Thickness Sander

1324 days ago by Bob, Oregon | 18 comments »

There were a few questions about the sander so I thought I’d answer them here. Condor1 & Blake: Yes, I simply push the stock under the drum freehand on a sled. The sled is nothing more than a piece of plywood with a sacrificial little wedge-shaped fence that is tapped into a saw kerf at the operator end. That keeps the drum from trying to spit the wood back at you. (By the way, I have found that the same safety rule for table saws applies to this bugger…stay to one si...

NEW FEATURE: Insert Images Without Sweating

1414 days ago by Martin Sojka | 70 comments »

I’ve decided to resolve the major annoyance related to posting high quality blog entries on LumberJocks. If you want to add some nice photos to your posts and don’t like spending time with 3rd party photo sharing sites like Photobucket this new feature is just for you. After taking an estimated storage and bandwidth into account and doing some math, I came to a conclusion that it’s finally the right time to create a new bucket at the Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) for...

How to use a Kerfmaker (trying to help out!) Blog.

1430 days ago by mafe | 37 comments »

How to use a KerfmakerOk, many asked me this question, and I have seen it again and again on LJ. If you need to find out how to make one, you can see my Kerfmaker 'Brass'n wood'. Another fun gadget is the tenonmarker:http://lumberjocks.com/projects/39236 I’ll try to explain, as well as I can, feel free to ask questions if I do not make myself clear (I’m only human): Collect what is needed, in this case a base stock and two thinner side stocks, and of course a Kerfmaker...

Secrets of the String Box Revealed #1: Intro and Invitation

1458 days ago by newTim | 14 comments »

This summer’s projects have been boxes. Lots and lots of boxes. Somewhere along the way I got the idea of combining the wrapping technique with a simple inlay to see how hard it would be to align the lines all around the box. In other words, at the corners. Turns out it is not that hard to do. So I’ve been experimenting. I’ve posted the first completed boxes as a Project and will post more upon completion. The photos below give an overview of this technique and the pi...

"Why is This Car Parked in My Shop?" Turning My One Car Garage Into A Shop #1: Moving the Hand Tools In...Installing A French Cleat System

1691 days ago by Brad_Nailor | 11 comments »

So, I spent all summer building a barn, so I can move all the junk out of my garage, so I can buy a real cabinet saw, jointer, band saw, and drill press and have the room to leave them all reasonably set up so I don’t have to do the Harlem Shuffle every time I want to use a tool…(whew!) And wouldn’t you know it…the wife wants to park her car in the middle of my shop. More about that later…much later! So, I bought my Unisaw and built my out feed tableSo now I need...

How to post pictures in your blogs or forums 101

1914 days ago by GaryK | 33 comments »

I have been asked by a couple of people how I add pictures into my blogs so I thought that I would make a little blog on how I do it. This is what works for me and not the only way to do it. First you have to have your pictures in your computer. You can download then from your camera or scan them with a scanner or whatever method you want. I like to resize the pictures in advance. The maximum width picture that you can display in a blog is 640. I don’t know what the limit for the ...

Tool storage design

1514 days ago by Don "Dances with Wood" Butler | 16 comments »

It’s so easy and seems to work so well at first, but tool storage shouldn’t be a “shoot from the hip” project Believe me, I’m one of the worst offenders!At first I hung tools on the walls on nails and screws.Easy, quick, yes, but as the tool inventory grew, as it must, that ceased to be useful Drawers always seemed to be a good way to store things, and I have many drawers, but what’s in them? Clutter and dust.How can a closed drawer accumulate sawdust...

There are more than a few ways to do this and unless you are building a galley style, wall to wall kitchen, you will need to think of a way to address this issue. There are more than a few ways to reach your desired destination and each way will give your finished project a look all its own. Let me begin by say...
