Compound Slide Rest #1: Using a Compound Slide Rest

01-22-2011 01:43 AM by Bluepine38 | 5 comments »

SASmith posted a blog showing how to make a scroll saw bowl from a flat board. As a slightly challenged72 yr young apprentice I can no longer perform some tasks on a scroll saw, so here is my alternative.I have a 1950s 12” Delta lathe and have a Delta 46-961 Compound Slide Rest that I received as a basketcase with many parts missing and rebuilt. You start the procedure by cutting a circle the maximum sizeallowable by your board and lathe and attach it to a lathe face plate using a sac...

DragonFly Harp #7: 1/20/2011 S-L-O-W Going

01-20-2011 11:36 PM by Donna Menke | 11 comments »

Days and days of mostly just staring at the dumb thing wondering why- oh why- things did not meet the way they should. Take a little off here- then a little off there- shoot!- think I took some off the wrong side. This was not the way to go.My micro-plane was going to be my salvation, but it may have created more problems than it fixed.Talk about creative clamping! Trying to get all the angles right and everything where it is supposed to be so that the screws in the base will end up in the ri...

Making a Violin #5: Carving the plates

01-16-2011 08:21 AM by RonPeters | 20 comments »

Ok, I’ve been busy with life and could only get to the violin as weather permitted, that is until I insulated the garage and installed an IR heat lamp which takes the chill off the air. This is the maple back. I’ve carved guides using templates I made out of aluminum. After aligning the guides to the plate surface it’s a simple matter of carving away the excess and blending. There are 6 templates. 1 through 5 are horizontal left to right with the last spanning the length....

The hands can take a beating when you use them constantly for your craft. A little preventative maintenance can make them go a long way. Here are some tips on how to help your hands stay healthy and function for you.I am not in the healing arts and am no doctor. These are suggestions that work for me and I thought I would pass the information on to you. Be sure to check with your doctor or dermatologist for any medical advice.

Easy Shop Table

01-14-2011 04:02 AM by Lockwatcher | 37 comments »

I started this project after building an assembly table from an issue of Wood Magazine (March 2010). The table was a lot of work (the torsion box top) but the main unit holding the table up was an easy build. That’s when I hit upon the idea of using the same design for a group of extra tables for other uses. I’ve built a number of these already, and am using one as a router table, a miter saw station, and a sharpening station. It is built using standard re-dimensioned co...

Huck is Back!!!!!

01-12-2011 09:44 PM by Huckleberry | 9 comments »

So I have been hit with a lot of emails asking where we’ve been. We took a break and re-focused our material. We had some good things and some bad things on our show. So we hope to get rid of the bad (lighting, poor audio, better clarity ect…) and enhance the good. We have out fitted ourselves with nicer camera equipment and tools, of which we will be airing some buying tips as we wanted to keep it like the average “Joe” shop. So here are some pictures of the upgr...

DragonFly Harp #6: 1/12/2011

01-12-2011 09:24 PM by Donna Menke | 10 comments »

Doesn’t seem like 6 days have passed, but the calendar does not lie. I have a lot to catch up with.First order of the day was to edge join the pieces I would need to have wider- like for parts of the stand legs and the base of the harp.These Bessey clamps are the best.Then I needed to cut the angled sides. This was the most dreaded job, and the first rip (with the grain) on the table saw (my second least-favorite power tool). Took most of a morning to assemble the tool and then to figur...
