new saw

12-21-2009 01:35 PM by papaj | 3 comments »

I saw the Rigid R4511 on sale at HD. All they had left was the display model, so I got 10% off the sale price. Still paid $425.00…well my wife did for my xmas present. I am giving my Craftsman contractors saw to my oldest son who just bought his first home a couple of months ago.The saw is put together, but I will go back over it and make sure everything is done correctly. I know how store workers put stuff together.I won’t get a chance to do anything with it until after the N...

Garden Gate III #7: The inner laminates

12-21-2009 08:50 AM by newTim | 2 comments »

On my first gate the panel was held in place with stays based on the David Marks project. The second gate used rabbet like a picture frame. For this project I decided to go back to the stays. They are not hard to make as you can use the gate itself as a form. While I was prepping the stock for the outer laminates I made an extra set for the inner laminates. The only trick is the measure the length of the inner arch. I used a flex tape, but could have used a string or other flexible item...

Am I But Sawdust

12-21-2009 08:03 AM by JAGWAH | 6 comments »

I ponder the shavings on my shop floor and ask,”Have I done an injustice. Have I left too much on the floor, too little on the piece to justify the loss of so great a spirit.” In my life as this tree, when I am felled…. Will I have lived well enough? Will the essence of my life be used to create something else, greater, or will I lie mostly as shavings on some craftsman’s floor? A noble effort to a failed purpose. To be pondered upon as a great effort failed or the definition of a...

A Big Thank you to a fellow Lumberjock

12-21-2009 05:17 AM by Rustic | 7 comments »

Hey guys and gals I just wanted to publicly thank sswoodworker for letting me purchase a table saw he had. I set it up friday and ran a test cut today.

We are meeting for coffee and then a short tour of my shop. ( it is still in disarray from the switch) I am also working on a new clamp rack system. That’...

Adirondack Chair & Table #1: Intro and Preparing the Back Slats

12-21-2009 12:41 AM by jcontract | 7 comments »

I’ve always loved the Adironack Chair. Some of my fondest memories are sitting in one and relaxing with a cold drink, watching the sunset when it’s the perfect temperature, with just a hint of a soft breeze. So when a few years back when my wife and I bought our first house, we needed the perfect Adirondack chair for the backyard. One that was comfortable, but not too low to the ground. One that didn’t feel like you were too reclined. I looked high and low for the perfect...

My First Laminating Project

12-20-2009 11:57 PM by PG_Zac | 4 comments »

So what can you make with salvaged parquet floor blocks? This one is not a gift, but it is intended to be a centre piece on the family Christmas-Lunch table. Here is the rough design of a candle holder I am making for Friday. (inspired by an LJ posting).The pale sections are parquet blocks, and the pink sections are thin strips of the found wood shown here. This is my first laminating project so there are a few firsts, and a few lessons learned. First glue-up of the main body..Mai...

Rescued Wood #5: Junk Pile Find

12-20-2009 11:12 PM by PG_Zac | 11 comments »

My wife found some long lengths of really grotty looking wood in the junk pile left behind by the previous tenants of the farm, and decided to use them to build a platform in a tree for the goat. She asked me to cut one of the lengths for her, so I did. When I saw the inside, I was seriously intrigued by the rich pink colour that showed in the cut, so I cleaned up the off-cut piece to get a better look. Here is an uncleaned piece next to a cleaned piece..Needless to say, I have confisc...
