The amazing woodworking collection of Zhuhai, China

10-15-2018 09:46 PM by Elyasaf Shweka | 2 comments »

Try to imagine yourself, as a hobbyist woodworker, being invited to a private tour accompanied by an Chinese government representative, in what appears to be the biggest, most expensive and most amazing woodworking collection. how big? 20 thousand square meters, which is about 200,000 square feet, equivalent to the size of an Walmart superstore. also, this collection is private, and therefor closed to the public. we were the only visitors at this giant warehouse.I have so much to say about t...

Shop stuff #137: Bathroom reno Part 7...Tubby Time!

10-12-2018 12:33 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I got the shower all trimmed out and the plumbing completed! Yet another step done in getting the bathroom done. A bit of fiddling about getting everything cut to size, but in the end it all comes together. I am loving the cedar, and I pass on a couple of tips in the process. View on YouTube

Wooden Shackles #4: Accents Not Going as Planned

10-03-2018 12:55 AM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

So I had a thought (this is normally where my projects go wrong) and wondered if I could put some nice accents on my shackles like the real woodworkers do. Maybe some peg caps, or at least fake ones that make it look like less bland. I bought a selection of plug cutting bits and tried the 3/8” one to make small circles. I used a 3/8” inch forsner bit to make the holes … The problem came when I discovered the 3/8” plug cutter doesn’t in fact cut 3/8” ...

No more brushing Lacquer

09-20-2018 08:42 PM by Woodwrecker | 11 comments »

My good friend Barry Reiter, who is an “elder” in our woodworkers guild (CFWG.ORG), and a retired chemical engineer put on a presentation last week on spraying lacquer.His depth of knowledge and experience made the presentation very enjoyable and I learned a lot.I hope there is a part 2 and maybe 3, because the hour allotted just wasn’t long enough. Anyway, I got the bug for trying out what I learned, and the next day in the shop I took out my little detail HVLP 4oz spray...

Shop stuff #135: Roubo build Pt 6

09-02-2018 03:23 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

There really is a lot of work gets done in the 12 minutes this video runs. Not a lot to show for it but a nice, fairly square slab top for the Roubo bench. A bit of a treat at the end to show what is in the future of this build. Naturally while this work goes on there is also a heat wave with high humidity going on. That makes it short days in the shop, as soon as the sweat starts pooling in my glasses I can’t see and I call it a day….lol. View on YouTube
