Built in E-center, Yala #3: It is finished!

12-03-2011 03:13 PM by topcat | 3 comments »

I haven’t done one of these in a while. The build was a bit excruciating. Took 6 days, about 10-12 hrs. per day. Started on the Thurs. before Thanksgiving. That was an easy day. I just ran around getting all of the materials together and did some initial layout work and rough cut the plywood sides. These were full height and were too awkward to move around, so I used a straight edge and my new PC 8902 router to get the edges of the plywood ready for the face frames. Once the first side ...

Shop builds #1: work bench

11-30-2011 04:51 AM by SamuelP | 2 comments »

One day this workbench may be done. It is made from construction lumber. 4×4s, 2×6s and 2×4s. Other than being a functional piece for my “shop”. I wanted this to be a learning process for joinery I have not attempted. The size is about 4’x2’x35”. The small size has been depicted by my small space, the front portion of a 1 car garage. My one goal was to complete the structure of this workbench using no hardware, i.e., nails, screws, bo...

Moxxon vise in Ukraine too

11-23-2011 06:31 PM by GeorgZudoff | 1 comment »

So, after viewing many of Moxxon vise project here I’ve decided make this one too. Materials – two pine flooring boards, 6 nuts, 2 washers and two peices of threaded rods, all M20. Not finished yet – I would like glue up a cheap leather on the inner parts and make a handles from MDF or plywood. Rather plywood. And only after will post this as a finished project.

Carpenter Cut - Optimal cutlist diagram for iPad/iPhone

11-23-2011 04:03 PM by SmartCutter | 7 comments »

After my previous post here, I got numerous feedback and great ideas from professionals on this site on how to optimize the cutlist diagram to make it useful for professional wood workers. This lead me to develop “Carpenter Cut” app for iPad/iPhone devices. It goes like this: Start with a sheet of plywood (e.g. 48×96), tell it the dimensions and quantity of each part you want to cut from it. Specify the kerf (size for your saw blade (0.125 is the default)), and indicate gr...

Work In Progress #4: Canasta Part 4

11-22-2011 07:29 AM by Byron | 0 comments »

So here it is, the final glue up. I over clamped to be safe, not in the sense of clamping pressure but as far as where I was clamping. This glue up entailed gluing all 4 sets of tails and pins with the mitered front (all the same piece) of the carcass as well as gluing in the center of the floating panel. By glueing the center of the panel I control the movement of expansion and contraction to both edges, ensuring the gaps always stay very close to the same, also keeping them as smal...

I’ve been at it since Thursday, gathering materials and and being a “wild wood whacker.” This was what it looked like at the end of Friday;From Yala, Hakim and Michelle Since then I’ve been curring shelves, drawer parts, countertop and shelf edging. Gluing and screwing and jointing and joining. In 4 days, I’ve put in about 40 hours. Today is more assembly! Hopefully I can have it ready for a primer and first coat by tomorrow morning!

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #1: FINALLY- The first episode is done! You're gonna LOVE IT!

11-12-2011 01:08 AM by StumpyNubs | 63 comments »

Maybe “LOVE” is a strong word. But I’m really excited about the final version of the show, and I think most people will feel the same way. Forget about everything we experimented with before. This is all new. It’s been over a year in development, and And I’d like to think it is a pretty unique format! Here’s how it works… The show is designed to have the feel of a single camera “reality” type show. It is meant to be a glimpse into our workshop as if you were just stopping in...

Firewood Plane #2: Not so alternative plane blanks

10-31-2011 06:13 AM by tr33surg3on | 0 comments »

I decided to abandon the firewood plane blank after I realized it was lodgepole pine. I’m playing it safe by using a Maple turning blank. It was about 2×2x20. I cut it down to two 10” segments and glued them together to make a 2×4x10 blank. It will be a little wider than necessary, but I’ll have plenty of room for error when I rip the sides. It also turned out the blade on my thrift-store #5 is more pitted than I had hoped. I sharpened it as best I cou...
