Table saw upgrade #3: Getting Closer?

10-27-2010 02:22 PM by dedalo | 3 comments »

After a while away from the garage, I could clean it up and make some room to keep with the table saw.I changed the incra postioner for a longer 25”, I cannot import the 32” because of shipping cost, but I think the 25” will do. I made a top out of some left overs and tried a “sandwich” of MDF and hardboard. I think the final one will be made out of fenolic multilaminate and hardboard. this top desnĀ“t have a hardwood frame becouse is just to try things out...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #146: Deep Thoughts for a Wednesday

10-27-2010 11:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I must really be getting old. I have an appointment to get my eyes checked this morning and I have been up since just past four being restless and thinking about it. It is now just after six and I have already gone through most of my mail and read the headlines and picked around here a bit. It didn’t help that it rained all night and I know that I will have to drive on the wet highway. Last April I had to go on the same road after the rain. The road is not in great repair and a...

Well wouldn’t ya know it – just when I need it most, my camera died so I had to try it with the Ipod – not so great.At any rate, this is not about me, it is about YOU and your SHOE. I have decided that the unveiling will be on Friday, Nov. 12th. so it’s time to finish your masterpiece.Considering the time zones are different, I will contact Martin about how you will post your photos ahead of that day so that they can be shown to your LJ buddies together. As f...

Building My Work Shop #4: So it's Decided

10-27-2010 06:02 AM by Crushgroovin | 11 comments »

Well I slept on it and talked about it with some friends. I am going to go with a Sawstop! Thanks to everyone who took a minute to add some insight. So now I get to start selling stuff on eBay and saving up for the big purchase. Only decision left is which model to go with. I have narrowed it down the the 1.75 HP Cabinet or the 3.0 HP cabinet. There is about a $600 difference between the two. Just not convinced I need a 3 HP saw. While I do bog down at times when using my Shopsmith, ...

Extremely Average #284: Half Blind Dovetail Success

10-27-2010 04:21 AM by Ecocandle | 8 comments »

Hello All, I felt terrible that I was unable to include a picture in yesterday’s blog. I cut another half blind, for the other side of the drawer and it turned out even better. So though I don’t have my Nikon, I used my iphone to take a photo for tonight’s blog. I also included a new poll widget on my blog. I want your opinion on how much I should charge for my Kindle version of Henry Wood. I will be keeping all the chapters up on the blog, so it will always be ava...

Not exactly a beautiful balloon. I am now on to the overhead. The mistakes made on the bottom still need to be fixed (cut and splice time is coming, VERY soon… I sort of forgot the drops for the jointer, and the floor sweep… I am a real ditz sometimes… It has been one of those projects where more parts were needed (where did all my 45 elbows go? I am somewhat wondering if I would have been better off with sweep elbows but oh well, what is done is done… As many as...

My quest for "Scary Sharp" #1: first time trying Scary Sharp

10-27-2010 01:20 AM by ic3ss | 18 comments »

I picked up this Miller’s Falls jackplane a few months ago for $35 at a garage sale. When I had a chance to take it apart and learn what I could find on hand planes, I kind of became enamored with them. Next thing I know, I inherited my Father-in-law’s Stanley Bedrock 604 smoother, and a week later I was bidding on an old Stanley No. 8. My wife is wondering where this all ends at this point. So I picked up a honing guide from Rockler, and a couple of free granite counter top cu...

Bamboo #1

10-27-2010 12:35 AM by WoodArtbyJR | 11 comments »

I was the fortunate recipient of a load of oak, ash, birch, maple, jatoba and some bamboo today. Thank you Eric. In this lot there were some strips of 1/2” & 3/4” thick solid core bamboo plywood. I know people sell bamboo cutting boards. So,I was thinking of cutting these into strips, stand them on edge, gluing them together and would end up with an end grain bamboo cutting board. Will this stuff glue easly? I know some woods don’t glue very well. Anyone have any...
