  2. Turners' Caliper V-Gauge

    To ease the measuring process when turning spindles and cavities, I devised this handy, precise yet simple double duty V-gauge. The whole assembly is about 7-1/2" X 10-1/2" X 1" thick. Only four pieces were required: An isocele triangle made from a 1/4" hardboard scrap A piece of 1/4"...

  5. Natural Cut Wood Rings

    I'm still relatively new to the whole ring making process (been at it for half a year or so). Here's a couple rings I made recently. I only use reclaimed wood. The first ring pictured is cherry, and maple. The second is poplar, and hard rock maple. I've tried tons of finishing tactics, and I...
  6. New House Number

    Got sick of looking at my old house number and had a little time on my hands so I decided to make a simple half lap frame for some new numbers. The frame is cherry with black walnut faceted pins, the inside is pine and the numbers are also black walnut. I've always liked the flowing organic...
  7. Arts & Crafts frame

    One of the simple pieces I'm happiest just looking at. Quartersawn white oak with a glazed finish to get that arts & crafts look. The thin thru-tenons were hand chopped with not too much slop. And pegged into place. There's some satisfaction to have something with no metal fasteners (except...
  8. Tongue Drum

    This is a tongue drum that I made while taking a basic woodworking class in college. It's made with a padauk soundboard, hard maple for the box, walnut splines, and a baltic birch plywood bottom. The side joinery is mitered (with splines), though I left a square section extending up on the...

  10. Curly Maple Joystick

    Here is a project that I had fun working with. This was built for a customer to work on his Playstation 2 console game system. The joystick and buttons are real arcade controls and are connected to a Playstation game pad. All the buttons have a shop cut veener inserted and the joystick top...
  11. Ash Bowl with inlay and collar

    This bowl is Ash, the inlay and collar are Makore. It is finished with a gloss wipe on poly. If you are interested the idea came from the August 2010 edition of American Woodturner. Thanks for looking.
  12. Valentines

    Thank to Steve, I watched his video on how to make this and it came out pretty darn good! Lets see I learned how to use my drill press, band-saw, router, and sander on this project! I am getting there, I will master these tools yet!
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have a bench-top Shop Fox jointer. I noticed that it seemed to be leaving a bit of a cup on my boards (taking too much off in the middle). I took a look at the knives, and noticed that they were a little bit high in relation to the out-feed table. The out-feed table on my jointer is part of...

    I am still trying to learn the proper use and set up of hand planes and I am having some trouble. I am attempting to use the method of setting the plane on paper shims (not under the throat of course) to set the depth, but once I tighten down the cap iron (cam action) it greatly increases the...
  15. Woodworking Skill Share
    I'm tuning all my planes and right now I'm working on my Stanley #90. This the smallest of their shoulder planes. I've watched a good shoulder plane tuning video on FWW by Chris Gochnour and it is all straight forward. BUT, I'm worried about the sole since it is coated with nickel like the rest...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    So, I took a class at Woodcraft that covered Tuning Handplanes. I am now convinced that I need to do more work on my planes. I took my #5 with me to the class because it is my work horse; I found out just how badly my plane was out of true. I had enough time to complete truing up the one plane...

    Hi eveyone. I am a new member! I have an old table saw that I bought years ago used. It has a Paralock Fence on it that has somehow become slightly out of square. I am getting binding/burnishing when I feed the wood through the saw. Does anyone out there have any idea how to true this fence...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    After my 5 year old 6" Delta jointer began to taper boards I decided it was time to take the time to tune it and bring it up to spec. Here's the problem I've encountered in attempting to achieve co-planar tables. The leading edge of the outfeed table (next to the cutter head) is .004-.005" lower...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi All, I picked up a 113.299410 that was in "OK" shape, already cleared the rust paint and glue that was on the surfaces, picked up an OEM blade guard/splitter (original was missing). It came with an upgraded fence, which I've already tuned up, but getting ready to tune the saw it'self and I...
  20. Hand Tools
    Every one always says you have to flatten the back of most new chisels when you get them. I look at the back of new chisels, like say the Stanley Sweetheart or some Narex offerings, and what I see is essentially a flat surface. I fully acknowledge that if you run one of these over a flattening...
