Building a Picture Frame for a Fish Print

10-23-2016 10:11 AM by beahan | 0 comments »

This picture frame was specifically made to house a fish print of a fish I caught earlier this year. I included a miniature frame within the frame in order to hold the lure I used to catch the fish. I know I will get comments on the lack of finish, but I chose to leave it without a finish because I thought it looked nice the way it is. View on YouTube

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #82: Hand Plane Till

10-23-2016 01:31 AM by Paul Bucalo | 2 comments »

Earlier today I made a down-and-dirty hand plane till. Yesterday I hung the Stanley No. 5 and 6 on individual racks—lift up and pull out. Now it looks like I didn’t have many. I guess not, but they sure took up a lot of bench top space before. Do I buy more planes and added on for them, or do I use the free space on the left for something else? Nah. You can never have too many hand planes. :)

Bridge City Tools: TenonMaker TM-1 #2: Kerfmaker Shop Made JIG

10-23-2016 01:16 AM by HappyHowie | 1 comment »

Since Bridge City Tool Works do not have their KM-1 Kerfmaker in stock and they are without any indication if they will be making others, I have decided to make a similar jig in my shop. I have just a few more steps to complete this kerfmaker jig. 1) cut 1 inch off the top piece and glue it one end of the bottom piece. 2) With the top and bottom pieces fitted together drill a hole through both piece centered on their width and 1 1/2 inches away from the glued end. This hole w...

Does construction lumber ever dry to 6-9% MC?

10-22-2016 04:24 PM by airlyss | 12 comments »

Hi everyone, Just had a quick question about moisture content on dimensional lumber! I’m building a small dining table for a friend and using 2×8 SPF boards for the tabletop. They have have been sitting in my climate controlled basement for about 10 weeks now and I’m measuring MC of 11-14% still. Just for fun, I measured the 2×6s that were used to frame our basement walls (our house is 5 years old) and they came in at 10-12%. I have some maple and walnut in the same...

Bridge City Tools: TenonMaker TM-1 #1: My New TenonMaker TM-1

10-22-2016 04:57 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

I ordered a Bridge City Tools TenonMaker TM-1. It arrived yesterday. It is a small device. I am still trying to get experience with it. I was also interested in ordering their KM-1 Kerfmaker tool, but it was not in stock, or not a stock item. I believe customers must indicate that they would order this tool if Bridge City Tool made another production run. However, I am not sure if they are going to make the Kerfmaker again. Since I am left wonder on this subject, I am going to attemp...

Toy costruction #115: Sprint race car gas tank, gluing it together.

10-21-2016 09:23 PM by htl | 10 comments »

The tires you will see here are just leftovers from other project but help get an idea what’s going on.There’s a lot more to this project than is first seen when looking at it just on a shelf as I discovered when I started building one..Of course making a frame out of dowels had something to do with that. It’s interesting how they designed the manifold, may be using this idea on other projects.

Summer Uke Build #6: Cutting Soundhole Making Radius Dishes

10-21-2016 07:16 PM by onoitsmatt | 0 comments »

Today’s update is a bit incomplete. I cut out the soundhole and sanded down the olive wood rosette to be a little more level with the top. I bought a drum sander in the interim as I just don’t trust myself to flatten and thickness the top with any accuracy. I’ll send the top through the drum sander sometime soon to get the finished thickness/flatness for the rosette and top. I put the back behind it for contrast in the photo. I also have started trying to figure...
