Saw Making #3: Gents Saw Conversion Part 2

06-23-2016 11:05 PM by AgentTwitch | 3 comments »

Part two of the Gents Saw Conversion series. This may be a bit verbose, so I apologize ahead of time. After all, we are just drilling holes… The next step in the conversion process is drilling holes. A lot of holes. You will need a variety of forstner and twist drill bits to complete these steps. With your template affixed to your stock, use an awl to create reference points on all of the indicated locations, or use the spur on the forstner to create a divot. Apply moderate pr...

Naval cannon carriage project

06-23-2016 10:25 PM by yorktowncarpenter | 6 comments »

I’ve received an exciting project recently that I will update as it gets completed. The cannon was made in 1844 by Daniel Treadwell, and is property of the US Navy and will be place in front of the Marine HQ building on base here at the Yorktown Naval Weapons Station. My job will be to prep and paint the cannon and build a carriage for it to sit on. The carriage needs to match the company emblem so it won’t be historically correct. With that said my wood choices are unlimited. ...

Summer Uke Build #2: Bending the Sides

06-23-2016 10:14 PM by onoitsmatt | 2 comments »

I took the advice of Bob from his comment on my previous post and soaked the sides overnight. They were still too stiff to bend without tearing out and they did, in fact, tear out some more. So I smashed them between a couple of pieces of flat shelving I had laying around and let them dry that way overnight to get them flat so I could plane them a bit thinner. The next day I did plane them thinner and sanded and tried to get as much of the tear-out planed/sanded out to hopefully restore ...

Cedar Driveway Gate #8: Tenons and Some Details

06-23-2016 05:15 AM by WoodHoarder | 5 comments »

Last time was the mortises and now the tenons. I had a pretty rough time getting these cut. The biggest issue was getting the shoulders straight all the way around. The first technique was with a router and a jig. For the flat. For the edge. Having never worked with such large joints, this turned out to be incredibly tedious and I couldn’t get the shoulders to line up. I tried table saw, hand saw…. wasn’t working. So, needed a new tool. Enter Stan...

A journey into the workshop. #105: I found my hole saws! More shop cleanup.

06-22-2016 02:22 PM by dbhost | 9 comments »

Okay so here’s the deal. I’ve been looking for my hole saws pretty much everywhere, for the better part of 2 weeks. I am building a custom light for photography / videography, and I need to bore some holes for light sockets. So I’ve been tearing through the shop, under workbenches, behind the lathe, in the toolbox drawers, in totes, on top of cabinets, in cabinets, you name it, I’ve looked, with one exception, but those drawers aren’t done yet, how can they be...

Greene & Greene Magazine Rack - my "own" design #8: Doing the finish on the case and shelves, case assembly

06-22-2016 03:22 AM by Mike_D_S | 8 comments »

So I got busy, but have been doing some work in bits and pieces. The first thing was normally I assemble and then stain, but with all the small ledges and the inset panels on the side, I decided to do some of the finish work first and then assemble. I stained all the pieces and put on two coats of wipe on poly on the inset panels. This way, if the panels shift a little at some point, there won’t be any unstained wood peaking out. I also did a dry fit prior to putting on the dye st...
