HTC Mobile Base Hack for Jointer

01-02-2017 10:38 PM by Randy Price | 1 comment »

I needed a way to move my jointer from its present location at one end of my shop to the other end so it would be closer to the table saw. I also wanted a way to move it out when I need it and then move it back into a corner when not in use (I don’t use it all that much). I had this HTC mobile base that I bought for my table saw years ago – I don’t have the saw anymore – so I wanted to use the mobile base for the jointer. the problem was that although the base w...

Roubo-ish work bench #1: Laminating the Top

01-02-2017 05:37 PM by galooticus | 1 comment »

First blog post! I’ve been making shavings for about two years now using this monstrosity vaguely resembling a bench: It’s the most incredible bench ever, measuring in at a roomy 11’ long and 36” high. Has two shelves and even supports a kitchen sink attachment, however the previous owner either didn’t spring for it or took it with them. EVERY surface is curved (great for setting planes bottom-down, no need to worry about the blade dulling) and it rocks...

Shop stuff #68: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 6

12-13-2016 09:40 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

In this segment I get the stretchers made and joined to the legs of the coffee table. I am still not accustomed to the new saws and will have to put more effort into my form. Never the less, the half lap dovetails come out OK. Except for one little repair that had to be made along the way. There will be more mistakes in upcoming videos, but they all get dealt with. As I was editing this I noticed I went from shorts and a T shirt to long pants and a pull over. The change in seasons is st...

Acoustic Instruments #2: Starting the Marimba

11-20-2016 03:36 PM by johnstoneb | 6 comments »

I have finally started on the marimba. I am following the plans I got from makeamarimba.com. They are a good plans although some times you have to translate from oz to usa english. I did a lot of searching on line on commercial marimbas and settled on padauk for the keyboard and cherry for the frame. The preferred wood for concert keyboards is rosewood. I called my hardwood supplier to get a price on rosewood when I was able to breath again I decided padauk was a good keyboard wood (most...

Shop stuff #63: Coffee table Pt 4

11-14-2016 07:45 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, a coffee table needs legs right? In this one I make up the slabs for the legs of the coffee table. Lots of cutting and milling and work with the hand plane. In the end I have 2 nice blanks to be used for the legs of the table. I experimented with a new intro and outro and getting some different angles on some shots. I also kept it under 20 minutes. Makes more episodes I suppose. View on YouTube

How I Do Hand Plane Rehabs #1: Breakdown and Evaluation

11-11-2016 07:03 PM by HokieKen | 3 comments »

I’ve been thinking I am going to do this blog but haven’t had just the “right” plane to document the process… until now. I know there are an abundance of these tutorials all over the internet so I don’t pretend to be breaking any new ground here. I just know we all find our own little tricks and tips so I thought I’d show y’all how I do it and hopefully, there’s a useful tidbit in here for someone. Here are some good articles from wkf...

Building my Workbench #6: Do these sticks make my slab look flat?

11-10-2016 01:22 PM by HokieKen | 3 comments »

Oh dear… What is he doing? Is this the second entry in a single week? Yes, yes it is :-) I got a couple of free hours last night so decided to sneak in a little bench work. I decided I was going to flatten the slab I glued up over the weekend. But wait, aren’t you supposed to wait until the bench is done to flatten it? Well, yes. And I didn’t completely flatten it, that will be when I finish the build. But, my thinking is that this is the bulk of my top. Once I di...

Shop stuff #61: Coffee table pt. 2

11-02-2016 03:23 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

After lots of editing and cutting and experimenting with my editing software, I finally got part 2 done. Here I am getting the top roughed out some more and slowly bringing it into what I want. Hours and hours of work over several days. It does not seem like it when you watch a video. I have to point out that my power tools are not particularly quiet, I pull the volume back on those sections. I watch a lot of You Tube videos, and edit mine, using headphones, and getting your ears blasted...
