Post and Panel Construction System #1: What Is It?

07-08-2010 08:02 AM by Pete Tevonian | 1 comment »

The Post and Panel System started with the desire to let my son build cool castles out of blocks. But I didn’t like that regular blocks fall down so easily. A little kid is going to have a hard time protecting his castle from barbarians, pets and siblings if the only things he can use are gravity and friction! So, unlike regular old blocks, the posts and panels in this set lock together. In minutes, without any instructions, your kids (or, be honest, you) can create complex and s...

four station desk #3: Finished pictures, was just delivered.

Here you see my four station desk inside the medical clinic, where it now reduced. I used Minwax special Walnut stain before a beautiful lacquer finish was applied by my friend and teacher, Mr. Lehman. Thanks to Mr. Lehman I was able to supply my client a set of desks with a first rate durable finish.

four station desk #2: more progress

07-08-2010 06:02 AM by 559dustdesigns | 2 comments »

The desks are now assembled and I started fabricating the drawer fronts and doors. After realizing I made the doors wrong and couldn’t use the concealed hinges that I wanted, I made another set.These pictures show some in progress shots of what I did to accommodate the hinges I have. The parts are marked and ready for drilling for the hinge cups. I used my General drill guide a lot on this project. Most of the drawer boxes are finished and I am now in the middle...

Looking for saw fence advice

07-08-2010 04:48 AM by RonPeters | 10 comments »

Hi all, my first blog/post I have a Craftsman 10” contractor’s table saw circa 1970s that needs a better fence. The stock fence just isn’t true. I’ve been looking at all kinds of them out there. Prices range from $150 to $400+. Anyone have a recommendation? I don’t do a lot of cutting, but if I had a better fence I might. I’m going to build an armoire for the living room and accuracy would be necessary. What about the saw itself? I install...

New Workshop #1: Getting Started

07-08-2010 04:11 AM by jcwalleye | 7 comments »

Having retired some 18 months ago, I’ve been picking up some woodworking skills and tools and it’s obvious that you can never have enough of either, but particularly of the skills. I’ve got a 11×24 shop that has served me fairly well until I bought a hybrid table saw. Now, to do anything I drag one tool out of the way and drag the next one into place. It’s boring work that I’ve put up with till a friend said ‘Why don’t you build a bigger shop?...

Notes from the workday. #1: July 7th, 2010 Daily progress

07-08-2010 04:11 AM by vicrider | 1 comment »

Hello everyone, This is my first attempt at blogging and I want to thank LumberJocks for making this effort possible. I have really enjoyed the projects, comments, and talent of the people on this site. I have had lots of positive response to the walnut tables I finished last month (my first project posted on LJ). A woodworker friend wants a piece to display in his showroom. Most of the woodwork he has is rustic and he would like to show some more refined pieces. Today I bought enoug...

The Splined Mitre Joint

07-08-2010 03:51 AM by Bob Simmons | 7 comments »

The Splined Mitre Joint is a decorative yet very strong joint. The addition of the spline and glue makes a regular mitre joint all the more stronger while aiding in keeping the mitre nice and tight. By using a contrasting wood the woodworker can achieve a very distinctive appearance at the joint. This woodworking video tutorial shows how the spline mitre joint is made using a woodworking jig on the tablesaw. For more information.visit…

I picked up my old craftsman bandsaw today. I was talking to my realtor last week and he knew I did wood work. He told me about this saw that was in his basement and he has no use for it.I asked a few questions and said I would come and look at it. Today I went, it is an older craftsman from the 60-70’s. When I asked how much he wanted. TAKE IT get , thanks for getting it out of here. I REALLY ENJOY those prices. !I now have 2 bandsaws. Both too small for what I want to do, but “O...
