Table Saw station #2: Building the frame and mounting the saw.

08-22-2017 08:51 AM by PatesWoodshop | 2 comments »

After making the initial mock up and getting an idea of how I wanted this to turn out I took everything apart and started cutting out what may or may not be considered a half lap since I didn’t “half” the amount cut out on each piece and instead notched out the thickness of the 2×4’s into the 4×4 legs. Whatever the name, it’s not going anywhere now. You can see I initially made a square frame for each side from the 4×4 legs and 2×4 cros...

Table Saw station #1: Planning and Mock Up

08-22-2017 08:29 AM by PatesWoodshop | 0 comments »

I own a cheap little table saw that only has about 18 inches of clearance to the right of the blade and wanted to be able to rip down wider pieces. I initially looked at aftermarket fence systems but the only ones I could find were in the neighborhood of 300 bucks. That wasn’t in the budget and a shiny new saw wasn’t either. I watched a video on Youtube where a guy built his own table saw and used T-Track to make a fence. Seeing the price of T-Track was much more within my comf...

Restoring The Machine Plow Plane (Kikai Shakuri Kanna)

08-22-2017 08:16 AM by Lemongrasspicker | 1 comment »

View on YouTube If you haven’t noticed I am a big fan of the Japanese methods and thoughts behind woodworking. And as such I do alot of reading on the topic and ever since I saw a drawing of one of these planes in Toshio Odate’s book on tools I have wanted one very badly. I’d wager that each craftsman has his favorite tool, something that he just enjoys for no reason other than “he simply does”. this tool is it for me. The challenge of it I find invigorating. W...

Baby Furniture #1: The Baby Furniture has been picked out!

08-21-2017 10:36 PM by Jason Martin | 3 comments »

We found out that we was pregnant again the other day but was not wanting to get our hopes up until we had the first ultrasound done and was told that this pregnancy was going good. Today we got that good news from the doctor so we went straight out to the baby store to start looking at the baby furniture to see what my wife would want. I told her that I wanted to build it myself that way it could stay in the family for generations hopefully. In the pictures below you will see what we have ...

Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #21: Fitting Ebony Splines and Plugs

08-21-2017 09:24 PM by TungOil | 8 comments »

The next step is to Fit the ebony splines around the perimeter of the table edge and install the remaining square plugs. The splines where the table opens for the leaves have both a curved face and one end exposed, requiring careful fitting. For these splines, I leave a tab that will be sanded for a precise fit along the inside edge. To set the splines, I first adjust the curved end for a clean fit. Then, I gradually sand the tab on the disc sander until the spline has an even reveal a...

Workshop recovery (South LA Flood 2016) #10: Insulation, AC, acoustic tiles, walls; oh my

08-21-2017 09:44 AM by FreddieMac | 2 comments »

Had another productive weekend in the woodshop. I managed to get the AC mounted into the window and provide some good cooling to start working on the interior. The 10K BTU AC does a pretty good job of fighting off the heat. My next task was to finish putting up all the insulation. I found the AC had enough power to keep the room at a comfortable 75 degrees. But, the heat coming through the roof was still palpable. You put your hand in the air and still feel that heat. So, I finished up...

Winning the Sumguy lottery

08-20-2017 10:57 PM by MDots | 0 comments »

I am not a lucky person, despite my Irish heritage. I have never won a game of bingo, or one of those stick-your-name-in-the-hat drawings, or anything like that. However, lady luck might have accidentally turned her head and sneezed in my direction while hanging on the arm of a far handsomer man than myself, as I have had more wood related luck in the past few weeks. I may have mentioned before that I work in a shop adjacent to a hardwood flooring company, and occasionally dig through t...
