07-27-2007 05:50 AM by woodboxman | 4 comments »

...meanwhille, back at the lathe…. I’ve refined the prototype!I’m starting to like this one. Now i just gotta be able to make a good cross for the top. It’s pretty small. I downsized the pieces a little, the king is a little over 3 inches tall. I’m starting to get excited about this project..more to come

Shop Cam Experiment - Lathe Cam

07-27-2007 05:21 AM by mot | 13 comments »

Hey Folks, I’m just screwing around with technology. I’ve just spent a little time setting up the “Lathe Cam.” I’m not sure it will see any action tonight, but it was fun to setup! I'm going to try and setup a more permanent shop cam for a couple of reasons. I'm in the shop late at night while my wife is doing her paperwork. I've had a couple of accidents in the shop. Just minor, but I have come up the stairs bleeding with my hand wrapped in shop tow...

Woodworking Gadgets

07-26-2007 10:59 PM by GaryK | 10 comments »

We have all seen new gadgets advertised. How many of them really work? How many are really worth the trouble? How many really get used? I invite everyone to tell us about your favorite gadget or two, and how much you really use them. I’ll start by showing two of my favorites. Both are shown in the picture below. 1. The first are the “Board Buddies”. They work great t...

Artistic Woodturnings #2: "Jorell" Spalted Water Oak Hollow Form

07-26-2007 10:48 PM by SteveRussell | 6 comments »

Here is another piece I did in Spalted Water Oak titled “Jorell.” I rarely turn Oak of any kind, but this log was too nice to pass up. Termites did a number on this log before I got to it, evidenced by the holes in the front of the form. This piece measures approximately 10” tall and 8” wide at the widest point. It was hollowed with a Stewart System Armbrace using traditional “Blind Hollowing” techniques (no laser guided, or torque arrested systems). The wa...

A Workbench's Progress #11: The End's in Sight!

07-26-2007 05:16 PM by TheGravedigger | 9 comments »

Hooray! The final glue-up of all the pieces is finished, and boy am I tired! The last post left me sharpening my chisel and getting ready to square up the 28 mortises. This was indeed as difficult as I feared. It’s not that squaring a mortise is that hard, but there were so many of them. This was the time to remember the old adage that a mountain is climbed one step at a time. Each mortise was just one mortise, and that’s how I approached the problem. The problem with SYP...

Arts and Crafts Style Pool Table - Video Series #5: Corbels for the leg system

07-26-2007 01:47 PM by John Nixon | 5 comments »

A couple of weeks ago I Blogged for help here at LumberJocks (Link Here) with what size / shape /scale to make the corbels for the Pool Table. It was a great discussion and also a nice collaborative process with all who participated. There’s a great group of woodworkers from all skill levels here, and it was nice to hear to various viewpoints. The corbels are finished, and I think they came out great. The next installment in the video series covers the design and construction of t...

Summer Challenge 2007 - A Bridge Too Short #2: Resawing Cedar

07-26-2007 04:54 AM by Bob Babcock | 9 comments »

I finally got started on cutting the planks for the bridge. I hope I can get this done in time to submit as my entry. I may have to submit some previous projects if I don’t get finished this weekend. I bought my son-in-law this Dewalt contractors saw last weekend as a gift for helping me install all new windows in the house. I like it so much I’m going to put one on my birthday/christmas/fathers day gift list ( all tools on that list as you can imagine) Very light, powerful, ni...

Powermatic PM 2000 #1: Finally... a new table saw!!

07-26-2007 04:39 AM by Calvin Sphuler | 6 comments »

Well, I must say, it has been a long time in the coming but my time has finally arrived! I just got the go ahead from my lovely and kind wife Hillary to make that one purchase every aspiring woodworker dreams of. In my case, I have been dreaming of this day since the moment I walked out of highschool woodshop for good… the day I would purchase the table saw of my dreams. After I got the go-shead, I started doing quite a bit of research and found a lot of good saws. I knew that I w...
