MDB #3: So many cubes - GULP! ....I mean GLUP..... um - GLUE UP

08-02-2010 06:23 AM by PurpLev | 5 comments »

Disclaimer: This blog follows my Magen David Board that is already finished and posted here This phase of the project took on a different pace. it was all hand tools oriented, and I was able to work on it at nights and at quick sessions as there was little setup involved, and not a whole lot of noise. To start. I took my old drill press table that was just hanging around the shop useless after I upgraded it and screwed a straight piece of cherry left over from my milling process to act ...

HomeMade Bandsaw #1: How the journey started

08-02-2010 05:51 AM by ChrisCarr | 5 comments »

About 3 weeks ago I decided I needed a bandsaw. I wanted to start building “fine” things such as furniture and didn’t have a machine to easily cut curves with. All I had used before was a jigsaw (and sometimes a router for copying designs). Like usual I check the internet to see what was available. I wanted a Bandsaw at least 12 inches so I could do resawing as well. However most 12 inch bandsaws were $350 minimum, I wanted to spend no more than $150 since I can’t real...

Building my dream shop #8: Mobile home nightmare

08-02-2010 05:48 AM by rep | 3 comments »

I expected to have some repairs to do when I purchased the used trailer, but this has exceeded my expectations. Been trying to get a sour smell out of the trailer since I got it. So far have removed flooring in laundry room, partial wall in laundry room, door to laundry room, partial wall in kitchen, kitchen cabinet, and today – pulled up the two layers of vinyl flooring in the kitchen. On the up side, I have removed all carpet and vinyl, buried the water line from the well, r...

MDB #2: Shave and a Cut - Cross Cut that is

08-02-2010 05:30 AM by PurpLev | 5 comments »

Disclaimer: This blog follows my Magen David Board that is already finished and posted here At this point (see previous post for the methodology I chose to take for this project) , I realized that my plan for mass production, and gluing the long strips to one another to make the geometry would cause more trouble, and decided to cross cut them all to their final thickness instead, and in a way changed my work order to a ‘one of’ setup, albeit it would have been better if I did t...

Extremely Average #212: Extra Credit

08-02-2010 05:10 AM by Ecocandle | 1 comment »

Hello All, Today I tried out a trick I read about, to help fix small gaps in the corner of tiny boxes. I suppose it would work on a box that wasn’t tiny, but I only have tiny boxes, so I can’t say for sure. The point is, it worked marvelously and were I being graded on my boxes, the C- that I think they would have gotten, has been adjusted to a solid B! Today I had a triumph. http://su.pr/1aCtZs Brian

The New Workbench Journey #6: And so it begins...

08-02-2010 05:05 AM by DrJosh | 1 comment »

After letting the lumber I purchased get happy in my garage shop for the past 2 weeks, and playing around with and debating over various bench designs, I’ve officially started the process of building my new workbench. I decided on building a Nicholson-style workbench similar to the one in Chris Schwarz’s book. This weekend, began the process by milling up the stock for the bench legs and aprons. The leg blanks ended up at 2.5+ inches thick and 5 inched wide. The aprons have been m...

I Converted !!

08-02-2010 04:28 AM by dustbunny | 10 comments »

From one of my earlier blogs, you may know that I have a Grizzly 24” dual drum sander, an awesome Craigslist score. The original sander comes with felt on the drums an you roll the paper onto it. I have been doing this since I got the machine. I find the paper likes to wander then tear. I have even had assistance in getting the tensioner as tight as I possibly can, the paper still likes to roam. Last May when I went to Grizzly tent sale, I ordered the hook and loop conversion kit for...
