Arts and Crafts Style Bar Clamp Rack

01-06-2014 06:41 AM by Marty Backe | 14 comments »

I recently completed this rack to hold my parallel bar clamps. I try and avoid creating mundane objects, even if they are just for the shop. In this case, the rack is constructed from Baltic birch, but I added some curves and decorative elements to give it an arts and crafts look. All the joinery is accomplished with my Domino (6mm and 10mm dominos), but at glue-up time I still had to deal with 28 joints at once – fun time, but fortunately successful. And here’s t...

The Sawmill #5: silence is broken

05-08-2013 02:30 AM by Monte Pittman | 39 comments »

Probably the most paranoid I have ever been starting an engine. But start it did. Purred like a Kitten. Tracking worked wonderful. Then with breath held, I went through the log. SWEET! I couldn’t take video since I was alone and kind of had my hands full with other things. This was a Beetle Kill Pine log. Look out Andy, I am coming thru!

Ki-zuchiJapanese plane mallets Blog Since I have quite a few Japanese planes now and they are more and more in use, I wanted Japanese plane hammers or mallets to make adjustments.This especially since some of my planes are vintage and I could see how much the irons were damaged after years of use.They are also used to strike on wood or delicate tools.The Japanese chisels are used with a hammer not a mallet. As so often Toshio Odate has been a source of inspiration, also sucking the web ...

Desk / shop lamp #1: First images and web site for plans

03-16-2011 11:14 PM by PopsHuckster | 7 comments »

I saw a lamp like this about a year ago and was intrigued by it’s design. I didn’t find a pattern for it until last Winter when I couldn’t get back out into the shop to do any work but downloaded the plans. I recently found a newer set of plans at the ‘Instructable’ site and downloaded them too. http://www.instructables.com/id/Woodpunk-LED-Desk-Lamp/ I was designing an LED lamp for it to replace the original high intensity lamp on the first one I found when...

SPIRAL DESIGN #6: Hexaspiral - The triangulation way

03-26-2011 03:25 PM by BertFlores58 | 11 comments »

I decided to make a realistic work in converting scalenes to create a spiral design from a hexagon origin. At first I was thinking of the difficulty I will be facing in constructing it. Take a good look of following designs: THE DIFFERENT COLOR AND BIGGER TRIANGULATIONS. THE BLACKHOLE—The black and white in smaller strips In a way, it looks easy to construct however, creating the acute angle of less 5 deg is difficult. Here are the steps I made: STEP 1 – Make a hexa...
