Hands-on with the Shaper Origin

03-19-2017 09:43 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 2 comments »

When I was first searching for a CNC to add to my shop, I ran across an odd tool called the Shaper Origin. The tool was in essence a self-correcting router that works like a hand-held CNC machine. I spent some time watching the videos on their site and reading through the blog. It was a novel idea, though it wasn’t quite ready to ship (as I write the the first batch is slated to ship Fall 2017) and not really what I wanted/needed for guitar work. Still, it seemed absolutely incredib...

It was made to comb mail #1: A mahogany foundry pattern

02-17-2017 01:01 AM by Patternguy | 8 comments »

A picture story about building a pattern. 10 years ago, I was the CAD/CAM guy for a pattern shop. We also had a plaster molding shop and an aluminum foundry, where we pressure cast aluminum match plates. 10 years before that, I was on the bench, building the wood master patterns that went on to become match plates. 20 years before that, I was serving a Pattern maker’s apprenticeship in an iron foundry. The master I learned from once ran General Motors, “Tech Center”...

100 foot cabinet shop #1: Thoughts behind the shop and working standards

02-13-2017 01:50 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Used to have a shop, X got in the divorce. :( Fast forward 15 years & I have 2/3 of 1/2 of a garage to build a cabinet shop in. The core of any shop is the table saw and within my (retired) spending limit I got a brand new Grizzly G0715P. Simultaneously with the saw purchase I added an Incra LS-III rip fence and an Incra miter gauge. I’m disabled and can’t walk / stand a lot so everything is within reach of my chair in front of the saw. I’ve got most all of th...

Hello again folks! This weekend’s project was a toy gun, but I wanted to make the trigger click back after being fired. To accomplish this, I used a simple rubber band! The main shape was cut out using a Shapeoko 3 CNC machine. Enjoy! View on YouTubeuTube

Shop Remodel #29: Blame it on Star Wars

01-01-2016 02:27 AM by bearkatwood | 5 comments »

Hello all, I haven’t been keeping up with this blog very well this week. It is because I haven’t had a lot to report. I have been trying to finish up the carving on the till, but it has been slow going. I might have to pull out some power carving goodies to get on top of it. I was hoping to get started on the bench this week and I may well get out the maple tomorrow to see if I have enough, I’m little skeptical about it. I might have to alter the design to accommodate it. On...
