I put this in a forum a few days ago and wanted to add it here for everyone. I am on the mailing list for a local auction company that specialises in estate auctions. They have a sale comeing up on Oct 31st and Nov 7th that has at least 9 Shopsmiths in it. They will be selling at least 3 of the Shopsmiths on the Oct 31st day and the rest on Nov 7th. Here is a link for pics of the sale items. http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewPicture&friendID=423752127&...
you asked , so here is the way to do this ..to start this ” cut and switch ” proses ,figure out your width of stock , by laying out your circle , and deviding it into as many ’ pie pieces ’ as you like , and as many concentric circles as you want .at the edje of the inner circle , measure the width of the ’ pie crust ’ , and rip your wood wider than this ,as it needs to be cut later to final size .and make somewhat longer for the same reason ..this is a sl...
Yo whats up everybody I have said for about the last 3 weeks that I am working on a big project. I am building a book case for the saw dust chronicles 60 day build challenge.Now you have to donate your project to charity or help the enviromant. I am building a book case out of oak. I am using a total of about 45 board ft. It is going to FDNY Ladder 120 and Engine 231 in Brownsville, Brooklyn. My cousin was working on ladder 20 on 9/11 and died thats why I have the text box on my website about...
Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...
A couple of days ago I decided it was time to build a rack to organize my nuts, bolts, screws, washers and other fasteners. I don’t know how I got so many but man, they are everywhere. As I sort thru them I am listing them and anything else I either don’t need, use or have more than one of on ebay. So far I’ve listed over 75 items I think and still have more to go. A couple of items are either rare or expensive like a Starrett calibrated master square set (http://cgi.ebay.co...
Ok – so as most of you know I have picked up the woodworking bug, and a big thanks to a special someone – I have recently grown with power tools! I love the tools and the more I get the more I woodwork… it has become a nightly thing that I enjoy. Until last night! So here is how the night went:I left work around 8… Stop at the local Home Depot – needed glue, and something to clean the stainer off my favorite paint brush – any suggestions? I almost bou...
<div> Click To Play </div> In this episode I talk about the 5 most used tools in my shop and why they are used so much. I talk about the saying by your last tool first and how it doesnt make any sense.
Great deal at Home Depot! If you are thinking of getting something like the DeWalt DW735 13” planer or any other expensive power tools, now is the time! All power tool accessories are also included! http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ContentView?pn=PM_TH_Ultimate_Power_Deal&langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053
The desk is finally finished. My niece wants to stain and poly it herself so I’m done with it at this point. Back up to any of the other blogs for background info on this build. The second picture shows the drawer open and the keyboard tray extended after the front cover is pulled down. A magnetic latch holds it in a closed position. Next build: believe it or not, a pellet stove box to hold stove pellets, made to look like a couch end table. Hmm.
Can I put pics in the blog? I’d like to share my project with you guys, but it would be better if you can see it. Let me know please.We were given an overflowing truckload of scrap hardwood a fellow woodworker who was moving to south america. A lot of it was t and g floor cut offs and most of the ironwood planks were stained half way down the length and most all of it was stock rejected due to imperfections. So I thought it was a great opportunity to hone my joinery skills and do someth...
