The New Workbench Journey #7: A Little Re-Do

08-11-2010 12:11 AM by DrJosh | 1 comment »

When I decided that I wanted to build myself a workbench, I realized that this was going to be my first real big project and as such it would be a major learning process. That said, learning is a good thing, but realizing that I screwed something up and I needed to re-do a part was very frustrating. OK, so I’ve learned a ton about the process of milling and squaring rough and construction grade lumber. I’ve learning a fair amount about using project design and using Google Sketchu...

Back in Feb, 2009, after arriving for the first part of my summer holidays, I was wondering for the birthday gift for my 3rd. son, Francisco. All of them are very keen of chess, we have a lot of plastic, Chinese made sets. So I decided it was time to purchase a heirloom chessboard set. I goggled in Buenos Aires city for chessboards, but didn’t find any that drew my attention up.So I goggled worldwide. A lot of Stauton house, fancy sets, etc. But it cropped out an occurence in Youtube : B...

Wood turning tools used for the Salt and Pepper Mills

08-10-2010 09:47 PM by Bob Simmons | 1 comment »

This is in response to a viewer, Helluvawreck who had questions concerning what turning tools were used during the video of the Salt and Pepper Mills. Thoughts:1. Turning salt and pepper mills is essentially spindle turning.2. Due to the length of your wood lathe you may need to bore out on your larger lathe, the drill press, or carefully by hand. However, you may be very well able to bore out on your Jet lathe.3. You can start out with this wood project and you will do fine. Suggestion...

No woodwork today, but......

08-10-2010 06:56 PM by BritBoxmaker | 12 comments »

.....I hadn’t noticed until today that I’ve passed the 1000 post mark. I seem to be averaging about 8 a day. That means I’m an LJ addict, I’m sure. Who cares I like it here. Interesting stuff being made all the time. Good blogs to read, Cozmo’s ‘Why do you do what you do’ question in his blog especially. No shop time today as I’m absolutely shattered after yesterday’s hiccup and the third in a row night with no sleep (not connected, I&#...

Table Saw Renovation

08-10-2010 06:22 PM by DenverDave | 10 comments »

I’m in the process of building a woodworking shop. I picked up a few tools for some minor jobs and decided to make it a hobby, but with the recession, money is tight, so Craigslist is my number one shopping venue. Here is the table saw I picked up and am in the process of restoring. It came from a high school wood shop. It was a little too ugly and rusty to use, so I cleaned it up and painted it. This is what it looks like now: It still needs a bit of work. The height a...

Myrtle Anniversary Shaker Table #11: The Legs (Thanks for the Tip DenverDave)

08-10-2010 01:39 PM by DoctorDan | 4 comments »

The legs. I’ve debated the leg long and hard. Thought of steam bending, bent lamination, straight grain timber, and combinations of the above. In the end I decided to join two pieces to maximize long grain strength… which of course means a joint in the middle. After making a template, rough cutting and machining the piece, I then used a jigsaw to cut a closer but still rough outline of the leg. Using a chisel, a marking knife and some patients I outlined my cuts. ...

Just for Fun... #28: Sawdust Update...

08-10-2010 01:30 PM by littlecope | 13 comments »

I went up to the Folk’s house once again last week to mow the lawn… but it didn’t need it. We’ve had very little rain and are in the “Dog Days” of summer when the grass slows down anyway…So, to pass the time, I combed through the wood stashes that are there… It seems I’ve inherited a pretty large supply of woods (at least for me!).Aside from the pallet full of cribbing blocks, there are various other piles, like this one which is mostly Oa...
