Small Projects #31: Rolling Printer Stand

05-08-2020 05:06 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

Most of the “stands” I create are simple 2X4 & ply creations and this is no exception. However this is one is for our home office and needed to be a little less Spartan. Its the exact height of the computer table – and rolls! The printer is an hp all-in-one with scanner and such. Because of this it needs a minimum 18” height when the scan lid is open. I mad the shelf 20” to give some clearance. The raw 2×4s were planed down to 1-1/4 to remove th...

So is it just me or when I hear the words “self quarantine”, I also hear “Perfect time for a big shop project!!” I am in deperate need of a new tool wall.

And so it begins, Here’s roughly what needs to get hung up, all in specially designated holders ...

Small Projects #7: Clamp Stand

01-27-2020 09:57 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

A clamp rack was about the first thing I put up. Nine months later I’ve got more clamps and the old rack was overloaded. I built this rack out of 8’ of 1×4, 8’ of 1×2 and a couple of feet of 2×2.Completed project The clamps hang by their handles and the 1×2 acts both as the hanger and end stops for the different clamp lengths. Spring clamps and the smaller clamps are on the sides. The whole thing is on wheels so I can move it around when needed. ...

Small Projects #6: Dog Feeder

01-27-2020 01:26 AM by Madmark2 | 2 comments »

Dogs! We have two sizes, small and bigger. Roscoe is an English bulldog who doesn’t like to share with the other, smaller, dogs. Due to extreme inbreeding Roscoe can’t eat if the bowl is flat on the floor. The better half had been holding his dish by hand twice a day until I built this simple dog bowl stand. It’s just at the right height for him. It was built out of some 2×10 and 1×12 scraps. I beveled the corners of the sides to make it less of an ankle biter....

How I rescued my Portable Drill Press

02-01-2019 11:01 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 13 comments »

Boys and Girls, One of the best drills I owned in the past was this Triton drill. However, it goes back to the days when men weren’t pansies and had the fortitude of lifting up a heavy cordless drill in one hand. While every time I picked it up, I got a better workout than competing in a triathlon, the battery started to develop an inferiority complex… Though after 12 or so years I’m not surprised, it’d be cheaper to send the missus of for a boob job (both of them) rather tha...

Momi-Giri #2: Yotsume-kiri (four sided) bit

05-26-2018 08:49 PM by aerialcopper | 0 comments »

Here is a simple method for making a “yotsume-kiri”, a gimlet bit for bamboo/wooden nails. For this gimlet, I wanted to use the fewest tools possible. You can see my method for making the handle here. I used annealed 1/8” square 1095 steel key stock which cost $1.08 from McMaster Carr. Any medium or high carbon steel will make a nice bit: O1, W1, A2, 4142 all seem to be available and economical in small sizes. Even mild steel (nails, spokes, etc) would probably be fine fo...

Momi-Giri #1: Illustration and Introduction

05-21-2018 07:49 AM by aerialcopper | 1 comment »

Hello everyone! I am a new member to lumberjocks, despite having browsed often since 2011 when Roy Underhill inspired me to start woodworking with hand tools in my dorm room at the time… I filled out my profile page if you enjoy walls of text or want to know what I’m doing here now. In short, I’m focused on illustration and design with the intent to spread knowledge about hand tools. There is a lot of traditional hand tool knowledge that bears repeating, yet a lot has...
