Drill chuck kept falling out

08-08-2009 08:43 PM by dustyal | 8 comments »

I was drilling a hole to attempt a method of mounting shop vac attachments. Used a hole drill I picked up at Harbor Freight real cheap. The hole saw worked okay… not the best grant you, but okay… the bigger issue was that my drill chuck fell off of its shaft. I was using my Delta bench top drill press and the chuck is a pressed on fitting. I cleaned up the conical shaft and the inside of the chuck to assure real clean… no oil or grease. Went back to drillin’ and i...

Fireplace Construction #2: A little more progress

08-08-2009 07:20 PM by kcZ | 5 comments »

I devoted some more time to the fireplace project. Created the mantle. All pictures so far are unfinished, in fact, everything is just set into position. I am still trying to figure out how to secure this to the wall. I will likely also continue the wall behind the fireplace to the ceiling and mount the television to the wall. Lately I have been leaning towards a frame and panel type wall instead of painted drywall.

Large bench made from the tree that stood in the grounds.

08-07-2009 07:20 PM by mreagleeyes | 18 comments »

I am working on yet another piece and thought I’d share me project so far with you guys. The Magnolia ‘Salicifolia’ tree had stood in the grounds of the Inner Temple on London’s Thames for over 80 years but due to a fungus it had to come down. My original plan was to use the timber as a practice piece that I could use my new Arbortech grinder on, however whilst the guys where cutting the tree down the girl in charge of the gardens asked what I would do with the t...

A big Ficus bowl - nearly 10" (hey, that's big for me!)

08-07-2009 03:35 PM by Gary Fixler | 11 comments »

In the first half of this blog post, I cut up a Ficus log and made a nearly 11” round for later turning into a bowl. I sealed every part of it in Anchorseal. Flash forward about 12 days, this past Saturday, and I finally chucked it up and made a bowl. Unfortunately, as with everything Ficus I’ve ever sealed, it was covered with mold by this point, and a little bit stinky. I figured I’d turn the mold away. I went with a faceplate on the soon-to-be-concave side: ...
