Roll Top Secretaries Desk #2: Project Done

09-07-2010 06:22 AM by Jim | 3 comments »

Well the Roll Top Secretary Desk is now finished. It’s been many months in the making. What’s really amazing is that I didn’t really have any “Oh No, what have I done!” moments with this project. Everything just went together well and did what it was supposed to do. I wish all my projects went like that. Some of the real turning points of the project were: I was buying the canvas for the tambour, wondering if...

camphor tray thing #2: finishing and delivery!

12-22-2011 02:59 PM by Pete | 3 comments »

I neglected to take photos of the copious amounts of sanding that followed the initial shaping. There was some chisel action in there but not too much. Visited carbatec in sydney last weekend and picked up a spoon plane thinking that it might help clean up the inside. Total bust, maybe I was using it incorrectly but it just didn’t want to work very well at all. At least it was only $26! Picture in your mind a beardy man with dustmask and eye protection wielding an angle grinder wi...

Thank you my friends on LJ #1: Its looking a lot like Christmas

12-19-2012 04:47 PM by sandhill | 3 comments »

Thank you for the good wishes to my wife and my self from LJ’s and AFSM. My wife’s surgery was a success and the damage was 100% reversed. Acute subdural hematomas are among the deadliest of all head injuries but I am happy to say she did well, she still has a CT scan to get in about six weeks but the doctor is confident it will be OK. With that said we had to cancel our class at AFSM in Feb mostly due to the financial burden this operation put on our pocket book but that’s ...

Table Saw Bearing Replacement and Housing Re-Painting

04-14-2013 04:04 AM by Jason Peabody | 3 comments »

I have one of the old Craftsman 113.27520 10 inch table saws from the 50’s. The arbor bearings finally went on it last weekend and I disassembled it and pressed them out. I couldn’t get a very consistent read on them or the arbor with my calipers, but it seemed pretty clear they were 5/8” ID, 1-3/8” OD and 7/16” thick. I figured they HAD to be fractional sizes, since the saw is so old. I ordered some replacements from McMaster-Carr. They didn’t fit. The ...

Air dried, Kiln dried, WD-40 dried! 6 hours instead of 6 months

09-16-2013 03:17 AM by Sanding2day | 3 comments »

It is stated right there on the can, “drives out moisture”... Well ok, have never heard of nor believe that this would not have been discovered and a mighty fine quick trick if there wasn’t a downside… But made you look :) Anyone know the effects of WD-40 on wood feel free to share… Certainly know that I have recently been putting plenty of it on wooden handles and the like while cleaning riveted metals etc. but wipe it off fairly quickly and have never...

A Strategy for Woodworking #13: A Neatness and Precision

07-28-2014 04:31 PM by Gary Rogowski | 3 comments »

In Pete Dexter’s book Deadwood, Wild Bill Hickok’s partner, Charley Utter, is thinking to himself, “He liked having a drawer, it was a neatness you could see just sliding it open.” Making drawers requires a precision and calm missing from some other jobs around the shop. Cleaning out the dust collector comes to mind. Or hand planing some misbegotten wood like a rowed grain khaya. Drawer building on the other hand needs careful measuring, straight parts, and clear thinking to do a good job....
