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

New desk for my computer #1: Start up, plans, and lumber

06-29-2019 06:25 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

This is what I have now,,, Been around for a while….need something with more drawer space, and a better “hutch”...Picked up a load of 1×6 Ash… Then made a little sketch…. Figured I can make a hutch once the desk itself is made….Single Brain Cell Sketch Up then made a paper Plan.. Sides were laid out as frame & raised panel…need 3 sides made ( there have already been a few changes in those measurements, too) and a drawer unit that ...

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

Workshop 2019 #8: Miter Saw & Compressor Cart: Part 2

06-20-2019 04:44 AM by KettleWorkshop | 0 comments »

So the cart is..mostly done. Or it was.. There is a crucial point when a plan/design meets reality. At this critical point one of two things happen;1)Everything goes great.2)You notice problems you had not foreseen. For my prior two projects (The Assembly Tables are technically done, just awaiting legs until the project is posted), everything went rather well. Didn’t run into any serious issues or need to step back and re-evaluate the project. This one though…not the case...

Workshop 2019 #7: Miter Saw & Compressor Cart: Part 1

06-16-2019 04:29 AM by KettleWorkshop | 0 comments »

After the completion of my Lumber Cart, it was time to build a new home for two items in the shop that have been vexing me. My Kobalt 10” Sliding Compound Miter Saw My pancake compressor Both of these items have been floating for a while now and need a home. So i designed one. Its fairly utilitarian and not as snazzy as some of the full built in permanant miter stations. For those that have been following along; permanant floor space is at a premium so everything has to ...

Shop stuff #162: Finishing an acoustic guitar bone saddle.

06-13-2019 09:37 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Getting the carving done to intone a saddle on an acoustic guitar. This is a part 2 of a series, but there was also a video on Guitar intonation theory in between that I used this guitar for. There was also an older video on preparing raw bone for this purpose last year. Bone is a pretty neat medium to work with. A little different than wood, perhaps a little easier because there is no “grain” as such to take into account. View on YouTube

Workshop 2019 #6: Lumber Cart: Part 3 : Finale

06-10-2019 03:42 PM by KettleWorkshop | 2 comments »

So the lumber cart was all but done and just needed the last piece, the drawer. It’s now done and fits nicely in its intended hole. The drawer is constructed of a 3/4” Birch Plywood bottom and face, which are pocket hole screwed together, along with glue. The sides and back are 1/2” Plywood that are glued and 1” brad nailed together. There is no drawer glides or dado cut here, just a basic fit it in the hole. As a note, I will be applying some paste wax to the...

Workshop 2019 #5: Lumber Cart: Part 2

06-07-2019 05:21 AM by KettleWorkshop | 0 comments »

Onward with the build. Had some time tonight to get the last major pieces in. This would be last front piece and the short cuttoff support. The two outer sections support small long cutoffs and the larger single middle section supports the medium sized ones. What about that hole? That’s for a drawer that will be the last piece of the build. That will be for all the random small cuttoffs that I want somewhat contained. And I also got to test the fit of one of my two assembly ...

Shop stuff #161: Roubo vise completed

06-06-2019 04:07 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I built and installed the anti-racking device for the vise. I went kind of old school on it. It was easier than I thought. A couple of mortises, some holes and away we go. Now that the vise is functional it will soon be time to get into the final details of getting it all glued up and completed.
