Charcoal as an Anniversary present?

09-26-2010 03:35 AM by RJS | 3 comments »

My wife and I had out 6th wedding anniversary at the end of August. The Traditional gift is Iron, modern gift is Wood. Lucky for her, that is two of my favorite hobbies! I decided to make her a Weather Station from Woodcraft. I was going to make it out of a Redbud Tree cut down from my parents place. Unfortunately my hand was broken at the time of our anniversary, so, fast forward until today. I cut the lumber from the firewood pile with an axe, hatchet, and two sledge hammers, I could not g...

Milling 3" Black Walnut Slabs for fireplace mantels

10-19-2010 03:13 PM by Matt Pec | 3 comments »

I’ll be milling some 6’ long Black Walnut today for a customer who’s interested in fireplace mantels. Pics to follow. I’m thrilled…it’s been awhile since I’ve cut anything 3” or thicker. Okay, several hours later and I’m done with the milling. Pics are coming up shortly. I ended up with (2) 12/4 slabs 6’ long, 8-11” wide and (1) 5/4 board that was all I could salvage from the remainder of the log. Hope you like em! F...

Dewalt RAS Restoration #3: Motor and Motor Carriage

04-27-2011 04:19 PM by milbert | 3 comments »

Continuing to work up the saw I got the next big chunk of work done, the motor and the motor carriage. I followed pretty much the same process I used while doing the base. Like I said before, this saw is in great working shape and had been used daily by the gentleman that had it before. I both the motor bearings and track bearings had already been replaced. They were in good shape so all I needed to do was give them a thorough cleaning. I also hand painted the embossed DeWalt logo ‘k...

Christmas 2011 Just Got Better!!!

01-08-2012 07:06 PM by matt garcia | 3 comments »

As you know, I work for an incredible boss!! This year, with my Christmas bonus, I purchased a Bench Dog Cast Iron router table extension for my table saw. I was so stoked when I read on Rockler’s website that it fit their Router Lift FX. Little did I know that they changed the plate dimension, and my current model was too small. So I had to wait until payday to get a new one. A few days passed, and there I was at the Rockler counter, when their associate offered me a 20% discount!...

Table Saw update, and some other things

02-26-2012 12:22 AM by Jeremy Greiner | 3 comments »

One thing I enjoy about woodworking is the “walk away” nature of it. If you are stumped on a project, or just don’t feel like dealing with a certain task you can walk away and come back to it later. For a long while I was having trouble figuring out the best way to glue up the base cabinet that would sit under my sawstop contractor saw. also had the fear of screwing it up and having to start it over, being overwhelmed by these things I set the project aside for a while. A...

SketchUp and Plugins for woodworkers #1: Comp2LayerScene

09-14-2012 11:35 PM by ktkoh | 3 comments »

I have written and released a sketchup plugin that helps organize your drawing components into separate layers and creates a scene that is meant to be used as a 2D dimensional drawing that can be printed. Note that this only works on Components not on groups. This should not be a problem as I think all the experts suggest that each part should be a component because of all the advandages they add. Currently this plugin is available in the plugin forum You will need to regester to be able to...

From a 200 year old ruin to a workshop, a 3 year journey... #2: Cleaning out the ruin

05-06-2013 07:42 AM by Serradura | 3 comments »

After the dust was gone we could see what we bought. It’s strange to realize that just a decade ago, somebody lived in this building. No water, no toilet, no electricity. It must have been a simple and poor life for the old lady that spend her last years in this, what used to be the main house of a farm. As a woodworker, tears get in to your eyes, seeing that the former owner didn’t clean out the property before putting it down. The big stone wall went half thru the flo...
