A journey into the workshop. #111: New video. Changing shop light bulbs in a messy shop for safety, and trying to figure turquoise out.

11-15-2016 03:52 AM by dbhost | 12 comments »

So my latest video is out here I am going over changing out my 8 year old shop light bulbs for safety sake, and I include a 360 degree view that you might find interesting… I apologize in advance for the audio as I was in a hurry and forgot to use my audio recorder / lavalier mic. My on camera audio pretty much stinks. Trying to clean it up made it worse… Not in the video… Yesterday we went to the Houston Gem and Mineral show and I pi...

Cherry Box of squares #4: Glue-ups

11-14-2016 10:52 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Dryfit came out decent enough…. Somehow missed that one side was a hair shorter than the opposite side. Will just have to deal with that. Got to the point I could spread some Elmer’s around… Somewhere, in the midst of that forest of clamps is a box…...let it side for a day….. Ok, today the clamps came off, wore me out just doing that…..Decided to clean things up a t bit.. Set the box in the vise. Any holes got a dribble of glue, and a pi...

4 String Dulcimer Build #4: Fingerboard

11-14-2016 09:55 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

After cutting a new fingerboard stick from my mahogany, I proceeded to mill it, etc. Roy Underhill stated in his video where he shows, sort of, how to make a dulcimer, that the fingerboard is the key. You can stick a fingerboard on anything and it will work, but it needs to be correct. [Above] After cutting the stick to correct size, I marked it up according to the instructions. Several things get done to the fingerboard, and I already learned how to avoid a few problems from my las...

Yet Another Craftsman 113 Saw Blog #10: And on we go

11-14-2016 08:51 PM by jonlruss | 0 comments »

When I started this project one thing I thought as I went through the blogs of others was, how can it take so long? Here I am months after starting and boy do I get it now. Between family obligations, vacation, getting sick, weather, and only getting so many hours over a weekend that can be devoted to it I really understand now. At any rate, the last two weekends I’ve managed to get in a little more time working on this. Unfortunately I got a late start on Saturday, if I’d had ...

Shop stuff #63: Coffee table Pt 4

11-14-2016 07:45 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, a coffee table needs legs right? In this one I make up the slabs for the legs of the coffee table. Lots of cutting and milling and work with the hand plane. In the end I have 2 nice blanks to be used for the legs of the table. I experimented with a new intro and outro and getting some different angles on some shots. I also kept it under 20 minutes. Makes more episodes I suppose. View on YouTube

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1800: Some New Woodworking Patterns

11-14-2016 01:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

As I began to post this morning, I realized that this is my 1800th blog post. When I started blogging several years ago, I never in my wildest dreams would have thought that I would be capable of writing that many entries! Just thinking of 1800 titles alone just blows my mind. But it has really been nice sharing my creative process with you all and I hope to continue to do so as long as you all want to read about it. I still feel there are several more chapters to write, and I hope you are ri...

Restoring a "Zenith" by Marshall Wells Hardware transitional plane.

11-12-2016 07:33 PM by poopiekat | 6 comments »

This plane was purchased at auction recently: I do my usual triage, assign it a number for my spreadsheet, from whence it gets put away for my after-retirement hobby. But I found this one intriguing enough to tackle right away. First, the tote. The shark-fin was snapped off, and so I pieced in some replacement stock, and faired it in to the original contours. Strip off all the cast iron parts, sandblast them, and use a 3-M deburring wheel to a smooth finish: ...

Dual Miter Saw station #6: Making/attaching the doors

11-11-2016 09:48 PM by Tooch | 3 comments »

After finishing the face frame, I knew it was time to build some doors to make the station look a little more complete and also keep dust out. Because of the shop vacs, the plan is to only build 5 doors, that way there will still be enough airflowfor the vacuum to work properly. The first step was to route a bunch of pieces for the frame. When cutting a bunch of pieces that need to be the same measurements, I find it’s easiest to stack them up and cut all at once. Afte...
