New Table Saw

12-18-2009 07:51 PM by Rustic | 9 comments »

Well, the time has come for a new table saw. My old one was not keeping the blade on tight anymore. I got ahold of a fellow LJ er and went to look at one that he had. It was a Craftsman that needs some minor TLC. Nothing I can’t handle. I pickied it up for $60.00. I am on a budget here so anything is better than my old one. I will post pics when I get it set up. Also I am getting a new video camera today. So maybe if you are lucky and been a good woody, maybe you will start to see so...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #3: Arched Candle Holder - It's all about adapting

12-18-2009 06:03 PM by sras | 5 comments »

Well, trimming up the sides removed the gaps I showed in the previous post. BUT the trimming exposed other gaps! Definitely needed to do a better job of clamping! Time to adapt. Time to go back to the shrinking scrap pile. As luck would have it, I had two strips of cherry from an even older project. If I remember right, these strips are from the first cherry boards I ever bought (19 years ago). Both strips are long enough and one of them has enough length to cover the ends as well. ...

pipe clamp suggestions

12-18-2009 05:35 PM by RKW | 21 comments »

We all know that you can never have too many clamps and acquiring a sufficient collection of clamps takes alot of money and usually alot of time. A while back I purchased two bessey 3/4 pipe clamps for $13.00 each and two 2ft threaded pipe nipples for about $8.00 each. This came out to around $22.00 per clamp. Recently i was at harbour freight. I will first say that i have a love hate relationship with this store. Their blades and bits are not worth a crap. However, i have bought se...

Getting more from my router #2: Where do I begin

12-18-2009 10:41 AM by TemplateTom | 7 comments »

First the material I have posted on You Tube was a series of videos I had prepared before going to the wood show, to show others what really can be achieved with the router with the aid of the guides. I suppose what really has to be explained is ‘Why I use Template Guides’. Template guides will introduce greater safety awareness with the use of the router. It will also introduce projects that you may consider not suitable of producing with the router. It will also a add a grea...

A journey into the workshop. #29: Making progress on the extension wing.

12-18-2009 06:45 AM by dbhost | 5 comments »

Up until now the extension wing to the BT3100 has been a simple two layer 3/4” pine ply lamination. Simply a nice, flat table top. That is all about to change… LOML gave me an early Christmas present of a Bench Dog Pro Plate and Rockler insert template, and I have some Rockler miter track just laying around, so it was time to measure up where I wanted everything, and write is down. 5.25” in from each side, 7” in from the end. Miter slot in 5.5” from the end. ...

Amazing Tools #8: SAWSTOP on TimeWarp

12-18-2009 04:16 AM by Gary Fixler | 14 comments »

There’s a show on Discovery called “TimeWarp” which uses super high speed cameras to slow down all matter of phenomena to show what’s going on in the physical world at micro timescales. They had a call for entries after one episode and it got me to thinking that I’d love to see various woodworking things slowed down. Apparently they had the same idea last year, but I missed it. They put the SAWSTOP under the cameras, and the inventor even tried it on his own fing...

Making a Game for $5.00 #1: Starting Out

12-18-2009 02:54 AM by Deela40 | 4 comments »

The Bible study I am a part of is having a party for Christmas. Each person is supposed to bring one gift, spending no more than $5.00. I saw this as a challenge. $5.00 isn’t much and I wanted to offer something of higher value. Lucky for me, my wife recently brought home some free pieces of wood. She works at an art gallery and they were getting rid of some random things. She saw some wood they had used as plaques that were going to be tossed. As she is industrious and thoughtful,...
