The Ultimate Vice Jaws

01-07-2017 10:46 PM by ShaunMeighan | 4 comments »

Hi all! I’ve recently made myself a set of jaws for my engineering vice to make it more usable for woodworking. These jaws increase the surface area contacting the workpiece and adds pieces of leather for extra grip. I’m very happy with how they turned out and would love to know what you think of them!

Another bit done on the coffee table. Well, actually it is done and in use, but in the time line of the build, here we go getting those feet looking a bit nicer. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #68: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 6

12-13-2016 09:40 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

In this segment I get the stretchers made and joined to the legs of the coffee table. I am still not accustomed to the new saws and will have to put more effort into my form. Never the less, the half lap dovetails come out OK. Except for one little repair that had to be made along the way. There will be more mistakes in upcoming videos, but they all get dealt with. As I was editing this I noticed I went from shorts and a T shirt to long pants and a pull over. The change in seasons is st...

Shop stuff #66: 2003 MIM Fender Stratocaster

12-03-2016 01:18 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I have quite the back log of footage. So I figure I will keep mixing it up and putting out different themed videos instead of concentrating on just the coffee table build (where I am sitting right now writing this). I have done a couple of guitars for this guy, so he must be OK with my work. This 2003 Strat was one he bought on Kijiji and sent it over to me to get it working the way he likes them. A bit of wiring, lots of cleaning, and a bunch of adjustments later and the guitar is just a...

Shop stuff #65: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 5

11-28-2016 01:19 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Yes, it is a long series, and going to get longer…..lol. In this one we get the feet roughed out and some actual joinery done, mortising the feet and legs together. I get some new saws too. After I see myself working with them I realise I have to improve my body mechanics and form. But I am having fun, and to me, that is the whole point. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #63: Coffee table Pt 4

11-14-2016 07:45 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, a coffee table needs legs right? In this one I make up the slabs for the legs of the coffee table. Lots of cutting and milling and work with the hand plane. In the end I have 2 nice blanks to be used for the legs of the table. I experimented with a new intro and outro and getting some different angles on some shots. I also kept it under 20 minutes. Makes more episodes I suppose. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #62: Part 3 of the Coffee Table build

11-09-2016 04:43 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Continuing on, I get the top ready for glue up and get it put together. Some preliminary work on flattening it and getting it cut to size and shape. By the end the top is pretty close to being done as far as working the wood. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #61: Coffee table pt. 2

11-02-2016 03:23 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

After lots of editing and cutting and experimenting with my editing software, I finally got part 2 done. Here I am getting the top roughed out some more and slowly bringing it into what I want. Hours and hours of work over several days. It does not seem like it when you watch a video. I have to point out that my power tools are not particularly quiet, I pull the volume back on those sections. I watch a lot of You Tube videos, and edit mine, using headphones, and getting your ears blasted...

Shop stuff #60: Starting on the coffee table

10-23-2016 02:40 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

Now that I have made the track for the circular saw, and got the planer tuned up, I can actually start building the coffee table that I promised my wife for her birthday back in January. I am taking a bit of a different tack on this series of videos by making them shorter. I think that will make viewing them easier. Most of my build videos I have made longer because I thought I would lose continuity but I think they may be a bit long for viewing. This series I am going to try to keep each...

Hand tools #2: Stanley No. 116 Mitre Box rehab-first in-depth job

10-17-2016 08:38 AM by CFrye | 25 comments »

I picked up this little mitre box at a flea market back in August for $6. It came with a Warranted Superior backsaw with a bent back/plate and possibly a replacement handle? That’s another story. Out of all the tools that I have brought home to ‘save’ I’m not sure why this one jumped to the front of the rehab line. Maybe because it didn’t need sharpened. And I was pretty sure I wouldn’t be de-valuing it with refinishing (yeah, I watched a lot of Antiqu...
