006: pallet wood cutting board #2: cuts and glue-ups

03-30-2010 11:02 AM by Gary Fixler | 3 comments »

I’ve renamed my 5 preexisting project series from “project: whatever” to “00n: whatever” where n is the number of the set of posts in order. E.g. instead of “project: a rolling base for my planer,” that was the second project series I made, so now it’s “002: a rolling base for my planer.” The projects were starting to scatter in my series list, and I’d have a few series listed at the top in the drop-down for new posts, then an ...

Turning #2: Last couple of lathey days

07-27-2011 05:08 AM by SSMDad | 2 comments »

The last 2 days have been “interesting” with turnings to so say the least. First I really accept that I don’t have a clue as to how to get the best sharpened edge on my tools. I used my bench grinder to sharpen and ended up cutting at least 2 different angle bevels on my roughing gouge. :( Yesterday I laminated then turned a stack of cherry and QS sycamore. I’d intended to make a lamp. Apparently the 5”x5” blocks I cut were not flat because now I hav...

machine restorations #1: Rockwell Beaver 3400 gap bed lathe

06-12-2012 03:42 PM by rasp | 2 comments »

I have been searching kijiji high and low for about a year now, looking for just the right deal. I found that deal about 2 weeks ago. 60km~ away from home, a nice relaxing cruise to Orillia. The fellow I bought this off was quite friendly. Sometimes walking into strangers homes can be unnerving. He showed me some things he made with the lathe over the years, one of which was a solid pine bed frame, very nicely turned in a rustic manner, stained red and painted black to give it that R...

Dutch Tool Chest #8: fall-front together and installed

04-13-2015 05:34 AM by Tugboater78 | 2 comments »

A quickie post I didn’t mention making the red Oak pieces to latch behind the lower lip of the cabinet before. These are just big enough to fit below the lower shelf . The article in the magazine mentions making these the full length to subdue expansion, but I have breadboard ends for that. I measured and marked where the batten guides need to go, with a brain fart or two. You will probably notice a few holes in a picture or two where I mounted them where they didnt need to be. ...

Well, went down to the shop this morning, removed the lid blank from the clamps…meh Needed a bit of saw work to square things up to the box.

Laid the box on the lid, drew some pencil lines. Bandsaw TRIED to follow the lines….need to work on the bandsaw later… Lid was a bit large for the...

tote for tools #6: Clamps came off, but the cussing remains

11-11-2015 05:59 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well. After letting the glue cure for a couple hours, went down to remove the clamps. Another fight broke out, as the longer clamps wanted to fall onto the floor, taking everything they could with them…..didn’t work. Clamped the case upside down to the bench, was going to level some edges.. Nice, thin shaving…..but, I wasn’t in the mood for things this slow. Got out the cambered Jack planes. Got the bottom almost leveled out, I figured I could install the b...

Balanced Work Bench #1: Building a Semi-Classic workbench without taking a 2nd out on your house

07-16-2013 05:32 PM by Jeremiah | 2 comments »

Here goes…. Traditional work benches (roubo for example) are out dated. I know, heresy. But it’s true The reason they made those crazy over sized legs and joints was because they didnt have sheetgoods back then and they needed to over build them to deal with the lateral and horizontal force they experienced. It is my opinion that pine 2×6’s and 3/4 ply MORE than cover any of the structural needs of a work bench. So the next big argument FOR traditional w...
