"Perfectly Flat" Dados?

09-15-2010 03:01 AM by knotscott | 11 comments »

This borders on a “knitpick” IMO, but for the sake of clarity and truth in advertising, I think it deserves to be addressed. I frequently read phrases like “perfectly flat bottoms” and “absolutely perfect” in regards to grooves and dados cut from stacked dado sets. No doubt, some are better than others, and the very best are really, really good, but nearly all the stacked dado sets I know of use beveled teeth on the outside cutters to help minimize tearout (Freud, Forrest,...

Not quite in the workshop... #26: Chillin out, and giving my back some time to rest.

09-15-2010 12:51 AM by dbhost | 3 comments »

Those that follow my Journey Into The Workshop blog series no doubt have heard me repeatedly lament about my back as of late. I have given my overworked back muscles way more than they bargained for, well since I returned from Oregon in very early August. Nearly on a nightly basis, and almost all day on each weekend day I have been building, cleaning, painting, or demolishing something around the house, and the workshop trying to finish getting both my home, and my workshop in order. Now f...

Revamping my Delta Contractor Saw #10: The Core of the New Extension Table

09-14-2010 11:38 PM by Mark Colan | 6 comments »

The Delta Contractors Saw came with a melamine table top, sized about 27×32”, to support work on the right side of the blade. The Unifence attached to it. This table top has gotten beaten up with use, particularly because I formerly did not have a good workbench and it got misused, so I have replaced it a couple of times, and the current one is in only fair condition. The Incra fence has provisions for using a fence, though as noted in an earlier blog entry, you add the table ...

Evolution of a Shop #13: Tool board over workbench

09-14-2010 05:07 PM by Cory | 12 comments »

I’ve never really been a big fan of pegboard, but it’s incredibly functional and cheap. So, like most shops, mine has some pegboard in it. I really wanted to do something different, though, to hold my tools over my workbench. I was watching some old Wood Whisperer videos the other day and saw his french cleat system on a piece of plywood. Then, I was looking through this web site: http://benchmark.20m.com/index.html and saw his french cleat system throughout his shop. IR...

Setting Up To Carve a Gunstock.

09-14-2010 04:34 PM by HalDougherty | 17 comments »

The first thing I do is to set up two lasers to position a center line from the center of the rear stock holder to the point of the dead center at the top of the stock. Then check spacing from the stylus and the cutter. I use a 1/8” cutter & stylus and make sure it’s centered in the laser beam from one end to the other. Tiny missalignments will show up so they can be corrected..

Owning your own business (Post #1)

09-14-2010 04:03 PM by nate22 | 9 comments »

Owning your own business is fun but it takes a lot of work and staying commited to it. I started my business two and a half years ago and I just started getting really busy about seven months ago. One thing I have learned is you have to make what is selling even if you don’t build it or like to. Because when I started my business I was making livingroom furniture well that wasn’t selling for me, so I decided at the beginning of this year that I would start making bed frames esp...

Resurrecting my very woodworking related computer

09-14-2010 02:41 PM by Don Butler | 12 comments »

A few days ago we had a disaster.NO, I mean a DISASTER.Well, our house wasn’t destroyed and nobody died, but it was terrible in another sense.Y’see, the computer I work on, here at my desk, is also the server for our little business LAN. So when my wife innocently opened an email from a good friend, Malware struck hard.And it was very sneakily malevolent. It changed all the extensions of file names ending with .exe and that halted almost everything. I couldn’t even change the extensions back ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #103: Change of Seasons

09-14-2010 01:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

With the cooler weather arriving, it is a pleasure to see more and more people getting back to their shops and starting to work on projects again. As you regular readers know, summer is probably my least favorite season. I know that isn’t a popular opinion, but I have never been one to go along with the masses so I guess it is somewhat expected that I am not really fond of summer. From what I hear from my friends and customers in the States, it was for the most part a really brutal su...
