Shop stuff #94: Preparing bone for guitar nut and saddle blanks

05-22-2017 08:15 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

I checked a whole bunch of how to’s online and the process is not difficult. Just time consuming. Mostly waiting. Now I have a bunch of stock to make saddles and nuts from for guitars. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVSNnA9rY1o

The Beginner's Hand Tool Kit (Some thoughts)

05-20-2017 10:02 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 2 comments »

View on YouTube The video covers mostly the tool side of things but I’d like to talk a bit about the concepts behind some of the first tools you buy. This is mostly just my opinion and my experience speaking (which isn’t much compared to some!). My main reason for the list in the video is as follows. You want to buy tools that help you develop confidence as well as skills. Buying an axe as your first woodworking tool is something that I recommend each budding woodworker do. ...

Shop Chips #1: Advice on Vises! (For beginners)

05-18-2017 05:46 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 0 comments »

View on YouTube so this’ll kind of be my “vlog within a blog” sort of thing. For this week I wanted to talk about something that the internet seems to complicate for alot of people and that’s vises. I cover it in the video but suffice to say that the best vise that you can possibly get is the one that has all the parts, the jaws move smoothly and freely, isn’t missing any parts, and most importantly fits in the space that you have alloted for work. In ...

ATTN OKLAHOMA WOODWORKERS!!

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...

Shopmade Luthier Tools #21: Copper Pencil extender

05-10-2017 01:13 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

I know this is reaching a little bit. I made this pencil extender to use in the music shop because I keep a pencil in a pocket of my apron and as it gets shorter and shorter, There comes a point where I can’t easily reach it. this way it is kept at pretty much the length of a pencil. I made it from a piece of copper pipe just over the inner diameter of a random pencil I grabbed. The end is capped and the open end has half of an extension sleeve on it. I drilled and tapped a 6-32 ...

Shop stuff #92: Record vice/vise refurb.

05-10-2017 03:15 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I got a great deal on a vise. Lots of grime and dirt on it, but in good shape. All it needed was a tear down, clean and lube and it should be ready for a life time of service. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hM4GyO1eBhg I didn’t embed the video this time. It’s kind of a hassle.

Dust Collection #1: Remote Controller for my DC system

05-08-2017 04:33 PM by Tim | 0 comments »

This is a remote I built for my dust collection system. I only wired in one 240v circuit to my garage a few years ago, never expecting to need another. Vice installing a second circuit, I decided to maximize the existing circuit while designing my remote controller for my dust collection system. This site is where my inspiration came from. I already had the 120v remote, which was being used for my original HF 1hp blower. Now, my DC remote controller is using a DPDT 240v relay that requi...

Go home shelf you're drunk (twisted corner shelf)

05-02-2017 02:58 PM by Blake Haskins | 0 comments »

A couple years ago I saw a corner shelf that was a conceptual computer design on Pinterest. I thought it was really cool so I searched the internet for a real-life version, couldn’t find it. so I made one, and it was awesome, not even that difficult. And recently, ive been thinking of how I could make it more practical (A.K.A. bigger shelves) so here is my 2.0 model. Id say it looks just as good if not better than the original. If you would like to see the shelf, and its predecess...

Modern Computer Desk #6: Filling the gaps in the mitered case corners

04-28-2017 07:16 PM by Ron Stewart | 2 comments »

The gaps in the case corners was a source of wounded pride, but they were really easy to address using sawdust and glue. (I also considered burnishing, but reserved that for a backup plan. Fortunately, I didn’t need it.) I started by taping both sides of the gap to keep glue off the surfaces. Then I filled the gap with white glue. Next, I dusted the glue with wood dust and pressed it into the gap with my fingers. Finally, I rubbed across the gap with my finger to remove ...
