Butterfly Dining Table #5: Split Top Sliding Assembly

11-24-2015 11:27 PM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

After the base assembly is complete, I start working on the sliding mechanism that will carry the split top. I use maple for some of the parts, and walnut for the slides that will be attached to the table top when I complete it. Although not very complex, it is a design that demands precision to work correctly. You Tube Link – As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To get updates of this build as I go along, please follow me on Inst...

How To: #1: Building a French Cleat Camera Mount

11-23-2015 05:49 AM by Mike | 0 comments »

After having some issues with camera placement in my shop while video taping I came up with a camera mount that I can place almost anywhere on my walls. Using a spare tripod and some hardware I developed a French Cleat Camera Mount. This video also includes the steps I took to develop the project and a demonstration of the camera on the mount. If you have questions or comments, I’d love to hear from you. View on YouTube

What to do with a slab of Walnut...

11-21-2015 12:10 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, I got four to mill down into …..something. Set up a plank on the bench, scibed a few lines. I wanted four pieces 3" wide, with whatever was left for other parts. I got four 18” long, and two @ 17” long. Two of the planks, including this one, are 5/4 stock. The other two are just 4/4 stuff. Had the circular saws in from the trunk of the van, and took the larger one down to the shop… I can keep it on the shelf until needed. Made a big mess on the...

Butterfly Dining Table #4: Base Details and Base Assembly

11-16-2015 12:16 AM by Guy Dunlap | 3 comments »

In this video, I show how I plan to use sliding dovetails for the mid span dividers, which also will house the sliding parts for the top, and then cut the sliding dovetails and make the dividers. Then I cut the slots in the end rails for the slides and glue up the end assemblies, which I might add was a grueling experience I hope I never put myself through again! I cut out the joinery for the lower rail that will connect the two curved rails and tie the whole thing together. It’s sta...

Thought I would share pics of the slab flattening machine I am constantly upgrading. Made from 80/20 extrusion, it’s basically a CNC minus the computer and motor drives. While it could be converted, I like to manually run the router, so I have control over the cut. Here’s the basic machine: Slabs are held down via a vacuum table. Super simple design using a shop vac and weatherstripping. The router is held steady on the track with linear bearings and a moun...

Shop stuff #11: 2 videos today

11-11-2015 12:51 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

The weather has been rather nice lately. So nice that I have been spending more time in the shop. Along with being out in the air with Sally and Lil’ Lee. I have had the camera in the shop too. Which of course means I have lots of video clips saved, and nothing published for a while. Well, it rained today, so I took some time to do some editing and catching up. We had to go to town so Lil ‘Lee could get her grooming done, but other than that, I have been sitting in front of ...

WoodShop Thoughts. #1: Freaking Drawers

11-07-2015 02:54 AM by Matt | 7 comments »

So as most of you know I finished my cabinet a few weeks ago save the drawers. Since my mother’s garage cabinets that some of you have seen, I have had an outright war with drawers. I cannot seem to get them right, ever. I have tried the expensive soft close all the way to the under and side mount white roller slidey ones. This time was no different. I bought those crappy white roller wheel sliders because they were cheap and I wanted to try something new (not to mention it was fo...

A Tote for tools.

11-04-2015 01:49 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Bought a 1×6 x 8’ pine board the other day. It does get a bit crowded in the shop when them longer boards show up.. Was still a bit shaky after bringing the board down the steps to the shop. It was in the back of the van, long walk, and a few turns to get it down here. My sliding bevel gauge is elsewhere, of course, so I brought out the spare. Good tape measure is with the good bevel gauge, so the tape I have will have to do. Set a length of around 30” or so. ...

Shop stuff #10: Saved from the fire

10-31-2015 12:41 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I finally got some editing done on a bunch of footage of working this piece of Maple that I rescued from the fire wood pile last year. It is going toward the box build I am working on. I have no real plan, just a vague idea and I am letting the wood take me it’s own way to get there.
