Toy gun with working trigger

01-14-2017 10:42 PM by ShaunMeighan | 0 comments »

Hello again folks! This weekend’s project was a toy gun, but I wanted to make the trigger click back after being fired. To accomplish this, I used a simple rubber band! The main shape was cut out using a Shapeoko 3 CNC machine. Enjoy! View on YouTubeuTube

Shop storage projects #5: Dungeon Shop Remodel, Stage 3, and....

01-08-2017 10:24 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

A bit of woodworking, too. Was at a standstill on moving things around, decided to at least start on the chest of drawers build. I had an old pine 4×4 in the shop. Decided I could resaw it down for a few parts. Trying to get a few 4/4 by 2” wide blanks made up. Once those were resawn, I had to plane them smooth and square, well, at least ONE was done. I also set up a fancy plane, to do a bit of molding work on the now squared up blank… A Stanley No.45, with tha...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #82: It's been a while!

12-27-2016 01:06 PM by PhilBello | 3 comments »

I hope everyone had a Festive Christmas, and I wish everyone a very Happy and Prosperous New Year! I didn’t realise quite how long I had been out of the game, until today. I seem to have spent all my time with Medical Specialists. I have had the operation on my right knee, and that is progressing nicely, at least I am no longer walking with a stick. Unfortunately the second spinal block, did not work on my back, so what happens next, I have no idea, and I am also waiting to see if th...

Acoustic Instruments #4: Marimba Tune Time

12-23-2016 11:45 PM by johnstoneb | 4 comments »

I have all Christmas presents ready and time to work on the Marimba again.When I left last I had moved the lower keyboard over an 1 1/2 for clearance. After final tune and drilling the keys I didn’t like the gap so I moved everything back an 1 1/4. It looks way better. I applied one coat of lacquer. The old adjustment The final. Keys are closer to the upper frame and just looks better. I need to quit over thinking these things. Time to rough tune the keys. the keys were ...

Mixer stand build #2: Legs and "joinery"

12-06-2016 02:55 PM by Lalen | 3 comments »

Tapering of the legs went pretty well. The tapering jig in the last post failed a little because all I had done is shoot brad nails in the cross braces. ( Duh!) had to reset the angle and re-cut a few sides but not too bad. (lesson #1: secure the jig!) Since this was a 4 side taper, I cut 2 sides, then used the off-cut as a wedge to fill the gap when I cut the other 2 sides. I cut the notch (dado?) for the shelf in my table saw sled before I did the taper so it would be perpendicular ...

Making wooden dowel with a router #2: How it is done

12-05-2016 11:24 PM by Pjonesy | 8 comments »

A few people have asked for more information so here goes. Use a piece of scrap timber preferably hardwood about 100mm (4”) x 45mm wide (1 3/4) x 20mm thick (3/4”).For 1/8” dowel bore a 9/64” (1/8” is to tight) hole straight through the length approximately in the centre, then cut a notch 3/4” wide and 1” from the end. This is the gap for the straight cut router bit This notch only needs to go slightly past the back edge of the 9/64” hole.Now b...

Mixer stand build #1: Getting Started: Legs and top

12-05-2016 02:42 PM by Lalen | 0 comments »

Yep, using soft pine. Not confident enough yet to spend the $ on hardwood. This could just end up being a prototype if I don’t like how it finishes but it wont be used for chopping. Updated Plan Gluing up the legs: Taper Jig ready (haven’t made it adjustable yet) Gluing up the top. Need some shorter pipes for my pipe clamps. 5’ pipe clamps on a 16.5” wide top. “ha!” but I needed their strength.. Top ended up with a slight twi...

Making wooden dowel with a router #1: How to make your own dowel

12-05-2016 06:39 AM by Pjonesy | 4 comments »

I have recently started a new project that requires walnut dowel so I set about coming up with an idea to make perfect dowel every time.The video shows my router clamped upside down in the wood vise and the square piece of walnut being fed through a neat fitting hole while being spun at high speed with a drill.The secret is to have a neat fitting entry hole before the straight cut router cutter and an exit hole after the cutter that is 1/64” bigger than the size of dowel that is require...
