Hand Tool Shootout | Preparing Rough Sawn Lumber by Hand vs. the Machines

05-20-2017 06:06 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 0 comments »

My usual routine is somewhat hybrid, I typically do the bulk of the removal of material with the jointer and planer, then square it up at my cross cut sled, and finally remove the scallops from the planer with a smoothing plane, and shoot the ends to final dimensions to fit. But for the purpose of demonstration, I prepared these two overly dry (20 years in a barn) air dried Walnut by hand and then with my machines to see how long each process took. End of the day 7 minutes with the machin...

This week in the shop

05-20-2017 05:48 PM by Woodbutchery | 2 comments »

Recently I achieved a milestone year at work (35 years), and along with the satisfaction of hanging around a place for 35 years, my company also provides an array of “points” for purchasing gift cards. A majority of that went to Amazon (where I can get almost everything I want), and among other things, I bought a set of DMT diamond sharpening plates and some stropping compound. Lately I’ve been mentioning a desire to do more of my work with hand tools; hand saws, hand pl...

Half blind dovetails in half the time!

05-20-2017 04:09 AM by Manitario | 2 comments »

There’s been a number of projects recently that I’ve used hand cut half blind dovetails. It’s hard to beat the strength and stability of a dovetail joint but I don’t like the look of the through dovetails, or the uniform sizing and spacing of router jig cut dovetails. That said, I find it really tedious to cut half blind dovetails in casework. Looking for an easier way, I found a Fine Woodworking article called “Half blind dovetails in half the time!” which...

Shopsmith Raised Panel Jig #1: A no tilt jig for Shopsmith Raised Panels

05-19-2017 11:17 AM by oldguy2 | 0 comments »

First I want to thank Charles Neal for the main idea of this jig.Next after owning my Shopsmith 20 years and having cut my first raised panels on an 8 inch Craftsman table saw, the search had been on for a non tilting table jig. Anyone can make the standard over the fence jig and high fence iig it will cut the panels, but the one give up owners know is the bevel cut. All my others saw cuts are no problem and my accessory jigs are fine. Like any other table saw owner a bevel cut is maybe 1...

Double Drum Sander

Looking to purchase a double drum sander, or perhaps a single drum. Educate me with pro’s and con’s. Open or closed, I need to learn. I lean towards open for greater capacity. Thanks for the input.

Table Saw Station #3: Trim, Vise, Dust Manifold

05-19-2017 01:24 AM by Brazz04 | 2 comments »

I got some more shop time today and installed the trim to help protect the melamine edges. I also completed the dust manifold to quickly change to different parts of the table saw station. I used rare earth magnets epoxied into the wood to hold the manifold firmly in place.
