After many months trying to decide what to buy i have ordered a Spindle Moulder c/w attachments for 1/2 router bits. i plan to Oak Panel 3 flights of stairwell in my house and need to do as professional job as i can seeing its the house. The thing that put me off the table router was the fact that none have built in hieght adjustments, Raisers !! what an after thought i think, most look less than sturdy etc and one seems to be always under the table for adjustments etc. the spindle moulder i...

Spice Box #2: Slow down!!

12-10-2008 08:30 PM by MedicKen | 2 comments »

After multiple mistakes, measure twice, cut once, swear like a sailor I have run out of walnut. Grrrr. I will have to order more and it will take a few days to get here. You would think that in CA there would be a supplier of hardwood somewhere close, NOT! Well, I will get back to it in a few days. I have learned a valuable lesson, order more material than I think I will need and maybe measure it 3 times. Thanks for the comments I have received, its nice to read the nice reponses and makes...

A Word on Shop Safety

12-10-2008 06:36 PM by Chris Wright | 5 comments »

So, we are all aware of the inherent dangers involved in woodworking, and if you are unaware of these dangers then you really need to pay attention. For those who are a little squeamish then I recommend skipping past the image, there’s some blood. Now, I’ll be the first to admit, that of all the possible things that could have happened here, I am very lucky. This happened about 2 years ago now. I was cutting a thin strip of wood on the table saw, I was using a push stick b...

more progress...slowly

12-10-2008 02:19 AM by AaronK | 0 comments »

Made some slight headway: 1) sanded the boards with 80 grit paper – getting them even this smooth is a big improvement and makes the wood look so much nicer… makes me appreciate the poplar more. 2) jointed all the edges to bring the final width of everything down to 11.02”. Egads, that was awful – I started out at around 11-3/8 and was wanting to get it all down to 11-1/4, but my calipers got screwed up. It might have been all the sawdust in the air, but they wer...

The Craftsman's Path #50: Modern Shaker Table - Making the Tapered Legs

12-10-2008 12:59 AM by Mark Mazzo | 2 comments »

With the rough stock for this table acclimated to my shop for a week or so, I started this project as I usually do, by viewing all of the stock and marking out all of the components for best grain use, etc. The first order of business was to make the tapered and splayed legs from 8/4 stock. The details along with pictures are in the latest post at my blog. Thanks for reading!

How I developed the BowlSaw

12-10-2008 12:15 AM by Steuss | 14 comments »

I’m an amateur woodturner—about 5 years experience. While turning some expensive 6” Ebony bowl blanks my thinking was “What? Why do I have to waste all that wood in the center?” And so I took almost a year to design a hand-held tool which would save that center for another bowl. My purpose was to develop a tool for amateurs that would sell for under $40 and would core 6” and 8” bowl blanks. I succeeded and I’ve made over 40 sets of bowls fr...

Lingerie Chest Sketchup Design

12-09-2008 08:59 PM by Blake | 22 comments »

Another design popped into my head yesterday and I couldn’t help Sketching it out. This is my idea for a Lingerie Chest. What do you think? I might do this one in all cherry with no contrasting woods. This would let the design speak for itself and be more subtle. I have not made any concrete decisions yet for wood choices. I don’t know when I will start this but I thought I would post the design anyway. I’m already knee-deep in projects right now. It cer...

Want to learn to turn...

12-09-2008 08:26 PM by twig | 7 comments »

I really want to learn to turn wood and want to buy a lathe. I don’t think I want a mini lathe, it would work for making hair sticks, but I might want to turn something larger. Any ideas or suggestions would be much appreciated as I really don’t know anything about it. I was looking at this one. But I don’t know what all I would need to buy with it. Are there other, better brands around the same price? Anyone want to give me some pointers so I don’t waste my ...
