Small workbench based on shipbuilt's Short Block V8 (Workbench Challange) #1: Concept and leg assembly

02-06-2015 05:57 AM by brianb6603 | 3 comments »

ConceptI have been needing a proper workbench for a while. The top of my table saw and fold up extension have been the only spot to use. I would love to have a large proper workbench but my shop is just too small for a full size bench. I have been looking at benches in Lumberjocks and marking some for reference. shipwright had come up with some excellent ideas. His concept for the Short Block V8 is a low cost way for a beginner to get a strong, stable small workbench using tools that many b...

Winter is Bowl Roughing Season....!! (work in progress)

02-05-2015 02:21 AM by TannerTurnings | 5 comments »

Well, it’s Winter here in the UK, and a good time to source some green timber & rough turn some bowls.I’m quite lucky in that I have a few friends who work cutting trees, so getting freshly cut timber isn’t much of a problem, and getting timber that has been cut in the Winter months is probably best if you want to turn natural edge bowls, but is also quicker drying as the sap content is less. Also, the temperature is much lower so that the timber doesn’t dry out s...

Resin/Wood casting #1: Wood/Resin Casting Tutorial

01-23-2015 07:15 AM by TexasBlanks | 5 comments »

Here ya go guys and gals as requested. I am going to give my best representation of “MY” way that I do the casting process. First of all I start with a dry piece of wood (no more than 13% moisture) that I have stabilized in “Cactus Juice” www.turntex.com this hardens and stabilizes the punky or soft parts of the wood that you will mostly find in burls and spalted wood. After I stabilize it i take my ROTOZIP tool and use it to basically clean up the voids and cracks tha...

G&G Blanket Chest Build #7: Base part I

01-17-2015 04:20 PM by Ottacat | 0 comments »

A False Start When I went to the lumber store to buy the 5/4 wood for the top and base I made the mistake of not bringing the plans or dimensions. I ended up making my best guess. When I got home and laid everything out I realized that had bought only enough that I had no margin for error. The base is 3” high and I had so little wood that I needed to be able to get all four parts of the base from a single board. My widest board was only about 6 1/4” wide. I hoped that after ...

How to make a Fire Wood Holder from an old washing machine Tub.

01-12-2015 04:37 AM by cpine | 3 comments »

This old washing machine tub was what my father used in our home growing unto store firewood by the fire place. When my father passed away in November of 2012 and upon the settling of his estate I was able to get this item with all of its sentimental value to me for use in my home. To many folks including many in my family this is just an old piece of junk. It indeed could be sold for scrap metal I suppose but I like my fathers idea and I suspect he got this from his parents home in Iowa. I...

Work Shop Organization #2: Power Tool Storage Update

01-02-2015 11:14 AM by Nate66 | 3 comments »

After drawing the plans, I went to the store to purchase the lumber to build the storage box. Had to make a few substitutions due to the price of lumber here in England. Instead of using ply, I settled for MDF. Still quite expensive but nothing near the price of ply or pine. Anyway, I will post pictures of the work in progress.
