I bought some small woodworking toys for my son one Christmas and when we were putting things together he made a comment that he would like his own workbench someday. This got the ol hamster whel a turning and I did some research into so ideas i could use to make him one. SOme blood sweat and one broken toe later He got one made just for him. He is also a huge Baltimore Orioles Fan as u can tell.

Wow! Has it really been that long??? Kind of off topic well maybe...

08-23-2014 01:20 AM by Huckleberry | 2 comments »

I was perusing Lumberjocks when I logged in and noticed it had been over 400 days since I posted anything. So what have I been up to you ask? Work, school, work, family, homework and tests… I graduated high school in 1995 (some will laugh others will be like hey youngster!) and one thing I have determined is I hated algebra then and I sure in the hell hate it now… Outside of that I have muddled in woodworking here and there and nothing real serious. That was until Festool had...

HFDC Dust Collector Optimization #1: HF-DC Dust Collector Optimization

08-18-2014 03:02 PM by Morton WoodWorks | 9 comments »

I know that many people have modified the HF-DC but I just wanted to put my spin out there. I have been doing a lot of research on the many different styles of updates/modifications that have been done and holy cow there are a lot. But, most of them rely on the Thien principle that seems to be pretty simple. On the Thien blog there is a guy that tests and records many different modifications with different setups. I am going to set-out to make my entire system buying the least amount as p...

Shop Notes #13: Spaulting of Walnut?

08-11-2014 05:22 PM by DocSavage45 | 6 comments »

Don’t know if this should be a forum topic or a blog. But here it goes. Although I shouldn’t have. I purchased a chain saw and a mill. Have yet to use it. Planning on harvesting wood from our compost site in town. I have two lofty Walnut trees. It sloughs off non functional life generating branches. My neighbor wanted to cut a lower horizontal limb not yet dropped by the tree. I had been planning to do this in practice. But he wanted to get his new recreational mobile ...

...in Which Tim Makes a Rake

08-09-2014 03:07 AM by Tim Anderson | 4 comments »

Ever since I bought a house, I’ve found myself doing too much yardwork, and not enough woodworking. I decided I could use yardwork as an excuse to woodwork. Rather than buy a $45 aluminum landscaping rake that I would probably only use 4 times in my life, I decided to use the old rake handle I found in the yard when the snow melted and a 2×4 to make my own. The first step was to remove the broken end of the existing handle: With this done, I started shaving off the end with m...

Morris style glider #1: Design and adapting to fit onto glider base

08-09-2014 01:14 AM by Orange008 | 1 comment »

My wife and I have recently found out we are expecting. Once I knew, I just had to make something for my wife and soon to be child. I know it is great to have a rocking chair in the baby’s room to rock them to sleep. I have always liked the look and movement of glider rockers. I figured it was the perfect opportunity to build one. I got the core plans from Wood magazine’s issue 112. I followed the plans for the chair pretty much exactly. Due to the low p...

Last time I posted on that project I was steam bending my mouldings. The columned were veneered in a previous post. Since this post we had another job to do a video on veneering column with Liquid Hide Glue that we posted on our Old Brown Glue playlist on youtube. It is uploading at the moment so go see it later if you are interested in learning how to veneer columns, we are pretty proud of it. The columns were turned with groves to allow for black rings. T...

Hi all, My woodworking club has a competition each year called ‘The Super Foot’ and entry costs a small fee and all entrants get a piece of wood equivilant to 12×12 x 1” (even though Australia is a metric country) to make whatever they can dream up. You cannot use ANY other timber than the super foot but using fittings and assorted other non timber items is allowed. I will post some of the finished items next month after judging as there are normally some real...
