Small Projects #30: Oak Tablet Case

05-04-2020 12:27 AM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

I made this last summer when I got the new Galaxy Tab. Up to now I hadn’t thought of taking a picture of itself in the mirror. Infinity mirror. The case is 1/2” oak and is 1-1/8” thick. 1/2” back, 3/8” dado and 1/4” lip. Each dado is 1/4” deep and have a couple of felt pads as shock absorbers. The fit is snug and the tablet doesn’t move in any way. The back is drilled and countersunk for the tablets camera. Countersink gets rid ...

Best way to sell Walnut, oak, and honey locust slabs?

04-24-2020 08:38 PM by MitchellM4 | 5 comments »

I had a good amount of wood milled in January. I have some time to do woodworking but not enough to get to all the wood that I have. I have black walnut, oak, and honey locust slabs. I am just wondering what the best way to sell it is so I don’t let it go to waste. I am located in Nebraska. Sorry if a post like this is not allowed. Thanks in advance!

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #18: Squares, Squares and more Squares...

04-01-2020 12:55 AM by Bill Berklich | 3 comments »

OK, I’m not a galoot. I use hand tools to augment my power tools. While the quite whisper of a sharp plane on pine like the silent fall of heavy snow is wondrous, the screaming song of an 6 inch jointer and instant piles of wood shavings fits me better. That said I do like a well made tool. Earlier I rehandled a Two Cherries backsaw and honestly I like it better than my Veritas Dovetail saw – more on that later. It got me to thinking about other tools I could make. And then...

Working up the wood

03-31-2020 10:13 PM by BlueRidgeDog | 3 comments »

Time to make myself something. I am still using a pine bookcase air nailed together by my father back in the early 70’s…and I have a lot of books. So I am going to make this: I designed it some time back and just now have the time and energy to tackle it. It is not giant, standing only 60” and 30” wide. Nice size, with a top shelf that will not be too high to be used. I am making two, one for me and one as a spec item for a local shop, so I can put the ...

Shop Cabinet build #9: rack for some chisels, door#2 started..

03-30-2020 04:34 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Taking things a bit slow, lately….taking it easy on the right hand….so had a stash of extra chisels.. Along with a few everyday users….some of the “extras” can go back in the rack along the back of the tool well…about 7 needed a new home, though. Dug around in the scrap pile….wanting a couple strips. 2 that were a bit on the thicker side, and one thin one. One of the thicker strips was cut down to about the right length, to fit inside a d...

Small Projects #21: No Ruler Hexagonal Door Knob Stop

03-26-2020 07:59 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Roscoe, our English bulldog, decided that the spring doorstop was something good to chew on. In fact it was so good he pulled it out of the moulding. Next thing you know we’ve got a doorknob shaped dent in the sheetrock. Woodworking to the rescue! Yayyy! I bought one of those round wall stops, but they’re about the same diameter as the knob and won’t easily mount to the dent (which is obviously exactly where it needs to mount.)Round Stop I had a nice chunk of oak 1...

A Mallet from a Tree

03-21-2020 11:41 PM by Tom | 3 comments »

I recently had a dying oak tree taken down at my home. It was probably 30 or 40 years old, so pretty good size. I had it cut into a couple big logs (to be milled later) and firewood. Before the contractor ground the stump, he cut off a slab down to ground level. I cut some chunks from the slab for a mallet thinking that the wood may be pretty tough from the bottom of the tree. I don’t really know if this is true though. I shaped one of the chunks into an oversized block ...

Small Projects #15: Model Paint Organizer

02-16-2020 12:05 AM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

To make the wonderbread pipes I needed small volumes of several different colors. A trip to the hobby store and I’m now the proud owner of a bunch of small Testor’s paint vials, thinner and brushes. Needless to say in my (admittedly) cluttered shop keeping the paints and stuff in one place quickly becomes an issue. But hey! I’m a woodworker! I can fix that! I rummaged around for a few scraps and built this: The bottom is oak (it was the only piece of 3-1/2” wide ...
