Winchester Lever Action Rubber Band Rifle. The Build #1: Templates

12-12-2018 11:51 AM by anthm27 | 14 comments »

I figured I would have a go at building one of these Winchester 1873 rubber band rifles. The project is inspired by these two lumberjocks projects and The plan for mine is to do it in solid of Ash with Walnut Barrels, Lever and Trigger. I,m doing mine to be more as a wall mounted room feature rather than a kids toy. I kind of want it to be special hence doing most of it out of a solid piece. Anyways today for...

Grandson's Coffee Table #3: just a glue up

12-12-2018 05:37 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

By Monday standards, it was more than enough…screws were bought….glue was spread…nothing got broke..this time Used a staged approach…ends were glued up and clamped first. Set down onto the floor…then the long aprons were added with more glue and clamps. Then these things were added, try to get things squared up Finally just set everything up onto the tops….top of the table, because the top of the tablesaw was too small.. Added a few more cla...

Building a Corner Cabinet From Magazine Plans

12-12-2018 01:15 AM by wrenchhead | 1 comment »

I built this corner cabinet out of curly maple. I built this project by following an article in the November 2010 issue (No. 186)of Popular Woodworking Magazine. I really love this design and this is the second one of these style cupboards i have built over the years. I mostly followed the plans in the article but I did make some changes, incorporating a beginner blacksmith project in to the cabinet. I forged these simple J hooks at the anvil for the piece and am I’m really happy with h...

House Addition/Renovation #6: Framing/Enclosing the new kitchen

12-12-2018 12:48 AM by Tooch | 7 comments »

So before I start, some full disclosure: We are far more along on our project than what I am posting now. In fact, most of these pictures are from exactly 1 year ago today. Makes it very interesting to take a look back and see how much progress we’ve made, and just how much can be done in a year’s time. The first step (no pun intended) was to frame in the new floor so we could have access to our back door again. Then the plywood went down over top of the floor joi...

Tool Tip #35: Aldi Step drill sets

12-11-2018 04:39 AM by robscastle | 14 comments »

OK here is something I would not have normally considered.Using a step drill in wood.These are usually reserved for thin metal and plastics, however I decided to do a test and see if they were suitable for solid and engineered wood. First up the Purchase details. I bought 2 x sets of drills from ALDI. Now the picture shows both sets together in one box so dont be confused.The cost was $12AUD each. Now the technical details. Each individual set had the following contents:- S...

Grandson's Coffee Table #2: Mortises, Beads, and other stuff..

12-11-2018 02:54 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Mortises…Jig was set up… I use the tenon to lay out the mortise…roughly centered on the leg… Easy way was to just trace around the tenon, but that leads to twisted holes, IF the boards more…so, I make two marks where the top and bottom of the mortise will be…go up to the top, mark to spots showing how wide, and where the tenon will be…squares to mark across the leg…used a marking gauge to mark the side walls.. Usual suspects as to chis...

Old Toolbox - They're Still Out There!

12-10-2018 10:19 PM by Phil32 | 4 comments »

I want to introduce you to my grandfather’s toolbox. He was a fine carpenter some years ago. Among his skills was the repair and tuning of pipe organs (you know, some of the pipes are wood.) He also did cabinet work and interior trim – maybe other crafts that I don’t know about. Grandpa died a while back – actually in August, 1941 (!) The toolbox went to live with my dad, stored in a shed in his back yard. About that time I had a chance to look through its conte...

Dollhouse #4: Days four and five: sanding, making bigger window rough ins, build windows, painting and staining

12-10-2018 06:30 PM by FreddieMac | 2 comments »

Spent a couple days in the shop working on the dollhouse again. Right now there is progress, but not much to show. A lot of small cuts and prep work to start putting together stuff. I am bouncing between different aspects of the project more than normal. For example, while waiting for primer to dry on the sides, I worked on windows. I spent a number of hours building a couple of prototype windows based on different designs I saw on the internet. The problem I am having with windows is gett...

Hollowing Tool #1: Jakosh Hybrid Hollowing System

12-10-2018 03:15 AM by Jim Jakosh | 18 comments »

This is a project, but it is not made of wood…....... it is made FOR wood.Our past guild president,Jeff, and I were talking about the need for a better hollowing system over the Jamieson loop arm system that we both have. That system works but it is a bulky on the back end with the big loop and double bar set up.Jeff brought over a Monster brand hollower that he is trying out and I found many different systems on You Tube including the Elbo system which was the first articulated arm s...
