Finally got a lathe and bandsaw

06-25-2011 04:43 AM by SSMDad | 3 comments »

After getting over my “must have every tool craze” (and I was lucky in that I could return all the stuff I didn’t need), 2 days ago I got a little RIKON lathe from Woodcraft that seems really nice (though I’m waiting on the chisels to come in) and today after first talking to the guy on Wednesday, I was able to get a perfectly working and little used Craftsman 12” Bandsaw for $75. It’s exactly what I needed to finish things and now I can use it to rough sha...

07-11-2012 03:04 AM by therookie | 3 comments »

Well doing my search on Craigslist and I found a 14” tablesaw for sale. Will post pics tomorrow if I get it un loaded.

And here comes the best part Wait for it Wait for it I got the saw for $400 bucks a really good deal in my opinion because I and g...

Various shenanigans #2: parallellawhat?

07-30-2013 04:19 AM by JeremyPringle | 3 comments »

My journey into small quick random projects continues. I am determined to make a few little boxes with Louis cube patterns on the lid, so I started making lots of maple, cherry and walnut parallelograms. I made myself a little jig when I made the box for my wife last Christmas, so this time I only have to cut the veneer. My shop is in my basement, the main shop is in a space about 250 sq feet, there are some walls that separate that space with the other rooms in the basement, but those r...

Southwest end tables #2: I am soooo done planning.

08-31-2013 01:44 AM by MarkTheFiddler | 3 comments »

Yup – I couldn’t wait. I took that little bit of purple heart and Peruvian walnut and chopped it into little tiny pieces. The center is glued. I was dry fitting the outside border. Thought I would snap a work in progress picture. I didn’t get to do much lumber-jocking this week but I did repair the dryer, sliding glass door tack and van. I’ll take my little bit of progress and be thankful. I think I’ll be able to do a little good this weekend but my woo...

Workshop Development #98: Improvising air hose retaining clamps.

04-08-2014 03:55 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

Okay so my schedule hasn’t allowed me to run to Home Depot to buy any clamps, and my spools of plastic plumbers strap appear to be playing hide and seek with me, and winning… And that danging hose just bugs the tar out of me… But what to do? Improvise! I stumbled upon an old, HUGE nylon zip tie, probably 3/8” wide by 30 or so inches long. I think it may have been from the compressor pallet. Anyway the thought occoured to me that the plastic used here was the same...

Building a Classical Guitar #2: The neck and headstock

09-07-2008 03:25 AM by kem | 3 comments »

The first step in making the neck blank is to make a scarf joint. This creates the tilt back headstock. I laid out and cut a 15 degree cut on the neck stock with the bandsaw. After cleaning up both sides of the scarf joint with a jack plane, I glued the joint together. You can see the short piece from the cut is flipped over and glued to the back side of the neck stock to create the angled headstock. The long piece should overhang the shorter piece a little bit. I made a little ...

My first blog

12-22-2009 06:27 AM by deeman | 3 comments »

I am new to this so bare with me. When I first discovered all the information about woodworking on the internet I was really overwhelmed. When I saw everyones shops with Powermatic and Delta tools I felt like I had a substandard shop. I have mostly tools from yard sales and flea markets. In 1986 I bought a new Shopsmith Mark V 500. Which I love and still have. I also have another one that I have rebuilt. Everyone on Lumber Jocks has made me feel so welcome. I have posted 3 projects and all th...

Cedar Chests Project

02-17-2010 05:52 PM by HenryH | 3 comments »

Cedar Chests My latest project is the construction of two solid Cedar blanket chests. The inspiration for this project came from a traditional source, my wife. After another summer of moths eating tiny holes in her winter sweaters she made the suggestion that it would be good to have a Cedar Chest to store her sweaters. I was not enthusiastic because I have built other chest and I was thinking of building something new. But, just a couple of days later a colleague at work approached me about ...
