Extremely Average #59: Flatening with A Router

03-02-2010 04:43 AM by Ecocandle | 14 comments »

The whole point of devoting my early woodworking days to building stuff for woodworking is to learn. Today, while reading the latest issue of shop notes, I learned that the router table top, which I am building, is a laminated top. I guess I had always thought that laminated only applied to thin strips glued together. I don’t know why I assumed there was some sort of arbitrary thickness requirement. Now I know.The seven sets of laminated sections have become three. The middle section...

Woodworking Tour of the Berkshires

03-02-2010 03:49 AM by Glen Peterson | 13 comments »

In January I posted to an LJ forum about a planned woodworking trip to the Berkshires. We went on Feb 19, 2010, and it was a great day. Well, it was a cold day, when Steve and I left Glastonbury, CT for the Berkshires. During the trip we were joking about buddy movies and decided to subtitle our trip: Glen & Steve’s Excellent Woodworking Adventure as an homage to perhaps the worst buddy film of all time. Our first stop was Bannish Lumber in tiny Chester, Mass. Their URL is h...

Making a wacky daxophone! #2: Day 1

03-02-2010 02:53 AM by Justin | 1 comment »

So today I began the construction of my daxophone. Just a little background first: The daxophone is a relativly new, experimental instrument invented by Hans Reichel in the 1980’s. It is composed of a soundbox, a dax, and a tongue. The tongue vibrates ontop of the soundbox which is connected to an amplifier. The dax is slid up and down the tongue to control pitch. I choose to make this instrument because it’s all about wood, has endless possibilities, and I think it sounds...

Building a cedar strip canoe #3: Bending the stems

03-02-2010 02:32 AM by roaddog | 2 comments »

I finally decided to steam-bend the stems. I had a lot of worries leading up to this but it was much easier than I had thought it would be. I machined a dozen strips 1/4” x 7/8” x 4’ out of walnut. I threw the strips in my steam-tube for about 20 minutes and then my wife helped by applying the C-clamps while I bent the strips around the form. We put the first clamp at the keel end and then I bent the strips around the form and held it while she put a clamp at the bend and t...

Big Sale on Jet and Powermatic

03-01-2010 09:02 PM by richgreer | 4 comments »

On March 11 – 14, Jet and Powermatic are having a big sale. I’m aware of what the sale price will be on Jet’s 10” x 14” mini lathe. It will be on sale for $279. That’s an incredible price. As an FYI, I and several other people, just did a turning demo at local tool store on Saturday. The store provided us with a couple of lathes to use, including this Jet mini. I had never turned on a mini-lathe before. I was quite impressed with this littl...

Here's a post on the Gripper rip off, made by Woodline, and my homemade cyclones

03-01-2010 08:19 PM by jockmike2 | 12 comments »

I was asked to show the Woodline Adjustable Push Block, I got at the Woodshow we attended over the weekend. And a couple of the guys were interested in the cyclones I made from a one hp Harbor Frieght dust collector, which wasn’t worth much until I did this to it, and I had a small blue barrel I picked up at a yard sail last summer I hooked up to my 5 hp Rigid shop Vac, < ...
