Torque WorkCentre #5: Birds Beak Shelving

1358 days ago by dustbunny | 16 comments »

About two weeks ago Hopdevil posted a question to the forum about shelving he had seen in the Martha Stewart Magazine. It is called birds beak shelving.Well thank you Hopdevil, a gun went off in my head. This would be the perfect project for the Torque WorkCentre.So off I went to my shop with video camera in hand and shot this remedial video showing how easy this project was to make. It was more difficult to get the camera and my mouth working at the same time so I think it shows how I really...

1469 days ago by dustbunny | 21 comments »

From Queensland Austalia, over 9000 miles in about 7 weeks on an ocean freighter, the Torque WorkCentres have arrived at my home in Connecticut. I have been pacing the shop the whole time, waiting anxiously for it’s arrival, imagining and dreaming about projects I can do with this machine.Yesterday afternoon the tractor trailer pulled up to the end of my 600 ft long driveway and the driver unloaded all 880 lbs of two machines. He was kind and escorted the boxes to my shop front on the p...

Had a full day yesterday, filming the Torque Work Centre,Aaron and Luke came down from Yandina. They make the tool with Keith, who couldn’t make it down.And Stuart arrived with his trusty video camera to take some footage of the machine in action.Had a blast and learned a few more things the wee beastie can do.For a start we just set it up with a router [Makita 3612C ] and did some basic rabbets dados and grooves.Cut an arc and did some angle routing. Pretty cool.\Then we made a board u...
