Drift Redwood Bench Build #5: The longest cut

04-05-2014 02:40 AM by scruboak51 | 2 comments »

I’ve had a bit of a hiatus from posting updates on my bench build, but it’s not for lack of effort. After a lot of thinking I decided to build a metal base for the bench. This will keep with the theme that my work and, by default, our house is developing. It also allows me to develop my metalworking skills. I found a phenomenal local metal supplier. They have an entire section of the store devoted to pre-cut shorts. Just about their entire inventory is represented in one an...

Community Woodshop #3: Momentum is Building!

12-18-2011 08:18 PM by communitywoodshopLA | 1 comment »

Since the last post I have been very busy figuring out how to make this work. I have met lots of generous and helpful people including architects and designers, artists, lawyers, engineers, and teachers. I found a great business partner and we are working on some really exciting ideas. Like I said before, Community Woodshop is not a new idea and when you start something new the best thing to do is find out what has been done before. So, my partner and I decided to visit the shops in the...

Well, it’s installed in the planer. Watch the videos below to see how things turned out. I still haven’t finished editing the machining video, but I’ll get to it. See my first Topic SHELIX CUTTERHEADand Part I and Part II of this blog entry Here I begin inserting the teeth.......and here I finish.

Tablesaw Improvements #4: Jess-Em Mast-R-Slide

06-22-2008 02:29 AM by Jon3 | 3 comments »
