DIY Lathe #2: The better base!

05-24-2008 01:25 PM by Marcel T | 2 comments »

Hey guys! Taking advantage of the long weekend here in Canada, (so this was last weekend) I made a better base for my dremel. I was taking it apart to see why it was squeaking (trapped sawdust) when the idea hit me – drill the existing screw holes all the way through the body, and get a longer screw to hold the dremel together (like the old screws) and hold the dremel to the base. Well, I didn’t have a screw quite that long and thin, but I did have some short screws of the correct diameter. S...

Squirrel Ferris-Wheel feeder

04-21-2008 02:08 AM by pappyjohn | 6 comments »

Hello All, Here’s a couple of photo’s on the upcoming Ferris-Wheel Feeder for the Squirrels. This set of eight seats will be attached to a rotating ring with hangers for the seats to rotate around. The idea is once the squirrel gets on then they will rotate to the bottom. If they climb up the seats then they’ll continue to rotate down to the bottom of the revolving wheel. The size of the seats are approx. 6 1/2, 2 1/2, by 1/14they are made of some small pieces o...

Wood Tub Project #1: Glue Up

10-13-2007 08:45 PM by bryce | 5 comments »

Thanks Everyone for the warm welcome everyone! I just a young guy that is a beginning woodworker. So if anyone has any tips and suggestions let me know!! The project that I am working on now is a wooden tub. I am using 8/4 red oak and building what is essentially big square box. Right now I am glueing up the wood together to make all the sides. Now I know what your thinking. Wood and water don’t mix. In the past when people have built wooden tubs it was left completely fi...

Projects #2: Gift Box for Father's Day - Glue Up

06-14-2007 06:05 AM by Jeff | 9 comments »

The process continues… Glued it up tonight. I’m glad I could find the generic epoxy syringe at the local big box. I didn’t have time for a trek to Rockler or Woodcraft for a small glue kit. The tip fit perfectly between the fingers and was easy to control the amout of glue dispensed. I’ll be cleaning up the slightly proud ends of the joints tomorrow evening. I hope that goes well considering the fingers are only 1/8” thick. I’m a little worried about tea...

Thorsen Table contest #4: what so many legs you have

04-26-2007 02:47 AM by scottb | 16 comments »

Had a slight mishap today when I went to mill the legs down so they'd be the proper width after applying a "veneer" edge, I accidentally cut all the pieces! I should have left the those at the final width, I got a little carried away. A little creative thinking and milling a few more pieces out of the remaining door stock, and I'll have legs that will ultimately be a mere 3/16ths skinnier, but and I'm able to proceed using only this reclaimed door lumber. I've thought the inspiration ...

Under Pressure I don’t know about the rest of you, but glue up stresses me out. Even though we had dry fit the doors, I feel that time crunch as soon as I spread the glue. These doors are only held together by tiny tenons on the left and right beadboard pieces. The process Set out the clamps and separate the breadboard end to expose the tenons. Glue the tenons of the outer beadboard Clamp it Check for square by measuring across the diagonals Apply diagonal pressure if n...
