What's coming off your mill? #1: The first big logs

03-14-2022 06:05 PM by bigblockyeti | 9 comments »

It was mentioned to me some might find my milling experiences entertaining so here’s what I’ve been up to on and off the past week. I’ve struggled in the past between getting larger diameter logs, up to 26”, or longer logs 10’-12’ as large of a diameter as I could handle without the use of heavy equipment which I don’t have readily available. I reached out to someone offering free logs without much of a description and a poor picture that really...

‘Gilligan’s Island’ Roubo Workbench #1: The beginning of the end of what's been a very long beginning...

02-07-2022 04:37 PM by SMEAC | 6 comments »

I’ve named this ‘Gilligan’s Island’ AKA: Gilligan… the reason for such a name (doesn’t everyone anthropomorphize their tools/builds? ????) It will become immediately understandable for the name. About a year and a half ago (I think, guess I should go back and look at the date of my drawings/cut list/shop notes), I purchased (12) 2”x12”x12’ southern yellow pine lumber (SYP]. Most are relatively clear, have no knots, and just the occasional inclusions in any of the piths. I’m...

I came up with this idea to use my cedar wood to make a desk. I am planning to make the legs, frame, and drawer fronts of cedar logs, and the paneling of cherry that is slightly scorched.Does anyone have any more ideas to add to it?

Anarchist Workbench Build #1: Getting started.

11-24-2021 03:58 AM by Lazyman | 7 comments »

I have been thinking for a while that it was time to finally make a real woodworking workbench. I have been using my assembly/outfeed table as a workbench and even added a quick release face vise and some dogs but it just is not great for work holding when using hand planes. I considered several different bench designs and narrowed it down to a Moravian or one based upon Chris Schwart’z Anarchist Workbench. I really like the looks of the Moravian and the portability but finally...

Starting out

09-27-2021 02:14 AM by AussieLarks | 2 comments »

Slowly this little project is coming together thanks to some great assistance from PJonesy in NZ, thank you sir. It took time, but after reconstructing the steering wheel and column we have a working steering system, fairly critical me thinks. Then the positioning of the body on the chassis was freaking me out. Nervous wimp I know. What if I glue it in the wrong spot with too much or not enough overhand. A timely PM to my mentor in Auckland and we’re looking good. The darker wood is...

Spatula repair #4: Wrapping it up

08-01-2021 08:37 PM by Dave Polaschek | 8 comments »

I started today by picking up the spatula and feeling where the handle didn’t feel right. Mostly it was a matter of the corners needing to be rounded off a little more, so I got out the small HNT Gordon small spokeshave and started using it on the corners. I’m getting to the point where workholding can get challenging, but my big twin-screw vise is pretty handy for holding onto odd-shaped things, and by skewing it slightly, it holds the handle just fine while I’m fine-tuning the shape....

Spatula repair #3: More shaping

08-01-2021 01:38 AM by Dave Polaschek | 14 comments »

Spent a couple hours today shaping the handle further. I started with a spokeshave, just eyeballing a comfortable shape. Then on each end of the handle I marked guide-lines for a taper at the end, and cut to them with a knife. Then I used some 60-grit sandpaper to fair the sides and edges to the corners I’d cut. Going back to the knife, I trimmed the corners a little further. Then sanded again to get nice rounded edges leading into the end grain on both ends of the...
