Drill Press Table #1: The Basics

08-17-2013 12:01 AM by RaggedKerf | 1 comment »

For my castle bookcase project, I needed to make a series of 1” holes in a long strip of 1/4” plywood. I figured the easiest way was to use the drill press. To do so efficiently, though, required a fence and table. I’ve been meaning to make one of these for a while, so I figured, now’s the time! It’s very simple. Just a square of 1/2” ply with a little 2” square on the upper left corner to fit on the side of the drill press support pole. The...

Virtual Designs in Sketchup #17: Illusionist's Heart Pendant

10-07-2012 08:17 PM by rance | 2 comments »

Seeing that many folks seem to be interested in the construction of the Heart Pendant that Daftehh built, I asked him if he was planning on posting further instruction.

I truely use it as one of my woodworking ‘tools’ to determine dimensions, angles, etc. By drawing the heart out as two individual halves, I began with the basic ‘Pill’ shape....

The next day Henry arrived at his office bright and early. Francis wasn’t in yet, as he preferred to roll out of bed at the crack of noon. It was quiet and Henry took out the pencil and a pad of paper. He looked at the pencil again and then used it to write down 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, and 23. He added the number s up and they equaled 41. Next he assigned each number a letter, a, b, c, e, g, y. Leaning back he pondered his first two attempts, scratched his head, and dismissed them. Twenty minut...

No, of course not, I just really wanted them. The reason that the advertising industry is so successful ...
