Flexing rod construction

04-04-2014 07:57 PM by Zeiler | 3 comments »

instead of putting tension on the arm itself, the Davinci catapult uses the flexibility of two wooden pilars called flex rods. I will used the mortise machine to create the cradle for them then I will attach them directly to the catapult.

I'm Back!!!

06-07-2012 12:50 PM by Woodworker_Collins | 7 comments »

I have been away recently because I have been so busy on projects lately but I am going to post them right now. The projects are an end grain cutting board made for mahogany and oak, a small stool made entirely from hand tools and a new and improved chisel and screwdriver rack (at least compared to my old one) using my kreg jig i got for my birthday and a great way to store wood in a shed workshop without putting up shelves or losing floor space.

Rockin' Ride #2: Comments and Suggestions

01-14-2009 02:51 AM by kshipp | 0 comments »

Refers to project posted here. After my initial blog post I got some good suggestions and questions in the comments so I thought I would address those in a blog here. LesB said he thought the rear leg would need more bracing. My dad and I were discussing what we thought the weak point would be and we both also thought it would be the rear leg. I’m using the Kreg Pocket Screw system to assemble this piece and I have four screws from the leg to the seat and two screws from the cross...

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...

01-24-2010 06:11 PM by JSN | 8 comments »

Hi folks I’m totally new to this site and still not quite sure where to posts news. This one is about my future outfeed table and I’ve only now finished the sketchup for it. Still have small problem with it and I’m definitely curious about your comments beore I go further. As I explained in my intro, I’m in the process of setting up my shop and it’ll be very close to what’s shown in a FineWoodworking article by Matthew Teague titled : “Smart sho...

Board Game Travel Case #5: Back to the drawing board, again.

09-03-2011 09:58 AM by ChadR | 5 comments »

Well I had to go back and re design the case once again. I got a comment from Mark Shymanski asking if the boards to these games fit in the case. I of course went and got my board games to test the fit out and realized that a few of them where a bit larger then the case. I had originally designed the case to have enough space between the closed drawers and the sliding front to fit large boards. But in the process of making the case I forgot about this detail. I decided I would go back and ...

08-06-2012 01:34 PM by Ethan Harris | 0 comments »

Find this and more at Pallet Craft! Hello Readers! Well everyone goes through a learning period when figuring out what can and can’t be done, and how you should and should not go about things. Here are a couple of my latest “woops” and “oh…” moments as a beginner at woodworking. 1. The wooden vice. I thought this would be a great idea and it seemed to work well in pre-applied testing. Unfortunately the threads are too few, and the wood I used for t...

Pine root. Making use of a wasted material in a novel item.

01-14-2012 09:38 AM by Sman | 3 comments »

So around here there are numerous old stumps that look old and weathered, had one on the corner of my property so I cut it up for turning stock. It was very pitchy and sticky and def. not ideal wood for much. but after making a small dish from a nice swirly root clump I noticed the fine intricate grain and subtle orange translucence. So I made several small lampshade prototypes. Pitch bled out of the wood with warmer bulbs obviously. But I am about to start a kickstarter.com project involv...
