Taliesin Desk in Cherry #3: Legs and Grill Work

10-21-2015 02:43 AM by JimYoung | 3 comments »

We’ll it’s been a while since I updated my desk build blog. I had 40 mortises to square up on the legs, so I’ve taken the “15 minute” approach to this build. Whenever I had a little spare time I would knock out another mortise. With all of the mortises done, it was on to the tenons. I bought a Rockler heavy duty tenon jigs a while back, and tried it once with mixed results. Prior to that I have been using a home made jig for my router that holds pieces flat...

Workshop Enhancements #3: Added the Rigid 4512 Contractor Saw to the shop

11-05-2015 05:19 PM by edwood1975 | 3 comments »

Although this isn’t a review I’ll do one in a few months after I do a lot of projects on it It was a project in assembling it So far the assembly was quite long mainly because all the little adjustment needed to true it up and square it off… Let start off by saying it’s truly a remarkable saw. For all the “nay Sayers ” I was almost not going to get this saw and right now I’m glad I didn’t listen …. It’s not a cabinet saw ...

Dunlap Sander Restore #1: My new belt/disc sander

06-10-2008 03:31 AM by marcb | 3 comments »

I was at a garage sale last week when I spotted this hiding in a corner: Brought it home for 10 bucks, that included the spare 1/3 HP motor the guy threw in. I’ve managed to ID this using the Old Wood Working Machines website, its a Dunlap that was produced in the early 40’s. Everything workes, missing the little miter gauge. I’ve gotten it tore down and in the electrolysis dunk tank getting the paint and grime and rust off it. Original Motor, seized but I think I...

Tablesaw Mobile Station #3: Stupid plywood!

11-14-2015 10:35 PM by Vernn | 3 comments »

Got a little further in the project today…had some frustrations due to plywood not be good and flat, and that was the cream of the crop. Nothing that wasn’t able to be overcome but just took way longer than it should have. I was working on the area under where the table is going to be and was contemplating on how to go about sloping the area down to assist with dust and chip collection. I was agonizing on doing it with wood and how I was going to cut some crazy angle as well as...

Cedar Train Table #1: Praticing Dovetails

10-25-2009 01:59 AM by Bahremu | 3 comments »

Last year i built a simple train table for my children. It’s functional and they love it. This year my youngest son’s pre-school is soliciting donations for their annual fundraising auction. I will donate a newly made train table. This time more nicely built one. As lots of lumberjocks have built a train table for their children and/or grandchildren, we all know it’s a flat top with an apron that provides a small lip. I’ve decided that this project will be wher...
