20 Steps to a Checker Board... a beginners guide

10-17-2009 04:57 AM by Demowen | 7 comments »

I am currently finishing an education class so that I can teach Technology Education (shop class). My last assignment was to create a project that checks for the understanding of the previous lessons. I chose to do my lessons on shop tool safety and usage so it only fits to do a project to show off those new safety skills. I know you all are experts here ;) so I thought you might enjoy picking this apart! I created a simple project that uses the majority of common shop power tools. Her...

Speakers

10-16-2009 04:29 AM by bunkie | 0 comments »

I’ve been building speakers for most of my life. It’s what led me into woodworking. Sadly, I don’t have a lot to show for it. I’ve either sold or given away every set I’ve ever built with only one exception, the set I’m currently running. Even worse, from a woodworking perspective, they’re pretty sad. Made entirely of MDF and finished with rattle-can stone finish paint, they aren’t pretty. I’m planning to rectify this situation. My next...

Router Table Insert - Done!

10-15-2009 05:33 AM by Jimi_C | 4 comments »

Here it is: And the view of the router from the bottom: You can see the clamp and depth adjustment knob are easily accessible, but if I wanted I could use a T-wrench to adjust the depth from the top of the table. I’m not too concerned about that, since with this Ryobi you need to release that clamp so you have to duck down under the table anyway. So, it works, well enough at least for what I need it to. I’m planning on using it to rout out the dadoes for the rai...

Learning to design #3: Next sketchup version - thanks DaveR!!!

10-01-2009 01:36 PM by mtkate | 11 comments »

Dave’s suggestions from my very first post on this gave me great ideas – and simply trying to replicate what he did was a fantastic learning experience. You can click on the image to get the whole thing. I was able to play with sketchup on my commute to work back and forth yesterday, and woke up early this AM to fix some errors I made. The key to success was making groups which I wasn’t doing before. I was very pleased when all the pieces finally fit together. M...

finishing with mineral spirits

09-27-2009 09:50 PM by kosta | 2 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I am working on a project now and I found something out today that really surprised me if you put a polyurethane down over top of a oil based finish then it is a really rough surface if you sand it but if you take a rag soaked with mineral spirits then it removed that rough coat and it seals the wood up really good.
