I came across this cool angle fixture as they are characterizing it but it has far more potential than just this; I see it as an angle tool for all sorts of applications. At the very least I hope it is inspiring to others.http://airfieldmodels.com/information_source/how_to_articles_for_model_builders/tools/magnetic_building_board/variable_angle_fixtures.htm
short lil bitty, just more planing and trying to figure up glueup. Mainly just a few pics, didn’t take many, phone weighed too much.. initial setup, i moved some around later and liked it betterI had them clamped together to be able to lift the slab and judge some weight..gonna be nice and heavy. Wards Master #6 took a 6.5’ full width shaving for me and had to catch the moment :0 I like where i have them aligned at this point, though i still gotta tweek the gl...
This video has next to zero production value but is a cool process none the less. The strips of ash are dry fit in the jig to get the initial bend, then glued and put back in. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Zd8rwZ4gQI&list=HL1389547025&feature=mh_lolz Hope it motivates others to try something new.
Not a fan of blogs as I don’t need any more computer time, but figured I’d make my first one (maybe my last).So where to start? SWMBO has been asking for a new kitchen table to replace an existing $100 press board & Formica piece of junk.I haven’t made much from Cherry in many years, and have been accumulating a few 4/4 boards from CL thinking, if I found some decent 8/4, then I would start the kitchen table. Several months ago, I learned that one of the local cabi...
Lucked into a couple planks the other day Figured I could make a small table out of two planks. They were 4/4 by 6” by 90” long. Sawed up one plank into 30” long blanks. Then some work with the hand planes Mainly to get some glue joint worthy edges. I also ran the smoothers over the faces of the three boards, just to see what was under all that rough-sawn stuff. Got the three into the clamps Next morning, took the slab out of most of the clamps. ...
In this episode I build a weight organizer for all of the free weights. It only took about 2 hours to build which is not a lot of time. I changed my design 2 times and Im glad I did because my original design would not have worked. I use 2 2×4s and 2 12 in 2×4s for the base.
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.
I got the partition in today and glued and screwed into the bottom fixed shelf. I ran out of clamps so im going to have to wait till tomorrow before I can attach the piece I am holding in the second picture.
In this video I talk about how to make repeatable cuts using a stop block and how the miter joints are the best jointey option for the project. I also cut all the 2×4s and start assembly. Now all I did to assembly it was just glueing the divider pieces and screwing them in
Sunday I went to my first auction. My wife spied an article in the local paper about an estate auction being held nearby and part of the estate was a wood working shop! The auctions started at 10:00, and I didn’t get there until nearly 9:45, so I didn’t have as much chance to walk around and scope things out as I would have liked. I got a little electric sharpener (by craftsman) for $10.00. This will be good enough to hollow grind a set of junkie bench chisels, b...
