tool rebuilding day #1: saws,planes, and chisels....

02-05-2016 06:19 AM by bandit571 | 8 comments »

Not sure who will actually read this blog….some seem to think all I can do is stuff like this.. Some cheap little saw shaped object, not worthy of serious concideration..More on the handle, later. Build either building tools, or rehabbing tools since High School…..must have done one decently in shop class.. Whatever lathe they had back then, there was even a metal lathe, along with a few for turning wood. Black tape is to improve the grip. parts came in this week, som...

Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.

Cocobolo and Leopardwood Table : Process pics. #2: Apron Panels and a Start to the Legs

02-01-2016 04:12 PM by jeth | 5 comments »

Hello all, things have been deathly quiet on the first installment of this blog, which I started due to interest on the project I posted here. Having started, I should go on, so in this post I’ll show how the remaining veneered panels for the table aprons and the legs came together. Here is the substrate for one of the small side apron panels being planed up, with the thick re-sawn veneer that would be stuck to it. The substrate is a piece of Primavera and I did not back it with a ...

Cocobolo and Leopardwood Table : Process pics. #1: Veneered Panels/Framing the Top

02-01-2016 05:12 AM by jeth | 0 comments »

Hello all, I had a couple of peeps interested in seeing the process shots of the Cocobolo and Leopardwood table with drawer that I posted, so I thought I’ll blog it here split into a few parts so nobody has to scroll through it all in one go… You can see the finished project here. I don’t have a shot of the small Cocobolo board I was given that inspired this table before I started cutting it up but it was a couple of board feet. There was a lovely rich heartwood section d...

Shop stuff #34: The final episode

01-26-2016 09:08 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

I finally got around to editing and completing the video series on the essential oil cabinet that I made for my son for Christmas. Lightworks is still a bit of a chore and will be for a while yet, but it is not locking up and being frustrating like Windows Movie Maker was. I still have a long way to go, but it is fun learning. My son liked the cabinet and most people who have laid eyes on it do to. It was a big complex job and I find that shooting video while working makes it go almost ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #69: Towel Rack

01-26-2016 01:04 AM by PhilBello | 6 comments »

The weather here in Colombia is such that, even when it is winter it remains at least warm, we have no heating, and drying clothes, bedding etc. is no problem, we have a covered drying area outside, but after a shower, my towel until now, has been draped over anything available upstairs, where it has dried but looked unsightly, it was time to do something about it. I pondered on design, as I had some 1”dowel and plywood, but in the end went with trusty 2×4!! For the first time I...

Double Single Bed #5: Bed Bolts & Final Assembly

01-25-2016 02:55 PM by ttocsmi | 0 comments »

With the dry-fit of the headboards complete, it was time to drill holes for the bed bolts. (Sorry, no pictures. I’m sure you can imagine what holes look like.) The 3/8 inch holes through the posts were done earlier on the drill press (see part #3). Two were off-center by about 1/16 inch, but the rest were spot-on. To bore into the rails, I set up the mini-jig below for each joint. The rail is held in place using some scrap 4×4 and clamps. The shoulders are flush with t...

Shop stuff #32: That brown truck came again

01-18-2016 10:05 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

A while ago I redeemed some of my points at the “Be The Pro” forum and this is opening the package. Just a short one, using Lightworks as an editor for the first time. It may be more software than I need, but over time I am sure I will get used to it. I struggle with learning software and I relied a lot on the instructional videos that Lightworks has on it’s sight. I had to view things 3 or 4 times before it sunk in. Movie Maker was nice and easy to use but without supp...

Custom baby gates

01-12-2016 04:59 PM by Justin | 3 comments »

After shopping for gates to corral our 11-month old crawler, my wife and I decided none of the available products provided the features we wanted. We also found the better units to be quite expensive. I began to think the “universal” nature of these things was limiting their ability to be very good at anything. Lots have a crossbar to trip over, others have strange latches, and none seemed like something we wanted to spend a bunch of money on. I spent some time in SolidWorks...
