Maple/oak project/desk #6: Lid restart,meeting angles...didn't

07-04-2015 04:44 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Another one of “them” days in the shop. Clamps getting flying lessons, because they just kept falling to the floor when I tried to use them. Got the lid angle done ( almost) with an old handplane I had refurbbed up A Stanley No.28. Seemed to be a little lighter than my Stanley #6c…..Left index finger served as a “fence” to keep things going. Tried to match things up with the non-moving part of the lid….even tried hinges, to se what was going on&...

Turning a Wooden Scoop #1: How I turn a sccop on the lathe

06-27-2015 08:55 PM by Jim Jakosh | 22 comments »

Candy, this blog’s for you!!!!!!!!!!!This is the process I use to turn a scoop from a wood blank on the lathe.I start by defining the volume needed in the the scoop. The formula is Pi x R squared x depth I planned on a 1/2 cup scoop and the volume of 4 oz is 7.218 cubic inches and I want the inside to be 2 5/8” So the formula is 3.1416 x ( 1.312) squared x depth = 7.218. The depth figures out to be 1.33” I start by drawing it out and then adding scrap wood in the area...

Mini trim planes #1: More plane inspiration from Mads

06-27-2015 06:26 AM by icemanhank | 0 comments »

My latest tools are these tiny trim planes. Again thanks Mads Felding for the inspiration.They are made from Jarrah and a really lovely figured piece of Banksia; all wood came from the scrap bin. I made two to use up all the timber.The blade is cut from an old 2nd hand Stanley plane using a Dremel. I still have to make another blade, insert the brass pin and design a wedge.I will post pics of the finished articles as soon as I have them finished.

Harbor Freight HVLP with small compressor

06-19-2015 08:22 PM by bigfoot11 | 4 comments »

Every second week, Harbor Freight has their standard HVLP (purple) gun on sale for $15 or sometimes even $10 but the box warns you that you need “X” amount of air to operate it. I say fooey! My small Craftsman pancake compressor advertises 2.7 CFM at 40PSI which is far below the advertised 6 CFM that the gun requires. Perhaps the HVLP gun has a similar “over-specification” as their 2HP dust collector? With the tank full and the regulator set at 50 PSI (while holding...

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. 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...
