103.23900 Jointer #2: Together again

10-02-2014 04:30 AM by B4B | 1 comment »

I finally got back to this today. I already picked up some nuts and bolts. I bolted the whole thing back together. I also ordered a Grizzly H8243 paddle switch for it which came in today. Total parts cost is nearing $35, and I’m not quite done yet. I got the tables aligned so they are coplanar, and passed the paper test (no feeler gauges, just a sheet of paper). For those wondering, there are three height adjustment “screws” on the outfeed table. Two near the cutter...

Just for Fun... #90: Get a Grip!

10-02-2014 03:08 AM by littlecope | 1 comment »

So the final details have begun on this Mystery Project…As was said at the end of the last blog, the Cherry that was purchased will be the story here, it is to be used for all of the Hardware and Trim…First it had to be squared and Planed… Since this Box is kinda large, I thought it would be a good idea to give it handles on either end, the easier to lift it with… While the block of Cherry was still whole, I thought to try some things…First, a mortice was mark...

shop jigs/furniture/fixtures #10: wall bench #4 (drawer fronts installed and a bit more)

10-02-2014 02:03 AM by Tugboater78 | 0 comments »

Got up fairly early this mornin. After a few cups of coffee and a shower I went out to the shop. I had cut, routed some roundovers, and stained/finished the drawer fronts yesterday. Was waiting for electrical inspector to stop by and give the thumbs up on my new service connection on the house (he didn’t show up till 4:30pm though said he would be there in the morning) I am all good on that, now I just gotta take the paperwork to utility company and coordinate a switch. Left bank...

OK, The French Veneer (at last) #2: Beginnings

10-02-2014 01:07 AM by shipwright | 10 comments »

I put a lot of thought into what the first project would be for my fine sawn veneer before I decided on this particular idea. I would have to say there was also a lot of “putting it off” involved but once the project had been chosen the next question was where to start. I wanted the piece to have interest in both decoration and in function (hence the cantilevered drawers) so before anything else I had to make sure the mechanics were sound. Here are a few shots of the hinge comp...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1413: Welcome October!

10-01-2014 12:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It is hard to believe that we are beginning a new month already! September seemed to pass by so quickly, and before we know it, we will be into the holiday season. It has been such a busy month for us here, and I am sure that is why the time flew by so fast. It seems that I have been going non-stop and one day just bleeds into the next. I am not complaining at all though, as I have been very happy that there have been so many opportunities ahead. After the closing of the magazine, I must...

Flat Panel Wainscoting #1: It's going in the Dining Room

10-01-2014 04:18 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 12 comments »

Posted a few pics of this dining room remake in other forums here on LJs, decided on a separate blog series to give others an idea or two on what’s possible. There are three other rooms in the house done up with wainscoting, but none of those are this specific style; for those I used T&G beadboard (labor intensive, lots of wood used) on one and 4’ panel’d sheets of beadboard on the other two. Went surfing on the TOH website and found a number of styles compared side-by-s...
