As a new member here, I figured that I should share the project I am working on. I am by no means a luthier, or a highly skilled woodworker (yet). This is something that I have wanted to do for a long time. It started by felling an ash tree a few years ago and getting it milled into boards. Here I am in my large workshop planing the boards to thickness. Note the fancy chip/dust collector. Did my first bookmatch ever! Made a core from maple. glueing the back to the ...
1) A soft glue roller really works well.All I can say is I am impressed. This seemingly cheap roller spreads glue like paint. Just squirt glue out as normal and roll, up/down and left/right. The result is smooth and consistent throughout. Clean up is with soap and water. 2) A veneer saw is great but needs a tune up. I tried both cutting with a knife and a veneer saw. For now, the saw wins. I guess that’s why they still sell them every place veneer is sold. But mine needed a t...
I saw Blankman’s post on his mitre saw dust hood and thought I’d share my idea for a mitre saw station. This one hangs on the wall by a french cleat. I built it in three sections: left and right fence sections and the center saw section. The saw is the DeWalt 12” dual bevel model (not a slider.) I gave a lot of thought to whether the fence should be built on a platform or on the flat of the table. As you can see I chose the platform and I’m glad I did. I end ...
What’s happening in the shop for December 28, 2009 . Spray Wang’s Contempo murphy bed; Prep Grimm’s Oak Ross bed for finish, and maybe start on Batmobile Bed. For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at wwbeds.com or poggyskids.com. Watch us live:<div></div>
Cold and cloudy here. No kerosene for the shop til payday….. It’s gonna be a long week
Well, (drum roll please) here it is in place. If I get some time I take a video of it in action so you can see how it works, And I must say, it works pretty well. Saw locked down showing the dust port connection and the line cord grommet. And in the normal position.
As some of you may have read on my profile page, I have been wanting to get into woodworking for a long time now. I have been reading the magazines, watching the shows, and reading on forums for years. I had not been able to take the plunge due to budget and space limitations. Not to mention that when I was in the Navy, I didn’t want to have to worry about shipping my equipment every time I changed commands. It seems that no one ever really makes it through a government relocation w...
For an alarming length of time my two printers have been sitting on the floor in my home office. Ironically I’m about to move but nonetheless it is time to make some more satisfactory accommodation for them. I need space for a laser printer/copier and a photo printer along with storage space for the accompanying papers (piles of the stuff, all sorts of different types and sizes) and inks and toners and probably snacks for the little men that live inside to do the actual painting work. I...
I’m using the design from Wood Magazine Nov. 2009 as a guide. I found a solid core door for $5.00 on craigslist months ago that will be my bench top. Went to Menards to get the majority of my wood and some of the screws, casters, etc. The rest I will get from Ace when I need them. Got to use my new/used table saw. Put my new blade and zero clearance insert in it and cleaned up the table. Used my basic miter saw which isn’t big enough to cut some pieces in half. That is wh...
