Shop stuff #193: Fancy root veggie bin part 5

07-19-2020 03:12 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, it’s been a while, but I finally got up to publishing a video. In this one I put a nice skirting trim on the bottom of the potato bin. From milling up rough stock to a bit of detail work, mitering the corners and getting some preliminary finish work done. The basic carcass is now complete on the exterior and ready to have the interior work done. https://youtu.be/jG-vyni2OOU

Add an Hour Meter to Laguna 20" Planer (and others)

06-21-2020 03:58 PM by whope | 0 comments »

The manual that came with my Laguna 20” planer talks about periodic lubrication based on hours used (shown below). So I decided to add an Hour Meter as I’d never correctly estimate/remember how much time the machine has been run. I posted a video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/S0mO6SJ8AQM Lubrication Schedule Repeat at the intervals indicated Eight (8) Hours:- Feed Roller Bushings at the Head Screws – Top of the machine= Use a machine way oil like https://tinyurl.com/...

Shop stuff #189: Fancy root veggie bin part 3

05-23-2020 12:57 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Oh my! A lot of work to get very little done. Mistakes are made and not for the last time. Oh well, we work our way through them. This series contains measurements and descriptions and suggestions of alternate methods so you can build this thing yourself. It is a pretty long and detailed series, but I hope I am editing enough to make it entertaining. I think every woodworker will have experienced some errors in their work. I wanted to convey the same situation and not have this series ...

Small Projects #31: Rolling Printer Stand

05-08-2020 05:06 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

Most of the “stands” I create are simple 2X4 & ply creations and this is no exception. However this is one is for our home office and needed to be a little less Spartan. Its the exact height of the computer table – and rolls! The printer is an hp all-in-one with scanner and such. Because of this it needs a minimum 18” height when the scan lid is open. I mad the shelf 20” to give some clearance. The raw 2×4s were planed down to 1-1/4 to remove th...

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 ...

Laguna 20" Planer setup

04-27-2020 09:11 PM by whope | 0 comments »

I ordered my planer from Woodcraft and after discussing it with the store manager, I decided to pick it up at the store as there was no guarantee that the trucking company would get it inside my garage shop. I rented a 10’ U-Haul and an engine hoist. At 900+ pounds, I would have needed to rent the engine hoist anyway to get it off the pallet. I had also ordered a mobile base to make it easier to move, but it didn’t arrive before the planer. When I got it home, it took a while t...

Shop stuff #187: Starting a new build

04-25-2020 03:05 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Last winter I started a new build. It’s still not done yet, but I am starting to put out the videos on it. I am doing a larger series on this one, breaking it into several digestible parts so I can include lots of detail. My aim is to make any woodworker able to build this project by watching the videos. I also mention optional ways of doing things when I can. It is a 3 drawer root vegetable storage unit. But I am making it pretty fancy. It’s going into a home that is a bit...

Small Projects #23: Purpleheart Gun Box

Been burning thru my purpleheart inventory making pipes. So I just ordered more from Craftsmen Supply in Ybor City (Tampa) Fl. They have a great selection of exotics and are good folx to deal with. One of the pieces was calling to me to make a box out of it. Looking around I found the better half’s hawgleg 1873 .45 Colt revolver and a project began.It’s 2-3/8” X 5-1/2” X 12” of 1/4” purpleheart The piece of purpleheart started out as 15/16” x 7-...
