Shop built Sliding table for Tablesaw #5: Adding the table to the BT's

11-26-2014 01:01 AM by Todd Swartwood | 2 comments »

The next step was the Oak table it is 2” thick X 13” wide and around 80” long. I started by selecting some oak that would easily rip into 2 3/8” strips. I think I had about 15 strips. I laminated the strips together and let it set overnight.I then planned the Piece down to 2” thick, jointed 1 edge and ripped the piece down to 13” and cleaned that edge up on the jointer.I then attached the table to the bridge on the BT with 8 1 1/2” screws from under t...

What to do with leftovers?

11-25-2014 06:49 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Had a few things leftover from the screen door build. Got to thinking about building SOMETHING out of them, just to get them out of the way. Then, I noticed where all the “ready Use” planes were sitting Even the smaller smoothers wer hanging out a bit. Had a 7” wide piece of pine. Laid the longest plane of the group on the plank. Needed to find an angle that it would sit at. Once that was found, a couple “sides” were cut out of the plank The...

Current Project #23: Guess What I'm Making Now

11-25-2014 06:40 PM by Dave Rutan | 18 comments »

Guess what I’m making now. All the parts are shown in the photo. The only hint I’ll give is that it’s by the request of my wife and it’s NOT a shop project. Any Guesses? I should be posting this project tomorrow during our snow event. (Unless of course we lose power.) EDIT: The dowel has not been cut yet. It’s a pointed skewer, also known as a poorboy’s 3/16 in. dowel. EDIT II: It’s a tripod mount for an ipod. See the project here: [link]

New Tools Added to the Shop #1: Rikon Bandsaw

11-25-2014 03:23 PM by sdrames | 3 comments »

Yesterday I ordered my Bandsaw, a Rikon 10-325. It was on sale at Sears for $799 plus an additional $40 off for using my sears card. Total price $759.99 delivered to my local Sears store. Next, I wanted the Rikon mobility kit. I found it at Woodcraft on sale for $49.99. The total package is $809.98. What a bargain. The money I saved will be buying the Porter Cable Drill Press at Lowes. You never really save $$ do you? It gets spent somewhere! I am a newbe so I will attempt a video o...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1450: More New Scroll Saw Designs!

11-25-2014 01:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

Today's post is going to be rather short (well – by my standards anyway!)  Both Keith and I are working very hard to get some more new designs to you for your holiday crafting. Keith just finished a beautiful new set of ornaments that are in his very popular filigree style. I believe he finished up the pattern last night and he should be making them available on the site sometime later today. I think they are just stunning: I also have been working on a couple of new sc...

Shop built Sliding table for Tablesaw #4: Sliding table almost finished

11-25-2014 01:01 PM by Todd Swartwood | 6 comments »

I made quite a bit of progress yesterday, thought I would show some of those pictures and than go back to the build process. After getting to this point I had to make a test cut, I was not disappointed. I used a 4 X 4 sheet of 1/4” mdfthe cut was so perfect no adjustment is necessary. I will get back to the build a little latter today. I must say I am like a guy in a tool store with excitement. All I have left to build is the outrigger, and will work on that t...

Workbench Build #10: More on the vise end cap

11-25-2014 06:00 AM by Mark Kornell | 3 comments »

Trimming the tenon cheeks and shoulders was fairly straightforward. The hardest part was flipping the 200 lb slab every 5 minutes… There were two issues. First, the tenon shoulders weren’t coplanar. In fact, they formed a kind of X. I doubt my collar jig was that bad, so I’m inclined to think there was a lot of flex in the circ saw, and probably exacerbated by the blade burning issue. The second issue is that the tenon depth was uneven. That’s a layout problem. ...

Barnsley Reproduction Build #6: Mortising Guide Block

11-25-2014 03:50 AM by stevo_wis | 2 comments »

I have 16- 45 degree mortises to chop in the frame and the stretcher for this table. I made this guide block and the photo below shows the half assembled block with the two angled guides that I will chisel to. The small block with the holes in it are a drill guide that I will use to drill out waste before chiseling. That guide will be slipped into the block loosely and after drilling it can be pulled out for chisel work. I am hoping that the drill guide holds up but I have a buddy who sai...

Vega PRO 50 Table Saw Fence

11-25-2014 02:49 AM by Kurt T. Kneller | 2 comments »

I just ordered the Vega PRO 50 Table Saw Fence System for my rigid table saw. I have been wanting a new, better fence for years. The factory fence always gave me headaches. No matter what I did it would not hold square to the blade and to make it worse it would creep over time towards the blade. After yesterday’s kick back, albeit not related to the fence, I had to address the risks of having another kick back and its potential outcome.I have been shopping around and researching fe...
