THE WELL BACK:Trying to “Steam Bend” the tool well back straight. Notice the dowle I used to get the clamp as far out of the way as possible. Hit it with the heat gun Got it straight enough to joint one side and run through the planner without losing too much thickness This...

Bunk Bed Build #5: Panels, Long Rails, and Mounting Brackets

391 days ago by Mauricio | 26 comments »

Hello again folks. Here is the update on my project. I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking. I experiment with new circ saw method. I just scored the first line and then eyeballed the second utility knife cut to the thickness of the blade. Then followed the line free hand. Works Great! Very little tear out. Those of you who follow the Workbench thread already know that I cut into my bench doing this. :-( So, I won’t rehash that here. Fixing that will have to be a separa...

004: cheap, rolling lathe stand #5: dust hood mount solution

1628 days ago by Gary Fixler | 20 comments »

This one’s been in the works for awhile, and by that I mean I’ve pondered it in my head for a few minutes here and there over the last several months. I’ve had the general idea most of that time, but this week I pondered even harder than ever and imagined all of the pieces. I just wanted something simple that could hold one of the two dust hoods I’ve ended up with from Rockler, but I wanted to be able to tilt it forward over the piece, or backward out of the way, an...

Bunk Bed Build #7: Panel Prep and Glue Up

362 days ago by Mauricio | 19 comments »

Hello again friends and thanks for following. In this installment I prep each of the panels (Head bard and Food Board) for glue up. I’ve done a lot of work since my last blog but progress has been a little slow. Before I glued up the panels I tested my dye/poly finish to make sure that pine and birch ply would look ok together. And it looks ok to me. Gives me that splotchy pine look my wife likes so much. ;-) Then on to prep the panels for glue up. This consisted of planing an ...

DJ wants “overflow” storage for her bathroom stuff and towels. And as y’all know … what DJ (or whoever YOUR equivalent is) wants … DJ gets. Time to buy some plans !! No. Wait. Not THIS time.

Bunk Bed Build #9: The Finale: Railings, Ladder and Stacking

241 days ago by Mauricio | 15 comments »

Hello again folks, this blog aint done yet, I still have to finish the railings and ladders and make this thing a bunk bed. I started a new job recently so I’ve been very busy, as a result, shop time has been limited and my picture taking has been lax. But I’ve got enough below to give you an idea of the process. Nothing too ground breaking here and no galoot points when it comes to mortising. Jointing one face and one edge so I can feed them through the thickness planer ...

DIY Lathe #1: Introduction

2285 days ago by Marcel T | 9 comments »

Hello fellow Lumber Jocks! I’m starting a little blog series on my work-in-progress DIY lathe. In short, I want to build a lathe to turn a few pens, without spending ~$60 some on specifically pen turning materials and ~$200 on a lathe. So, I want to try turning. I’ve always considered myself a handyman-esque person, and I had that urge to build! The tipping point was when I found a few blogs such as AfriGadget, StreetUse and Future Perfect. Their owners travel a lot, and they notice ingenu...
