DeWalt 735 sprocket blues - Grizzly solution!

02-24-2011 12:36 PM by poppatom | 6 comments »

The other day I started planing down some ash I had just got fresh from the sawmill. About half way through the process my planer made a scary sound but quit before I could get to the switch to shut it off. My thinking was the it had sucked up a large piece of wood but cleared itself so I began to run another piece of wood through. That’s when I discovered my in feed roller wasn’t turning!After pulling the side covers off and found that one of the sprockets on the gear side had sh...

A Few Boxes Under Contruction

02-24-2011 09:11 AM by rkoorman | 1 comment »

Hello LJ’s Last weekend I started on some small boxes, just a bit of fun. These projects are a nice way to try out new ideas and see if they work. The first serie’s are made from walnut with a top of pau amarello with maple and walnut veneer. The second attempt is based on the stringbox-design i saw on LJ. This is my first attempt and this kind of box making. The body is wenge and the veneer is maple. I’ll try and post some more pictures when it’s ...

02-24-2011 06:17 AM by William | 9 comments »

First things first today, I had to finish cutting the lower side gable trim.Here’s a view of the side gable trim pieces in place.Here’s the front side gable trim. Also, this is where my day started getting uh, umm, interesting. I think that’s a good description of it.I cut these two pieces, but for some reason they were too short. It took a lot of head scratching for me to figure out how and why. When I done the roof, I didn’t follow the plans. Since I had built this b...

Making a CNC Router #1: Part 1: Assembly

02-24-2011 05:29 AM by KylesWoodworking | 30 comments »

Well I just turned 17 years old today, February 23, 2011, and I have always wanted to make a CNC router. So for my birthday, I asked my dad to get me a CNC hardware and plans kit from Then I went to Lowes and the Home Depot to get a sheet of MDF, aluminum angles, threaded rods, and various other items I needed to make the machine. So the whole weekend last week, I’ve been working on cutting all the parts I need and then drilling all the holes in the pieces. Here is...

I get excited when I see box trucks come down over the hill at the yard. They’re loaded with crates usualy. This time was a framed crate with decking for a boat that’s being worked on. I saw board feet just waiting to be salvaged. Quite a bit of pine and some spruce. With very few knots. Last time was all rough 1×4 oak. As you can see I try to reuse quite a bit. I finaly invested in some rails and brackets to help organize a little better.

Transporting donated lumber

02-24-2011 05:18 AM by rustfever | 7 comments »

I have donated lumber to Indio High School wood shop. The wood shop program is suffering from the current budget problems to all of California. I have about about 2,000 bd ft of various ‘Urban Forest’ exotic & domestic lumber to get delivered. This load will weigh 5,000 to 6,000 lbs. Most wood is less than 8’ in length. I will bundle into sizes that can be comfortably loaded on the shipper’s truck or trailer. I need to find some way to get some or all of ...

Making the garage a shop #4: Nothing picture worthy, but more movement forward.

02-24-2011 04:42 AM by Shawn K. | 3 comments »

The last few days have been exceptional as far as moving forward on the shop. Monday saw more cleaning, and organization, getting the last bit of organization to be done to the lathe bench. I have a concrete floor in the garage apparently. The Orange BORG yielded storage bins, electric supplies for two 20 amp circuits, and the expansion of my 15 amp legs for lights, etc. Apparently my new table saw will work on 15amps, so I’m not too hurried to get that taken care of. Tuesday...

What's in your shop? #1: Virtual Bookshop

02-24-2011 03:51 AM by kowtow | 5 comments »

I was thinking today, as I was undressing my recent Jet 14” bandsaw for some TLC about the indispensable books on my book shelf. These are books that I have and have used and can’t imagine being without. Here is my list, in no particular order: George Nakashima, “The Soul of a Tree” Aldren Watson, “Hand Tools: Their Ways and Workings” Mark Duginske, “Mastering Woodworking Machines” USDA, “Encyclopedia of Wood” Terrie Noll, ...
