Weekend Work A Coming!!!

03-11-2011 05:45 AM by GreenNewbie | 1 comment »

Excited about this weekend. I’m going to start working on making two of the Woodsmith Shop Peg Board storage shelf/cabinet. But, the more exciting part is hooking up my dust collector to some tools for the first time. I know my wife will be a lot happier with most of the saw dust not on everything in the garage :) Also, the other day I decided that I will be making both of my daughters a dresser. Should be a lot of fun to design and build!!!

Kreg Precision Fence on Rikon 14" Deluxe Bandsaw

03-11-2011 05:00 AM by GregD | 6 comments »

I thought someone might like to see how I attached a Kreg Precision Fence to my Rikon 14” Deluxe Bandsaw. The Kreg fence rail bolts to the infeed edge of the table. Unfortuantely, on the Rikon the slot for changing the blade comes out to the infeed edge of the table and is blocked by the Kreg fence rail. Rather than attach the rail directly to the table, I attached it to a length of 1-1/2” x 1/8” extruded aluminum angle. The extruded aluminum is then attached to the...

Another load of mesquite logs

03-10-2011 09:27 PM by Mesquiteman | 4 comments »

Here is the most recent load of logs that I bought. They are all velvet mesquite from the north west side of Tucson. Nothing big, most of the logs are 4-6 feet long 12-14 inches wide. I cut one of the logs right when I got to my mill to see the color of the wood. Mesquite color is usually different depending on the soil the tree came from. As you can see from the picture these logs will yield some red mesquite.

Restoring Hand Planes.. My methods #8: Complete restore of my Stanley #5 Jack Plane w finished pics

03-10-2011 08:47 PM by Dan | 6 comments »

Here is yet another one of my plane restorations. I don’t have a before picture of this plane because it is actually a mix of 3 different Stanley jack planes. I was restoring 3 of them at the same time and I mixed and matched the parts on them. I believe this one to be a type 11. The only thing to note about the restoration of this one thats different from the others I posted is that I did my first handle repair. The Rosewood handle on this plane was broke in two pieces when I got it...

The Making of a Walnut Bowl/Tray

03-10-2011 08:10 PM by cranesgonewild | 28 comments »

I was visiting my parents over the Christmas holidays, when I noticed a plastic tray full of candy on the coffee table. My mom told me she got it from the dollar store. She also told me that she loves this bowl because of the divided trays.So, being the woodworker that I am. I decided that I was going to make one out of wood. Without anyone knowing, I took measurements. I do own the CMT bowl and tray bit, and it does come with a template for making this tray. However, the overall size of that...
