Ye Old Compressor

08-29-2010 01:52 AM by dustbunny | 24 comments »

While in the midst of organizing the shop, I moved my compressor and realized how old it is. However, it runs like a champ. It is a bit slow initially to come up to full pressure,but once there it runs everything I need it for, namely air sanders and nail gun. This ol’ boy belonged to my husbands father, who if he was still alive today would be 106 years old. Wow !It has a General Electric 1/2 hp motor on it which is the size dimensionally of todays 3hp motors.They don’t make t...

"Victorian Style Bed" Headboard Carving's

08-29-2010 12:33 AM by Dennis Zongker | 21 comments »

Hi Everyone, This year sure is flying by. Here are some step pictures of a “Center Headboard Fan Carving,” and a little peek at the carved back panels, out of solid cherry. I’ve been working on this bed for two months. I’ve been having a blast working on this bed. With all the carving and bending. The economy has been really slow, we have been very lucky to still be busy. “Knock on wood” We have had to be leaner and more productive this year. Also, We...

A journey into the workshop. #64: 3 large(ish) boxes gone, and a mess more light... Free stuff for Houston / Galveston area LJs.

08-28-2010 10:27 PM by dbhost | 2 comments »

Okay almost gone. At least they are empty now… Now that I have the majority of the fence material out in the back yard, being installed, I had some time to put up my last 2 shop lights… Which may not seem like much, but those boxes take up a bunch of room in my shop, not to mention the last 2 bulbs in the original case of bulbs. So now the shop has a grand total of 6, 4 foot, 2 bulb shop light fixtures neatly arranged along the ceiling, and one that is still somewhat will ni...

Roll Top Secretaries Desk #1: Tambour is done

08-28-2010 09:34 PM by Jim | 7 comments »

Making the tambour door was quite a project. I’ve made them before using a traditional canvas backing to which the slats are glued. I wanted to do something different on this one. As I was thinking about what to do, Rockler happened to send me an ad for their Tambour Router Bit Set. I ordered them and below is the result as well as some of the difficulties I encountered. This is an overall view of the tambour. Obviously it’s not installed in the desk yet. That’s co...

Revamping my Delta Contractor Saw #6: The First Cut Reveals a Problem

08-28-2010 03:53 PM by Mark Colan | 6 comments »

Completing the Alignment Procedure I talked about completing the alignment procedure for the right side of the blade last time. Now it’s time for the left side. Moving the positioner base unit towards that side showed an immediate problem: it gradually got harder to do it. I figured out that the rails must not be parallel, and confirmed it with my tape measure. Note to Incra: add to the instructions that you push the rail all the way into the bracket as you tighten the bolt. R...

Mikros Kosmos #19: And we're back

08-28-2010 02:55 PM by tyskkvinna | 13 comments »

Hey everybody! Haven’t been able to make any progress on this project lately, due to lots of travelling and then the work backlash that happens after lots of travelling.. Last night I had some time avaiable and decided to work on this. I am using simple balsa wood for the frame of this. There’s no reason to use anything heavier. So, I glued together the base frame and then glued some heavy cardboard to it. I considered using wood for the bottom, since traditionally pl...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #86: I'm Baaaack! What a terrific day!

08-28-2010 01:42 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Well you could have all figured that I would be late with the blog this morning. That was kind of a given. We got up at 4:30 yesterday morning and hit the road and we didn’t get home until after 9pm. We were tired, but quite excited and wound up and I didn’t get to bed until after midnight. I woke at 5:15 this morning and got a drink of water and went promptly back to bed. It just wasn’t time yet! What an incredible day we had! It was perfect from start to finish. ...
