Wedding Clock #8: Tapers & Out of the Shop

05-28-2011 02:34 AM by kenn | 3 comments »

This feels like real progress! By the end of this blog, you’ll be able to see that this clock is actually coming together. When I stopped last time, I was waiting for the BLO to dry on the front frame. It dried. Now I need to apply shellac. I decided on clear to let the cherry darken and age on it own. Maybe on their 50th wedding anniversary the couple will pull out some old pictures and see how the tone has mellowed, just like them. Here’s a shot of the shellac being appli...

Lowering a cabinet saw for use by the disabled in a wheelchair....Part 3

05-25-2011 02:30 AM by lilredweldingrod | 25 comments »

Now that the table saw is lowered, more toys need to be lowered to be useful in the shop. So now I’m trying to come to grips with the loss of the outfeed table and the need to relocate other tools for combinations of uses.Today I lowered the shaper 5 inches and trimmed it to be 5/16” lower than the table saw and the same with the band saw. The idea is that I can have them close by for use or the be the outfeed table, What do you think?Everything is on Shop Fox mobile bases the sam...

Wedding Clock #6: DISASTER STRIKES!

05-24-2011 12:19 AM by kenn | 6 comments »

I was making great progress on the clock. The wedding is 17 weeks away. My wife commented that she thought it would be done in time today. I headed done to my shop. I’ve been working on the front frame and thought I might be gluing it up today. Here’s a look at the lower rail, nice tight joint. I needed to put the profile on the bottom of that rail. As you may remember from my last post, I am using a huge fortsner bit to establish the curve and then bandsawing out the waste...

"Crazy Generous" Gifts for the Workshop

05-23-2011 02:28 AM by robbinscabin | 4 comments »

Have you ever walked away from your Workshop after a project without doing the proper cleanup? Here’s why that’s a really bad idea! We had spent so much time building the log bed that we just didn’t bother to clean up. And after nearly a week of avoiding the basement entirely I was starting to feel pretty guilty…one day I even took my project out to the front yard to “work in the sunshine.” In reality I was avoiding the mess! But I wasn’t the o...

Cummins Mack Bandsaw Cleaning and Tune Up #2: Disassembly and Discovery

05-21-2011 04:28 PM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

I’ve been extremely busy since my last blog entry and have not had much time to work on the band saw much. I was only able to work on it for a few hours here and there. So far I’ve been able to disassemble the machine down to its frame. Here are a few pictures. As you can see the tires will definately have to be replaced, the table will need to be cleaned up, and I’ll need to replace the thrust bearings. The tires, I suspect, will be the bulk of th...

The Maloof Library Series #8: Something for all of you iPad enthusiasts...

05-19-2011 12:28 AM by ScottMorrison | 3 comments »

Hi everyone. My extremely talented wife just wrote a groundbreaking new APP for the iPad. It’s the first of it’s kind for woodworkers, enabling you to play with a 3D rocking chair (and all of the separate parts) right on the iPad. You can order parts, take notes and do lots of other cool stuff including watching come never-before-seen videos right within the APP. I admit it, I am a gadget guy, and this is so much fun to play with it makes it hard to go back to making sawdu...

Well, I am started down the road now to creating a rocking horse for my granddaughter, Emma.She will be two years old this Christmas, and has now just begun to walk. So I figure, if I start it now,I’ll finish in time for this Christmas… This horse is being created loosely from the Woodsmith Rocking Horse, issue #65, with a little creative flair this time around. I last built one of these some 16 years ago, for my oldest granddaughter, who is going to graduate from high school next...

The Maloof Library Series #7: Not for the timid...Maloof inspired Music Stand

05-12-2011 05:58 AM by ScottMorrison | 6 comments »

A while back, I posted some pictures of the most difficult project I had ever attempted…the Maloof Music Stand. Much to my surprise, quite a few woodworkers have expressed an interest in tackling this thing, so I have finally put together templates and a detailed instruction booklet for anyone who thinks they’re up for the challenge. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. ;) You can have a look Here Enjoy! Scott Morrisonhttp://www.finewoodworker.com
