A Simple Sled

02-01-2010 06:57 PM by Maclegno | 8 comments »

I made this sometime ago from a photo in a magazine (possibly FWW) If I remember correctly the style was New England. It still doesn’t have steel runners. I made it years ago with a wee girl in mind, daughter of a friend, she’s now over 20. Must speed up my work-rate.The woods are Ash and Beech..

Changing Blades with a Laguna Tools Drift Master Fence #2: Changing Blades with a Laguna Tools Drift Master Fence

02-01-2010 06:31 PM by woodywoodworker | 1 comment »

(To continue from my last post #1). I see from the comments of my first post many of you have run into this problem of getting the doors open when changing blades. So after much research and trying every thing here are the best methods I have come up with. The first way, which many of you probably know from talking to a Laguna Rep is to tilt the table. That will allow you to get the bottom door past the fence so you can get it open to change your blades out. The Second way, which is my ...

Double Dovetail Box #5: Assembling the box and Starting the top

02-01-2010 07:52 AM by Don | 4 comments »

Everything about the double dovetail joint is complete. I hope it was cear enough for folks to make their own. Feel free to bug me with questions if you didn’t follow. In summary, it’s just a bunch of half blind joints using a corner piece with the grain perpendicular to the sides. From here on out it’s just another box but I’ll continue to post shots as I go. Yesterday I lightly sanded the shellac that I previously applied to the inside surfaces of all pieces. Then...

For the following project, I received some requests for more information and plans. I finally got around to learning Google SketchUp this weekend and drew these up. Let me know of any improvements needed please. It was built around the flag I received on the way out, which was 3’ x 5’.This goes out to any and all in hopes it’ll be used for other veterans.Textured: http://far...

Great Tool Buys #1: Super Tool Buy!

02-01-2010 06:50 AM by BRAY | 6 comments »

Last Monday, while searching for a biscuit jointer I decided to visit a local pawn shop. There it was, a Dewalt DW682K. It had been used once, maybe twice. It had a $75 price sticker on it. After seeing them selling for around $200, I decided to buy it. I’m glad I did; it works great.

Router Table #13: Leveling the Insert - Incra Style

02-01-2010 06:18 AM by PurpLev | 10 comments »

Up until now I was leveling my insert (also on my TS) with blue painters tape – yeah, ghetto, but it works, cheap, and available. When I made the order with Lee Valley last week, I ordered a pack of 10 capscrews and though I’d try to incorporate the leveling concept on the Incra made table. as I stated in my previous post- If I had to start it over, I’d just order the table top from Incra and be done with it – they are worth their price. however. since I already had...

Machinist Chest #2: Case Assembly and Drawer Installation

02-01-2010 06:03 AM by DocK16 | 6 comments »

Worked on this new project over the weekend and have to say this is alot tougher than I thought it was going to be. Tolerances are very tight. Some cuts for the drawers have to be within 1/32th or the gaps between the drawers are crooked. Thank heaven for micro adjust on the Incra router fence. Alot of do-overs on the drawers which was frustrating as I tried to cut all the drawer fronts from one piece to get a good grain match, which means if you screw up one drawer you have to redo all 7...

Extremely Average #30: Henry Wood Detective Agency: Monday Morning

02-01-2010 05:50 AM by Ecocandle | 7 comments »

Sunday had been relaxing. Henry spent the day finishing his dado jig for his router. He was starting to get comfortable using the router and was able to create a straight edge, then from that, square up the jig. He could hardly believe it when he put the square on each corner and they were all at 90 degrees. What a rush. After he finished the jig and photographed it for posterity he relaxed a bit and bought a new case journal. He jotted down a few of his thoughts. Jan 2, 1955...
