|Thread: Radiator cover|
I love it, very creative!
|Thread: Time for a Sketch!|
I based this sketch on the avatar I use for my woodworking blog: http://woodworking.david-moody.info On instagram: https://instagram.com/p/BOMmC0jDlW8/
|Thread: Watch the birdy|
|Thread: Antikythera Mechanism!?!|
Hello Dave, from another Dave! I am familiar with this device, one of my interests is ancient history, especially regarding technological development. What you are creating here is incredible. Considering you've only got x-ray scans and so forth of the original to work with (as far as I know!) I am thoroughly looking forward to seeing the machine working when it is finished!
|Thread: Guitar repair...|
Wow, thanks. My wife has broken her guitar in a similar way and I've been wanting to fix it, but never been sure how. Thanks for the tips!
|Thread: A new desk, an Advent Calendar, and a garden fence!|
Thanks, yes, it certainly has been fun! No, I haven't finished the lathe, I've had to set it aside for the moment to sort out my desk problem, as you've seen, and to get ready for Christmas. However, I will be enjoying a 3 week break shortly for Christmas, and I intend to enjoy it! I have one more Christmas project I want to build for my wife, and then I'll be back onto the lathe.
I'm not got to fill the forum with separate threads when only one will do!
|Thread: Small Vase|
Wow, that's beautiful. You should advertise this in Australia, there are many Aussie I believe, like me, who would like to bring out one of these on ANZAC Day. Would you consider making more?
|Thread: Woodworking Follies - Ep1 - The Case of the Broken Tab!|
I created this video for this weeks activity for the course I am studying at university. It's been on my bucket list for years to make a silent film, and this activity gave me good opportunity!
|Thread: Double Spring Pole Lathe [Part 3]|
I can't wait to find out too!
My lathe project is moving along nicely
|Thread: GW v TW|
I't s a touch choice, I'm tempted to subscribe to both, I already get G.W., and an Aussie magazine.
|Thread: yew pedistal bowl.|
Very beautiful, well done.
|Thread: Burr bowl|
|Thread: Confessions of a jobbing joiner|
Hello Martin, it is complex for sure, structurally it comes across as a bit of patchworking, but on the other hand it does make best use of available space, and the exterior quandrant does have a decorative element to it. I guess in the end it is something that you work out to best suit your needs and the situation at hand.
|Thread: Driftwood find|
Agreed, it's all out in the open at the moment. All I've done is hose it off, gonna have to give it a proper clean later. some pieces are full of big heavy nails, thoroughly rusted into the wood, so may make it difficult to work with, but will certainly be an enjoyable challenge!
Hoping to make a sidetable for our front door with some of this. Any other ideas?
|Thread: Confessions of a jobbing joiner|
Hello Martin, if you look at the detail shots of the shelving you will notice that they have runners around the bottom edges where they hit the back and sides. I cannot say for sure, but it would be my guess that these runners would also serve as internal 'strengtheners' for the side extensions that concern you. Notice mainly though the picture in Step 7, there appears to be a hefty length of quadrant running down the sides from top to bottom, this quadrant if securely screwed in both directions would I imagine provide considerable support for the extensions. There also appears to be internal skirting around the bottom. I think all these factors combine to provide the necessary support. I hope this answers your question.
|Thread: Table Saw Blade Question|
Derek, that is a very good point about the riving knife and blade guard.
Neil. If the table top is as bad as you say is there any possibility of taking it to a local engineering company and having them cut a piece of flat steal plate to replace the top. If you can do that then your new top can replace the original, and who knows, it may even be thinner than the original (I'm assuming that it is made of cast alloy or suchlike).
