It didnt turn out well, still licking my wounds. Here is briefly what happened… Made a new jigAfter one test screw, I successfuly made one that had reasonable little chipping, I was happy with it.I actually cut the hub off a reject screw and reused it on this one. Tapped the leg Tried the screw, but it binds up after a little bit. I kept tapping the threads deeper and deeper hoping it would fit but it wasn’t the diameter of the hole, it was the thread pitch, and since the...

This will be glued up and then shaped into the final product… Let us see who can come up with the correct answer &...

Birth of a 4-axis CNC machine #3: How lovely are the feet!

11-21-2012 04:07 PM by DS | 58 comments »

Okay, so I finally had to spend some money on this project… I knew I needed a good foundation on this beast of a machine I am going to build, so I went about looking for a suitable set of leveler feet for it.What I decided on turned out to be fairly cost effective and appropriately substantial to handle the anticipated load I’m going to put on this thing. For $26.99 I found a set of four Billiard table legs on Amazon which looked like they would mount up perfectly to my mach...

04-10-2013 02:35 PM by Nate Meadows | 57 comments »

I wanted to share with all of you what I got in the mail the other day! Hardwood Floors asked to do an article on my floor now and one when it is completely finished. I am totally blown away were I find myself today! When I started working on the floor, I had no idea it would lead to anything like this…leading to making new friends and having so many people take interest in it. Now I just have to get back in the shop and finish it:). I am still working on the electrical, its a big job b...

Workbench #9: Making Wooden Screws

10-08-2011 02:33 AM by CartersWhittling | 57 comments »

Hello. This is a video showing the process I go through to make wooden screws. I briefly try to explain how it is set up and show the jig making the screw. I will soon have a video on making wooden nuts aswell. I will eventually make a video showing how to make the tap and screw making jig and explain how to create the size of screw you want. I’m sure there are many other ways to make nuts and screws but this is how I do it and it works fairly well, the main downside being that I can ge...

Charles Neil lowboy build-along, #14 Hey everyone, sorry for the long delay. I’m afraid it’s called life’s little distractions. I’m back at the lowboy, if there’s anyone still interested?A partial recap, plus update.When I left off, I was getting ready to make the drawers. I got a good start and then disaster struck.. my clamps slipped and I wiped out what I thought was the only poplar I had left, plus I was a little short on mahogany for the drawer fronts. Ultimately, I found some thick p...

'This Old Crack House' #48: The Final Chapter... You cant judge a blog by its cover...Is a picture worth a thousand words?

07-17-2007 03:59 AM by Dusty | 53 comments »

In the end, I feel very strong that we won’t, nor should be; remembered or judged for our words, but rather the sum total of our actions and deeds. To this truth as I know and understand it, I will let the pictures of “This Old Crack House.” speak for them selves. Every piece of furniture was designed and built with my own hands, along with all the decorating, color choices, and room layouts, which are my own creations. You then can be the judge and come to your own conclusions. E...

SPOON, SCOOP, COFFEE or otherwise CLUB/Challenge

11-11-2010 03:46 PM by rivergirl | 50 comments »

HEAR YE, HEAR YE!! Yes, Virginia we now have definitive proof that cavemen did enjoy scooping coffee! In fact cromagnun man (and woman) were the precursor to modern day Starbucks. In response to my recent posting of a neanderthal period coffee scoop, that was presented alongside a lovely model crafted by my L/J friend Jerry W, it was suggested that we begin an archelogical study, a challenge or showcase if you will of scoops and spoons. Because it was my shamelessly (or was it shamefacedl...
