New Computer Desk

10-08-2009 03:42 AM by mkan | 4 comments »

I’ve built my dream computer desk.maple sheathed plywood stained medium brown with a brass trim.It’s not super artistic, but it’s solid furniture built with dados and nails or screws holding it together. once I have the trim finished with rounded brass screws to give it a “riveted” look, I’ll post the finished product.

Tips and Jigs for the Shop #2: Fence ruler with stop block and position indicator.

10-08-2009 03:39 AM by Jim Bertelson | 8 comments »

For many years I have used a ruler on my radial arm saw (RAS) fence, and instead of measuring for crosscuts, I just place a stop block at the proper point on the ruler. This is a second generation solution, to remedy minor issues with effective fence height with my first one. I find that my placement of block is accurate to less than 1/64 of an inch, a few thousands of an inch measured with a digital caliper, in routine use. First I will show you the fence in place on my saw, because then ...

Tips and Jigs for the Shop #1: Introduction - Purpose and Plan

10-07-2009 09:50 PM by Jim Bertelson | 6 comments »

This last week I realized that although I have not been a woodworking hobbyist per se, I have been working some in the shop since the 70’s. Over the years I have encountered a few things that are simple and inexpensive that might be useful to others. I am enjoying the help, suggestions, and comments of Lumberjocks with vast experience and skills that I will never be able to attain. This is one way of trying help others in a systematic fashion. I would like to do even more, but since ...

A journey into the workshop. #18: Quality time with the trash can...

10-07-2009 08:14 PM by dbhost | 5 comments »

I have an evening free! What to do with it? (Oh sure, like that was ever in question!)... The plan for tonight is to wheel the large things out that don’t belong, and start trash bagging up the junk. Thing like empty bottles of Armor All, and who knows what… Hazardous waste gose to the hazardous waste collection center, and junk lumber such as unusable cutoffs, like that piece of kiln dried pine that just splits every time I look at it… go into a bundle, and out to the cu...

Bowed keyboard- Streichklavier #6: back at it- ready for the keyboard

10-07-2009 07:29 PM by JonJ | 3 comments »

In case anyone was following this project, I haven’t given up…I just had to get away from it for a while. I didn’t get in done in time for the festival in May, but I did take it to show what I had done. I had spent so much time in the shop I was really testing my family’s patience, not to mention all the odd jobs that had piled up. The first order of business was pressure washing and sealing a chapel on my mother’s property that the family built as a memorial to...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #11: Shop Reorganization - Day 2

10-07-2009 04:20 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 18 comments »

Getting Closer To Done I don’t think that a person is ever done with organizing the shop but I am getting close to done for this round of organization and resetting the shop. I finished my drywall repairs and painted the wall. I have 3 cans of old paint and all of them are marked “shop walls” but none of them match. My guess is that I did not have them labeled and at some point I opened them for identification, thought it looked like the shop wall color and marked it a...

Old Tools #1: Folding Rule Fiasco--an Appeal for Help

10-07-2009 03:53 PM by naomi weiss | 4 comments »

I got my folding rule from Walt. Anyway, i should have taken a ‘before’ shot. I decided to clean it, and i ended up messing it up, i think. Is it beyond repair? I saw this entry from Chris Schwarz, but i can’t get any Borax here, or oxallic acid. So i am turning to you, my LJ buddies for help!
