Table Saw Upgrade to Powermatic 66 3 phase

08-30-2012 12:23 AM by amplifiednation | 3 comments »

Just joined the forum after reading countless posts…I have learned so much I want a chance to give back and share an experience I am having this week upgrading my main table saw to a Powermatic 66. This saw has a three phase motor, I’ll be using a TECO VFD to get three phase. I’m having 220v being run to the saw’s location on Friday, and that electrician will help me get the VFD wired. I am a cabinet maker who builds speaker cabinets and guitar amplifier cabinet...

How It All Began

02-20-2013 01:48 PM by Chris Mobley | 3 comments »

How it All Began!My love for woodworking began with my father. When I was young, my dad had a workshop that I would always sit and watch him work. He was a man of few words, but I enjoyed watching him work. I don’t remember exactly what my first project was, but at around age 13, I remember asking my father if I could use his saw for the first time. I remember his response being “Sure, just don’t hurt yourself.” I have great memories of just hanging out in the workshop. A lot of the time, I w...

Splitter from a shelf bracket

01-05-2014 08:55 PM by CueballRosendaul | 3 comments »

My new (to me) Unisaw didn’t come with any safety equipment, and I’ve been having trouble finding a splitter that I like, so I decided that until I find one I really like, I’ll just make one and add it to my new ZC throat plate. I laid in bed last night racking my brain over what material I might have that would be easy to work with and I remembered some old shelf brackets I wasn’t using. I popped the end cap off, cut the dog legs off, did most of the filing and shapin...

My lathe journeys. #8: ... next one.. Other half of that heavy, wet log.

12-26-2014 08:59 PM by JoeinGa | 3 comments »

So I took the other half of that wet log I did last week and turned it too. ... This log was also 12” long and about 9” across the flat side. It’s black gum. I got one side a bit thin and a chunk of bark came flying off. I didn’t do any “action shots” while I was turning, so here’s the bowl. ........These next two shots show how the grain lined up when it was still one piece. The little white specks are from the rag I’ve been using to slath...

Beehive Handhold Cutting Jig #1: Cutting Handholds on the table saw

02-07-2015 11:07 PM by RoadHogg | 3 comments »

We are planning to get some honey bees this summer and we will need about 25 hive boxes. Since the boxes look pretty straight forward to build, I thought I’d leverage my wood shop and build them myself. A retail box is $15.00 plus taxes and that’s not assembled. The hive box uses a 7/8” box joint, I built a box joint jig for that but I found it more difficult to devise a way to make those nice scalloped handles you see on hives. The requirements for the handles a...

Making a Compound Miter Joint

12-25-2006 10:52 PM by Don | 3 comments »

[The following is an article I wrote for a woodworking club’s newsletter. It’s about making the small box I have just listed in My Projects showing the compound miter joint. Click on the links as you read to see pictures.] Sometimes the simpler they look, the more difficult they are to make. In the small box shown here, I was challenged with a joint that I had not preciously seen. I don’t know what it’s called, but I refer to it as an “interlocking miter joint”. It’s a combinat...

"Waunderin' Characters of Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

11-01-2007 01:42 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Waunderin’ Characters of Wood time is the culmination of the work of a universe, where were it not for others of me singing verse, i might even think that i was the only teller of rhyme, but as so often happens to actors in fields of mime, —-words fade and my hands give in to waunderin’ characters of wood…. So put your mind boots of imagination on and here we go once again, in the dusk of a fading sun, into the throes of cacoethes…. ....’...
