The Basement #29: Shop Vac - Cyclone and Cart

791 days ago by JL7 | 10 comments »

Always working on the dust issues in the basement…...... Love the Fein vac – Klingspor was selling the Turbo II for $100 off list a few weeks ago, so just couldn’t resist and the Super Deputy is just a sweet addition. The reviews are accurate on this one – it works great. Just hate dragging around all the hoses and crap…....you know what I mean….... This is just a 2×4, a bunch of scrap wood, and the old metal base off of the dust collecto...

Double Tumble Cutting Board

1154 days ago by SPalm | 38 comments »

Or maybe I should call it Two and a Half Steps. Anyway, I cannot believe that I am building another one of these, but heck, they are so much fun. This is a continuing saga of endgrain geometric boards using three contrasting woods. A light color, medium color, and dark wood selection are jointed and planed to the same thickness. I started by tilting the blade to 60 degrees and ripping an edge on all three boards. I then moved the blade over about an inch and ripped again creating a sma...

The Humble Hand Brace - A Beginner's Guide to Restoring, Buying and Using #1: Part 1 - Restoring a Brace to 'Like New' Condition

1077 days ago by Brit | 59 comments »

In a recent tool gloat, dakremer showed off three lovely braces he’d purchased and said “Now I just have to learn how to restore this kind of thing”. WayneC was first to congratulate him and then proceeded to drop me in it (only joking) by saying “Brit has lots of experience in restoring braces”. Later in the comments dakremer said he would love to restore at least one of them to like new condition. Always a sucker for punishment, I agreed to do a blog on restoring a hand brace and I’ve...

Shop Made Scroll Saw - Part 3

831 days ago by William | 21 comments »

If any of you haven’t seen the rest of this build, here is Part 1 and Part 2.Here, I have cut and am test fitting the table. Luckily one of my older sons was home today. He didn’t work because of the rain. If it wasn’t for him, the table wouldn’t have gotten done today. There was quite a bit of digging to find a piece of pecan large enough for the table. That is one of the features I love about this design. It has a massive table. It is eighteen inches wide and thirty ...

Furniture Design #1: Fibonacci gauge

2549 days ago by David | 32 comments »

1 • 1 • 2 • 3 • 5 • 8 • 13 • 21 • 34 – The Fibonacci Sequence I have been fascinated with The Fibonacci Sequence and The Golden Rectangle for some time. I finally got around to building a Fibonacci Gauge that was featured in WOOD Magazine. The guage maintains a consatnt proportion of 1:1.618 between the points. It is used to help determine visually appealing proportional dimensions. I am looking forward to using the guage in future projects. Follow the text below for so...

845 days ago by SASmith | 26 comments »

This is the finished hive body.Constructed from catalpa with kehoe dovetail splines “dipped” in 300 degree(max) paraffin and gum rosin.I wanted a long lasting hive body without metal fasteners to corrode. I think this fits the bill,Outside dimensions are 19 7/8” long x 16 1/4” wide(3/4” thick stock). These are the typical dimensions of a 10 frame langstroth hive. Rip to 9 5/8” wide Crosscut front/back to 16 1/4” and sides to 19 1/8” Fr...

Table Saw setup for Half Lap Joint

847 days ago by rance | 23 comments »

When you need to set the height of your TS blade to half the thickness of your workpiece(regardless of its thickness), try building a teeter totter. A what? Like this:   Get a flat scrap of wood and mark perpendicular lines across equal distance between each other and from one end of the board. This is your teeter totter. Raise your TS blade higher than you expect to cut and rotate it so one tooth is at top dead center. Lay that flat board across the blade where the middle ...
