Replacement Speaker Boxes #4: Speaker Stands

03-28-2012 03:48 AM by Nighthawk | 1 comment »

Well yes it has been a while since I did anything. But I thought well I better actually start well finish doing the stands since Robbie has actually plumbed our Dishwasher… kinda was the deal. Anyway this is kinda the idea I have been thinking about for a while. Laminated pine to the rimu and cut. Just needs a good sand. Then the base and the top. I do have to make another top plate as the last one was not quite long enough. Anyway it will be sanded and then glued and screwed. We need ...

Replacement Speaker Boxes #3: Sanding done

01-20-2012 10:33 AM by Nighthawk | 1 comment »

Okay finally happy with the sanding of the actual boxes for the speakers and they are now classed as completed to return to the owner for him to do his part. Problem is they don’t look to different from my last blog… but trust me… they are… :-) As the person that I did these for will put the finish coating on, I don’t believe he has decided yet what he is going to do… I thinkk he wants to stain them… haven’t a clue. Final sanding done̷...

Old wooden F-Clamp

01-15-2012 12:07 PM by Nighthawk | 3 comments »

Was given an old wood clamp with a steel runner the other day was a bit worse for wear, it was being thrown out…but but but it is still functionable. Anyway today I decided to give it a bit of a tidy up, I decided instead of replacing the bits I would just sand them as I found out as well the clamp is over 100 years old. So it would be cool to keep the orginal and with its battle scars and all. Before the sanding and re-oil… All I did was give it a light sand including ...

Ancient Bucket Master Class with Stefang #4: Tools complete

02-19-2011 09:55 AM by daltxguy | 6 comments »

Finally back to the shop to finish off the final bits of the plane. I am following Mike's ( stefang) master class on a medieval bucket If you recall, the plane is being created in order to plane the inside of the staves to the curvature of the bucket. As well we need a ‘binding lever’ which will be used to install the willow band around the bucket once completed. Ive chose to pass on the lagging knife. There appear to be other methods available. i might regret this but f...

Ancient Bucket Master Class with Stefang #3: I got sole

02-13-2011 12:21 PM by daltxguy | 6 comments »

Next step of building the plane to be used for planing the inside of the staves to make a wooden bucket – the traditional way. Today, I cleaned up the dowels and pins sticking out – paring it away with a chisel and then I added the sole finally. I used Mike’s (stefang) technique for measuring, marking and chopping out the opening in the sole to fit the curved blade. I don’t know if Mike was kidding when he said he chopped out the 45 degree ramp in the sole in 40 ...

Ancient Bucket Master Class with Stefang #2: Plane body glue up

02-12-2011 09:44 PM by daltxguy | 10 comments »

Some more progress on my plane, which will be used to curve the inside of the staves to form a bucket. I am following stefang's master class on making a bucket using traditional methods I left off here last time Next to make was the crosspin. I chose to make a wooden pin. I don’t have any plug cutters so I did this on my rusty lathe ( forced to sit outside but under cover for space reasons). I sized the middle part to fit inside the plane less 1/16” so it wouldn’t ...

Ancient Bucket Master Class with Stefang #1: DIY convex plane - so far

02-05-2011 12:30 PM by daltxguy | 6 comments »

I am following Stefang’s master class on building a Nordic bucket using the medieval ways The first steps are to make the tools required to make the bucket. The most important tool is a plane to curve the inside of the staves of the the bucket and in true medieval fashion, this is being done with largely hand tools ( ok, and a bandsaw from well into the future). This blog series is to show my progress of the master class. Anyone can follow along and jump in any time to his c...
