11-11-2010 06:24 AM by longgone | 11 comments »

We all have read and heard about the dangers of breathing wood dust over extended periods of time.Stopped up sinuses and sawdust boogers are just a start and the tip of the iceburg regarding problems and after effects that can occur.The linked video may be disturbing to some and children should be asked to not look at the computer unless under parental supervision

Way Back Wednesday #1: November 10, 2010

11-11-2010 05:19 AM by Chris Davis | 1 comment »

My intent for Way Back Wednesday was to post pictures of project that go back years. Some that are even PC (Pre-Chris). I thought I’d start first with the “Original Crew”. The first picture is Gary (my dad) and three of his brothers (Jeff, Larry, and Curtis). Not pictured in the first picture of he Original Crew is my mom Lou, uncle Jimmy and my Grandpa Ray. This is truly a family business. All my uncles have worked here and the youngest works with me now. I do have ...

SawStop Cures the Idiot!!

11-11-2010 03:51 AM by DrAllred | 15 comments »

Well, I love the SawStop Table Saw, Technology is just absolutely great. So this is the story, and I am still able to type with all of my fingers, but one is a bit painful to do so. I was in the shop, working on some small projects that I have been toying with and making jigs to create them in an easier way than just brute force. I had just finished recovering a lot of 1.5” plywood from a pallet I got from work. In doing so I had to use the riving knife on the table saw as the gu...

Roubo-Moxon Bench Build #9: Base Complete

11-11-2010 03:33 AM by Eric | 9 comments »

A lot’s happened lately! I pegged the long stretchers. Funny story. In my mind, the pegs in Schwarz’s Roubo were 5/8”. I didn’t have a 5/8” bit, but I had a very nice 3/4” one, so I used that and made 3/4” pegs. I figure, maybe they’re a touch bigger than the ones Chris used, but hey, no biggie. Just the other day I realized: Chris used 3/8” pegs!!! Haha, oh well, the Schwarz has said that you can’t overbuild a workbench, right? ...

Lego Table

11-11-2010 03:25 AM by AllTen | 1 comment »

Some time back I came up with an idea for a project. The inspiration for this was do to my son and his collection of Lego’s being all over the house and stepping on them at the wrong time. So I decided that I would make a table that he could keep all of his Lego’s in and still build on top of. In short keeping them in one area, I hope. I made the sides out of some walnut and the rest out of oak. It’s approx. 3’ by 3’. I haven’t decided what to do f...

Stone Inlay - a tutorial for the "Birches" #2: Playing with Stones

11-11-2010 02:41 AM by swirlsandburls | 9 comments »

Welcome to the second installment! I had some pieces of leftover marble from a flooring project the former owner of our house had left behind. Just a word here on minerals and stones. I never buy pre-crushed stones. They are too uniform for my taste. I use a very large granite mortar and pestle to reduce the raw stones and minerals before sifting. I also use bonsai soil screens to sift into six or seven general sizes and hand-pick the pieces I want. For an overview of minerals in the...

Band Saw Rip Fence...the Video

11-11-2010 01:17 AM by Bob Simmons | 6 comments »

“Necessity is the Mother of Invention” Plato….Ancient Greek Philosopher…(428 BC-348 BC) This short video shows the beauty and simplicity of the Band Saw Rip Fence. The L-shaped fence in the video was made from scrap MDF in 10 minutes and was available for use immediately thereafter. You will notice a protective strip of oak that was glued and pin nailed to the rip side of the fence. This will allow the fence to be used for a long time. The first time you use it y...

Trestle Table Desks #1: Milling the leg parts and mortising

11-11-2010 12:40 AM by Lee Barker | 2 comments »

General outline: Two identical desks, 30×72, 6/4 cherry with a juniper accent somewhere. Progress shown here: The milled parts for the leg units. The verticals will be mortised into the feet and the opposite piece to the feet—what is that, the head? The shoulder? I think I like “shoulder” better. The juniper panels will be inset between the two verticals (femurs?). I’ve not yet decided how tall the panel will be, but the width is 5”. The feet ar...

Not what was planned but more than expected

11-10-2010 11:42 PM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

If you’ve been following this blog at all you’ll know that I’ve been working on adding a router table top to my table saw. Many of you have provided very helpful insight. Well, things have take a serious turn for the better. What started out as a just a router table top has turned into an outfeed table as well. I was seeking the advice of a friend the other day and the next thing I know we’re in his shop totally revamping my original ideas. The only problem is tha...
