Not much today. Just snapped some pics of the workbench top to show y’all how it is looking… I don’t know about you folks, but I LOVE that color! I need to finish sanding the edges and get after them with some oil, then get after the base… And finally, wax it all down…
With so many types of slides out there, there are different ways in which to install them. So here is another type of slide installation. I hope this is informative for everyone.
Here is a piece of wood I received from Rastus I am trying to decide what it is going to become. Does anyone have any suggestions? Pieces are about 4 inches long and 3 wide at the widest. Re-Sawed to 1/8 inch thick for inlay. Here are the pics I took of it before and after I sliced it for inlay. Is it going to be Hearts? or maybe Angel Wings? Or could it end up as a Butterfly? Here is what it looks like with a litle Mineral Spirits wiped on it. I just love this w...
I set aside the me I decided to use some scraps of Ipé from the deck that was built a couple years ago to finally build that bench, to sit on top of said deck. Here is a sketchup snapshot of part of the design; And a few of work in progress. I cut the butt-swoop in the top of the ‘ribs’ on the bandsaw. I cut the dadoes in the rail to fit the seat supports w/a router, then drilled holes for walnut dowels.I tried use the best SS screws I had, but the 1st one snapped, and ...
Hi All This is a short slideshow showing the making of a batch of our latest ring boxes. Enjoy Ian Ring Box Slideshow
Here are a few photo’s of how i prepared 2 of the blanks although the stainless steal blank broke the m6 die.hopefully i have a solution to this and it will no longer be an issue on the other 2 ss blanks.With the carbon blade i die’d the end first to fit an m6 nut. i use this to help keep the knife clamped together. I have heard stories of the epoxy lasting a few years and the knife then simply putting it . fall apart. i feel the nut at the end is a good way of helping this...
While I did enjoy these last couple of weeks and taking some time for myself, the realization has hit that it isn’t really something that I want to make a habit. It seems that it has been way too long since I really had a good productive drawing day and a day at the saw and I miss it a great deal. I am finding though that taking a step back from time to time and refocusing on something else is really good for us in general. No matter how much we love doing something, continually doin...
I started woodworking in my early 20s (many year ago). Prior to this the only real exposure to woodworking I had was building remote controlled model aircroft out of balsa. I started by taking a year long rough carpentry course at a local community college. What does this have to do with workbenchs you wonder.. I believe a well designed workbench starts with your experience with workbenches. Thinking back I have had the oppourtunity to use a few workbenches and there are a few things I discov...
It’s been a busy and productive past two days. Got all my stock to dimension and ready to go. Cut everything to length with my uber awesome “miter station”... Oh yeah, look at my built in stop blocks baby! I’m a tenon’s first kind of guy. My only reasoning, and not sure how good it is, is I like to take the pieces with tenons, and use those in 3D for the layouts of my Mortises. With a piece like this with a lot of slats, I feel it’s easier that wa...
