Mallets Made in Mexico

01-14-2012 04:44 AM by Omegacool | 3 comments »

Para golpear mis formones utilizo desde un simple pedazo de madera, martillo, mazo de metal o de hule, pero ahora comencé a hacer un mazo de madera de una pagina de planos gratuitos, y tenia la idea de hacer tambien un pequeño mazo de talla. Caminando por el mercado encontre un puesto de artesanias y tenian unos apachurradores y dije “es igualito” entonces los compre. Me falta terminar el mazo grande y darle un acabado a los pequeños.

Layered epoxy inlay #8: Colored Epoxy

01-13-2012 06:05 PM by JoeyG | 10 comments »

My epoxy samples have had time to fully cure. I am not really surprised by the findings. Here they are: First I took a chisel just to test the epoxy. The pencil and glitter where very hard and chipped away. The alcohol was rubbery when I put chisel to it. Next you will see them after I sanded with 80 grit on my ROS. As the chisel test suggested the pencil and glitter sanded up perfectly. The alcohol test was soft, rubbery, gummy. It was worse than the acrylic paint. Now I di...

House number

01-12-2012 06:32 AM by Ahad | 2 comments »

I am just starting to educate myself and learn about woodworking. This house number (can you guess the numbers?) is my first project. It is done with using a coping saw and a sander. I do not have much tools yet. It is not finished yet, I probably need to either stain or paint it before hanging it outside (is it worth it?, please, tell me honestly). Any advises, suggestions, and criticism are welcome.

Speed Woodworking #1: Simple Toy Box with Wheels

01-11-2012 03:53 PM by Peter Alkema | 2 comments »

I have recently been taking video of my projects as I complete them. With twins I usually make two of everything so the first one gives me practice and I can do a complete run through the second time, with the camera rolling. I’ll add some of these as I finish them – most are speeded up around 5x normal, but it gives a quick overview of completing the project in a couple of minutes. Here is the link, any comments welcome….. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PFtbonMXmE&feat...

Hand tool revalations #2: Stanley No. 48, new to me

01-11-2012 05:25 AM by Andrew | 6 comments »

The top, I decided to assemble this with tongue and groove joinery, I have a Stanley 48, this is the plane that started the madness.it has 2 cutters, and a pivoting fence. With the fence one direction it cuts a groove, swing it 180 degrees and it cuts the tongue. The plane will center on 7/8” thicknessed wood, but one tip… make a decision, either the fence is always on the face of the peice or the back, and stick with it. If you flip back and forth, it will cause the face of y...

Fix and repaint table… Retro style

01-10-2012 01:03 PM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

Sisters table has broken legs. It is a shame really as it is pretty old table and still pretty good nick. After looking at it best we can do is glue and the try and brace the base a bit more. Now big sis wants to sand whole table back and redo just to spruce up. Now we all love wood, but her house has heaps of natural wood showing and with the table, it actually becomes to much so she is thinking of … eeeek painting it. (shock horror I know, but I actually on this occasion agree with her, ...

Boat Cradle #1: Strip Boat Cradle

01-09-2012 03:52 AM by JayVT | 1 comment »

The plans for this project are available in a book titled “The Expectant Father’s Cradle Boat Book”.This first picture is of the forms after they were all cut out and mounted to a base.The going is slow only a few inches at a time. The epoxy needs to harden then a few more inches.We covered the edge of the forms with duct tape to keep the strips from sticking to the forms.I also used wax paper to keep the clamps from sticking to the epoxy covered strips.I had to work fast so...

dresser help... #1: need help with drawers

01-08-2012 07:43 PM by jaylost | 5 comments »

So here is my problem, I made the dresser and ran out of wood. So I am rethinking how to make the drawers, I made one from 3/4 oak ply but you can see the plys, not very attractive. So Im thinking about putting some sort of banding around the top to cover that. Next when i made it I just used a simple butt joint with 3 1 5/8’’ screws in each join and titebond II. Im not quit sure if that will be strong enough to with stand the test of time. Another question, what is the best way...

Hand tool revalations #1: the revolution has begun

01-08-2012 03:27 AM by Andrew | 4 comments »

It all started with the purchase of a stanley #48, the tongue and groove plane. I saw it on Roy Underhills show the WoodWright. So it is really his fault. Anyway I have slowly and sometimes quickly started accumulating hand tools. So now its time to use them, I chose to make a table out of Pine for a friend. Pine is soft and should be fairly forgiving of mistakes or improper techniques. This is only the beginning, I figure if I can get comfortable with the hand tools, then future pro...

Bi-Plane Toy #1: Fun For My Son

01-07-2012 05:09 AM by JayVT | 0 comments »

Found a great little set of plans on line for this little bi-plane. http://www.craftsmanspace.com/free-projects/biplane-kids-toy-plan.htmlThey are very detailed and had drawings for all the pieces. I simply placedthem on a computer and sized them accordingly and I was all set. I used some pine and some old pallet wood I had kicking around. The darker wood was from an old pallet which I salvaged from my print shop. Someone told me it was swamp wood but being a novice at this I really have no i...
