Project to learn woodturning. #1: My Chess Set

02-25-2016 03:13 PM by JWags | 0 comments »

My son asked me to make him a chess set. I used his request as a long awaited excuse to buy a lathe and learn to turn wood. This chess set was my first experiment. There are 7 videos so far in the series.

It’s a Harvey W. Peace Brooklyn New York with the 1887 Patent Date! It’s in pretty good shape too! And if you guys read my stupid blog you know I am a...

Today's Buys 20FEB16

02-21-2016 01:47 AM by Dex378 | 2 comments »

So today I had an hour to kill so I went up to my newest favorite store in XXXXwood, MA. It’s a junk store pretty much, they buy out estates and sell off the house contents, pretty damn cheaply I might add. Anyway, as a lover of all that is junk and all that is tools I picked my way through and found some decent stuff at a spectacular price! So I picked up a 25’ extension cord, a Stanley framing square (even though I probably have 6 of them at $0.50 cents I just had to have it...

Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.

Klein Solid Body Electric Travel Guitar #1: Planning and Roughing

08-30-2015 05:34 PM by Dave G | 2 comments »

My son is an accomplished jazz guitarist, having minored in music, playing every day several hours for 10+ years, and doing occasional jigs in NYC where he lives. I promised a hand-made personalized guitar for his graduation present. Now I’m going to make for him a Klein copy travel guitar. I found some plans online here by Eric Olds and here. I redrew them myself in sketchup because my son has certain specifications for the hardware that require laying out the neck/body conne...
