This be the third pattern in the series And my variation on #3 just by rearranging the strips. Remember these are still only dry fit..and wet to show the color and grain… I have however done most of the glue ups.. actually all the glue ups and most of the sanding.. first on the drumsander then on the linisher belt and routed all the edges as well as the finger grip recesses…I can’t wait to finish the final sanding with a ROS… maybe up to 240 grit and l...

In saving space, making one piece out of two functions will be a nice way of making tailored furnitures. There are lots of variation, a two piece sets and some are built separately and screwed together. This project started after I built the Agnes’ shelve blogged on first part. The design came in due to the need of storing hutch and a display shelve. There are some challenges such as. 1. The design requirementsI have a very limited space… 40 inches width x 6 1/2 ft high.

Rebuilding a vintage Craftsman Table Saw 113.29920 #3: Cleanup and motor breakdown

10-11-2010 05:58 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 3 comments »

Ok guys there are some pictures of the table top before and after my cleaning session. Aside from that, most all of the small parts have been Evaporusted. The top is not as nice as I want it, but I’ll get it there eventually. See the pictures here.... Now to the dilemma. I broke down the motor and was rather frightened at what I found. The motor was in great need of cleaning as I dumped almost 2 cups of sawdust out of it without any scrubbing. For some reason impacted sa...

Heart shape box

10-11-2010 03:27 AM by Bearpaw | 4 comments »

Over the years I have given this box to give to teachers that have helped my daughter, later to raise money for mission trips, and now to people that have made a difference in my life. Like the doctor that preformed the 6 heart by-passes and the nurse that helped me through the recovery room that night. The pattern comes from an old issue of American Woodworker. I “carve” the top with a sanding disk chucked into my drill press. I let the grain of the wood dictate the shape of the “vain...

Torque WorkCentre #4: Officially Up and Running

10-11-2010 01:21 AM by dustbunny | 18 comments »

She is all aligned X, Y, and Z.It wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be to align.I was dragging my feet because I don’t enjoy calibrating machinery.Alignment was simple and only took me less than 45 minutes. The table top is two sheets of MDF stacked. I left the lower one 8 ft and cut the upper one to the length of the bed 79” and butted countertop to it over the cabinet.I routed the lower table with slots to fit the width of a carriage bolt head with a washer....

Tapered Display Tower - beetle-kill pine #5: False tenons (Mahogany) with wedges (beetle-kill pine) ?

10-11-2010 01:00 AM by NBeener | 21 comments »

Today, I took some scrap African Mahogany (what a nice thing to have. It’s like saying you have “traveler’s checks left over from your vacation !”), and re-did the false tenons for the display tower. Rather than use templates, I just laid everything out on the stock, took two 3/8” passes with the dado stack, then ripped to length, cut the bottom at 3*, cut out the tenons, routed the chamfer, and lightly sanded the notches. Here’s the result: N...

10-11-2010 12:36 AM by Bluepine38 | 1 comment »

When we bought this house it had an old cast iron fireplace on a big rock hearth backed by a rock wall witha halfwall on the right side. I got tired of the monstrosity and tore it out, without taking any pictures of it.The removal included taking out the old stove pipe through the attic and roof that leaked every time it rainedand replacing it with a new one that exited through the side of the house. I do not have and pictures of thedestruction or construction, but here is the finished prod...

Old Sears Craftsman Shaper

10-10-2010 11:59 PM by Bluepine38 | 4 comments »

I found this Sears Craftsman Shaper Model No. 103.23920 at a garage sale for $50.00. My first thought was,even if I can not fix it the 1 HP motor is worth more than that on Ebay. It was made for Sears by the King-Seeley Corp about 1953 and came complete with rust and 5 sets of cutter heads that needed sharpening. The shaper was made to use either a 1/2 or 3/4 HP electric motor, the original misguided owner decided to makeit heavy duty by using a 1 HP motor. The base of the motor was...
