Simple Decorative Shelf

11-03-2015 07:32 PM by PCorl | 0 comments »

I have just built a simple decorative shelf. I used a sliding dovetail to connect the top to the base. This was a learning opportunity for me because I had never made a sliding dovetail joint. I have uploaded the video and you can view it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSv-6Xq-liE

Shop stuff #12: Fitting the book matched maple panel bottom

11-12-2015 09:18 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I am slowly catching up with editing and posting video. The bit that broke in the previous video makes its first cut and I get to use the Record 078 plane for the first time. It will take some time to get better at it, but practice, practice, practice is the way to go. I have at least a couple more videos to go on this one. I hope you enjoy it. https://youtu.be/zNOBI-wHJg0

Butterfly Dining Table #4: Base Details and Base Assembly

11-16-2015 12:16 AM by Guy Dunlap | 3 comments »

In this video, I show how I plan to use sliding dovetails for the mid span dividers, which also will house the sliding parts for the top, and then cut the sliding dovetails and make the dividers. Then I cut the slots in the end rails for the slides and glue up the end assemblies, which I might add was a grueling experience I hope I never put myself through again! I cut out the joinery for the lower rail that will connect the two curved rails and tie the whole thing together. It’s sta...

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #4: Walnut Inlays

11-28-2015 03:45 AM by JimYoung | 3 comments »

I’ve got a few days off for the holidays, and i’ve been able to get a little more work done on my desk project. I’ve been trying to figure out what type and color wood I want for the inlays and accent pieces. After talking with the guys at the local woodcraft, I picked up some trans tint 0 black dye, a chunk of walnut and some walnut veneers. I played around with these (and after dying my hand black, be careful with this stuff), but did not like the pitch black look. A f...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #4: First cut of the demo video shot this week.

07-18-2009 09:11 AM by degoose | 19 comments »

You guys are seeing this video while it is still in the editing stage,, no voice over but there will be.Hope you see the versatility and adaptability of the wee beastie. If you have any questions , I will be happy to answer them and If I don’t know will find out. This was a nearly 400 meg video.. but by splitting and compressing to Mp4 got it down to a fairly acceptable size. I have 117 small segments that deal with things like adjustment and fitting of various attachments for those wh...

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...

Taiko Drums

11-10-2012 12:20 AM by TerryDowning | 1 comment »

I do a lot of volunteering for our local High School Marching Band. The theme of our 2012 show is “Samurai, The Way Of The Warrior” Last spring it was decided we really needed some traditional Japanese Taiko Drums to really make the effect. Taiko Drums typically cost thousands of dollars each. So, some of our parents started doing some research http://www.stanford.edu/group/stanfordtaiko/manual/index.html and we built them ourselves (only hundreds each now). Here is a ...

Pie Safe #4: More Progress

01-26-2013 04:09 PM by scamp238 | 0 comments »

I have been busy working and my daughter has ben busy with school, so we haven’t had much time to spend on this. We have made some progress though. A little each week. She has cut and shapeed the handles with the router. Finished all the doors. She sprayed the whole thing down with strong tea to add tannins to the pine. We used this ammonia. We sealed it in the shower with the ammoina overnight. We pulled it out and looked at it. I was pleased. ...

Pet Peeve - 1

12-30-2009 06:19 PM by richgreer | 16 comments »

Whenever you buy a router, table saw, lathe and some other tools, it is common to get one or more wrenches for changing bits, blades, chucks, ... These tend to be some of the cheapest most poorly made wrenches I have ever seen. The wrenches that came with my lathe literally spread further open when I applied moderate pressure, making them completely worthless. I had to spend over an hour with a Dremel grinder to correct problems with the wrench that removes my arbor nut on my table s...

Harbor Freight Dovertail Jig

05-12-2011 12:18 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 9 comments »

Got this Dovetail Jig at Harbor Freight in Harrisburg (PA). They don’t have it at my Pittsburgh HF. It looks like a beefier model than the one that I have seen elsewhere on the Internet. The template is solid aluminum not plastic like in the older model. Assembly was trivial – just screw in levers. Unit is nearly identical to this one (better manual for this one). Amazon of the “other one”.
