Roll Around Tool Cabinet #13: Dovetails Cut on Table Saw is Possible but Time Consuming

02-13-2017 05:13 AM by HappyHowie | 2 comments »

I have spent several hours attempting to cut dovetails on my table saw. I have been using spare milled lumber milled to the same dimensions of my 3 inch tall drawer parts. Cutting the side board dovetails was straight forward. The process was okay. I tilted my saw blade to 8 degrees based on my Wixey digital angle gauge. This angle will be used to cut the dovetails in the side boards. Eight degrees will also be used to angle the fence that will be used to cut the pins in the front and bac...

100 foot cabinet shop #2: Accuracy, accuracy, accuracy . . .

02-13-2017 04:23 AM by Madmark2 | 5 comments »

Wood has three dimensions and the table saw cuts both X (length) and Y (width) The Z (thickness) axis needs a lunch box planer. The table saw has the Incra rip fence and miter gauge so X and Y are covered. Z however needed some help getting the same accuracy as the saw. One of the benifits of digital gauges is that I can see the reading without squinting or having to bend down. I have a digital height gauge to set the saw height and set the router bits consistently. Repeatability is...

Shop storage projects #21: Need a dresser for chisels, starting up

02-13-2017 03:40 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Main dresser is done, and almost loaded up. A drawer I had found on the curb during Trash Day provides the start for the next little project. I had that old box of chisels, that needed a better place to hang out in.. This is the drawer I found. I separated the chisels into two groups. The Plastic handle crowd was laid out in the drawer, and some scrap pine was added as dividers.. I’ll finish nailing the dividers in place later. There is a place to stash a small chest of...

kitchen cabinets #2: A lot of sawdust.

02-13-2017 02:24 AM by MC | 1 comment »

For spending as many hours in the shop this weekend it does not seem like I got much done. I did finish rough dimensioning the 294 Parts! This took much longer than anticipated. I had a lot more waste than I thought I would. I budgeted for 25% scrap and barely had enough lumber. One 4’ by 7” board left. If I make any mistakes I will need more lumber, I think I will order it now. I built a rack with saw horses to start organizing the lumber and started to work on ru...

100 foot cabinet shop #1: Thoughts behind the shop and working standards

02-13-2017 01:50 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Used to have a shop, X got in the divorce. :( Fast forward 15 years & I have 2/3 of 1/2 of a garage to build a cabinet shop in. The core of any shop is the table saw and within my (retired) spending limit I got a brand new Grizzly G0715P. Simultaneously with the saw purchase I added an Incra LS-III rip fence and an Incra miter gauge. I’m disabled and can’t walk / stand a lot so everything is within reach of my chair in front of the saw. I’ve got most all of th...

Handplane Restoration #33: Tony - Stanley Bedrock 602

02-13-2017 12:17 AM by WayneC | 5 comments »

I got an awesome buy it now deal on this plane. I did a light clean-up this afternoon to get him in the tool box. The plane got its name from a crudely scrawled owner’s name “Tony” on the side and tote. I’m down to two bedrocks to complete the full set.

Router Table Build

02-12-2017 11:11 PM by builtinbkyn | 10 comments »

So I decided to make a mess, um, no I mean a router table. Man I forgot how routing hardboard and MDF makes copious amounts of the most nasty dust imaginable and there’s almost no way to capture it, so I gave up on trying. Respirator all day and then a massive cleanup. Well anyway, I’ve been using a Craftsman Workmate with an Incra top bolted to it. Actually there’s even a layer of oak flooring strips below the top making for a heavy load. Not sure why I did that. I ...

Cabinetmaker's Toolchest #7: Finishing

02-12-2017 06:47 PM by dannorocks | 7 comments »

This toolchest in part has been the longest ongoing project I’ve built. I did finish this in March of 2016, and am realizing I never finished the blog build so here it is. Now that all jointery has been completed, it was time to plane down the proud parts of dovetailing, some scraping, sanding and I then put two coats of Zinnister shellac on- inside and out. Sanded between coats. Then I applied two coats of black milk paint. Sanded between coats and then applied a light boiled l...

Cabinetmaker's Toolchest #6: Building the lid part 2

02-12-2017 06:33 PM by dannorocks | 2 comments »

Lid finally finished. Here’s a pictures of the build process. Dovetailed the lid support to be later attached to the lid panel. Quick dry fit of the panel and support before glue up. Final lid glue up. No pictures of the hardware install, but I built a back support as well using my bevel gauge to let the lid rest on and set the chain as partial support. And finally I needed a resting place for my panel saws so I built a hand hole holder that quickly releases the saws.

DIY tablesaw + dust extraction

02-12-2017 06:25 PM by FranksShed | 1 comment »

Hey everybody! My name is frank and I am a hobby craftsman from germany. I already talked about the build of my DIY table saw in my blog. In my youtube channel you can find the video for this build. If you are interested, just click here!But as I completed my table saw, I soon realized that I have to work on the dust extraction. After a lot of setbacks I figured out a very effective solution. The main problem was still being able to reach the saw (for the settings). So I made four removabl...
