09-15-2009 08:09 PM by Myron Wooley | 3 comments »

I’ve had several good interviews, but no offers yet. Something has to give- being broke is a new experience, and not one that I care for.

!http://(Mortise 2)!I was at a local joinery the other day so I decided to pick up so lumber for the lamp table project I was thinking of doing. I picked up some 2×2 american white oak. I went home that day and cut the oak down to 4 18inch lenghts for the legs. I marked the mortises out using a mortise gauge and decided to route the mortises out as i have never tried this method before. ( I’m a hand tool guy ) For this I though I’d go out ant treat my self to a new router bi...

A journey into the workshop. #5: Improvements, mistakes, and where did that blood come from?

09-15-2009 04:02 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

I can’t say enough good about how well the Thien separator on my dust collector is working. I tried avoiding building a pre separator to keep from taking up precious shop space. I can honestly say I am glad I finally opted to do it. I tired quickly from constantly emptying the lower bag from my DC with the Thien Baffle, so although my filter was staying clean, I was every other day, and sometimes once an hour pulling the lower bag from this thing, which can be a real chore! I continu...

Now the video goes; ahora si funciona el video.

09-15-2009 11:05 AM by xylosapiens | 6 comments »

The change in progress: towards a “new end”. Sorry, I donĀ“t know what the problem was, but here you have the video working. I checked it. As I told you I had to do some modifications in order to accomplish a “new” requirement of my client. The client decided to make a change: he need an access to the desk’s inside, when her products are exposed on the counter. After thinking about the possible solutions and having to keep the structural solidity, I dec...

random #28: Archival footage: Wood turning in Germany, 1926

09-15-2009 11:05 AM by Gary Fixler | 19 comments »

This video from 83 years ago follows a German woodworker as he selects a log half, cuts out a bowl blank on a large band saw, and then turns 3 separate parts to create a lidded bowl. It’s neat to feel such a kinship with a guy at his lathe some 13 years before his country would enter into WWII. I wonder if he made it to the war, and what he thought of it. There’s something a lot more tangible about this video than the still black and white photos of men with saws over their shoul...

Tablesaw #1: New Unisaw or Sawstop

09-15-2009 06:52 AM by Mike | 11 comments »

I had a chance to stop in today to the nearest store that carried the New Delta Unisaw. I looked it all over and was really impressed with this new saw. It looks like Delta did their homework on this one. Does anyone own the new Unisaw and if so how do you like it? I know it doesn’t have the brake system on it like the Sawstop. With the sawstop if you change blades, you will have to check the distance between the brake and the blade and then re-adjust it necessary. If I want Safe...
