Adventures in Trace Fork #7: Forces of Nature

08-24-2009 06:31 PM by Tony | 1 comment »

Saturday was a magnificent day for a hike. I spent much of the morning slowly walking about 3 miles of creek bed. For such a small creek, there are some pretty deep holes on it, and circumventing those at times was fun. We have had an unseasonably cool and very wet summer. It has made for very nice hiking weather, but I began seeing leaves changing and falling from the trees in late June. Here’s an example: I posted a photo a couple of months ago showing where Trace Fork had c...

safety #1: stupidity in the shop

08-24-2009 06:12 PM by woodsmithshop | 24 comments »

Wed evening I was working on a project in the shop,and in a split second of stupidity, a 14”x18”x3/4” piece of plywood was caught by the blade on my table saw and thrown back at me and hit me in the gut, it was like being kicked by a mule (I would imagine that is what a mule kick would feel like), I thought I would be ok, but after about an hour I started feeling faint, from loss of blood internally, that was the most scarey feeling I have ever had, I thought, this was it, I...

My Workbench #3: Getting Close to Being Done

08-24-2009 03:12 PM by Jimi_C | 3 comments »

If I never have to cut MDF again, it will be too soon… Unfortunately I’m going to have to trim the edges of the MDF with my router, since I decided to be sloppy and clean it up that way rather than try to make perfect cuts with my circular saw (not likely). At least all the sheets are cut, so I’ll probably take these outside when I’m trimming so I don’t spend another hour vacuuming my garage. Overall, things are getting close to wrapping up, for the primary ...

Skateboard Bed #2: The Axle, Wheels, and Trucks

08-24-2009 02:12 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

I did some proportion work and decided I need 6” wheels. The wheels I found have barring that are made for a ½” axle. For the axle, I went to steel supplier and had them cut some 43” pieces for me. For the trucks I glued up some MDF to come up with a 3” thick block. I sanded down the corners at an angle just to give it some interesting lines and not just a plain cube. I have the axle and the trucks. I needed to find a why to attach them together. My original thought was to use a...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #12: 3-D carving.

08-24-2009 10:19 AM by degoose | 16 comments »

This weekend just gone we did a little bit of 3-D carving.I think we were a little adventurous and we were only moderately successful. Did not really have the right cutters but over all I think It came out fair to muddling. I made a blank out of plywood glued up.. 400 mm by 400 mm by 70 odd mm thick, and used a sun face for the template.Spent a lot of the time scarfing out the waste .. would have been better gluing up a pyramid…. you will figure this out from the photos. [ lucky we had ...

08-24-2009 05:51 AM by RobH | 2 comments »

Hey all, I was hoping to have pictures to post, but I was simply wiped out afer working in the heat and humidity all weekend. I am worn out, but I made a lot of progress on the desk. The feet are done and look awesome. The posts are done, and the top supports are done, for the most part. The only thing I have left to do is notch the center support to fit into the stretcher. The top panel is glued up and the breadboard ends are made and ready to apply to the top. This week looks to...
