shop router upgrade

08-13-2010 08:47 PM by JuniorJoiner | 5 comments »

I have mostly been a hand tool guy. So many hand planes and chisels and saws, but I had a reason.Most of my obsession for hand tools came from my daily morphine use, I didn’t trust myself to use power tools much of the time, and things can go bad with power tools much faster. Well, after some serious schooling, and some medication changes, I am accepting power into the shop. the latest of which being routers. I was most timid around routers due to their high rpm, and carbide cutters usu...

A journey of a 1000 books begins with a single shelf...sort of.

08-13-2010 05:11 PM by Kerry Drake | 1 comment »

It has been unusually hot and humid here for the past few weeks with a couple breaks in the weather recently.  The small air conditioner in my shop does an admirable job of keeping things bearable, but only if I give it a 2 hour head start to get things under control.  This means really no work on the really hot days after I get home from my day job. I have been working, slowly, on a new set of built in bookshelves in our home office.  I had some nice simple plans in one of ...

Jointing without a jointer

08-13-2010 04:53 PM by Brokewood | 15 comments »

Hi everyone,I seem to have bitten off more than I can chew. I’ve decided to build a coffee table for my living room,I’ve made plans and all – I went and bought the lumber, even had it planed and ready to go.Thing is, I forgot to ask them to run it through a jointer… Now, I can always swallow my pride, go back and ask them to use their jointer but I kind of don’t want to.I’ve decided to make this into a learning experience and try jointing without a jointer....

Dealing with an Oryctolagus cuniculus problem

08-13-2010 04:00 PM by KnickKnack | 16 comments »

Catchy title, yes? When we bought our house and 2 hectares (c 5 acres) 2 years ago, the guy we bought it from used to keep rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) and hares. They are free range – the entire property has a rabbit & fox proof fence buried in concrete around the border.It’s nice to watch them frolicking around – especially the hares – but, rabbits being rabbits we now have quite a lot of them. We try to keep weeds around, and water some of the grass, but i...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #71: "The Great Blackberry Fiasco"

08-13-2010 01:55 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I’m going to start out this story with telling you that it doesn’t have to do with woodworking. Besides the bit of painting the wooden figurines in the evening, I just haven’t gotten very far in the wood department this week. It isn’t because I haven’t tried. My intentions were good and I was on quite a roll when I was going and it just seems that since I took that small break after finishing the candle trays and ornaments, I need to get back into a good worki...

My comment total will be the #1 spot soon

08-13-2010 11:21 AM by Ken90712 | 28 comments »

So as I was looking over the Lumber Jocks List and noticed A1jim has over 36,000 comments, I just shook my head in amazement. I hit 1900 this week, so I figured out how long it would take for me to take over the #1 spot! Of course this is just an estimate, and without knowing how many Jim will post I will assume he will not post any more until I catch up for the sake of being polite! LOL SO I’m only 34,741 comments behind which = If I post 20 comments per day = 41,688 hrs = 1737 d...

Quick post to show the hand cut ebony inlay. After reading the latest FWW I’m inspired to make some ebony wedges for the stretcher which should match the vertical lines of the inlay.

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #4: Carcass Installed

08-13-2010 06:44 AM by RonPeters | 4 comments »

Here’s the carcass installed. I oiled it the same as the bench. Sanded it a little to knock off the fuzz. I didn’t finish it all out as this is just a box for storage. Next is to make the door for the left side and drawers for the right The vise is completed. It has about a 3” throat because the dog block thickness is also about 3”. It probably should be closer to the left edge, but I don’t plan to be cutting anything – got a chop saw for that. Mo...
