I know, more cheap shelves. Let’s face it, most of us would rather buy tools not shelves. With that in mind here is a shlef that only requires 2×4s, 1/2” plywood, wood screws,& some nuts,bolts, & washers. I have seen quite a few of your workshops out there, And a lot of you have metal buildings with C or Z purlins to columns type metal building construction. So this will be the kind of drawing that I’m posting today. You can apply the same principles to a buildi...

Solving the Washer Puzzle

02-04-2011 01:58 AM by FaTToaD | 7 comments »

Here’s my attempt at showing the solution to the washer puzzles I make. It turned out to be a little harder than I thought. Describing this with just pictures probably isn’t the best way to go, but I’ve included a link at the bottom that may explain it better. To start with, the puzzle needs to look like this: The object is to get both washers on the same loop. First you want to pull the loop on the bottom of the puzzle out far enough that you can slide as washer ...

Tool Mod #5: CHEAP spokeshave tune-up

02-03-2011 06:46 AM by swirt | 24 comments »

Source: Tuning up a cheap spokeshave (in case you know already that you want the longer more detailed version)As many of you know, I prefer OLD tools. I rarely buy new and I am a firm believer in “you get what you pay for.” None of that has changed. ;) I have kept my eyes open for a round bottom spokeshave for over a year. Preferably a Stanley 151R, that’s the one with the gull-wing handles and the two adjuster nuts. I run across the flat soled versions quite regularly ...

Watercolor Dye Technique #1: General Concept

01-30-2011 03:52 AM by shipwright | 6 comments »

This is the blog that I promised detailing my experiments in what I call “watercolor style” aniline dying. My sincere hope is that it will encourage some of you to jump in and help develop what I think is a huge potential of which I’ve only scratched the surface. The idea of hand dyeing pieces of inlay or marquetry came to me because I was frustrated by the limited array of colors available to me in the veneer and solid wood supply to which I have access. I was enjoying ...

Collapsible Castles, my first

01-29-2011 12:47 AM by MasterSergeant | 3 comments »

Being new to the “blogging” stuff here I go. Let me start out by saying I am new to woodworking and my goal is to learn how to 1. use my used/new woodworking equipment safely and efficiently and 2. learn how to cut/carve/sculpture wood into beautify/functional items. I want to be able to complete the interior trim work on the house my wife and I just built. I wanted to learn how to use my new Jet 18” band-saw first and foremost. I just completed a pretty neat little ...
