Baby Crib #2: Measure, cut, repeat as necessary

03-08-2010 04:11 AM by MDeSchepper | 3 comments »

All I can say is I love Spring. It’s about time the warm weather entered KC. It allowed me to get some more work accomplished with my son’s crib. He is expected to join the family in June so I still have 3 months to get this finished, but I am very motivated to finish soon. The legs have been cut out, sanded down and the edges have been rounded over with a 1/8” round over bit. I have also started cutting out the slats for what will be the foot board and the bottom...

Why did I choose the nickname Jawhorse?

03-30-2010 08:41 PM by Mark Whitsitt | 3 comments »

Well, strictly speaking, it was an accident, but I decided to keep it anyway. All of the good names are already taken, and I’m really no good at generating clever and creative nicknames. So, I was looking at a couple of pictures to upload to a Project page, and I saw my new Jawhorse in one of the pics. I wondered if that name was taken, and obviously, it wasn’t. So, not the optimal name, but fitting and one I can get used to. Here is my new Jawhorse used as a miter saw stan...

Table Saw Rebuild #4: Adding A Mobile Base to the TS.

04-24-2011 06:05 PM by Hersh | 3 comments »

Well here I go again adding additional improvements to the TS. Since I want the ability to move tools around the shop as needed I needed to add a mobile base. I came accross this design in “Shop Notes, Vol. 20, Issue 115. I like the way it works. It is easy to use and rolls around very nicely. At this point it has only one draw back. Until solve the sawdust collection promblem the sawdust falls directly down to the large plywood wings. Keep that in mind as you look at these pictu...

My Toys #3: Millers Falls "Langdon Acme" Mitre Box

07-27-2012 06:42 PM by GMatheson | 3 comments »

This one doesn’t have a long story. I saw an add on Kijiji for a miter box, paid the man his $25 and took it home. I haven’t had time to do any restoration to it yet but the man who owned it took good care of it. Everything is square and the 29”x4” saw is nice and sharp so I can just use it as is until I find the time to clean it up.
