Kite Camera Reel #8: The Reel Deal...

11-26-2009 08:10 PM by CaptainSkully | 5 comments »

Here’s the kitecam footage with a little background music. If you want a funnier/naughtier version, browse to YouTube by clicking the link at the bottom right and look at our other videos (Warning: Explicit). Remember, I warned you. Little pitchers… We’re flying to the British Virgin Islands tonight! I’ll post some more video of exotic locales. Happy Thanksgiving to all of my fellow LJ’s and their families.

Chop Saw Dust Hood #2: Top & Bottom of the Plenum Box Added

11-26-2009 12:15 PM by BlankMan | 7 comments »

Now I’ve added the top and bottom to the plenum box in the back of the collection hood. The idea of the plenum box is to equally distribute the vacuum along the whole length of the opening to collect the sawdust. The 4” duct will connect to the top of the box, inside the plenum 2/3 down from the top is a divider board that splits the box into two chambers. The divider board has three holes in it, a 2-1/4” hole in the middle and two 2-3/8” holes one at each end. What I ...

Handplane Restoration #25: Stanley 112 Update

11-26-2009 06:45 AM by WayneC | 5 comments »

Just a quick update. I ordered and recieved a Hock replacement blade for the plane from Craftsman Studio. While I was at it, I had a moment of weakness and also ordered a Hock burnishing rod. I really like Craftsman Studio, good prices and quick shipping. The burnishing rod comes without a handle so I enlisted one of my friends to turn a quick brass handle. The Hock blade is very high quality and I like the finish. Photos are below. I also have a some evapo-rust on order. Once t...

Chair back spindles fitted and arm rests cut to rough shape

11-26-2009 06:19 AM by John | 1 comment »

Hello LJ’s, I cut the tenons for the spindles on my table saw today with the tenoning jig I made and posted on this site. I really like that tenoning jig. Here is a video I took a while back. I dry fit the chair back and stood it up in the frame of the chair to get a look. I then started work on the arm rests. I cut the top rails on the chair sides on the band saw to match the curve of the armrests then template routed them on the router table. Here is a photo of the ...

Shoot your edges #1: New Shooting Board

11-26-2009 06:15 AM by parkerdude | 0 comments »

Hi Everyone, I decided to remake my shooting board because my first try left a little to be desired. I wanted more accuracy and I didn’t have the ability to shoot 45° mitres. I started with some reclaimed 3/4” common plywood and a piece of hardboard. I had an extra piece of walnut that I’d cut, so I had all the wood that I needed. I spent some time surfing the net for ideas an found a few good ones.

Kite Camera Reel #7: Reel Progress...

11-26-2009 05:43 AM by CaptainSkully | 5 comments »

Not much to say. I’ve got some video editing stuff to figure out (upside down footage – camera is currently dangling upside down underneath the rig – and how to play some sappy sailing music in the background), but otherwise it was a success. I’m going to coat all the parts with three coats of Arm-R-Seal to try to keep the saltwater out. Wait until you see the footage from the kitecam!

Entertainment Center #4: Dovetails complete

11-26-2009 05:16 AM by Loogie | 4 comments »

I got just enough shop time today to finish up the dovetails on the top & sides of the carcass. Just as I was preparing to start cleaning out the waste between the pins the mail man showed up with an early christmas present. I ordered this sweet dovetail chisel from Czeck Edge while I was at the Woodworking In America conference back in October. It showed up at the perfect time. It worked beautifully to be able to clean out the corners between the tails. Here you can see the...
