Third Project - Table and Chairs

02-03-2017 05:03 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 2 comments »

Thanks to DanK for checking in on me from time to time. Its been a slowwwww project but I’m happy to say it is near completion! I’m pretty sure almost a year. Admittedly I believe I took on more than my skill could handle but WOW did I learn A LOT. My collaborator (the mom of the kids I built it all for) has yet to paint the table and legs but I’m assured she will by tomorrow. The kids have seen it and they are absolutely excited! :) Giants fans may recognize some co...

Musical Instruments #7: The Resonators and completion

01-29-2017 02:56 PM by johnstoneb | 4 comments »

I put the final tune on the resonators. This took a little while and a lot of miles. Temperature plays a lot in the tune of this instrument. We have had an unusually cool winter I kept the resonators in the house and carried each to the shop sanded a little then walked back in the house checked the tune then repeated.

Shop storage projects #16: Top is done....

01-27-2017 12:17 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

So, I am getting close to drawer building time? Ok, decided a 2 hour tour today would be about all this old body could handle….Started to build the frame for the top….had a few things to “finesse” first. One end of the long rail was a bit too thick…..marked out where to remove the excess wood….bandsaw to remove the worst and a plane to smooth things out. The mitre cuts were a bit off, re-did those, and made sure the rails matched each other. I f...

My dust colection set-up

01-23-2017 04:48 PM by Blake Haskins | 2 comments »

as woodworkers, we strive for the best dust collection possible, well maybe no the best but enough that our machines will work. I’ve seen many videos of people showing their set-up, however I haven’t found one similar to mine, so hear is my video.— https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXC0T1fUDOo

Hello again folks! This weekend’s project was a toy gun, but I wanted to make the trigger click back after being fired. To accomplish this, I used a simple rubber band! The main shape was cut out using a Shapeoko 3 CNC machine. Enjoy! View on YouTubeuTube

The Ultimate Vice Jaws

01-07-2017 10:46 PM by ShaunMeighan | 4 comments »

Hi all! I’ve recently made myself a set of jaws for my engineering vice to make it more usable for woodworking. These jaws increase the surface area contacting the workpiece and adds pieces of leather for extra grip. I’m very happy with how they turned out and would love to know what you think of them!

01-05-2017 02:39 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well really two stages today….the main event was this afternoon. Then I went back down to do a wee bit more, as a stage 2….....didn’t quite work out. Leg was having issues towards the end. Sitting here with an ice pack on the leg, and a Norco pill in me. Anyway…here we go…. I removed the brace till from it’s perch, and placed the electric grinder in it’s place. I needed a couple other toys to move aside….and then try to remove the...
