Making wooden dowel with a router #2: How it is done

12-05-2016 11:24 PM by Pjonesy | 8 comments »

A few people have asked for more information so here goes. Use a piece of scrap timber preferably hardwood about 100mm (4”) x 45mm wide (1 3/4) x 20mm thick (3/4”).For 1/8” dowel bore a 9/64” (1/8” is to tight) hole straight through the length approximately in the centre, then cut a notch 3/4” wide and 1” from the end. This is the gap for the straight cut router bit This notch only needs to go slightly past the back edge of the 9/64” hole.Now b...

Shop stuff #67: Upgrading the shop

12-04-2016 10:40 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

After the coffee table build I took some time to get a bit further along on the shop itself. Doing it a bit at a time is not really the recommended way of doing it, but it is what the budget allows. This is a long term project and I throw a little at a time into it. I never heard of a shop being truly “done” anyway. I didn’t think I had enough footage for a video, but it turns out I had more than enough, so there will be another update in the near future. View on You...

Shop stuff #66: 2003 MIM Fender Stratocaster

12-03-2016 01:18 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I have quite the back log of footage. So I figure I will keep mixing it up and putting out different themed videos instead of concentrating on just the coffee table build (where I am sitting right now writing this). I have done a couple of guitars for this guy, so he must be OK with my work. This 2003 Strat was one he bought on Kijiji and sent it over to me to get it working the way he likes them. A bit of wiring, lots of cleaning, and a bunch of adjustments later and the guitar is just a...

Turned Kitchen Scoops

12-01-2016 02:03 AM by lew | 15 comments »

So I’m down to making gifts for the nurses at my doctor’s office. I rarely visit the office for a “Sick Call” but I do take care of their computers. It’s always an inconvenience for the nurses when I have to interrupt their routines, so I try and make up for it by making each of them a little something every year. My sister gave me this idea a couple of years ago when she gifted me a turned scoop and I’ve been meaning to make some ever since. I had some ...

Life happenings #5: Off topic, but things that need doing

11-20-2016 06:25 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

It’s a work shop, not just a wood shop. There are things that need doing on a seasonal basis around the home. Getting the winter tires on the car is one of them. Now that the summer tires are off, I can give them a good cleaning and inspection. I am trying to make the chrome look as good as it can using a method I saw a few guys doing on You Tube. Not 100% successful, but the rims look much better. View on YouTube

Shop Tips & Tricks #19: The Art of Middles of Symmetries

11-20-2016 03:12 PM by GnarlyErik | 3 comments »

I don’t know why I did not think to include this as a part of my blog about centerlines since it is very closely related. I will call this notion ‘The Art of Middles of Symmetries’.  Simply put, all symmetrical shapes by definition have a ‘middle’, or centerline. Stating that notion as a corollary to centerlines, you might say: “All symmetrical shapes have an EXACT middle centerline.” Take advantage of this simple fact by using it when laying out ...
