The Coolidge Chronicles #7: Part 1 of 2 - Assembling Shop Fox W1743 Mutant Mortiser

11-23-2013 07:33 AM by darthford | 2 comments »

With the new table saw uncrated I returned my attention to assembly of the mutant mortiser before starting on that beast. Yes mutant, here’s the Shop Fox W1743 pic in the manual, the pic on Grizzly’s website matches this. Note the short base vs the Grizzly below. Also note how the column mounts, there’s a center hub it rides on with a bolt left and right to tighten the column into position. This design has been around for a long time for tilting head machines. Here...

My Site #46: EP048 - Shop Time with Michael Doerr

12-31-2013 10:26 PM by RavinHeart | 2 comments »

At my local guild meeting we had Michael Doerr give a presentation on his process of building sculpted chairs. After a few conversation with Michael we decided to record a conversation at his shop about his chairs and school. During our conversation we get to discuss how he got started in woodworking, some of his process for building chairs, and a great surprise to me … I get to return to Michael’s shop and learn the process in the spring. If you have questions for Michael or m...

Thien Baffle on the fly project #5: run test of Thien Baffle

04-13-2014 03:47 AM by Holbs | 2 comments »

my first video is my first test run with 25’ of 6” HVAC ducting sealed up, 10 of the 6” blast gates constructed, and first operation of my new Long Ranger III remote starter. The top 6” exit is not yet silicon’ed up til I decide on the need of a bellmouth or not, so just using leaky dust tape for time being. And this also shows why I went for a tophat in the first place when some debris rattles around which could of damaged my dust collector impeller.

Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair #10: Staining the Back Rest

05-24-2014 10:40 PM by TimBridge | 2 comments »

Based on discussion with some of the woodworkers on /r/woodworking, I opted to forego the pre-stain conditioner. I went again and stained the entire back rest with the dark walnut gel stain. Doesn’t look like Dark Walnut on most of the pieces though, eh? This is because, as I mentioned before, all the wood was second-hard from a friend of a friend’s bookshelf. I’m not sure if he had stained it previously or it was just the natural aging of the wood, but the color of ...

Frame and Panel Wainscoting #1: Research and Resources

12-04-2010 02:23 AM by DavidH | 2 comments »

Those of you who follow the blog on twitter know that I have taken a couple of weekends off from the slant front desk to complete work on a home improvement project that has been on my to-do list for most of the year. At the beginning of this year I laid hardwood floors throughout the house and have been steadily (but slowly) working on the trim work. In our formal living & dinning my wife and I decided to put up frame and panel wainscoting. Wainscoting in its traditional definitio...

Growing in the world of wood tools, but still "not too sharp"

02-03-2011 11:21 PM by WoodToolsdisciple | 2 comments »

Well, I’m certainly learning a great deal, here at Laguna Tools. The greatest lesson I’m learning is how much I don’t know about woodworking. And tools. But Laguna is hanging in with me, which as a novice, I appreciate. The company is offering some combo sales and some registration sales, but nothing earth shattering, just some decent deals. I do appreciate the responces I’ve received since my entry into Lumberjocks. As most of you can quickly figure out, my posting...

Board Game Travel Case #7: Completed the case.

09-08-2011 11:34 AM by ChadR | 2 comments »

I have finally completed the case. What took so long was making each drawer. Because I am still new to woodworking I make little mistakes here and there. These mistakes made it impossible to cut out all the pieces for each drawer in uniform size. I had to custom size each drawer. I have none the less completed them all have moved all of my board games into the case, which fits perfectly. I am going on a road trip and will be bringing my new case with me. So the case will be getting a real tes...
