Shop stuff #134: The OTHER saw bench.

08-17-2018 07:11 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

I got a question on my second saw bench. The first one I built was the one from Billy’s Little Bench and I have used it on just about every project I have done after that. I have used it for other things too. The second one I built is of my own design to help out with some of my physical short comings. That, and it is always nice to have a second one for working long stock. Some folks just use some sort of prop at the other end of long stock, but this one serves in other areas too....

Shop stuff #133: Roubo build part 5

08-15-2018 11:27 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Reaching and recognising my skill limitations with hand tools, I resort to the tried and true. You have to know how to pick your battles sometimes. I thought I was beat, turns out I just needed a break to rethink the situation. Not everything turns out as hoped, but success is where you take it. View on YouTube

Building a booKshelf with an Art Deco Pattern Carved in The Side

08-05-2018 07:29 PM by BenhamDesign | 0 comments »

This build was for a client earlier this year. She had this pattern on some wallpaper and loved it so we incorporated the pattern into the bookshelf sides and carved it out with a V bit If you are interested in its creation feel free to watch the video Project Recap Once I got the design approved by the client a made a print to scale pattern and used a little spray adhesive to attach it to a piece of plywood so I could turn it into a template.I didn’t fuss around with trying to...

Shop Notes #21: Single Task Table Saw Sled

08-03-2018 11:32 PM by Steve | 1 comment »

I’ve built quite a few different table saw sleds over the years but been happy with only a few of them. At the moment, the one I use most is a large version based on one I saw in a magazine recently. It came out pretty square and has T-slots for hold downs, which can be handy at times. For precise work, though, I found it to be a bit cumbersome. I cut a lot of quarter inch tenons from 1” x 1/2” stock for my jewelry cabinet doors. There are two doors per cabinet, so 8 join...

Shop stuff #132: Roubo build Part 4

08-02-2018 11:30 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

Finally! The slabs come together as one unit. My first try at a draw bore loose tenon joint. It was an interesting experience with a lot of groaning from the tight fitting tenons. I could not tell this part of the story in 8 to 12 minutes. It had to go just over a half hour, but I think the story is worth telling. View on YouTube

Building A Cuttaway Acoustic Guitar #2: Part 2: Gluing the Sides

08-01-2018 01:54 AM by DMiller | 7 comments »

First off I would like to apologize for not having updated you all earlier on my acoustic guitar project. This summer has been really busy for me as I have been working full time and have not had a lot of time to work on the guitar. Hopefully once school starts I will have a little more time in the afternoon. Here are a few pictures of the instrument at the stage it is at: As I have glued the three pieces of the sides I have kept them in a form to keep the sides from trying to...

Shop stuff #131: Roubo build part 3

07-25-2018 10:35 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Facing the consequences of inexperience with working with slabs this big and a bit of carelessness I carry on and get the slabs ready to join them edge to edge. I decided by the end of it that since I have no real “plan” other than a picture in my head I will push on through and fix things a bit later. Long hot work but they finally get to the point where I can start joining the slabs in the next video. View on YouTube

Keeps breaking belts

07-22-2018 09:06 PM by geppetto | 7 comments »

I have a 352VS Porter Cable belt sander that keeps breaking belts at the seam. I believe I’m using quality belts (Gator) but they keep breaking with very little use. Any suggestions on cause?
