Workshop #16: ShopQuest 2012- Serious Progress Made

02-04-2012 04:19 AM by clieb91 | 7 comments »

but still more to go. Over the past few evenings and having the day today I was able to put another serious dent in the reorg of my shop. I have officially gotten everything moved around to about where I want it. The major push (and I mean it physically) was to get my lumber cart moved over to the wall that is just bare concrete and therefore not good for hanging anything. So here is what the back of the shop looked like last week. With a bit of pushing and some help from those little ...

Nicholson Bench #10: The Top

02-04-2012 01:37 AM by mpmitche | 2 comments »

Over the last few days I was able to get the top on my bench mostly complete. I started by working one face of the boards with a jack plane to remove twist and flatten the boards. I broke down and dressed the second side with a power planner I borrowed from a friend. Once all the boards were dressed I laid them out on the table and planned the edges square and put a little spring in the boards. The spring allowed me to clamp up the assembly with only one clamp as I don’t...

Watch Box #8: Finished

02-03-2012 04:43 PM by Andy | 42 comments »

Finally I got it done and shipped it off to the customer. He wont get it in his hands until next week, so I will post his impressions when I hear back. I hope its what he wants!!! TIP:Some of you may know about this but many will not. This is my secret to quickly fine sand the box prior to spraying lacquer. I hand sanded down to 220 and then I finish up with green nylon pads. These were bought at the local dollar store. Guess how much? Thats right, a whole dollar. You can buy similar pads ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #602: Happy Feet

02-03-2012 01:53 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I had a pretty productive day yesterday. Among other things, I finished up painting my samples of the little witches’ boots. I now have all twelve done and today I will be creating the pattern packet and doing the ‘good photography’ on them. I did take some quick snapshots this morning so I have something to show you all. Here are the pictures of them for now: I didn’t set the light box up or anything like that so the coloring isn’t quite right, bu...

My largest chopping board yet. #6: Shipping to the USA?

02-02-2012 11:41 PM by degoose | 15 comments »

My largest board yet would cost between AU$94.80 [best part of a hundred bucks US and take several weeks] and AU$228.95 [US$240.00 and a few days] to send to the states…I don’t think the US is going to be my target market with these big boards… although you never know…With my prices low and shipping high… I may still be in with a chance over the top end of the market there…What say you all?

Strip Canoe #2: Stripping Is Done!

02-02-2012 10:58 PM by Philip "Pip" Storm | 13 comments »

I have the stripping done. So, I thought I’d share some pics. The pics get better. I promise. I had a difficult time making the transition from vertical to horizontal across the stem. It felt to me like the stem form was getting in the way. When I referred back to Mr. Gilpatrick’s book He stated that this may happen and if so do some trimming. There we go! The transition was still a bit of a bear. Three hands and plenty of screws required...

Dave's Wide Drum Sander Build. #5: Digging through the lumber racks to fish out the 2x6 stock...

02-02-2012 07:45 PM by dbhost | 2 comments »

I had previously mentioned that I was planning on using 2×6 stock, that I will S4S, cut to length matching the width left after jointing and ripping (I expect 5.25”, gluing it all up, finding center, drawing my rough circle on with a compass, and cutting to ROUGH round dimension on the band saw. With all of the issues at hand and known as discussed in my prior blog entry, I have opted to go with the wood plugged PVC drum out of a need to make the build simpler based on the tools...

Watch Box #7: OOPS!!

02-02-2012 05:26 PM by Andy | 22 comments »

This is why its been awhile since my last post. One of the problems with shaping wood to this extent is any flaws show up. Figured Bigleaf Maple, aka Western Maple, Oregon Maple, Acer macrophyllum, can have pits, bark inclusions, etc… Well, I found a few during the final shaping. I knew I was getting pretty close to maximum depth in one corner, but I couldnt leave that little black spot glaring at me. Then I was all the way through and exposing the bloodwood below, nothing ...
