Walnut and Birch ply T.V. stand #4: finished the T.V. stand

08-03-2009 11:50 PM by woodnut | 5 comments »

I had started this as a blog to try and show how I made this T.V. stand, but time kind of got away from me and did not finish taking the pics. This did take longer for me to make than I thought it would (especially the wife), but it is finished now and in the house. Here are some pics in its final resting spot. Hope you like, and if you see anything that I could have or should have done different let me know thats the only way for use to learn. Thanks in advance.

Slide show

08-03-2009 11:15 PM by Jay Neale III | 21 comments »

So I created a slide show to show off some of my work to potential clients. You can see it here… actually you can see it nowhere, and I’d remove this blog post if that were possible. Seriously, I’m sorry to have wasted everybody’s time. I will continue to add comments below, though. Comments from people without an agenda, without an attitude problem. Comments about the slide show itself, from people who have no idea there is any controversy whatsoever surrounding it...

A birthday gift for someone very special, what to do?

08-03-2009 07:37 PM by dbhost | 4 comments »

On the 7th day he rested. So I took a hint. Now back to the salt mines as it were. As the shop cleanup and remodeling progresses, my brain is spinning into upcoming gifting seasons, with birthdays and Christmas, and what to do for my lovely bride… I keep sitting down with pen and paper, and even the computer and sketchup and the designs I put down, well… I get to a point where I realize I don’t like the way it is coming out… The questions are what to build, and f...

Dust collector system

08-03-2009 07:06 PM by Clement | 6 comments »

I started out with, what I believe is a 1.5 HP Jet from Low’s. I originally hooked up to router table, with flex, 4 in. Well Here is my Dust colector set up at the presrnt time. I know that it can be improved upon, so I will welcome all suggestions for improvement. I decided to add a few tools, and thought that I would run some 4 in. pvc around the back wall. Please excuse the formating of this blog, as you can see, I am just in the learning stages of this new...

Planer depth gauge

08-03-2009 04:51 PM by hootr | 1 comment »

Digital gauge for Woodmaster 718 Planer/Moulder/Sander Allthough it is close I wasn’t satisfied with the “count the turns method” for setting depth. I added a digital planer gauge from Wixey to my 718 a couple years ago.I had to build my own bracket to install it but now Woodmaster is selling one for about $70. It allows me to set up to within .001” accuracy and cut my change over time between operations by a bunch. This is the li...

Man, I can’t beleive I made my first posting almost 2 years ago…time flies when you work to much…and have kids…and move… I purchased a bunch of wood more than a year ago…sound familiar…and finally decided last week that it was time to get back at it. I had purchased about 40 bdft of Cypress to build a couple of adirondack chairs. I had plans, I had templates…I had the wood…time to get going. I went down to my “workshop”...

turnings #4: A bowl from that fallen Jacaranda wood

08-03-2009 02:35 PM by Gary Fixler | 9 comments »

This past Wednesday, all in the span of an hour lunch break, I ran home, cut a chunk off the end of one of the Jacaranda logs from my recent haul, resealed the main log with Anchorseal and washed out the brush. Sliced the chunk in half through the pith, and turned one into a thin-walled, simple bowl, took a quick shower, and brought the resultant piece back to show off at work. Amazing what can happen in one hour! The turning itself took less than 15 minutes! I’m getting faster, if not ...

Bandsaw Box Bandit #3: Attempt #2, the saw is fixed

08-03-2009 02:00 PM by Walnut_Weasel | 1 comment »

Well I finally made a trip to Woodcraft and purchased some zero-clearance made by Carter. All and all I am pretty happy with them. $10 for 3 inserts and they fit well. However what I quickly learned about zero-clearance inserts is that they do tend to impact the removal of saw dust. There was a LOT more dust on the table of the bandsaw than when I was not using the inserts; but overall they performed as expected. I have the box completely cut out and rough sanded and glued. All that i...
