We continue on with the build and get our dados sorted out.
I was reading my RSS feeds the other day and came across this article in Woodworking magazine. As soon as I saw it I knew that I had to make one for myself! I have a Bessey vise that I got for a few dollars at the Columbus Flea market here in NJ. You know the old saying, you get what you pay for? Well I did! Needless to say it still served some kind of purpose for me, I tuned it up and made the best of it.When I looked at the article in WW online zne I started to get excited and w...
Since I cannot at this moment show my workshop as I am in search of a space, even though I have bought the machines and still in boxes. What I can do is to show the photos of my machines, some of the tools & accessories, don’t have photos for everything. <div></div>
Hi Folks,Before I continue with finishing the neck and scroll I decided to do the contours of the cello back. As I have a whole day working I want to get this job done. Its quite hard work and you need to pace yourself. A few weeks ago I joined the two halves of the back using hot hide glue. I didn’t have my camera so I borrowed this photo to show what the outcome is. The link to follow for the image is http://www.jasminedavis.com/cello/gallery/albums.php its an excellent site for the c...
“This molding cutter will not fit my insert for the table saw,” I says to me. So I says, “Let’s make a new one.” “Use some MDF and trace the Zero Clearance Insert you bought from Lee Craft,” says I to me. “yes, and good folk they were.” “Trace the thickness needed” says I. Okay, enough of that weird self talk. Time for the coping saw, having ripped MDF to thickness. Trace the parts of the old ZCI so that it will fit...
I know, more cheap shelves. Let’s face it, most of us would rather buy tools not shelves. With that in mind here is a shlef that only requires 2×4s, 1/2” plywood, wood screws,& some nuts,bolts, & washers. I have seen quite a few of your workshops out there, And a lot of you have metal buildings with C or Z purlins to columns type metal building construction. So this will be the kind of drawing that I’m posting today. You can apply the same principles to a buildi...
Here’s the smallest table in my shop. I built it because I needed to cut small radius with my jigsaw and didn’t want to be cutting into my workbench. There’s not much to it. Four legs, a 4×4 with some pocket holes at the top to attach a small piece of replaceable plywood to. Besides using for cuttig with the jigsaw, I use it when I want to drill a hole through something and I don’t want a hole in my workbench. It also comes in handy for routing smaller pieces usei...
I started this project after building an assembly table from an issue of Wood Magazine (March 2010). The table was a lot of work (the torsion box top) but the main unit holding the table up was an easy build. That’s when I hit upon the idea of using the same design for a group of extra tables for other uses. I’ve built a number of these already, and am using one as a router table, a miter saw station, and a sharpening station. It is built using standard re-dimensioned co...
Building a stable for my Church’s Nativity from recycled poplar beams. The beams came from the Church’s restoration in 2007 ( FOR RIVER GIRL: This Nativity Stable is in a Church next door to the GRC Memoral.)
This is a bike I’m making for my daughter, it still lacks the finishing touches, like final paint coat, and the lacquer. The seat and the wheels we bought, everything else is water resistant plywood, screws and birch wood. The body of the bike can be flipped up side down to achieve greater seat height.
