A Tale of 3 Routers

01-08-2010 04:04 PM by David Craig | 13 comments »

Today is payday and I have put off new tool purchases over the holidays so that there was room in the budget for a decent Christmas for the kids and so dad is going to pick up a router, one he probably should have picked up in the first place :) Two years ago, a friend takes me to Harbor Freight and I see a 1 3/4 HP plunge router ON SALE (took me a bit to realize that these things are ALWAYS on sale) for about 40 dollars. Impulse buy later and I am playing around with the router down the ...

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.. #12: 3-D carving.

08-24-2009 10:19 AM by degoose | 16 comments »

This weekend just gone we did a little bit of 3-D carving.I think we were a little adventurous and we were only moderately successful. Did not really have the right cutters but over all I think It came out fair to muddling. I made a blank out of plywood glued up.. 400 mm by 400 mm by 70 odd mm thick, and used a sun face for the template.Spent a lot of the time scarfing out the waste .. would have been better gluing up a pyramid…. you will figure this out from the photos. [ lucky we had ...

Time to build a medicine cabinet.

05-05-2010 12:37 AM by Blinky | 3 comments »

I’m hoping to get a medicine cabinet built in very near future. I have the design in my head. Bought an old medicine cabinet with a really nice etched mirror & beveled glass. Then found another one, bigger.Anyway, I’m thinking I’ll build the door around the mirror size, & the cabinet to fit the door size. It will be built flush against wall above sink, with simple moulding that matches the woodwork throughout the house. I wish I knew Sketchup better. It’...

Toy Trucks Build #2: Detail Milling of Chassis

02-17-2014 03:59 AM by HerbC | 1 comment »

Back to working on the trucks. I know some of you thought I’d already bailed out, but not this time. As I said in my last blog post, I needed to build a small sled for my table saw. I finished it today. My first swing at making a sled bombed because the plywood (Hm Dpt 1/2” Sandply…) was slightly warped and it wouldn’t relax and lay flat on the table saw… So I laminated three pieces of 3/16” tempered hardboard (aka Masonite). I used the table saw top as ...

Walnut kitchen countertop #6: applying finish

02-14-2014 01:36 AM by harum | 0 comments »

Have tried two wood stains from Minwax on a scrap piece of walnut: “special walnut” and “golden oak”. I guess they may differ on other wood species or maybe they age differently, but right now look exactly the same after a week or so on walnut. After trying a few options for edges, I selected a simple 1/8” roundover. Anyway, I routed grooves for a miter bolt on both glue-ups, stained them and will apply Waterlox tomorrow. The stained ...

Woodworking Knowledge #2: Ever Wonder How To...

04-24-2008 12:39 PM by flink | 3 comments »

Many excellent woodworking videos. I stumbled on this link for this site on Reddit.com, from a posted link on creating a solar furnace from coke cans (that garage gets cold in the winter). Once I found the tool stuff, this is the first video that caught my eye: Cutting Inlayed Dovetails using the Leigh D4, by Al Navas I have a D4, but haven’t tried doing anything fancy yet, but maybe at lunchtime…. The tutorial is three videos. I also noticed David Marks and Wood Wh...
