Half scale Bombe Jewelry Box #1: First time Bombe

02-26-2012 05:26 PM by KPW | 7 comments »

Here are some prelim. pics of a 1/2 scale Bombe chest I’m attempting. I’m using the Fine Woodworking plan that’s in the Period Furniture book by Taunton Press. Had to take the 1/6th drawing and have it blown up to 1/2 scale by a local print shop. Cost $8. What a deal ! Made alot of mistakes so I’m glad I’m trying it out as a smaller version before attemting one full scale with expensive Lumber. I’ll post more pics as I go.

Laziness

My old (like 50 years old) Craftsman compressor gave up the ghost last week. So I bought a passable one from Northern Tools and decided it was time to wire my shop for air.I took my old air hose and a bunch of T’s and connectors and brackets and ran hose around the shop I will soon have air within arms reach throughout the shop. I’ll take pictures when I’m done.But right now I’m feeling pretty good about it. Lee

New Life for a Columbian Woodworking Vise #1: Columbian Woodworking Vise Find

02-18-2012 07:09 PM by hhhopks | 3 comments »

I just got back from a woodworking tool estate sale. There were many good buys. I would of purchase a lot more but ran out of money. I spotted this woodworking vise and noticed that it is a quick release. I already got an old vice for the workbench that I am currently building, but it is not a quick release. I thought I would give it a go. I am taking a chance in buying a vise that wouldn’t turn. For $25.00, I don’t think it is much of a gamble. Here’s what I have foun...

Pennsylvania Spice Box for Mom #1: Milling Wood and Cutting Parts

02-16-2012 08:21 PM by SPHinTampa | 4 comments »

Like most of you out there, I think my mother is the most amazing woman on the planet, and I wanted to find a way to express that to her. My mom’s birthday is on January 2nd, I feel very bad that she always seems to get short changed on the birthday celebration because everyone is tired from Xmas and New Years. I wanted to give her a very personal present this year to show how important she is too me. I was considering a jewelery box and when I saw this project in FWW, I decided ...

3 start rope with a 15' radi.

02-15-2012 05:41 PM by grosa | 3 comments »

Has anyone ever done a rope turning on a 15” or more radius ? I have been thinking about this for months. It can’t be done on the legacy mill. I don’t know if there is any other way other than carving it by hand. Do any of you talented wood workers know of a way to do this in a repeatable way ?

Dafting table

02-10-2012 03:09 AM by DonR | 1 comment »

a week ago I won a Hamilton Drafting table in a surplus auction from my local university, since then I have been sanding my hands off to re finish it. The biggest challenge has been the drawing surface. it had been used in a machine shop and had many straight line cuts in it as well as a number of pits and chips from machined metal parts. I have now done three applications of joint compound to fill these cuts and dips and am happy with the surface. I have sanded it down to a 320 grit and will...

Kitchen Island

One of my on going projects is the kitchen Island… The other day finally got round to plumbing in the dishwasher drain pipe, just need to do the main feed to it. (a friend will do this as he has the crimping tools etc.) Also finally put a shelf in for the microwave oven. Which was bigger than our last one, hence the change around where it went and my other the shelf unit project. The Island has dishwasher, and a bar fridge under it, and then at the far end shelf for the microwave. Look...

Birchbark Canoe made by an original master

01-31-2012 08:18 AM by daltxguy | 5 comments »

This has to be the most amazing woodworking documentary I have ever seen. At every step, he does something I would never have thought of. This documentary shows how a canoe is built the old way. César Newashish, a 67-year-old Attikamek of the Manawan Reserve north of Montreal, uses only birchbark, cedar splints, spruce roots and gum. Building a canoe solely from the materials that the forest provides may become a lost art, even among the Native peoples whose traditional craft it is. Th...

Work Bench Constuction Journal #1: My Dream Workbench - A Journal of Progress

01-24-2012 10:41 PM by Ron Ramsey | 21 comments »

I have finally gotten around to making a real workbench for my new, and smaller, shop (see my previous entry). I am in the planning phase right now. I’ve been pouring over plans, books, philosophy of workbench design. I guess it’s safe to say I may be over thinking this. But the design is half the fun. So, I’ve put together a journal that you can download and look at. It has pictures and explanations of some of the design considerations I’m mulling over. I am ...
