Knob made using Oak Screw Chuck

01-31-2012 10:26 PM by unisaw2 | 1 comment »

Work is quiet right now, no remodel jobs at the moment. I am learning how to turn knobs with an Oak screw chuck. 3” diameter face plate with 1-1/4” thick piece of white oak attached with 3 sheet metal screws. In the center is a 2-1/2” #10 wood screw, washer, and lock washer to make the screw chuck.... . Attaching 1-3/8” maple square blank to screw chuck. Keeping the blank tight without snaping the steel #10 screw is a challenge....Roughing blank to cylinder. ....Turning curves with spin...

01-31-2012 06:20 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 2 comments »

Well if you have made it this far, why not go a little further and watch the conclusion of this chest. It has been a fun build so far for me. I hope it has been informative and somewhat enjoyable for you to watch as well. Now I know the video quality isnt the best. but As I go on it has gotten better….Now in this present day I have a new camera, lighting and it has helped a lot. Here are the final 3 videos of this chest build. Parts 6, 7, 8 Part 8 was pretty basic, the installation ...

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/182951744/to-the-root-of-things-glowing-pine-root-sculpture I’m hoping to turn these huge hulking remains of trees into some awesome stuff. I will try to keep this blog updated, especially if I get funded and get to launch my project. I really love working with non-traditional materials.

Smokeless Motor

Couple of weeks ago I told you that I’d lost all the smoke in the motor for my bandsaw.After I got the new motor installed I took the old one apart.Here’s what it looked like - The motor did not have a thermal overload so it fried the information plaque.I think the squiggles are some smoke that never made it.

New Mallet Project

01-22-2012 03:32 AM by LelandStone | 2 comments »

Okay, so…I’ve bought a gouge on eBay, and I’m making some others, and it occurred to me: I don’t have a decent mallet. In fact, I’ve NEVER had one, and making one has been on my “tuit” list for far too long. Soooo…downstairs in the shop today I made some headway. The blank I’d glued up from 6/4 hard maple stock, then cut and mounted in my lathe (second favourite tool in my shop, thank you): That done, I then bored the mallet hea...

Building the shop #8: The wall is up!!!

01-16-2012 07:40 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 5 comments »

Saturday… 0630… In the car heading to Lowe’s for the last few items needed to make the piece of my garage a real shop. Kind of like Pinocchio wanting to be a real boy – my 1/3 of the 3-car garage WANTS to be a woodshop, and I am the maker, Geppetto, who has been carefully, slowly (too slow) making that piece of the garage into a shop. Rich, my neighbor across the street, and, a “sheetrock guy” by trade, has offered to help my little piece of heaven becom...

Tool Mods #2: Ridgid Bandsaw Stabilization Complete

01-15-2012 03:25 PM by AmandasHusband | 6 comments »

I’ve been working on this bandsaw for quite a while now. Early last year I replaced the belt and changed the tires and put a mobile base under her. Then, back over the summer, I bought some lead tape and balanced the wheels. I also replaced the stock blade with a 1/4” Olson one. The guy at Woodcraft talked me out of the Timberwolf. Why, I’ll never know. This thing barely cuts better than the stock blade. Anyway, back in the fall, as this thing is still vibrating too...
