My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1831: The Process

04-21-2017 12:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Capers #8: Things I Never Noticed

MASSIVE 35" Disston Miter Saw Restoration

04-20-2017 01:01 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I then spent some time cleaning the saw up and polishing the saw nuts. I then went and sharpened to saw crosscut. Subscribe for more videos!

I bought myself 4 rolls of 220 grit, 7 rolls of 100 grit, and 4 rolls of 60 grit. The sander comes with 80 grit installed. I appreciate any help.

04-19-2017 02:02 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

We come to the part that I am nervous about. Building drawers intimidate me. I probably over think it. First I make a prototype. Then, once I get that fitting, I use it for a pattern and set up jig for the rest of them. View on YouTube
