Marshmallow Catapult

04-15-2011 12:43 PM by Lockwatcher | 7 comments »

When I pulled this off of my cabinet, I did not expect so many would like to build these. Well, I took one apart so that we could make some notes – and then detail construction. Below: The marshmallow catapult in it’s finished form. As you can see below, the catapult concists of only 6 wooden parts & some miscellaneous hardware, all easy to build with handtools if need be. When we did this project with the scouts, we put it together as a kit that they could sand &#...

I have made a few more acquisitions of old iron for my shop, to the point that my wife thinks i’m nuts.I did my woodworking powerless for five years before I started getting machines, So I understand her wonderment on why I now have 4 bandsaws. I just love the way these machines were built to last for generations, and the striking comparison to how they are built today. (I also love a deal)So, here is some of what I got I know what your thinking, those are not Beavers, that&#...

Tool Mods #1: Ridgid Bandsaw Tire Replacement

04-12-2011 02:25 AM by AmandasHusband | 5 comments »

Having sold my tablesaw to my dad and not having 220 (for my new tablesaw) in my garage yet, I’m at a standstill. Project wise that is. So I figured this would be a good time to tinker around with my bandsaw. I bought it in late November and haven’t used it all that much. I have some mdf set aside to stiffen up the stand. And I replaced the belt a couple months ago. Took the old one into Advance and had the boy match it. That took quite a bit of shake out. Next up is t...

My experience with Hal Taylor at "Rocking Chair U"

04-11-2011 01:23 AM by Gator | 2 comments »

From the first time I saw a sculpted rocking chair, I loved the look, but never dreamed I would have the skill or patients to build one. The more I looked at the different chairs, the more I realized that there are a lot of rocking chair builders out there. The most frequent names that kept coming up were Sam Maloof, Hal Taylor, and Scott Morrison. The more I looked at the different designs, the more I was drawn to Hal Taylor’s chairs. Paul & Joel from Canadian...

Combo Drum Sander #3: Surface Sander, cabinet, specs, cost, observations

04-03-2011 09:55 PM by tyka | 7 comments »

This is the last of three parts detailing how I made the sander. Part 3 provides details for the surface sander attachment, photos of the final combo sander, specs, dimensions, comments, observations and a cost estimate. I found the sander too heavy to lug around and too high to use on my bench or assembly table. It’s now on a rolling cabinet made with ¾” plywood. The cabinet has two large drawers and storage in the back for the Surface Sanding Table, a place to hang a large push stick on ...

Lessons in barnboard

04-03-2011 08:48 AM by superstretch | 4 comments »

Today I had a unique experience that really got me doing something I’ve wanted to for a long time. Some background: So I have a ~150-180 year old outhouse that the previous owner moved off its old foundation and next to the pool, where it now serves as a filter/pump house. One side of the roof was cedar shingles and the other was metal sheeting (think refugee camp and you get the picture). During one of our windstorms, which the area is notorious for, the metal sheeting peeled back l...
