The past couple of afternoons I put in a 220 plug for the soon to be obtained Sawstop. I also put in a dust collection pipe and duct for the saw. All my other tools are connected to a collector but my table saw never was as it was across the room. The base was enclosed with a door for clean-out. Since the Sawstop has a port beneath it I ran new piping today..Here’s a section of it installed. Notice the hangers I made..My hangers are made by cutting a trough down the center of a section ...
View on YouTube I did a video last week about ripping wood that has tension in it. I said that my preferred way to handle it is to walk away from the table saw and use a band saw. WELL! I got a LOT of feedback and suggestions about other ways to deal with that. So, I decided that I would actually test a few of these methods. Since I made this video I got an additional suggestion and that is to use a dado blade, but I haven’t tested that one. You guys schooled me pretty goo...
I have burned about 25% of the lines which has taken me about 4 hours. Only a few more lines to burn.
Hi, this is my first attempt at writing blog. Be kind. Here is a selection of tools that require only broken hacksaw blades, a nail, and some scraps of wood. This tool is to enable you to easily chop out a lap dove tail. the one in the picture hasn’t been sharpened yet as I may want to send it by post as a present the mouse is the equivalent of a half pencil for scribing over voids. Not to be confused with the little block used for thrading sash cord that...
Greetings one and all! Just discovered this site. Seems just the sort of place I have been searching for, for what seems forever. Great project ideas, great forum and lots of knowledgeable woodworkers keen to share their experiences. I am an electronics engineer by day and in my spare time a keen woodworker, DIY enthusiast and electronics tinkerer. I am looking to get more into the woodworking side as I gain skills and read what can be done in a limited workshop. Already seen a few project...
We finally get the old girl all cleaned up and rockin’ View on YouTube
A quick update, this time around…. The Boss wanted to go over to Menards, and price a few items ( Honey-do sort of things..) While there I picked a couple 1×6 x 6’ Pine boards…...same price as a 12 footer, just a lot easier to carry in the van….took awhile to get a couple decent, but cheap boards….about half what they wanted for Clear Pine…..I can deal with knots… Letting them sit, leaning against the bandsaw…...the one in front was...
Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #8: Bagging the Leaves and a Design Change
Time to start vacuum pressing the boards. I start with the leaves on the theory that if something does not come out quite right, the mistake will be hidden away most of the year. I spread out all of the veneers to arrange and number them in the preferred sequence on the ping pong table, which makes a convenient work surface for sorting and arranging. For this table I like the look of a slip match arrangement over book match. My original design has three 20” wide leaves. On...
After a bit of a pause I finally was able to get back to this build… It feels really good!Watch the video… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNJfder-emQ
Needed something better than a TV Tray as a bedside table. Off to Lowes for a few things.. A 1×8 x 8’ was needed to build a topA 1×4 x 8’ was needed for aprons and other small parts ( Drawer, maybe?)anda 2×4 x 8’ was needed for leg blanks Grand total? $20.16…....Cheap table? Small circular to crosscut the 1×8 into three 27” long blanks…..Jointed the edges.. With a Stanley #6c small jointer plane. Laid the three down...
