Shoulder vise addition to benchI decided to add a Scandinavian shoulder vise to my existing bench. Used the Lee Valley hardware.
I did not use a dovetail on the corner, but opted for a mortise & tenon pinned with dowels.

Air compressor cart

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Air compressor cartSo I finally upgraded my table saw. I was tired of never being able to get a square cut so I tossed my garbage saw and bought a Delta 36-725t2. So far it is meeting my expectations. I plan on making a new workbench so I have thrown together this little cart so I can work more efficiently. It is made of whatever scraps i had leftover and a couple of wheels to make it mobile. I will house this cart in my workbench, once it has been made. Many projects are coming.

Walnut Clairseach (Irish Harp)

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Walnut Clairseach (Irish Harp)Walnut Irish Harp (clairseach) with brass hardware and strings. I did carving here based mostly on the motifs in Peter Follansbee's book “Joiner's work” (I included some closeups of the motifs before the harp was finished). The range is 32 strings from C2-E6 (with two tenor g strings which is a feature of the clairseach) the overall length is 39”, the height on its back is about 25”, and it is 14” wide at its widest point.I just put the strings on it so it will take some time to tune up, but once it does I will post a sound sample.I was also going to post some build details here but realized I have over 100 process pictures so I think I might have to post a separate blog entry which i will post a link to when I am done. Thank you!
