Extremely Average #56: No Surprises

02-27-2010 03:46 AM by Ecocandle | 16 comments »

The timer on my iphone was set to 16 minutes. I hit start and it began counting down. My belt sander went to work on the piece of walnut. Slowly it began to remove change the board’s face from rough cut to a smooth surface. I focused on even strokes back and forth and let it do the work. When the deep cuts were mostly gone, with seven minutes remaining, I switched to my mouse sander. The mouse sander did a nice job with various grits for the remaining 7 minutes. The follow three ...

triton 2 1/4 hp rounter templace guide kit

02-27-2010 01:41 AM by rowan | 2 comments »

There’s no such thing.! You need to buy the kit for the larger Triton router and then call HTC (new Triton owner) and ask them for the adapter bushing that lets you not have to mount the oversized base plate that comes with the guide kit. Don’t let them charge you for this. They shoud have provided it in the kit or, better yet, make a kit that’s designed for the 2 1/4 router. Just a nuisance. AND here’s another problem with the template guide setup in general: W...

First Rehab - The Disston Backsaw

02-27-2010 01:06 AM by jcontract | 3 comments »

I’m headed to the Philadelphia Furniture Workshop next weekend to take a class on Handcut Dovetails. The first day, we practice saw sharpening. So, rather than practice on one of the “good” saws, I found an old Disston that was in need of some serious help. I figured what’s the worse that can happen. So here she is: Really rusty for sure, but surprisingly the handle is in good shape, and the saw plate is straight as well. I might just be able to get a working sa...

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #5: Laminating Seat Back and Back Rest

02-27-2010 01:03 AM by sras | 7 comments »

Once I have my strips sanded to thickness, I can cut them and get the five pieces I need for gluing. I have enough material for six so I’ll have a strip left over. There are a couple of cases where I ended up with damage on part of a strip and that sixth piece was nice to have. First, I sort my six long strips and find which end I want to have in the final part. I look for color, grain direction and any character that I might want to have on the outer faces. Then I mark for cutting. ...
