Making walnut slabs with a saw mill - Wood mizer LT40-HD

02-28-2015 01:01 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 1 comment » In this video I’m making lumber from some Canadian Black Walnut logs on a 1992 wood-mizer LT-40HD. I’m flitch sawing the logs keeping the live edge on. Which is not only good for table tops, I get extra lumber that I can use for my chairs because of the curves of the legs, fit the curve of the boards. As always thanks for watching!

In this video, I have a nice piece of figured walnut, and resaw it to make book matched drawer fronts. These pieces get laminated to another piece of walnut. I also make a small frame for the hutch to rest on the top, and make the top. And of course, everything gets inlay!As always, I welcome your questions and comments!

Precisely setting up the Freud 99-034 Lock Miter Bit regardless of thickness

02-28-2015 12:26 AM by CTBlankenship | 5 comments »

Introduction Just to let you know, three months ago I was a woodworking novice … seriously novice. So green in fact that I did not realize it is completely impossible to setup one of these bits with a Lowe’s Bosch Adjustable Router Table. So, I purchased some JessEm products and a Wixey Digital Height Gauge with Fractions. I then began the process of working with a lock miter bit. I started with a Katana Lock Miter Router Bit (#17850) and their setup block (#9755). The problem being t...

Dust Collection #1: Dust Collection System Overview

02-28-2015 12:22 AM by mbroz | 1 comment »

As part of setting up my wood shop, I decided adding a dust collection system was high on my priority list. I did a fair amount of research (somewhere between due diligence and mild obsessiveness) and did my best to make the decisions that fit my needs. I decided to post some information here since I got a lot of good data and advice from others here (and other sites). Sorry if this gets a bit long. Please note that I recognize there are many opinions on the “right” way to ...

19 foot Offshore Power Dory Build #7: Finishing the Fiberglass on the Boat

02-27-2015 10:21 PM by English | 4 comments »

I am at 180 hours on the build and the boat weighs 835 lbs. Since my last update I have added another layer of fiberglass to the entire boat and 3 coats of epoxy filler. I had some issues with the epoxy fill coats, the epoxy I am using is 600cc viscosity. that’s very thin. It runs very badly . I discovered today after sanding off my runs from the 2nd coat, that if I used a 1/4” foam roller, I could roll it on thin enough that it did not run. It did leave a lot of bubbles in...

My RAS produces sawdust like there’s no tomorrow! So i bought a funnel shaped dust collector off the internet (i think it was about 15 bucks) and then took a couple of pieces of cherry and built a bracket for the bottom edge of the funnel. I then attached the cherry bracket to the RAS table. Pictures below.

Request: Ideas for Router Jig for Ruler Tick Marks

02-27-2015 07:18 PM by OppyOppy | 0 comments »

I am making (as many others have) a growth chart for a relative. I have made one for my daughter prior to this build. The piece is made from walnut (sides) and maple (middle). The maple section is divided into 4” high ‘tiles’, with tick marks every 2 ”. The top most ‘tile’ comes out and the other tiles can be slid up to the space and then removed. The idea was that my daughter could remove the tile for the appropritae height, and send it to me wit...

Estate Sale Finds #1: Stanley Bedrock 605C Jack Plane

02-27-2015 05:48 PM by Jeff | 4 comments »

Any of you guys like to hit the estate sales looking for used tools? I have recently started going to Estate Sales instead of garage sales. There seems to be more valuable “junk” at the Estate Sales. Sometimes you can find good deals if you get there first. Sometimes you pass someone walking out the door when you are walking in with the item you wanted to buy. And sometimes you find a killer deal like I did last weekend on this hand plane. Here is my latest find. ...

Interesting Wood #1: Hierloom Cypress with a Surprise

02-27-2015 05:10 PM by SilverbackReef | 3 comments »

I try to use local wood as much as I can. This blog series is intended to capture and share some of the more interesting items I find. This entry covers some wood I’ve had for a few years. The wood is cypress that was grown and milled in east central Florida. The trees were felled and the boards were milled on order for my father more than 30 years ago. My father, brother and I used it to build a fence around my parent’s 3/4 acre property. After my parents passed awa...
