While the rest of the world is going forward I seem to be going in the other direction, ie; wooden hinges. I bought a book from FWW back in 1998 showing router projects and techniques culled from past magazine articles. There was an article there by Rob Cosman.which included a method of making wooden hinges. This is the type of hinge in question shown on my box below. ““ ““ Main Problems producing a hinge using Rob Cosman’s method In Cosman’s a...
So, yesterday while slabbing some Eucalyptus where is was felled in town, our local feller stopped by to ask if I wanted some log sections of a tree they had just felled. When I asked what it was he didn’t know, but promised to fine out from one of our local tree experts. True to his word, he drove by half an hour later and told me it was New Zealand Kauri Pine. I knew nothing about it, but his best chainsaw man told me it was quite hard, and the sample he had with him looked quite...
In this episode I talk about some tablesaw accessories.
Here is what I have so far on the window shelving. Had to stop to get TS fixed. The switch went out on it. The pics are of 6ft 1×6 select pine and 1/2 inch pine from Johnson’s workebench.I was able to set up and test fit the dados. I will have my TS back by next tuesday. So this is what I have done. The only thing I have not taken a pic of yet is the actual dados that I have already cut. Hope this helps. BTW I am going through withdrawls without the TS.
for all those that missed it, or those that didn’t know about the article. here’s a link to Popular woodworking published article where George R. Walker shows a very simple and effective technique to design graduated drawers arrangement: http://www.popularwoodworking.com/article/graduated_drawers_woodworking_design/ Peace
Jan 26/10My new safety glasses finally came in. Now all I have to do is get used to the bifocals and create my Awards entry in the next few days. Pressure is on.

This is my first project since joining the site, and my second woodworking project overall. Last week, I completed the Kreg workbench so I’d have an area to build other projects on. After seeing the shoerack built by mckenziedrums here: _http://lumberjocks.com/projects/26304_ I liked the project so well, I thought I’d try to closely reproduce it, with a few changes of my own. I didn’t have, nor did I want to purchase any curly maple. I also just picked up a couple c...
I found a pretty decent deal on CL for me at least. I picked up an old Delta Rockwell lathe from a gentleman on there. Model # 62-610 and it came with all the original tool rests and I mean all of them….Even got a book “getting the most from your lathe” No. 4703 by Delta copyright 1954. Also came with the original tools Delta Rockwell Catalog No. 130: 1” skew, 1/2” skew, 3/4” gouge, 1/2” gouge, 1/4” gouge, 1/4” parting tool, 1/2” ro...
Finally got the fence and was able to model it out last night. I wish I had the opportunity to do this earlier, or at least have this model before I cut the hole in my router table top for the router plate as based on this fence I would have liked to put it 2.5” more to the front. but. 2.5” is not that critical, and I could move the fence backwards if needed. hope this can help someone else: this is not a production model, but just a model to help visualize and design a ro...
