#Restoration is over! Meet my #lathe. I didn't try to match original colours, I just made it look pretty. Metallic graphite and silver with orange details should work. Please check my latest posts for the "before" look. I think I did a decent job here.

As I mentioned in my previous post I went shopping in Craiglist Mall. I bought a lathe and got this hand #planer as a bonus. All parts are original and except for some grime and rust, in good shape.

My lucky Craiglist find! I got this Craftsman #lathe with 16 #chisels for $120. I also got complimentary hand planer. It's all in working condition just need some cleaning and TLC. Does anyone out there has such lathe from 1973-75?
Stay tuned for #restoration photos.

TOWER SPEAKERS project part 3
Nearly final look. Front made with cherry wood veneer stained in "cognac" and finished with satin poly. Backs sprayed black. Sides will receive black vinyl for better look and reinforcement. It was very enjoyable project. I love to combine my hobby from teenage years with current one: #electronics and #woodworking.

TOWER SPEAKERS project part 2
Today photos from enclosure building. The best (among affordable ones) material for speakers' boxes is MDF. I used a full sheet of 3/4" thick one. I enforced joints with biscuits. They also help align and glue up everything. Since MDF is not the most beautiful material out there, I covered fronts with cherry wood veneer. Openings for speakers were cut with @milescraft2002 jig and a router. It was the best way to make perfectly round and clean holes repeatedly.

TOWER SPEAKERS project part 1
You might remember the amplifier I have built. What's the use of it without speakers, right? So here it is, a new #project. Today I am showing the progress on building a #crossover. I used 1/4" plywood as a base for those 5 parts needed for my 2-way speakers. All parts for crossover and speakers are from #dayton. You can buy them at @parts_express

Just got those two bad boys for $35 each. It must have been old stock because HD has those 7" deep clamps for over 50. It's a lot of steel. Those #clamps are very heavy. Just for the size comparison I added to the picture my smallest clamp.

I am new to #bandsaw but even I am guessing something here went wrong. Anyone has any idea why the blade bent so badly and the saw jammed as soon as I started to feed this piece of #maple to it?

#spacesaver - I realised my drawer is way too deep for those few measuring devices I store in it, so I've built a tray for them and underneath I keep things I rarely need an access too. Not a bad idea, right? I thought I'd share.

This $6 AC motor controller turned my also inexpensive #bench grinder into very useful machine. Now I can sharpen my chisels without burning them. There was enough space in the rinder base to put the controller into. The only small problem is that potentiometer knob has to be at the back. 
Happy #Halloween everybody!

It's raining today so not much can be done in my patio #workshop. At least I made this little block to organise all my metric drill bits. I should have done it long time ago.

So finally I have done something that no woodworker in the history of a mankind ever did before - my logo ladies and gentlemen. Made 100% out of recycled materials aka #poplar #pallets. This is about 60 cm or 2 ft in diameter. I used scroll saw and @milescraft2002 PantographPRO.

What are your favourite 4-way clamps? Do you use those often?

I recently got these from Woodcraft. I like them because: 1. Price was right - $32.50, 2. I got 10% birthday discount, 3. They are a product and a project - 2 in 1. One needs to cut 2x2s from some wood for that hardware to actually clamp anything. I got two of those for 4ft and 2ft long clamps, which I made of #bamboo. I am pretty happy with how they help flatten the boards to make a single panel.

This small desk made of pine was my first and so far the only project with a resin. It's a bit nerve wracking experience but I rather like the final results.
Slanted tapered legs that was also the first time for me. I think I've chosen slightly to big angle. Next time will be better.

Here are the results of my adventure with a #pantographpro from @milescraft2002. I made a gift for my best friend. Now you all know how he name his kids. My full review will be soon available on Milescraft website and Amazon. Let me just say here it does take some practicing to get it work but results are very nice.

What wood would you use for the jaws and why?

DEAL ALERT! Look what I found at Woodcraft today $25 off! This is lots of steel for $54. Medium size bench vise for #woodworkersofinstagram. Very useful in every #workshop. Lots of fun too as it is also a project. One would have to make handle and jaws for this vise and mount it on the bench. Screws not included.
