Nice Ash Planes #4: From Big Ash log to Thick Ash lumber

357 days ago by rhett | 1 comment »

The load of ash logs made it safe and sound to McInturf Sawmill and Kiln. Here you see them staged for sawing and the ends treated with anchor seal. The ends are painted different colors for different species.The logs are then gathered with a front loader and brought to the saw. A large metal table, made from railroad track, holds the logs until they are ready to go. This sytem allows Gary to run the entire operation solo. Here we see an ash log being rolled down to the bed.As you can se...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #3: I made it on time today!!!!

1186 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

Hello All, Well I finally made it on time today, even though it meant we had to hurriedly eat at A&W tonight :-) Although I wasn’t as early as I had planned as when I got to the College I started driving up their steep (and as it turns out very very slippery drive way) where someone was letting off a passenger about halfway up (I thought this was kind of odd, why not just let them off at the top where the buildings are) so I stopped because I wasn’t sure if there was enou...

Guitar-building #3: Fretting the neck, routing the pocket

1121 days ago by kenstonge | 8 comments »

After three months of once-a-week woodworking, my Les Paul Jr. project is finally starting to look like a guitar. I spent the first hour of my class installing frets on the guitar’s neck, a process that involves fretwire, a fretting hammer, a few clamps, flush-trimming pliers, some CA glue and a file. The basic process is to cut the fretwire — which had been radiused to 10 inches — for each fret, leaving an extra quarter- to half-inch on either side. Cutting the fretwire Next, I c...

SAW CABINET #1: BUILDING MY TOY SAW A CABINET, OUTFEED TABLE, AND MORE

777 days ago by Metrotek | 3 comments »

Here are some more photos showing the progress of my saws cabinet. It fits perfectly where it’s supposed to then when I connect the outfeed table and Biesmeyer style fence to it there should be no problem with maintaining alignment.I think I’ll put about two feet out the back for the outfeed table not including the mounting/hinge area.

Blondie wondering where her wine is….. To those of you have been following and helping me thanks a million. Well, I finally finished our Walnut/ Granite outdoor table today. Just in time as my parents from Michigan will be here in Southern California Fri morning. Mom has been dying to see it, so the pressure was on. The finishing process was a long. I used Epifanes boat varnish from Holland. It takes 24 hours between coats although I found 48 hrs. to be better in between wet san...

1133 days ago by Brian024 | 6 comments »

Buildup of a small display cabinet I’m working on that will hold Riker boxes, holding that hold coins/buttons/medals. Really good weekend project and a good beginner project to.
