Saw till

622 days ago by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

I decided to burn through some more of my scrap wood, this time stuff left over from when I built the miter saw/router table station. There was some pretty good sized 1/2” plywood left over cut at odd angles (which was itself scrap from our shelving project). I have been mulling over what to do with this odd sized (about 2’ x 4’) wood and finally hit on an idea: a saw till. For a while now, my master plan has been to get the tools that I use regularly (that is, the h...

Cleaning Out Scrap

864 days ago by DogwoodTales | 8 comments »

Recently I took some time to clean out old scrap wood and other misc items that I have had sitting around in the workshop for ages. So I decided to make a fun video of it. I hope you enjoy it. Sometimes it’s difficult to make the decision to keep something or to get rid of it. Scrap is great to have around for various reasons, however too much scrap becomes a nuisance and even a safety hazard especially in a small workshop like mine. It’s important to limit the scrap wood and v...

Spalters Inc. #6: determining the temperature of destruction of xylindein

1037 days ago by Sodabowski | 19 comments »

Hey guyzz, So little time these days with all the work at the university. But I finally settled for a while to build a wooden clamp for test tubes to make a first measurement of the temperature at which xylindein, the pigment produced by Chlorociboriae, permanently loses its color. As you all know, sanding wood leads to quite high temperatures at the surface, and I had previously noticed that xylindein was destroyed when bandsawing stained wood with a freakin’ dull blade from hell...

Poorboy Parallel Clamps…questions from a Woodworker

1283 days ago by Bob Simmons | 9 comments »

Perhaps you watched the recent woodworking video How to make poorboy Parallel Clamps. Here are a few questions from one viewer that got me thinking.A quick question …The poorboy parallel clamps obviously works well for panel glue ups, but what are limitations you could see. For instance:........................... Could you use this with deeper pads for a benchtop glue up? or would the clamping force not be up to that task? Would longer pads apply more pressure across wh...

organization #2: a simple, rolling, scrap wood, scrap wood holder

1569 days ago by Gary Fixler | 6 comments »

Just before starting the new job, I decided to clean up one little area in front of my garage and log racks. I used some 2×4s from that Mexican restaurant that closed down, and pine slats from crates from a restaurant next door to that which was receiving kitchen appliance deliveries at the time (both scores – junky as they may be – here). The wheels were rescued from the simple 2×4 hand truck I made awhile ago, which broke (last 2 pics) from dragging too many huge logs ...

005: scrap cutoff shelves #2: and now there are two

1646 days ago by Gary Fixler | 14 comments »

All the pieces for both units were cut out at the same time, so there was another waiting to be assembled. I spent some time today on that. Here it is next to the first one, waiting to be filled up: I’ll have to find a new place to hang my roller stand, but that’s okay, as I’ve only been able to hang one of the two here on its over-the-rafters hooks. Right now it’s immediately in front of the new shelving: I learned something interesting about French clea...
