Taiko Drums

11-10-2012 12:20 AM by TerryDowning | 1 comment »

I do a lot of volunteering for our local High School Marching Band. The theme of our 2012 show is “Samurai, The Way Of The Warrior” Last spring it was decided we really needed some traditional Japanese Taiko Drums to really make the effect. Taiko Drums typically cost thousands of dollars each. So, some of our parents started doing some research http://www.stanford.edu/group/stanfordtaiko/manual/index.html and we built them ourselves (only hundreds each now). Here is a ...

Craftsman Style Kitchen Cabinets #2: Not Even Cabinets Yet

11-07-2012 11:17 PM by Douglas | 1 comment »

With the windows in an awesome state, it was time to re-arrange some things in the kitchen. There’s a small bedroom off the kitchen, who’s door went right into the kitchen, right next to the sink—a bad place for it.

Luckily, the wall where I wanted to put the door had originally been an exterior window, and the...

Homemade Benchtop Router Table

11-03-2012 03:09 PM by mxrdrver | 2 comments »

I finished up this router table the other day, and thought I would post a couple pics so others could see. The stand is from an old Ridgid table saw stand. I just cut the legs down with my angle grinder. The top is made from 2 pieces of 1/2” MDF topped with plastic laminate. It measures 20”x30”x1” thick. I took special care when I routed out the insert top. I wanted it to look like professional. I epoxied 5/16 nylock nuts all round for the leveling bolts to set in. The...

My First Box Attempt

11-03-2012 05:44 AM by icemanhank | 10 comments »

Hi there, I have been doing bits,n pieces of woodworking for years now and after recently finding this site was inspired by ‘Don’ to have a go at making a box. I have unashamedly been using one of his boxes as a guide because I love the look of it. I joined my local woodworkers club ‘Hawkesbury Woodcraft Co-operative’ and the guys there have been really helpful and supportive, there is also a really good array of equipment and materials to use at the club. I h...

Exercises in Artisanship #31: The Woodrights Galoot library Part 2

10-25-2012 09:40 PM by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

What, no spoons you might be thinking…lol. Well of course not for it is time to get grooving with our Woodrights Galoot Library! No matter what you do sometimes the wood has made up it’s mind on how well it will work for the job. In this episode the old box store pine was what I call a bit “Bitchey”,.....not sawing so well, and especially not up for me having an easy go of dadoing the inner sides. The tools were all plenty sharp but the wood was just a little tough and sappy this tim...
