Adventures in Spraying #2: First Spray Job Done (sort of)

1386 days ago by PurpLev | 13 comments »

We had the day off today at the office, so I figured this is as good a time to spray some finish. Fist thing first. I had to setup a way to spray while keeping the area somewhat separated from the rest of the basement in fear of contamination of the rest of the things. I also wanted to have a way to rotate the work so that I can spray all sides without having to walk around and being in the direction of the air flow (I have a box fan in the window to pull out the overspray etc. I initia...

Tools #4: Nova DVR-XP Standing Coin Test - VIDEO

2494 days ago by mot | 9 comments »

Just for giggles, I did a standing coin test with the Nova DVR-XP. Many of you know, this is a new toy…er tool to my shop. I haven’t gotten a lot of time to enjoy it, but I have done a few things. The lathe is fantastic, smooth, lots of power and is a significant upgrade to the lathe I had before. In this series, I’m going to demonstrate some hollowing tools including the famous Termite and the Proforme Hollowers. In this little video, I just do the coin test. The LCD ...

tests #1: a thin, fig dish test

1736 days ago by Gary Fixler | 8 comments »

This is from nearly a month ago. I’m behind on my adventures. Chucking something properly in a lathe takes a little bit of thought and prep work. I only had about an hour after work, but was in the mood to learn a bit more. In this test, I simply wanted to see if I could make a thin, dish-like object in a small chunk of Indian Laurel (Ficus microcarpa). I had recently acquired a ton of it, so I just pinched it between centers and had at it. The test dish I would turn was from a pi...

Shaving Giraffe #1: Firstborn

434 days ago by RobynHoodridge | 7 comments »

I’ve been wanting a shaving bench. And since i can’t help but contemplate the design concepts behind what i’m about to build, i contemplated the fundamentals of how a shaving horse works. I thought “Great. But why not like this?” .. as an alternate mechanism for clamping a work piece in position sprang to mind. The contraption looks to me like a giraffe stretched out to drink, or the head of a giraffe, so I call it the shaving Giraffe rather than shaving Horse. W...

Board Game Travel Case #6: A trial run

957 days ago by ChadR | 4 comments »

Today I took my board game case out on a trial run. I learned a few things. People things it’s funny when you carry a large box around your neck and I need some handles. I also applied some magnetic paint and then a layer of chalk paint on the inside of the front board. I decided it being magnetic I can keep score sheets posted as well as write in chalk the score of the game. After the drying we put it through a test run and it works out great. I am excited for this project to be comple...

Ultimate Mobile Woodworking Bench (UMWB) #7: Testing the dust separator

109 days ago by Garry | 1 comment »

I posted two projects related to the dust collection system designed into this mobile workbench. Click the links for the compact Thien dust separator and the rotary blast gates. The dust separator seemed extremely effective with almost no carryover to the vacuum. I was anxious test and document how effective, so I followed the example of some LJers and set up a test. I measured the contents of the dust separator bin and dumped it on the floor. I also swept up the shop floor which included ...
