Combo Drum Sander #1: Concept and making the drum

02-20-2011 06:48 AM by tyka | 11 comments »

This is my first blog and I hope it will go over well. This sander was inspired by models on the Internet but mostly by Blake: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/7641 and by Bob: http://lumberjocks.com/Bob3418/blog. I would like to thank them both for their posts. Without them this project would have been very difficult to complete. Concept: My intentions are to make a 20” +/- wide drum sander that will easily switch from thickness to surface sanding. I would like to be able to reduce stoc...

Ancient Bucket Master Class with Stefang #4: Tools complete

02-19-2011 09:55 AM by daltxguy | 6 comments »

Finally back to the shop to finish off the final bits of the plane. I am following Mike's ( stefang) master class on a medieval bucket If you recall, the plane is being created in order to plane the inside of the staves to the curvature of the bucket. As well we need a ‘binding lever’ which will be used to install the willow band around the bucket once completed. Ive chose to pass on the lagging knife. There appear to be other methods available. i might regret this but f...

My workshop machinery, tools & accessories

02-14-2011 11:48 PM by steliart | 18 comments »

Since I cannot at this moment show my workshop as I am in search of a space, even though I have bought the machines and still in boxes. What I can do is to show the photos of my machines, some of the tools & accessories, don’t have photos for everything. <div></div>

Cigar pen from Courthouse

02-14-2011 02:22 AM by Bill Akins | 1 comment »

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Z8vDvSHjVA&feature=youtube_gdataMy hometown of Blairsville Georgia has one of those old courthouses located in the center of the town. I remember cruising around it on weekends in my 65 Mustang convertable. A comittee has restored the old building in the last several years and it is now a museum. They had to cut down a bartlett pear tree that had grown too close. My father, who is on the committee, acquired a few logs from the tree. I will later make a...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #8: Day 2 went well!

Hello Again, Well after a rough day at work I was really looking forward to today’s course…then I had to go back to work! But its okay I still made it to class early! I’m 2 for 2! Today Ryan demonstrated the bandsaw, disk and spindle sanders. Pretty cool, a huge bandsaw. I will have to measure it’s resaw capacity as it looked about 12 or 13 inches but very deep from the blade to the arm and a huge table. After the demo’s we picked our projects and began ...

Craftsman 12" Bandsaw Rebuild Part 1(Taking it all apart)

02-10-2011 09:55 PM by Brian024 | 17 comments »

Here is a current non woodworking project I’m working on, it rebuilding/restoring a 12” Craftsman bandsaw. The number printed on the body of the saw is 103.24280, which I’ve researched and found that it was manufactured between 1930 to 1950. It was given to me for free from my grandpa who works part time at a small airport which recently changed ownership. Many of the machinery in the shop was upgraded and much of what was not kept was thrown out, luckily my grandpa caugh...

Beaver rehab #1: Rescuing some old beavers

02-07-2011 09:13 PM by JuniorJoiner | 10 comments »

It all started with a drill press, I needed one, and was on the hunt. I quickly found that most new drill presses are lacking a feature I find very useful, a locking spindle. The machine I trained on had one, and I used it every time, So I wanted that feature.After a few days, I found an old machine that had the feature, it was a Canadian made beaver drill. I didn’t have the cash right then, but I have some friends that were on the hunt as well, I phoned them, and they scooped it up. So...

Circle Cutting Jig ( for the bandsaw) #3: Recent modifications

02-06-2011 09:50 PM by BritBoxmaker | 5 comments »

One obvious failing on the jig was pointed out by Trevor (tdv) in that with the sliding table away from the right hand side of the blade the workpiece is unsupported on this side and could suffer chipout. Good point so Version 2.1 -TDV modification--A small piece of beech is fixed to the jaw of the left fixed table to act as a sacrificial zero clearance jaw. The corresponding cutout is made in the sliding table jaw to accommodate this and allow the jaw to still close up.As its screwed into...
