Making Carbide Tool Bar Handles

02-02-2013 09:04 PM by socrbent | 2 comments »

In the spirit of giving back to all you LJ’s who have inspired and informed me, here is an attempt to share the making of 4 tool bar handles. My wife gave me four 1/2” tool bars and 12 carbide cutters for Christmas from my wish list. Wanted to try some Easy Wood carbide type tools at a reasonable price level. To hold the cost down my wish list specified bars and cutters from Big Guy Productions and then turn my own handles for them. Step 1 – Turn HandlesThe project star...

Plywood template-cut rocking bench. #2: The sealer is on, brace added to the back rest.

01-27-2013 06:45 PM by Fridgecritter | 3 comments »

The bench is almost done! I added another plywood layer to each of the legs for support, and I added an accent piece to the back of the back rest for decoration and support. I had to counter-sink the holes on the sides of the bench where the threaded rod spans the length of the bench because the rod wasn’t long enough to protrude beyond the added layer of ply. I also decided to route the edges of the legs, both on the outer and inner radius’. I really like the back accent piece...

I have been busy working and my daughter has ben busy with school, so we haven’t had much time to spend on this. We have made some progress though. A little each week.

We sealed it in the shower with the ammoina overnight. We pulled it out and looked at it. I was pleased. ...

Checkerboard Project #6: Back On Track

01-25-2013 06:49 AM by Retsof | 4 comments »

I gave up on finishing this checkerboard project in time for Christmas, and then I was out of commission with a bad chest cold for another three weeks. Once I was back to 100%, I got to work finishing my White Oak Bookcase project. Now it’s time I got this one back on track. The last thing I had done on this project was to glue up all the squares for the top. I did half of the board at a time and then used my biscuit joiner to join the two sections together. I put in some time ...

Safety (or the lack thereof) #2: Fixing what I broke...finishing the exploded bowl.

01-19-2013 09:20 PM by PASs | 1 comment »

In the first post in this series I showed the small bowl that came off the lathe at 1300 RPM.The blank wasn’t too damaged, so I reglued it and finished it.Finished project. The regluing went so well that I didn’t have to return the face of the bowl, I just sanded it to get the glue off, then a coat of 2# shellac buffed off while wet with an old T-shirt.1. back on the lathe with safety cage in place. 2. shellac on the front. 3. getting ready to round the corners off…...

Tip of the day! Use a push stick!

01-17-2013 02:59 PM by OregonBurls | 32 comments »

THE ART OF NOT TAKING A TRIP TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM!Yesterday I awoke out of my daze of admiring a quilted maple block with a shocking sensation and blood everywhere. The dull blade on my bandsaw did not help and using my hands to push the beautiful block through didn’t help either. Simple word of advise which many of you can attest too. Keep your tools sharp and use a push stick! Lets say it all together now! Keep your tools sharp and use a push stick!Keep your tools sharp and ...

Building of my 8 inch wheel drum sander.

01-15-2013 04:54 AM by Ken90712 | 11 comments »

Recently a couple of buddies on here asked where I had been lately. Well, between the sports and military and work I finally tore my knee up and needed a little maintenance. Six weeks with no weight on it left me sitting on my behind dreaming of getting back in the shop. I have a close friend named Paul, who is an amazing machinist & welder. He is the one that taught me to weld. This allowed me to make my outdoor dining table that I have posted on here. We were talking one day about ...

giving of the ornaments

01-14-2013 04:13 PM by Jim Earl | 2 comments »

this is the 4th year I have made Christmas tree ornaments, and given them to the elementry schools in my area. This year was one of the most gratifications I had ever recieved. The ladies in the School office insisted I go around to esch class and give them out. I got the idea from my younger Grand Kiids. These are about 3” – 6” tall, blanks, and ready for the kids to paint them as they want. each year the kids get more and more greatful for them and write me cards from each...

Living Room Display Shelves #1: "The old cliche about the devil"

01-14-2013 04:24 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 3 comments »

The devil is in the details. That’s especially true for an impatient lout like me. When it’s close to being done, I want it done now! I decided to work backwards. My shelves are going to be surrounded by the same style of trim I made for my home. I decided to use a little facetted rossette pattern in the major areas. I’ll let you see for yourself a little further down. I started with solid cherry flooring – $1.00 a foot. I had to strip the finish with a belt sand...
