Adventures in Lutherie #3: Oops! I'll use it somewhere

11-13-2016 03:04 AM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

While working on the dulcimer for my wife, I cut the fingerboard too short. It’s okay, I have plenty of wood and it was still just a stick with no real crafting invested in it. But figured I’d put it to good use. I cut the peg head into one end as ‘practice’ for the real thing. So now I have this fingerboard with a peg head cut into it. It’s too narrow for a cigar box guitar. Looking around the internet, I think I can use it to make a 4 string ‘teno...

Simple Machine Shop Upgrade - Self-storing Power and Dust Collection

11-08-2016 01:02 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 3 comments »

I love my shop. The power tools, the hand tools, the padded luthier workbench, and the integrated dust collection. Especially the dust collection. One point of frustration however, is the relatively limited storage space. And so I’ve had to find spaces in every crevice and corner, and install shelving and hooks around the wood-paneled walls. A particularly frustrating problem was the lack of convenient power and dust collection on my main workbench/tablesaw outfeed table. The rout...

DIY Tools | Woodworking #3: Bandsaw Jig to Cut Log Slices / Christmas Ornaments

11-08-2016 10:44 AM by Humus Workshop | 2 comments »

Hi everyone, a few weeks ago a friend asked me these slices to use as Christmas ornaments and I took the opportunity to release the laser machine. So far I had cut the logs by freehand but this jig is very handy and works very well. Hope make more jigs for the bandsaw in the future because is very handy to save money in blades. Check out the video here: https://youtu.be/dKV1M2XVJ2s Thanks for watching and be loving!

Down Draft Sanding Box

10-31-2016 01:30 AM by Redoak49 | 3 comments »

I was working on some boxes and doing a lot of sanding and even with an air filter on, there was a lot of dust in the air. I had a small down draft sanding box but it was not big enough and decided I needed a bigger one. I made the box about 24” square and 6” tall. The sides are 1/2” plywood and the top is 1/4” pegboard which originally had 3/16” holes. I got it together and attached a 4” dust collector port on one side. I tried it out with my dust c...

Crown molding solution

10-29-2016 03:49 PM by Don Butler | 8 comments »

Installing new crown molding in a 200 + year old house is a challenge at best. There are simply no 90º corners anywhere. But the drawing above illustrates yet another conundrum. Someone in the dim past simplified an outside corner wall with a vertical corner molding. Good for him. Not so good for us. If I just butt the crownmolding to the outside corner bead it will look like drawing #2.I wanted a solution that wouldn’t call for stripping off the vertical corner molding but which wo...

Shop stuff #59: Makita 2012 thickness planer service

10-17-2016 12:27 AM by JimDaddyO | 11 comments »

Well, the planer was leaving tracks on one part of the blade. Obviously a chip in the knives at that point. So, with the camera rolling, I decided I would give the machine a bit of a clean up. It is a Makita 2012 planer, a little 12” lunchbox planer that I got from my father in law. So, the price was right. It is a bit odd in that the table moves up and down and the motor stays fixed in place. That makes in feed and out feed tables just about impossible. But, it is a good little ...
