"Art Box" Tutorial #4: Corner Splines

06-23-2009 08:18 PM by Andy | 26 comments »

Updated 1/15/12 We now have our box assembled and glued up. Depending on the temperature, let it dry for a couple of hours, or overnight to be safe.Take the tape off and clean up any dried glue. This is a good time to smooth up the bottom to get rid of any rocking.You can double stick sandpaper onto a very flat and firm surface and slide the bottom across that. The problem with this approach is that sheet sandpaper is way too small. You can stick down several sheets and if you go very s...

Split Roubo Workbench #8: Dovetails and the front laminate

05-08-2012 03:08 AM by lysdexic | 26 comments »

With the end cap finished it is time to get the front laminate on but the is slight problem. When I was planing the dog hole strip even with the top I made the classic beginners mistake of falling off the edge. It is not a big deal now but I do not want to perpetuate the slope in the next lamination. So, using the dominos to my advantage I placed a couple business cards on the dog hole strip to elevate the hole. The third photo show the front laminate above the dog strip. ̵...

Turning a Wooden Scoop #1: How I turn a sccop on the lathe

06-27-2015 08:55 PM by Jim Jakosh | 25 comments »

Candy, this blog’s for you!!!!!!!!!!!This is the process I use to turn a scoop from a wood blank on the lathe.I start by defining the volume needed in the the scoop. The formula is Pi x R squared x depth I planned on a 1/2 cup scoop and the volume of 4 oz is 7.218 cubic inches and I want the inside to be 2 5/8” So the formula is 3.1416 x ( 1.312) squared x depth = 7.218. The depth figures out to be 1.33” I start by drawing it out and then adding scrap wood in the area...

Just for Fun... #96: Can You Guess What it Is?

05-14-2015 06:17 AM by littlecope | 25 comments »

Took a little break from the Re-Painting scene and squeezed in some Shop Time… Can You guess what I made?Began with a scrap 2 X 4 appropriately long enough for the task at hand and shaped the first profile with the Band Saw… Since the 2 X 4 didn’t have a very flat bottom, it was clamped between two scraps of Poplar that are flat… The Clamps were Leapfrogged down the length of the big ‘Sandwich’ as it was cut…Which gave this… More Profile c...

Noise from the upper wheel of my Grizzly 14" Band Saw( I'm a newbie on it)

07-07-2013 06:44 PM by DocSavage45 | 25 comments »

I’m trying to figure out my band saw. I’ve been told “get better blades” Will do. I filed the back of the current blade. Changed the tension, checked out the video that is pretty comprehensive about tuning it up. Raised the guide yesterday while cutting some 6 inch fir to trim it down. 1/4 inch each side. @ 6 tpi blade. Now I’m getting a sort of grinding noise from the upper wheel. Before I take it apart…SIGH I’m looking for more suggest...

Lowering a cabinet saw for use by the disabled in a wheelchair....Part 3

05-25-2011 02:30 AM by lilredweldingrod | 25 comments »

Now that the table saw is lowered, more toys need to be lowered to be useful in the shop. So now I’m trying to come to grips with the loss of the outfeed table and the need to relocate other tools for combinations of uses.Today I lowered the shaper 5 inches and trimmed it to be 5/16” lower than the table saw and the same with the band saw. The idea is that I can have them close by for use or the be the outfeed table, What do you think?Everything is on Shop Fox mobile bases the sam...

Ok here we go. If you look back to the Beginning most of the walls were up but still lots to be done. This first shot is ater the exterior was completed, my litle truck and my other pal, Ivy. Overall size 24’ x 36’ with a full second floor. Two oversized doors 8’6” x 10’ for deliveries etc. and lots of natural light with oversized windows. My wife and I unload the trucks and push the wood up to the second floor. The next shots are of the second f...

Grizzly sighted ... near the Rockies ... minor injuries

11-08-2009 08:47 PM by NBeener | 24 comments »

It’s here: .When they tell you that it takes 20 or 30 people to move it—particularly up or down stairs—don’t be an idiot. It really does..I (as in me and nobody else!) had a ‘weight belt on,’ but … I’ll be on Ibuprofen and the gym’s hot tub (and—if I beg—SWMBO’s back rubs!) for about a week. At this particular moment, I don’t even care what this thing will do. I just want to feel better … and THEN I&...
