Final Project Progress #1: Final Project Proposal 1/30/14

176 days ago by Steve Magdinec | 2 comments »

At this point in my creation of a luxurious gun rack, I have accomplished great work. I completed my planning and have cut down and planed the side pieces of my gun rack to the correct measurements. I then used carbon paper to trace my outline onto my cut wood. This is where I am currently at. I have had no problems so far, and hope to be cutting and shaping these two side pieces by next week.

Half Lap Joint

546 days ago by bigchopperoo | 3 comments »

I’m going to do a half lap with a cross cut, chisel paring, and followed through with a shoulder plane. Now if you didn’t know better, you might be thinking I’m an Olympic diver getting ready to execute a stunning high dive. But alas, I am not. I’m a woodworker, and this is a structural joint and the tools I will use to make a simple, yet strong woodworking joint. The Half Lap is a joint used to connect two intersecting pieces of wood. Each piece of wood is sawn to half its thickness. Whe...

Squaring my miter saw

957 days ago by thiswoodshop | 2 comments »

I had a Ryobi 14 Amp 10 in. Compound Mitre Saw. It was working fine but could only cut a max of 5 inches wide boards. I was in the market for a new on but all of the sliding miter saw was so costly. I even considered a Harbor Freight one, but even at that it was a $100 and more for one. I decided to check out craigslist.com and found a Kobalt one there for s feel. Well, after I got home I found out why it was so cheap – it was not square. I tried a couple of time to square it up but it...

Frame Saw Build #4: Stainless Steel Blade Clips

999 days ago by PurpLev | 12 comments »

It’s snowing here so Its out of the unheated shop and staying indoors – good time to make the blade clips. I chose to use stainless steel because I waned a material that won’t rust, be strong and capable of sustaining the blade tension, and I like the color (not a big fan of brass although I do like it as an accent in some cases). I ordered some 1/2” stainless steel rods from Speedymetals a while back for no real reason when I ordered some other material as it was o...

Machinist Toolcart #2: Measure twice, Cut Once, then measure twice again, and cut once more.

1131 days ago by PurpLev | 12 comments »

Its been a while since the previous post mostly because I wasn’t sure I was happy with the original design. I went to the local lumber supplier that carries mahogany plywood and bought the 3/4” material for the carcass and baking. While there I had them cut the 1/2 full sheet to 2 halves (2 quarter sheets) so it’ll be easier for me to transport with my car (don’t have a large truck anymore). With the 2 pieces now sitting in the garage, the original design seemed ...
