Life happenings #5: Off topic, but things that need doing

11-20-2016 06:25 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

It’s a work shop, not just a wood shop. There are things that need doing on a seasonal basis around the home. Getting the winter tires on the car is one of them. Now that the summer tires are off, I can give them a good cleaning and inspection. I am trying to make the chrome look as good as it can using a method I saw a few guys doing on You Tube. Not 100% successful, but the rims look much better. View on YouTube

Shop Tips & Tricks #19: The Art of Middles of Symmetries

11-20-2016 03:12 PM by GnarlyErik | 3 comments »

I don’t know why I did not think to include this as a part of my blog about centerlines since it is very closely related. I will call this notion ‘The Art of Middles of Symmetries’. ┬áSimply put, all symmetrical shapes by definition have a ‘middle’, or centerline. Stating that notion as a corollary to centerlines, you might say: “All symmetrical shapes have an EXACT middle centerline.” Take advantage of this simple fact by using it when laying out ...

Simple Machine Shop Upgrade - Self-storing Power and Dust Collection

11-08-2016 01:02 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 3 comments »

I love my shop. The power tools, the hand tools, the padded luthier workbench, and the integrated dust collection. Especially the dust collection. One point of frustration however, is the relatively limited storage space. And so I’ve had to find spaces in every crevice and corner, and install shelving and hooks around the wood-paneled walls. A particularly frustrating problem was the lack of convenient power and dust collection on my main workbench/tablesaw outfeed table. The rout...

DIY Tools | Woodworking #3: Bandsaw Jig to Cut Log Slices / Christmas Ornaments

11-08-2016 10:44 AM by Humus Workshop | 2 comments »

Hi everyone, a few weeks ago a friend asked me these slices to use as Christmas ornaments and I took the opportunity to release the laser machine. So far I had cut the logs by freehand but this jig is very handy and works very well. Hope make more jigs for the bandsaw in the future because is very handy to save money in blades. Check out the video here: https://youtu.be/dKV1M2XVJ2s Thanks for watching and be loving!

Gaming Table Marquetry #2: Addendum to series #1

11-03-2016 07:44 PM by smokey56 | 4 comments »

Apparently some of the initial photos of the gaming table did not get published. I have made some adjustments and now, hopefully, these will work. I’ll explain each with less detail. The first photo below is of the table opened and the second photo is of the top closed. Again, this gaming table is exhibited in a German museum Schloss Anholt. I wanted to re-create it; so I am using the same materials, pewter, brass and faux tortoiseshell. Of course the original is not faux tortoi...
