Steam Bending #4: My First Bending Project is Completed!

10-19-2012 10:57 PM by Retsof | 3 comments »

The Nets are done and I’m really pleased with how they came out, this being my first attempt at steam bending or building my own net frames. Two of them will make nice gifts for my Dad and my Brother. Net#1: Walnut and Alder Hoop with a Walnut Handle. The inside diameter of the hoop is 9”x14” with an overall length of 21.5”. One of my hand made fly fishing lanyards is on the table behind the net. I fish with a lanyard to hold my fly fishing tools rather tha...

Circle cutting #1: Lazy Susan..the making of?

03-22-2009 12:51 PM by degoose | 3 comments »

This will definitely be a work in progress and will take a while so bear with me. This is all very alien to me. In this blog? I will endeavour to show some jigs I have built to cut and sand perfect circles. Tool of Choice Is the Bandsaw. While circles can be cut with a router and trammel I find the bandsaw is far quicker. the Jig Is basically an extention table with a sliding dovetail dohicky for adjusting the different radii for larger or smaller circles. I will be making some La...

Hoosier Cabinet Refurbish #2: Quick update

03-19-2013 09:56 PM by Philip "Pip" Storm | 3 comments »

Just a quick update to let you know where I’m at. Rough sanding is done and so are most repairs and modifications. Some finer sanding and a back for the top then it’s painting time. I also wanted to share the modification I did to the “roll up door”. Here is a pic of the original track. This setup seemed kind of chincy. The door rolled up upon itself which, to me, seemed like it could lead to binding. Not only that, I was afraid the slats would rub t...

Adjustable Height Rolling Outfeed Cabinet #1: Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

06-02-2011 08:53 AM by newTim | 3 comments »

But the past I am condemned to repeat is the creation of a new design that I have never done before, am not certain of the existence or availability of key materials and hardware, and possess the barest notion of what it is I want the thing to do. Welcome to my world. I knew I wanted a sturdy outfeed table atop a cabinet that would provide much needed storage in my small shop and would provide another work surface. If that were the extent of my desires I’d have whipped it out in n...

CYLINDER MAKING #4: Wooden Hinge for Cylinder... Is it possible?

07-30-2012 12:37 PM by BertFlores58 | 3 comments »

The hardest challenge in this series is to make the WOODEN HINGE for a cylinder side. The difficulty of the curve fitting and the alignment of the pin to cater the correct pivot. LID PART . The lid being the one that is on top will take the whole arc that will be close to the outermost part and length will just be enough to hold the post on each end. This must be tangent to the circumference and must be at right angle (at first only so as to route the slot that will hold the pin). You ...

TV Time

06-16-2011 03:28 AM by Transition | 3 comments »

I don’t watch much TV. It takes away from shop time. And most of it is garbage anyway. But I do catch a show or two, or watch a movie from time to time, on my computer. And I hate to admit it, I enjoy reruns as much as the next guy. I’ve spent countless hours and wasted precious life re-watching Star Wars, James Bond, Indiana Jones, Bad Boys, Kelly’s Heros, Sweet Home Alabama, etc… Why would anyone watch a show more than two or three times? It’s not like c...

Workshop #28: Finishing Rack

03-29-2014 12:12 PM by clieb91 | 3 comments »

Been working on a number of bottle openers and decided to try a lacquer finish on them as it should hold up a bit better. Problem was how to apply the finish on a round thing. Here is the simple solution I came up with. Basic piece of scrap wood (actually game that did not work out) 3/8” bolts and nuts. It worked worked well. I have 5 new bottle openers already dried with lacquer and the epoxy is now curing on them. Looking forward to delivering these to the gift shop ...
