Hi friends! Today I finished my small project and made my garage pants of usual jeans and leather. Regular, ordinary pants destroys very quickly and I tried to strengthen it by leather… Let’s watch my video of the process: https://youtu.be/47LuKMTRLz8

Helpful Jigs #2: Two Piece Jig to Make 1" Thick Bent Lamination

01-06-2014 09:51 PM by rhett | 3 comments »

Too cold to spray finish and waiting on blades, so here is a quick blog on a technique to make matching curves for bent laminations. NOTE: The desired final thickness of your lamination is equal to the diameter of the bottom bearing trim bit you use in this method. Blanks for the jig. 4 pieces of 3/4” ply to make a 3” deep jig. Cut and faired 1/4” template is used to get initial curve on a piece of 3/4” ply. Flush trimmed curve is used as bearing reference...

Workshop upgrades #1: Glenn Drake saves the day...twice.

03-06-2011 05:33 AM by RGtools | 6 comments »

I am currently building a small shelf out of Alder and some mystery white wood to house some of my finer tools so that I do not have to go into my larger cabinet to get them all the time. This is part of a larger initiative to keep my sharp tools sharp and accessible, as someone who only uses hand tools most of the time this is about as critical to my work-flow as paying the power bill before someone fires up their table saw. Roughly six hours got me to this point. I really did not take a...

Ceiling Hung, Folding Sheet Storage Rack #6: It's up, the rack is hanging and Just About Done!!!

11-17-2014 03:15 AM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 0 comments »

All I have to say is that the rack is up and it is going to create a TON of free space, especially that wall! I am going to be able to get a lathe in there some day instead of having a mess of sheet goods! I added extra storage above the rack too. I have a place to sticker lumber now! Please take a look and leave your comments to let me know what you think!

L-Shaped Desk #5: Legs, snipe, joints, finish and a clever (I think) 45 degree angle jig!

08-07-2017 02:38 AM by SauceMan | 2 comments »

Hey, It’s been forever since I’ve posted. I’ll keep the words minimal and show my progress as a set of images as much as possible. That should make scrolling through this blog post pretty quick. First, I really need to work on cutting. I now have a 5 HP table saw (or is it a 3 HP saw pretending to be 5?) and a brand new blade, but I get serious burns. That’s what you see on the left of the top-most leg up there. But there they are, 6 legs ready to go! ...

Hot shop

07-09-2011 05:37 PM by Transition | 18 comments »

It gets a little warm in the shop during the summer. So for comfort I wear shorts. What I have found is that, as I work at the lathe, some of the copious amounts of sawdust gathers in the gap between my shoes and socks. With some woods (esp. Black Walnut for me) this is a problem. Mix the sawdust with sweat, grind into my skin over a couple of hours, and I end up with contact dermatitis (itchy, inflamed skin) on my ankles. It’s not serious but it is annoying. So I think I’ve...
