Shop stuff #44: Doc's little docs #4: File storage

04-02-2016 06:00 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

One of the things most folks who fix things have is a file, or two, or a bunch, depending on what you need them for. They come in all shapes and sizes depending on their purpose. Files are made from very hard steel. One would think that they would be hard to damage, but they will dull. Particularly if, like me, you store them all together in a drawer of a tool box. You really want to protect them from banging into each other. It does them no good at all. I spend a couple of pennies and...

Shop Improvements #1: Garage Partition

03-29-2016 08:28 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 5 comments »

I have a two car garage. I need to get the measurements but basically one half belongs to my boat, camping gear, fishing gear and a few storage racks for miscellaneous gear. For now my shop is in the other half plus a little 4’x6’ that the previous owner remodeled to take away from the room we call the office and reappropriate the space to the garage. It’s a cool lil space for a Kobalt tool bench and some floor cabinets on wheels that houses all kinds of paint for now. Anyw...

Rotating Star Box Design

03-18-2016 01:57 AM by BertFlores58 | 3 comments »

At least a new prospect (design stage) for a box with 6 colors is finished. The truth is the difficulty in joining 4 corners that would match in way of doing a mitered box. Anyone who is interested is welcome to copy and make it a reality. What is important is the possibility of just making the design and the contrast of colors that will create an illusion. This weekend I will account available materials and start setting the smallest piece that I could start. And if you want a sket...

Center Keyed Box Joints

03-18-2016 12:08 AM by Katz-Moses Woodworking | 6 comments »

Here is a video I just finished on Center Keyed Box Joints. One of the harder things about box joints is getting an equal sized key on both the top and the bottom. Here I show how to get equal sized keys regardless of the height of your board or the width of your dado stack. It is a really cool way to do the joints and the result is as decorative as it is functional. If you like this video and want to get updates on my future projects please subscribe to my Youtube Channel. You can also see 1...

The art of building Wooden boats

03-16-2016 03:14 AM by BigBrownLog | 8 comments »

I’m just getting this blog post started so it already set up, but in the next 6 months I should have everything up and running for me to build wooden boats for people. I’ll be starting out with some strip built kayaks and canoes most likely. In all actuality I have no idea what people are going to want. I plan on just getting the word out and let people come to me so we can sit down and draw up exactly what they want. After I’ve got a good thing going I will start cold moldi...

Workshop #1: Conception

03-15-2016 11:01 PM by Matt | 0 comments »

So, I have been working for years out of my garage and whenever I want to do something “real” I run into the problem I don’t have anything “set up”. Nothing has a place. There is no workflow. During my latest project (I’m building a view camera and a pinhole camera) I became so frustrate I stopped and decided to take over our small garage bay that was serving as our shed. I had it with working without organization and without dust collection. So, I...

OCTAGONAL TRIVETS

03-15-2016 04:35 AM by BertFlores58 | 2 comments »

THE DESIGN This is the design where it has started. At first, I thought it was difficult due to complicated angles. but what I realized later there were only two angles that will be cut namely: 22.5 deg and 45 deg cut. The 45 degree is only used when the star in the middle is to be done. THECONSTRUCTION So I started with making the stripes. I glued 4 pcs of stacks that I already prepared in making the coaster. Selecting the 4 colors: green (not know wood), black (kamagong), bro...
