Extremely Average #40: To Build or Not To Build

02-11-2010 05:10 AM by Ecocandle | 21 comments »

A while back I talked about my desire to buy or build a router table. Today I have decided. I will build. It will be glorious. The factors that influenced my decision were many; quality, precision, flatness of the table, and to some extent cost. When I weighed all the factors the scales were greatly tilted in favor of buying either the Incra super system or the Veritas system. I choose to build, because I wanted to. In a day or two, the router plate I ordered will arrive. This w...

Solid Wood Door glue-ups / Tips and Techniques

02-11-2010 03:15 AM by KnotWright | 6 comments »

One of the best things about Lumberjocks is that an individual can be exposed to so many different ways to do the same task. While you are working in your shop, you aren’t really exposed to too many different ways, normally the way you were taught, or how you figured it out, tends to be the way we always end up doing things. This way might not be the most efficient or productive, but it does get the job done. My question for everyone is how do you do the following task: I”...

techniques #3: PVC tube with hinged doors as lathe dust collector

02-08-2010 04:21 AM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

I was watching a YouTube video of a guy in Downtown Disney turning a baseball bat, and noticed he had a pretty simple and cool dust collection setup that’s easy to make, simple to use, and low-profile. Check it out. I’d embed the video, but I’m not sure how to cue it up to exactly the right location as I can with a link.

Great Tool Buys #2: Belt Sander Bargain

02-04-2010 04:08 AM by BRAY | 2 comments »

I found another Pawn Shop bargain. I came across a DeWalt belt sander tagged for $39. I took y’alls advice and asked for a better price. She sold it to me for $32. And once again, the tool appears to have very minimal use—almost new condition. I have read the reviews on the DeWalt DW431, they aren’t glowing reviews. But for $32 and how much I will use it, its a good buy.

I was asked to take these shutters and make some bookshelves. I will be utilizing wood that is approx. 60 yrs old and these shutters, which, we don’t know how old, but could be much more. I am inserting the pictures of the shutters, as this project may take a little while

The making of a Telescope Eyepiece box #2: More pictures

01-30-2010 05:22 PM by Dennis Fletcher | 2 comments »

I have been busy, as of late, with actual work, going out of the shop to build, so I have been slow at getting pictures of this box uploaded. For any who are interested, here are current pictures. I need to put a finish on it, molding on it and complete the interior. (A small box that will be able to be lifted out for filters.) Last, but not least, I need to add some sort of handle on each side.

Extremely Average #27: The Twins

01-29-2010 05:11 AM by Ecocandle | 17 comments »

I stand by my bench with my sander in hand. As I move it slowly over the piece of saw horse I see the marks of my progress. I gently pass over the little imperfections that taught me how not to us a chisel. I think about the progress. I think about the grain and how it measures time. The building of the Krenov saw horses is supposed to take an afternoon, but if you are really skilled you can make it take a month. I am a person with this level of skill. Time is a funny thing and a...

WWI Whirligigs

01-20-2010 01:41 AM by RicksWhirligigs | 3 comments »

Hey everyone!I have recently opened up a shop on Etsy.com to sell my wooden airplane whirligigs. I have so much fun making them, and love learning the history behind each model I build. I have recently moved into the business of selling them, as i cannot possibly fit anymore in my yard!!! You’ll find that the prices I have chosen are very low, just enough to keep the cost of supplies from getting my wifes attention! so check them out here:http://www.rickswhirligigs.etsy.comthanks!!!
