Projects in process. . . #6: Roubo try square part two

11-14-2011 08:09 PM by need2boat | 3 comments »

I’ve been out side the shop doing some other things like yard work and little fall camping, plus I was waiting on the dowel plate from LN.That said this weekend I found some time this weekend. The over process I’m flowing is based on a few articles found online on the making of a try square. The first one was completely by hand and the other a bit more power tool friendly. I’m splitting the difference. ;-) I left off in the first post with the parts made and ready to be joined....

Selling Your Wood Work Tutorial #11: Treat your Supplier like they were your Customer

11-14-2011 08:41 AM by Michael1 | 0 comments »

A VARIATION OF THE 80/20 RULE/Treat Your Supplier Like They Were Your Customer: This theory is more directed to business philosophy and practice rather than direct selling but if practiced, can lead to customers in areas you would otherwise overlook. The 80/20 rule as considered by most in business is nothing new. To my knowledge, it is taught in Business 101 at most colleges. I say “to my knowledge” because I did not major in business in college. No sir, I acquired my Masters degree ...

Custom Knife Blocks #5: Lots of Slots

11-14-2011 03:59 AM by wdkits1 | 2 comments »

The fronts of each block consists of 5 pieces of 3/4”stock cut to precisely the same size and all cut at a 9 degree angle on each end. Each of these sections have different slots for different size blades so a set of templates were made to use for consistency and to speed up the process. Simply a matter of tracing the slots onto the blanks. I used a piece of sticky back label paper on the walnut blanks but traced straight on the maple and cherry In order to cut the s...

Foster Planer Restoration #1: Day 1

11-13-2011 04:13 AM by getlostinwood | 1 comment »

After bringing the beast home last night, I tore into it this evening after nearly emptying the garage. It is truly amazing how much wood I have that I havent paid anything for, you would think that would make it easier to get rid of…. But getting back to the project at hand. This is where we begin. It doesnt look like much but I assure you two grown men wont move this around without grunting. I havent taken it off the table yet, tomorrows project but not much left but a carcass.Cutter ...

Hi, I just wanted to post a link to a Youtube video of my wood shop. It’s only half of a two car garage, but I have made it a very functional space. There will be many videos to come, covering many different topics. Thanks for watching and make sure to tell friends about my channel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIlIu8r4VMU

Workbench Construction #1: Joinery for the legs/base

11-12-2011 09:16 AM by Richard B | 7 comments »

So the purpose of this blog post was to help show how I built my bench. There are several things that might be of interest to a new woodworker (like myself). I worried for a long time that I wouldn’t be able to afford a nice bench, or that I would need another 2 grand worth of tools to build a decent one. the bench was built with material that was available at my local home store. Only the vises and the last few board feet of wood for the vise chops came from woodcraft. I did not h...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #1: FINALLY- The first episode is done! You're gonna LOVE IT!

11-12-2011 01:08 AM by StumpyNubs | 63 comments »

Maybe “LOVE” is a strong word. But I’m really excited about the final version of the show, and I think most people will feel the same way. Forget about everything we experimented with before. This is all new. It’s been over a year in development, and And I’d like to think it is a pretty unique format! Here’s how it works… The show is designed to have the feel of a single camera “reality” type show. It is meant to be a glimpse into our workshop as if you were just stopping in...

Toy Boeing Stearman Kaydet Bi-Plane #7: Landing Gear and Struts

11-10-2011 08:37 AM by RandyMorter | 1 comment »

As I mentioned earlier, another LJer, nitewalker41, had modified my plans (see the earlier notes) and I liked how he did his landing gear struts better than my original design so I followed his lead. I bought some 1/2” dowel from Lowe’s. That wasn’t hard. I cut off 3-1/2” lengths and then set my miter to 30 degrees and made another cut on each strut so that the end would be parallel to the “ground” when the plane was at rest. Next I needed to drill holes for the axles. They also have to...

Toy Boeing Stearman Kaydet Bi-Plane #6: Cut out the Main Wings

11-10-2011 08:32 AM by RandyMorter | 1 comment »

I laid out the wings on 10 1/4” x 4” x 24” pieces of poplar (after replacing the one I’d used earlier by mistake). Here’s a picture of the lower wing outline along with a vertical tail piece outline, showing that they easily fit on one of the work pieces. You can also see the notch that I added to the vertical tail template. I laid out both the top and bottom wings. Since my plan calls for a 3-1/8” width on the wings, I decided to rip the 10 pieces using my table saw rather than cut...
