Build a Decorative Sled

11-26-2014 06:53 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

Making decorations is fun. Woodworking, welding, and smithing are also fun. This time I combine them all and create a decorative sled. This is a very simple project that will get plenty of years use. Check the video out, leave comments, and make sure to like and subscribe! Click here for video. Also, does anyone know where the old embed code went to? I can no longer see it on YouTube to embed the video here.

Hints and Tips #1: Finding nails in re-used wood

11-05-2014 08:16 PM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

[Legebla ankaĆ­ en Esperanto] When I first started collecting free wood from along the street, it occurred to me to protect my power tools by making sure as possible that all the nails were out of the boards. If memory serves, Norm Abram placed this idea in my head. I bought a down and dirty wand style metal detector to check out the wood as I clean it up. The one pictured cost less than $20, maybe about $10 really. I’m not sure. I bought it several years ago from that auction w...

Splitter from a shelf bracket

01-05-2014 08:55 PM by CueballRosendaul | 3 comments »

My new (to me) Unisaw didn’t come with any safety equipment, and I’ve been having trouble finding a splitter that I like, so I decided that until I find one I really like, I’ll just make one and add it to my new ZC throat plate. I laid in bed last night racking my brain over what material I might have that would be easy to work with and I remembered some old shelf brackets I wasn’t using. I popped the end cap off, cut the dog legs off, did most of the filing and shapin...

I got a Beall system a few years ago.I started with the 3 circular pads.I liked it so much I also got the 3 polishing balls to do inside bowls.I also got an old motor for $2.00 at a garage sale so I could have a dedicated polishing setup.The motor is plugged in to an outlet box under the end of the bench. The receptacle it’s plugged into is controlled by a switch also under the end of the bench. The other receptacle is unswitched for plugging the other equipment in when needed. The outl...

Air dried, Kiln dried, WD-40 dried! 6 hours instead of 6 months

09-16-2013 03:17 AM by Sanding2day | 3 comments »

It is stated right there on the can, “drives out moisture”... Well ok, have never heard of nor believe that this would not have been discovered and a mighty fine quick trick if there wasn’t a downside… But made you look :) Anyone know the effects of WD-40 on wood feel free to share… Certainly know that I have recently been putting plenty of it on wooden handles and the like while cleaning riveted metals etc. but wipe it off fairly quickly and have never...

Got some scrap wood and a railroad spike? Make a drawknife....

06-04-2013 05:05 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 4 comments »

Drawknives. They can be expensive or cheap. They are used by green woodworkers and chairmakers (for the spindles). You can use them for taking bark off trees as well. With only a $1 railroad spike and some scrap lumber you can make your own drawknife. Also view a different way of placing handles on your homemade tools tangs. It must be noted that I do not condone taking railroad spikes off of tracks. It is illegal and you can get in serious trouble for theft and/or killed by a big freaking ...
