Make a catchall box

03-18-2019 06:06 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

This weeks project I replace a cheap flimsy box with a nice decorative wooden box. I call it a catchall box, because it will literally catch any thing I decide to put in it from a wallet to camera gear. Check out the video and consider subscribing for more content. I post Wednesdays and Sundays and include woodworking, automotive/small engine, and tool reviews. Thanks for checking it out. View on YouTube

Experimental segmented turning

03-17-2019 02:28 PM by stefang | 27 comments »

I turned some narrow disk shaped weed vases from solid birch quite a few years ago. Early last year I decided to do some segmented turning again after a lapse of a few years and I thought it might be fun to try a segmented version of those disk shaped vases I had made before, but only out of pine since this wasn’t a keeper, and no finish was applied. I didn’t have my wedgie sled built yet to cut the segments on the my table saw so I had to use my band saw instead with an improv...

Buick sedan 1932 #16: Wheels, chapter 12 of the plan

03-17-2019 11:57 AM by Dutchy | 7 comments »

During making the Buick Sedan I have made a lot of pictures and they will be used for this blog about the build process. This blog is mostly made in subdivisions according to the chapters of the building plan, but be aware that this is not the same as the chronological build. When questions are there feel free to ask. If I don’t know the answer there are a lot more LJ members which can and will help you. There are many ways to build a wooden model and mine isn’t the best. Somet...

Arts and Crafts Dresser #9: Slow Drawer Dance

03-17-2019 12:53 AM by BlueRidgeDog | 3 comments »

I wanted to finish the drawers this week, but life (and my back) had other plans. Three to go, but no rush. The first nine are done, fitted and the insides are scraped and sanded. I used a trick to fit them a bit easier that I will share. The issue is if you have a half a degree of out of square in the carcass, and make a perfectly square drawer, you have a bit more hand work to fit it (or if you think your drawer is perfectly square and it is off a small amount). To accelerate thi...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #13: Saw jointer handle

03-16-2019 07:28 PM by Bill Berklich | 2 comments »

Knocked out a second small project for the Swap to go with the Split Nut Screwdriver, a Saw Jointer Handle. Generally the antique Stanley’s are in steel. This one is Osage Orange starting with a 1.5” x 1.5” x 12” chunk I cut squared and scraped a blank. Then it was a matter of cutting a relief file and clearence for the saw. Then I installed a brass insert (I’d go steel next time). Some sanding and some poly A small brass thumb scr...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #12: Split nut screwdriver

03-16-2019 06:43 PM by Bill Berklich | 3 comments »

Lots of projects as every other LJ’er but this Split nut screwdriver is (in my mind) a good looking success. Like every project I do there is always something else I need before I get started on the main event. The Split nut Screwdrivers started because 1) so many LJ’ers have made so many really cool saws and 2) I have a couple of old back saw plates and 3) I REALLY needed a project for the LJ Spring Swap… :-) Casting about LJ and the net I came up wiith sever...

Shop stuff #152: A Telecoustic with problems

03-16-2019 06:17 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

It’s not a Telecaster. It’s not an acoustic. It’s some weird hybrid that doesn’t really fill the shoes of either. Regardless, someone likes it but not the way it plays, and no wonder. With a neck shaped like a banana and really high action that make it hard to play it needs some attention and TLC. A big adjustment on the truss rod and shaving down the saddle seemed to do the trick nicely. Naturally, I give it some cleaning and maintenance in the process like I al...

Willy’s jeep #3: Undercarriage

03-15-2019 03:52 AM by FrenchGoattoys | 4 comments »

I managed to find a few hours to spend in the Bar and Drill. I started working on some undercarriage ideas, and this is what I came up with. Still needs some cleaning up, but I thought I would get the pictures up, so if someone had an idea, it wouldn’t be to late to change direction. That is all I got today, cheers.
