Band saw Fence

01-18-2010 05:15 AM by deeman | 3 comments »

Today I put on my new Kreg band saw fence. It bolted up to the table with no problems. It works great. I also bought the resaw guide, but didn’t have a chance to use it. I did put it on the fence. I also made a quick clamp rack for the new clamps my son bought. They were annoying me on the bench where he left them. I really like the Kreg fence it is very well made.

Lie-Nielsen Shoulder/Rabbet Plane Kit #2: Day Two

01-01-2011 03:20 AM by cut3times | 3 comments »

Today I started shaping the plane using my Ridgid oscillating edge belt/spindle sander.Next I started working on the mouth. You need to keep it 90 degrees square to the frog infill. The blade needs to lie flat on the frog and protrude through the mouth just enough as to get the size shavings you desire. That means not making the mouth too wide.I created a metal guide to allow me to cut a square line to start the mouth opening. This part of the plane making is going very slow. I found out it i...

General 75-500 M1 22" Drill Press

My old drill press crashed today. I am looking at the General 75-500 M1 to replace it. Can anybody give me some feedback on this machine? I need at least an 18”. I’m getting a little nervious about the Delta and Powermatic after reading some of the reviews.

Humidor build #1: Building my first humidor #2

06-29-2016 06:46 PM by Drew Gregory | 3 comments »

A little progress update here. I lined the box with spanish cedar, starting with the bottom then the walls and finally the lid. I’m quite happy with how it turned out all pieces are a tight fit and held in place with a couple dots of epoxy. After getting the box lined I fine tuned the fit using my no.5 1/2 which worked really well, better than expected. Time to get the lid attached, thanks to some excellent advice: Well, she s looking good so far! A couple of tips in de...

Taliesin Desk Build - How's and Why's #4: Time to make some sawdust

07-27-2016 01:30 AM by EarlS | 3 comments »

I don’t have any 8/4 or 12/4 to make the legs and side aprons. Online 12/4 X36 square blanks are very expensive ($40 on Rockler) plus most of them are glued up. So I decided to make them from existing 6/4 and 4/4 stock. When the changes were made, I needed roughly 20 BF of 4/4 and 20 BF of 6/4 cherry for the legs, side aprons, various stretchers, as well as the drawer fronts and the back rail. I also needed some 5/4 square walnut spindles and some 4/4 square walnut spindles. The 4/...

New shop! #2: February 2016. Shell done, Step 1, lighting

08-18-2016 10:56 PM by Steve Felsheim | 3 comments »

I had the builder sheet the ceiling with steel, install the hanging heater and insulate the ceiling. So, it was a basic shell (one plugin, one light bulb) when I got the keys. I did opt to upgrade to 200 amp electric service. First step, light. The one bulb is not going to cut it. I decided on standard T5 bulbs. A lot of them :-) One thing I can’t stand is not being able to see. My goal was to make sure anywhere I was in the shop, I did not cast a shadow on the very thin...

Workshop 2016 #6: Breathing easier

08-23-2016 03:58 AM by Ty Sullivan | 3 comments »

Pretty quickly a hobby woodworker realizes how uncomfortable it is to come back into your home with a nose full of sawdust never mind how that same dust permeates every inch of your workspace. It coats every inch with a fine mist and means more cleanup later which just add to the annoyance. I don’t currently have a dust collection system and I don’t even mind the heavy sawdust that falls immediately to the floor but I couldn’t stand the small stuff filling my sinuses as it h...
