Wooden clad cups #1: Wooden Coffee Cups, the complete tutorial.

08-29-2011 01:55 AM by Ghrrum | 5 comments »

I’m reposting this for all your benifit, if there are any problems with seeing the pictures please let me know so I can fix it. This should pretty well explain and show you how to make one of the cups below, with the exception of doing the hand carving or any lathe work. All that is necessary to make these is a table saw, sandpaper, chisel, and a hammer. Oh, and wood, you always need wood. I offered a couple weeks ago to try to do a tutorial on how to make a coffee cup like this. ...

Ugly blade mark

08-28-2011 08:05 PM by poospleasures | 4 comments »

If you do not want this !Do this ContactTo protect your table saw fence from that ulgy blade mark, set the fence about .125” from the blade, Drill a hole, thread it and install a machine screw finger tight. This will effectively stop you from sliding the fence by accident into a spinning saw blade. Should you want the fence on the other side of the blade just unscrew the stop. The reason for offering this tip is I did it when I was young and more careless. I did not like the terri...

A new workbench #2: Cutting all that wood

08-23-2011 08:33 PM by Murdock | 2 comments »

I finally got around to finalizing a design so I could begin cutting the wood. I started by purchasing 2 sheets of 3/4 sanded ply and 7 2×8 fir boards, I will also be using some MDF I had on hand. “Bench in Potentia” After a new TS blade and a whole lot of ripping I went from a stack of a few boards to a stack of more smaller boards. I then put together the 2 end assemblies, this is where I made my first mistake. I have 3 different widths of boards I cut out ...

Making a wooden cup, part 1

08-23-2011 04:38 PM by Ghrrum | 11 comments »

I offered a couple weeks ago to try to do a tutorial on how to make a coffee cup like this. The above is teak, it’s composed of 15 separate pieces. You build it like you would a barrel, just smaller. So, to start you need to find something that will work well as an interior sleeve, I’m partial to stainless so I keep my eyes peeled for any candidates when I’m out and about. I’ve found these work wonderfully and are cheap. Here is one out of the box. The real...

Shop in the Sky #4: FINALLY got the walls up!

08-22-2011 02:44 AM by EROCK | 5 comments »

I Spent the day building the walls for the shop. Each 4 foot panel is built separately so if I ever have to take it down, the panels can go with me. The lower panel beneath the open window can come out with a few screws if I need to forklift anything in or out of the shop. I need to get all the rest of my tools to the shop and get everything set up and finalized, but I’m happy with the progress made!

Setting Up Shop #1: How to get a 500 lb table saw out of your truck - alone

08-19-2011 02:53 AM by MoshupTrail | 13 comments »

My shop is about 40 minutes from town. So when I got a great deal on a saw and I wanted to get it set up right away, I didn’t want to wait a week or two to get a couple buddies to help me. I wanted to do it right then! Home Depot used a fork lift to place it in the back of my truck. It would be up to me to get it out. So the first step would be to disassemble the packing as much as I could to lighten it.Starting with the metal frame… There were actually several ...
