A journey into the workshop. #22: Not much shop time this week. But a little bit of progress...

10-15-2009 04:27 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

My big plans for my week got tossed to the curb between dealing with an unexpected cardiac surgery on my BIL, and work running rather late, I just haven’t had much time in the shop. What evening I did have open to myself (tuesday) was hot and humid, (85 degrees 100% humidity, ICK!) so I did not WANT to be out there… I did get 3 reasonable things done since Sunday though… #1. Removed all the junk from on top of the table saw, and workbench and put it away. Considering t...

Shaped Wooden Hinges #2: The Cutting

10-15-2009 02:39 PM by littlecope | 12 comments »

Yesterday the first installment ended with all the holes having been drilled for the two pairs of hingesIt’s all Scroll Saw work from here! I took a few minutes first to police the area though. It had gotten a little out of hand, even for me!!The work begins with slicing off the waste area which exposes the side drilling.Next is the beginning of the shaping. Side cuts first. These are a bear to cut!! Scroll Saws are not Chop Saws! They’ll do this sort of cutting, through about 1 1...

Design Thoughts on a Shaker Inspired Bench Video Re-edit

10-15-2009 06:47 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 15 comments »

I am not attempting to milk this out, but I was very unsatisfied with my edit job on the first release so I worked it over again. This version is actually 9 seconds shorter but I have added a handful of still images for close-ups to show more detail. This gives added value to the video as it provides greater visual information. This video is not about the how-to for constructing the bench. It really is about the design and thought process for creating it. I cover many of the design ele...

Router Table Insert - Done!

10-15-2009 05:33 AM by Jimi_C | 4 comments »

Here it is: And the view of the router from the bottom: You can see the clamp and depth adjustment knob are easily accessible, but if I wanted I could use a T-wrench to adjust the depth from the top of the table. I’m not too concerned about that, since with this Ryobi you need to release that clamp so you have to duck down under the table anyway. So, it works, well enough at least for what I need it to. I’m planning on using it to rout out the dadoes for the rai...

Wall Hung Console #9: (in)layin' around

10-15-2009 05:27 AM by captkerk | 5 comments »

I finally got around to working on the console again and I’m now jumping in with the inlays and edge banding the top to cover my biscuit mistake. I cut some strips of walnut and purpleheart to about 7/8” wide and 3/8” thick that would get sanded down to 1/4”. Since I don’t have a thickness sander, I tried out a jig I saw in an old FWW magazine to use a drum sander on the drill press to accomplish the same task on thin strips. The jig is simply a fixed bo...

Revamping and Updating my Old Shop #5: Interim update. Wiring the Delta 50-760 Sawdust Collector for 220

10-15-2009 03:25 AM by Jim Bertelson | 8 comments »

The Delta 50-760 Sawdust Collector comes wired for 110 volts. Had some issues with lights dimming, especially when running the sawdust collector and one of the big saws. I have decided, therefore, to put the dust collector and the two saws on 220, and then put a line stabilizer on my wifes longarm quilter circuit. The dust collector, in particular, seems to be an amps hog. I had seen a post about the noise level and pitch changing and becoming obnoxious on 220. So I approached it wondering if...

Shrooms #1: Discouraging Day

10-15-2009 12:06 AM by Lisa Chan | 10 comments »

The weather has turned in my area of the US and my landlord has not prepped the property for the deluge we usually get. I spent an hour this afternoon figuring out an alternative water flow for runoff that was coming into our garage and threatening to flood us out. But that wasn’t the first of it. When I initially went into the garage it turned out that the power is busted too. I ended up running an extension from my apartment in order to power the garage door and all my tools. This ...

Alvarado LJs II

10-14-2009 11:38 PM by Tim Marko | 6 comments »

Jay came for a visit today to see my shop and talk wood. The Alvarado LJs have now had 100% attendance at both their meetings. It was fun to talk shop, tools and wood for a while. (Even got a few thoughts about the Boyz!) It made for a great afternoon.
