Exhaust Heat Shield (toy trucks) drilling indexing jig

11-02-2018 02:45 PM by LittleBlackDuck | 9 comments »

Boys and Girls, Haven’t posted for a while other than make annoying comments to others’ posts. Thought I’d slip in this quickie little blog to give you guys a chance to reciprocate. I was besotted by J’1974’s build of one of his models using a “perforated” exhaust heat shield. He even went to the trouble of writing up a blog. With my failing eyesight bolstered by ill fitting glasses, I contemplated that there must be an easier way to do it ...

Wooden Shackles #4: Accents Not Going as Planned

10-03-2018 12:55 AM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

So I had a thought (this is normally where my projects go wrong) and wondered if I could put some nice accents on my shackles like the real woodworkers do. Maybe some peg caps, or at least fake ones that make it look like less bland. I bought a selection of plug cutting bits and tried the 3/8” one to make small circles. I used a 3/8” inch forsner bit to make the holes … The problem came when I discovered the 3/8” plug cutter doesn’t in fact cut 3/8” ...

Wooden Shackles #3: Production and Practice

09-30-2018 01:28 AM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

So I decided to move forward with the styles and designs I’ve made up so far, stained them and I’m letting them dry at the moment. I chose to experiment and stain one set with PVC primer which is purple, I was surprised how well it worked! As a choice to try and do something a little more complicated I drew out a rounded set and cut them on the bandsaw, a tool I was always nervous about. But after sanding and tinkering I’m happy with the result. The plan...

Coffee Table With Storage For Puzzles And Board Games

09-14-2018 02:48 AM by wrenchhead | 3 comments »

I built this coffee table for my wife. She likes to put together puzzles and usually takes over the dining room table for a week or so. Now she can take the top off the coffee table, work on the puzzle for a while and put the lid on until she has time to come back to it. I made the table out of poplar and used General Finishes Java gel stain and Arm-R-Seal to finish it up. I am pretty happy with the results although I might buff out the top with steel wool in a couple weeks after it fully har...

Guitar Pedalboard Build

08-09-2018 12:51 AM by wrenchhead | 2 comments »

I made this homemade guitar pedalboard to clean up the cables and effects pedals I have. This was a fun woodworking project that only took a few hours over the weekend to complete. I used sapele wood and dovetail joinery to make this board. I installed a power inlet and a couple of 1/4” jacks to help with cord and cable management. I used General finishes Arm-R-Seal for a durable finish and added a .250 rubber feet so the pedal board doesn’t slide around. Thanks for watching ht...

Gift Projects #2: Making Cutting Boards Out Of a Single Peice of Solid Wood

05-17-2018 06:05 PM by ScottBelleri | 0 comments »

I made these paddle-style cutting boards out of solid 6/4” maple. This is thick enough that they shouldn’t warp, and they can be sanded down a number of times. It is called a paddle-style cutting board because its handle makes it look a bit like a paddle. The handle makes it easy to carry and hang, and also gives it a unique character. Sugar maple is an ideal wood for cutting boards because it is hard, but not so hard that it will dull your knives. Really, the only import...

Coffee table #1: Some pics of my daughters coffee table

05-13-2018 12:47 AM by icemanhank | 10 comments »

Hi all, I was asked by daughter #2 to build a coffee table of her and her partners design. I had some Tasmanian Blackwood floating around in the shed which I thought would be nice for the frame and had some beautiful 1/4 sawn tasmanian Oak at the wood club that was free (old church pews) which I thought I could use for the top. Although the original intension was a live edge piece. This can be changed easily at a later time if she still wants the slab top. The Oak for the top, while ...
