I finally got around to finishing an outfeed table for my Ridgid R4511 table saw. This is the first time I’ve had a dedicated outfeed table (or a table saw with a fence extension either) so it was really nice to use it for cutting sheets of plywood. I basically stole the idea from this guy: http://www.ridgidforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=29941 And he basically stole it from here: http://sawsndust.com/p-outfeed.htm But this is what mine turned out like:. . ...
Not a woodworking blog per se, but then again I believe in a holistic universe where everything involves working with wood :) I haven’t been in the shop for awhile, I have my boys this week for a portion of their summer vacation. I bought a raft last year so that we can “enjoy” the natural resources that surround us and we went out for our second outing yesterday. Lesson learned – Look up the phone number that tells you the readings from the river gauge BEFORE you g...
I am going to buy a lathe and have narrowed it down to 3 or 4 MIDI lathes. DELTA 46-46-, JET 1220 and GENERAL INTERNATIONAL 25-200M1. There are plenty reviews on line for the DELTA and JET but very few for the GI.Anybody have any recomendations or experience with any of these?
Just a short notice… number of our active forums has just increased to nine. I’ve added a new one: Wood & LumberDifferent wood requires different woodworking strategies – from cutting to finishing. Share your tips and challenges here in the Wood & Lumber Forum. Thanks to Wiley for coming up with this idea.I really have no clue why I didn’t add this forum long time ago ;) Enjoy!
On the 3rd David Craig and Rick Kruse came to my house to help clean my workshop/ 2 1/2 car garage. We surely bit off more than we could handle in a days time. We pulled out, let me change that, David, mostly, with a little help from Rick and I, pulled most of the stuff out sorted all my wood, restacked it, moved my machines around where I could pull them out and use them, sorted my wood so I know what I have, swept, lifted, tugged, pulled, helped rip a 7’ long X 3 1/2” thick X 3 ...
Ah! One of my favorite days of the week! Fresh start. Fresh list of things to do. I hope everyone had a great weekend. I wish there were a place for personal pictures here because I would love to see pictures of where many of my buddies live. I love this site because of the diversity of the people here. I would love to see the places that others call ‘home’ and what their surroundings are like. I had to laugh yesterday because my friend who got his email stolen wrote me ...
Well I know a lot of the LJ’s are older than me. But there a lot of LJ’s younger than me. I turn 51 today. Woodworking has started making me feel younger, because of keeping me busy I guess. I only hope that I don’t slide down that hill faster if I slip on some saw dust LOL..
While this is indeed a finished project… I am posting it here in Blogs because it is not all my work…This is another collaboration .. with my good mate Col.. master boxmaker.. Col has been helping me out with the last few boxes… I have supplied the timber while he has been doing the construction and then I have been applying the hand rubbed oil finish and lining the boxes.. I prefer an oil finish over a gloss polyurethane. That is not to say I can’t make boxes ̷...

Amusing tiny back-story: I have received more than one piece of “hate mail” from persons who feel I do not do “real” woodworking because I do most of my work on CNC. Now, I don’t particularly care if anybody wants to call what I do “woodworking” or not – this is a fight I’ve fought for too many years, in many genres. (I embrace technology. A lot of artists feel this is killing art as a whole and as such, I should never be deemed an artist....
