the Shop #2: Porter Cable Drill Press

11-28-2014 09:40 PM by Steven | 2 comments »

I stopped at Lowes this morning to buy the Porter Cable 660 DP. $319.99 on the floor, $255.20 plus tax after the Harbor Freight 20% off coupon I printed from an online site. Setup was very straight forward, with one exception. The very last step is installing the arbor and chuck. The arbor installation instruction states to make sure the arbor is engaged and locked. There are no clues provided as to how you ensure the arbor is engaged and locked. Here is what I can tell you. Yes, I ca...

Today i went back out to the workshop, which was so cold the joys of autum, after i had taken the masking tape off i cleaned the glue off and sanded the outside of the box then cut and glued a piece of leather for the inside of the base then cut some mapple slip for the tray to sit on and glued it on.while that was setting i made the tray which is made the same way as the box only on a smaller scale, then went about making a lid which is quite simple in design just a rebate to inset it intoth...

Hats off to the creators of this site!

11-29-2007 12:14 AM by Popintraining | 14 comments »

What a fantastic idea and first class all the way! It’s so amazing to me what technology and the internet has enabled us to do.I’ve always enjoyed reading magazine articles about other craftsman and seeing the different things they created. (This is so much better)It blows my mind that Tony over there in Finland is checking out our bar or if I ever felt the urge too make a guitar or something I have no clue about, I know where to go! (what a trip!)Looking forward to having some fun! P....

Working with recycled timber #3: When you are onto something really good

07-03-2013 08:29 AM by robscastle | 1 comment »

OK this is something everybody into recycling should know. Some really brilliant tips. Attached to my Working with recycled timber blogs are excellent tips fellow LJs have taken the time to pass on, and they directly add additional knowledge to the subject matter I was covering. I personally think they are very worthwhile and are essential contributions to the WW knowledge bank, It provides the two heads are better than one (or in some cases three) for situations. So along wi...

Cabinet/Bookshelves #1: In the beginning there was darkness...

01-13-2015 08:12 PM by Bermuda_Les | 0 comments »

So after many years of promising the good woman I would build her some cabinet/bookshelves, I have finally begun that daunting task. I have never tackled a furniture project before, but having spent many years making custom presentation case for firearms, I thought I’d give it a try. Here is a Stetchup drawing of kinda what I’m trying to achieve. The drawing lacks the doors that will be on the bottom cabinets and any molding trim top and bottom. But hopefully it will give yo...
