No moving ripfence strip cutting jig.

10-18-2010 02:49 PM by Don Butler | 11 comments »

I did this image in SketchUp to be certain it was as clear as I can make it. The jig straddles the ripfence and has a replacable push finger, shown in red, that shoves the work into the saw blade. The image shows the main parts of the jig in green and a finished cut piece on the other side of the blade. This configuration also keeps the cut pieces well away from the fence so no kickbacks can occur. Rather than continuously moving the ripfence after each cut, the jig keeps the wor...

Built In Closets #2: Making the pieces

10-18-2010 02:36 PM by SPHinTampa | 1 comment »

I ordered 5 sheets of 3/4” maple ply from Tampa Intercity Lumber (if you are in the area, they are very helpful and carry nice stock). Until recently I did not have a decent table saw (more on that later), so rented shop time from Intercity Lumber and cut down the panels to 15” widths before loading into my Avalanche and heading home. Here are the cut down panels For the face frames, I also purchased 32 bd ft of 1×8” maple, which I then cut down into 1×2...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #137: Almost There

10-18-2010 01:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I am quite proud of how things worked out yesterday. It feels wonderful when things actually work out how they are supposed to. I spent the day cutting for the most part and by 4pm I had not one but two new trays cut out. When I was writing about it yesterday morning, I was wondering if I would be able to accomplish it. After the Wright tray taking so long, my confidence in myself was a bit shaken. Not in the sense if I was able to do it or not but in the time line. Both patterns went...

Extremely Average #277: Kindle Stuff

10-18-2010 08:00 AM by Ecocandle | 4 comments »

Hey Everyone, I made a great find last night. Ok, actually it was at about 3AM on Sunday morning, but the point is that, as some of you know, I have been working on putting Henry Wood into Kindle form. I wrote tonight’s blog about the PC and Apple versions of the Kindle reader. There are lots and lots of talented people here on Lumber Jocks. I am sure that some of you have thought about compiling your blog posts into a book, and the more I learn about it, the more excited I get...

Rebuilding a vintage Craftsman Table Saw 113.29920 #6: FUMES and FIRE, painted......

10-18-2010 06:26 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 3 comments »

Well, with all the fumes, the saw colors make it look like it’s on fire. Today, I got to spray some primer and some paint. I painted our living room red last summer before we moved in. I forgot how poorly red paint coats, and just how many coats it takes to get something truly red. Persistence, and two cans of Rustoleum paid off. Here’s the result… Make sure you look at the rest of the album. I did get around to painting the motor and the other parts orange. I ...

The Basement #2: Hardwood Flooring..........Cheap.

10-18-2010 06:25 AM by JL7 | 6 comments »

I am a big Craigslist fan, always scanning the materials sections for deals, and those short lots of hardwood flooring come up alot. Those folks with 50 sf of leftover floor that want 1/2 price are quite common. The realiity is not to many people are looking for 50 sf of floor, so more often than not, they accept offers much less than 1/2 price, and often it is downright CHEAP! So this thread is devoted to my cheapness and the use of cool hardwood in pratical applications in the shop and...

Roubo-Moxon Bench Build #6: Legs Are Made to Stand

10-18-2010 05:44 AM by Eric | 10 comments »

Wow, that was tedious. Sawing through a 6” x 6 1/2” with a ryoba was no joke. Then I had to flatten the bottom. Not too bad. Creating the chamfers on the bottom of the legs was fun, though. Then I weighed the leg with my luggage scale just for kicks. All four legs are done. Next: fitting the long stretchers! P.S. The post title is my general feeling after seeing my legs lying horizontally on the ground for such a long time. It’s good to see them upright!
