simple and effective holddowns

05-27-2009 01:19 PM by moshel | 9 comments »

I have been looking for a way to add holddowns to my benchtop for a while. All the plans i saw called for either complex cuts or glueups or special hardware or reaching under the bench. I ended up with making these, which I find so far VERY satisfying. Actually, they are much better than i thought they would be. The overall cost for the pair is ~5$. ok, lets do it: From 270509 hold downthese are the things you need:1) 2 lengths of threaded rod (i used 8mm). they should be (the thickne...

So you want to turn green wood #1: Introduction to green woodturning

02-05-2008 03:37 AM by Alin Dobra | 1 comment »

Some of you sent me private messages or posted comments asking about the kind of woodturning I like to do. My first reply was a video with 20 minutes summary of how I turn a goblet (the blog entry containing the video is here: ). While the video is spectacular, it helps little in understanding how YOU can learn how to turn. The explanations in the video are scant and my elbow covers a lot of the action. This blog series is designed to expand th...

Jigs and Fixtures #3: Shooting Board Basics - VIDEO

01-13-2008 08:46 PM by mot | 35 comments »

WayneC, Bob #2 and I, have had some conversations about shooting boards. The conversations don’t last long because we all agree with eachother. It’s really the death of conversation.

Mitre Jig for the Table Saw

01-16-2008 01:44 AM by Grumpy | 11 comments »

This is not a new concept nor is it my idea but I thought is was worthwhile sharing. My son recently wanted to make some frames for his university degree & other certificates. He had a little trouble getting the mitres accurate with the basic mitre gauge for the table saw even though I had made an extension piece for it.One of Murphy’s laws says that after you do a job you think of a better more accurate & easier way. Murpy is also that pain in the neck that makes you get it wro...

Hello everyone! Since I discovered Sketchup several years ago (I have been Skecthing since release 3..pre Google) I have spent a great deal of time watching tutorials and prowling through the forums trying to learn as much about this great software as I can! Since I have been a member here I have seen some great blogs by other members about Sketchup and how to use it, so I thought I would throw my hat in the ring! I see allot of people saying I wish I could use Sketchup better, or I gotta lea...
