Adjustable Height Rolling Outfeed Cabinet #1: Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

06-02-2011 08:53 AM by newTim | 3 comments »

But the past I am condemned to repeat is the creation of a new design that I have never done before, am not certain of the existence or availability of key materials and hardware, and possess the barest notion of what it is I want the thing to do. Welcome to my world. I knew I wanted a sturdy outfeed table atop a cabinet that would provide much needed storage in my small shop and would provide another work surface. If that were the extent of my desires I’d have whipped it out in n...

So you want to go pro #12: You Wanna a Piece of Me ?

01-16-2008 07:10 PM by odie | 3 comments »

I eluded to this earlier. Everyone wants to get rich off of your hard work. You get the raw materials. You create something from the raw materials. A tent and display is bought and set up every time you wish to sell your product. So where does 30% go every time, and right off the top. This 30% is a figure that was arrived at by 5 years of averaging. And more times than not this figure is higher. This amount comes off of your gross sales amount and not your profit. We have always figured th...

SketchUp and Plugins for woodworkers #1: Comp2LayerScene

09-14-2012 11:35 PM by ktkoh | 3 comments »

I have written and released a sketchup plugin that helps organize your drawing components into separate layers and creates a scene that is meant to be used as a 2D dimensional drawing that can be printed. Note that this only works on Components not on groups. This should not be a problem as I think all the experts suggest that each part should be a component because of all the advandages they add. Currently this plugin is available in the plugin forum You will need to regester to be able to...

CYLINDER MAKING #4: Wooden Hinge for Cylinder... Is it possible?

07-30-2012 12:37 PM by BertFlores58 | 3 comments »

The hardest challenge in this series is to make the WOODEN HINGE for a cylinder side. The difficulty of the curve fitting and the alignment of the pin to cater the correct pivot. LID PART . The lid being the one that is on top will take the whole arc that will be close to the outermost part and length will just be enough to hold the post on each end. This must be tangent to the circumference and must be at right angle (at first only so as to route the slot that will hold the pin). You ...

Mirror, Mirror #1: How do you frame an 8 sided mirror?

05-01-2010 02:37 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

How do you frame an 8 sided mirror? Beats me. This is my solution. The construction is a whole new way of thinking for me. Fingers crossed for success. My sister wanted a framed mirror for her kitchen wall. she had a large free hanging one but it fell and the mirror and frame shattered. Of course I can make one right? Hmm…. She wants it 8 sided. I want to bolt it to the wall, not hang it like a picture. Here’s my solution so far. After she had the mirror cut at the glass com...
