Shop storage projects #22: Frame works, false fronts, and other mishaps.....

02-17-2017 02:11 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, trying to get caught up here. Had the sides done, and the drawer ready to be glued up. Needed to build some webframes to make this into a case to hold two drawers… First I set aside a blank to make a false front for the bottom drawer, to ensure it didn’t get resawn down to make a the frames… Caption says this is a tenon cutter. That is only half right, as I have to move the jig one more time.. To make these “dominoes”. When all were cut, I wou...

02-02-2017 04:32 AM by Lemongrasspicker | 7 comments »

If you prefer not to read, the youtube video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fT5ArQLTQS8 I came into possession of this chisel via the wonder that is Ebay, you just never know what cool thing you might find. I had wanted something that would let me add some texture to large pieces like coffee table tops and/or wood carvings and such. I came across this one and immediately thought it was very interesting. And indeed it was, Underhill the maker of it seemed to go out of bus...

Hello again folks! This weekend’s project was a toy gun, but I wanted to make the trigger click back after being fired. To accomplish this, I used a simple rubber band! The main shape was cut out using a Shapeoko 3 CNC machine. Enjoy! View on YouTubeuTube

Shop storage projects #1: Overview

01-01-2017 09:30 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, not much for a picture today,maybe later on. Need to move and remove a few things in the shop. Can’t do a whole lot over by the Lathe bench. Too much other junk in place. However.. I can empty out, and clean up Tool Chest #1, and have it taken upstairs as a Hope Chest. I can remove a couple power tools from one spot, place them where the plane til is. Then place the power tools where the til used to be. I may have enough room to move the brace til over beside the pla...

DIY Tools | Woodworking #4: How to Set Up a Hand Plane before Shaving

12-10-2016 08:12 PM by Humus Workshop | 4 comments »

This is the story: after tinkering the plane I got so tired that at night I dreamed that I was at the beach using the plane like a mirror. So check out my dream come true here: https://youtu.be/eIzW6Nsi0aE The plane is a Stanley n5 with the sole and edges in a very poor condition. In addition, the blade holder (frog) was not flat so the blade did not work well. Although it’s a work that needs patience, believe me that you will have a happy ending and the difference is well worth ...

Cherry Projects #1: Box - Planning the Project

11-22-2016 06:16 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 2 comments »

Hi! It’s been a little but since I’ve posted. Now that Phoenix, AZ isn’t so hot I can get back out in the shop comfortably more often. More time equals more projects. More projects means more experience. More experience (to me) means more creativity and more exploration. So, cherry is on sale down at Woodworkers Source on the I17 frontage road between bell road and union hills. It’s about $5/bft so I bought about $50 worth; I’m tempted to go and buy more nex...

I have finally started on the marimba. I am following the plans I got from makeamarimba.com. They are a good plans although some times you have to translate from oz to usa english. I did a lot of searching on line on commercial marimbas and settled on padauk for the keyboard and cherry for the frame. The preferred wood for concert keyboards is rosewood. I called my hardwood supplier to get a price on rosewood when I was able to breath again I decided padauk was a good keyboard wood (most...
