Table from 200 year old re-claimed timber #2: Flattening The big top (not the circus kind)

04-27-2011 04:19 PM by Cory | 4 comments »

Muscling around this lumber hasn’t been easy. I need to have a perfectly flat top and bottom surface, and it’s too wide for my planer and jointer. I guess that means hand tools. I spent quite a bit of time using my Lee Valley low angle jack plane and my smoother to flatten both sides of the table top. I forgot to take pictures of the process (my arms woulda been too tired to hold up the camera anyway), but believe me it generated a lot of shavings. Here’s the top nice a...

Dewalt RAS Restoration #3: Motor and Motor Carriage

04-27-2011 04:19 PM by milbert | 3 comments »

Continuing to work up the saw I got the next big chunk of work done, the motor and the motor carriage. I followed pretty much the same process I used while doing the base. Like I said before, this saw is in great working shape and had been used daily by the gentleman that had it before. I both the motor bearings and track bearings had already been replaced. They were in good shape so all I needed to do was give them a thorough cleaning. I also hand painted the embossed DeWalt logo ‘k...

Wood Carved Jhoola

04-27-2011 03:56 PM by Dennis Zongker | 27 comments »

I just finished carving this unique indoor India swing bench, for a customer, it is also known as the Oonjal or Jhoola. This type of swing bench is not readily available without an overseas order. These types’ of wooden carved swings were used by Kings in their palaces and were considered a sign of royalty and are still considered even today. This type of furniture is a wooden swing with brass chains suspending it from the ceiling of the inside of their home. I glued together three plan...

Cummins Mack Bandsaw Cleaning and Tune Up #1: A new, to me, band saw

04-27-2011 02:02 PM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

Not long ago I made a blog entry inwhich I discussed the furture purchase of a band saw. Allow me to thank all those who added their insightful thoughts and suggestions. I would have liked to purchase a brand new band saw but that just wasn’t going to happen. So, back to Craig’s List I went. As I searched CL I came across a listing for a 14” Wood Band Saw. What I discovered is that the band saw was a Cummins Mack 14” band saw. The seller was asking $100. I cont...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #322: More Cutting

04-27-2011 01:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I want to start off by thanking everyone for their help on the oak pieces. I was glad to hear that the problem could be solved and worked on the two pieces yesterday. I made a bleach/water solution and put the board in the shower and sprayed them liberally with the mixture. I let it set for a bit, and then used a small scrub brush to work it in further. After a couple of hours, I rinsed them and allowed them to dry in a well-ventilated place. They really do look much better. By the ...

My first trade show

04-27-2011 05:12 AM by Wood_smith | 3 comments »

Although I had always intended my Kerry-All Pouches to be only a woodworking product, interest from farmers and machinery dealers has forced me to expand (in a good way).And since the regional farm mechanization show is only every two years and my budget is still small (this is still only a part-time business), I decided to do the farm show this year, and the regional building supply dealer show next winter.It was an incredible learning experience, and I’m guessing many (most?) trade sh...

Corner Tables - Take 2 #1: The beginning

04-27-2011 04:09 AM by Rick | 3 comments »

So here I go – making another set of tables. This time for my mother-in-law. She never really asks for anything for herself, so when she saw these and liked them, I couldn’t help but make a set. And this will satisfy a need she’s had in her living room for over a year. So, off I go – only this time it’s really only on weekends we don’t have softball… And for those who trudged through my last set with me through the blog, I’m doing this one...
