Just for Fun... #72: Sometimes, the ideas just fall from the Sky...

455 days ago by littlecope | 23 comments »

The Roof on our Apartment building sustained a little damage this past Winter. After the snow melted, I found the remains of two Slate shingles, out of the hundreds that are up there… The one in the front didn’t survive the fall, but the one in the back put me of a mind to make something, if I can only square it up a little…Back in my landscaping days, in the late “70’s, we cut tons of Granite for Walkways and Stairs. It’s a lot of work, but relatively e...

CLAMP FOR MY BIESMEYER FENCE UNDER CONSTRUCTION

849 days ago by Metrotek | 1 comment »

Greetings to all once again; I am attaching photos of the clamp for my new Biesmeyer style fence that is under construction. It came out fairly well.The circular pads are adjustable by carriage bolts threaded in to t-nuts to correct any undesired angularity.

The two piece pad that the dowel pushes will have an elastomer sandwiched between the pieces to provide a spring action so the cam can over clamp it...

Finally, My Dream Shop #9: ProjectCalc Plus

2440 days ago by Calgirl | 5 comments »

This may be old news to most of you, but I purchased a woodworking calculator that is amazing, at least to me. I am one of those mathmatically challenged woodworkers, and this calculator does everything but build the project. I calculates board feet, meters from feet & inches, how much paint to buy, how many rolls of wallpaper you need, how many boards and posts you need for a fence, etc., etc. Now I will have no more excuses for that cut that is too short! I have used it already to ...

Wood Movement Calculator

2467 days ago by Karson | 3 comments »

There has been a lot of discussion on this site and probably others about wood movement. How much does wood move What about quartersawn lumber Does flat sawn lumber move more than Quarter Sawn The US Government has created a Wood Handbook that has lots of tables but how does that become useful? I took the tables and created an Excel Spreadsheet to calculate the wood movement. But, I came across a wood Movement Calculator that you can download and run on your computer. This pro...
