I have added quiet a few saws to my collection over the years. Been trying to snag a saw vise off eBay for some time. Found me one while roaming through an antique mall this afternoon.

Workbench Build #10: More on the vise end cap

11-25-2014 06:00 AM by Mark Kornell | 3 comments »

Trimming the tenon cheeks and shoulders was fairly straightforward. The hardest part was flipping the 200 lb slab every 5 minutes… There were two issues. First, the tenon shoulders weren’t coplanar. In fact, they formed a kind of X. I doubt my collar jig was that bad, so I’m inclined to think there was a lot of flex in the circ saw, and probably exacerbated by the blade burning issue. The second issue is that the tenon depth was uneven. That’s a layout problem. ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1462: A Perfect World - Panel 15

12-18-2014 01:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I actually finished panel fifteen of my "A Perfect World" embroidery project a couple of weeks ago. Needless to say, with the holidays quickly approaching, I haven't had very much opportunity to work on it.  However, I am getting to the end, and getting pretty excited about it at that. There are seventeen panels in all, and I am half way through with panel sixteen as I write this. Once the panels are completed, I only have some details in the corner pieces and the quilting ...

Time To Challange Myself #1: Objective

12-11-2008 05:56 PM by Joshua Howe | 3 comments »

Well, I recently built myself a new shop. I moved from an 8×8 to a 12×16 I know this isn’t much to most of you but it is huge for me. Now I have my tool out on display and I’m not working off the floor. I have always felt that I have the ability to create beautiful pieces of furniture and the Ideas have always been there. I mean, I have a sculpture degree, I received numerous awards for my work at the University of Montevallo. I don’t ever want to sound full ...

How did he do that? I suppose everyone has gotten a private message from Avelino. It looked suspicious so I did a search and find that name posted every few seconds. Lee

Rockwell Saw - Jointer Combination #1: 1970's Rockwell Table Saw Jointer Combination

07-30-2009 11:53 AM by Mark Duncan | 3 comments »

My dad bought this saw for $100 after we saw the ad on Craigslist.Since then i have had to adjust the fence, lube it, and put a new blade in it and it sounds like brand new.I cleaned the table off by using a wire brush for my drill and sanded the top with wet/dry sandpaper soaked in mineral spirits. But there is still some spots i missed. I was working on it until 11 PM outside underneath a dust to dawn light. So i suppose that’s an excuse. My next project for it is to build an outfeed ...

Raised Garden Fencing #4: 10 Footers Stained

06-22-2010 07:44 AM by BlankMan | 3 comments »

Well I finally made some progress on this. I got side tracked with my 80 gallon rocks that arrived and then installed a rain gutter on my neighbors garage so that I can collect the water. So I have one installed and with the rain we’ve been getting it’s full and really haven’t had to use it, well, because of the rain we’ve been getting… Made the stand it sits on and the diverter on the downspout to divert the water to it only until it is filled then it goes down ...

Small Router Plane

01-01-2014 09:56 PM by nobuckle | 3 comments »

I finally got around to making this small router plane. It’s been on the “I’ll make it someday” list for a long while. I’m sure many of you can relate. It didn’t take long to make, even while trying to capture the build on camera. I used a pattern that I found online, it was titled $5 Router Plane. You can watch how I made mine here. I made mine a little smaller than the one in the plans. It’s made from Cherry with only a couple coats of paste wax on ...

Hi everyone, Have not posted here in a little while, been keeping busy in the wood shop! I’ve finally put together another video for my your tube channel. I’ve been working on a dining table base made with steel and some bent laminated Walnut. Have a look here as I pull the newly formed leg piece off of the mold and show you exactly how the table base will look once completed. Thanks hope you like it.Paul
