Shop stuff #121: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash Pt 3

04-07-2018 02:56 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, I got it all done. A little longer video, but I wanted to get to the end of it with this one while I was editing. Man, you wouldn’t believe the hours of footage NOT shown….lol. Anyway, the build was a fun one and I tried a couple of things I have never done before. My son in law likes his present and has his guitar on it now. Of course, mine got first ride because I had to video it in action. All in all, I like how it came out. Pretty close to what I had in my head, w...

Violin Kit #1: Unboxing

04-05-2018 04:38 PM by Dave Rutan | 9 comments »

I decided to buy myself some education on lutherie. This is a kit that I bought from eBay, though it apparently is the same kit that you’d get from tomtop.com [link]. The body of the violin comes pre-assembled, but unlike the more expensive stew mac version, the purfling is already installed. I was actually expecting painted on purfling, so this was a pleasant surprise. I’ll need to create the dado into which the neck is fit and fit the pegs and drill a hole for the end button. The only t...

Dungeon Remodel, the drill til #2: Clean a bench, install the til

04-05-2018 04:54 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, part 2. Instead of taking a nap, decided to clean house in the shop…. Lots of just junk in the way….other items just needed put away, finally. This “bench” used to be an old square table, somewhere in it’s history, it lost it’s legs. So now, it sits on a pair of sawhorses. This was the original bench when the Dungeon Shop first started up. Grinder and sanding center needed to be switched around. First, wire wheels were removed from the g...

Dungeon Remodel, the drill til #1: Start up, getting rid of the mess

04-05-2018 04:17 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, something a little different this time around. Had a bit of Pine leftovers.. Some fancy, most were not. I even found a 1×10 to add to the fancy stuff..1×10 x 4’....needed a way to make use of some of this lumber, rather than throwing it in the fire pit…hmm… Over-flowing with braces…this old til has been out-grown….6 spaces, for 12 drills? I think I could do a bit better? I could build a longer/wider til…..but where to set it? ...

Pole Barn Workshop Remodel #3: Slow, very slow progress

04-03-2018 04:45 PM by PoohBaah | 7 comments »

Well, it has been 6 months since the last update and well not much has changed. Between fall harvest, winter and now calving season coming early there was not much progress on the old barn but we are starting to gain some momentum now. I have been in contact with a local guy that is going to put the new roof on for me. I was in Menards on Saturday to pick up supplies for a new set of back steps and while loading the lumber I noticed they had 45 sheets of 12’ white steel in the discount ...

Greene & Greene Gamble House Side Chair #19: Preparing Apron Stock, a Router Template and Crest Rail Shaping

04-02-2018 03:10 AM by TungOil | 8 comments »

With the side slats cut and fit for all the chairs, I turn my attention to preparing the stock for the side and front aprons. I had rough cut the material for these parts a while ago, but had not gotten to resawing it yet. After flattening one face and squaring an edge on the jointer, I set up the resaw blade on the bandsaw and split the boards into two pieces 15/16”thick. I’ll let this stock sit for a few days before I take it to the planer for final dimensioning. Next I put togeth...

Shop stuff #120: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash Pt 2

03-29-2018 10:46 PM by JimDaddyO | 4 comments »

Starting to tackle the base of the guitar stand. The piece of walnut came from the firewood pile. This is a recurring role for this piece as it is the one I used in the video checking out the 6” Bosch 1250 DEVS sander. But since you’re subscribed, you know that, right?...lol. View on YouTube

Hand tool workbench build #3: First lamination

03-28-2018 06:13 AM by SauceMan | 4 comments »

I’ll keep this one brief, but I am pretty psyched—today / two days ago mark a big milestone in my build. I finally laminated some wood together. What felt like lots of crosscutting and ripping with my hand tools (and planing) finally led to this. Here you can see six layers of 8/4 hard maple laminated together. That makes about half of the workbench top for my split-top roubo style workbench. You’ll see there’s still more hand planing to do, but I plan on doing ...

Making Progress

03-27-2018 09:25 PM by MKH | 1 comment »

Just stopped by for a quick update on my progress. The garage is almost cleaned out to the point that I can begin assembling my shop. One more round of stuff for the trash-man to go out tomorrow (3/28). I have purchased a mobile stand for my Ryobi 12 SCMC and I will do a review on that soon. I have pretty much decided on my table saw and I’m just waiting to order it from my local Woodcraft store. My goal is to put the saw into place in the shop then organize the garage around the saw...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #18: Last drawer and aPIP

03-26-2018 02:02 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Just getting caught up….had a few health issues over the weekend… Had a blank for the skinny drawer’s front, cut and fitted to the opening..needed to rip a board down to make it, and these three parts… And, with my usual luck..the two side pieces were 3/4” too short….made do, anyway… Front gets through dovetails, to match the other drawer. Saw a few lines.. Chop about half of one side’s pins, flip the board over, and pop the rest ou...
