Workshop #29: New Bandsaw Stand

28 days ago by clieb91 | 2 comments »

I bought my old Craftsman bandsaw off of Craigslist a sometime ago and it came with a metal stand with some nice retractable wheels. You see it here in an old shop picture. It has done a great job but I was constantly tightening the screws holding it on the stand and when I moved it into place next to my new lathe I soon was tripping over the splayed legs or killing my ankle on the wheel locks. So I finally took some time to get a new stand built for it. the best part is that I...

Design Conundrum #1: Writing Desk

29 days ago by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 4 comments »

So I’ve been playing around with Sketchup this afternoon and I am a bit stuck. I came across a design for a writing desk top that I really liked, but my problem is that I cannot figure out a good base for it to sit on. I came up with this design, but I am not happy with it because it doesn’t fit with my normal aesthetic. It feels a little too much on the modern side and box-y. (Dimensions: 40×20x30) Any suggestions?

Gouge rack #1: gouge rack#1

29 days ago by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 1 comment »

With both ‘Holly’s Jasper’ and the Sawcliffe Green man well under way to getting done, I took a few days out to address an issue that irritates my OCD. Even though my work bench weighs almost 300lbs, it still carries vibration and moves my carefully arranged tools from their place while I work with a mallet. So, here is the answer. The rack holds 21 of my most used gouges, the two angled blocks in the back of the first pic will affix the rack at 12 deg., and they will have a...

I figure that these new ones will go to my helper in time. and new legs for my hacking stock I m...

In need of Green Hedge Wood

35 days ago by jr7 | 0 comments »

Im new to this site so I hope im not breaking any rules by this post. I would like to know if anyone out there would happen to have some green hedge for sale. Hedge was used quite often in the 50’s and 60’s as fence posts. The green comes from the hedge being in the ground in fairly wet places to my knowledge. Any help would be appreciated. I plan to turn bowls and duck calls out of this wood
