The Kitchen Project #2: Door #2

11-30-2009 11:07 PM by End_Grain | 0 comments »

Well just finished my second door. Reduced the stiles to 2.25 inches. For the bottom double panel I simply put the frame together and then moved the one rail until I liked the size, measured and then added 3/4” to the measurement. I like this one better but then again it’s not my kitchen. I’m just the unpaid help, ‘Ya mule!’ I have one remaining fit problem on the upper rail that as I ran it through the shaper I was kicking myself before I even finished. Oh...

Getting on with things

11-30-2009 08:42 PM by mcoyfrog | 12 comments »

Those of you who know me can understand the funk I’ve been in for a while now. In the last year my wife was diagnosed with cancer, shortly after i lost my job, and just recently my wife has developed some other health issues that look like they will put her out of her profession to boot. I’ve spent the entire year trying to get steady work and there just isn’t any of it there to be had in my field. So i’ve taken all sorts of part time jobs here and there just to keep a...

Sprocket Clock

11-30-2009 06:49 PM by GoGoZRX | 2 comments »

A fellow motorcyclist and long time friend of mine is getting married, despite my ardent advice to run. Since I’m obligated to provide some sort of item to mark the occasion, I decided to make something on the lathe. Since both he and his fiancĂ© ride, I wanted to make something motorcycling-related – but things turned on the lathe don’t have much practical use in that area… Or, at least, I couldn’t think of one. After much deliberation, I settled upon ...

Chop Saw Dust Hood #3: Outlet & Saw Swivel Clearance

11-30-2009 06:30 PM by BlankMan | 2 comments »

Well, I didn’t get to spend as much time over the 4 day Thanksgiving Holiday weekend as I wanted to working on this but I made some progress. I was actually hoping to have it done but not having the time and having to determine and make the template to do the cutout for the saw swivel clearance took a while. The cutout is not a continuous arc of the same radius because you need clearance for the guard here, the handle there and then the motor. And determining where to put the outlet was...

Buffalo Box #4: Beginning the intarsia

11-30-2009 04:33 PM by wdkits1 | 6 comments »

I will begin this stage of the intarsia process by resawing the wood that will become the background for the box lid. I am using Lacewood that will be bookmatched cut to 3/16” After the resawing is done I have cut the bookmatched pieces to length and have placed them on the workbench and belt sand them to remove saw marks. I like to set the pieces on a piece of 60 grit sandpaper to help hold them still while I sand them with the sander. Bookmatched pieces sanded to 220 gr...

After Thanksgiving

11-30-2009 02:13 PM by David Murray | 1 comment »

Well thanksgiving has come and gone and not a whole lot to show for my time off. I did however get maintenance done on my tools. Wife was out of town for a week visiting her parents in New york state, so I watched a little more college football than I should have. Between that and decorating the house and yard with Christmas decorations was all I felt like doing. I guess being a little lazy isn’t a bad thing, although I did help a friend out with some detail routing on a table he is mak...
