As mentioned in my Workbench Blog I was planning to replace the gents style handle on my 8” Crown Gents Dovetail Saw with a more suitable one. This will be more of a photo essay than anything but lets just say most the pics are of take 2 of this event lol. I am pretty happy with myself for getting the saw kerf cut free hand with nothing more than a scribe line and a HF flush cut saw :-) Sadly I was so “in the moment” that I forgot to take pics of the procedure. I hope ...
Last week in my video showing my first turning project I showed you a Pen Press I made to press the parts of a turned pen together. I asked if you wanted to see a Pen Press How to video and the overall response was yes. So here you go. This is a great little jig for pen turners and those of you who are wanting to venture into pen turning. I hope you enjoy it. Part 1 Part 2
This is the second part of my blog and in this blog I am going to talk about writing a business plan, and past mistake I have made in business. Now this is the third shop I have started and if I have learned anything it is this, to be successful you need a plan! There it is. Now the first two times I did not write a business plan, I did not write a marketing plan. Really all I did was run into a guy who knew a guy who had a building to rent and the next thing I knew I had a shop and a whol...

I’ll take you through the steps I used to build my router guide for my wood lathe. It is essentially a box with adjustable sides and top which has a slot to guide the router bushing. It is made from 5/8” plywood, clear Lexan, Steel and aluminum.I started with a 11.5×11.5 bottom and cut rabbets on both sides on the table saw and made a cut out for the tail stock. The sides were glued in place held square by a couple scrap blocks. They had T nuts installed for the adjustment ...
Basic 1/4 ” plywood.. mark a line at a diagonal across the board.NB. the sharper the angle the longer the piece that can be cut.Inset two bearings on this line 19” on centre to enable the use of the 9.5” Radius template from the first jig with single curve. Fit a bolt in the righthand bearing and fit to the bearing in the base unit.. turn on bandsaw and cut the curve till you reach the line and then change pivot points to the left hand side of both the jig and the base unit ...

Here are the instructions for making my style of the wine bottle balancer: 1. Cut pieces to size on the table saw: 3”x12” (3/4” stock). 2. Drill angle hole at 45 degrees, 3” from one end on the drill press with a 1 3/8” forstner bit. 3. Cut rounded top on band saw, jig saw, or scroll saw. 4. Round over edges on both sides of the board with a round-over bit on router table (this is optional, but it just makes for a more decorative look and...
Well, now that I’m fairly comfortable with the layout and construction of the cabinet it was time to tear things apart and get some actual measurements and formulate a material list and plan of attack (much easier to tear virtual cabinets apart!). After saving the Sketchup plan as another file I start removing unnecessary and duplicate items and start putting-in some dimensions. The pictures should show most if not all of the dimensions I used, but I can’t say for sure since I...
