Curly maple leg vice for English "Nicholson" bench.

11-26-2010 11:05 AM by Matt Stauffer | 25 comments »

I’ve been working on this bench for I guess 2 months now on my days off. It’s southern yellow pine. I dug around the shelf for at least an hour picking out boards at Home Depot, but could not find any without knots. Not one. Must be an Alabama thing. I decided that a wood screw was in order for my phantom vintage bench, and found one at Lake Erie Toolworks. I didn’t want to invest so much into a vice screw, but I could not find a vintage screwbox on e...

Dumb and Dusty

11-26-2010 06:32 AM by wichle | 2 comments »

We have been away for a few weeks having been working on a condominium hideaway. No shop so I’ve been limited to re-mounting existing cabinets that were falling down, putting sliding shelves in the low kitchen cabinets, replacing old electrical outlets with grounding outlets. Organizing storage, including moderate tool storage etc etc. I’ll sounl like Brian Meeks if I say that Mr. Saw Stop was happy to see me when we got back but then! After eating Thanksgiving dinner at son...

Extremely Average #298: It Fits

11-26-2010 05:56 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello LJ’s, It has been a long time since I had a bunch of photos about woodworking. Tonight I did a much better job. The quest today, was to build a template to cut the groove for the drawer bottom, for the front and back. I love learning new things and my plan worked really well. When I assembeled the drawer, it fit together really snugly, and I was happy. Brian

Old tools- Do you refinish or use as is?

11-26-2010 04:58 AM by twokidsnosleep | 9 comments »

Like some opinions and input form LJersI bought a couple of bevel gauges on e-bay for cheap. They both are fine and work perfectly, but show their age and are a bit grimy.So my question is should I take them apart and refinish the wood, polish up the brass or just leave them?Do you use old beauties as is or keep them shiny?I am a little torn as what to do as I see both the history of old things and the beauty of all polished up Like to know what you think,Scott

Revamping my Delta Contractor Saw #15: Where should I mount the router on my table saw?

11-26-2010 04:39 AM by Mark Colan | 7 comments »

This has been a problem I have been thinking about for months. I would have a better idea of how to build the best router table if I had used a router table before. My original thought was to put it on the far right side of the extension table. It would be very accessible there. The downside: the whole fence system needs to be removed, rotated 180 degrees, and set into place… every time I want to switch from router to table saw. I decided this is not convenient enough, and abando...

A day of giving thanks.

11-26-2010 04:08 AM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

As we look all that has transpired throughout the day, the eating, the drinking, watching while our team looses to the other guys, have we displayed a heart of thanksgiving? No doubt many of us have celebrated this day with family and friends, some may not be so fortunate. Let us be encouraged to take a moment to be thankful for one another. I’ve only been a part of LJs for a short time and it is clear to me that LJs is a family. I personnaly have been blessed by many of you, I in ...

A Little Cabinetree #6: Some Pitfalls in the Process

11-26-2010 04:06 AM by shipwright | 14 comments »

I do hope that some of you will take up the challenge and improve this technique as I think it has some real potential to develop into an interesting tool for enhancing many different works. With that in mind I will try to illustrate a couple of the pitfalls inherent in the process. I discovered them in the usual way. The front (doors) of the cabinet was my “guinea pig” for testing the marquetry / dye technique prior to trying the more difficult top so both of the problems that...
