Making a dust hood for my Ridgid oscillating sander

01-12-2010 05:50 PM by SimonSKL | 17 comments »

After reading many favorable reviews of the Ridgid oscillating sander (model # EB44242) and with a 15% rebate offered by the manufacturer, I finally bought this sander as my Christmas present. The more I use it the more I like the sander. I would have given it a 5 star rating if it has better dust collection capability when the belt sander is used. The dust just got collected at the end of the belt and landed all over the floor. I thought there must be a better way to collect the dust. Here i...

Shaker Oval Boxes #1: A whole new angle on woodworking

01-11-2010 05:32 PM by Andy Brownell | 12 comments »

I recently came back from a woodworking class with Dale Barnard in Paoli, IN this weekend where he taught me how to make a set of five Shaker oval nesting boxes in cherry. Dale’s workshop is set up to build just about anything, and he offers some pretty awesome classes for beginner through advanced woodworkers. Initially, I was surprised at how relatively simple the construction a set of one of these seemed to be. I guess that is pretty standard for anything from the Shakers. Howeve...

Upcoming projects and designs. #1: Inspiration, starting the design process...

01-07-2010 05:43 PM by dbhost | 8 comments »

I’ve been pretty much in awe of the talent, and creativity that flows from the shops of many of the members here. I have recently had projects that needed a LOT of hand planing, and sanding, and the size, or grain orientation of the project precluded running the piece through my 13” bench top planer… A wide drum sander would be perfect! But they are oh so expensive! What to do? Build my own! But how? So I started browsing through the project posts, looking at your s...

Repurposed desk to V-drum sander

12-29-2009 02:01 AM by Jimthecarver | 10 comments »

At a past X-Mas party I had a request for a cutting board… after I had made a simple cheese/bread board for a white elephant gift. BTW it was a big hit.So I decided to get with it and try to get the cutting board finished before x-mas, well thats a joke for sure. I cut some of the black walnut up and some hard maple got it all glued up then realized ” Hey! you dont have a way to sand and finish a board that large”....Ugh. It ended up being 14 1/2” X 22 1/2” HHH...

The Tone Project

12-28-2009 07:19 PM by JimDaddyO | 6 comments »

As a new member here, I figured that I should share the project I am working on. I am by no means a luthier, or a highly skilled woodworker (yet). This is something that I have wanted to do for a long time. It started by felling an ash tree a few years ago and getting it milled into boards. Here I am in my large workshop planing the boards to thickness. Note the fancy chip/dust collector. Did my first bookmatch ever! Made a core from maple. glueing the back to the ...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #5: Arched Candle Holder - On to New Heights

12-21-2009 10:45 PM by sras | 3 comments »

It seems like the arched form needs to be lifted off the table by some amount. I’m not sure by how much. My technique in situations like this is choose from a range. Start with too little and keep adding until it seems like too much. Somehwere in between “too little” and “too much” there should be a “just right” or at least a “close enough”!In this case I start adding spacers underneath each end. Here is the range of heights. The wi...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #3: Arched Candle Holder - It's all about adapting

12-18-2009 06:03 PM by sras | 5 comments »

Well, trimming up the sides removed the gaps I showed in the previous post. BUT the trimming exposed other gaps! Definitely needed to do a better job of clamping! Time to adapt. Time to go back to the shrinking scrap pile. As luck would have it, I had two strips of cherry from an even older project. If I remember right, these strips are from the first cherry boards I ever bought (19 years ago). Both strips are long enough and one of them has enough length to cover the ends as well. ...

Redwood Slabs

12-18-2009 02:37 AM by dougdeg | 5 comments »

We order a few redwood slabs off of ebay, We were supprised when they came they were quite large, one was 44” wide and 84” long and the other was 27” wide and 72” long. They were cut in a way that most edges were a natural live edge, Which gave them a nice free form look, Redwood was a lot softer than i had thought it wood be but nice to work with.We decide to create a redwood coffee table out of the first piece. I have a friend that has a 36” planer wit...
