Yet Another Craftsman 113 Saw Blog #12: Can I have that time back?

11-28-2016 09:04 PM by jonlruss | 2 comments »

Well I didn’t get to really put in anymore time over the long weekend than I would have over a regular weekend. Actually even less, so not a lot of progress. Did add a line to draw dust out of the router enclosure to where I’ll connect to it in the back of the workstation. I know I really shouldn’t have a 90 degree turn in the line but it’s a fairly small enclosure and I never really expected to be able to draw all of the dust anyway. Apart from that, all I got don...

Shop stuff #65: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 5

11-28-2016 01:19 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Yes, it is a long series, and going to get longer…..lol. In this one we get the feet roughed out and some actual joinery done, mortising the feet and legs together. I get some new saws too. After I see myself working with them I realise I have to improve my body mechanics and form. But I am having fun, and to me, that is the whole point. View on YouTube

Musical Instruments #3: Marimba Frame Time

11-22-2016 04:01 PM by johnstoneb | 2 comments »

Building the frame was just straight forward woodworking, accurate measurement and square cuts. I built the frame out of cherry 1. I like cherry and how it darkens over time and 2. it was a $400 upgrade for frame on one of the commercial marimba websites. I can get cherry at a reasonable price here.The first thing is to make the two ends. Time to make the keyboard frames. This is one place where building the glockenspiel first really helped in understanding why and how important...

Yet Another Craftsman 113 Saw Blog #11: Almost done with one end

11-21-2016 10:54 PM by jonlruss | 4 comments »

Was able to finish the bottom drawer on the router table end of the workstation. I also decided to splurge (yeah, right) and bought some wood knobs for the drawers. The metal pull on the big drawer is clearance from Lowe’s. I found about a dozen like this for 82 cents each. Couldn’t pass that up. They were cheaper than the wood knobs at 87 cents lol. Also I think they’ll be better for the larger drawers that’ll have more weight in them. Once I had all of thi...

Musical Instruments #2: Starting the Marimba

11-20-2016 03:36 PM by johnstoneb | 6 comments »

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...

Table Saw Restoration #1: Intro and Cleaning Up the Top

11-15-2016 01:44 PM by Jared Tohlen | 4 comments »

This is my first post or utterance on this site, so bear with me while I get in the swing of things… I’ve always wanted to get into woodworking so I can build useful and practical things with my own hands. Within the last few months I’ve come into a host of woodworking tools and machinery, most of which were simply given to me once I expressed interest. These items include: a Delta spindle sander, old craftsman dual disc/belt sander, a vintage Buffalo Tool drill press, a ...

Yet Another Craftsman 113 Saw Blog #10: And on we go

11-14-2016 08:51 PM by jonlruss | 2 comments »

When I started this project one thing I thought as I went through the blogs of others was, how can it take so long? Here I am months after starting and boy do I get it now. Between family obligations, vacation, getting sick, weather, and only getting so many hours over a weekend that can be devoted to it I really understand now. At any rate, the last two weekends I’ve managed to get in a little more time working on this. Unfortunately I got a late start on Saturday, if I’d had ...

Shop stuff #63: Coffee table Pt 4

11-14-2016 07:45 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, a coffee table needs legs right? In this one I make up the slabs for the legs of the coffee table. Lots of cutting and milling and work with the hand plane. In the end I have 2 nice blanks to be used for the legs of the table. I experimented with a new intro and outro and getting some different angles on some shots. I also kept it under 20 minutes. Makes more episodes I suppose. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #61: Coffee table pt. 2

11-02-2016 03:23 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

After lots of editing and cutting and experimenting with my editing software, I finally got part 2 done. Here I am getting the top roughed out some more and slowly bringing it into what I want. Hours and hours of work over several days. It does not seem like it when you watch a video. I have to point out that my power tools are not particularly quiet, I pull the volume back on those sections. I watch a lot of You Tube videos, and edit mine, using headphones, and getting your ears blasted...

Quoridor board: How to (quick & dirty)

10-26-2016 01:11 PM by Picklehead | 0 comments »

A fellow Lumberjock requested more info on how I made my quick & dirty Quoridor board. After sending him the info, I figured I might as well post it here. It’s been almost a year since I made the board so I hope my memory is correct. Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll do my best to answer them. MAKING A QUORIDOR BOARD The overall width is determined by the size of the squares that make up the board plus the width of your blade. I made mine by allowing for extr...
