well unfortunately i will not be able to have the table saw station that i was hoping for but a router table is something i need so i am making one on the side of my table saw. i started by cutting down all the MDF with my cousin pat’s (Anthrax) help. then i started putting the torsion box together. it is all based on where the bolts are for my table saw and in the center fitted for the rockler plate that i am planning on getting in the future just i don’t have the money now. so h...
Well, being a trusting sort, I started working through the plan as dimensioned. The first parts went together really well( these being the top, bottom and back). Then the time came for adding the molding around the front and sides. I soon discovered that the pieces were not lining up right as they should according to the diemensions and the pictures. And to top it off the boss was getting angry at me cause I was spending time doing that instead of getting ready for vacation…sigh. ...
Hey Everyone, In this episode of the Teen Age Woodworker i will show how i made the square ebony inlay in my hickory picture frames. ! I found this to be an inlay that i was intimidated with in the beginning but turned out to be a really simple inlay to do that anyone can do with a drill and a chisel to get a nice tight fitting inlay. it took so long to get this video out because i was planning another inlay but that project never worked out. so i hope that you enjoy it! Well ...
i figured that i would start up just a little blog for my shop updates. instead of having a different one for each of the things that i make for my shop i will have one blog and blog about all of them. it may not always be consistent like i am putting in plans for my tablesaw station now but i might not start it for another month and might blog about something else in between but whatever. so now on to my plans for my table saw station. so here is the overall view here is the top. i...
I’m thinking about building a dog cart for my two overly energetic best friends. They are both over a hundred pounds. I’ve heard it is a very good way to get them the exercise they need and from reading many dogs really enjoy it. However I have only been able to find plans for modifying wagons or making them of PVC. I know dog carts have been around for centuries. I have just not had any luck looking for plans. Any help would be appreciated
Who among you has worked with boy scouts on the Woodworking Merit Badge?I’m looking for advice, counsel and how-to as my woodworking neighbor and I work with a small group of younger boy scouts to help them earn the merit badge. These boys will be 11 years old to 15 years old.I’m most interested in these things:—How did/do you organize the merit badge work, all in a single session of X hours OR in two or more sessions?—How do you determine which tools and which project...
Well the frame is finally done and its time for the best part the finish ;) so i started off as usual with a fresh frame sanded to 180 my first 3 coats were General Finishes Natural Danish oil and this really brings out all this hickory’s got. i think that this is a prime example of how as Charles Neil stated in his video that the colors that really bring out the wood are the ambers and the yellows (not the exact statement but in the ball park) and i think this is a golden exa...
I have a server in my basement hooked-up to the television, and a wireless keyboard and mouse I use on a coffee table when I need to access it directly. I get tired of looking at the PC bits sitting on the table and leaning-over to use them, so I’ve decided to build a lift coffee table to hide the parts and bring them closer to me when I need them. I took the following design from a book I have, but modified it for a different lifting mechanism and some general dimension changes (alon...
I’ve made a few minor changes to the deck plan. We should start building it next week.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~You may notice that I learned to apply the plan to image a lot better. Practice! practice! The corner support pipe also looks much better with a darker paint. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I modified the stair railing. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I added th...
I have now a deep loathing for Sketchup.I managed to get a representation of my requirements by starting at 4:30 Am today and working the sketch up product to get a couple of renderings That my new framer can follow.This guy seems reasonable and we should be on the site by Monday and done his part by Friday.You can’t imagine the number of tiny stickies that crop up doing a job like this. It might as well be an apartment block.At any rate to keep you posted, this is the reference that ...
