Segmented Stave Bowl #2: Day Two

01-08-2013 06:55 PM by TheDane | 3 comments »

With the glue dry on the two halves of the bowl, I needed to make sure they would mate up properly when glued together. I use a piece of melamine shelf board with a strip of 80-grit paper glued to it to true the two halves. I shade both ends of the half bowl with a lead pencil and sand until the marks are gone. They actually weren’t very far off, but why take the chance? I then glued the vertical spacers to the two halves, and glued the halves together. I taped the joints, then u...

and then it becomes....... #10: Just a little longer

01-24-2009 07:26 AM by kolwdwrkr | 3 comments »

Well I’m on the home stretch on this project guys. The main door is hung, the interior is installed and the handle is on. Now I have one more interior door to install and then I can start the finish. So the reason for this is to let everyone know that either tomorrow or sunday the project will be complete and I will post the final blog. It’s been a long road and I enjoyed every minute of it. I have to say this project took a very long time. I may have to smoke a cigar after thi...

A Special Unicorn Project #6: Time To Start Ironing Out The Details

10-06-2010 01:55 PM by William | 3 comments »

Well, as usual, my wife is always right. I told her with my doctor’s appointments and all for Monday and Tuesday, that I wasn’t even going to try going to the shop. I was just going to take it easy. She told me as she was walking out the door Monday to go pick the kids up from school that I’d be over there doing something. She was right. I just couldn’t stand it. I was painting before she got back home. What you see above is the first coat of paint on the unicorn and t...

Deluxe Router Station #1: The Deluxe Router Station

11-10-2011 11:30 PM by bachambers | 3 comments »

I’ve nearly completed with Norm’s Deluxe Router Station, which has been fun but challenging. Of course like any other project, I planned on having it completed and be onto the next thing by now, but unfortunately there isn’t enough time in the days, weeks or months! And now it’s cold in the shop, which is why I’m sitting here typing this blog, rather than out in the shop finishing the darn thing! So the story begins several months ago as I was in desperate n...

Workbench Build #4: More work on the vise plus a failed trip to the local mill...

02-04-2013 05:52 AM by Airframer | 3 comments »

This morning I went over to my bosses house so we could weld up the bolt bracket for the leg vise. He had some scrap plate metal on hand and a plasma cutter (want one lol). He made quick work of the job and within an hour I have a rough plate with a large bolt attached to it. He left it up to me to clean it up and drill the mounting holes plus I owe him lunch tomorrow heh. He ALSO gave me a practically new angle grinder so I can cut up the 6’ rod to length so that is a bonus. eit...

Building a Dr. White's Chest #5: Case Legs

05-04-2013 12:28 PM by DustyMark | 3 comments »

Case Legs Watch this video to view the leg construction and track my progress on the face frame. I like legs that are cut in two planes on a tall case like Dr. White’s chest. This gives the legs a more fully formed look. I used a wider lower rail with a mortise and tenon joint at the base of the face frame rather than a narrow piece with a dovetail joint. Our vacuum floor attachment will still reach under the face of the case to suck up dust balls! The sides of the original Dr. Whit...

Texas Star Inlay #2: Completing the Inlay

10-15-2013 07:02 PM by cakman | 3 comments »

Here is some more progress of the inlay. I started off by lightly tacking the star in the position I wanted and tracing the outline with a sharp knife. Light strokes at first and then gradually deeper. And then using a chisel to remove a little v notch. This allows me to cut slightly deeper with the knife and establishes the outside shoulder of the inlay mortise. It also gives me a visual barrier to look out for on the next step. I chucked up a small straight cutting bit in m...

When you have the attention span of a 1 year old things move a bit slow.. good thing the boy keeps me on task :D We made it to the big orange store and picked up most of what is needed for the vises.. Then yesterday I snuck outside to glue up the padouk strip so we can get to work on the endcaps and skirt etc.. Today the boy and I got it out of the clamps and got to work cleaning up the glue joint and making everything coplaner.. Then some cleanup.. And here is the ...

Rebuilding the Bear #1: Rebuilding 1986 Grizzly 18" Bandsaw

12-19-2010 05:42 AM by Jon McGrath | 3 comments »

Tonight it begins, the journey of my first major tool rebuild. A very dear friend of mine has given me a Grizzly 18” Bandsaw. It was his neighbors who used it for cutting pipe – he got is around 5 years ago from another guy who was a woodworker who had not used the saw for at least 10 years. At this point my new old saw was a purchase – not knowing what the original owner paid, but starting with number 2 owner – $500.00 then on my friends neighbor for $300.00 and a se...
