CLAMP FOR MY BIESMEYER FENCE UNDER CONSTRUCTION

03-27-2012 01:07 AM by Metrotek | 1 comment »

Greetings to all once again; I am attaching photos of the clamp for my new Biesmeyer style fence that is under construction. It came out fairly well.The circular pads are adjustable by carriage bolts threaded in to t-nuts to correct any undesired angularity. The ¾” dowel is a plunger that the cam pushes to lock the fence in place. The two piece pad that the dowel pushes will have an elastomer sandwiched between the pieces to provide a spring action so the cam can over clamp it...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #652: The Sands of Time

03-26-2012 09:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Most woodworkers that I talk to don’t like sanding. Of the many steps in the process of doing a woodworking project, I think I am pretty safe in saying that it is the least liked part. In fact, I am amazed at the number of people who spend hours on a project that simply skip over the sanding step completely. I don’t always understand why they would do that. While it may not be the most pleasant part of making a project, it is among the most important in most things that we cre...

Intarsia Basics #1: Introduction and Invitation to All.

03-18-2012 10:53 PM by KoryK | 41 comments »

Hello to all and all are Welcome, Intro: Hi, my name is Kory Kiker and a couple of weeks ago Ms. Debbie contacted me about conducting an online class for those interested in learning the art of intarsia. I was very excited about the chance to share a few things I have learned in the last three years of doing intarsia art. Before intarsia I did a lot of wood carving so I hope this helps give each project more depth and definition. I will tell you now that most of the things I’ve lear...

Electric Bass Guitar.. #2: Contouring... or shaping the body...

03-15-2012 07:05 AM by degoose | 19 comments »

As you will see from the following pics the back of the body of the guitar blank has been scarfed out with the bandsaw.. this is for comfort when the guitar is tilted out from the guitarist When played the contour would be at the back of the guitar and to the top… I know I am preaching to the choir but some of my readers are even less knowledgeable than me… Using a ROS and 80 grit the contour is smoothed and shaped for comfort… Sanding willcontinue through to 220 grit....

Hello World ! (a restoration job) #1: Dresser restoration part 1

03-09-2012 07:11 AM by raydizzle | 1 comment »

So this is my first blog post on this site, and first woodworking project since high school (which I graduated in 2008). I quit college to pursue a bigger passion of mine, which was woodworking. I absolutely loved my wood shop classes in high school. And after going through a couple years or college, I decided that web design was not something I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Sitting behind a desk and computer screen all day writing out code, fixing problems for websites that never see...

The real cost of making a pen

03-06-2012 06:10 PM by PanamaJack | 4 comments »

I’m frequently asked, “What does it actually cost to make a pen?” (Mostly at arts and craft shows I am attending or participating in.) (I keep a copy at all art shows now) Here’s the list of items that I use to make a pen. The good news is that after the first pen you make they become much less expensive. Some of these items can be eliminated or something else can be substituted for what is listed. If you already have a table saw, or band saw, a drill press or other items the initial ...

In the zone

No new pictures today! I spent the day in the shop sanding the 30 stiles, four legs, two narrow rails and two wide rails on the bed today. I have a set of hearing protection that hooks into my mp3 player and it makes sanding go so much faster. 80 grit done today and I will knock out 150 grit tomorrow along with a once over with 220 grit on a sanding block to remove the little circles that the random orbiting sander leaves behind. The spindles are only an inch apart on the foot and head boards...

To Festool or not to festool…

03-05-2012 05:10 AM by thiswoodshop | 22 comments »

The question on my mind the last couple of weeks is the one of sanders. Sanders sound like such an easy thing to go out and get. Don’t get me wrong, the Ryobe sanders that I have is just awesome and they do a great jobs for the price I payed for them. But Dust is becoming my enemy and it is winning the battle at this present moment. So many a little inside to my insane obsession with dust, it was never a real problem, I just grew on a respirator and i was good to go. Lately the littl...
