How to make a 22.5 degree cut.

10-08-2009 10:08 PM by Kjuly | 0 comments »

I posted this on my blog with pictures and wanted to share with LJ. The following is a copy of the text.There are pictures of the table under my projects. This post is in response to a question I received on the woodworking site The Wood Whisperer The question/challenge is how to cut the 22.5 degree angle for the top section of the table and have all eight pieces fit together. There are two factors that influence how well the joint will fit....

Wall Hung Console #8: Mortises and Tenons

10-08-2009 08:12 PM by captkerk | 3 comments »

I got a little work done on the console which was to cut the mortises in the three brackets and the tenons in the aprons and mounting board. All the tenons fit with a snug slip-fit. In the dry assembly run I did notice that the shoulders of the tenons could fit more precisely, so a little more chisel work is in order. Once I’m satisfied with the fit of the tenons, I will start on doing the purpleheart inlays. I’m planning to rout a groove on the end...

The Workshop #2: Setup (continued)

10-08-2009 07:03 PM by efsavage | 2 comments »

The Bench Dog 40-001 router table is a fantastic piece. It came with a few pieces of nice (baltic birch?) plywood, and about 50 million screws and bolts and other doodads. It was actually fun to set up, it was more like building a model than actual work. I got Bosch 1617EVS as a dedicated router for this table. So far it seems great. Typical solid Bosch contruction. It’s actually not as loud as I expected it would be. The router mounted to the table pretty painlessly, no drill...

A journey into the workshop. #19: Getting nothing done at all... Frustrating night...

10-08-2009 04:36 PM by dbhost | 4 comments »

Between LOML calling and keeping me on the phone. (She was at the hospital with her brother, long story, nothing to panic about though…) and my work phone paging me all night long over stuff that didn’t have to do with me… I never got the chance to get out into the shop last night for more than 5 minutes. I did manage to dig out 4 boxes of tiles that don’t match anything in my house that were sitting on one of the shelves. And about 4 gallons of Ace Bone White paint...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #12: Reorganizing and the Domino Effect

10-08-2009 04:13 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 18 comments »

It Just Won’t Stop! I tore out some double doors at the end of the shop that I never use, I need the wall space to hang my clamps. I figure that since I started doing this little reorganization I might as well finish it. I usually bite things off a couple days at a time and then wish that I had finished or done more. There never seems to be a convenient time to interrupt my work schedule for improving shop conditions, but the payoff is always big when it comes to improved work fl...

Beads Box #4: Mild Cutting, Doors part, Dadoes, and rabbets

10-08-2009 03:28 PM by PurpLev | 12 comments »

I’ve had this project on the back burner (literally- it was standing in the back on the burner…) for a long time (just click on the “Previous blog entry” and you’ll see what I mean). and I think it’s due to the fact I have high expectations out of this project, that sometimes I feel are a bit over my capabilities and abilities at this day and age. But… I finally got some courage, and cut the carcass down so I can pick up on this project, and move o...

is this any good for a veneer press??

10-08-2009 06:39 AM by RBWoodworker | 1 comment »

I have an opportunity to get a good, high CFM vacuum pump for 100 bucks but I want to make sure it will work well with a vacuum press that I want to make for veneering.. it’s an Orion dry pump AT1100 which according to the owner is well over 10 CFM’s, but it won’t do me a hill of beans if it isn’t a good choice for veneering.. if anyone here at Lumberjocks know’s anything about these types of pumps or good pumps for a veneer press..Please let me know.. I canR...
