Instruments #1: Archtop Guitar

08-28-2016 06:17 PM by RonPeters | 6 comments »

Looks as if I can’t make furniture like the rest of you folks… I’m forever stuck making instruments… This guitar took me two years to make partly because I started from scratch. No molds or jigs so I had to make them. I got the bug to try an archtop because 1. play guitar, 2. always wanted one, 3. it costs a lot less to just go out an buy one ready made. Here’s the process beginning to the end. Layout Transfer to wood blank At...

Xmasis Sharpening Stones

08-23-2016 02:54 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I have been looking for a set of sharpening stones for a while now. They are usually very expensive and definitely out of my price range. A new maker is on the block and making a name for themselves. These stones have two grits, 1000/3000, and fit into a nice base with feet on it to help hold it in place. The one thing I like about these stones is that they are wide enough to sharpen a plane iron. I have sharpened many cutting edges already and it isn’t showing any wear like two of my o...

Quick Tip #3: Center/Offset Marking Tool

08-12-2016 04:02 PM by Kent Shepherd | 2 comments »

Accurate, clean marks are critical to any fine woodworking project. For years my marking tool arsenal consisted of a tape measure and a pencil, sometimes sharp (maybe). To mark the center of a board edge was hit or miss—mostly miss! As my quality progressed, so did my need for accurate ways to mark. How can you cut it or drill it right if you don’t start with a proper starting point. For the last few years I have been on the look-out for anything that would help achieve that. Not ...

Quick Tip #1: Quick Corners

08-01-2016 03:42 PM by Kent Shepherd | 10 comments »

Often some of the handiest ideas are so simple we all think—why didn’t I think of that! A while back I ordered a set of these “Quick Corners” from Woodcraft. http://www.woodcraft.com/product/124220/quick-corner-four-pack.aspx I have found them very useful several times, In the past, like most of you I was looking all over the shop for something with the right radius to mark a rounded corner. Usually it was a can of putty, or maybe a paint can or anything round. Thes...

Blogging instead of Woodworking #22: Favorite Plastic Shop Gadgets

06-28-2016 09:15 PM by Douglas | 0 comments »

I did a little review of a few plastic gadgets I have and use in my shop. I cover the GluBot, the Preppin’ Weapon, and the Grr-ripper. These all fall under the category of “should have turned out to be junky plastic crap, but weren’t”. Let me know what you think… http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2016/6/28/favorite-plastic-shop-gadgets

Big Changes to the YouTube Channel!

06-28-2016 01:56 PM by Woodworker_Collins | 0 comments »

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7WtAFzQIVU So in the last month I realised that I needed to get my YouTube act together. I want to strive towards and to do this I realised I need to become more consistent and put my effort into social media! I want to aim towards at least a video every 2 weeks if not weekly while also putting more effort into the editing of the videos themselves. But I need your help, your sharing, commenting, rating and most importantly subscribing helps grow my...

New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #2: Restore & Install biesemeyer fence on the BandSaw

06-28-2016 04:48 AM by MikesProjects | 2 comments »

Be sure to check out the first part of this series where I get the saw & refurbish it… The old biesemeyer fence I am using was originally off a powermatic table saw. The shop I got it from had it set up on a saw that was used strictly for running dados. For that they cut the rails short & it only had a 18” rip capacity which worked out great for this bandsaw because I would have felt bad having to cut the rails down my self. I always feel bad modifying old vintage stuff, I...

New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #1: rust removal on cast iron top & refurbish action multiple videos

06-28-2016 04:03 AM by MikesProjects | 8 comments »

Video links below… Recently I purchased an older 20” bandsaw. I need a larger bandsaw that can handle anything I throw at it.. I think I found that in a mid 70’s Rockwell 20” wood cutting bandsaw. It probably came out of a school wood shop. The motor is 2hp, it has two speeds which can be adjusted with the belt, it has already been upgraded with carter guides, this big boy saw weighs over 600 lbs. I made several videos regarding this saw which i’ll post below. ...
