My First Workbench #28: Day 29: Mounting the Leg Vise (part 1)

10-19-2012 11:46 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Here’s the link to the post with pictures. Today I finally had enough of thinking and worrying about how to mount the leg vise. After all, once I drill that big hole through the leg, there’s no going back! I got out the Black and Decker Woodwrecker and a 5/8” paddle bit, then punched a hole in the chop for the threaded rod. Then i carefully lined up the chop exactly where I wanted it…leveled it and clamped it in place. I marked the spot on the leg where the hole...

Back At Teaching...This Time With Wood #2: Preparing the sheet stock

03-22-2009 05:14 PM by PGreene | 4 comments »

Well, Immanuel and I finished planning out the project this week and went to Lowes to purchase sheet stock. He decided on a three drawer bottom with flat pannel doors at the top. It will be 6 1/2 ft tall, 16” deep and 36” wide. I also had time to teach him the difference in grades of plywood and solid wood. He will have a good chance to compare when we mill rough stock that I have at the shop. I thought it would be good for him to use both purchased lumber and rough milled lu...

New Workshop #3: What a difference a week makes

07-23-2010 04:19 AM by jcwalleye | 6 comments »

3 full days since the concrete was poured and things are moving quickly. Here is a picture from a distance. The site work is largly finished and most of the framing is done. There is good progress on the sheeting and I’m guessing that it will be done tomorrow, before the weekend. Decided to sheet the interior with OSB instead of sheet-rock or plywood. Sheet-rock would have looked better but not as durable. Plywood would have cost about $10/sheet more. You can ...

shop clean up

07-17-2014 03:30 AM by Michaelgurrado | 6 comments »

I really like having a clean and organized shop space, unfortunately that is very to maintain in a small space. As clean as i keep my shop it always manages to get dusty, messy, unorganized and i end up misplacing everything. I usually like to spend sometime when i am done in my shop to clean up but sometimes time gets away from me and other obligations come up. when this happens i end up having to clean up my shop very late at night when i am really exhausted and tired. Because i share my...

Building the Infill Shooting Plane #11: Makin' it pretty

08-06-2016 09:17 PM by JayT | 11 comments »

Most of the body is now shaped, but a couple more areas I like to touch. The corner of the 3/8 base plate is still at a 90 . . . . . . . . so I round it to match the wood body and eliminate a sharp corner. I also round over the top of the escapement area a bit to eliminate that corner, as well. No picture of what it looked like, but these are the areas that get some attention. Now it’s just a matter of sanding everything to whatever level you desire. Don’...

Keep sake box #1: First Marquetry Post since AFSM

01-08-2014 12:44 AM by sandhill | 11 comments »

I’m real rusty and haven’t had a chance to do a project I wanted to do since I returned from AFSM a year ago so I thought it was about time. I decided I needed a JIG to cut Dove Tail splines, it just popped into my head so here is the JIG in the first picture. After I made the JIG I needed some way of trying it out so I thought why not a box I had not planned of even putting a top or bottom on it at the time. I found some QUILTED MAKORE that I had been carting around for the last ...

Discovering my Bandsaw

02-02-2010 04:38 AM by Bobby | 3 comments »

About 8 years ago I decided that I should have a bandsaw. However, not knowing anything about them, I just bought a Delta because of it’s name. I didn’t have a clue about what I was getting myself into. I was all excited when I got it home and I couldn’t wait to try it out. After a few cuts my excitement turned into disappointment. I couldn’t make it cut straight, even with the fence that I bought with it. It was so bad that even the little red plastic disk got...
