So I was sitting one day trying to figure out what to do with a big chunk of cherry that a friend had given me.see the thing is that it wasn’t dried properly so it cracked like a toronto city road and had knots all thru it…. I didn’t have the heart to tell my friend it was useless. Plus I was stubborn and determined to find a way to make something nice out of it.I cut a couple useful chunks off to use as accent pieces in the future, but mostly it just keep getting put under...

'This Old Crack House' #3: The cast of charaters

02-19-2007 01:29 AM by Dusty | 3 comments »

They say that time flies. I think that’s a fib. I don’t think it’s true when you live across the street from a nightmare. It now had become a ‘daymare’. I work split shifts and am home at least six hours a day during the daylight hours. I work in my woodshop during that time. I like having my garage door open. I leave it open so I can see what’s going on across the street and around the neighborhood. My workshop has become the neighborhood center point. We came to live in this neig...

Simple scrolled mantel clock

08-05-2007 08:48 AM by Steve Good | 3 comments »

I just added a free scroll saw pattern to my Blog over at . This is a simple to cut mantel clock for beginning scrollers. I have not posted any of my work here yet so I thought this was a good time. If anyone here likes to use the scroll saw come on by and download the free pattern. Most of the patterns I post on my site are aimed at beginning scrollers. If you want to use up some scrap wood, and your scroll saw is just sitting in the corner why not come ...

Different Joints

01-08-2009 06:43 PM by DannyBoy | 3 comments »

Every woodworker has scrap wood setting around the shop just waiting to be purged or merged. I’m no exception and I’m sure I’m not alone in the thought that I just can’t seem to part with the 3/4” plywood 6” by 9” piece because it could be useful sometime in the future. In particular, I have several scraps of 1x material laying around. In an effort to clean up my shop, I’ve decided to make something out of some of my scrap rather than just th...

$50 24" Grizzly drum sander #4: Recycling day

12-30-2009 05:00 AM by drfixit | 3 comments »

Ok, so as we know, most of the sheet metal panels are missing. I could buy them from Grizzly, but my dad scraps old airconditioners. He gets big roof top units with large flat sheet metal… so time to recycle.Starting with this… Using my multimaster I scrape off the glued on insulation… Then using a plasma cutter to cut the panels to size… Saving $165 by not buying premade panels from Grizzly… Now just grind the edges and sand the panels down, a litt...

Table Saw Upgrade #7: Alignment and New Blade

03-21-2011 06:41 AM by MikeGCNY | 3 comments »

I finished aligning the saw this weekend and built some cabinets with it. I replaced the Amana blade that I had on this saw with a Ridge Carbide TS2000. All I can saw is “WOW!” I like this blade even better than the WW II that I had on my contractor saw. I made a little video of the new blade in action.

The Delta 18-900L Drill Press

06-05-2011 02:47 AM by thiswoodshop | 3 comments »

This is a very well build drill press. I have done and bought other brands and this was the better one. I must say I am very disappointed in the Powermatic Drill press and I am not the only one if you read all the bad reviews that out there for it. The Delta is awesome, it best feature I think is the low noise that it produces when it is on. You can actually listen to music or have a conversation wile its running. My cordless drill makes more noise than this. This mean allows you to use mi...

Indexing Pin Jig For Wood Lathe

08-29-2011 09:54 AM by Grumpy | 3 comments »

I recently had a need to use the indexing section on my lathe to drill holes at exact & even spacings.I did not want to buy an expensive part to do the trick so I came up with a do it yourself simple solution.I already had a couple of ‘Magswitch Mag Jigs’, see that was a big starting point. All I needed was a small piece of 2”X1” scrap pine and some Perspex & one of the Magswitch jigs.You could use a light metal plate instead of ...
