Machinist Toolcart #9: Half Finished and Drawers Part II

08-17-2011 06:08 AM by PurpLev | 9 comments »

This project is half finished – Literally I mean. I figured since I’ll be working on the drawers, and the toolcart is in the basement it’ll get dirty, and oily finger marks might penetrate the wood and no sanding in the world will take those out, so I decided to finish the cabinet and protect it from the ‘elements’ around…. and boy did I get struck out by one of those elements… but more about that later. And so I gave the cabinet a good sanding wit...

Machinist Toolcart #4: Gluing up the Carcass

06-22-2011 04:03 PM by PurpLev | 8 comments »

Had another quick chance for some shop time and used that to glue together the fitted carcass. I didn’t want to deal with the glueup the day before (after fitting the dividers) as I knew I would need a peace of mind and ample time to do the glueup properly and not rush through it. And so, I cleared the workbench from all the ‘things’ that always seem to end up on it (how is that always happening?!?) to have use of it’s full length (barely enough) and laid down the c...

CA Glue - Did I not take Chemistry?

06-16-2011 08:22 PM by Transition | 4 comments »

I also posted this in the Safety forum: •I often use my bare fingers around CA and will get it on my hands. This usually isn’t a big deal, however I recently let a good deal of it build up rapidly, and got a nice little burn. The burn was small, but the heat generated by the curing CA glue was very significant and extremely painful. I believe the heat caused the burn, and not a chemical reaction with my skin. The MSDS for CA glue also warns against using cotton gloves, as apparently CA wil...

Lost & Found: The Literal Splinter in the Sawdust Stack.

04-05-2011 04:11 PM by spunwood | 6 comments »

Well, I was getting ready to assemble a 16×20 frame, when I realized that the woman who ordered it needed to give input on the finish. While inspecting it, a piece just fell off with the sligtest tough from my finger. I didn’t think too much about it and threw it somewhere. After showing my wife, her first response was, what happened there? Well, I thought it made it look more rustic, but apparently too rustic because that was the first response of the woman I was selling...

DoorWay Chat

03-09-2011 04:37 AM by SplashMaster | 1 comment »

The other day I was home for spring break from school and I was standing in my bedroom doorway talking to my Mom. While I was standing there I was playing with the molding around the door frame (The bottom part was all ready broken and only held on by one nail) and of course it decides to break completely of at that nail. So naturally I propped it up against the door frame. Mom said I dont think that will cut it lol. So I said I got this (b/c Im a LJ) I garbed my bottle of wood glue off my bo...

The Chronicles of Woodworking in a Can #14: I Made a Hole!

02-28-2011 02:04 AM by cmckerliesr | 3 comments »

So I have been planning where or how the electrical will be coming into the shop or can. In case you are wondering the can is made of 22 mm steel. I was not sure if my punch set was going to be able to pull the hole because it said it could be used up to 10 gauge steel.So here is what I used to pull the hole, of course I drilled a pilot hole first.Yes it is a cheap piece of crap. But I do not pull a lot of holes in metal and it served the purpose. I have owned this thing for about 8 years, an...
