Iturra for band saw blades...maybe more

05-14-2013 10:00 PM by TuckerFan | 3 comments »

I read on this site about Iturra band saw blade company from Jacksonville, Florida. Specifically, a LumberJock stated that this company would advise customers away from expensive products and all-too-numerous quantities. That is exactly what this gentleman from Iturra did…saved me hundreds of dollars, advised me as to what blades are necessary, what blades would be great to have, and what blades would just be stupidly ridiculous to buy. None of my questions were dumb questions and ...

Turning #2: 4 in 1 Screwdriver

01-12-2014 02:58 AM by Joe Watson | 3 comments »

CapnEddie a user on youtube did a video on 4 in 1 screwdrivers. He took a cheap 1.99 home depot unit and broke off the plastic handle from the metal inside. He then turned a new screwdriver to fit the old screwdriver. I started by putting the piece on my lathe and using a bowl gouge turning off the plastic handle After that I have a kit with a metal piece that needs to be epoxied in after you turn the handle. I drilled in two steps first drilling a whole to accomadate the length of ...

First mortise

03-20-2014 01:38 PM by TechTeacher04 | 3 comments »

First impressions are high, powermatic 701 is heavy, almost 100 pounds. The lever arm is sculpted nicely and is comfortable. Action of the power head is very smooth. Can’t wait to make a panel. Mortising tip, many video show to make first cuts at end of the mortise then space them in the middle to remove the waste, this technique works great.

Morris Chair #3: Framing the Base Bliss

01-14-2015 01:32 PM by Luddite | 3 comments »

13 Jan 2015 Past few days I’ve completed the leg blanks. Prepared the upper and lower side rails with stub tenons. Using a taper jig cut the top rails to match the desired angle. Cut and sized the front and back rails along with the seat support cleats. Once done with these I carefully marked each leg with the mortise positions making sure of their relative locations. Two lefts don’t make a right. Mortising was a long grueling smoking endeavor. At first I’...

DIY Aluminum Extrusion Fence #1: My journey towards better accuracy

01-17-2015 12:28 PM by rhybeka | 3 comments »

So this blog is being started as a journey for me. That and the original thread is pretty big. Hutch and TeenAngel have done a fantastic job, but I would like to keep my specifics somewhere I can find them. And possibly give some folks with the same/similar saw more pictures since I know I am quite visual when working with this kind of stuff. Anyway, to get started the original blog is here: I’ll have to edit this post later with exactly the...

One Board Furniture Build-Off #2: Well I Finished It!

05-03-2008 09:37 PM by Michael Hacker | 3 comments »

I finished my entry with only a few setbacks along the way! I entered my photos at 11:30pm April 30th and unfortunately i wasn’t able to shoot my photos as professionally as i wanted. I had planned on making a pub scene and having some friends over to break the table in with a few drinks and food. But my wife got called into work, my friends were distracted, and so i was left alone! More importantly i didn’t have anyone to help me move the table from the basement because i need...

Hi All, Well I have put all projects on hold so I can clean my shop. That is why there hasn’t been any projects since the game boards. As I clean I am also organizing and possibly going to remove the carpet in my shop finally.I also figured if I am going to host a Lumber Jock picnic, I may want to clean my shop so I can show it off. In the process of cleaning so far I have found a few tools that I have been looking for. I am really going to organize the shop the way it should be. Whi...
