Power Tool Mods #1: Delta Contractor Table Saw - mods to date

08-24-2010 08:43 PM by Mark Colan | 2 comments »

Being new to lumberjocks, but not to woodworking, I have some past mods to write about. Some are purchased mods; some are shop-made. Most of them have an impact that needs to be considered as I prepare to install an Incra LS32-TS-SF fence. The original saw is the 2000 edition of the Delta Contractors saw. The base saw is model 36-444, and it came with a cast-iron left extension wing, a laminated right-side extension table with two legs, and a Delta Unifence. All of these have served me...

Bedrails #2: Oops.

08-24-2010 08:22 PM by AnnaEA | 1 comment »

In which everything is going along swimmingly, until it turns out I failed to buy the right size lag bolts. This slat is being attached with lag bolts instead of wood screws so that if we need to move the bed, I can take it off the ladder. The upper part of it will have a notch cut into to it to slide the rail into, and the rail itself will have some little wing-type what-nots on the butt end of it so it can’t slide back out sideways. So I’ve got it all bored, slide the ...

Not quite in the workshop... #25: Correcting auger mistakes...

08-24-2010 06:40 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

So lining up the rails, building the gate and all for my fence, I discovered something REALLY annoying… The last post hole appears to be 6” inward on the property line instead of right on it (Now HOW did that chalk line move?)/ So anyway, I had to remove an already concreted in post. Yay fun right? Out comes the cats paw to gracefully remove the nails from the rails, and then the concrete removal tools came out. Yep, the 10 lb sledge hammer, and shovel. Now I am pretty sure ...

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription OptionsWhenever I lay out my project parts in rough lumber, I find that there are 5 things that I always try to keep in mind. This video is a quick excerpt of those five tips from the Chest of Drawers Guild Build. And yes, this is clearly an advertisement for the Wood Whisperer Guild. But hey, if I am going to advertise to you I sure as heck should put something useful in there for you to enjoy. If you have no interest in se...

Maloof Rocker - Padauk #3: Seat carving

08-24-2010 03:57 PM by yellowtruck75 | 2 comments »

Havn’t completed much work lately on my chair, my wife and I recently bought a new house so we are trying to sell our current one. Last night I was able to do my first rough grinding on the seat. Looks like I will be able to save a good amount of the white sap wood that runs through the seat. I also have started to glue up the back supports and rockers (no pictures). I have decided to add strips of maple into the rockers and back supports as an accent. Tonight I will spend a ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #82: My "Other Shop" (Lots of pictures!)

08-24-2010 02:27 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 15 comments »

I knew it was going to be a great day yesterday. I could just tell from the beginning. Did you ever have days like that? After seeing that beautiful sky when the sun first came up, how could it NOT be a good day? Sometimes things are just like that. After mapping out my day here and writing my blog and getting all the stuff I needed to do around here, I headed to the bank to see if I could get an appointment and find out some things with my USA banking situation. I only expected to bo...

wooden winch #3: holes and bottom frame

08-24-2010 05:56 AM by moshel | 6 comments »

First, I drilled the holes for the handles, here it is with one 3/4” pipe in place (I don’t have two…): I also added screws to help with the shearing force. not sure if it was wise: another addition was more screws to hold the parts of the circle together, as i was afraid the edge will catch: now I could set my mind on the frame… first comes denailing. For those of you who never worked with recycled timber, here is a photo if a relatively easy to d...

Entertainment Center/Cabinet Built In #1: My Wife has put a challenge up for me.

08-24-2010 05:17 AM by docholladay | 12 comments »

OK folks. Who wouldn’t want to take on this deal? Recently, my wife and I went into Best Buy. I don’t remember what we went to get. Probably something for her phone or something like that. Anyway, llike any normal male sports fan, I was drawn toward the flat screen TV’s. I was looking at a 46” unit in particular when my wife says to me, “If you will build this cabinet system (incorporating a space for said TV), I will buy that TV for you.” First of a...
