A Trip Into the Past…

04-29-2016 01:06 PM by handsawgeek | 3 comments »

Over the last year, the handsawgeek library has been greatly enhanced by the acquisition of two highly prized additions: Reproductions of the 1908 and 1927 Sears, Roebuck Catalogs. Many a pleasant evening has been spent perusing the pages of these two massive publications and being immersed in a perfect representation of what life might have been like in early 20th century America. Of course, being a hand tool woodworker, I was naturally drawn to the tool pages. The 1908 ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1727: Change

04-29-2016 12:49 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

There are a few things we can be certain of in this world. We have all heard the saying that "the only thing that we can be sure of is death and taxes", but as I get older, I find that something in that quote was left out. . . change.While some of us are uncomfortable with change, others thrive on it. I am not sure where my feelings lie in this equation, but I think they are somewhere in the middle.Change can be scary, as many times change is accompanied by the 'unknown'. Bu...

1400 Rebuild

04-29-2016 11:29 AM by Dennis Hill | 2 comments »

I’ve been using this DeWalt 1400 for several years after buying it off Craigslist for $70. Never did much to it other than adding a good blade, and a quick-and-dirty table/fence. This year I tore it apart. Reassembled with new motor bearings, some wiring, a major cleanup and repaint, and a table. All pretty standard except for the table. The table on some saws is relatively small which makes supporting long boards difficult. One solution is to build the saw into a bench. Anot...

DIY Tools | Woodworking #1: A Simple Stand for a Belt Sander

04-29-2016 09:07 AM by Humus Workshop | 0 comments »

First of all I want to thank many of you for the friendly welcom you have given me. And then I will be brief because actually it is a very small and simple project, but perhaps it can be useful for someone. You can watch the building process on this video: I still need a large stationary belt sander but is a future project for me. For now, this is a very simple solution to do and that has helped me a lot at time to work. The main thing this stand is that it ...

SawStop Assembly #4: Crosscut Sled for Large Panels Completed

04-29-2016 03:11 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

I should remember that there are no shortcuts to good work. It took longer to complete this sled build than it should have. I should have slowed down to get the countersinks drilled right the first time. Oh, well. The sled is done and is square. As I stated I used William Ng’s “5 Cuts to a Perfect Crosscut Sled”. It is just I took more than two sets of tests to get the front fence set to square. And so it goes.

Moved back to comunity where I was born. I counted over 15 old barns that are not being used. 5 of them on property that I once farmed. 2 weeks ago I approached the new landowner and asked if I could salvage these oldbarns and buildings. MOST commercial farmers are either burning them or pushing them into heap with DOZER. How sad is that. The new landowner was concerned I would take a few pieces and leave a mess ? i respected that. So i made an agreement to clean up the site. I said I do not ...
