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 ...

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...

Moving right along

03-04-2012 01:15 AM by T. D. Reid | 3 comments »

Yesterday I was able to get the four rails for the head and foot boards sanded down to the correct thickness along with a rabbit to hold the stiles. Then I cut the tenons on the rails and cut a test mortise for the legs. Today I put six hours in the shop and got the mortises cut on the legs along with a dry fit. I cut the tenons for the first 15 stiles for the head board. I will get the other 15 tenons cut on the stiles for the foot board and then will start sanding all of these pieces so th...

CHECK OUT THIS FIXTURE FOR ANGLES

02-29-2012 01:55 PM by Metrotek | 4 comments »

I came across this cool angle fixture as they are characterizing it but it has far more potential than just this; I see it as an angle tool for all sorts of applications. At the very least I hope it is inspiring to others.http://airfieldmodels.com/information_source/how_to_articles_for_model_builders/tools/magnetic_building_board/variable_angle_fixtures.htm

Homemade thickness sander #1: #1 The idea is born

02-26-2012 09:00 AM by usnret | 4 comments »

So I have wanted a thickness sander or drum sander, what ever you call it, for a while. Well I found a free treadmill on Craigslist. I salvaged a lot of the parts from the TM. I have the motor 95vdc, the belt rollers, the raising mechanism, the dampening mechanism, and the motor controller board. Now as for the design I am stuck on here. First I have to see if the motor controller even works so I have to build a PWM to controll it. The real decision is do i use the DC motor and steel ...
