Upgrading the fence and wings on my Ridgid R4512 table saw

04-08-2018 09:54 PM by bigJohninvegas | 1 comment »

So I unfortunately purchased a Ridgid R4512 new back in 2013. I was a newer woodworker and my budget at the time would not allow for a saw with a higher price tag. And at the time I was a little intimidated by the idea of a 10+ year old (affordable) saw that was going to most likely need a rebuild. So withing a year of that purchase, I had learned that I had the skill to handle a tool rebuild, and wished I had bought an old unisaw or powermatic and done that rebuild. But here I was, stuck ...

04-07-2018 10:54 PM by Diego Cassels | 2 comments »

This was an easy sketch and only took about 1/2 an hour.Knowing the wood width was important, it allowed me to be more creative with the curves. 4 cuts Top (Seat): =>40 cm long = 15,75 “ =>25 cm Deep = 9,84 “ =>4 cm width = 1,57 “ 2 Legs: =>33,5 cm long = 13,18 “ =>23 cm Deep = 9,06 “ =>3 cm width = 1,18 “ Leg support:=>37 cm long = 14,57 “ =>4 cm Deep = 1,57 “ =>3 cm width = 1,18 “

In this stage I choose the wood I want to use, usually I buy it, but this time I got lucky and unearth this beatiful “quebracho” wood from the backyard. Its a dark red and VERY hard wood. Its about 2” thick.

Shop Notes #16: Milling Around

04-07-2018 04:59 PM by Steve | 4 comments »

For Christmas last year, I received an Alaskan Lumber Mill from my wife. I think she gave it to me as a form of self-defense; over the past couple of years, the neighbors have identified me as they guy to call when a tree falls and they need help hauling it away. I’ve accumulated a stash of California live oak, avocado and juniper (cedar). There are not a lot of lumber mills in my area, and those we have charge more to cut logs into lumber than the resulting boards are worth, especia...

My woodworking journey up to this point.

04-07-2018 04:48 PM by cajunrph | 5 comments »

I had always been fascinated by woodworking from my early years. I’d watch PBS This Old House and Riy Underhill’s show and just dream of making some stuff. My grandfather was a woodworker. He had an extensive shop with many tools. He made have carved items that he sold as a side job. He passed away before I was born. We only had the stories and some of his pieces of work. The shop was 10 plus years into disarray by the time I was old enough to care about it. We weren’t allow...

I can’t begin to describe how disappointed I am with the customer service at Legacy Woodworking. On March 30th, Tracy Anderson, the President of Legacy Woodworking Machinery sent the following email: “Rob, I will call you on on Monday after I have had a chance to look over your order and speak with John. Would you please check out one measurement for me before Monday? Measure the width of the gantry uprights. Tell me if it is 10” wide wide as shown in this photo. ...

Shop stuff #121: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash Pt 3

04-07-2018 02:56 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, I got it all done. A little longer video, but I wanted to get to the end of it with this one while I was editing. Man, you wouldn’t believe the hours of footage NOT shown….lol. Anyway, the build was a fun one and I tried a couple of things I have never done before. My son in law likes his present and has his guitar on it now. Of course, mine got first ride because I had to video it in action. All in all, I like how it came out. Pretty close to what I had in my head, w...
