Delta 22-560 Thickness Planer: Repair/Fine Tune - 0 replies

I recently acquired my first thickness planer from a craigslist ad- a Delta 22-560 in “ok” condition. For $150 it was just what I was looking for. Seller was up front about the fact that the planer had fallen once years ago, and bent the infeed table. upon further inspection it was bent away from the stock (i.e. down) and so I tho...

Truly Sliding Sliding Dovetails - 10 replies

So I am doing some prototyping for christmas gifts this year. The plan is to have a wall mounted bottle opener with a cap-catch. Ultimately there will be beveled edges and routed profiles on nice finished hardwood and all that stuff, but for now I am playing around with pine and plywood to get the design just so before I start producing them. ...

1 1/8" Groove Cut Jig- Need advice - 10 replies

I am working on a new router table top made out of 3/4 phenolic faced ply, which is going to be so much nicer than my current plywood tabletop. I’m also adding in t-track and, pertinent to this post, a mitre channel. For the mitre channel I need a 1 1/8” wide groove. Lucky for me I just purchased a new dado set (my first!) and fig...

Router table redesign: need help with dust collection - 4 replies

So I’ve had this bench top shop made router table for a couple months now, and I really do like it. The problem I’ve run into is that now I am getting more diligent about dust collection, using the dust deputy (which I love). The dust port on the back of the fence works well only if I am doing a through cut and don’t totall...

Material Recommendations for workshop cabinet countertops - 10 replies

Hey! So I purchased some used kitchen cabinets to add into my garage workshop, which has already been a great boon for my organization/sanity. They aren’t intended to be my primary workspace for woodworking- I have an assembly table and a workbench, but they will be used for storage, tinkering, setting glue ups, etc. I’m also plannin...

Planers, jointers, sanders... oh my! - 15 replies

Hey everyone! So I recently came into some money for my birthday and I have acquired some new and desperately needed tools for my garage shop, like a drill press, block plane, etc. What I’m finding now is that I’ve gotten into some more projects where I find myself needing to adjust the thickness of my stock, say down to 1/4 or 3/8 f...

Coffee table build: corner/center bracing - 3 replies

So I’m partway into this coffee table and looking for a little structural advice. The aprons connect to the leg with mortise and tenons (but haven’t been glued yet). The first question is if I need some corner bracing like a piece cut at a 45 in each corner (and if so how to connect that to the aprons). The second question is about a...

Case of the Mystery Hand Plane - 8 replies

Trying to figure out what I’ve got on my hands here. I got this from my dads garage where it has been buried for years untold. Notably it is stamped “made in usa”, and features a “4 way blade” (square blade sharpened on all sides- presumably to rotate?). Is this just a piece of knock off junk that happens to be twen...

Clamping Coffee Table Trim - 6 replies

Hello! This is my first post on lumberjocks and I’m excited to be a new member. I’m an amateur woodworker with a garage shop in Bowie MD, so some of my parlance may not be quite as sophisticated or precise, and I hope you can forgive that! I am building a hardwood coffee table for a friend, and have a clamping question. The table ...
