Shop Stuff #3: Sharpening Gouges and Skews on the WorkSharp

432 days ago by SPalm | 20 comments »

This is part two on my journey of sharpening my lathe tools. The first part was a Fingernail Gouge. Now on to the standard Spindle Roughing Gouge (SRG) and a Bowl Gouge. Both of these gouges are sharpened at 45 degrees. I started out making a triangle ramp to lift the gouges at 45 degrees, with grooves to roll the gouge in, but I gave up on it for now. One problem that I had was that my roughing gouge is not a perfect circle – it is more like a smiley face. It would not roll well in the ...

Pallet Harvesting

1130 days ago by CptWingnut | 11 comments »

So this is my first try at a blog, and I figured I’d start with something that is simple and probably had already been done a number of times before. Regardless, I will probably learn more about blog making than you will about pallets. Pallet HarvestingFirst you have to find a pallet that is worth harvesting, craigslist is a good place to look, but I have had much more luck by finding a company in an industrial complex that receives a fair amount of freight. Target places that have h...

QUADRANT HINGE INSTALLATION

1137 days ago by Jake Brain | 19 comments »

I spent a lot of time looking on the internet for a Jig or fixture to use to install a set of quadrant hinges. The quadrant hinge is a complicated-looking L-shaped hinge that is use in the jewelry boxes that I make. It helps to remember that a quadrant hinge is simply a butt hinge with integral lid stay or stop.The arms of the hinge extend along the sides of the lid and base of the box and the internal stop bar extends from and recesses into a mortise in the box wall and lid. The jewelry box ...

Class On Kevin Rodel's Side Chair #5: The Front Legs

534 days ago by Grampa_Doodie | 1 comment »

The Front Legs Note: When I talk about the many parts of this chair, I name them as if I were sitting in the chair. As mentioned in the previous class, the front legs just might be the easiest major part of the chair to create. I also mentioned in the “Introduction” part of this class that I chose to laminate two pieces of cherry for the front legs. So once I had my cherry stock laminated, all I needed to do was to bring that laminated stock down to 1 1/2 inches thick via the thickne...

Class On Kevin Rodel's Side Chair #3: The Upper And Lower Crest Rails

558 days ago by Grampa_Doodie | 8 comments »

The Upper & Lower Crest Rails Note: When I talk about the many parts of this chair, I name them as if I were sitting in the chair. Now that you’ve completed your back splats, it’s time to create their future home. And that’s where the crest rails come into play. Seeing that these two parts are going to be readily seen from both front or back, I wanted to make sure that I picked out some really nice blocks of cherry with exceptionally beautiful grain. And I’m so glad I did. It see...

Shop Tips & Tricks #10: Clamping Big Stuff

481 days ago by GnarlyErik | 9 comments »

Here are some little tricks you can use when you are trying to clamp something bigger or longer than your available clamps. ‘Joining’ clamps: Sometimes it is possible to simply clamp one clamp to another, with their business (working) dogs to the outside of your work as with pipe clamps, but in the case of door clamps this is hard or impossible to do since you can not rotate the dogs of the clamps. Once neat solution is to use a piece of scrap as a ‘joiner’, sandwiching it between the c...

487 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 9 comments »

I posted this in the review section as well. But I felt the video offers a lot of context on how I use the Dust Deputy as a professional, what tools I use it with, and how I have it set up. This is a lot of good information to consider if you are thinking of getting one. You can see my Dust Deputy review here. Your friend in the shop- Todd A.

No Quarter #1: Shell box - Intro and pattern

1104 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 18 comments »

Hello here this is my second attempt to blog shell boxes. The last one ended up in the wall art ‘Inverted World’. Well this one is a little less spectacular but is based along the same theme of curves. This time a curved pattern but it will have stringing introduced between the colour changes as will become apparent as the blog progresses. The main woods are American Black Walnut and Sycamore with Yew stringing. I will be book-matching woods where necessary. First step i...
