Making a Multi-purpose tool - 4 in 1

04-22-2017 10:16 PM by Daniel Solowiej | 8 comments »

Hello everyone ! Here, a marking and routing system concept.I made with hand tools, this multipurpose tool, with the abilities to act as a router, a marking gauge, a scratch stock and a beam compass.I chose to build interchangeable bits, with a modular design using hexagonal double nuts and Allen wrenches, considering that in the future they could also be used in another type of tool. I invite you to watch the video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhPPbvxth18 some screenshots here: ...

Trefoil How-to

04-10-2017 03:20 PM by BanjoBen | 9 comments »

I posted this project over the weekend and got several questions from people about it, so I thought I’d share some of the process in case anyone’s interested. You can find out more about where the object comes from here: http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/summary?doi=10.1.1.314.4240and here:https://arxiv.org/abs/0811.0225Be warned….there’s math in them thar links! The process is pretty straightforward. To begin, I cut bars 1 inch x 1 inch, making sure they ...

Mongo: my first real workbench #5: Completion of the ribs and a start to the aprons

04-10-2017 02:18 PM by TheRiflesSpiral | 0 comments »

This weekend was consumed primarily with installing a dog door and a ceiling/lighting in the breakfast nook off the kitchen of the farmhouse. I did get a couple of hours to steal away to the shop though. “Last picture first” isn’t that what all the cool kids are doing these days? The first order of business was to re-cut the ribs I tried to make on the router table. I used the table saw but I’ve never been very good at (accurate) with a miter gauge nor am I c...

Mongo: my first real workbench #3: A look at joinery

03-30-2017 04:41 PM by TheRiflesSpiral | 7 comments »

As I mentioned before I’m planning to assemble Mongo without fasteners. I’m not exactly schooled in the fine art of joinery but I do watch a fair number of YouTube videos and I’ve been following Chris Hall's excellent work for some time. I appreciate his unique blend of traditional joinery design and modern manufacturing methods. With the top completely laminated and glued to the tool tray, my first bit of joinery will be the ribs that support the top from underneath. The...

Hands-on with the Shaper Origin

03-19-2017 09:43 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 3 comments »

When I was first searching for a CNC to add to my shop, I ran across an odd tool called the Shaper Origin. The tool was in essence a self-correcting router that works like a hand-held CNC machine. I spent some time watching the videos on their site and reading through the blog. It was a novel idea, though it wasn’t quite ready to ship (as I write the the first batch is slated to ship Fall 2017) and not really what I wanted/needed for guitar work. Still, it seemed absolutely incredib...

Heavy Woodworkers Bench #1: Idea for a low cost work bench solution

03-14-2017 04:30 PM by Questtut | 0 comments »

I had been tossing around the thought this I want a better work bench. The problem is, I don’t have much money or time to build one. As a commercial truck driver by trade, I’m only home for a little more than 1 day per week, and much of that time is taken up caring for my kids, house and volunteering in the Scouting Organization. But, like every other wood working enthusiast, I know I need to just make some time to do what I love doing. So on each weekend that I have even just ...

Moberg Tools Small Router Plane Review

03-01-2017 03:26 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 5 comments »

Video link is here if you prefer not to read https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cJsGbmom-g I heard about John Moberg’s tools from a friend of mine who has both his spokeshave and his router plane. I decided to get ahold of the router plane for myself and see what it’s like. The fit and finish is what you’d expect from a handmade tool. This is a user tool not a collector (thought it looks quite awesome in my opinion) It’s similar to a Stanley 271 plane but the &#...

Router Cabinet Redo #3: Base & shelf

02-28-2017 06:02 PM by edwood1975 | 2 comments »

The base is basically a piece of 3/4” poplar plywood with a solid oak edge band that is secured with pocket hole screws and glue. I machined a 3/4” dado 1” up from the bottom of the left, right and back sides and the base just slides in. Before assembly I still need to position the 4 locking casters and glue and screw the the base and shelf into place. The upper shelf is the exactly the same piece as the base except I placed to dado 6” from each side to positi...
