Tablesaw #1: New Unisaw or Sawstop

09-15-2009 06:52 AM by Mike | 11 comments »

I had a chance to stop in today to the nearest store that carried the New Delta Unisaw. I looked it all over and was really impressed with this new saw. It looks like Delta did their homework on this one. Does anyone own the new Unisaw and if so how do you like it? I know it doesn’t have the brake system on it like the Sawstop. With the sawstop if you change blades, you will have to check the distance between the brake and the blade and then re-adjust it necessary. If I want Safe...

Workbench #7: Finish line is in sight!...Maybe. Are they ever completely finished?

09-15-2009 04:00 AM by KellyS | 3 comments »

I began working on the mortises in the top and had a complete relapse in talent. The first one was horrible. I used a drill guide I bought from Sears in hopes of everything being perpendicular and cleaner. Boy was I partially wrong. The first one came out horrible, but cleaned up so,so. I’m so glad this wasn’t one of the mortises in the base. I started trying to use a 1-1/2” fostner bit but eventually downsized to a 1-3/8” and chose to clean them up with a chisel. I was having a hard time sta...

Just for Fun... #5: Strong to the finish

09-14-2009 11:38 PM by littlecope | 4 comments »

There hasn’t been a lot to report on this lately. We’re talking finishing here and it’s pretty droll stuff.If you recall we left off hereNow my Dad had a great suggestion regarding the prominent “stripes” on the lid, which are, of course, merely leftover stain in the hollows of the contour. He said, “You ought to paint them. Paint them black. Shiny black..” And so I didI actually painted them again the following morning after this. The first coat just...

When it was finished, the client decided to introduce a change: to divide the desk.

09-14-2009 10:47 PM by xylosapiens | 2 comments »

The client decided to make a change: he need an access to the desk’s inside, when her products are exposed on the counter. After thinking about the possible solutions and having to keep the structural solidity, I decided that easiest alternative was to cut the desk board. One of the questions was how to make the holes for the axes in such a small space. I found only one solution: to tear off the central piece for drilling, so that after glueing, the piece could looked like before manipu...

Black walnut

09-14-2009 10:14 PM by bobbo1963 | 13 comments »

I am building a cradle and am using black walnut for the first time. A friend indicated that glueing will be a issue. To accomplish this, He said that a bleeching foam would be needed. This will help in finishing as well. I have never heard of this and would all inputs pro or con. Thanks

Flute tutorial (part 9)

09-14-2009 08:12 PM by Den | 0 comments »

Before glueing, get a stick and wrap it with a paper towel, and tape it to the stick, get the towel wet with water, after glueing you will want to put it in the bore end to wipe out the excess glue that has spill into the bore. You can choose your own glue for wood. I use titebond 3.You will want enough clamps to clamp about 4” (101.6 mm) (10.16 CM) apart from each other, I clamp both ends first. because of the glue, the pieces will slide. match your side lines together, and the cent...

Flute tutorial (part 8)

09-14-2009 07:32 PM by Den | 2 comments »

you should notice in this picture that the SAC and the TSH are up against the block. Every flute makers has his own idea as to where to put the TSH; either against the block or some will measure about 1/4” (6.35mm) (0.635 cm) from the block wall. I have done it both ways, and preferr to do it against the wall or block.After your have gotten the TSH and SAC file as shown in the picture. Measure form the SAC and the TSH 1” towards the mouth and 1” towards the foot.(25.4 mm...
