Dust Collection #3: Table Saw - Rigid 3650

05-20-2014 03:34 AM by J Azuma | 3 comments »

This guy has been an ongoing battle for a while and I motivated again today to improve it. I had closed in the open contractor frame with a bunch of plywood screwed into place (not caulked or sealed), a slotted plate closed up the back, and I hooked up a shop vac to the port on the arbor assembly. I feel that this collected about 95% of the dust. My problem was that the remaining 5% was being shot out from the blade right into my face. A great article in Fine Woodworking by Richard Babbitt...

Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #11: Pattern Routing the Segmented Table Edges

05-06-2017 02:33 AM by TungOil | 3 comments »

In laying out the segmented edges for the top, my goal is to highlight the figured grain in the center of the table without drawing attention to the edge border. I select a single 8/4” quarter sawn board long enough to cut all of the border parts in sequence. The quarter sawn material has a distinctly different appearance and displays the classic ribbon strip pattern. By cutting the borders from a single board I get the best color consistency around the table. By laying out the part...

Shop Upgrade - 2014 #1: Extreme Makeover - Shop Edition

06-12-2014 07:24 AM by scoobydooo9r | 3 comments »

Well, just about a week or two after I finally got around to shooting a shop tour video, I decided to finally purchase a drum sander which forced me to rearrange the shop. Of course, since I knew that changes were coming, I also decided it was as good a time as any to really take a look at the shop and fix the nagging problems that I encounter here and there. So, here’s a short list of things that will be upgraded: 1. Dust Collection 2. Shop Layout 3. Lighting 4. Too...

I figured it’s time to start my blog on Lumberjocks, and what better way than to announce that I’ve started an Etsy store for my woodwork (so far just cutting boards, but more to follow) and my wife’s mosaics! If you want to take a look, it’s here: Regards,Patrick

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1507: Spring Triple Scoop Project Completed

02-27-2015 01:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It is NOT snowing today. The sun is shining and I can actually see hints of blue sky peeking from behind the clouds. (And yes – I am happy about it!) Those of you who read often know that I love winter. I love just about any season that comes to Clare, Nova Scotia. I long ago stopped being crabby about the weather because there is truly nothing that I could do about it. I figure it is a poor use of my time complaining about something that I have so little control over (aside f...

Wood Movement Calculator

10-21-2007 07:37 PM by Karson | 3 comments »

There has been a lot of discussion on this site and probably others about wood movement. How much does wood move What about quartersawn lumber Does flat sawn lumber move more than Quarter Sawn The US Government has created a Wood Handbook that has lots of tables but how does that become useful? I took the tables and created an Excel Spreadsheet to calculate the wood movement. But, I came across a wood Movement Calculator that you can download and run on your computer. This pro...
