The Ultimate Vice Jaws

01-07-2017 10:46 PM by ShaunMeighan | 4 comments »

Hi all! I’ve recently made myself a set of jaws for my engineering vice to make it more usable for woodworking. These jaws increase the surface area contacting the workpiece and adds pieces of leather for extra grip. I’m very happy with how they turned out and would love to know what you think of them!

Wild Walnut - Pool Cue Case

12-23-2016 10:06 PM by smitty22 | 3 comments »

This is to blog a build of a pool cue case, requested by a friend who donated a chunk of old-old American black walnut, supposedly from a 150-year old barn in Oklahoma. Wood was 8/4 about 90”x10” and twisted, bowed, cupped, but we thought maybe salvageable for the cue case. Part 1 of this is the initial milling of the blank just to see if enough material will be left after resaw to 3/8”. Chunk 1 ready for truing up in the planer (no jointer here). Had to cut the orig...

Shop stuff #68: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 6

12-13-2016 09:40 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

In this segment I get the stretchers made and joined to the legs of the coffee table. I am still not accustomed to the new saws and will have to put more effort into my form. Never the less, the half lap dovetails come out OK. Except for one little repair that had to be made along the way. There will be more mistakes in upcoming videos, but they all get dealt with. As I was editing this I noticed I went from shorts and a T shirt to long pants and a pull over. The change in seasons is st...

Mistakes and fixes #1: My back traacking box

11-29-2016 03:17 PM by SouthernMNwoodart | 5 comments »

Made a lot of mistakes on this one, which caused me to learn a bunch of new tricks and fixes. Firstly, I shouldn’t have used crooked wood for the box sides. I knew what would happen. All the corners were bad of course. I cut them out! Then when I was doweling the new corners, they cracked. Just wanted to show my project that I love and hate and maybe hear some feedback, or other horror stories.

Shop stuff #65: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 5

11-28-2016 01:19 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Yes, it is a long series, and going to get longer…..lol. In this one we get the feet roughed out and some actual joinery done, mortising the feet and legs together. I get some new saws too. After I see myself working with them I realise I have to improve my body mechanics and form. But I am having fun, and to me, that is the whole point. View on YouTube

Acoustic Instruments #3: Marimba Frame Time

11-22-2016 04:01 PM by johnstoneb | 2 comments »

Building the frame was just straight forward woodworking, accurate measurement and square cuts. I built the frame out of cherry 1. I like cherry and how it darkens over time and 2. it was a $400 upgrade for frame on one of the commercial marimba websites. I can get cherry at a reasonable price here.The first thing is to make the two ends. Time to make the keyboard frames. This is one place where building the glockenspiel first really helped in understanding why and how important...

Acoustic Instruments #2: Starting the Marimba

11-20-2016 03:36 PM by johnstoneb | 6 comments »

I have finally started on the marimba. I am following the plans I got from makeamarimba.com. They are a good plans although some times you have to translate from oz to usa english. I did a lot of searching on line on commercial marimbas and settled on padauk for the keyboard and cherry for the frame. The preferred wood for concert keyboards is rosewood. I called my hardwood supplier to get a price on rosewood when I was able to breath again I decided padauk was a good keyboard wood (most...

Shop stuff #63: Coffee table Pt 4

11-14-2016 07:45 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, a coffee table needs legs right? In this one I make up the slabs for the legs of the coffee table. Lots of cutting and milling and work with the hand plane. In the end I have 2 nice blanks to be used for the legs of the table. I experimented with a new intro and outro and getting some different angles on some shots. I also kept it under 20 minutes. Makes more episodes I suppose. View on YouTube
