Shop stuff #22: A board of Cherry

12-22-2015 06:13 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

The start of building a Christmas present. Getting thing roughed out and thinking about sizes. I opt for hand tool work many aspects and use machines for things I don’t want to take a chance on. There are certain places that the machines are still required. I don’t think I will ever get rid of them and go totally hand tool, but I keep experimenting to build my skills. Also, trying to embed the video for the first time, we will see if it works. View on YouTube

Butterfly Dining Table #7: Cutting, Sizing and Framing the Top

12-18-2015 12:21 AM by Guy Dunlap | 9 comments »

In this video, I cut the three pieces that make up the top that totals 8’ when fully expanded. I also show how to install the butterfly hinges for the folding extension.Then I cut corners off and prepare the lumber for the solid wood frame along with making a solid “inlay” detail around the entire top. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To get updates of this build as I go along, please follow me on Instagram – https://instagram.com/guyswoodshop...

Double Single Bed #2: Big Pieces Into Small Pieces

12-16-2015 04:01 PM by ttocsmi | 0 comments »

Well, the SE Michigan weather continues to be more balmy than frozen, so work on the bed frames continues. I’m out of propane now, too. This week I received the bed bolts from Horton Brass ($4.50 each) & placed an order for the box spring fasteners / bed irons ($2.25) and bed bolt covers ($1.85) from Baltimore Hardware. I rough cut, jointed, & thickness planed the pieces for the posts, 2 x long and 2 x short for each bed, from 8/4 red oak. For the first 12 inches, rippin...

Shelves For My Fishing Room

12-13-2015 11:51 AM by PeteCollin | 0 comments »

Hello All, I have a room dedicated to keeping my fly tying desk and all of my fishing accouterments. It had gotten very untidy in there so I made some sturdy shelves to organize things. I made a video of the process. I invite you to a tour of my man-cave! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nn9HrLaFfvo

Planer cutterhead bearing replacement #2: The bearing is removed; what next?

12-13-2015 01:45 AM by lightweightladylefty | 8 comments »

PTL! The bearing is finally off! I eventually came to the realization that I should remove the motor to make the remaining parts easier to maneuver. I removed all the bearing beads with no difficulty since the raceway was broken and I had already removed it. To try to keep the shaft centered so that there would be minimal torque on the opposite bearing, I wedged in a small piece of wood. On the underside of the cast housing, there is an indention (that was, no doubt, the only w...

Cooking Up Woodworking

12-12-2015 06:11 AM by Picken5 | 3 comments »

This video was just too funny not to share. For those that have already seen this, my apologies, but I just couldn’t resist. It was apparently created by Nathan Rench of August Oak Woodworks in Temecula, CA. He said he seemed to always run across recipe videos on facebook, so he decided to have a little fun and created this video. I’ve never seen such a nice box made this way…. Enjoy! Woodworking Recipe

Planer cutterhead bearing replacement #1: HELP! Can anyone give me advice on replacing bearings on my planer cutterhead?

12-09-2015 10:37 PM by lightweightladylefty | 5 comments »

Last week my planer blew a bearing on the cutterhead. It is a NuMark 12” planer, more than 30 years old. The company went out of business many years ago. I cannot determine how to remove the cutterhead. Here’s the issue:1. The cutterhead casting is a single unit. 2. The bearings on either end are smaller than the cutterhead circumference so the cutterhead cannot be pulled out either end. .3. From the parts schematic, the cutterhead appears to be one piece (no smaller diameter inside sh...

Toy building #4: The Concrete Pump basic truck

12-07-2015 03:41 PM by johnstoneb | 6 comments »

About the end of August I decided I had better get started on building something or would have nothing for Christmas. I started the layout and cutting material for the build. I had resawed a bunch of maple for drawers on my toolbox build so had quite a bit of maple about 5/16 thick that I planed down to 1/4” and cut up some walnut. I was just getting ready to start glueup when a friend called and wanted to know if I wanted to run the Main Salmon. That was a no brainer of course I wa...

A quick tour of my shop.

12-06-2015 07:31 PM by CharlieK | 15 comments »

I have been meaning to do a shop tour video for some time, but never quite got around to it. Then I met a young photographer named Michael DeVowe. Michael graciously came over to my house and filmed this for me. I have received “feedback” in the past about too many “um’s and ah’s” in my presentation. After Michael gave me the completed video I went back and did some post editing and cut out most of the um’s and ah’s. Let me know how you ...
