Old Delta Jointer Rebuild

10-10-2010 11:17 PM by Bluepine38 | 2 comments »

I found this Delta Jointer at a garage sale for $50.00 complete with rust. I only had a serial no. 2-561 on it, no Model number, but it resembled the model 37-307 (old style) 6” jointerwithout the stand. The plywood stand was in sad shape and the motor was enclosed by the plywood and wasso full of sawdust that no more would fit in. I replaced the electric motor and cutter head bearings and builtthis dust chute and steel base, cutting the steel with a special steel cutting skil...

The Nightstands Build #4: Slicing the veneers and making the half-blind dovetail drawers

10-10-2010 11:17 PM by Eric_S | 5 comments »

Life got in the way again and it took me a few weeks longer to get a lot more done with the nightstands. I hope to have the stands finished by first or second week of November now. All thats left are the tops and fitting the drawers. There are a few lessons I learned along the way, as always. 1) Don’t plane veneers thinner than 1/8” or you’re asking for trouble.2) Before chiseling half blind dovetail pins, its best to sweep up the surrounding area in case you chip a ...

Well It’s done! At a total of $130.00 in materials I’ve finished the project I wanted when I first saw it the March 2010 issue of Wood Magazine.It’s also the first project I’ve done working with Cherry. I really enjoyed it even though I found Cherry to be a bit unforgiving.The grain pattern through out the piece is really eye catching:

The grease box story #3: What is a grease box.

10-10-2010 10:04 PM by mafe | 21 comments »

The grease box story.Chapter three: What is a grease box. I admit this should perhaps have been the first post in this series…Medieval Latin pyxis, from Latin, box, from Greek, from pyxos box (shrub). First a list of the names I have met for this little fellow:Grease box, grease pot, tallow pot, lard pot, carpenters grease box, joiners grease pot.And these can be combined to even more versions, so do not get confused, it’s the same thing, except the trade of the user, or contend of the...

Quick Tip - Extending knife blade life

10-10-2010 07:32 PM by BritBoxmaker | 13 comments »

I use an Xacto Knife for veneer and fine cutting. The tip of the replacement blade wears out all too quickly This is the problem drawn for clarity The top two drawings show a side and top view of a new blade. The middle two show a worn blade (exaggerated). The fine point is now a larger flat (or more accurately rounded) point and will also be burred over slightly (not shown) making it even duller. What I do to restore the point is grind the back of the blade off, at a slight ang...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #129: Moving Right Along

10-10-2010 01:54 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I made good headway yesterday. Although I still have some of the pattern packet writing to do, I did get through much of it and I also got some other important things completed. I finished drawing and cutting the charm pieces for my Wright Inspired candle tray. I think the charms are as cool as the tray itself. They would make key chain tags or even a necklace. I found a piece of thin walnut that was as dark as the tray and it looked pretty nice. It took me only about half an hour to cut...

Setting up new shop #1: Transforming the dungeon

10-10-2010 09:28 AM by WoodenSoldier | 5 comments »

Haven’t been on the site much lately. In August I moved from Hawaii to the San Francisco area, left the active duty Army, traveled across the country, and started a new job. My wife and I like the new place and the area, but my only complaint so far is that I don’t have a garage to set up shop in. The only thing I have to work with is this old dungeon of a cellar. It doesn’t extend under the whole house unfortunately and for some reason the landlord has a ton of old real...

Extremely Average #273: A Drubbing

10-10-2010 05:57 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello All, Still waiting on my computer. Today my father and I went to the ISU vs. Utah game. My post tonight is entitled ‘A Drubbing’. I took a bunch of pictures with my iphone and was pleasantly surprised with the results. I know a lot of you are only interested in my woodworking posts, but I will say, there are CHEERLEADERS in one photo. Not that that would sway you. :-) Brian
