Drill Press Table #3: Going T-Track Crazy

06-10-2009 03:53 PM by Jon3 | 3 comments »

First, I grabbed my block plane and smoothing plane, and cleaned up my recent banding addition. It came out quite good looking. With a recent post to Woodnet pointing out you can get fairly cheap T-Track from McMaster-Carr, and myself in possession of a new Freud LU90M blade, I decided to completely overdo the top with T-track for fence and hold down positions. Whee! First up, dado up some grooves. I also decided I wanted my intersections to be nice and neat. No fiddling ...

Dust Collector #4: Contractor Saw enclosed for dust

07-05-2009 07:17 PM by sjbob | 3 comments »

I’ve just finished adding a box to the back of my old contractor’s saw to enclose the entire motor/belt assembly, and a dust port below the saw. I had replaced the motor drive belt previously with a Power Twist Link belt assembled to the same size as the factory belt. With this belt, however, the motor would rotate above the top surface of the tablesaw. I lengthened the belt by adding a couple more links, made sure that it did not hit anything throughout the rotation, and was...

I hope those who are following enjoy it. http://extremelyaverage.com/2010/10/henry-wood-two-hours-to-go-ch-28/ Brian

Latest in the Shop

02-20-2011 08:11 AM by WhiskeyWaters | 3 comments »

Quick project last weekend: finished hours before the house flooded and my home shop became closed until further notice. I’ve got the birch sitting around, so Ill probably build two or three more. The diameter on these drums isn’t exactly right for its height & I want to make a tin drumhead rather than stretched poster-paper. The mallet came out well though – if I ever make a xylophone or something, I’ll use the method I used here. —WW

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #559: The Payoff

12-21-2011 01:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

As we get closer to the holiday season, things have slowed down considerably on the site. While the month of November was the best month that we have had so far, December has so far been a bit quieter and the orders have tapered off quite a bit. You would think that would bother me, but it really doesn’t. It only makes sense to me because of the type of product we offer. Patterns are the first step of the creation process and this month people are spending time using the patterns t...

Just checking in...

03-03-2012 03:59 PM by Keni | 3 comments »

Well, I have since my last post shut the doors on my business and got a job to support my family. I have sold some of my unused tools for extra money to get by and then sold my truck. I have since bought another truck and still enjoy the little time I get to spend in the shop. My oldest daughter has two kids making me a proud grampa! My oldest son has been living in Alaska since September and seems to be finally growing up! My youngest boy is Mr. baseball! 12 months a year! Lots o...
