Grizzly G1022 Z Table Saw Price?

06-20-2014 03:40 AM by twade | 3 comments »

Hey folks, new to the site, thought I’d reach out for some advice. I’m new to woodworking and looking to purchase my first saw. I’ve done a bit of research and would like to purchase one w/out breaking the bank. I’ve found a Grizzly TS G1022Z. Looks to be in good shape, no rust etc. I am concerned as the cord “has gotten hot and melted” which was covered by electrical tape. I’ll get some clarification… It’s listed for $400 which...

Two Mandolins #3: Mando and Archtop

11-26-2014 06:21 PM by Texcaster | 3 comments »

An update. Sawdust bed. Jorge loves his blue chalk. In this case it is mainly to get into the brad points, they become very hard to see. The outside is given a piss coat of shellac to show the cross grain sanding. Sanded to 180 and sealed for now. Power plane to rough shape, top and bottom. The rebate is cut at 6mm and is a guide. 5mm is final thickness, recurve is 3mm. Instead of a mando, I’ve decided to finish building an ar...

Jigs and Fixtures #1: Dovetail Miter Splines

07-27-2007 07:03 PM by scopemonkey | 3 comments »

The first part in doing this, like most miter splines, is making a way to support the work to pass the corner of the miter over the cutter. In this case, I made a sled that goes over the dovetail bit and cradles the box in a V groove. I glued up 3 pieces of 3/4 plywood into one laminated sheet, then cut it square to the dimensions I needed. Then, I ripped it in half with the blade tilted to 45 degrees. Take one of the resulting halves and flip it over and butt the sawn edges together to c...

Bunk Beds for the Boys #11: Construction is done.... Now for the sanding....

04-07-2008 05:14 AM by RobH | 3 comments »

Hey all, Well, I finally got the ladder done on the bunk beds at the first of the weekend. Then, it was time to sand. Now, I am probably like most of you and really do not like the sanding part. However, it is a job that must be done. Since I have just started, I am just now realizing how much sanding there is on this job. It will take me the better part of this week and probably some of next week to get it all done. But, I will get it done. Like a friend of mine likes to point out,...

Building a new workbench #5: Half-lapping the side rails

02-12-2009 09:44 PM by Loogie | 3 comments »

Last night I got to put in a few hours on the bench project. I’ve been working on half-lapping the side rails. First marked out the dovetails then I cut them on the band saw. The upper stretcher is a full half-lapped dovetail and the bottom rails has a half-lapped dovetail only on the bottom side. The top side gets a wedge pin to complete the dovetail. After I had the dovetails cut I cut the shoulders with a hand saw then I headed over to the table saw where I used my dado head t...

The Craftsman's Path #58: Sculpted Rocking Chair - Laminating the Rockers and Back Braces

03-04-2009 12:15 AM by Mark Mazzo | 3 comments »

Moving on from the work of roughing out components, it was time for some laminations. After making the forms I went to work with lots of thin strips in hand to create the rockers and back braces for the chair. The glue-filled process is covered in the latest post on my blog. Thanks for reading!

Hi All, Just thought that I would post an update. My shop is finally clean (as much as it could be). So, I have started working on a few things for the LumberJock Michigan picnic. I have decided to do something to commemorate the event. More to come later… God I am starting to sound like MsDebbie. Lord help us all. :-)

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #60: What To Do Next?

08-02-2010 12:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

You know you are getting older when you have to recoup from the weekend. Not because you were doing any wild partying or anything like that. Just because you were active and busy and there didn’t seem to be a moment to spare. What fun though! Yesterday was another great day. I spent the morning and early afternoon catching up on housework and preparing the food I was bringing to the cookout. I finished the majority of what I wanted to do before we left. We had a really nice visi...

Wow. Received quite a few welcome messages over the past few days. Just wanted to say Thank you for the welcome, and I hope to have a few useful items to add in the future. Most of my work for the past 1 1/2 years has been remodeling our house. I’m currently building new kitchen cabnets and learning a few new skills in the process, most recently rail and style doors. I’ll try and post a few pictures in the coming days of some of my mistake free projects.

Building Falling Waters Lamps #5: I want to be poplar...

05-08-2011 07:40 PM by HerbC | 3 comments »

Or was that popular? The base elements of this lamp design are made from various thickness pieces of poplar, painted black. I didn’t have any poplar so I went to Home Depot and bought a board (3/4” x5 1/2” x 8’). I decided to resaw the poplar rather than buy the different thicknesses at the Home Depot. Again I used my table saw and the resaw fence I built. Here’s a picture of the stock ready for planing to final thickness. From left to right, n...
