6 point jewish star - work in progress

1304 days ago by davecohn | 3 comments »

I saw the five pointed star posted a few days ago and wanted to post a picture of a Jewish star that I am working on. I need to sand and finish it. It was a challenge to get the angles right. If you rotate it, it looks really neat. More pics in a few days when it is finished.

DragonFly Harp #6: 1/12/2011

1317 days ago by Donna Menke | 10 comments »

Doesn’t seem like 6 days have passed, but the calendar does not lie. I have a lot to catch up with.First order of the day was to edge join the pieces I would need to have wider- like for parts of the stand legs and the base of the harp.These Bessey clamps are the best.Then I needed to cut the angled sides.

1845 days ago by dustbunny | 7 comments »

I was looking for a clamp that could hold a glue up of two 45 deg strips of wood to make a block. Basically two triangles glued together to make a square. All the woodworking site searches produced nothing. Then I came across these clamps on a welding website. http://www.stronghandtools.com/products/pdt_img/pgv_pic.html I ordered three of them from my local welding supply store to see how they would work. The man at the supply store had never seen them, apparently they have a patent...

Military Shadow Box construction

1966 days ago by jez | 16 comments »

Have begun construction on a shadow box for my retirement. First step – think out all the angles, grooves, dados, joints etc. and put the concept to paper. Scale helps to figure out exactly what the angles are and can help to see what might and might not work. As with any plan, once the actual work begins, the plan will often change to be either more doable or possible. Decided to build a shadow box for a 5’ x 8’ US flag in a doghouse pattern.
