Cool deals #2: Finding the sales on Amazon

2220 days ago by flink | 0 comments »

Hi, All of us probably checkout the Friday sales at the Tool Bin. But did you know that Amazon has an RSS feed that has super deals? Only problem is that it is an “Everything” feed. I came across a page today that describes how to take the Amazon rss feed and then use a free service from Feed Sifter to filter the Amazon feed for the stuff you want. All you need to do is paste in the URL in the Amazon rss feed and then enter some filter terms “tool, power” “...

Router Table #1: A router table for use with Incra Accessoriess

2220 days ago by Lee A. Jesberger | 26 comments »

I guess about ten years ago I made a second router table for certain applications. Mostly it was to be used with Incra jigs and accessories. This table is a little fancier than the last one I posted ands does have a few advantages. For example there is no back to this cabinet. Both sides have the same door arrangement, so accessing the router is easier to make height adjustments. Also there is a lot of bit storage in the four vertical pull outs. These too can be pulled out to either ...

Router Table Fence #1: It's not pretty but...

2220 days ago by Lee A. Jesberger | 12 comments »

About twenty some years ago I bought a professional door making router bit set made by Freud. Included in the set, which I still own and use even after making hundreds of doors with it, was plans for a router fence. I bought the set for the first set of raised panel doors I made. The doors were for another contractor, and he needed them pretty quickly. After seeing the plans I realized I could make good use of a fence like that. It had the same adjustments as a shaper fence. The left an...

Power Tools, What a Mess!

2221 days ago by Eric | 0 comments »

Well I finally decided to get rid of my one remaining power tool, a 2HP Ryobi router with 3 bases and a case of bits. Today I fired it up and ran it over a board with a few different bits just to test it out, and I probably created more sawdust in ten minutes than I have in the past six months with hand tools. Now I see why you guys fuss so much over dust extraction! Man oh man. So anyway, I’ve posted an ad for my router over in the Forums, so go check it out if you’re inter...

Dovetail Box #20: Finishing Fun

2221 days ago by Eric | 2 comments »

Well, after my last post I decided to back up a step. I sanded down a bit with 360 grit, and then without thinking I wiped the whole thing down with mineral spirits to make sure the sawdust was all gone. About halfway through doing that, I realized that I was also stripping off whatever finish I had already had on the box (or at least much of it)! Hah. Oh well, could be worse, right? So I went with Marc recommendation to use a straight wiping varnish with a 50/50 mixture of varnish (I boug...

Endgrain Floors #1: New Project

2221 days ago by suebee | 13 comments »

My son is getting ready to start cutting the tiles for an endgrain floor in our kitchen. It is going to be a huge project but I was really interested in getting any feedback from any one who has any experience with this. I saw what Tom Porter did and it seems like we are on the right track we just havea few obstacles to get through like leveling out the floor once we tear the old out. Do anyone know if we have to put the the plyboard over the subfloor? I know we have to have a vapor layer bu...

Marquetry #1: An age old craft

2221 days ago by Lee A. Jesberger | 8 comments »

Hi all; After reading Douglas’s blog on marquetry I figured I would add a few comments about the fine art of marquetry. Rather than do a lot of typing here, it’s easier to just provide a link to the page on my site. I’ve always been a bit lazy. This is listed under the scroll saw index, as well as the veneering index. I hope it provides some additional information for anyone wanting to give this a try. ...

My first attempt at restoring.

2221 days ago by irishhandyman | 5 comments »

After spilling coffee on this I desided it was time to attempt to refinish this piece of furniture.It was brought to this house in a covered wagon around 1920. It’s a shame it can’t talk because it has seen a lot of history.Now I cant take credit for all the stains that has befallen it. I have to admit I had my fair shareof mishaps, but not all. I’ll leave that for other family members. I could tell from what little of the grain that was able to be seen, that it was oak....
