Scroll Saw Stand #1: Building materials and stand top

03-06-2010 06:18 PM by David Craig | 10 comments »

The trash man giveth and the trash man taketh away…. That would seem to sum up most of my woodworking experiences so far :) At any rate, I pulled the trigger on a new Dewalt scroll saw. I have been using a cheaper model for some time and I made do but wanted to work with something a little nicer and get those compound cuts and fretwork moving. I have been using my bench for awhile, but wanted a dedicated stand for this one. I downloaded a free plan from Wood awhile back and was going...

Octagon Gaming Table #2: Chess board

03-06-2010 05:35 PM by Roger Gaborski | 1 comment »

I have purchased all the lumber necessary for construction of the table. I decided to make the chess board first. I first cut strips of maple and walnut to approximately 3/8” thick on the bandsaw. To minimize slippage during gluing I glued up each pair individually, Followed by cleaning up some of the glue and then gluing all the strips together, I then cut the glued up board and flipped every other strip to form the chess board. Here’s a close up o...

Where to start….I just wanted to post a little info about myself….Been here about three months and haven’t posted any projects or any real info about myself at all. I’m sure there’s been a few instances where people are saying to themselves…who is this clown? LOL!! I’m not real big on talking about myself…or showing off my work, but thought I should post a little something to show I’m really not a clown! ;o) Lets see….Been a woodw...

Reclaiming Antique Oak

03-06-2010 03:27 PM by chrisstef | 6 comments »

So as a demolition contractor (the job that pays the mortgage) and a wood working hobbyist (the job that keeps me sane) i have been privliged enough to get my hands on some great lumber. My most recent score is some antique red / black oak dating back to the late 1800’s from what i could gather. I took home my first piece to be denailed, a monster 5/4×18” x 32”. Unfortunately it had quite a crook down the middle and i had to sacrifice it and rip the crook out of it l...

Evolution of a Shop #8: HFDC Upgrade

03-06-2010 03:04 PM by Cory | 8 comments »

I have been wanting to get a trash can separator for my Harbor Freight dust collector since I bought it. I still don’t have the separator built, but I did make a great improvement to the unit, IMHO. I’m sure many of you have seen the stovepipe mod, or the Delta collector with room underneath the blower for a separator where the motor and the ring are in line. I wanted to try the same thing on the HFDC. The challenge is that the DC motor is really heavy and I wanted to keep th...

Updated Shop Pics

03-06-2010 07:54 AM by NBeener | 43 comments »

Looking at all the shops of the new LJs (and many of the old ones) got me inspired. So … the camera and I made a trip downstairs. Here’s where it stands. I think I’ve taken tremendous liberties with the notion that every new project demands a new tool. I think I’m working with a ratio of closer to 20-to-1 :-) Thanks for stopping by! What I look like … when I’m not there… The same old grind…. Whenever they mention the town of ...

Today I bought 2 Bd.Ft. of lacewood for another lock. I also bought a small piece of bubinga for a inlay. I have never worked with lacewood or made a inlay before, so hopefully I will learn something new. I am hoping to photograph the lock as I make it. Today I finished the calf roping stand for my son. He picked it up before I could get a pic of it.
