My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #789: Let's Have Some SNOW Already!

08-14-2012 11:01 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 13 comments »

These past couple of weeks have been by far the warmest of the year. While I understand that most people have it worse, I can’t help but think if it is this warm in Nova Scotia, it really has to feel hot everywhere else. It is no secret that I don’t like the really hot weather. Unless I can be lounging on a beach somewhere enjoying the sun, it just doesn’t do it for me. My philosophy is that you can always put more clothes on if you are cold, but when you are hot and u...

Roubo Hybrid Bench from start to finish #4: Hostile Takeover

08-13-2012 07:44 AM by Jamie Speirs | 14 comments »

Hostile Takeover Ok how do I handle this situation? Thought that maybe some of the LJ’s May be trained to handle these extremely Sensitive takeover threats on benches This looks like they are set in for a long Stay. I can see a coffee mug & and a can of Pepsi. It looks as if Mama has an accomplices Miss Thembi and there are 7 mini Boxers How did she manage to get past the Jolly rouges? I found them all in the office eating scones. I can see that the...

Got a mini lathe but cant use it :((

08-11-2012 10:25 PM by Woodworker_Collins | 8 comments »

In my last blog entry you may have remembered i asked what is a good mini lathe. I went down to mcquillans blanchards town today and got a Draper 07989 250W 230V Variable Speed Mini Wood Lathe, it has variable speed so i dont have to changed the pulleys, a revoling centre and a faceplate and it only cost €220 + mcquillans always give a 10% discount so it ended up costing only €198 which i think is a real bargain but my parents got it for me for christmas so i cant use it till then:(. I also g...

Katanakake (Japanese sword stand) #4: Fixing stupid mistakes, but it's finally taking shape.

08-07-2012 08:47 PM by BTimmons | 2 comments »

The shims I glued to my tenons are ready to be pared back. Seems like the mortises were just a little less than square with each other, which caused the twist when connecting the two of them with the center piece. So this session involved a lot of me hunching over the bench paring away paper thin shavings. Testing my fit. The top of the tenon cheek is good, but the rest of it is still a little too fat. Shaving just a bit off, and then it fits nice and snug. I also dete...

I suck! At tapered legs

08-06-2012 04:54 PM by woodmaker | 11 comments »

Well, after reviewing many articles on how to do tapered legs, I went to the garage to try it. Yep, I suck! I glued some 2×4 pine together, and then cut it down to 2 1/2 X 2 1/2. Fired up the table saw laid the taper jig (aluminum) against the fence, adjusted the jig until it looked like the proper angle ( I wanted 3/4” thick at bottom and 21/2 at top) Started the cut and darned if it looks like the angle is coming out wrong. It cuts towards the fence and not away from the fenc...

Katanakake (Japanese sword stand) #3: Tweaking the fit, first coat of oil finish

08-05-2012 09:27 PM by BTimmons | 1 comment »

Last time I didn’t have all four bottom surfaces sitting flat. Turns out this was due to the center piece being fitted with a slight twist because one mortise had been carved out with a slight twist. So, by the time the mortise was straightened out somewhat with a chisel, the tenons didn’t quite fit as snug as they should. So on both tenons of the center piece, I glued some thin mahogany strips to shim up the tenons to tighten the fit. These will likely end up being pared or f...
