MAKING A TALL STAVE CONTAINER #2: Making the Dados for the Bottom

05-23-2016 12:41 PM by stefang | 16 comments »

StrugglingMy apologies for being so late with this follow-up to the first blog in this series. I had to do a lot of work to get our garden into shape for the spring/summer season and it went pretty slow for me this year as I am getting old and decrepit. RecapYou might recall that I had finished coving the staves for this container on my table saw. This is only going to be a utilitarian item which will serve as a moveable 2nd leg a for wall hinged work bench and I only did the coving for m...

I had a good day with the table top all progressed wellI removed the clamps with mixed feelings however all was well.That was refreshing so I decided to sand the paper off and have a good look at it There were a few gaps and holes that I will need to fill other wise I was very happy with the result The next step was to add the secondary edging, for this I had a piece of oak which was cupped beyond use in its present form so i decided to cut it up.It also had has a bit of twist a...

Greene & Greene Magazine Rack - my "own" design #3: Adding joinery to the Sketchup model

05-23-2016 03:47 AM by Mike_D_S | 4 comments »

For design purposes where I often draw components and then remove them, I usually take the easy route and draw things as overlays rather than as a real part. But at some point you have to actually build something and that takes some type of joinery. I’m still an amateur, but I’m slowly learning. Doing the joinery in sketchup helps me see how things could fit together. So here is an example of how I do it (which I’m certain is not the easiest way). When I start...

Toy costruction #55: Last day of the 32 Lincoln Kb

05-22-2016 10:08 PM by htl | 23 comments »

I got this plan from Grizzy for $4 on sale and I must say it was a blast to build this car and that’s not even talking about the wheels I made.All the different angles to play with on the fenders and all, makes it turn out just right and looks really nice once built.I know all the votes were for the tanker truck but I’m really glad I waited so now I have a better idea of what is needed to really soup the truck up I think.They sell a fancier version of the truck at T&J that I w...

SawStop Assembly #8: My Adapted Solution for Overhead Dust Collection

05-22-2016 08:07 PM by HappyHowie | 2 comments »

I found bonesbr549’s post on his solution to optimize the overhead dust collection on his SawStop. I was going to attempt to apply his solution to my new SawStop. I went to my local Woodcraft store today in hopes I could find all the dust connector devices I would require. I got lucky. I can put all the parts together, but I will add a rubber connector for my SawStop 4” port. I will connect the 90 degree angle bend part shown below with that 4” rubber connector. The p...

Working with recycled timber #56: Flooring table top glueing the modules together and attaching the frame

05-22-2016 08:45 AM by robscastle | 2 comments »

I aligned the four modules on one of the long sides and and used wooden wedges fixed to the worktop to clamp everything together using Titebond III glue.How I did it, I laid paper where the modules join to prevent anything sticking to the mealmine and glued everything on the Tongue and Grooves and fitted them together face down on the workbench. I didnt take any photos as I was a bit nervous about getting everything square and forgot anout them.I left the top overnight to allow the glue to...
