30 Projects in 30 Days #4: Half way there, 15 projects complete

06-19-2009 04:34 AM by darryl | 3 comments »

Today marks my halfway point in this challenge! I have to say this really is a challenge. If there is a struggle to find time for the shop, there is also a struggle to find a way to get the projects posted! I’m going to to my best and try and get all 30 projects completed before June 30. Here are the latest submissions for my challenge: yes, there are more wine bottle stoppers… but I also found time to make some pens… inbetween making bottle stoppers of course...

Setting Up Shop #3: Whoooaaaa Tonto...... Back the Truck Up!

06-19-2009 04:15 AM by stidrvr | 2 comments »

I should probably tell you all that Im very good at reinventing the wheel. In fact I actually have a few patents filed. So as I was cleaning out the garage trying to figure out where all this stuff was going to go, I started to figure out wiring and what not. Pricing things out and realizing what I wanted to do was going to cost a lot more then I thought. Not only that the fact that it’s really starting to get hot out and with no insulation in the attic, it really going to get warm. So...

Possible Inlay Project - Suggestions??

06-19-2009 02:21 AM by Derrek LeRouax | 3 comments »

So, I am in the process of a myriad of “home” projects (shelves in kids rooms, re-finishing painted furniture, attic shelves, etc…), and have been spending my free time trying to figure out my next project. I am big on “form follows function”, so I want any project I endevor on to serve a purpose. I also want to continue my journey in woodworking, so I want to try something I have never done before, hence INLAYS. I have seen some great projects with even bette...

Using a router to make the "Lazy Larry" #1: Making the "Lazy Larry" using a router and router jig.

06-19-2009 02:14 AM by Ampeater | 8 comments »

Degoose showed us how to make the jig that uses a bandsaw to make the spiral sections of his “Lazy Larry”. Well I made the jig, but my old small bandsaw just wasn’t up to the task. I wasn’t about to quit, so I decided to try to make a jig that I could use with my router. It took me awhile to figure it out (using Sketchup), but once I did, it was rather easy to make the jig. Here is how to make the jig. Picture 1. 1. Cut a 3/4” thick piece of MDF ...

Tool Tuneup #1: Dewalt Planer Knife Change

06-18-2009 11:03 PM by Jon3 | 2 comments »

I’m in between projects at the moment. This is a rare time for me. Usually I have more than one going. I decided to take the time now that I’ve finished the drill press table to go ahead and do both some shop cleanup, and some tool tuneups. First up is flipping the knives in my Dewalt 735. This planer has indexable insert knives, and I’ve never flipped them before. I’ve probably run a few thousand board feet through the original set. While it still cuts fairly ...
