Homemade Hot Hide Glue Brush

01-06-2018 05:49 AM by Rich | 3 comments »

I’ve become something of a hide glue junky. It started with liquid hide glue. I was intrigued with the chemistry of adding urea to hide glue and water, following the cooking method and emerging with a glue that’s strong, liquid at room temperature, and probably the easiest to work with that I know of. Liquid hide glue has some great characteristics, but lately I ventured into hot hide glue. I’ll leave the nuances of liquid versus hot to the experts like shipwright, but...

Router table upgrade

01-03-2018 01:35 AM by Al Breit | 2 comments »

I just took my Kreg router table enclosed the router motor for better dust collection and added drawers for storage of router bits. I bent up an aluminum box to enclose the router with a 4” dust port. Added some extra holes for locking the spindle and a brass bar for locking the spindle height after adjustments. For the brass bar I cut a slot just big enough to allow the bar to fit through and a simple heavy duty rubber band to keep the lock leave upright. My Tryton router had it builti...

Ridgid Oscillating Sander (Motor hard starting problem)

12-31-2017 03:02 PM by woodshaver Tony C | 10 comments »

Our daughter-in-law gave our son a Christmas gift (2017) of a Ridgid Oscillating Sander from Home Depot. Motor won’t start every time and if it does start it’s slow starting and strains a bit before starting. Same problem with the motor/solenoid that I had after buying 3 and returning them a few years ago. I found the reason why the motor would sometimes not start and then end up smoking if you didn’t turn it off immediately. Watch this youtube video that I foundR...

Adjustable Height WorkBench - EXACTLY HOW IT WORKS

12-31-2017 12:10 AM by CharlieK | 7 comments »

An Adjustable Height Odyssey – Why I built this workbench, and HOW IT WORKSCharlie Kocourek How it All StartedI had a few problems with my first workbench. It was too low for carving or for detail work, it was too high for assembly, it was also too high to sit behind my table saw, and it was difficult to move around. It was anything but ergonomic! After some thought, I concluded that an Adjustable Height Workbench could solve all of these problems. I then searched the int...

Creating a Mixed Nut Dish from a log I found

12-29-2017 05:41 PM by beahan | 3 comments »

I wanted to make a nut dish like one that my grandparents used to have. Recently I found a log that was thick enough to make one. I know this project is rather simple to do, but I think the nut dish looks way better than a plastic bowl of nuts on the counter. I have embedded the video, enjoy! Chris View on YouTube

Large variety of exotic hardwoods and wood working tools. Free for my fellow LJocks

12-27-2017 05:46 AM by kiara583 | 20 comments »

Helped a friend move from large house with fully equipped woodworking shop to a smaller home. The overwhelming task of packing a 3500 sq ft house plus shop was difficult. Ran out of storage room so everything else was to be thrown out. Thought it would be a shame to throw it away so I spent a week hoping someone would appreciate this treasure. Will post more pictures. Turning tools, large dust collector, drill press, saws etcs. Could sell but would rather share. I only have time invested ...

Making some last minute gifts for xmas 3D Puzzles

12-20-2017 08:09 PM by BenhamDesign | 2 comments »

So Christmas is upon us and I need some stocking stuffers. So I thought I would build some 3d puzzles cubes.If you are interested in building a few of these you can download a template. Watch on YouTube or read about it below As with most projects, I started milling up the lumber and cutting it to the overall size. Since it is a pain to sand a bunch of little pieces I decided to the board before I cut it up.To insure each piece came out to the same size I set a stop on my miter gauge...

Shop stuff #113: Something Roubo-esque Pt 1 It's a long video

12-18-2017 09:41 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

They are taking down some dead and dangerous trees around our place. If you have been following you will know that I have plenty of firewood. I decided to take a section on one tree and mill it up into slabs, freehand, with a chain saw. Not a job for the faint of heart. Then I proceed to “take the ugly” out of it with a router and sled. I am calling this Part One of “Something Roubo-esque” as I am hoping it is the start of my workbench build. Parts of this series...
