04-03-2020 02:42 AM by Madmark2 | 4 comments »

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-...

Workbench #2: Dovetail and tail vise

03-30-2020 11:25 AM by JimYoung | 7 comments »

While being in lockdown in Michigan, I’ve had some time to continue with my work bench build. I finished gluing up the two slabs for the top and took them to Armstrong Millworks to have them jointed and planed to thickness. I just don’t have the tools or skills yet to tackle this job. While I was there I picked up a few more boards to finish up the bench. Next up was to hog out the bottom of the front top slab for the tail vise and glue the dog hole board in place. I̵...

Simple Router Circle Jig

03-28-2020 01:43 AM by Axis39 | 0 comments »

Simple might still be overstating things… I needed to make a circular hole in a speaker baffle at a hair over 9”. I love using templates with my routers… But, I needed to make an accurate template. I hate taking the screws out of my router bottom plates… I’m always losing the screws! So, I contemplated. Made a few starts. Then, was suddenly hit with inspiration! I have a little battery operated Ridgid Trim Router that I use for soooo many thing...

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...

Small Projects #20: Jigsaw Stand

03-23-2020 11:51 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

Bought a jigsaw to cut out for a dog bowl five or six years ago. Have only used it once since (interestingly enough to cut another dog bowl). Jigsaws have that stupid blade sticking out and I know for a fact if I remove the blade the next time I go to use it (in another five or six years) I’ll never find the blade. I know I have a blade assortment that I bought when I bought the jigsaw but I have no clue where they might be. The blade means you can’t stand the jig saw up and...

Sawstop companion cabinets #1: Incra Router Cabinet

03-14-2020 08:55 PM by sjbob | 2 comments »

Incra Router Table cabinet companion for Sawstop Motivated by a workbench that is now too big for my garage, I decided to replace it with two smaller cabinets which would also match the height of my Sawstop and could act as infeed/outfeed tables. This project is a companion to my Leigh D4R Pro cabinet. My design goals: 1 – Incra large top with router lift (I must say, I am impressed with the Incra system and have really enjoyed using it).2 – Same height as Sawstop3 – Layout for use b...

2 drawer chest #6: Just another day in the shop...

02-29-2020 03:19 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Clamps came off again…a bit of work..clamps go back on somewhere else….gave myself a 2 hour time limit…and wound up with a bit of “overtime”, anyway….. First up? That plywood base panel….out of the clamps, and sanded flat. Then trimmed down a bit….and glued to the bottom of the case… There was one area I couldn’t use the clamps and glue… Nothing to glue to….a clamp would have done more harm than good, anyway&#...

Mandocello build series #18: Gibson style Mandocello Full build

02-29-2020 01:34 AM by Tomy Hovington | 3 comments »

over a year ago I started my florentine style Mandocello based on prints that I’ve presonnaly made. so to be accurate I’ve started this build when I started gathering information about this instrument, size, dimentions, scale length, pro and cons etc… so in reality, I’ve been working on this baby for over 4 years. well last week I’ve finally did the final setup and call it a wrap. I’ve just finished the editing on the full build and i’m happy to sh...

Small Projects #17: Glass Pipe Accessory Stand

02-27-2020 12:26 AM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

My customer sells a variety of pipes and smoking accessories and needs various display stands for the oddly shaped bits and bobs.It’s a ‘whatzis’ stand This is the second stand I made for them. The first was similar but had three rows of 1/2” posts whereas this version has two rows of 3/4” posts. I dropped off the first one yesterday and my customer was so pleased they immediately ordered the 2nd one. The beveled edge detail is common to both stands as is t...
