A Parrot IS NOT an Eagle!

05-18-2009 07:05 PM by robbinscabin | 9 comments »

As usual, LumberJocks has shown an interest for the photos that we really don’t want to share! So, I reluctantly post this first sad attempt of an Eagle here…NOT in my projects. I do agree with my hubby that Eagle #2 is much better! Oooh, I hate it when he’s right! ;~)

No one had the right guess last month, so I will use the same spoon. If you check back and...

Interpreting Design #2: Jewelry Box- Rustic

05-03-2009 09:29 PM by DocT | 3 comments »

Here is my first completed interpretation of our jewelry box project. I decided to start with a refined rustic aesthetic (one of my favorites). The best part – it didn’t cost a dime…everything here came from the firewood pile! By refined rustic, I am referring to a design movement at home in more than just log cabins. It incorporates live-edge and/or log as an accent. The amount of “rustic” can vary from a subtle surprise to an overt theme. I am currently enamored with live-edge m...

Treadle Lathe workbench #10: framing for drawers and cabinet......

04-21-2009 04:27 AM by jth2bmtsu | 6 comments »

Since I haven’t ever built drawers, it will be interesting to see if my design works. I used some scrap 1×2’s and 1×1s for the drawers railing. Essentially I placed rails for the drawers to slide on and rails on the sides for to keep the drawers sliding straight. It may be difficult to see in the pics but the drawers are deeper than the cabinet to allow room for the treadle arc. See the pics below for more details.Front view!drawer railing close-updrawer railing close-up...

04-11-2009 02:57 AM by jth2bmtsu | 3 comments »

Worked a few random hours the last few days and made pretty good progress. My little brother even got motivated today and whipped out some pretty nice work. We have been working on the tension wheel, headstock, tool rack and hardwood work surface.making of the tension wheel.As in the above pics, the tension wheel is a simple design but should serve the purpose intended (prevent slipping of the drive belt).Headstock. Still have some work to do but the sealed ball bearings and axle are assemble...

Treadle Lathe workbench #7: finally the workbench is recognizable....

04-09-2009 03:25 AM by jth2bmtsu | 1 comment »

Over the past few days, my brother and I have worked more on the workbench portion of the project. We framed out the bottom shelf and framed out the workbench top. We used some scrap 2×4’s to do the framing and some scrap plywood for the surface. Eventually, the plywood work surface will be covered with oak. We are still debating the best way to weld the crank together but I want to make sure everything fits and is functional first. The next step to tackle is the tension wheel, hea...

Treadle Lathe workbench #6: it spins.... and has a pedal...

04-07-2009 02:55 AM by jth2bmtsu | 4 comments »

Well since last post we attached massive reclaimed 2×6 supports to handle the axle. The axle (3/8” piping) is recieved by the floor flange on each side of the flywheel. The crank arm is then assembled as shown in the pics. We then constructed a pedal from scrap 2×4’s and some plywood and secured it to the frame by metal piping to allow it to pivot freely.After assembling the wheel/ crank and pedal system we got er spinning pretty good. Somewhere in the range of 2-3 revol...
