The Bar #1: The Bar to man cave

11-29-2014 09:58 AM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

11 months ago it was decided we would have new years on our new deck that was only built a month before. So we decided on the spur of the moment to build a bar From there the bar seems to have taken on a life of its own. It no longer an out door bar, it is fully enclosed and water proofed... which in it self was a challenge once was water proofed we got power added so the bar fridge and TV, lights and accessories. The french doors we made at my work and got them installed once they went up...

Rediscovering Woodworking #2: Adding a multi-purpose Machine to our limited space

11-21-2014 04:28 AM by revrok | 1 comment »

I am keeping this entry brief as I am a bit limited on time. I have heard many critiques of the Shopsmith over the years. I have always found it to be an ingenious woodworking tool for someone with very limited space. The tablesaw has it’s issues, which have been talked about in a million forums, but I have a tablesaw that I am happy with, what I do not have nor have space for is power sanding, a bandsaw, a lathe and a drillpress. The primary strengths of a Shopsmith in my situation ...

It has been over 2 years since I sold everything and ventured off in other directions. This past Friday, I finally got back in the game. I picked up a sweet Nova 3000 DVR lathe!!!! I am still unpacking, and figuring out what all is included. Have a bunch of duplicate items listed on eBay. Sorby Tools, Oneway Chucks, and will be listing some Kelton Hollowing Tools. Hopefully, I will have some actually work to post in the next couple weeks!!!! I can’t wait to turn a perfectly good piece o...

My entry into the Christmas Ornament Challenge

11-16-2014 04:58 AM by cpine | 4 comments »

This is my entry into the Christmas Ornament Challenge put on by Alan Stratton and Carl Jacobson. This is the third annual challenge and I ma amazed at the beautiful ornaments folks have made! This idea came to me as I have made toys quit a bit in the past and I thought just make a version of an airplane that is smaller. Proportions were determined mostly on the fly and are just approximations of what should look good. Much of what I did I had in my head and I made the first piece then fit ...

Repairing a hammer handle and refinishing a couple items

11-08-2014 05:02 AM by cpine | 0 comments »

It was one of those days where I was between projects and had several smaller things to get done. I had this older coffee table that really needed some attention nd the wife had placed it on our back porch. I guess she was tired of waiting for me to “get to it” So I refinished the top. I had an older cheap hammer that had a loose head, so I fixed that. I bought a yankee screwdriver at a garage sale and the handle was in bad shape. It is a wood handle and at first I thought about t...

What to do with miscellaneous tools, windsor chair templates, etc...

11-03-2014 02:58 PM by Cozwood2012 | 2 comments »

Kudos to 489TAD….I also find myself as the widow of a master period furniture maker and the daunting task of finding homes for a seemingly endless supply of tools, equipment and keepsakes. Any suggestions on a good forum for sales other than Craigslist or Ebay?????.I have Windsor chair and period furniture templates as well that would be an atrocity to just throw away. Located in Georgia…Thanks for any suggestions/help

Wheel loader T and J Cat 966 #2: Lathe work

10-26-2014 06:51 PM by Dutchy | 2 comments »

It is a time ago I started making the wheels for my T and J wheelloader. A long time I didn,t have time to work on it. But last week I restarted. First I drilled a hole in the wheel with a 50 mm (2”) bore and than turned the wheels as you can see on below picture: Now I could turn the wheel 180 degrees and do the other side: Turning work was done and now I had to do some testings for the groves. I made four wheels from oak and one from beech for the testing work. First I ma...
