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...

Odds 'N' Ends #7: Micro-Tapering on the Jointer

03-14-2016 08:09 PM by ThomasLightle | 4 comments »

I call any taper that cannot be accurately cut on the table saw a micro taper. Usually anything under 1 degree. The taper I needed to cut was 0.2 degrees, so the only tool for the job was the jointer. The process was pretty simple. I needed to taper 1/16” over an 18-inch length. I made a 1/16” spacer and raised my jointer to a 1/16” cut. I placed one end of the panel on the spacer and ran the panel through the jointer. As the front edge of the panel hits the knives, t...

Parallel Dust Deputy #1: Parallel Dust Deputy - Proof of Concept

03-10-2016 02:29 PM by MinnesotaSteve | 4 comments »

A few years ago I bought a Dust Deputy cyclone with the buckets and everything, and it was most awesome. My vacuum at the time was a little 3HP Shopvac. However last year I bought a bigger 6.5HP Shopvac which pulls a lot more air as well as a lot more suction. This new vac overpowers the Dust Deputy, when turned on the hose going to the cyclone violently contracts. In the manual, Oneida shows using two Dust Deputy cyclones in parallel to better handle a larger vac. They even sell a...

The Dream of my Workshop #1: Design Stage #1

03-08-2016 07:38 PM by GWTaylor | 4 comments »

With my limited space to do woodworking in my basement a shop as always been a dream of mine. Cost has always stopped me from pushing forward, but have been able to make some purchases of tools that I have used during the warmer months here in Canada. Now that my youngest son has decided to take woodworking through 4-H, I have volunteered my time as a woodworking leader. I will be setting up a shop in a pole barn but have to wait for spring in order to pour my concrete slab for the shop, i...

$500 New Shop Budget!

03-05-2016 04:43 PM by Cathie Zimmerman | 4 comments »

I’ve drawn many plans… to many projects… These projects have included everything from programming micro controllers, engineering helpful technology for around the house and designing furniture for kids. The problem is… When it comes to woodworking I was always so nervous about it not being perfect that I never made the first cut. My wife gave me a budget of $500 to get some tools and materials to get started! I have a basic Ryobi kit with an impact drill, drill, ...

Cigar Shop - Display Rack

02-27-2016 11:32 PM by McPheel | 0 comments »

The other day my brother gave me a call, asking if I wanted to build something for his shop. He owns a Cigar shop in Whitecourt Alberta called Cheap Smokes and Cigars. It’s a really cool shop, very classy and nostalgic, they have the basic inventory of cigarettes which they sell cheaper than any gas station or grocery store can offer, but beyond that they have an array of humidors (My creations will soon be joining this inventory), Pipes, Tobacco, Vaporisers and a massive walk in humido...
