Even we are now far away from the original grease box story, I feel I have to tell this story before going back.Here is the original secret Abdel box. What do we know of this secret box then? We know Roy Underhill have seen one in a marked, I have seen some pen boxes made with this system as a child, but besides that I was not able to find out more until:I had a wonderful lunch at an old friend and architect ...

Shop projects #1: I have 468. Do I hear 469?

10-10-2010 01:12 AM by JJohnston | 1 comment »

Today I drilled and installed the top of my downdraft/outfeed table. It’s the top from a “ready to assemble” computer desk/conference table. I wound up with a 39×12 grid of holes. If you do the math, that’s 468 holes to drill and countersink. It took an hour and a half and 4 worn-down old cordless batteries to do it. You can see the 6” long-radius elbow where it’s plumbed into my dust collection system on the left. The top sticks out more on the far si...

The Adventures of Carving, "Green Man" #1: Carving "Green Man" Beginning Steps.

10-10-2010 12:20 AM by Dennis Zongker | 23 comments »

Only about 1/4 of the way done. Showing some carving stages on how to carve “Green Man” This is really fun for me, just having some fun, carving something for myself. When I’m done I will hang him on top of my fire place at home. If I have the extra time I’m hoping to be done in about three weeks. Size 3 1/2” thick x 14” wide x 17 1/2” long. Made out of basswood.

Trial Lawyers and Table Saws

10-09-2010 11:52 PM by smgaines | 31 comments »

I read an article today from Regina, SK about a student that had two fingers cut off in a table saw accident. Let me start off by saying that I feel for anyone that has a serious accident in the workshop. Especially one where you loose fingers. The student is taking legal action against the school for “board negligence, instructor incompetence and shoddy equipment”. I read on thinking that maybe a fence was damaged or that there was a misalignment of the blade, but when you re...

10-09-2010 10:30 PM by degoose | 7 comments »

In this series we will be talking Custom…. a custom made Torque WorkCentre that is..A short time ago I was approached by a rather large Cabinetmaking/Joinery company with regards a special job they need to do…It seems that as part of a multi million dollar contract,  they need to make a variety of desks, both stand alone and with returns [ so this means that some have two gable ends and some only one..].  The desks were made from 54 mm [just over 2 inches] thick plywood ranging in...

"Suspended 4" - the unsuspended table

10-09-2010 07:24 PM by KnickKnack | 2 comments »

Ah – what a trail of disaster this was. However, something came out in the end, albeit not what was originally designed, but something OK. The original design work for this, if you could call it that, is in this picture… I’d decided to go with… I picked out the beech plank I was going to use – I was looking for a subtle grain pattern to accentuate the spiral – I flattened it, edged it, and then panic set in and I lost my nerve. I’m no...
