Drill Powered Table Crank for a Drill Press/Pillar Drill

06-08-2018 11:16 PM by Dan Thomas | 2 comments »

I wanted to build a new drill press table, but the crank on my drill press that raises and lowers the table gets in the way, and I end up having to cut out part of the table. Like this: So I made a crank extension with a right-angle adapter that allows me to use my drill to raise and lower the table: If you want to learn more, check out my YouTube video. Feel free to ask questions, or post comments! Or go directly to the video:

Split Top Roubo Bench From Southern Yellow Pine, Part 1

06-08-2018 06:36 PM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I built this Split top roubo style woodworking bench out of affordable lumber from the home center. The benchcrafted tail vise and leg vise were not so affordable but definitely worth the investment. This work bench is solid, heavy and great for hand tool woodworking. I used the benchcrafted plans as a guide but had to change some dimensions since i used dimensional southern yellow pine from the home center. I also used Popular woodworking magazine’s issue #191 for a guide to cut the do...

Having a win with a broken thicknesser

06-08-2018 08:34 AM by Woodworkingbythebay | 2 comments »!! About 3 weeks ago a purchased a second hand Ryobi thicknesser (one of the green ones) model RAP1500G from a bloke who said it hadn’t done much work. Unfortunatly for him when he tried to give me a demonstration the drive belt perished and the high adjustment sounded like a broken coffee grinder. I ended up buying it for a heavily discounted price of $75. Here in Australia these planers retail for $549 so ...

Almost Down And Out

06-08-2018 04:21 AM by WoodTom | 5 comments »

A lot has changed…. I’ve beat Cancer again. This one almost took me out. I’m up! I’m alive! and I’m back at it! I almost forgot I was still listed here. I’ve been back in the shop and have started in a new direction with my life but making sawdust is still in the plans. I had to beat another melanoma, I had to get better, I had to get stronger. I did, I did and I am! I will try to get some pics up and continue where I left off. Life is good people…. ...

Sofa Table from tension wood #1: Sofa Table from tension wood#1

06-08-2018 03:08 AM by cathyb | 7 comments »

This is a series to show my process when dealing with tension wood. I started this topic in a forum call “Darn that curly tension wood” to introduce the topic. Now that I have a plan in process, I wanted to show you how to deal with wood, which is unwilling to play nice: I am working with curly koa and walnut. I chose walnut because it is relatively porous and will be a good choice for my laminations. When you have wood with too much tension, you can still make a great piec...

Yard Art and Crafts

06-08-2018 12:17 AM by backyarder1 | 5 comments »

I’m always trying to meet people who are interested in arts and crafts and its really difficult. I did go to a meetup group for woodworkers for awhile, which was pretty cool. A guy had it in his garage and he had every kind of tool you would want to work with. Anyway, I recently started a facebook group for Florida residents who like to create things for their yards. Since you can garden almost year round in Florida, a lot of people who like to tinker, build things for their yards. I...

Home Spalting #1: What is spalting?

06-07-2018 11:01 PM by Matt Bielenberg | 0 comments »

Spalting is the decay of wood by fungal attack. At this point I should say that most of what I have learned about this subject has come from: classes and instruction from Dr. Seri Robinson, her book, and Sculpting Wood contemporary tools and techniques by Mark Lindquist. That being said my thoughts, feelings and experiments are my own. If spalting is just rotten wood why can’t you just go out in to the woods and find it? Well you can. However it may be more difficult than you think f...
