Morris style glider #15: Backrest spacers

02-11-2019 03:37 AM by Ryan Tanguay | 0 comments »

Made a quick trip to the local Stickley store to do some ogling, I mean research. I am glad I did, since I was a little stuck on the pivot pins on the backrest. I found that they use wooden washers to keep the backrest centered on the chair, since it is slightly narrower than the chair frame. I was also keeping my pins for the pivot and the positioning snug, but found Stickley’s quite loose making it much easier to reposition. It makes sense now that I think of it. The pins will never b...

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...

Handmade wooden kazoos!

01-07-2019 01:16 AM by TomGrin | 4 comments »

I start with a blank ¾” x ¾” x 5”. I made a little jig to drill them in the drill press. I use a 5/16” brad point bit. It’s not long enough to drill all the way through, so I have to flip them. I switch to a forsner bit and drill the hole in the body. I drill it about 1 ¾” from one end. I cut the top piece on the bandsaw with the aid of a fence. I cut them ¼” thick and 2” long and ¾” wide to match the body of the kazoo. I sand the top pieces on some sticky backed sandpap...

Ukulele #3: Back and neck install

12-07-2018 09:58 AM by Fchilly | 2 comments »

I sanded the uke and laid out the bridge location and installed it. This was very easy with the fretboard already glued in place, and the back not installed yet. After shaping the braces and prepping the neck joint i was able to move on to final installation of the remaining components. Before glueing the neck or back, I set my router a tad shallow and cut clearance for the back’s binding just in the area my router wouldnt reach later rightnear the neck. I glued the neck into place a...
