My Clubs and Organizations

  1. in a building no longer exists....back in 1968..Freshman year...Industrial Arts Class. We were given a "Grade Sheet" of 8 types of wood joints. Each joint was shown as a drawing...with 2 _ _ areas beside it...when each joint was completed, you put in the date, and the Teacher recorded the grade...you had to pass each step...BEFORE you could use anything besides these tools.. To include the bench vise. You went to the tool crib, and signed out the day's tools you needed....at the end of the class, they were returned to the crib. You also spent one class period IN the tools crib...keeping track of all the tools. Joints? Simple Butt Joint Mitered corner joint half lap joint Bridle Joint Rebate joint Mortise and Tenon joints Dovetail joints ( one dovetail as a half lap joint) Dado joint Each day, you'd sign out the tools, put on you blue denin work apron....lay the sheet on the bench and get to work....IF it was shop time...other days, you would be taking a drafting class.. This evening...I went out to Lowes, spent just under $20 on 3 boards..(2) 3/4" x 2-1/2" x 4', and (1) at 3/4" x 2-1/2" x 6' Plan is to re-create that wood working test...boards will be hand sawn to 6" length...to include laying out that cut, and sawing it. The Butt joint? may or may not do that...the Miter joint..will get turned into a mitered half lap ( to keep you on your toes) IF this sounds like something you'd like to see, AND DO....Class will start next week... Let me know..
  2. Ok, This is a mess.. And so is this.. Broom is needed.. Both here, and the work area.. Fancy planes have to be put away.. And closed up to stay clean.. As for that Messy Bench? "Clear For Action!" Take a good look, as it won't stay like this very long.. Pine that is available right now? Needs a Project?...Maybe build a case for... With this as a "Tool Kit"? Very Interesting Maybe I can get two people to try to get this.. Up to the Fire Pit? Yeah, right... Will leave these for later.. Panels to make bottoms for Cases... Stay tuned...
  3. Decided to build a case to stash a few chisels in...maybe keep them organized a little bit better? Box that will be a Pattern of sorts.. Is just a smidge too small...so.. I did have 3 of these in the shop...1/2" x 5-1/2" x 24" Pine...this third one will be a lid, and the rest of the drawer parts... First few cuts, were for a back, and two ends... The board underneath was from the second board.. And will be the "Base" of the box....and on which the drawer will slide on. Couple more cuts.. Drawer front, and the front of the case...was trying to match up the grain.. Came close? Turns out that 5-1/2" was a bit TOO tall...decided to lower things about 1/2" or so... While making sure the fronts stay lined up... That was about it for today...my "Get&Go...got up and went..." Next time in the shop? Have some joinery to do...starting with the ends....and connect them to the back.. Then connect the front top...then a groove to house the floor of the top compartment...then drawer building 101.. Might take a few days? Stay tuned..
  4. As it would be a nice place to store these things.... Has to be out of pine...Oak would corrode these...Need a scrollsaw.. And 3 pieces of 1 x 6 pine...like this one.. This one will be the lid of the case...planed because it is cupped a bit. May have put too big of a blade in the scrollsaw, was hard to make a few turns.. Will clean this up and out, tomorrow. Kind of hard to see..but... I wanted a solid glue-up.. as these 2 were also cupped,,,so I glued the cups together. Letting this sit until tomorrow..then plane it down smooth and square... I found a bit for a Brace drill that is a hair oversized...So I can drill out a spot for each Die....haven't decided whether I remove that one Die from the holder, yet. Still have these boards available.. 1/2" x 6" x 24" planks...Maybe a case for the "New Chisels"? Stay tuned..
  5. Remember these? That have since been resawn down a bit.. Faces flattened.. Marking gauge, the "New & Improved" one..to lay out for dovetails... Then a little bit of layout work.. Yep, I do "Pins First" then a wee bit of a saw... Chisels and such to chop out the waste, mark the tails by using these pins to trace around...saw and chop.. First dry fit... So, in 90 minutes of shop time today...rinse and repeat, until.. the other 3 corners are done... So, what will be going into this case? these 2 Stanley No. 77 Mortise gauges....yellow lines? I need to make a holder/rest for them long arms to sit on/in...will add 2 notches. Need to also cut a bottom panel..and work on the lid a bit After that? I might just see how fancy I can get? Stay tuned...
  6. There's nothing quite as pleasing as cutting through-dovetails for a box. Straight forward in execution and satisfying when done.
  7. Thin scraps of Pine, ASh and 1/4" Plywood...and have 2 days to build it? Start with the Infamous Full Sized Drawing... . Besides a square..needed a full sized "Bottle" to lay out the spaces.. Lines are drawn to the thickness of the scraps... about 1/4" thick, or so...layout square, two of them.. Lay out and mill 2 ends out of the Ash blanks.. Use the lay out lines to lay out for some slots.. And then layout for the matching slots in the dividers.. Then decide on HOW to attach the dividers to the ends.. Finger joints at the corners...not sure what to call the half lap joint... And that was just an hour last night...have all the other notches to mill this afternoon. And..decide on a handle of some sort.. Stay tuned..
  8. Have some "left over" Pine....not all that much... Figured I could cobble something up? They have a few bad spots to get rid of.. And.. Maybe cut the offending section out with the Mitersaw? Note the reflection on the saw plate? Shows I am cutting almost a perfect 90 degrees...depth stop were a hair too high, though.. Kind of rough right at the end...Didn't take all that long to do.. About 10 full strokes usually was enough...Results? That pine panel will be the bottom of the box...4 sides? Cut to match that panel...beside these parts.. Should be enough for a panel for the lid, and a collar? Things look a bit too thick...at 3/4"? We have ways.. Set up the tablesaw for resaw work... Fence was reset, as it WAS set up to resaw 1/2" thick....like these.. That's a bit better? Along with the lid parts.. 3 pc panel...almost ready to be glued up....there was ONE kickback, today.. Yep... 2 ends, and will cut the rest out of that long strip...Glue up? Already? Vise works as a 3rd hand...kind of skimpy on clamps, today...will cut to final size and for square, tomorrow... Busy day? Tablesaw thought so... Not too much at the Mitre saw...(Cordless ) Corners for the box will be through Dovetails...Bottom panel will sit in a groove, same as the lid's panel... Stay tuned..
  9. There is a Pine plank just sitting around...starting to get quite a twist to it. 1/2" x 6" x 6"......thinking I can cut it up into the 6 parts to build a box...using just hand tools? And maybe post a bunch of photos on HOW such a thing can be done? I MIGHT use the bandsaw for one task, but that would be about it.....all the rest will be by hand...and using just that one Pine plank. Not sure IF I should post it here....or..up in General Woodworking? Or both? Stay tuned...camera is charging up at the moment...
  10. Saw this at Lumber Jocks projects section. How cool is that? It's built on a golf cart frame.

  12. Sorry that I've been inactive for so long; had a lot on the plate in recent months. But now it's (long past!) time to repaint and rehabilitate the exterior of my 1930s-vintage home. I'm wanting to keep the same basic paint scheme of white with blue trim, but one thing I want to add is functional shutters (this is hurricane country, after all) at every window. And I'm wanting to use my ShopSmith for most of the work. (Actually, I NEED to use it as I don't have/can't afford a router table or similar accessories.) The biggest challenge I'm looking at is making the stiles; I have the (standard, over table) router package for the ShopSmith but I'm wanting to create some kind of jig which will simplify routing uniform slots at a consistent length and angle in two pieces of wood of varying lengths. I have several different sizes of window and also several of the windows have the old-style aluminum awnings over them. I do like these awnings and want to keep them, but I'm going to have to build shutters which "fold" in the middle to be stored opened and then unfold to protect the window when in use. Looks like it should just be a problem of building a pair of mid-rails and hinging them horizontally. I also have questions about wood selection; I'm intending to simply paint these so would softwood (pine) be a good long-term choice? Any alternatives I should consider? (I shouldn't have to say this these days, but the budget's tight!)
  13. I like working with kids. It’s not easy, i have to resist the urge to reach in and say “this is how it’s done”. Safety first of course, but after that it should be fun. Neice & nephew came for a visit, and i got the older girl out in the shop. Middle school … 12-13? She had never picked up any tool … dad isn’t the handy type … and she told her mom she didn’t think she could do it. So i locked mom out of the garage and off we went. Built a very simple bookshelf.

  15. I originally turned this years ago. It didn’t come out good and I tossed it aside. I used an old piece of pine. It was my first attempt at pre drilling and it didn’t come out well. I reworked part of it & added some bling. I kind of like it
  16. I had a nicely colored piece of Beatle Kill Pine. It had been sitting in my shop for a while. I saw a windchime on the web for 6 bucks and thought that I could combine the two. I turned the pine down and combined it with my $6 chime and came up with this. So far no wind, but it just looks good hanging there.
  17. My (step) grandson needed a bookcase for his room and asked if I was able to make one. I made one using premium pine from the mill. I still need to give it a final sanding, but for the most part is done. He and his girlfriend want to do the finish work. God knows what that will look like, but maybe they will surprise me.

    gavel display board inlay

    From the album: Old Jail Gavel

    Carpenters mark from original beam inlayed into display board
  19. Decided to at least get a plywood panel cut for it to sit on...and figure out how big the stand will be. 3/4" plywood, left outside, leaning against the house on the back patio...FREE WOOD! Needed a quick way to cut a chunk off...framing square and a black sharpie to mark a cut line...then the saw.. No problem. ( used this again, later) 6-1/2" blade seems to be still sharp. When the roofers were cutting on the sheet..they left a big tear-out....so, I trimmed back to that spot...Later, I went back to that sheet, and cut a second panel off of it. More on that, later. Worked out how to cut those 2 x 4s to the sizes I could use..needed 4 legs, 2 front braces, and 2 side braces...That was done. Did NOT like the rounded over edges..so, rip fence was set up to peel that edge off.. To make laying out half lap joints a bit easier to do. Then, the cutting began? Not quite...remember that second plywood panel? Also ripped to match the width of the Pine parts...these will be the lower braces.. Now, to get a half lap joint, I need to remove a bit of lumber... And this is the quickest way, IF you have a lot to do. Set the blade height to the halfway point...run the board through, using the fence as a stop block Then, bring it back to the bench vise.. Mallet to break as much out,as I can...then a chisel to pare it flat... This one is for the lower brace... Dry fit? 2 legs done...side notches for the side stretchers and braces...had to keep double checking, to make sure they were all on the correct sides.. Then the other 2 legs..Narrow part will be either the front or back of the stand... And the matching parts, done...I'm pooped.... Will try to assemble this mess...tomorrow...I'm done for today Assemble with glue and screws..and a big square... How messy was today? This was just from knocking all the chips free, and a bit of paring...Tablesaw? Yep, just from today...might have been a tad busy "Clean up, Aisle No. 2!" Stay tuned..
  20. Our daughter and son-in-law have just purchased their first house in Springs, NY, south of Montauk. Their street address starts with just the #5 and then the street name. I thought that I could give them a house warming present, with a carving of just the #5, and it will be painted/gilded. Here's the start of the rough carving/layout for this project. The number carving is in basswood and the second disk of wood is pine, and the use of it will be apparent later on. Again, this is just a rough carving...... finishing will take place later.

    Back view

    Back view, showing the armrests, and the slats for the back. Back rung is a store-bought 7/8" dowel. Finish is two coats of Witch's Brew ( Pumpkin Pine?). The "bench" in the background is my Saw Bench, now over 2 years old.
  22. So probably everyone who reads this knows I make lots of the Kissmas Trees from the Woodcraft magazine. I have used Poplar on all of them so far. When I drill the pockets for the kisses, sometimes the bottom of the pocket gets splintery/raised grain. This doesn’t help the painting process. I was thinking of trying Pine instead of Polar. It’s less expensive, and there really isn’t much of a bearing load . Any reasons why Pine instead of Poplar is a bad idea?
  23. I’ve been working on a hall bench my wife asked for. It’s going to be painted, so I chose to use pine I got from a local sawmill. Made a few mistakes, and did my best to hide them. Still in the building stage, but here are a couple of photos. comments and suggestions are always welcome.
  24. We had an awesome snow here. Right around 14" of the light powdery stuff. New snow blower worked flawlessly! Our Patriot Turners- @Steve Krumanaker has expanded his Lid Making business to include pieces for spice bottles. Steve shows us some of the work it takes to create these new items- Check out his post for more details- @Pauley turned a couple of spectacular bowls. The wood color and grain patterns take your breathe away! Please see his post for the images and the types of wood he used- @RustyFN was also working on a beautifully colored bowl. Rusty received lots of comments about his choice of wood and the bowl- @AndrewB is really having fun with his new pressure pot and casting resins. He continued to update us on last week's post with more images of some of his castings You can can see the updates at- Andrew used one of the castings to begin turning an egg- In Andrew's post, @Gerald gave us a link to some of his favorite color additives for resin. Here's the link to the discussion- Andrew didn't just turn acrylic resin this week. I suspect there will be some pine tar resin on his lathe after working with some wood his local tree guys gave him. See more images and his progress in this post- I hope you all are aware The Patriot Woodworker has added another sponsor- General Finishes! While we may be tempted to think of their finishes being used for woodworking, they have a woodturning finish, too! Here's a short video from General Finishes demonstrating that finish- What’s Coming Up- Although there is light at the end of the tunnel, some of "The Woodworking Shows" will still be virtual. You can get more information about the schedule and demonstrators at- https://www.thewoodworkingshows.com/?fbclid=IwAR39zWURThvLgnzTRqV9OAdVKFxNtR9qON_8bR36HupZ-GVNMR11oAjnQcU Highland Woodworking is offering an online course for photographing your work. Although it is directed toward photographing furniture, there certainly could be some worthwhile content for the turner- Click on the above image for the link to registration and more information. For The Newbies- Over the past month or so we have had a reoccurring topic about gouges and the discussion often centers around the choice between HSS and carbide. In this video, the author provides pros and cons of both types of tools. (Editor's note: The thing I have found in these comparison videos/articles is that the author(s) are often turners who have used HSS tools from the time they started turning. Many of them have decades of experience using the "traditional" tools. Then with a few hours of carbide turning, they render their often not so positive verdict. Perhaps the opinions would be different if they had the same tool time with both types of tools.) Expand Your Horizons- Maybe I should call this compress your horizons. One of the first questions, when considering casting resins, is how to get rid of the bubbles that form in the pour. Should I use a vacuum or use pressure? This video attempts to answer that question. Having had some experience with casting objects (cold cast porcelain) we found that a combination of both was the best way to go. We would vacuum each part of the components- before mixing. Carefully mix. Apply pressure. Looking for that perfect toy for the grandkids, or great grandkids? Tim Yoder has you covered- New Turning Items- Ruth Niles has a couple of new items on her website- This 3/8" three fluted spiral tap is especially suited for acrylics and very hard wood- https://nilesbottlestoppers.com/product/spiral-3-8-tap/ She also has new mandrel adapters- https://nilesbottlestoppers.com/product/mandrel-adapters/ Everything Else- Rick Turns list of YouTube turning videos from last week. If you missed the Virtual Craft Festival this past weekend, several of the presenters' videos are included in Rick's list. Safe turning and stay well
