My Journey #1: Quest for "Flat"

09-15-2010 05:10 AM by Trimble | 2 comments »

So, I’m just starting to learn woodworking. I’ve wanted to learn woodworking since I was much younger… The thought of building my own computer desk someday has secretly lingered in the back of my mind for many years. Recently, I was given the task of building shelving for a storage building to store most of my stuff (I share a house with my in-laws… ick). For fathers day, my wife bought me a cheap Ryobi router table from Home Depot. I’ve always wanted a ro...

Replacing fence on R4511 Table saw

09-15-2010 03:25 AM by Cato | 7 comments »

After finishing my most recent project I have some parts to install on a couple of shop tools. First one is on my Ridgid 4511 table saw. I bought a Delta T2-30 fence that is a standard one piece rail and tube set up vs. the split tube and rear rail that was OEM for my saw. I have had this fence for several weeks but was using the saw to finish a work table so it had to wait. This evening after work I unbolted the old fence and rear rail, and was prepared to start measuring and markin...

"Perfectly Flat" Dados?

09-15-2010 03:01 AM by knotscott | 11 comments »

This borders on a “knitpick” IMO, but for the sake of clarity and truth in advertising, I think it deserves to be addressed. I frequently read phrases like “perfectly flat bottoms” and “absolutely perfect” in regards to grooves and dados cut from stacked dado sets. No doubt, some are better than others, and the very best are really, really good, but nearly all the stacked dado sets I know of use beveled teeth on the outside cutters to help minimize tearout (Freud, Forrest,...

Not quite in the workshop... #26: Chillin out, and giving my back some time to rest.

09-15-2010 12:51 AM by dbhost | 3 comments »

Those that follow my Journey Into The Workshop blog series no doubt have heard me repeatedly lament about my back as of late. I have given my overworked back muscles way more than they bargained for, well since I returned from Oregon in very early August. Nearly on a nightly basis, and almost all day on each weekend day I have been building, cleaning, painting, or demolishing something around the house, and the workshop trying to finish getting both my home, and my workshop in order. Now f...

Revamping my Delta Contractor Saw #10: The Core of the New Extension Table

09-14-2010 11:38 PM by Mark Colan | 6 comments »

The Delta Contractors Saw came with a melamine table top, sized about 27×32”, to support work on the right side of the blade. The Unifence attached to it. This table top has gotten beaten up with use, particularly because I formerly did not have a good workbench and it got misused, so I have replaced it a couple of times, and the current one is in only fair condition. The Incra fence has provisions for using a fence, though as noted in an earlier blog entry, you add the table ...

Evolution of a Shop #13: Tool board over workbench

09-14-2010 05:07 PM by Cory | 12 comments »

I’ve never really been a big fan of pegboard, but it’s incredibly functional and cheap. So, like most shops, mine has some pegboard in it. I really wanted to do something different, though, to hold my tools over my workbench. I was watching some old Wood Whisperer videos the other day and saw his french cleat system on a piece of plywood. Then, I was looking through this web site: http://benchmark.20m.com/index.html and saw his french cleat system throughout his shop. IR...

Setting Up To Carve a Gunstock.

09-14-2010 04:34 PM by HalDougherty | 17 comments »

The first thing I do is to set up two lasers to position a center line from the center of the rear stock holder to the point of the dead center at the top of the stock. Then check spacing from the stylus and the cutter. I use a 1/8” cutter & stylus and make sure it’s centered in the laser beam from one end to the other. Tiny missalignments will show up so they can be corrected..
