I got these drawers fitted before I closed up for the winter: This is the first time I’ve done inset drawers, and it was a bit easier than the hell I’d imagined it to be. The weather was already pretty cold and dry when I fit these though, so I assume they’ll swell in the spring. I haven’t glued them up just in case. I did learn something though. Having cut the dovetails on all the very close but not yet fitted parts, I was able to shave the bottoms of th...
I needed to find the center of the edge of board tonight so I figured I’d toss together a Center Locator Tool and document my process. You’ve all seen these 100 x before but this is how I make them. It should be noted that the overall dimensions are not critical at all. We’re going to be using the fact that the radius of a circle is the always the same. My dowels are about 3” apart You can click on the pictures for larger versions. Remember that the pics don&...
I favored this video on my Youtube channel,I thought my fellow LumberJocks might like to see how they turn wood in Hawaii.
This clock was made to scroll saw .J ‘ve used the oak.Les applied its maple with a spice stain. This clock is a great project for a beginner like me.
My sons gave me some gift cards for Lowes for Christmas, so I went to Lowes on Friday. I was wondering around looking at every tool they had. I saw the Delta bandsaws on clearence. My wife said to go ahead and get one. She gave the extra cash to me to get it. I put the bandsaw together with no problems. It runs great but has a little vibration that kinda bothers me, but I am going to try to get a new belt I think should take some of the vibration away. I hope to sell my old bandsaw this summe...
and I mean literally – we’ve had a snow storm here, and the garage is covered with more than a foot of snow. It was blazing outside and the high winds were blowing snow all over the place. my garage is unheated, but neither of those stopped me from making the most I could with an open window of time I got this weekend. I caved in, and ordered an Incra router plate for the top when they just posted the phenolic version on sale for $35 (they had a 10% off last week). I really ...
The Magnetic Switched Failed in my TS… I was like ok Ill make some jigs and use my hand saw and it took me most of yesterday and today to rip the Dado’s for the back of the cabinet and cut two fricking shelves. You would think the birthday boy of Xmas would get a better shake.. but NO… The Saw was fine when I trued up the ply for the T_Jig to make the dado’s and then After I was happy with it I was going to true a piece of (OLD really 3/4” ply) for the foo...
"Why is This Car Parked in My Shop?" Turning My One Car Garage Into A Shop #1: Moving the Hand Tools In...Installing A French Cleat System
So, I spent all summer building a barn, so I can move all the junk out of my garage, so I can buy a real cabinet saw, jointer, band saw, and drill press and have the room to leave them all reasonably set up so I don’t have to do the Harlem Shuffle every time I want to use a tool…(whew!) And wouldn’t you know it…the wife wants to park her car in the middle of my shop. More about that later…much later! So, I bought my Unisaw and built my out feed tableSo now I need...
I didn’t’ take a picture (edit—but I went out and took one just now) of it but I made a quick jig of a piece of 48”x6”1/4 left over and a scrap same width as my “TRUE” wood edge (need a piece of the REAL wood not metric or 1/16ish off crap they sell) the JIG is essentially a “T” that is nailed true to square… The photo got cropped a bit but look to the right and you will see the routed out 3/4 Dado in the jig that is the “s...
OK Since I was Aiming for the past few holiday weekends to get alot more shop time I went to the BOX store and bought 10.. of 3/4”x8”x8’...
