1604 days ago by NBeener | 27 comments »

So … among my 3,000 eye problems is intermittent double vision. But … I don’t think that’s the problem, here. I seek the expert counsel of the venerated and revered LumberJocks: IS IT just me …. ?? Tenons are better the second time around!! Incidentally, I occasionally do more than just clean my shop :-) Cheers, All!

I am building this for a friend Over Seas. Her name is Ines so that is what this is named also. The ” Lazy Ines ”. It ought to be fun to finish. I do not have a thickness planer so it has been all Hand Planers. Also the edges are being rounded out by hand with a rasp. You really appreciate the work when you have limited tools!!!!

Sanders

1612 days ago by kosta | 3 comments »

There are basically 3 sizes of sanders hand sanders, benchtop sanders, and stationary sanders. Hand sanders include palm sanders, random orbit sanders or ROS, detail sanders, and belt sanders.

Shopsmith Mk V #1: First Impressions

1612 days ago by NedB | 13 comments »

A little history, set your wayback machine all the way back to 1974, I went to the mall where my mom worked one weekend, and there was this guy, he had the coolest machine and he was making all this stuff with just that one machine! that’s my rough approximation of when I first learned about the Shopsmith. I bugged my parents for years following that, I just ‘knew’ that I could so so much really cool stuff if I had one. Forward to this past summer. My uncle decides he ...

A journey into the workshop. #46: More progress on the kitty grave marker.

1615 days ago by dbhost | 2 comments »

I tried keeping it as simple as possible, and worked the best I could to make the grain complimentary, and this is what I have been able to come up with. What you see here will NOT be what is all visible above ground. Remember I have dot have something sunk into the concrete footer right? The design is pretty simple.
