I made these brackets out of New Guinea Rosewood…. just need to drill a 40mm hole to thread a 40 mm Tasmanian Oak dowel through… There are six of them … three for each side of the L-shaped bar.

Christmas is coming!!!

10-30-2010 12:18 AM by cwdance1 | 5 comments »

Well didn’t get much work in the shop this summer and now I’m trying to get a few projects out for Christmas. Here is the finish table as it is already to cold out in the shed. Another very big thanks to Andy for it is his blog on here that inspired me to try my hand at making these boxes. So far the boxes are made out of oak, cherry and red cedar. The red cedar box I have claimed for myself but you never know around my house. I will post the finished boxes in projects ...

"Carving out a place for Myself"

10-30-2010 12:16 AM by mpounders | 10 comments »

So here is the first entry on my new blog! I have always been interested in art since I was young. I particular enjoyed drawing, especially super heros. When I was in junior high, I casually sauntered into the art classes that were starting and pretended that I had actually signed up for them and I was supposed to be there. Either they never figured it out or someone was kind enough to support a kid who reaaaalllly wanted to be in art class. I had hopes of continuing art in college, but being...

Now I have cut dovetails by hand, so it’s time to play with machines again…This time some finger joints, since it’s a learning experience. I bought some years ago a router template for finger joints, and half blind dovetails.I paid 100$ on a sale and never opened the box… So now it was time! I found a 10 mm router bit as the set needed, and made a test cut on some plywood… O...

Stanley Bailey Plane Restoration #2: No. 5-1/2 Sweetheart

10-29-2010 11:27 PM by BradJacob | 1 comment »

He we go again. This is a no. 5-1/2 Sweetheart that was is relatively great condition. All it really “needed” was a good cleaning and maybe a little polishing of the brass. The handle and tote are all in great condition with no chips or cracks. The iron and chip breaker as pretty clean and are free of any pitting. And 90% of the Jappaning is still there. BUT – I like to fully restore them, so begins the process again. Below are some pictures of the plane bed – all w...

Shop Renovation #4: Lots of Warmth in the Shop

10-29-2010 09:45 PM by Lenny | 30 comments »

Hi. It’s been about a month since my last update. John, my contractor, has left the building. He did a fabulous job completing this expansion project over the summer. I am delighted with the end result. Thank you John. Once John finished, I began working on the interior space. I continued the electrical wiring from the old shop, into the new, making sure to include plenty of receptacles, including some up in the “ceiling” area. For lights, I decided on four 2 ft. b...

10-29-2010 08:48 PM by jimofalltrades | 8 comments »

I came to this site cuz i did a google about this topic. I have a med sized air compressor that is technically portable. It came with wheels and a bar to carry it with. I have since put it up in the air. I had to do this because of floods and it did get flooded in the past, i have drained it and my dad got it to pressurize again after using some oil to make it work again. It is an oilless compressor. I have used half in sch 40 pvc its rated at 600 psi. the dials on my compressor dont...

Hardwood Inlays made in the Woodworking Shop

10-29-2010 08:46 PM by Bob Simmons | 2 comments »

“Whether you think that you can, or that you can’t, you are usually right.” ...Henry Ford (1863-1947) As we near the holidays it’s time to start planning ahead for gifts that will be made in the woodworking shop. In the picture you can see many wood segments that have been cut on the dedicated miter sled for the table saw. It’s quite important that the angles of the segments are consistent so that they line up tightly within the decorative wood pattern. H...
