Ruminations, Philosophy, and Workshop Antics.......... #4: A little progress on the table saw switch

11-05-2009 05:22 AM by Jim Bertelson | 7 comments »

Work has been interfering with my life again….rats. Got enuf time in the shop today to finish the bearings on the switch. They provide the sliding surface for the dowel that flips the switch. The bearings, and stops now eliminate unwanted rotation, over depression, or over extension of the switch. Meaning, it you can’t push it in too far, pull it out too far or somehow turn it…....all to avoid stressing the toggle switch. So just a little bit of plywood, the actual face t...

Carpenter's Tool Box for soon-to-be two year-old boy

11-05-2009 05:16 AM by NBeener | 12 comments »

My wife’s grandson is somehow about to turn two. Time to turn him on to tools, huh? That’s the primary reason I’ve been taking a whack at dovetail joints. The tool box is in dry fit, right now. In the next day or two, I’ll move to glue-up. The cuts in the ends of the handle are for wedge/shims to hold the handle in place. The pics: ....Current plan is to fill it with something like this….. I did something wrong with the plywood bottom. The ...

Countdown to.... (the prototype)

11-05-2009 03:20 AM by clieb91 | 5 comments »

Ok so this is a quick glance at how my (and sometimes my wife’s mind works)... We were looking at the clearance halloween merchandise and I bought a countdown timer to use next year. When we got home we were talking about the timer and if there might be other uses for it. We are taking a vacation in the upcoming months and thought it would be cool if we could count down for it to help get our daughter excited. Decided to make a new timer using the halloween one. But kept talking ...

Some of you have asked if I would give a discount to the Lumber Jocks community. The answer is Yes. I have been adding new products but I don’ t have much on yet. Also I will be adding an artist corner there so you guys can sell your produces for free. I will let you know when I get that module up.

Meet Jack... the stripper #1: Meet Jack... the stripper

11-04-2009 07:59 AM by RedWoodzard | 13 comments »

Hi thanks for stopping by. I am currently in the process of learning wood working, and before I jumped right into it I wanted to take my time to go and learn how the old school guys did things before my time. Sure you can go out and buy one of them fancy planers or jointers, and complete a job a little faster, but doing things that way there is no learning involved. Once you have put the wood thru the planer and it comes out the other side, thats it buddy, your on to the next step of what...

Jigs #1: Sharpening Machine / Jig part 1

11-04-2009 07:58 AM by Alonso | 14 comments »

I’ve been working on this Jig for quite a while now, about 2 months perhaps. I got to say that I’m very pleased with the final results, even thought there still some minor flaws that I need to complete (but I feel that the main part is ready to be shared) This jig was published on Shopnotes #107 just in case anyone would like to try to build this one too. I already tried on my drill press and works like a charm. I hope by this weekend to be able to add some kind of finish, t...

Pangapanga sideboard #1: Top laminates and curved inlays

11-04-2009 06:29 AM by RobertHorton | 1 comment »

Used the old trick of a straight board and a router to get a glue-able edge on the Panga laminates for the top. One set is gluing already and we’ll move on to the next tomorrow. Pulled open the form and revealed my curved inlay stock for the top also. I was worried that the aluminum would be too springy, but the glue held just fine. I only need to get two arcs out of this, so there’s plenty of room to goof the first cut.
