Stumbled across this interesting and informative little wooden mechanical marvel today and thought it would make a nice handwork practice piece for the coming Winter. Nights are long and Winter longer here in Scandinavia. The project is sourced from https://woodgears.ca/combolock/index.html and plans are available for purchse there. A reader made a wooden ‘safe’ to go along with the lock: https://woodgears.ca/combolock/ramsay.html View on YouTube
This is where I will collect the projects i find that interest me. I may or may not get to actually making them, but since I am starting from the beginning, I hope that, over time, this will grow into an interesting, educational, and useful collection of projects for the aspiring woodworker.
Hermit House Woodworking - Starting from Scratch #1: And So I Begin: Starting on the Road to Woodworking
Short Intro – For more info see my profile and workshop I’m almost 50 and I’ve never really learned how to make anything. I’m beginning for change that.I have just a few tools and no workshop. I need to bootstrap my way into one. I will be using Sketchup for most of my planning and design. The Plan for the rest of 2015 Buy the best sliding double bevel saw I can afford.Overview of the saw and workstand: Youtube playlist: https://goo.gl/kAAyGz Design...
Hell has officially thawed out (I think) so I’m back in the “shop”—a term I still, unfortunately, have to use in the loosest possible manner. So because I’m still working outdoors, and Wisconsin in winter is not conducive to outdoor work, I’ve spent most of my off-season studying, studying and reading. I managed to get a little play-time in just before the holidays; I braved the cold and set up a few tools to craft some toy boxes for the nephews. There ...
Here is the next installment in my restoration. This time through, I will go through cleaning up the parts and rust removal. I will talk about what chemicals I used and you will see how it all worked out. Part 3 will follow sometime soon. https://youtu.be/ZTz3dtE2ikQ
I just decided to take up wood working a little over a year ago due to health reasons. I could not continue with my past hobbies, so I decided to take up WW late in life. I know that I will never get the years of experience needed to accomplish what others do, but if I am having fun, so what? Fun is fun, at whatever level one is at. I work exclusively with pine or fir due to low cost and easy availability. I even use pocket hole screws, and pin nailers! My first project was a basic 5...
About 3 days after I got the parts for the cradle I broke out the plans…hoo boy….I may have bit off more than I can handle with this one. My shop is not equipped for larger projects. I have yet to get a band saw, table saw, router and router table, a planer. My shop is better equipped for smaller wood projects, pens, toys, puzzles, etc. So..following the plans I started with the two rockers. Have you SEEN U-Bild plans?!? OMG! What the heck did I get myself into?!? I tap...
As I wait for a friend to help me flip the table over, I get to the assembly of the legs. Note: If you don’t do a lot of squatting exercises, be prepared, you will be doing 24 reps for all the screws that go into the legs. Here are the legs assembled. All and All the legs go together real well, very little manipulation. Another note: if you want the leg protectors on the bottom of the legs (they are plastic), now is the time to put them on !! I opted not to use them and use rubber s...
Starting from complete scratch sounds like a daunting task as it will be full of mistakes. After much research, I decided on the Ridgid r4512 table saw to be my first. The first mistake I made was hurting my lower back getting this 268 pound monster in my VW hatchback. Once I got home, the question remained in my mind, “how am I going to get it out by myself?” Cut it out, thats what I did. After about an hour, it was out and my back was sore, but I was determined. The ta...
A ready-made kit for the Derby Racing. No major work required here, so it may be a good beginner project. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9ZQq2AA8cg
