How I build things (Photo Blog)

10-08-2010 04:07 AM by wellington | 0 comments »

Some of my friends have been asking to come hang out with me while I’m working at the shop. Granted, most of them live much too far away to actually come visit… So, I decided to make a sensible photo blog documenting the tables that I’m building… And, just like everything I do, it’s completely serious. This was hosted over at flickr… and yeah, all of the pictures are gone now… so… uh… my bad.

Step-back Cupboard Build #13: Face frame attached

06-26-2009 05:00 AM by rwyoung | 0 comments »

All I had on the docket for tonight was to get the upper face frame glued on and the necessary cleanup. Done. Nothing more complicated than doing a dry fit to prep the clamps and glue that puppy down. The clamps I’m using have heads sized so that a 2×4 can be used to lift workpieces and clear the head of the clamp. Notice the glue run near the center of the side. Not a big deal, I caught as much as possible. The rest gets scraped and sanded when the clamps are off. Easy pe...

Grizzly G0452P Jointer Set-Up #4: Serious Fence Issue

07-19-2015 07:25 PM by ERQ | 5 comments »

When assembling the fence for the jointer, you need to place the fence on the table in order to have clearance to insert and tighten the screws holding the fence bracket to the fench carriage that rides on the “ram” (the rack-and-pinion steel post): I noticed upon installing the fence, that there was a lot of play in the fence, but that the default position it wanted to settle at was with pretty uneven gaps at the infeed table side vs the outfeed table side, even with the i...

Finally Spindle Pictures

10-13-2009 01:11 AM by dustbunny | 11 comments »

I posted a blog about some chair spindles I turned for a friend. These were to replace the broken spindles on a chair he was working on. Finally, he sent me pictures this morning. Apparently he has put the chair together, but plans on staining and finishing them sometime…..Even though they are not stained it is still nice to see that the work was used and actually doesn’t look too bad. Thanks for looking, Lisa

Musical Instruments Restoration #7: VIOLIN JIG - The CLAMP for bending

07-06-2013 03:45 PM by BertFlores58 | 3 comments »

This is the progress for the previous blog I made. Just look at the pictures. The long bolts are pedestals and pins for the clamps. I used the 3 holes to make it standing. It started from a flat steel bar drilled with three holes. Then bended squarely on both ends just enough to be away so that it will accomodate the small ebony piece that will be the push block. A push bolt with a knob was taken from the locking screw of scrapped pedestal. The nut should have been welded ...

The Chronicles of Woodworking in a Can #12: It's been a while

10-11-2010 05:36 PM by cmckerliesr | 4 comments »

Hey All!Yes, it has been a while since my last blog about working in the can. This one, I hope will be short as there is not a lot that has changed in the can. I have told you all about the tools I have bought and my plans to insulate the can in the hopes of maintaining a bearable work environment. I can tell you that there has been some really HOT days this summer, which literally drove me out of the can. No wind, high humidity on some days, and temps hovering around 100 degree’s pr...

Morris inspired chair #11: Invest in foam rubber futures

07-10-2007 07:32 AM by Bob Babcock | 6 comments »

Wow… foam rubber expensive. We picked up the foam last week but have been waiting for the zippers to arrive (had to order online). The seat is 5” of high density foam wraped in 1” of low density foam and then batting. The back is just 4” of low density foam wrapped in batting. They feel pretty comfortable. The seat is a little stiff but should break in quickly with me on it. Hopefully Suzanne will get the cushions done this week. We bought two materials. Niether...

Adventures in Lutherie #5: Peg reamer and peg shaver

11-18-2016 08:41 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

[Above] Always trying to do things on the cheap, made a peg hole reamer using a rat tail file. I broke most of the tang off and inserted it into a hole drilled in a piece of flat steel. I glued it together using JB Weld and it’s held up so far with no problems. To use it I drill a pilot hole at 3/16 inch and ream it out to the largest diameter on the tapered file which 1/4 inch. You have to twist the reamer in the direction that will try to force it out of the hole, otherwise it...
