Workbench #1: SketchUp of Proposed Bench Top

02-27-2011 05:47 AM by Chris Moellering | 5 comments »

Trying to learn SketchUp is no trite task! I’ve used a few other design packages in the past, but this one just works a bit different. Still trying to get used to it. That being said, here’s some shots of what I think the top to my portable workbench is going to look like. The top will be constructed entirely of 3/4” plywood. It may not be obvious form the pictures, but the cross cut channel has a piece to form a lip on each side of it and the “cover̶...

Gramaphone Restoration Project #2: Figuring Out What I Can Salvage

02-26-2011 01:26 AM by Robster40 | 1 comment »

I finally stripped the old Gramophone cabinet down to it’s bare parts. I measured and threw away whatever wasn’t usable due to extensive water damage. I was surprised at how much of the most important parts were still in decent condition. Now I have the fun stage of sanding off all the old varnish and prepping the leftover parts so I can put it back together with some replaced parts. It’s nice because the project seemed so much more difficult at first glance but has, in f...

My new hobby #2: Planning for handcut dovetails

02-25-2011 10:00 PM by DanClem | 5 comments »

OK, so I decided for the planter box project I’m going to try my hand at hand cut dovetails or box joints to join the corners of each box. I’ve found some good tools, a dovetail saw, coping saw, chisels, mallet, planer and a compass. All I need now is some scrap wood to practice on. The only thing I lack is the marking gauge, and I’m wondering if it’s even necessary? I know there must be a ratio between how deep the cuts need to be and the thickness of the board bu...

My new hobby #1: Getting started

02-25-2011 09:34 AM by DanClem | 12 comments »

Good day to all who have chosen to turn a listening ear my way. I am a full time student and stay at home dad here in the great state of NC, who has found a new and exciting hobby in woodworking. I have always been fascinated and intrigued by what people could do with and to wood and now I’ve decided, with the blessing of the love of my life, to delve into the world of custom woodwork. To start this foray into the unknown, and grease the wife gears a little, my first project is goi...

Woodwork Biz/Getting Started #6: Item 4 and 5 - Using Postcards

02-25-2011 01:43 AM by billb | 3 comments »

There are many more ways to create postcards now because of the computer and easy to use graphic software. Most inkjet printers will do a great job with postcards, and you can purchase blank cards inexpensively, the problem is the high cost of ink. I suggest making a few with your printer to get an idea of the per card cost. If it does work out too high, you can create an original and take it to a quick print shop to have a quantity of them made. You may be able to go to one of those self pri...

work bench #6: How tall is your work bench?

02-23-2011 11:07 PM by gpastor | 11 comments »

This is the height of my old workbench 33”. For me it was to low unless I was doing something like hand planing then it was fine. What make a good work bench height? I considered a few things:1- What was I going to do most on the bench. For me that was not hand planning 2- How tall I am. At 6’-1” a 33” top is low 3- My eye sight. A high bench brought the work closer to my eyes 4- Will I be standing or sitting. I am on me feet all day at work, so on the weekends when I am...

Half-lap joinery for a Painters Easel.

02-20-2011 08:44 AM by degoose | 13 comments »

The easel was made from recycled silky oak….using half-lap joinery as seen here. Half- lap is where material is remove to half the depth of each piece and then fitted together… I used my new SCMS and set the depth on the micro adjustment screw.. fairly quick… and I was able to make the angled scarfs easily enough… I used a spacer to move the timber away from the fence so I could get the cut right across. I used glue and clamps.. then dri...
