I’ve been wanting to build a bench for a long time now. My brother bought me a LV large vise quite awhile ago which had been the major money stumbling block at the time. Well life happens and I never built the bench. I have been using an old oak table that I had scrounged from somewhere, here it is: So today being “Louis Reil Day”...an excuse for the government to give us a day off in February… I figured I’d catch up on some projects that have been sittin...
Somehow things in our modern world have moved so fast that I think the craft, care and pride has become second to strictly making money off of dumbed down consumers. Tools, automobiles, furniture, so many things seem spit out of a robotic assembly line and tossed in our faces through constant visual media. The machine of the marketing world I think at most depends on our stressed out, overworked lifestyles to cave in and just except modern junk. It attempts to pacify our weary minds with f...
A couple of LJs have done this already, but they all used a lathe. The only part of a shop made screwdriver handle that needs to be round is the “tenon” in order to fit a proper ferrule. I had the notion that a tapered plug cutter could be used, and I was right. With that obstacle conquered, and a batch of screwdriver shanks from Lee Valley Tools, I went about making my custom screwdrivers. There are pictures of each step, so that should help. I made several extra handles and t...
Well, I decided that even though it was too expensive to use real Spanish cedar for a test project, that I should go ahead and make a liner anyway like I would do if this was going to be a real humidor. I found a really cool solution for parting the lid from the box. I was not to happy with all the techniques I’d seen using a table saw, because I knew I would lose 1/8” to the saw kerf. Instead, I bought this nifty little 6 Piece Rotary Saw Blade Kit at Harbor Freight: http:/...
Watch a cheap woodworker repair his grain shovel’s handle rather than buy a new one!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUdZCRm3aXA&list=UUd5zJvEvBsWALUYaChpNX8Q&feature=share
The hard maple table displayed in my projects needs chairs. We have a small house and a small dining room. The chairs must slide mostly under the table out of the way. Another LJ displayed his low back chair and the idea was born! I bought Charles Brocks plans and video. I chose hard maple to match the table. Sure it’s hard. But once you’re grinding with carbide tools and sanding to sculpt it doesn’t matter much. I’m keeping track of my hours because I...
Well it’s kinda clunky and made outa junk ductwork, but the price was right, and it works! I started with some old pipe from a friends vent hood off their old stove. It had an accumulation of gunk from years of cooking. It was serviceable after scraping and bending flat though. Then I drew up the 4” high transition from a 13.5” x 2.75” rectangle to a 4” circle. I cut that half pattern out and transferred it to the sheet metal with a center p...
This cabinet is made from leftover red oak, Luan, birch plywood and plexiglass that I had in my shop. It is approximately 17”T x 7 1/2”W x 6” deep. I would have liked to make it a little taller to handle a couple more shelves and slightly deeper to have been able to recess the back panel. The Box I first sent the oak through the joiner to ensure I had 1 flat square edge. I then cut the board to the proper widths on my table saw then to final lengths on the Miter...
