Shop stuff #171: Simon and Patrick folk guitar set up and adjustment.

09-22-2019 06:37 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Simon and Patrick guitars hold their own against other guitars costing twice as much. This one belongs to a person just starting out and learning. It needed some minor tweaks so it’s easy to play and does not discourage someone at the beginning of a hobby that is quite satisfying. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #170: Some drawers for the vanity.

09-08-2019 12:50 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

One of those projects that got put to the side while other things were going on. The bathroom renovation I started last year is still not complete, but every now and then I get a bit of time to do a bit more on it. Earlier this summer I found a few days to get the drawers done for the vanity build. I milled up the wood from maple for the sides, used plywood for the bottom, and of course, used cedar for the fronts to go with the cedar cabinet. I also cut the centre panel from the same boar...

How to make a circle cutting jig fully adjustable quick and simple

08-26-2019 03:09 PM by BenhamDesign | 4 comments »

I needed a circle cutting jig for a project, and decided I wanted to make one that is adjustable to whatever size I needed, I also wanted one where I didn’t have to drive a nail or screw into my work as the pivot point. It works great and was relatively simple to build out of scrap plywood laying around the shop. Watch how I built it on YouTube It has incremental swing arm, a non-destructive way to attach it to your material, and is fully adjustable to dial in the exact radius yo...

Shop stuff #168: 1910 Disston rip saw

08-09-2019 02:35 PM by JimDaddyO | 7 comments »

Sometimes you just get lucky. I found this one at a yard sale and was unsure of it’s date of manufacture, but I find out over the course of bringing it back to usable condition. This beauty was in pretty good shape for its age and now it can get back to doing what it was meant to do for another long while. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #166: Making a hammer handle

07-13-2019 11:22 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

I found a small hammer head in a box of stuff I got at a second hand store. It’s about time to make a handle for it. I could use a small hammer and seeing that it’s more for gentle tapping than heavy whacking I don’t have to be too particular on the wood species. I found an off cut of cherry that fits the bill nicely, and who doesn’t enjoy working with cherry? View on YouTube

Last month, I realized I needed a place for my wood

07-09-2019 02:56 AM by gmaffPappy | 5 comments »

It’s been a month in the making, but I finally finished it tonight. It’s a rolling lumber cart. I put sheet goods on one side, lumber stood up on the other. The middle is a mix of both, and I put it on heavy duty casters. Everything went as planned. Sketchup helped me get all the angles right. I really like prototyping in Sketchup. I can design, make all the parts, fit it together, and even create cut sheets from raw lumber and take it all the way to final product. If I can ...

Shop stuff #165: The final Roubo video

07-07-2019 12:22 AM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

Putting the final touches on the Roubo bench and getting it all buttoned up. Wow, what a journey and a learning experience. I love my new bench. There will be some accessories to make for it in the future, but for right now, it is a fully functional Roubo. It came out very close to the original picture I had in my head. That was my plan, and I just kept making parts to suit that idea. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #164: Fixing user errors.

06-29-2019 12:17 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

This guitar has been here before. The owner decided he would try to “adjust” things without the proper knowledge, which is easily gleaned, so here it is again. I go over pretty much everything that is needed on a guitar set up, step by step. Yes, you can work on your own guitar. For some people though, they shouldn’t. You do need some aptitude and knowledge. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #163: Putting the Roubo bench together. With glue this time.

06-21-2019 11:41 AM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

Finally! Assembly time. Let’s get this thing glued up and somewhat functional. It’s getting close to the end of this series and it’s been a long one. It’s been over a year and a half since I cut up that log with the chainsaw into the top for this thing. There is some finishing going too. A few minor jobs to do yet and it will be a complete and functional work bench. Thanks for hanging in there throughout the process! View on YouTube
