New WoodWorking Bench #1: What plan would I use?

11-12-2010 07:08 AM by ray6576 | 5 comments »

I have spent about six months looking at various pictures, plans and ideas that other woodworkers used for their woodworking bench. I finally settled on a design that I saw in Popular Woodworking. I chose the 21st Century Woodworking bench.

Making a Violin #3: Sides, or 'Ribs' ~ Bending & Gluing

11-12-2010 01:24 AM by RonPeters | 7 comments »

Ok, I’m back… Had a bit of an issue with the bending iron. It seems it is rather delicate and putting it on high (10) is a no no. It’s a Watlow ‘Firerod’ embedded in the aluminum tower. The current flow at 10 apparently burns out the element? It requires about an hour to get to bending temperature – and had I read the sheet that it came with… It was repaired free of charge and henceforth I will be careful to mind the dial! Nothing past 5 from no...

I made a sign for a mate… GRIMA VIEW…. and a friend saw it… hey how much… told her and she thought it would be a great idea for me to make a sign …”Rabbit’s Bar.”.. to hang over the bar that I will be building.. so that is how you pick up a commission…For a bar I did not know I was building…Any way… here is the progress on the sign… I have not finished this.. as I intend to spray on some poly... Total build time so far...

First Cutting Board #1: Initial Design

11-08-2010 11:33 PM by Szczuldo | 5 comments »

Well, I have other projects that I “need” to do first but since I just bought a new saw (Grizzly G0715P, review to come after this weekend), i figure this should give me enough practice. I will be using some oak flooring I have left over from a room renovation and some walnut I purchased. Below is the proposed design. I want to keep it simple. As I have it here it is 330 mm x 465 mm x 38.1mm. Final planing will drop the height down of course. Therein lies the problem area. I do...

Hey. Someone wants me to take down there walnut tree. I got the time, a van, and a chainsaw. What I don’t have is help and a portable mill to take it down to size.

Tree is about 17 inches in diameter 2.5 stories tall. Located in Naperville. Tight quarters in backyard. Tree is near property line, fence and patio, and some ...

Building My Work Shop #6: Clamp Rack Sketch Up Design

11-02-2010 07:25 AM by Crushgroovin | 4 comments »

Got a very late start to the day so ended up taking up most of my time with the Clamp Rack Sketch Up Design. Tomorrow I will brave the rain to go out to the lumber pile outside and see how many 1×6’s I have out there. The design is basically to hold everything I might need for assembly: Clamps of all sorts, Glue, Tape, fasteners. I designed for use with Fir 1×3 & Birch Plywood, however any 1×3 and 3/4” & 5/8” sheet stock will work. I will be using M...

Making a Tumbling Block Cribbage Board

11-01-2010 10:44 PM by WoodMosaics | 22 comments »

I will start this blog the same way I started the one on making a Lazy Susan. Now before I get started on this little demonstration of how I do it, let me caution you on a couple things. IF you try anything like this, take the plate that your saw blade comes up through and close that hole completely up with a thin piece of wood. Make sure it is even with the top, with no gaps and no lips to catch the pieces. You want it smooth. Then with a “Hollow ground plywood blade” come up from the bot...

Building My Work Shop #5: The First Rule of Assembling a Project

11-01-2010 10:10 AM by Crushgroovin | 4 comments »

Caleb is only 8 but he has caught on quick to the woodworking. If you ask him what you need to build a woodshop he will say #1 Buy more Clamps #2 Buy more Clamps #3 if you think you have enough clamps you probably need to buy more clamps! So I have a few clamps, obviously no where near as many as I might need. Before I started re designing my shop I stores my clamps on and around a exterior door that isn’t used. Now they are stored where ever there is space. Obviously this isn...

Assembly Cart concept, design, and build #2: The Design and Intial Build

10-30-2010 08:15 PM by RandyMarine | 2 comments »

Greetings All, Well, as I said in the first part…I grabbed out my original sketches and they looked nothing like what I had in my mind now, but knew I wanted to incorporate some of my original ideas into the final design. So, I grabbed my DRY ERASE MARKER…and made a cardinal mistake. I rough sketched my final design (going completely crazy on details) on my large whiteboard. I Would have been fine, until my g/f erased the whiteboards a week later, not knowing I hadn’t c...

Bamboo #2

10-28-2010 01:12 AM by WoodArtbyJR | 5 comments »

Well, here are the steps that I accomplished to get to this point. I did run the cut strips thru the drum sander to clean them up a little and to take any imperfections out so the glue would hold better, at least that was the plan. I hope to take the clamps off tomorrow and maybe run it thru the drum sander to see if my design will hold true. Misc. bamboo pieces I have to work with Cut blanks to be cut into strips Cut strips Strips turned on edge Bundled edge pieces Hopefu...
