I need my saw to be able to move and the factory base isn’t exactly made for such. I took some ideas from some Youtube videos and decided to jump in and make a one for my Craftsman contractor saw. the videos:Laney ShaughnessyEd Rivera i was a pocket holing fool starting some assembly it’s sitting about 36” above where it will be going….

Does anyone know or can tell what type of molding machine Norm uses. From first glimpse is appears by the color and the us flag to be a Hawk made in KC, MO. However, they have blacked out the nameplate.Thanks, tooldad

Wooden Mechanics style tool box/chest

1685 days ago by tooldad | 1 comment »

This is my next project, a wooden mechanic’s style tool chest and I will have a matching top to go with it. All in all I expect about 30 drawers. At least I bought enough of the handle material to do so. My plan is full extension drawer slides. 2 1/2” drawers except for the bottom 2 rows. The top chest will have a hinged lid with shock absorber supports. If I’m going to drop a grand on a nice toolbox, I might as well build it, is my thinking. My question for the mass...

Learning the Basics #1: Learning to mill lumber by hand

1670 days ago by postoastie | 1 comment »

I’ve just started learning about woodworking and collecting tools. One thing I’ve learned so far is that I should have made a jointer and a thickness planer some of my first purchases. I didn’t. I chose other power tools I thought I needed, and now I will have to wait on the jointer and planer. Oh, well.In the mean time, I am teaching myself to mill to dimension by hand the lumber I am using. I am making a workbench, or trying to. I want to make it with all wood and gl...

A carved lid box for my Daughter who loves Orangutans #4: Tools and Rules- Part one

1590 days ago by wyeth | 1 comment »

DisclaimerI want to make it quite clear that I am a very raw beginner at wood carving and not much more at woodworking – this blog is presented so that you can share the adventure, mistakes and all (and I suspect there will be many of them). So don’t take anything I say or do as gospel or think you are learning from an expert! I do have some background experience that may give me some advantages having performed in the order of 30,000 surgical operations over a 30 year peri...

Adjustable angle jig

1357 days ago by Jeff | 1 comment »

Been wrestling with the problem of how to cut the miter angles on a curved top panel to a carcass with uneven side heights. The big problem are the curved nature of the panel and the fact that the angles are acute (past the 45 degree stop) and different on each side. Ended up building this adjustable jig. The slotted base lets me adjust distance from the blade, and the friction chest lid hardware the angle. I inked a line on the saw table with an ultra-fine Sharpie by registering a str...

Adirondack Chair Class #2: First things first

860 days ago by Betsy | 1 comment »

The chair for this class was designed by Wood Plan and brought to you by the editors of Wood Magazine. I’d like to think of this class as the BASF of these plans. “I don’t make the plans … I make them better.” Okay I’m tooting my horn just a little. But we will make some improvements on the plans and hopefully you’ll come out with a much better chair. Cedar or cypress are much better woods to use for Adirondack chairs because neither one requires any special coatings to last a lifetime. Ho...
