Next step is to make the ends of the segments curved. Shell-like if you want.For that we need a new jig.. Yeah I know some of you haven’t finished the first one..!This is ultra simple.Firstly a fresh piece of ply .. 1/4 ” is fine.I inserted a bearing to make this more durable .. same same as last one.This was positioned 4.5 ” from the end[centred on the width] and an arc cut on the end via the circle cutting jig.. same same.Cut two fences same as the one of the first jig ...
Hey Guys and Gals, Just wanted to post an update on what I have been up to. On Monday June 1st we set up our booth at the craft mall (will post pics soon). I have been busy getting stock ready for it. I have also made some card displays to have descriptions of our product. Tearen—those banister railings from Rich Devos’ place make awesome votive candle holders. I am using some of the dark wood that you gave me to make card holders. So as you can see I have been quit...
I am hoping someone can help me with this. Recently when I have been finishing my projects I have noticed little black spots form on the wood. I figure it was mold that had grown on the wood since my shop in our basement. So the next time I finished a project I put the dehumidifier in the room and used wood fresh from the lumber yard. The same thing happened!!! Does anyone know what this is or have run into it before?
I turned this hollow form from a piece of silver maple that was cut down 30 days ago. The turning was done start to finish all in one day – a uniform wall thickness of 1/4” inch and no pith resulted in very little movement of the wood. After living in a brown paper bag for the last 30 days the piece managed to escape and found itself attached to my vacuum chuck and got sanded all the way to 400 grit. Since this piece had very little character as it was I decided to apply alcoho...
Hi all, I’ve purchased this WE an old Ridgid JP0610 jointer on Craigslist and after cleaning and changing the blades, I’m left with a little issue. I can’t seems to be able to adjust the outfeet table height. There is a know under the outfeet table but I can only turn it 1/4 turn one way or another. I’ve noticed that there is a screw on the fence side and according to the user manual, one is supposed to lock it down to remove the play in the sliding mechanism of ...
All thats left now is making a drawer. I have some oak on my rack but I also have some oak flooring that is plenty big enough for the small drawer. That finish is very hard. Its “special” and you should resaw this stuff off before using it. Don’t run it through your jointer or planer. After I slice the finish off with my bandsaw, milling this stuff was very easy. I cut them a hair long and to the correct width. These pieces are 1/4” thick. I’m...
FOR OUR HEALTH **WE ALL NEED A LAUGH OR AT LEAST A CHUCKLE ........OR A NEW JOB…!!!!... Did I read that sign right? ‘TOILET OUT OF ORDER. PLEASE USE FLOOR BELOW’ In a Laundromat: ‘AUTOMATIC WASHING MACHINES: PLEASE REMOVE ALL YOUR CLOTHES WHEN THE LIGHT GOES OUT’ In a London department store: ‘BARGAIN BASEMENT UPSTAIRS’ In an office: ‘WOULD THE PERSON WHO ...
This is a bit old now, as I built these starting in late March this year, but I’m expanding them a bit now, and wanted to post some updates on that. That requires getting off my butt and posting the original stuff I’ve dragged my heels on. With the trees that have fallen over, and the random large branches I’ve managed to find here in LA, I had an awful lot of logs for a 0.18 acre lot. I recently mapped out my tiny 0.18 acre lot, breaking it into 30 equally sized squares, an...
I am not really sure if this should go in tool review but as I am not really reviewing it.. here in blogs it goes.This little beauty is a digital angle finder.. I know you all have one in your workshop but for many years I have been guessing and using all manner of devices to make angles other the 90 and 45.Set It on the surface you want to reference from..ie the table saw top and turn it on and zero it.Place it on the blade and wind to the desired angle.. it has 3 little magnets to hold it t...
Just a quick peak at what I got up to today when I was not checking the hundreds of emails from all the LJs who commented on my last few posts.. Thank you very much.. I did not realize how much of my daily routine now revolves around this site.. Addictive…I also had time to drive the twenty odd miles into the big smoke..Brisbane and go shopping at Carba-tec..I know I have all the fun..A coupla new router bits..some very expensive toggle clamps [for a new jig to make the sunburst design...
