Saving The Buffalo

09-26-2009 03:19 AM by ChuckV | 9 comments »

I picked up an old Buffalo 18 drill press on Craigslist for $75. This was made by the Buffalo Forge Co. They did not put serial numbers on these machines. There is a User’s Guide for this drill on OWWM that was published in 1957, so my drill must be from around that time. The drill was located in an auto body shop not too far from my house. When I arrived and said I was there to see Paul about a drill press, I heard, “I’m Paul. I will show you the drill press…s...

Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw #9: Saving the top

09-26-2009 02:25 AM by Bothus | 9 comments »

First let me say I’m not very impressed with I couldn’t order online because of a technical problem on their website so I called the Service Center in Anaheim, CA. They were great on the phone, very nice and polite, took the order and told me I should have it in 5-7 business days. That was only 4 days ago so I didn’t expect it yet but I called this morning just get a tracking number in case it was on the truck for delivery and I wasn’t going t...

Craigs list lumber find

09-26-2009 02:04 AM by eastside | 2 comments »

I answered a for sale add for 4 pine boards 3” X 20” x 96” each for $100.00 When I got their 2 of the boards were only 11 inches wide and the seller wasn’t coming down on the price at all so I took them all for the $100.00 . When I got them home it was obvious they weren’t all pine by the weight. As it turns out the two narrower boards were 3 inch thick Maple! Last year I picked up some used Red wood that i made my deck railling with from Craigslist. ...

Why Are You So Expensive?

09-25-2009 09:19 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 41 comments »

This is the question that I run into all the time when I bid jobs. Today I picked up materials for a small job and I mulled over this question as I stood staring at the cargo in my truck. Three boards of cherry and one sheet of 1/4” mdf core cherry… $217. Well, at least I got the job. Peace, Love, & Woodworking

Greene & Greene #3: Completion of the Fireplace

09-25-2009 08:58 PM by Sam Yerardi | 3 comments »

I started by building the platform upon which everything else would rest. I chose the height of the deck based on leaving enough room for the pegs and the lines to be seen clearly. I didn’t want to crowd anything. In classical architecture there is what is known as ‘orders’. Many books and theories have been written regarding these, and the structures of these orders can be seen in period furniture as well. Greene & Greene furniture is no different. Basically, pieces are designed ...

constantly refining your skills

09-25-2009 12:09 PM by 559dustdesigns | 3 comments »

I feel I am getting more confident in my ability to do woodworking. Being able to visualize my projects and have a real concept of what it will take to finish the next step or even the whole project, is very helpful to me. Trying something new that you think may just work perfectly, I have learned so much with this approach. You may surprise yourself. When I’m frustrated with the way things are going, having the ability to set that task aside and complete another part is very helpful. O...
