My Craftsman 113.298443 restoration

02-27-2011 04:00 AM by David | 2 comments »

I traded my MIG welder for this Craftsman 113.298443 TS. I really wanted a higher-grade TS, but did not get any offers to trade for anything better than this. I was struggling with the decision, but when I saw all the accessories that he included, I jumped at it. It has some slight rust on the top, but is in good shape overall. Here’s the list of goodies:Craftsman sliding miter tableCraftsman sanding discCraftsman Fence GuideTapering jigRip-StrateDust collection chute2 feather bo...

Myrtle Anniversary Shaker Table #18: So that's what it'll look like...

02-27-2011 01:07 AM by DoctorDan | 1 comment »

The Anniversary table has been a long time in the coming. To check proportions and decide on final sizing and shaping I assembled the piece in our small courtyard. The shaker inspired modern table is a 2×1m trestle table with two benches capable of sitting eight comfortably. The benches will be assembled with long screws covered by ebony plugs – keeping the detail of the top. In the shaker design which uses 3/4” timber (cf. 1 1/2” timber in my piece) there...

Yellow & White Birch Logs #5: Or what I did today, matching Log Dog Beds

02-27-2011 12:41 AM by CampD | 1 comment »

I decided to make a matching Log Bed for my Black Lab today,( My Daughter came By and said I have to much time on my hands). I still have lots of odds and ends from this last Log harvest so,... why not. This of course is for camp.I decided to use construction adhesive instead of glue for the dowels, I think it will fill the voids and be much stronger since no screws are used.I will use sisal rope as the mattress frame support (Good thing shes past chewing on stuff) As with the other projec...

02-26-2011 11:19 PM by darryl | 6 comments »

I know this is kind of short and sweet, but i needed to find something to do while I wait for glue to dry! As of this morning I have all 20 segmented rings glued. I’m now working on gluing the rings together to form the hollow vessel blank. ...and since this is such a short little status update, here’s another picture to give you an idea of where this piece is going. yes, you are seeing it right, there is going to be a big hole on one side.

My 10,000th post

02-26-2011 09:58 PM by GaryK | 30 comments »

10,000? No way! I can’t believe that I can talk that much. I’ve been here going on 4 years now and this is the best site I have found on the net. The camaraderie, projects, know-how and help on this site is incredible. If I ever have a question, I know that someone here would most likely have the answer. I want to thank Martin for creating such a great site! Apparently it has been exactly 5 years since he first put it online, so that is a big coincidence. His 5 years a...

Shaving Horse

02-26-2011 09:33 PM by WhiskeyWaters | 6 comments »

I had a class canceled this week for 2 days, giving me 3 hrs to do some workshop building. This shaving horse was built from scrap 2×4s, a few 4×4 oak posts and a broom handle. Lag bolts connect the legs, and the yoke & axle of the swing arm was whittled down to the correct size and fitted with pressure/friction. I’ve never used/taught shaving horses before so this weekend and Monday will be spent in the throes of research. I’ll be putting up a build post...
