DoDecaHedron Light Fixtures #2: It's actually looking OK

09-06-2012 03:14 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 3 comments »

Howdy, I have a lot more sanding to do and I’m filling the inside. The outside of the structure has been rough sanded and filled. I’m not real happy that I used filler at all but that’s how it goes when you are a rookie. What you might be able to see here is that I used poplar because it is very light weight for a lighting pendant. the outside is actually crosscut. If it comes out as well as I hope it will, I ought to get a nice look out of it. The insides are goin...

Flag Box #5: Base

09-03-2012 07:50 PM by DBoltz | 0 comments »

Last time we got the splines installed and flushed up. Now, we will get the base done. Mortises cut on the base and on the bottom of the flag box using your standard drill press and chisel combo. Here we have the majority of the waste of a mortise hogged out using a forstner bit on the drill press. I just used a handheld drill on the bottom of the flag box. Here you can see the supports with the top tenon. They are just dry in the base with the mortise and tenon. I have the layou...

Dave's Workshop #2: The Disappearing Clamp Rack

09-01-2012 11:44 AM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

Wall space is a premium in my shop because of the multiple uses of the space. When I started thinking about making clamps I knew I would need a place to store them. I devised a way to put a clamp rack in front of my scrap stick area and hinge it so that it could be pulled up to the ceiling when I didn’t need to access my longer clamps. It’s raised with two pullies with the rope held taught with an old window sash weight. A clip hooks onto a screw eye at the bottom of the rack...

Tool thoughts #34: Rockler answered the call & the Brown truck delivereth

09-01-2012 10:00 AM by NedB | 1 comment »

Morning folks! Been a quiet week out in the shop. There were two days when I didn’t even make it out there at all, which is Not how I want to ‘run’ things, but life got in the way. That was OK though. I spent two of the non-shop days with my youngest son, we went to the movies and saw ‘the Dark Knight Rises’. I’m much more of a Marvel fan than DC in the comics realm, but I sure do like the latest iteration of the Batman movies, not just Dark Knight, but...

Tool Chest Refurb #6: Okay, This Time it's All About the Lid...

08-25-2012 02:06 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 34 comments »

Where are we? Oh, yeah. There’s a top skirt (not glued): And the frame part of the frame and panel: With the idea (stupid, perhaps) to use the old, original bottom boards for the panel. Jointed, with biscuits to glue, and work can go on. A problem becomes apparent when clean-up begins. A crack (or craic), that is more like a split, but not good in either sense. With the intervention of my LJ pals, I chose the right path and split the board, then glued up the ...
