Shop Tips & Tricks #15: Down and Dirty Proportional Dividers

41 days ago by GnarlyErik | 4 comments »

Have you ever wished to scale something up or down, either from plans or from actual objects? Then, you looked around the shop only to realize you don’t have any convenient tool other than measuring with rulers and then trying to convert using sometimes shaky math – especially if using English measures in feet, inches and fractions? (A quick aside here – metrics are so much more convenient to use! Although, it is ever so hard to make the initial roll-over and adjustment into me...

Woodworking For Therapy #13: Cold Weather Has Some Challenges When Your Sick

45 days ago by Steve Kreins | 5 comments »

Cold weather certainly doesn’t help when most of your cutting, sanding and routing has to be done under the patio cover. I know that most of my Buddies on LJs are in worse weather regions than I am, but still, brrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Cold weather also complicates disabilities. The aches and pains are a little worse, some have to stay warm because of medicines or treatments and generally when you have a disability such as cancer, your immune system is compromised. SO PLEASE, BE CAREFUL, I P...

Shop Notes #10: Thank You Randy! (Blackie the bandsaw box maker)

46 days ago by DocSavage45 | 19 comments »

Just a quick thankyou for a suggestion given to me by Randy when a few blogs ago I asked “what do you do about rust?” Randy (Blackie) suggested a bucket and a couple of Gallons of cider vinegar to soak my clamps in that were rusting …just sitting around! I thought I’d try regular white vinegar on my planes that I bought on Ebay as I had been sanding and rubbing with steel wool. Took a zip lock plastic bag and put the plane irons and other rusted small parts l...

Cutting board from builders' samples

49 days ago by sgmdwk | 4 comments »

When some friends from church learned I was a wood worker they brought me a box of samples they had left over from building their house. These were squares of finished wood, about 5 to 6 inches a side and around 3/8 inch thick. Some were stained, some painted; some were milled, some flat. There was alder, oak, birch, mahogany, walnut, hickory, cherry. “We were sure you could find something to do with them,” they said. It was an interesting pile. But what o do with it? I mad...

my first blog entry: I made a plexiglass cross cut sled! & step by Video

49 days ago by MikesProjects | 5 comments »

I needed a new table saw sled for a different saw i’m using. I’m currently finishing a miter saw cut station I built & needed a sled to make small cuts. After having made a few others I notice how wooden sleds react to moisture content in the air so I wanted this new one to be built with out wood. I made this new sled out of left over plexiglass I had laying around & used aluminum for the runners. The fence is actual bulletproof glass.It came out better looking than I wou...

Another one of those HF Dust Collector builds... #1: design phase - conceptual drawings

49 days ago by Chauffeur | 2 comments »

My trusty Craftsman shop vac has served me well for the past 25 years. It just won’t die; but it’s time to upgrade. I’ve simply taken in far too much hobby sawdust over the last 25 years. Bought a HF Dust Collector about three weeks ago. The Spousal Unit was pleased (she was curious as to why it took me so long). If I would have only known that… The box has not been opened yet. I’ve been plowing through the plethora of information available on Lumberj...

Gusto!

52 days ago by gohei82 | 3 comments »

So, my very first blog entry! I just wanted to put down something about my approach to woodworking, as well as in many other aspects of my life. I’m currently re-reading Wilbur Smith’s chronicles of the fictional Courtney and Ballantyne families. I’ve read them at least two times before, but this time I’m reading it in english. At more than one occation, i noticed the word “Gusto”, an looking it up in my kindle’s dictionary, I fell in love with th...
