Quarter Round Display Shelf #6: Many Firsts

07-01-2009 05:56 AM by sIKE | 7 comments »

I have been working on this project time permitting. Had end of school year stuff with the kids, a surprise visit from some relatives, and of course been busy traveling for work, so it has been interment to say the best :( So, I got this puppy glued up a couple of weekends ago. After fighting with a shelf that I messed up on and had to remake a new one. Talk about frustation, nothing went right with it and it took me a couple of weeks just to build one new shelf.Now this project has had many...

My stuff is starting to sell

07-01-2009 03:56 AM by Rustic | 7 comments »

Hey Guys and Gals, Just thought that I would let you all know that I sold another cribbage board (seperate from the craft mall). I also made a double business card holder that can hold at least 5 different sets of business cards. I will try to get a pic of it soon. Sold the board for $15.00 and the card holder for $10.00. I am working on some new stuff for the craft mall too. The bed is on a temp hold until I can get the money together for it. Rick

AP400 filter upgrade!

07-01-2009 02:33 AM by Gary Fixler | 13 comments »

I got an exciting shipment in today – a canister filter for my Delta AP400 Shopmaster 1HP dust collector! Suction has been declining a lot these last months. The bag has been getting dirty but I just hate spending an hour blowing dust out of the thing. I’m always in a rush, stealing time wherever I can to work on something. It’s also a really filthy task. Some people have backyard decks as big as my entire back yard, and I end up getting dust all over my house, garage...

Traditional Chinese Woodworking #2: Preparing stock

07-01-2009 01:05 AM by chscholz | 7 comments »

It’s all about efficiency.For us hobbyists it is interesting to see how full-time hand tool users perform the dreaded task of stock preparation. Well, it’s all about efficenty. It is important to note that Liu Shifu currently does not have an apprentice who would possibly be helping preparing stock. Yes, he would like to see someone take over his shop, continue his life’s work so to speak, but this is not an option at this point. In some way it is lucky that we met Liu Shif...

Woodshop #1: My workshop

06-30-2009 06:18 PM by Workbench_Warrior | 6 comments »

Ever since the 70’s when I bought my first Saw RAS (Radial Arm Saw) from Sears I have started adding equipment to my shop in the hopes that if I were lucky enough to make it to retirement I would have a well-equipped shop. Though I never had much free time to use any of it, I did manage to get probably more tools than I may ever need (Nah! No such thing as too many tools lol) But now that I did manage to retire last year I am getting my shop in order and setup the way I want it while al...

Box Fan Into Buffer

06-30-2009 05:13 PM by PineInTheAsh | 7 comments »

Re: The box fan that has been under discussion on LJ for dust collection. Can you remove the typical 5-fin plastic blade on a box fan and turn it into a buffer or put it to other such use? I have the popular under $20. Lasko 20” box fan sold by the big box stores. With its size it would seem a candidate for a nice, slow-turning buffer or even a fine-grit sander. Of course, this all depends on the the motor’s shaft. Is ithe shaft soft plastic? Is it simply too underpowered...

"Art Box" Tutorial #6: The Lid

06-30-2009 04:42 PM by Andy | 11 comments »

Updated 1/15/12 Regarding wood movement:Depending on the wood you use, where you live, and your own personal experience,y ou may want to allow more clearance.This is what works for me. I really dont allow for any movement at this stage. I know this sounds like trouble waiting to happen, but it works just fine for me. Even if we start off with a snug fit, we will still end up with a small gap around the perimeter. This is due to the final sanding and easing of the edges between lid and l...
