You GOTTA try this tape out!

132 days ago by KnotCurser | 9 comments »

Recently, I have been doing a ton of projects that require me to stick a template to some wood so I can use a router with a flush-trim bit. I never found a double-sided tape that I liked. Either they weren’t sticky enough and were unreliable, or they where far too sticky and took a pry-bar to separate later and left nasty residues on the wood and pattern. Well, my searching is over! I routinely “shop” at the “American Science & Surplus” online store...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #864: Tale of the Tape

530 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

As I said yesterday, I was away for most of the day and didn’t return until late evening. It was however, a productive day and Keith and Bernie got a great deal of wood prepared for cutting on the scroll saw. We were running rather short of thin ornament wood and now we will have a decent supply that should last us for a while. We were also able to do some errands while in town and went to Bear River to pick up the remaining pens that Keith had for sale in the gallery. Although he ...

From Rust to Lust, can I bring it back? #6: Tedious Tape-up... and jigs? Bed/Fence protection??

721 days ago by GlennsGrandson | 4 comments »

Hello again, I’ve got quite a bit accomplished since my last post, but it took much longer than anticipated. I had to finish cleaning a few little pieces here and there and wipe off the never ending paint dust with mineral spirits. Once I’d clean a piece I’d tape it off, lots of masking tape and razor blades. The only pieces I have left are the pieces of the head. I have to clean up the head yet and probably replace the bearings, they felt good and sounded good but they prob...

Machinist Toolcart #4: Gluing up the Carcass

1030 days ago by PurpLev | 8 comments »

Had another quick chance for some shop time and used that to glue together the fitted carcass. I didn’t want to deal with the glueup the day before (after fitting the dividers) as I knew I would need a peace of mind and ample time to do the glueup properly and not rush through it. And so, I cleared the workbench from all the ‘things’ that always seem to end up on it (how is that always happening?!?) to have use of it’s full length (barely enough) and laid down the c...

Wine Cork Display Tutorials #3: Assembly

1232 days ago by FaTToaD | 1 comment »

In this tutorial, I’ll show how I glue and assembly my wine cork displays. If you’re interested in a version with larger pictures, follow the link below: Bigger Picture Version Now that I’ve got my glass, I can begin the glue-up. However, I suggest sanding the inside first, one less thing to deal with later. I begin by laying my pieces down on my table with the inside facing down and the front facing away from me. I use a piece of MDF to make sure the front edges...

"Fold up" ironing board (reverse engineering) #1: measuring the model and planning any modifications

1320 days ago by jeff_wenz | 1 comment »

So as part of a Murphy bed build, I wanted to incorporate a fold up (or hide away) ironing board. I have seen these at Lowes and Home Deport starting off about $168. They don’t look that hard to build and I sure think I could save some money AND incorporate some better materials. Step 1: Take my tape measure to Lowes and jot down some critical measurements. Ok, I forgot paper. Let’s see, what can I find in my glove box? Perfect, my State Farm insurance cards, I can use the ...

Garage Organization By a Newbie #4: Progress, or Setback?

1417 days ago by CyBorge | 8 comments »

I had one partial gallon-sized bucked of joint compound from some time last year (or was it the year before?), but it certainly wouldn’t be enough to complete the entire garage, so I went to the store to get one of those big honkin’ buckets. I prefer the pre-mixed stuff because, well, I’m an amateur, and pre-mixed means less work and less chance for screwups! I needed to get paper tape anyway, because apparently Wal-Mart only carries the fiberglass stuff. After wanderin...
