In this episode I start working on 4 bookends. After all the parts are jointed I laminate 2 blocks together to make a 3 in thick letter for each book end. Then I cut out the letters on the scroll saw.
After drawing the plans, I went to the store to purchase the lumber to build the storage box. Had to make a few substitutions due to the price of lumber here in England. Instead of using ply, I settled for MDF. Still quite expensive but nothing near the price of ply or pine. Anyway, I will post pictures of the work in progress.
Wow! It has been a very busy couple of weeks. Last year I purchased the 2hp Harborfreight dust collector. I knew I was not going to use it in it’s stock configuration, I knew I wanted to set it up like Jay Bates did. So when I first got the DC I crammed it in a spot out of the way, to the right of the DC was the chimney, to the left was a bunch of Junk. I moved it to the NW corner of the basement. The blower is mounted on top of the factory ring and is exsausted to t...
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...
If you have been following along, I have been working on building out my shop (tools, equipment and such). The past two weeks have been eventful, for certain. New tools and equipment: Porter Cable Floor Mounted Drill PressHitachi 12” Compound Slider Miter SawMisc. Hand tools and accessories I will write up and post Tool Reviews on both of these, after I’ve used them for 30 days or so. Below is the brief walk-through. Hitachi (a few weeks ago) lowered the price of their...
hey everyone, just got a commission from the club that i am in for school to build a money box for when we have bake sales and other various sales. I am planning on making it out of Jatoba because thats what i have around right now. i am planning on dying it up and everything too. so first i started by milling the lumber down to a little under 3/8” and a little over 5/16ths. i am using such thin material so i could get as much lumber out of my lumber. i resawed the rough boards on ...
Those few of you that follow my mere attempts to be a wood worker will know I have fun doing it no matter how the project turns out. Whether it works out great or an failed attempt. Or whether it is a biggish project like the coffin or a small one like the cribbage board. Having the right tools for the job can make things so much easier, yes I will agree with that statement. However as we all know you don’t always have the right tool or all the tools you require or want to have in yo...
As I have been away at college, this is the first chance I’ve had to organize and set up the new shop. So, here are several shop projects completed over the past few days. First up, the clamp rack. As all of us are aware, we couldn’t be woodworkers without several clamps. The problem is in finding the best way for each of us to organize them. Here is my version: Next is just an organizational item made out of a re-purposed kitchen cabinet. Just a place...
I came across this cool angle fixture as they are characterizing it but it has far more potential than just this; I see it as an angle tool for all sorts of applications. At the very least I hope it is inspiring to others.http://airfieldmodels.com/information_source/how_to_articles_for_model_builders/tools/magnetic_building_board/variable_angle_fixtures.htm
