Not always wood #1: PVC Pipe Stool with some woodworking.

06-13-2015 11:38 PM by Nighthawk | 0 comments »

PVC Pipe Stool with some woodworking. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UM82xM8cwf4 Even though my Youtube channel is known as ‘Wacky Wood Works’ the first line on my about page reads, “Making simple projects with wood, plastic, metal, fabric, cardboard & anything else. Simply making stuff. Most projects are made purely off the cuff and only have a general idea how it will turn out.” So basically just generally making stuff. Although wood will be my most co...

Not always wood #2: Dust Extractor Blast Gate

03-29-2015 08:55 AM by Nighthawk | 0 comments »

http://www.wackywoodworks.co.nz/blastgate.php While this a full PVC blast gate it can be made in the average woodworkers woodshop with ease. But because of this I have simply made a blog post and not a project post etc In the video I am making a PVC blast gate for my home dust extractor system. You can treat PVC like wood, and can cut it on the Table saw, mitre saw, band saw, use the sanding wheels etc. On the thicker pipe we use jigsaws However on the table saw and mitre saw cut slowly...

Live and Learn

03-08-2015 04:13 AM by LJackson | 3 comments »

So I’ve been doing a lot of screwing making 16 Izzy Swan style bar clamps. He uses two cordless drills, one with a drill bit in it, and another with a driver, so that he can quickly make holes and drill the screws into the wood. Me, I have to change bits. Additionally, I do not have a drill bit that both drills the appropriate hole and the counter sink in one. For me it is three bit changes per hole. Then I remembered that I have a Makita hammer driver. I could use that for the drive...

Dave Plays with Wood Turning #1: In the Beginning...

12-15-2014 08:45 PM by Dave Rutan | 5 comments »

I had it in mind for some time now to rig up something on which I could do some small wood turning. The photos above and below show the result of that. I have some bugs to work out yet with this set up. The drive end wobbles a bit under pressure while cutting. I’m thinking I could add some support to the shaft of the drive spur to help stabilize it. I also think I need a sharpening day. I just used my straight mortising chisels. They work after a fashion, but I think they&#...

Tales of a Hack #2: Brand loyalty: The cocaine of woodworking

12-10-2014 06:57 AM by ajw1978 | 6 comments »

As I write this, I’m staring at three sets of drill/driver combination kits and my eyes hurt from scouring the web searching for reviews, pros and cons for each set. I’m torn between fleeting brand loyalty, the thought of what “might be” for me in the hobby, and the stark realization of who I am, what I do and how infrequently I do it. So, bring a writer by trade and unable to adequately convey to the CEO just how important this decision is and how difficult it will...

Dave's Workshop #4: Drills-Keeping Things More at Hand

10-30-2014 09:20 PM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

Above: A while ago I built this stand for my drill press. It’s got a deep drawer and two shelves behind double doors. It got really tiring having to open the doors, bend over, and reach in to grab either my electric (corded drill,) or my handy hand drill. So today I put a thought into action. I looked up drill holders and found this really basic design to keep things at hand. Above: A simple chunk of 2×4 with two holes drilled into it and a little cutting and I got thi...

Current Project #16: Brad Point Drill Case

10-28-2014 03:36 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

At the moment I have a guitar with a reglued bridge on my work table and since the chair is on hold until I buy some wood, I decided to do something small. I’ve had a new set of seven brad point bits for over a year and they’ve lived on my drill press table, just scattered about. Today I decided to build a wooden case for them out of scrap wood. The photo is of he glue up. I’ll be adding a hinged wooden lid to add to the ‘looks-like-a-10-year-old-made-this’...

Cookbook Shelf Units #3: Drilling the Dowel Holes

05-26-2014 04:01 AM by Greg Guarino | 2 comments »

They’re done. All 256 of them. I rethought and then reconfigured the jig a bit so I could keep the same reference surface when drilling both ends of the “rungs”. It went very quickly: That was the very first one and it took a little under a minute. 32 of them took a little under a half hour. Next I had to drill the mating holes in the stiles. I rebuilt the jig from the same parts, marked up the pieces, and started drilling: With some trepidation, I dry fit tw...
