This didn’t quite fit any of the forum topics. Perhpas the coffee shop, but I decided to just blog it. Another “I’m curious” question. Does anybody own, or have a friend that does own, any of the various portable band saw lumber mills that are available? As you know there’s everything from an attachment for your large chainsaw to a mill that you can pull behind a pick-up truck with hydrolic log lifters etc. I’ve looked at pamplets and brochures of ...
It seems like I have been getting my shop ready forever. I’ve completed a few minor projects and started a few that are not finished. I started with the ntention of building guitars (and still intend to) but i have been more and more interested in building decorative boxes and clocks. You can’t work on the shop forever. I do need to run some new electrical circuits and eleminate some extension cords.DaleR So in trying to fix my earlier mistake and starting my blog entries again, I wanted t...
I know it has been a while since I last updated everyone on my progression in the class, so I will try and get back to where I’m at currently over the next week. When I last wrote, I let everyone know about my selection of wood for my clock. I was initially really excited about the prospects of using the Carolina Cherry, but my excitement quickly turned to disappointment during the milling process. Several people had warned me about the potential pitfalls with using urban lumber,...
This is my grandfather’s 1967 Delta Unisaw. It sat for years after his death from the time I was about 10 till I was in my first house at 25. Took minimal clean up and was ready to go. It had the original fence so I purchased a Delta upgrade. Not as nice as the Beisemeyer but not as expensive either. It was an easy bolt on and was exact right out of the box. You can also see my Jessem Miter which is a fantastic Miter. I run Freud blades and between these three upgrades the cuts on th...
Well, here are some photos from the first glue up: From Roubo SLumberThe Schwarz said that pine is resinous and resists glue so acetone helps. From Roubo SLumberThe roller idea is the Renaissance Woodworker’s—and i like it! From Roubo SLumber From Roubo SLumberProbably should have waited till it was a bit more dry and firm… Also, i decided to see what could be done with the botched stretchers.From Roubo SLumberCutting 4” off half of my bottom stretchers to make t...
A friend of mine asked me if I can make a small TV stand that will fit a speaker underneath it so naturally I said yes. I’m using stock material that has been laying around for about a year and this should be enough for the project at hand.So far I have planed and jointed all the boards to thickness, cut them to a rough dimension and glued together boards for the side and top using biscuits.These are for the stand sides.This will be for the oval top.Since I have a limited supply of cla...
Isn’t it strange how sometimes you can work and work and have nothing to show for it. Fortunately there are other times when a lot happens in a short period of time.One of the tricky parts of this design is the pillar ending outside of the soundbox. For this to work the grain of the wood had to run front to back. However, construction for the Limerick says that it is important to have the direction running side to side. My solution is a laminate of wood added on the interior- going side...
