Image Uploading Suggestions

We appreciate your help in keeping our image gallery orderly and easy for others to research.

Please consider these suggestions while uploading your images.

 

  • Name your images before uploading to our gallery, the generic camera file names just look so messy. "Walnut Desk" looks so much better than "DSC19467je69.jpg". You can also name your images after you upload them to our gallery for your convenience.
  • After uploading your images, please consider adding a description so your viewers know what they are seeing and the wood used, the tools used, or even your inspiration for building the project.
  • Please consider tagging your images so our members and guests will be able to successfully search for your image and related images. Tags can be inserted into the "Tags" field. An example of tags and their names should be related to your project. If your project images are of a Walnut Desk with dovetail joinery, than tag the image with "Walnut", "Desk", "Dovetail" etc.

 

Thank you for your cooperation. :)

    Skateboards for my grandson. I had to do a lot of research on these things as I know nothing about them and I mean nothing. My friend was laid up so I couldn't get the maple I wanted to use resawn so more research put me on a new path.
    Made a press out of 4 x 6 pine.
    used sheets of 1/8" Baltic birch that were sandwiched together with titebond III. Found some trucks, grip for the top.
    after taking them out of the press we cut them to shape on the bandsaw then to the belt sander and then handsanded. Then the holes were drilled and lightly counter sunk for screws that hold the trucks.The bottoms were primed for the first coat of black appliance paint, sanded the next day and then another coat following that.
    the following days came the top got 3 or 4 coats of clear lacquer.
    Then the grip sheets were applied and trimmed with a razor blade.
    then come the trucks and the boards were done.

    • Thanks Wood, ya it's turning out to be a pretty good little shop. I sold a bunch of big stuff last summer, and I have been on a downsize kick still. I am trying to get down to only what I need, and use, I am not a collector, so I really want to get to the point where whatever I have, I need. For awhile there I was a collector, it actually feels liberating to of gotten rid of so much.
       
      Wood, that Shopsmith has really proven to be a great machine for me. Thanks to @Gene Howe for recommending me to the Shopsmith. If you are still in the market, these can be had for a few hundred plus. The one I have, I have seen for as low as 750.00 bucks, or even lower, I paid more than that, and the price I paid was still a good deal, fair.
       
      The Shopsmith is not for everyone, you really have to think about the machine before you take the plunge, some folks will either hate it, or love it, I am in the love camp.
       
      Here is my Shopsmith in Table Saw mode, I also have a jointer and a bandsaw for it, laying off the side.
       
    • That looks like the perfect do it all woodworking shop! Love the shopsmith, if I had the money that what I would have probably gotten. I’ve heard people saying they have seen some of the early models from the 1950’s that are still running. Now that’s a quality built machine!
    • Al, that ol stool came from a dear friends home, I used to get my hair cut as a child on that stool. Our friends have long passed, but I have fond memories of hair cuts and adult cocktail parties at that home near the beach. I like it too! Wicker back, wicker seat with a rope weaved cushion.
    • I like that stool with the back rest near the lathe.
    • Outstanding.  Sorry had to use another word other than awesome, everyone else used it already.
