Delta Unisaw

01-19-2010 06:57 AM by GrandsonOfRue | 3 comments »

This is my grandfather’s 1967 Delta Unisaw. It sat for years after his death from the time I was about 10 till I was in my first house at 25. Took minimal clean up and was ready to go. It had the original fence so I purchased a Delta upgrade. Not as nice as the Beisemeyer but not as expensive either. It was an easy bolt on and was exact right out of the box. You can also see my Jessem Miter which is a fantastic Miter. I run Freud blades and between these three upgrades the cuts on th...

05-13-2010 03:32 PM by naomi weiss | 3 comments »

Well, here are some photos from the first glue up: From Roubo SLumberThe Schwarz said that pine is resinous and resists glue so acetone helps. From Roubo SLumberThe roller idea is the Renaissance Woodworker’s—and i like it! From Roubo SLumber From Roubo SLumberProbably should have waited till it was a bit more dry and firm… Also, i decided to see what could be done with the botched stretchers.From Roubo SLumberCutting 4” off half of my bottom stretchers to make t...

TV Stand

08-31-2010 12:44 AM by johnnymo | 3 comments »

A friend of mine asked me if I can make a small TV stand that will fit a speaker underneath it so naturally I said yes. I’m using stock material that has been laying around for about a year and this should be enough for the project at hand.So far I have planed and jointed all the boards to thickness, cut them to a rough dimension and glued together boards for the side and top using biscuits.These are for the stand sides.This will be for the oval top.Since I have a limited supply of cla...

DragonFly Harp #8: 1/25/2011 Sound Box Completed

01-25-2011 10:59 PM by Donna Menke | 3 comments »

Isn’t it strange how sometimes you can work and work and have nothing to show for it. Fortunately there are other times when a lot happens in a short period of time.One of the tricky parts of this design is the pillar ending outside of the soundbox. For this to work the grain of the wood had to run front to back. However, construction for the Limerick says that it is important to have the direction running side to side. My solution is a laminate of wood added on the interior- going side...

A Hard Place To Get To

03-07-2011 12:58 PM by amateur | 3 comments »

Work, family, community, faith, work, household chores, walking the dog, work…who has time for woodworking? As an amateur (one who does it for the love of it), my people and responsibilities, though I love them all, regularly push my furniture making passion to the back burner. Perhaps that is why time in the shop is so satisfying.Lunchbreak at work was spent separated from co-workers today so that I could make a sketch update and plan the most efficient way to execute. My couple of hou...

Historic Woodworker Videos #1: Paul Prybil, First Commerically Available Bandsaw

07-30-2011 11:11 PM by Hoosierwoodcraft | 3 comments »

In June, I researched the history of Paul Prybil, who invented the first commerically available bandsaw. The video is posted at Here was a man that made a lot of money in his lifetime. To see his story, see the video. After I posted this video, I got a call from the great great grandson on Paul Prybil. He told him that his great grandfather lived in a wonderful life in Long Island, with many servants. After a dinner with J P MOrgan in the 1...

CYLINDER MAKING #4: Wooden Hinge for Cylinder... Is it possible?

07-30-2012 12:37 PM by BertFlores58 | 3 comments »

The hardest challenge in this series is to make the WOODEN HINGE for a cylinder side. The difficulty of the curve fitting and the alignment of the pin to cater the correct pivot. LID PART . The lid being the one that is on top will take the whole arc that will be close to the outermost part and length will just be enough to hold the post on each end. This must be tangent to the circumference and must be at right angle (at first only so as to route the slot that will hold the pin). You ...

Getting started

04-04-2013 03:48 PM by Adam | 3 comments »

After reading a few of the fellow LJ blogs, I decided that making one of my own might help stimulate my creativity. I’ve never really been much for blogging, but maybe this will spur a new interest for me. That’s how I got into woodworking in the first place. I needed some new hobby or something to keep me busy in my spare time. As time has passed, I wonder what happened to all of that spare time that I used to have. It seems like I don’t have any nowadays. (can any of...
