Hello fellow sawdust-heads. Three lovely ladies ready to ship out in a few days. Thought you might like to see them. There are more pictures on my Facebook page. The two outer rockers are walnut, and the middle one is Tiger Maple (the quilting is awesome, even though the picture doesn’t show it). Cheers!
The final installment of the Hutch with buffet build Thank you all for following along.
I just wanted to update on the status of the class and inform every one of the delay. For those of you that do not know, I had a misfortunate (stupid?) accident and broke a bone in my right hand a couple of weeks ago. I was hoping that I had progressed far enough beforehand that it would not affect the class. Unfortunately the bones are not healing correctly and it is taking longer for ir it to heal. I tried again tonight, but do not have enough dexterity or hand strength to sand while I...
I thought it would be cool to follow up and post the finished product of my Virtual Pinball Experience. It actually turned out so good that I got asked multiple times whether we gutted an actual pinball machine to build this. There’s also a short video so you can see it in action. Thanks for looking!
Im working on some cabients for my mom and I need a drum sander badly. If you have a drum sander send me a comment so I can hear what you think of it. AJ
Well yesterday it was raining alot here, so i spent some free time on my work station, just need some odds and ends to finish it, still trying to locate some 7/1 6 round stock and after I attach the rod holder and try it out, I’m going to paint this puppy.
Thanks for joining us for the third installment of “Intarsia Basics” and this is where it starts to get really fun. Cutting out the pattern is one of the best parts of doing this kind of art. It takes a little practice to get used to using your saw. You can look up some practice patterns or just make some zig zags, loop the loops, straight lines, gentle curves, and circles on a piece of paper and glue to a practice board. Cut out some of these and you will start getting used to the “feel ...
Jocks, I need your help with determining the Drum diameter for a sander I plan to build. (see earlier post for image). The issue is that I have two options (sizes of steel tubing I have) for the diameter of the drum, either 4-1/2” or 6-5/8”. The design of my Drum/Disc sander has both the drum and the disc mounted on the same shaft. This allows me to drive both with a single 2HP, 1725rpm motor I have. The primary decision I am faced with is which size drum to build. The...
I’m back! I got another days worth of work done on Saturday, while the weather was nice I cut the legs from oak 4×4’s using a handsaw: I cut all 4 legs, then I used my router to make part of the tenons on the Apron boards: This was messy… And it looked like I was eating Cheetos all day and wiping my hands on my shorts: My first Mortice and Tenon! Not the best, but it’s at least a decent flat fit All the tenons are done, and 2 legs have the Mor...
I have decided to build a combination Drum/Disc Sander. This project is driven by my recently acquired interest in building end-grain cutting boards, and my dislike of hours of sanding those boards. As my day job is related to machine design, this shouldn’t be too much of a stretch for me, beyond the fact that I will get to personally get to do most of the ‘building’ myself. This unit will be built from metal, not wood. What I believe that is unique (as far as I know) ...
