I few months ago I picked up a Delta/Rockwell 14” bandsaw. It was in horrible condition and needed a lot of work. I found the saw on Craigslist, called the seller and made an appt to see and eventually buy the saw. I completed the bandsaw a few weeks ago. While I was loking at the saw I was talking with the seller and mentioned to him I like to use older equipment and was looking for an old unisaw. He told me to look around the “yard”, the place was a storage facility for...
well i am hot enough about this to post an entry, and truthfully i do not feel this is acceptable by any standards, maybe you will disagree but here is my beef… I placed an order on Thursday July 9th at 4pm EST, F+W Media billed my bank, the order was not processed the next day which was Friday, nothing happened over the weekend, nothing happened again Monday, then maybe it shipped Tuesday July 14th? Maybe… In that very same amount of time, i purchased similar items shipped ...
We got a new TV recently and since it is one of those all in one units (big screen and big speaker underneath) my old entertainment center had to go. However, I still need some where to put all my components. Here is the sketchup of my new design. I am reclaiming the wood from my old entertainment center so anything that is gray in the above pic is 3/4 Birch ply finished with black lacquer. The trim and back support are 3/4 poplar and the front supports will be 1/2 steel pipe. The open...
well the general construction of the desk is done so i figured id share some pictures. a lot of pictures today. first i want to address the drawer frames though. in my case the drawer frames are pretty simple. they are just a frame and panel construction out of pine with pegged tongue and groove. the groove is pegged with a little cut nail in this case but something that works really well are brad nails as well as a tooth pick. they just work really nice. then it is shaped to fit the front...
After working in the Valley for a couple of weeks, I decided to spend some of my harder than I thought earned money to get a mortising machine. I settled on the DELTA 14-651 because of its Amazon reviews and price point ($289). I would’ve loved to get the Powermatic, but that would’ve taken another year to justify ($480). I rationalized that with all of the mortises that I’ll need for the dining room table, that this additional expense will pay itself off on this on...
Updated 1/16/12 I spent a lot of time developing a way to let the lid swing down into the box, yet still maintaining a fairly tight reveal on all four sidesThe difficulty is the lip itself. It doesnt allow the back of the lid to drop into the box, so thats where we need to cut it away a little deeper at the back. I call these pockets.The other difficulty is in getting the hinge placement spot on or it wont open at all or not far enough to stay open. Here is how its done: Use the same pa...
Because time is flying, it’s already 3 months ago that a car ran into a telephone pole (and street light) outside my office building, knocking it (them) down. I ran out and got some streetside safety gear, and my little electric chainsaw. Here I am, making all of that look too tiny: With no accessible outlet anywhere nearby (and no truck yet with bed-outlet), I had to settle for my Irwin carpenter saw. The pole was all hollow inside from rot and bugs when I sn...
This afternoon went up to the workshop and dressed the rest of the short boards of NGR .. 44 to be exact all 5’ long. Only took a few minutes. LOLHere be the pictures of the boards as they were dressed and stickered as requested by Bob and Blkcherry. Still have around 40 odd longer lengths [ 8’] to dress for the entertainment unit and the two stationary cupboards.. also two book cases.
Well…since we built the shed…it has been tough to find multiple days in a row to get shop time…between visitors and our own travels I have had a day here and a day there…but I have made lots of progress and tomorrow I hope to finish my first table top for the new miter station… Since my last entry I have: 1) moved 95% of “the “non-shop stuff” out of my garage…so now it is A SHOP…2) put up shelves in the shed for all that stuffR...
