General 260 Lathe, Accessories and Woodturning Chisels - 2 replies

I’ve been put in charge of selling some of the tools of a woodturner. He’s moved his shop into a smaller space and needed to get rid of the big lathe and a few tools that aren’t needed anymore. I’m still in the process of putting together all the information but figured I may as well get the basic info posted here. I...

Looking for Air-Dried Cherry in South Chicagoland (8/4 min thickness) - 14 replies

I’ll soon be working on a set of sculptures carved from glued up blocks of wood (think Wendell Castle). Projects of this nature are always easier with air-dried wood so I’d like to buy some in 8/4 or thicker boards if possible. I’m still working out the cutlist so exact quantity is unknown but roughly 30-40 board feet would...

Craigslist Sale on Graco Falcon Pump and G15 Gun - 0 replies

I was at a sale for a cabinet shop in Frankfort, Illinois and picked up a Graco airless, air-assisted setup for $600. There’s one left if anyone else wants to get it. For those who aren’t familiar with that type of spray gun, they’re designed for production spraying. The pumps pull finish out of a bucket or container inste...

Moving a Slider Table Saw - 31 replies

Today I was fortunate enough to snag an Altendorf F90 located a mere 60 miles from the shop for about $1,500. Now the fun part of moving the beast has to happen. My business partner and myself are capable of loading and unloading 600 pound objects but I suspect the saw is well over that and it’s going to be cumbersome due to size as we...

Cutting Edge Cutting Boards - 1 reply

Lots of woodworkers participating on this site make cutting boards for gifts or sale. Here’s a source of inspiration that others may find enjoyable. MTM Wood Cutting Board Products I’ve never made a single cutting board since there’s way too much competition in the field for my liking but it’s apparent that there&#...

For Want of a TRIAC, a Router is Running: Diagnostics and CNC Repair - 10 replies

This topic might have fit better in the blog section but I thought the CNC people would probably fail to see it and they are the folks who’d be interested in reading this. I’m not the only one around here using a shop-built CNC router and sooner or later, everyone will encounter the situation none of us wants to face: malfunctions...

Setting up a Laser File Like a Pro (Or a Ninnyhammer, Perhaps?) - 12 replies

A two-week gap between projects has given me badly-needed time to update the website and the current project involves making a basic tutorial for creating laser engraving files. I was just wondering if it makes sense to other people or not. For reasons unknown, I always understand my own writing perfectly whereas others may not. If anyone w...

The $100 Vacuum Table - 11 replies

No pictures yet but today I’d gone to the shop planning to mill panels for a kitchen out of 8 sheets of pre-finished ply. While programming the parts, I started thinking about how to clamp the stuff down and feeling too lazy to bother with complex solutions, decided to build a vacuum table instead of working on the kitchen. I’ll ...

Veneer Tech 2014 - Anyone Here Enter This Year? - 5 replies

I’m just curious if anyone here decided to try their hand at the annual veneer tech competition. The ad was in Woodshop News a couple months ago so I figured, why not? I’ve put in an entry and also convinced my former employer to enter that organ facade project I recently posted on this site. Just so no one is confused, the Vene...

I’ve seen people searching for good designs to purchase in various places and I’ve just started wondering how much interest exists out there if I were to start creating and publishing sets of plans on my website.

CNC and Custom Furniture - Applications and Techniques - 9 replies

I was recently asked how we utilize the CNC in our furniture shop and what software strategies are used for some of the more unusual applications (non-panel work). Rather than reply directly to the questioner by email I chose to create a post here so others can enjoy the information. Of course we do process sheet goods frequently. For cabin...
