Around the Shop #8: Grinder Stand, with 'plans'

04-27-2015 04:50 AM by Mosquito | 11 comments »

So along with several other LumberJocks, I got an 8” Slow Speed Grinder recently (last week). This weekend I decided to spend some time to make a stand for it. It only took me about an hour to build this, and I only used a pair of 2×4’s and a piece of 12” x 18” 3/4” plywood (and some screws)  I also have a rough set of ‘planes’ that I made for it as well. Was pretty simple to do. Unfortunately, the camera was being less than coo...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #68: Should I quit or not

04-24-2015 05:44 PM by jerrells | 8 comments »

OK, I am at the frustration times 10 level. It seems like for the past six months of so NO ONE wants to purchase anything from me. When I started, about five years ago, it seemed that I was getting an order or two per week. Now it seems that I have to wait for the fall craft shows and hope I find a few good ones. I have looked and the list of items I make and gone over it LOTS of times. I keep changing too much depending on how the wind is blowing. I have really settled on three of four ty...

A non-plywood 4 drawer filing cabinet #4: The reveal

04-13-2015 07:35 AM by GCM | 5 comments »

The finished project: The finish on this project is shop made country/shabby chic using chalk paint made from cheap flat ceiling paint tinted with even cheaper poster paints, mixed with not-so-cheap calcium carbonate, and shop made finishing past wax made from a chunk of bees wax and boiled linseed oil. One coat of Ivory chalk paint, 2 coats of Cyan chalk paint (first coat epic fail due to miscalculation of amount required), and 2 coats of finishing wax after sanding and distressing. ...

Jigs and Tools #1: A One-Handed Clamp with a Deep Reach

04-04-2015 10:15 PM by GnarlyErik | 2 comments »

Another Lumberjocker asked for plans for my One-Handed Clamp (Picture #1). So far as I know this type of specialty clamp was originally devised for building lapstrake boats. In lapstrake boats the laps are clamped together for riveting which requires reaching across the full width of the new plank with the clamp. But this clamp also comes in handy at times for other deep-reaching, and/or one-handed clamping needs. I decided to publish a copy of my patterns here for anyone who needs them. ...

Basement to a REAL Basement Shop #2: Dust Collection

04-03-2015 04:44 PM by JAY Made | 2 comments »

Wow! It has been a very busy couple of weeks. Last year I purchased the 2hp Harborfreight dust collector. I knew I was not going to use it in it’s stock configuration, I knew I wanted to set it up like Jay Bates did. So when I first got the DC I crammed it in a spot out of the way, to the right of the DC was the chimney, to the left was a bunch of Junk. I moved it to the NW corner of the basement. The blower is mounted on top of the factory ring and is exsausted to t...

Thorsen House Cabinet #7: Putting it to the wood!

03-27-2015 05:33 PM by EläväPuu | 0 comments »

Hi everyone! I’ve been somewhat out of radio contact due to pressing work for my degree and working on a business startup…. Between then (when was the last post?) and now, the entire piece was constructed in Solidworks, had the bugs refined out (mostly avoiding work overcomplication and basic logistics), ripped apart and reconstructed. Very little has changed from the original dimensions and layout. The recipient of the largest changes were the doors in terms of the muntin/mull...
