Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw #22: Unisaw Update

10-16-2009 06:52 PM by Bothus | 4 comments »

Well it says that it’s been 8 days since my last Unisaw post but that can’t be right because it seems like for-friggin’-ever! Nothing I gotta focus, my brain, not the camera. I finally ordered the touch up paint for my Unisaw. Hopefully it will be here next week. Hopefully it will be the correct color. If not, I guess I will have to have it mixed and buy a sprayer. Side note: I was adding tags to this post and under “Skill” I couldn’t find a tag...

Site Updates

10-16-2009 06:02 PM by Martin Sojka | 33 comments »

Long time, no post… anyways I’d like to keep you updated about the latest updates on the site. Support and maintenance is taking more and more time because your activity grows leaps and bounds so these upgrades are not huge nor revolutionary. Anyways I’m sure that you’ll find them interesting because most of them were requested multiple times in the past. So here they are: New Events Calendar features a monthly view of all important LJ picnics and meetings. These ...

Craftsman Professional Universal Band Saw Fence. (functional, but certainly NOT great, planning on picking up some small HF C clamps to help it out. The clamps this thing somes with are garbage.) #3. Harbor Freight riser block kit. Priceless add on for this saw. #4. Accura Micro Adjustable Roller Bea...

Working on a new project

10-16-2009 02:58 PM by Bill | 7 comments »

I have not been on Lumberjocks for awhile, but I still check in from time to time. I am currently working on a new project – building a tiny trailer house. I was planning on making a blog, but not done so yet. I debated whether to put a blog here, or on HomeRefurbers.com. Instead, I have been keeping picture updates on my facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/profile.php?id=1703560147&ref=name . The tiny trailer house is based on the free plans from tinyhous...

Your Not So Ordinary Platform #1: The Plan

10-16-2009 01:52 PM by Chris Davis | 1 comment »

I will be making two platform beds for a single client. One will have a very large headboard and the other will not. Both will have a set of cabinets lining the side. This is what’s not so ordinary for platform bed. These cabinets will set on top of the platform. So for a full size bed I’ll be making this one about 75”wide. This platform will have a ledge around the mattress extending about 2 ½”. It will also e a 4 post design with all inner edges curved inward a little. The fini...

Speakers

10-16-2009 04:29 AM by bunkie | 0 comments »

I’ve been building speakers for most of my life. It’s what led me into woodworking. Sadly, I don’t have a lot to show for it. I’ve either sold or given away every set I’ve ever built with only one exception, the set I’m currently running. Even worse, from a woodworking perspective, they’re pretty sad. Made entirely of MDF and finished with rattle-can stone finish paint, they aren’t pretty. I’m planning to rectify this situation. My next...
