Miter Saw Station #5: Door, Drawers and Trays

4 days ago by Lenny | 14 comments »

I have completed the doors, drawers and pull-out trays of my miter saw station. The drawers are pretty basic. They are ¾ inch solid maple fronts, ½ inch Baltic birch sides and back and ¼ inch bottom. Either laziness or the fact that this is for a workshop, led me to use a locking rabbet joint for the drawer fronts versus dovetails. I did the same for the pull-out trays. All the drawers and trays ride on full-extension drawer slides. For the doors, I went with solid maple r...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1296: Early Inspirations

4 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I took the day off of writing yesterday because I wanted to really make a dent in the new projects that I have been working on. Sometimes I find myself getting lost in the ‘social media’ part of the day and it leads me down a path that sometimes may not be very productive. I don’t worry much about this, as I feel that I do make up for my time spent fooling around with my friends and customers on the computer. Besides, there usually isn’t a day that goes by when I am ...

5 days ago by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Almost got this box about sized up. Some tweaking at the corners, maybe. Time to add a bottom? Needs a groove made in the sides of the box, so A Plough plane to cut some 1/4” by 1/4” grooves. Plane just MIGHT be a tad older than me? I had a piece of pine scrap, almost the right sizes for the box. needed a rebate around the edges, though So, a Wards #78 set to take a bit of the top, er, bottom of the panel. Seems I had the panel a might too smooth and shiny. ...

Breathing life into a trusty saw

5 days ago by GodofBiscuits | 4 comments »

I bought my Craftsman table saw about 6 years ago now and it’s been a good saw as long as you took extra special care to ensure the horrid fence it came with was straight each and every time you moved it. The fence system that came in these saw is appalling to say the least and down right garbage when compared to a good biesemeyer style fence. Last week using the saw, I moved the fence and spent several minutes trying to get it straight so I didn’t ruin the beautiful piece of curl...
