Two pipe clamps were set up, to clamp the shelf section to the two ends, once the second end was driven onto the tenons. then set the corne...

Exhaust Heat Shield (toy trucks) drilling indexing jig

11-02-2018 02:45 PM by LittleBlackDuck | 9 comments »

Boys and Girls, Haven’t posted for a while other than make annoying comments to others’ posts. Thought I’d slip in this quickie little blog to give you guys a chance to reciprocate. I was besotted by J’1974’s build of one of his models using a “perforated” exhaust heat shield. He even went to the trouble of writing up a blog. With my failing eyesight bolstered by ill fitting glasses, I contemplated that there must be an easier way to do it ...

Ok, Sunday….nasty, dreary, rainy outside the windows…..even a Hail Storm came through….seems when we get a lot of rain…the Dungeon gets a small creek running across the floor to the floor drain….. Life in a basement….of course, the creek HAS to go through, right where I’m working…. And each rain shower, a new wave would come downstream. Ok…had a door to repair.. I had went ahead and drilled corner for a deep counter bored hole&#...

How I made #11: Floor Lamp with LED Light

10-26-2018 12:23 PM by WoodenWorldDenic | 6 comments »

It all started by asking myself how to use a walnut board with a natural edge, which left from some other project. I wanted to put a plexiglas between two such boards, but I later changed my mind and decided to use only one board, because it seemed visually to me more tempting. For the light source I used a LED strip that illuminates the side of the plexiglass, giving an interesting visual effect. The ability to adjust the intensity and color of the light is convenient for obtaining the appro...

Next Kitchen Project #7: Face frame installed..plugs done

10-24-2018 02:40 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

two trips to the shop, today… one to drill and install the parts for the face frame. One drill for the counter-bored hole, then another to do a pilot hole, so a third drill could drive the screws….clamps to pull thing together..to where they needed to be…bead of glue on the back of each part….19 holes to plug,,, I kept the cutout from the bottom rail….figured it could provide enough plugs.. Didn’t burn a one! Drill press was still in “Lo...

Wooden Shackles #4: Accents Not Going as Planned

10-03-2018 12:55 AM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

So I had a thought (this is normally where my projects go wrong) and wondered if I could put some nice accents on my shackles like the real woodworkers do. Maybe some peg caps, or at least fake ones that make it look like less bland. I bought a selection of plug cutting bits and tried the 3/8” one to make small circles. I used a 3/8” inch forsner bit to make the holes … The problem came when I discovered the 3/8” plug cutter doesn’t in fact cut 3/8” ...

That OddLots Ad #24: Sanding, milling, roasting..

10-01-2018 04:46 PM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Ok…shelf is in.. That missing piece on the drawer’s front is replaced….a back, of sorts, was added behind the drawer.. Open area below that is fore cables and cords to come through, from there on down is for air flow to the heater. Last night, after the Big Parade downtown, did a bit of sanding…cleaned up the drawer’s dovetails and the repaired corner.. May add a bead around the drawer..will see after this is upstairs. Far end of the top was cut to...

Wooden Shackles #3: Production and Practice

09-30-2018 01:28 AM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

So I decided to move forward with the styles and designs I’ve made up so far, stained them and I’m letting them dry at the moment. I chose to experiment and stain one set with PVC primer which is purple, I was surprised how well it worked! As a choice to try and do something a little more complicated I drew out a rounded set and cut them on the bandsaw, a tool I was always nervous about. But after sanding and tinkering I’m happy with the result. The plan...

Moxon Vise Build

09-28-2018 12:31 AM by wrenchhead | 3 comments »

I made this Moxon vise to bring my work up to a comfortable height when laying out and cutting dovetails and other joinery. The vise is 24 inches between the screws so I can clamp wide boards. The vise has really good clamping pressure and like all the Benchcrafted hardware I have seen, everything operates smooth and fast. Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vBXvlP4bEs
