Work Shop Organization #2: Power Tool Storage Update

01-02-2015 11:14 AM by Nate66 | 3 comments »

After drawing the plans, I went to the store to purchase the lumber to build the storage box. Had to make a few substitutions due to the price of lumber here in England. Instead of using ply, I settled for MDF. Still quite expensive but nothing near the price of ply or pine. Anyway, I will post pictures of the work in progress.

Treadle Lathe workbench #5: lots of progress on frame today.

04-03-2009 04:00 AM by jth2bmtsu | 4 comments »

Assembled lots of the frame today, thanks to my brother’s help. We also were able to find some wheels 40% off. I think adding these to the project is a good idea considering how heavy this thing is going to be when finished. The frame dimensions are approximately 5 foot long, 3 foot wide. The next step will be to get the flywheel spinning on its axle, but will save for another day.

Desk build #5: Nurses desk, finished

09-02-2009 10:19 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

The desk is finally finished. My niece wants to stain and poly it herself so I’m done with it at this point. Back up to any of the other blogs for background info on this build. The second picture shows the drawer open and the keyboard tray extended after the front cover is pulled down. A magnetic latch holds it in a closed position. Next build: believe it or not, a pellet stove box to hold stove pellets, made to look like a couch end table. Hmm.

Finishing Info for the Woodworker #2: Wood Prep Before Finishing

01-20-2015 03:40 AM by pjones46 | 1 comment »

Wood prep before finishing The secret to perfect finish is proper sanding of your project. All surfaces should be clean and free from all dirt and oils. Prep sanding is done with progressively finer grits. On unfinished wood, prepare the surface by using medium grit paper first, and then progress to finer grades. With most raw woods, if you are hand sanding, start sanding in the direction of the grain using a #100-150 grit paper before staining and work up to #220 grit paper. You can make ...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #7: Fixing mistakes

03-15-2015 04:42 PM by ic3ss | 6 comments »

I forgot to update last week. I didn’t get much done because I was busy fixing a mistake. In episode 6 I showed a picture of the end tenon and the lead screw channel cut out. The weird thing is that the huge mortise cut into the end of the tenon. The mortise was too wide and I didn’t notice until last week I was thinking about it when I was in bed. That’s when I do my best thinking. I got up in the morning and checked the drawing and I was right. The drawing says the mortise...

Step number 4 gets into actually using your new or old traditional woodworking hand tools to create something! But just like a bike a car, or a sword, these tools will work properly and get you where you want to go (e.g. building something beautiful) if you learn how to wield them properly. So check out these videos, and come back for more…I’ll be adding more and more videos over time; beginning with the fundamental tools and moving onto the specialty tools. 4.1 How to Use Hand Planes ...
