How to repair bandsaw blades

1045 days ago by TomFran | 12 comments »

Recently, I was doing some resawing with my bandsaw when the blade broke. It was a brand new blade that had hardly been used. It broke right where it had been “butt” welded at the factory. I had forgotten how to repair a bandsaw blade since it’s been so long since I’ve done it. I found this link which gives very detailed information on how to do it, and I wanted to share it with all who can use it. You can find this information, along with a downloadable PDF file of...

LJ Interviews #39: Grumpy

371 days ago by MsDebbieP | 4 comments »

This interview with Grumpy is from the July, 2013 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag. Both Grumpy and I thought that we had done this before but we couldn’t find it anywhere … so here we go (again?)   1. How did you first get started working with wood? My father was a builder and was away a lot when I was young. He had a big shed with lots of tools in it so as a boy I had access to lots of woodworking gear. Didn’t know what most of them did at that stage but had...

Wood Lathe Router Guide #1: Wood Lathe Router Guide

679 days ago by Jim Jakosh | 15 comments »

I’ll take you through the steps I used to build my router guide for my wood lathe. It is essentially a box with adjustable sides and top which has a slot to guide the router bushing. It is made from 5/8” plywood, clear Lexan, Steel and aluminum.I started with a 11.5×11.5 bottom and cut rabbets on both sides on the table saw and made a cut out for the tail stock. The sides were glued in place held square by a couple scrap blocks. They had T nuts installed for the adjustment ...

Hand tool cabinet #5: Applying the oil/poly mix

870 days ago by Tim Dahn | 6 comments »

One third each of Boiled linseed oil, poly-urethane and low odor mineral spirits has become my favorite finish. Here is a great site with a lot of good info Homeshop Finishes That Work. Scroll down to: Finish #4: Sam Maloof’s Finish. I normally use a brush to apply the first coat, put it on heavy, continue applying to keep it wet for 10 – 15 min. so it can soak in. Wipe off with paper towels, I usually go over the entire project with the same paper towel to help r...

Making a Hinged Obelisk #1: Making a natural wood hinged obelisk

940 days ago by Jim Jakosh | 10 comments »

The following pictures show how I made the hinged obelisk. I started with a plan for a shelf size where the obelisk was to be cut in half so it would be big enough for the 1 1/4” hole for the candle and the two brass pins. It was supposed to be 2” square which meant about a 4×4x8 block. the wood was so chewed up by ants that the biggest block I could get was 3 5/8” square x 8”. I laid out the cut lines and that left a shelf size of 1 7/8” square which was...

THE PLAN OF "THE VASE"

1008 days ago by Sam Shakouri | 7 comments »

I re-draw this plan today to send it as blog to anyone who may accept to have a go. It is a complicated laminated project but the result is rewarding. The Vase was the first of few of this kind which I call ” 8 ring vases or bowls. You can see them in my project pages as Closed Eight Link Chain Bowl, page 2 and The Twin, page 4. You may notice slight differences. In the first one, the rings were sitting on the top of each other. In the following vases the rings are inside each othe...

How I made my Intersected cutting board

1251 days ago by GaryK | 31 comments »

Here is how I made my Intersected cutting board posted here. There seems to be a lot of interest in this board so here is a blog on how I made it. First of all here’s what I planned on making. It’s the top one. After I got both the circles intersected I liked how it looked with the rounded corners so I just added in the “wedge shapes”at the top and bottom and called it done. I think that it makes it very distinctive also. As one person guessed I ...
