Strip Canoe #2: Stripping Is Done!

02-02-2012 10:58 PM by Philip "Pip" Storm | 13 comments »

I have the stripping done. So, I thought I’d share some pics. The pics get better. I promise. I had a difficult time making the transition from vertical to horizontal across the stem. It felt to me like the stem form was getting in the way. When I referred back to Mr. Gilpatrick’s book He stated that this may happen and if so do some trimming. There we go! The transition was still a bit of a bear. Three hands and plenty of screws required...

Replacement Speaker Boxes #3: Sanding done

01-20-2012 10:33 AM by Nighthawk | 1 comment »

Okay finally happy with the sanding of the actual boxes for the speakers and they are now classed as completed to return to the owner for him to do his part. Problem is they don’t look to different from my last blog… but trust me… they are… :-) As the person that I did these for will put the finish coating on, I don’t believe he has decided yet what he is going to do… I thinkk he wants to stain them… haven’t a clue. Final sanding done̷...

My Home Made Thickness Sander #2: Testing The Drum

01-19-2012 06:06 AM by lew | 4 comments »

After building the drum, a test was in order. After all, if this part didn’t run true there was no sense in moving forward.Using a piece of Corian, the motor and drum were clamped down in position. The motor is a 120v 1/3 HP motor salvaged out of our old furnace. The belt is the one from my table saw- a link belt replaced it. With some anxiousness, power was applied. Holy Cow, It Worked!! The pulley ratio is about 1:1.5- the drum being larger- so the speed of the drum is slightl...

Okay so it’s not a woodworking tool box, but it does have a wooden scroll saw nametag. The story goes like this, Hayden (or is online name Hayd3n) a good friend who has helped me on a few projects (coffin , speakers for example) and will be helping on a few more soon like a couple of bed end trunks. He has also helps me organise the basement a little, and the ongoing joke is he is building his shop in my basement… Anyway, he is young and doesn’t have a lot of tools of hi...

Old wooden F-Clamp

01-15-2012 12:07 PM by Nighthawk | 3 comments »

Was given an old wood clamp with a steel runner the other day was a bit worse for wear, it was being thrown out…but but but it is still functionable. Anyway today I decided to give it a bit of a tidy up, I decided instead of replacing the bits I would just sand them as I found out as well the clamp is over 100 years old. So it would be cool to keep the orginal and with its battle scars and all. Before the sanding and re-oil… All I did was give it a light sand including ...

Palm boxes #2: Re glueing, sanding, and finishing

01-11-2012 10:35 AM by Sanman | 2 comments »

So I had to wait another day after re glueing my palm box back together. After I got the clamps and tape off, this is what I was faced with. I don’t like sanding glue. Ok, one step back, now two steps forward. After Re sanding the lid, several times, I have everything attached and working again. There is still a hair line fracture visible after the clean up. The lid is working much better. It even stops halfway back instead of flopping all the way open. I...
