A Table for the Gazebo #2: Glue up the top

05-16-2021 06:48 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Need to joint the edges, first.. Had a choice between Jointer planes….settled on the smaller Millers Falls No.15…..instead of the heavier Stanley No.7c…... Watching how the grain is running….first edge done. Get a couple more edges done. I can use one edge to check another… Top one has a slight bow to it….might be able to caul that out? Kept laying the boards out, trying for best grain matches.. Even used line up marks…. Finally,...

Sawmill Short Log Clamp #1: Adjustable clamping system for short logs on a Woodmiser

05-16-2021 01:56 PM by Jim Jakosh | 4 comments »

I was given an apple tree to cut down and the plan was to make boards out of it rather than all logs for turning. I had never had any apple boards before so i consulted with LJ KPOSTY about doing it on his sawmill. The clamping setup would not hold a log that short (33”) so I made him a clamping system similar to the one John Goodwin uses at the Dead Tree Salvage mill in Casa Grande, Arizona. I had to modify the location of the front rail because the bar support on the right side is...

Sadly, Grumpy has passed away after long battle with Lukemia

05-15-2021 12:29 PM by Grumpy | 24 comments »

To Dad’s lumberjock buddies I know Dad enjoyed to share his love of woodworking on this site and the banter with his buddies I intend to finish his final wood turning project he’d started, but was to weak to finish. Some of his beloved wood offcuts that he could not bare to part with, will be interned with him. SincerelyIan (Son)

What is a hentai

05-14-2021 01:45 PM by littleLarry | 12 comments »

So I was minding my own business watching the san diego padres play (best baseball team in all of history) and the I heard a loud bang come from my eleven year olds room and I ran in his room to see what happened. You want to know what he did he was jumping on the bed and he had hit his head on the ceiling fan luckily he didnt get hurt, but what struck me as odd was the second I ran in he shut the TV in his room off immediately and I asked what he was watching and he said I wouldnt like it it...

Journey into Woodturning #57: No chuck, faceplate, glue block or worm screw... make a plate on a lathe

05-14-2021 02:16 AM by MovingChips | 2 comments »

Was asked if I could turn a plate between centers without a chuck, glue block, faceplate or worm screw. I thought about it for awhile an decided on a possible solution. I put it to the test and here is what I came up with. Take a board, cut if round on the band saw. Drill a depression with a forstner bit lager then the width of the spur and attached the live center, bring the tail stock up to lock the wood tween centers. turn the outside edge to round. Move the tool rest to the inside betw...

A Table for the Gazebo #1: Start up, top first

05-14-2021 12:06 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

OK, there is a brand new Gazebo sitting on the back patio…has a few chairs. Would be nice to have a table to sit in-between the 2 rocking chairs….and set my cold drink on this summer…maybe a plate of snacks? I still have about 15 bft of Ash lumber…..Maybe build a table out of that? So… Have three 1×6 x 4’ planks….hauled those to the shop. Weight restrictions meant one at a time.. With the worst of these three on top. there are sti...

Keela's Urn Box #5: Hinges and Finger Lift

05-12-2021 09:35 PM by BrettLuna | 0 comments »

Here’s where I had to deal with the consequences of cutting the lid’s curved profile, before freeing the lid from the box body. You can’t mortise hinges on a rocking horse…not sanely, anyway. I had a waste piece left over from cutting the box body down to size, so I traced the lid profile onto it, cut it, sanded it, and stuck it to the lid with double-faced tape. That did the trick and I was off and on a roll. So much so, that I didn’t take pictures of ...

Saw Till #2: Sides, bottom and drawer box done.

05-12-2021 05:55 PM by controlfreak | 0 comments »

The bottom was dovetailed to the sides. The shelf or top of drawer box was done with three through tenons mostly because I wanted to try doing them. It worked out okay but they were not as tight as I would have liked. I guess it was because I used a knife wall when marking but that is not the same as “leaving the line”. I think next time I will try to under cut the tenon a bit or come back with a square and move the line in a bit.I still need to dovetail the top on to the sides. I...
