The desks are now assembled and I started fabricating the drawer fronts and doors. After realizing I made the doors wrong and couldn’t use the concealed hinges that I wanted, I made another set.These pictures show some in progress shots of what I did to accommodate the hinges I have. The parts are marked and ready for drilling for the hinge cups. I used my General drill guide a lot on this project. Most of the drawer boxes are finished and I am now in the middle...
Hi all, my first blog/post I have a Craftsman 10” contractor’s table saw circa 1970s that needs a better fence. The stock fence just isn’t true. I’ve been looking at all kinds of them out there. Prices range from $150 to $400+. Anyone have a recommendation? I don’t do a lot of cutting, but if I had a better fence I might. I’m going to build an armoire for the living room and accuracy would be necessary. What about the saw itself? I install...
Hello All, Not much about woodworking tonight. I had a request for more detailed information about building traffic to my blog through SU, and I do like requests, so that is tonight’s blog. My StumbleUpon Methodology – Extremely Average http://su.pr/6atfFx Brian
Having retired some 18 months ago, I’ve been picking up some woodworking skills and tools and it’s obvious that you can never have enough of either, but particularly of the skills. I’ve got a 11×24 shop that has served me fairly well until I bought a hybrid table saw. Now, to do anything I drag one tool out of the way and drag the next one into place. It’s boring work that I’ve put up with till a friend said ‘Why don’t you build a bigger shop?...
Hello everyone, This is my first attempt at blogging and I want to thank LumberJocks for making this effort possible. I have really enjoyed the projects, comments, and talent of the people on this site. I have had lots of positive response to the walnut tables I finished last month (my first project posted on LJ). A woodworker friend wants a piece to display in his showroom. Most of the woodwork he has is rustic and he would like to show some more refined pieces. Today I bought enoug...
The Splined Mitre Joint is a decorative yet very strong joint. The addition of the spline and glue makes a regular mitre joint all the more stronger while aiding in keeping the mitre nice and tight. By using a contrasting wood the woodworker can achieve a very distinctive appearance at the joint. This woodworking video tutorial shows how the spline mitre joint is made using a woodworking jig on the tablesaw. For more information.visit…www.TheApprenticeandTheJourneyman.com.........
I picked up my old craftsman bandsaw today. I was talking to my realtor last week and he knew I did wood work. He told me about this saw that was in his basement and he has no use for it.I asked a few questions and said I would come and look at it. Today I went, it is an older craftsman from the 60-70’s. When I asked how much he wanted. TAKE IT get , thanks for getting it out of here. I REALLY ENJOY those prices. !I now have 2 bandsaws. Both too small for what I want to do, but “O...

Been a while but I’m finally back up and working. Pc and computer room took a shot of lightning and cooked about 5 weeks ago. No damage to house or property…just PC and some peripherals. Taken this long to get everything back to normal and start loading the new Pc with some of the stuff I lost. Worst problem is trying to get some of my older stuff to run on Windows 7! I’m still waiting for a few ‘upgrades’ from vendors who volunteered to send me compatible versio...
I need to make some tool holders to get my tools a place of there own, where I know they are when I need them. I am going to make them so that they are able to hang on cleats, which I already have in part of my shop. I found a picture in Woodsmith magazine showing a way to hold tools. There were no plans, but it looked easy enough to make my own without how-to instructions. I wanted to hold three tools for now, my battery powered drill, my electric drill and my jigsaw. To figure out ...
