i figured that i would start up just a little blog for my shop updates. instead of having a different one for each of the things that i make for my shop i will have one blog and blog about all of them. it may not always be consistent like i am putting in plans for my tablesaw station now but i might not start it for another month and might blog about something else in between but whatever. so now on to my plans for my table saw station. so here is the overall view here is the top. i...
I have a window AC unit and I want to install it in/thru the wall of my shop, conventional 2×4 wood stick framing. Does anyone have ideas/links to share about an installation of this type – framing, trimming inside and outside (outside is vinyl siding), and any other info? Thanks in advance!
I have added enough entries to my blog http://dorsetcustomfurniture.blogspot.com/ to warrant a ‘table of contents’ where you can see at a glance what tips or projects might be interesting to you and where they might be located in the 40+ entries I have made to it over the past 7 months. Enjoy.
We use Carbide Tipped Saw Blades for our wood veneer edgebanding cutting machines. The blades cost $170.00 each.Some of our blades have lost the Carbide on the tips, and our sharpening company says that they cannot sharpen them. So they are not able to be used. Does anyone know of a company that can replace the carbide on saw blades? and… What would the process be called? Thanks!
Please don’t be too critical on this one. This was my first video and also my first attempt to inset an inlay. I had a lot of hours in this table and was very nervous. You may ask, “Why the inlay”. I just wanted an accent. - – Skip – -
I built this jig, so I could mate two curved surfaces and have a clean glue joint. I used it on a dining table. I will post pictures of the table shortly. —Skip—
Yesterday I cut the curves in the apron and the tapers in the legs. I just bent a stick between two blocks for the long curve and marked it: I used a bowed stick with a string to mark the smaller arc: I made the cuts on the bandsaw and left a hair extra: Then the curves were trimmed right down to the line on the R.O. sander: In this photo you can barely see the lines I drew for the “recess” drop-down for the sewing machine. Well, this is h...
Someone asked me to post this video on this site, so here we go. It is my idea of how to sharpen a cabinet scraper. If I am all wet, please let me know.
Been touching up the sander every day since this saturday. Electolisis removed all the gunk, rust and paint. Followed by hand brushing with brass brushes. Then I applied a hair drier to ensure that it was completely dried, then degreased again (hand gunk) with acetone. Hung and sprayed a couple pieces at a time. Last touch up shots for thin areas where applied this morning, new fasteners are on order to finish the job. The “originals” are a mix of replacement styles. Al...
Hi! Everyone,I am trying to convert a video that I have shot on my video camera for uploading to the site. My question is, What is the best program to purchase in order to get my video to load as a complete video instead of breaking it down into short segments? I know that the videos I see everyone uploading here are not segmented. Thanks for any help you can give. The next post that I make will probably interest most of the members. Thanks again!God bless
