Shop-made Jigs and Fixtures #2: Bench Grinder Workstation

01-05-2011 05:29 AM by Mark Colan | 14 comments »

I bought a Porter Cable grinder and a Harbor Freight grinder stand, to create a bench grinding station. I guess you could call this a Christmas present to myself. I built the grinding workstation during the Christmas holidays. The Bench Top The mounting holes for the grinder were wider than the stand’s holes, and just about as wide as the top of the stand, making it hard to mount it at all. But I had already decided I wanted to put a wood bench between so I could easily mount a...

Quick Progress, Big Setback, Moving Foward...after a break

01-05-2011 04:06 AM by spunwood | 5 comments »

Clamping a cutting board row by row. Two blocks align it along with a vertical clamp. A deadblow mallet levels it. Stephanie came up with this method. I put packing tape on the alignment blocks and on the board they are sitting on to keep them from sticking. Clamping the rows together. After the disaster, back home, having discovered what can be saved. You can see some of the planer gouges. I have been working on an end grain cutting board. I hope to join the ranks soon of the cu...

what i've been doing #6: bow-ties

01-05-2011 03:21 AM by Dave | 0 comments »

I had to stop working on the dovetails because my legs had cured. I wanted to place some bow ties on the joined leg assembly. And needed to do it before I cut the pins in the sides of the leg assembly. As you have probably noticed the whole project is on a 6 in 1 theme. All the leg angles. The bow-ties. I had taken some 4/4, drew out the bow-tie, cut it out on the bandsaw. Then re-sawed the one I made so they would be identical. I didn’t want to place the bow-tie all the wa...

Let us hope that this year brings better things to all than the last one did.Pray to the Almighty Carpenter that we get no more earthquakes like the one a year ago in Haiti.Ask Him that we get no more floods and that the one in Australia is dried up soon.Ask Him for understanding between men, that war becomes a part of history and not current events.Pray that you have the strength to turn the other cheek when a comment here hits you the wrong way.Pray for the patience to count to ten before h...

Frame and Panel Doors

01-04-2011 10:56 PM by joshtank | 4 comments »

So i’m fairly new to this woodworking thing. I made some corner shelves, a few small keepsake boxes. I’ve mostly been on the endless journey of setting up the shop properly. Anyway, half of my garage space is a music room. It has two windows, and I have neighbors. No one ever complains about noise, but I was thinking it’d be the neighborly thing to do to halve these windows be covered when we’re rockin. I also thought maybe then any less-than-neighborly people wh...

DragonFly Harp #4: 1/4/2011 Completed Model

01-04-2011 07:05 PM by Donna Menke | 14 comments »

Here is a good example of just how difficult joinery is with foam. Lots of slop and instant gratification- not at all like wood. Wonder if one can play a foam harp- nah.The foam model has been assembled for the first time- with toothpicks, tape, and chewing gum (just kidding about the gum). I tried to glue some parts with Titebond, but it never dried and didn’t stick well. I’ve decided to return to the original plan to end the bottom of the pillar outside of the sound box. Hope it...

DragonFly Harp #3: Making the Pink Harp

01-04-2011 06:31 PM by Donna Menke | 3 comments »

Started the new year off right with many hours in the shop working on the harp project. I’ll try to keep track of my hours- a good guess would be about 10 hours to date.I don’t kid myself that working with this foam is anything like working with wood, but I need to get a prototype before I can even think about making working drawings.I spent a lot of time trying to get my styrofoam pieces to stay in the right plane before I got the brain storm to make some supportive blocks at the...
