Table Saw Renovation

08-10-2010 06:22 PM by DenverDave | 10 comments »

I’m in the process of building a woodworking shop. I picked up a few tools for some minor jobs and decided to make it a hobby, but with the recession, money is tight, so Craigslist is my number one shopping venue. Here is the table saw I picked up and am in the process of restoring. It came from a high school wood shop. It was a little too ugly and rusty to use, so I cleaned it up and painted it. This is what it looks like now: It still needs a bit of work. The height a...

Daily Update #77: August 10, 2010

08-10-2010 04:07 PM by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

What’s happening in the shop for August 10, 2010. Working various stages of 4 murphy beds for Stevens, Komusi, Connell, and Schneider. Going to try and be more efficient and build them in pairs and rotate the stages. Leaving for IWF in a couple weeks and have lots to do before that time. For missed video and building pictures see my Current Projects link at or Watch us live:

Myrtle Anniversary Shaker Table #11: The Legs (Thanks for the Tip DenverDave)

08-10-2010 01:39 PM by DoctorDan | 4 comments »

The legs. I’ve debated the leg long and hard. Thought of steam bending, bent lamination, straight grain timber, and combinations of the above. In the end I decided to join two pieces to maximize long grain strength… which of course means a joint in the middle. After making a template, rough cutting and machining the piece, I then used a jigsaw to cut a closer but still rough outline of the leg. Using a chisel, a marking knife and some patients I outlined my cuts. ...

Just for Fun... #28: Sawdust Update...

08-10-2010 01:30 PM by littlecope | 13 comments »

I went up to the Folk’s house once again last week to mow the lawn… but it didn’t need it. We’ve had very little rain and are in the “Dog Days” of summer when the grass slows down anyway…So, to pass the time, I combed through the wood stashes that are there… It seems I’ve inherited a pretty large supply of woods (at least for me!).Aside from the pallet full of cribbing blocks, there are various other piles, like this one which is mostly Oa...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #68: Pushing the Pile

08-10-2010 01:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Well, I am late out of the gate today. It was one of those nights that I guess I would call ‘eventful’ and I guess it was by choice that I slept in a bit. I had my ‘rain legs’ on all day yesterday. By that I mean that I get a certain achy feel in my legs before a storm. This isn’t a old thing for me. It has happened since I was a teen. It could be bright and sunny out and not a cloud in the sky and I knew that within the next 24 hours that it would storm....

bandsaw #1: pulled the BS trigger...hmm,that sounds weird

08-10-2010 06:29 AM by twokidsnosleep | 7 comments »

Darn, I didn’t win the Laguna 18” saw from their summer contest. So after poking around Craig’s List and local tool shops with no real inspiration I ordered a new band-saw online tonight. I went for the Griz GO555P and ordered a mobile base, a riser kit and a re-saw fence. While I was at it I got a small wall mount Shop Fox air filter as I am tying to control the dust in the garage. My little guy said the square 17” saw looks better, but it is too big, too much $ an...

Coloring Wood using DecoArt Staining medium #1: Experimentation: How to color wood using Decoart staining medium

08-10-2010 05:35 AM by gurnie | 6 comments »

Experimentation: How to color wood using Decoart staining medium So I am working on some intarsia Christmas ornaments that I will display at a Christmas show in December. I ran into the situation of having “odd” colored ornaments; I would stack cut some cardinals out of bloodwood and walnut and i’d end up with some great blood wood cardinals but then i’d have the opposite birds: walnut cardinals. Should i leave them the way i made them or should i try to make the...
