Workbench #9: Roubo needs some legs

03-06-2011 03:38 AM by HungryTermite | 2 comments »

Today was a fun day! 1st up today was to put the holdfast holes in the legs. This started on the back side of the legs buy counterboring a 1-3/8 hole using a forstner bit. The depth of the counterbore is 1-1/2 inches and this leaves 3-1/2 inches of leg left for the holdfast to grab on to. The Grammercy holdfasts I have supposedly do not work well in pieces thicker than 4 inches. One of the holes lined up with a large knot that was filled with epoxy. You can see here just how far down ...

Grandma's Picture Frame #5: Camera Broken

03-06-2011 03:30 AM by spunwood | 2 comments »

Well, Grandma’s picture frame is pretty much all done. It is a small wallnut frame with some molding…not the kind you get from old milk. I am really happy with them. So happy that I have decided to try selling them locally. I am going to put an ad in the local paper and on craigslist. It is the kind of work that I really enjoy. A relatively straightfoward job with enough variation to keep me interested. I’m sure I will put up some photographs when the camera is fixed, ...

Setting Up Shop #5: Shop Built Router Table for under $30

03-06-2011 12:54 AM by DylanC | 5 comments »

In the short time I’ve been a member of LJs, I’ve learned 2 very important things. First, it really is amazing what a person can do with a shop full of fancy tools and a little know-how. Second, all you really need are a few key tools, some basic skills and plenty of patience to achieve satisfactory results. Sure, I’d like to have a $900 router table with a $300 lift in it, but it’s not going to happen. So I built my own for under $30. I’ll post some picture...

Cello#8 final contours and hollowing out the back

03-06-2011 12:50 AM by techyman2 | 6 comments »

Hi all,THe last entry saw the contour shapes made. These were chacked against the cross section templates. I need to check the form is accurate against the contour plan. Remember the plan shown below. It is used to make comparisons with the existing contours on the cello back. THe contours are drawn on to the back using a simplistic type of surface gauge aka a bit of wood with a pencil held on to a flat surface. The pencil point is set at the height of the contour and this is ma...

Taking the Chevalet (no not Chevrolet) for a Test Drive. #1: Layout and Cutting... and a senior moment

03-06-2011 12:02 AM by shipwright | 16 comments »

So the chevalet is finished and it’s time to take her for a test drive. Like any test drive, you want to really put her through her paces so first up is to find a challenging road, or in this case some intricate clip art. Trace the artwork onto white paper. The veneers are home dyed with concentrated aniline dye in isopropyl alcohol. Tape the backs to keep the tiny bits attached when cutting. Stack the veneers into a packet and attach the pattern with spray adhesive...

Just a little update to let my fellow participants know that I’m still alive. I do apologize for the delay. I had some dental problems and among other things I finally had to get a tooth yanked out, so I haven’t been doing much lately. I got into the shop today for the first time in quite awhile. I finished perfecting the edge angles on the stave’s that weren’t quite right and I got all the dowels finished up and installed. I managed to drill one stave wrong and so I h...
