Clamps and other things

03-08-2009 09:09 AM by DaleM | 14 comments »

As I’m heading down to my basement at almost 2 in the morning (or is it almost 3? damned daylight savings time) to un-clamp one glue-up and clamp another I can only marvel at my own procrastination. I don’t know how many times over the years that I’ve wished I had more clamps or I’ve had many parts ready for gluing at one time but had to do them sequentially (spelled it right after only two tries) due to a shortage of clamps. Throughout those years I’ve bought ...

Garage Re-Do #17: Super Sucker Cleanup

03-08-2009 06:16 AM by MyOldGarage | 1 comment »

Ok—I’m not going to argue the virtues of the dust collection in modern psychosis treatment . . . but my therapy session is all about cutting up wood. Hmm . . . I’m on the Lumberjocks site so I guess I’m in the right place. :-) My first order of business was making sure I was properly protected. I was cutting the wood outside to boot on a nice windy day . . . that helped. Gotta love 70 degree days! (I’m smiling under that dust mask!) The first ord...

Router Question...Recommendation

03-08-2009 06:15 AM by Matthew Archibald | 13 comments »

So I’m working on a box, just a small box and I’d planned on doing dovetails and the whole 9 yards. But my dads old craftsman router crapped out. In the next coming months i’m looking to pick up a more modern and sturdy router. The most bang for my buck. Honestly I don’t know much about this market. Do i go with a PorterCable router and just get the most amperage/hp router i can afford?? So yeah if anybody out there has a recommendation on a good soild router totally s...

The Super Sled #2: VIDEO - Mitering and Crosscut Sled

03-08-2009 05:17 AM by John Nixon | 21 comments »

To download a measured drawing or to see the full photo gallery, click here: Project Description: I just completed a two part video series on how I made my new table saw sled. I’ve named the new sled the “Super Sled”. The Super Sled combines two of my best shop jigs! I love my original crosscut sled, so when the voters at Eagle Lake asked me to make a video about how to make that s...

Roubo #1: Wherein our protagonist drinks the crazy juice, and decides to use 4/4 lumber.

03-08-2009 04:19 AM by Jon3 | 4 comments »

So brief background is that about a 18 months ago, I bought a load of lumber off ebay. While there, I ended up also buying 350 BF of flatsawn white ash for $100. I figured, even if it ends up being ‘test’ pieces and shop projects, it would still be worth it. Fast forward to recently, and I’ve been planning to build a new bench, and I’ve pretty much decided on a Roubo. I picked up the lovely Benchcrafted tail/wagon vise, a german bench screw, and some holdfasts. ...

A Grounded Discussion on Dust Collection Ductwork - Take #2

03-08-2009 04:05 AM by Lenny | 15 comments »

This is take #2 on my dust collection ductwork install. Here is the link to my initial blog on this project: “DC-Take #1” First, a recap. The space I chose to locate my dust collector (DC) left it in the middle of the 6” ductwork, which I installed at ceiling level. This meant I needed a joint (fitting) that allowed the two sides to meet and enter the separator and DC. I couldn’t find an appropriate 6” fitting but found a 4” doubl...

Greene inspired Night Stand #22: Top finished and Mounting Drawer Runners and Kickers

03-08-2009 02:10 AM by ChicoWoodnut | 11 comments »

I’m getting ready to finally wrap this up. I finished the tops and made Drawer runners and kickers. Here is a jpg of the top from the sketchup model. I milled up the kickers then glued and screwed them to the sides of the case. I also drilled holes for mounting the top. I made some drawer runners and screwed them to the drawer member. The front of the runner is dadoed into the front of the drawer with a half lap. Note the taper on the front of the slot for easy ...

Shop done. Let's build something #2: Cabinet framed

03-08-2009 01:55 AM by Craftsman on the lake | 2 comments »

Ok, My first cabinet. I decided on loose tenon joinery. I discovered a site for a good jig that was easy to make and it seems to work. I’ve got all my oak jointed/cut/and planed. Today I made my mortises with router and jig and glued up the front face of the cabinet. This cabinet will be a corner cabinet 42” tall and about 25 wide on the face. it will have two ogee raised panel doors. Next up will be the back of the cabinet. Not too much of an issue as it won’t show. I’...

whats your opinion?

03-08-2009 01:00 AM by JoshO | 5 comments »

I am going to make a box type pool cue case and I can’t decide what type of wood I want to make it out of. I will be looking for 2 pieces at 5/4 or 4/4 about ~30 inches long. Currently I plan on pocket milling the inside and lining with some kind of foam. I know this can be very basic or exotic, and I am looking for ideas for wood type. The real question would be, if you were to make one, what would you make it out of?
