how can I keep the blade on my grizzly g1022sm from lowering itself while I am trying to make a cut?
I was off today so I got a couple of hours in the shop. My first task was to attach the two pieces of the seat together. I used my “homemade” glue and pocket screws. The last time I made a chair I used pocket screws to hold the seat together; however I failed to consider the top of the chair being scooped out. This time I measured where the screws were going and then measured the depth of the indent on the model chair. I set the pocket screw depth for the finished seat. You may be abl...
Many of you have heard my whine about the size of my shop and how cold it can get here in the great white North. Well last fall I lucked out and was blessed with the privilege of using all of the facility in this community shop. Please don’t ask me were it is I am sworn to secrecy and I do not want to loose my privileges . Here are a few pictures. I decided to write this because my last project was photographed on one of the TWO Saw Stops and I know I would have had to answer a lot of ...
I have a sugar maple that’s coming down this spring and I want to have it milled into plain sawn lumber and I don’t know where to go. I live in the Evansville, Indiana metro area so if anyone has any helpful advice i am all ears. Thanks!
Okay Sorry I was busy when I posted the cutting boards earlier, here is a little more info on them.the teak and Bamboo is 29×12 1/2 and the oak and ash is 12×18. The finish is a common mineral oil to prevent any food allergies, and the bamboo is recycled flooring. Most of my boards are a standard 3/4 inches in thickness but a few (like the ash/oak) are 1 1/4 inches thick. I have done a couple that are 2” but not a lot of call around here for them at that thickness. I have a fe...
Today I finished the lacewood lock. I applied 4 coats of Arm R Seal. Over all I am happy with it. This is the first time I used lacewood and I liked using it.This is also my first time trying inlay. The inlay is made of bubinga and the shackle and buttons are walnut. I hope this helps all of you that asked about my other locks.
Time to wrap this up!!The other day I finished putting the Clasp on, cutting the pins, filing, sanding…All that’s left is a final going over and inspection, sanding, and then some more sanding before the finishing is applied…Here’s with the Polyurethane that’s been applied so far… I may be at this all week…I’m getting antsy to pull the paper off and see how it looks!!It’ll probably be another week before the flag is in it and it’s re...
Ok, with a week of decent weather the boys are back at work. The sheathing on the roof is up, and now they have started to shingle. I’ve decided to put in a couple of sun tubes I think the brand is Velux with 10” tube. I’m hoping they will provide some nice natural light during the day. My first major purchase in tools has been done. I’ve ordered a Laguan tools, 5 in 1 combination machine. I’ll have it delivered in June when the shop is more or less ready ...
As I was reading SPalm’s post about PDF files, it reminded me of something I do that might be of use to some of you. I’m sure most of you keep all your tool manuals and parts lists. I do too, but when I needed to refresh my memory about something covered in the manual – or wanted to look up a part number – I found digging it out of the file, using it, and putting it back was more time consuming than I wanted it to be. Now I keep all that information in my computer...
Hey everybody! I just thought I’d start a blog about my experiences on this journey we are constantly on of getting our woodworking education. (As I write this entry I’m sitting in the car, in the parking lot of a Del Taco restaurant, in Indio, California.) I am at a crucial crossroads in my life right now; I’ve recently gotten married, I don’t have much school done, and I need to choose a career to support my wife and I as well as our future children… As...
