Here are the bats after applying four light coats of paint (from a can so sprayed). From Baseball Project I wanted the red bat to have a consistent color for the handle so mixed up a red dye and applied it like a stain. I don’t like the look right now, but when we have a few clear coat finish and black or white baseball tape on the handle – it’s going to look awesome! Believe me Mitch. For the black bat (Sean’s), I am going with a natural maple handle that wil...
Well Folks, it’s been a super-productive day for me (as productive as a full time student with a part time job, a ministry, a woodworking hobby and a girlfriend can be :) ). Before I glued up the rails to the legs I had to take care of some cosmetic details. I measured 1” from every outer bottom corner of the legs and up 3” in the opposing side. I drew a line to connect these marks on the edges and cut them out on the band saw for the foot detail. As you can see, the b...
I’ve been working on a big Stickley designed double bookcase for way too long, but I’m closing in on it now. Finally put the tongue-and-groove back boards on, all the shelves are done (middle shelves are fixed, top and bottom shelves adjustable … it was too tall for me to get a full top to bottom shot, so you can’t see all the shelves in this pic), it’s all glued up and ready for some final sanding. It’s coming out fairly well, if I do say so myself.But it&...
I have a 14 volt Hitachi drill ( about 4 years old). Latley the charge does not hold and I assume it’s the battery life going rather than the drill itself. Since this is my first battery operated drill I’m not sure which is the problem. My instincts tells me it’s the battery…................your input is always well received. Thanks for all your past help. Al
Ok, I didn’t know these Adirondack chairs would generate so much interest. As a result, the plans I sent out to several different LumberJocks didn’t include any construction methods or any provisions for the jigs I used when I constructed them. Here are some pictures of the jigs I made as well as more pictures that I took whilst they were in the making. The idea here is to construct the first chair the way you want it, then make these jigs so that when you make the rest of the c...
Well now is the beginning of my Journey…..I guess I am going to get some evaporust and get started. Ill windup getting a hock blade and frog more than likely…. I got it for $2.50…..along with a 220 block plane for another 2.50….
Working with reclaimed wood is rewarding but can be a real challenge. This particular wood is so hard, I broke a drill bit and got multiple screws stuck in the wood. Oh well, at least a tree wasn’t cut down for this project, yet! Today, I started some assembly. Check out my work. I also wanted to add another picture of the concrete portion of the flywheel for your review. I think I resolved the sizing issue. I was able to weigh the flywheel today and it weighed right at 80lbs.
March 31/09 slowly but surely our gazebo is transforming.bye-bye tarps for a roof and hello sheet metal!!
I thought some people might be interested in my drawknife. It never dulls. Ever. This is a picture (below) of one of my draw knives. I have three but this one is special and very, very different. It was made around 1976 and has been used a lot. The thing is, I can’t dull it, and I can’t sharpen it. Now, I’ve never tried purposely to dull it. I’ve used it mostly to carve guitar necks in mahogany and maple. And I’ve used it on other things too but always respect...
