finally think I have pictures to show of my planes from e-bay

10-29-2007 01:34 AM by Betsy | 3 comments »

Here are some pictures of the 5 1/4 I bought off of e-bay. I did clean it up a bit. Still long way to go. My camrea is not very good – had to take about 2 or 3 hundred pictures to get these 4. Really need a new cameria. :-( Hopefully you can see what I have. I also was able to get a Dunlap which is not shown here. It has a broken lever. So will be looking for a new part. By the way. These pictures are huge. I use photobucket and have had no luck figuring out how...

So you want to go pro #10: The Promoter

01-15-2008 06:22 PM by odie | 3 comments »

There has been a lot going on here, so the blog was the one thing that had to be cut back on. We are reaching the end of this topic, so if you have any questions that I might answer, I can add a couple of entries. I have to start turning some bowls to get ready for next summers shows. We touched on promoters in the last entry. Most promoters are frustrated artists that know they can put on a better show than the promoter they are currently with. I work a lot with one of these. But she came...

Shop evolution #4: Router Table #3: Putting in the plate and installing the fence...

06-11-2008 01:17 AM by ShannonRogers | 3 comments »

So I got the Mast-R-Lift in place and did some tweaking of the leveler screws to get it flush with the top. Next I needed to think about the fence. I know that I will be able to use my TS fence, but I have this Rockler fence floating around from my old drill press table. As far as I can tell, this is the same as their router table fence just a little smaller. I think it will work fine for my purposes and I can always modify it later if need be. Here I routed the channel for the T b...

My first post and my first recent project....

03-04-2009 07:27 AM by Matthew Archibald | 3 comments »

So right now I am just doing a little easy 6×6x6 box for my girlfriend. I’m using poplar and I am going to paint it and maybe felt the inside of it. She’s in college and recently joined a sorority and i thought I would cobble together a little box and paint with Tri-Sigma Greek lettering, colors and symbol. In this case I’ve chosen the sail boat over the skull and cross bones. More to come….

Garden Chair #6: The Seat – Part 1

03-19-2010 11:04 PM by Zuki | 3 comments »

Now that the seat is all set up its time to form it. I placed the old seat right over the new one as a template. I then sanded the edges with the ROS with various grits (40, 80, 120) to get it smooth. Using the original seat for measurements I marked out where the seat is to be scooped. The arrows indicate the direction of the slope. I do not have a “seat scooper” so I will be using a plunge router making numerous deepening passes and chisels to make the rough shape of th...

Fighting Dust #7: Table Saw Dust Collection Mods - Completed

01-07-2012 09:51 PM by ChunkyC | 3 comments »

The before: and the after: To recap, the whole reason behind this madness was to reduce the area between the outfeed table / workbench and the wall. That area has been the bane of my existence since the day I laid out the shop. It’s always been a dead area in the shop, lots of wasted space. So today, it’s a little less wasted space. Added a new blast gate. This is where I set up the planer so I will now have a much sorter hose to feed the planer. I’ll a...

Miter Saw / Multi Use Station #3: Tying the Cabinets together

04-18-2013 09:25 PM by izod | 3 comments »

A few weeks have passed since i initially glued up the counter tops. Now it was time to start building the base and tying the cabinets together. My dad offered to come over for a day and help with anything i needed and i couldn’t say no to that! We planed and ripped all the boards to give it a new fresh edge and dress things up a little. First we attached a cleat to each side of the cabinet and used some lag bolts for a secure hold.We initially thought about using plywood to tether ...

TS outfeed table with downdraft #3: perimeter fence detailed

05-21-2013 01:21 PM by Mainiac Matt | 3 comments »

Bill Pentz makes a strong case for the need of a perimeter fence, to constrain the “cloud” of dusty air with in the “suck zone” (my terminology) of the down draft table. So I wanted to incorporate one into my design. But since I’m using the surface primarily as an out-feed table, the fence needs to be either removable or better yet, needs to fold up out of the way. So I’ve laid out the design with the end walls hinged to the longer back wall, and the...
