Shaft Straightening for Old Arn

05-02-2017 09:25 PM by papadan | 14 comments »

Was reading the Arnfest thread Here and one of the posters mentioned having a bent shaft in an old drill press. This method doesn’t always work on some of the newer steels and alloys they use nowadays but has always worked on the good old arn shafts and rotors. I actually can’t tell who or where I learned this process, they weren’t supposed to share it with me. I have watched it done and done it myself quite a few times. To start with you need to have small holes in the end...

Go home shelf you're drunk (twisted corner shelf)

05-02-2017 02:58 PM by Blake Haskins | 0 comments »

A couple years ago I saw a corner shelf that was a conceptual computer design on Pinterest. I thought it was really cool so I searched the internet for a real-life version, couldn’t find it. so I made one, and it was awesome, not even that difficult. And recently, ive been thinking of how I could make it more practical (A.K.A. bigger shelves) so here is my 2.0 model. Id say it looks just as good if not better than the original. If you would like to see the shelf, and its predecess...

Morris Chair #4: Upholstery - Seat

04-27-2017 04:18 PM by PPK | 6 comments »

First off, all credit is due fellow Lumber Jock pintodeluxe, who’s tutorial I copied many ideas from. Thanks Pinto! I built a frame from Hickory. I chose hickory, because it is really tough stuff. The frame gets a lot of tension from the webbing pulling on it, getting sat on, etc. It turned out well, and there was zero discernable deflection after I stretched the webbing over it. I used half lap joints, and added corner blocks to make it even stronger. Next, I start...

Shop stuff #90: Spring maintenance

04-26-2017 01:09 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I gotta take a pause on the tool chest build because…well….spring! I wanted to get this out as it is seasonally appropriate. Winter is over and it’s time to get ready for the warmer weather and undo some of the things that go with winter. A whole slew of handy tips and things that will make life just a little easier. I gotta say, this is pretty much my favourite time of the year. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #89: Tool Chest Pt 3

04-19-2017 02:02 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

We come to the part that I am nervous about. Building drawers intimidate me. I probably over think it. First I make a prototype. Then, once I get that fitting, I use it for a pattern and set up jig for the rest of them. View on YouTube

3/4 = 18mm

04-15-2017 04:39 PM by steliart | 31 comments »

Many times when I’m designing in sketchup, either following a project design, idea or measurements from a video that are in inches, it’s quite confusing for us who did not learn into the imperial system but in metric to get the measurements accurate and loosing a mm there and there that ads up to a significant number.Watching many videos either tutorial or projects etc. when they give dimensions some say i.e. 1/2 inch and transform this to 13mm… well we all know that an inch...

Morris Chair #3: Chair back, pegs & final dye touch ups

04-13-2017 04:59 PM by PPK | 4 comments »

Its about time I throw up a few more pictures. I’ve got my chair completely built from a chair standpoint. The upholstery is yet to come. I finished dying the arms and touched up the dye. The tenon caps got glued in. I made tenons on the stretchers (of the chair back) and mortised the uprights. They were dyed and assembled next. I pegged the joints on the chair back and on the rest of the chair. My method for making pegs involves a drill, s...

Trefoil How-to

04-10-2017 03:20 PM by BanjoBen | 9 comments »

I posted this project over the weekend and got several questions from people about it, so I thought I’d share some of the process in case anyone’s interested. You can find out more about where the object comes from here: http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/summary?doi=10.1.1.314.4240and here:https://arxiv.org/abs/0811.0225Be warned….there’s math in them thar links! The process is pretty straightforward. To begin, I cut bars 1 inch x 1 inch, making sure they ...
