The Flip Side of Woodworking...

2307 days ago by jcees | 14 comments »

Okay, here’s one of the most useful jigs that I’ve ever made. And if I lost i tomorrow, I could build another in about fifteen minutes. I’m not going to include any dimensions as you should make one to fit your own situation. I made this up obviously with scraps. If I made it out of anything else, it wouldn’t work any better. When I build things there’s always some small parts in need of a little fitting. Viola! I frequently use this #7 r...

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

1009 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...

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

1541 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 ...

Cleaning Out Scrap

837 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...

Making a Game for $5.00 #1: Starting Out

1688 days ago by Deela40 | 4 comments »

The Bible study I am a part of is having a party for Christmas. Each person is supposed to bring one gift, spending no more than $5.00. I saw this as a challenge. $5.00 isn’t much and I wanted to offer something of higher value. Lucky for me, my wife recently brought home some free pieces of wood. She works at an art gallery and they were getting rid of some random things. She saw some wood they had used as plaques that were going to be tossed. As she is industrious and thoughtful,...

Poorboy Parallel Clamps…questions from a Woodworker

1255 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...
