Look at that! #1: There is an empty spot just to the right of my Craftsman contractor's saw.

Good thing I won the ebay auction for this Delta Bandsaw. I won’t be able to pick it up until next Saturday. I won’t be able to work on it until I’m not with the Unisaw, but at least I know what my next project is going to be. Bothus

Baby Cradle #1: First project

1758 days ago by Bob Giovannini | 8 comments »

My first project is a baby cradle. We are expecting our first in April, so should be plenty of time. Though who knew it took so long to get those edges square! I am taking an introductory wood working class, so thankfully each time I have no idea how to proceed, the instructor is there with some tips and guidance. It started with a board… Squared (oof – who knew that would take so long!) Cut to length..Glued…Planed to proper depth. Rockers cut with bandsaw ...

Boat building #1: In need of spiritual applicant with free plans

1769 days ago by threehands | 2 comments »

Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...

Spring cleaning in Fall still no fun !!!!!!!!

1775 days ago by Built2Last | 2 comments »

A couple of days ago I decided it was time to build a rack to organize my nuts, bolts, screws, washers and other fasteners. I don’t know how I got so many but man, they are everywhere. As I sort thru them I am listing them and anything else I either don’t need, use or have more than one of on ebay. So far I’ve listed over 75 items I think and still have more to go. A couple of items are either rare or expensive like a Starrett calibrated master square set (http://cgi.ebay.co...

Drunken Cutting Boards #2: Smooth Flowing Drunken Checker board

1775 days ago by poroskywood | 15 comments »

So having read part #1 I’ll complete the second variation of the Drunken checker board pattern. The process is basically the same except for one critical part and is as follows. Start again by taping two blanks together. This time In stead of making opposing S cuts I’ll follow the S pattern with each cut. (I get a little sloppy, but it works out OK). Follow the Part #1 procedure. CRITICAL PART! This step creates the difference between the pattern in part one ...

Desk rebuild #5: Drawer construction

1782 days ago by Ben | 0 comments »

So I overcame the router issue with a new router. I bought a Triton 2 1/4 HP model. It seems to work OK so far, although all of the accessories are different than the Porter Cable versions, so I am slowly building up what I have for it. Some of the attachments are a bit awkward—the plate to support bushings didn’t line up quite right with the bottom of the router, and the hose connection requires a threaded 1 1/2 hose. Fortunately, I could work around both these issues. On ...

Solar Kiln #1: Solar Kiln

1782 days ago by HalDougherty | 14 comments »

I’ve started on my new solar kiln. The plans are from Virginia Tech’s solar kiln project. I’m using the modified plans for a 2000 bft kiln. The framing is 2X4 white pine, floors are made from 1” white oak, the outside siding is 1” white pine with 1” poplar over the pine. After the insulation is installed the inside will be covered with plywood. The supports are made from log sections of black locust. I’ll have more photos when it’s f...
