Getting my tools ready #17: "Cut it off twice and it was still to short," or look ma I got wheels!

12-03-2014 02:37 AM by DocSavage45 | 4 comments »

I finally got my Hybrid Woodworkers Bench mobile and ready to go. I found some different castors from Peachtree though their email specials. Told myself “gonna get this puppy runnin around my shop!” As those who follow some of my ramblings know I had put some castors with a stem into the legs of my bench but even though I found star nuts to fit the shafts and re threaded the star nuts, the stem was not long enough and the forces from the bench weight caused it to wobble. a qui...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #22: Upcycling Old Furniture for the Dungeon

12-03-2014 12:21 AM by Paul Bucalo | 2 comments »

I have been making one heck of a mess in the dungeon, lately. Seriously. But it’s a necessary mess, because I am slowly upcycling two pieces of old, beat-up furniture that had been in the dungeon for well over a decade into workbenches that will never win a beauty contest, but will surely be stout workhorses until their final day. I can only show you the one I am working on right now. The other one needs a new top. That will have to wait until this one is finished and I can store all th...

Working title - LLB #2: So the story begins

12-02-2014 01:53 PM by BritBoxmaker | 5 comments »

The box walls and lid are going to have two layers The outside, Mondo (I still don’t know if thats a proper name) and the inside, Padauk. The layers are 3 mm thick. The legs and lid decoration will pass through the outer layer and only partially through the inner (in the case of the legs only). First thing to do is sand down the outside of the outer layer and inside of the inner layer to 400 grit and give them a coat of acrylic varnish. Whilst I don’t expect this ...

Childs Play #3: Toy Handplane Build #3.... Frogs and Totes Oh My!

12-02-2014 03:21 AM by Airframer | 7 comments »

I have taken some long over due time off of work this week and am taking advantage of it as much as I can. Today I got busy on the frog, receiving plate and lever cap. Last week I had already finished adding the knob/tote screw posts and cut out and drilled the tote for this guy. Dug out a chunk of aluminum and started cutting… I REALLY need to consider a metal band saw lol… And with that done I had the “machined” base for the frog. Next w...

I then sorted the timber and cut the parts The planks on the left are the top at 2.5...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1454: Welcome December!

12-01-2014 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It is hard to believe it is December already! The autumn months are always my favorite, but it always seems that they pass by so quickly. Here in Nova Scotia we have had several days of dusting snow and lately it has been cool and grey. Winter is definitely coming.The beginning of the new month is also a significant day for me. My oldest child (Phil) has turned 31 today. It is hard to believe that it was that long ago when he was just a little guy. It seemed like in a blick of an eye he grew ...

Tuning up my new old unisaw #1: Routing cast iron

12-01-2014 06:26 AM by TheFridge | 9 comments »

So I traded a .270 weatherby and 300$ for an old rockwell unisaw that was just refurbished by its previous owner. I got it dialed in when I discovered the top was warped when I went to cut some tenons to test it out. Needless to say, this was a big problem. A machine shop wanted 400$ to surface grind .010 off, but even then the heat could still warp it. There were also no shop with a Blanchard grinder from laffayette to houma to New Orleans with the capacity to do it, that were willing...

Student desk #1: Frame and top.

12-01-2014 02:41 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 8 comments »

Howdy, I’ve been working on my son’s desktop for a while now. I have a Christmas due date so I had to get a move on. The desk frame took me all weekend. That really surprised me. I imagine I could go a lot faster If I didn’t fly by the seat of my pants all the time. A plan might be helpful. Any how, I’m using rabbit joint joints for the first time and they came with a whole bundle of lessons. They didn’t come out perfect but I believe I can do better next t...
