Shop Notes #11: A Productive Week

03-09-2018 08:39 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

Getting my resaw blade in place really opened the floodgates this week. I finished gluing up and planing my mid-century modern boards. I also finished up some leftover chaotic pattern boards that were still hanging around from the holiday rush. By mid week, I was looking at a stack of some 17 cutting boards, ready for sanding. The chaotic boards were made 1 1/2” thick and haven’t sold well in that size. As a test, I sawed one into two 3/4” boards and ran them through ...

Hammer A3-41 #2: Moving an 800 pound jointer/planer into my basement shop

03-06-2018 08:34 PM by CharlieK | 4 comments »

View on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1h2sW8dLpO4 I was a little concerned about the initial delivery of the new combo machine, especially since I have a long driveway it’s wintertime here in Minnesota. When my bandsaw was delivered several years ago the driver wouldn’t back into my driveway. He just parked on the street and we wheeled it up to the garage on a pallet jack. As you can see by my first post, those concerns were unnecessary. NOW, I had to get th...

Building a Spherical Chess Set #4: The Base

02-04-2018 03:05 PM by johnstoneb | 4 comments »

Now that I have the globe turned and a couple coats of shellac on it. It is time to turn to the base. I decided to use a 5/8 dowel for the globe axis so first I need to drill the globe. One of the advantages of turning between centers is you have the center marked for drilling holes. The globe is hollow so I only had to drill an inch or so from either end. I also drilled a 1 1/2” counterbore in both ends for the mount spacer and top hat. I had some fairly good photographs from instr...

Stand Up Jewelry Box #6: Ring Tray and Smaller boxes

01-20-2018 02:26 AM by cowboyup3371 | 2 comments »

I have repeatedly said one of the best things of this project is that my eldest daughter and I are spending time together working on it. Unfortunately the extreme cold weather we are having has done a number on her health causing pain in her chest and overall discomfort. As such, she is unable to work in our shop for very long which has created a major damper on that time. So today, I took her out to Wright Patterson Air Force Base’s wood shop so we could build her portion of the pro...

Shop Notes #4: Planer Fun

01-17-2018 04:48 PM by Steve | 1 comment »

I dug into my planer yesterday as part of my January shop rehab. Over the course of the year, I occasionally scrub off the pitch buildup on the rollers, inspect the knives and lube up the moving parts. Annually, though, I dig out the manual and check off the bigger items, like cleaning the drive chains and inspecting the v-belts. On pulling the gear cover, I discovered that a bolt holding one of the drives had come completely out. The gear didn’t come off the shaft, thank goodnes...

I worked for 22 years in the steel manufacturing sector. 11 of those years were for a trailer manufacturing company. When I left I asked them for a picture file they had of the whole crew of one of the biggest project I was involved in while working there.I decided to make a Greene&Greene mixed with Shou Sugi Ban for the finish.I also made a video of the build and it is on my You Tube Channel. I’ll leave a link to it below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFcQnPI5OqM&t=27s

Router table upgrade

01-03-2018 01:35 AM by Al Breit | 2 comments »

I just took my Kreg router table enclosed the router motor for better dust collection and added drawers for storage of router bits. I bent up an aluminum box to enclose the router with a 4” dust port. Added some extra holes for locking the spindle and a brass bar for locking the spindle height after adjustments. For the brass bar I cut a slot just big enough to allow the bar to fit through and a simple heavy duty rubber band to keep the lock leave upright. My Tryton router had it builti...
