Pallet Made Wine Rack #2: The final product

With Christmas right around the corner I had to try to finish this wine rack in the middle of a couple of other projects going on. I got it finished though, ahead of schedule so that is always good. Check out the video here.

Jigs and Such #3: Getting the Lumber Home

01-13-2013 12:59 AM by Chris Moellering | 8 comments »

We recently crossed a milestone at our house. We are no long a minivan family after almost 18 years of having one. This makes the wife quite happy and she really likes her new Kia Soul. However, I lost my way to haul stuff home from Lowe’s. So, I got to thinking and looking. I just can’t justify a truck… So I decided to see what I could do with my roof rack on my Kia Rio. I have a rack that I use for my kayaks, so it was just a matter of ripping a 2×6 I had lay...

New State, New Shop #10: Clamp Rack

11-02-2012 06:24 PM by DrPuk2U | 3 comments »

I haven’t been blogging much lately – too busy. But I have made progress on the shop as you will see if you read this and the next blog I got tired of tripping over my clamps and having them all over the shop. I saw a couple of clamp racks on the web that looked good. Initially, I was going to go with one that was very simple but used a fair amount of wall space. Then I saw one that Stumpy Nubs created. I thought the general idea was good, so I copied his. Actually, I bou...

Dave's Workshop #2: The Disappearing Clamp Rack

09-01-2012 11:44 AM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

Wall space is a premium in my shop because of the multiple uses of the space. When I started thinking about making clamps I knew I would need a place to store them. I devised a way to put a clamp rack in front of my scrap stick area and hinge it so that it could be pulled up to the ceiling when I didn’t need to access my longer clamps. It’s raised with two pullies with the rope held taught with an old window sash weight. A clip hooks onto a screw eye at the bottom of the rack...

Katanakake (Japanese sword stand) #4: Fixing stupid mistakes, but it's finally taking shape.

08-07-2012 08:47 PM by BTimmons | 2 comments »

The shims I glued to my tenons are ready to be pared back. Seems like the mortises were just a little less than square with each other, which caused the twist when connecting the two of them with the center piece. So this session involved a lot of me hunching over the bench paring away paper thin shavings. Testing my fit. The top of the tenon cheek is good, but the rest of it is still a little too fat. Shaving just a bit off, and then it fits nice and snug. I also dete...

Katanakake (Japanese sword stand) #3: Tweaking the fit, first coat of oil finish

08-05-2012 09:27 PM by BTimmons | 1 comment »

Last time I didn’t have all four bottom surfaces sitting flat. Turns out this was due to the center piece being fitted with a slight twist because one mortise had been carved out with a slight twist. So, by the time the mortise was straightened out somewhat with a chisel, the tenons didn’t quite fit as snug as they should. So on both tenons of the center piece, I glued some thin mahogany strips to shim up the tenons to tighten the fit. These will likely end up being pared or f...

Katanakake (Japanese sword stand) #2: More bandsaw shaping, some drilling, and lots of sanding

08-04-2012 10:56 PM by BTimmons | 0 comments »

In case you missed it, here is Part 1 in this series. First thing I did was employ my new-to-me drill press to establish an inner curve for the vaulted feet. Placing the center brad of a Forstner bit ensures that an even radius is cut into both sides, which were held together with blue tape. Not an ideal clamping solution, but it’s adequate for this. Always use a backer board to avoid blowout! I had a bit of tearout around the mortise here, but the rack will obscure the flaw af...
