Table saw island #2: More progress

05-27-2010 10:50 AM by 559dustdesigns | 5 comments »

I am really happy with the way things have come together on my latest project, The table saw island. Today I got the torsion box structure in place. After taking these pictures I cut the top of the torsion box, but it needs to be trimmed some more to fit right. I made an attempt to cut it out and put it in place but ran out of time for tonight, left there at 8:45 and it’s a 45min drive home. In one of the pictures you will see what I came up with for the dust collection to the saw. If...

Patio / Deck Bench #1: Medicine cabinet on hold - Bench slips ahead

05-27-2010 05:38 AM by Blinky | 3 comments »

I set aside the me I decided to use some scraps of Ipé from the deck that was built a couple years ago to finally build that bench, to sit on top of said deck. Here is a sketchup snapshot of part of the design; And a few of work in progress. I cut the butt-swoop in the top of the ‘ribs’ on the bandsaw. I cut the dadoes in the rail to fit the seat supports w/a router, then drilled holes for walnut dowels.I tried use the best SS screws I had, but the 1st one snapped, and ...

My Little Shop Progress #6: Outfeed and Work Table

05-27-2010 04:38 AM by Kerux | 5 comments »

Little bit at a time. At least that is what I keep telling myself. Slowly but surely I’ll get this shop into a place where I can, “Just go out and make something.” I few pics I forgot to take would be my little dust collector areas I put in for my Lathe and Table saw. Just something to make hooking up my mobile unit a little quicker. I’ll get some pics for next time. Here is a quick simple corner tray so I had some place to throw my bits. (better organization...

Finally a drill press!

05-27-2010 02:05 AM by Chase | 8 comments »

I had been operating with an old second hand HF benchtop drill press with a slipping belt for a while now. I patiently waited for lowes to drop their delta drill presses to a reasonable price here in my area, but it just wasnt happening. So imagine my surprise and joy when I saw this guy on craigslist! A craftsman 17” 1.5hp floor stand drill press. unlike my last one the tapper isn’t a mile out of whack. when you turn it on the tip of the bit just spins, no fancy hu...

Charles Neil build along mahogany lowboy "series" #8: week

05-27-2010 01:11 AM by a1Jim | 21 comments »

Charles Neil lowboy build-along, episode #8 Ok gang, we have our legs and they’re mortised and tenoned. The next step is to cut out the front, back and side panels. Before I go further, let’s review some basics, going back to the beginning. #1. Select wood with the figure you want, check its quality and moisture content. Thanks Charles. #2. Let wood acclimate to its new environment, for as long as possible. (It’s been 6 weeks). #3. Double check the dimensions before rough cutting an...

Cutting veneers on the bandsaw, from green wood?

05-26-2010 06:55 PM by Brian Havens | 4 comments »

I have done my share of veneer work, using both commercial veneers and veneer I cut myself on the bandsaw. I also do a lot of turning, mostly from green wood. Until now these two pleasures have remained disparate, but this past month, those pleasures collided. It all started after I scored some logs of Claro Walnut. There was one particular piece of crotch that I could not figure out what to do with, so I left it in the shape of a block. About a day later, while looking at the photo b...

The first Art Box I completed and later posted was “Rachels Box”. I wasnt sure how it would be received, but it was a big hit right off the line. It just recently topped over 10,000 views and is the most viewed box on LJ. Wow! http://lumberjocks.com/projects/tag/box/by/views Its popularity and the ones that followed were what motivated me to post the tutorial which was a help to many.http://lumberjocks.com/Argyllshire/blog/9415 I still get mail asking about this style of box...

End grain cutting boards #1: End grain cutting boards

05-26-2010 03:31 PM by emetric | 6 comments »

Ok so I have heard a lot of people talk about making end grain cutting boards, and most of them have horror stories relating to disastrous results from running them through a planer. I myself have made no less than 14-15 end grain cutting boards and I ran every single one through my Delta portable thickness planer with very little issue. Of course the last edge that comes out will be “flaking” off but that could be solved by adding an extra piece of sacrificial stock during the ...
