Church Lectern #2: This is what I was thinking of....

03-26-2008 02:02 PM by pashley | 8 comments »

I did these “sketches” in Bryce to get an idea for proportions. I like what happened here. Problem is, in this sketch, the 4 main posts are 44 inches high, and my real life ones are 33, which is really the best height. However, I made the 3 raised panels to the specs in the drawing – 33” tall by 30” wide – way too big. The thing is way too big, when I tried to visualize it by laying out the posts and panels. Looks like I’ll have to take a good 8 inche...

New saw

08-24-2009 10:26 PM by kosta | 11 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I just bought a skil 10 in 15 amp table saw from lowes and it will probably be at my house by friday. It comes with a stand and I will do a table saw setup video when I get it. I compared this one to the ryobi and what really stood out was 2 things it has more power and it also has a dust port. This week I have spent about 5 hours total cleaning up the shop and I made a dust port for my miter saw basically what I did was I put a small piece of wood on the back part of th...

12-11-2010 02:34 AM by Dennis Zongker | 20 comments »

Design Drawings Completed, For a Music Box Finally finished with the design drawings for a 72 note movement, Music Box. It took me approximately 60 hours to come up with this design. Next is the working drawings, then it’s fun time, the woodworking part. The top marquetry will be a good challenge for me, but I’m really looking forward to it. On the front of the box is a Lyre Harp. Carved out of solid ebony. The foot design is a segmented turning with Maple and 8 Ebony pin st...

Back to the drawing board...

07-21-2014 07:39 AM by ajw1978 | 4 comments »

Well, I just finished cleaning, packing up and moving my “shop” back into the closet. (Seriously … I need a garage soon). I’ve spent the last week sawing, sanding, screwing (heh heh heh) and swearing and the result is: 1) A poorly-crafted and sloppily-stained gift box2) Two poor-fitting window screens3) A shop vac full of saw dust4) Many, many, many pieces of scrap lumber But, in an effort to keep a positive attitude despite my grade-school-shop-class level of ab...

What type of building do I need for a good sized cabinet shop.

05-16-2010 11:54 PM by Dustin | 16 comments »

I need your help if your a cabinet maker. What size building should I have for a three man cabinet shop? We do traditional face frame cabinetry currently but our current shop is way too small to be very functional. Also, should I build a steel or stick built building? What are the pro’s and con’s with each? Is there anywhere where I can get floor layouts? Maybe even building plans? Anything helps! Thanks!

Drum/Disc Sander #1: Help / Input request - Speeds for Drum & Disc Sander I plan to build.

04-18-2012 09:07 PM by Kevin May | 1 comment »

Jocks, I need your help with determining the Drum diameter for a sander I plan to build. (see earlier post for image). The issue is that I have two options (sizes of steel tubing I have) for the diameter of the drum, either 4-1/2” or 6-5/8”. The design of my Drum/Disc sander has both the drum and the disc mounted on the same shaft. This allows me to drive both with a single 2HP, 1725rpm motor I have. The primary decision I am faced with is which size drum to build. The...

Structural Crack Filling

08-24-2009 11:35 PM by Ancientwood | 4 comments »

Ancientwood has developed a technique for filling large, structural cracks, sometimes found in Ancient Kauri slabs. This is a step-by-step approach for creating a flat surface with beautiful patterns and design. 1. The slab must first be flattened. This can be done with a drum sander, planer or a CNC router.2. After the slab is flat, locate cracks that need filling.3. Fill any hairline cracks with color-matched latex putty. Wet the adjacent area of the Ancient Kauri with spirits to get an a...
