Oak Storage Bench #2: Stock Preparation

02-02-2016 09:44 PM by ThomasLightle | 2 comments »

I prefer getting my wood in the rough for two reasons: The first reason is the cost. Rough lumber is incredibly cheaper than 4-side finished wood. The other reason is flexibility. I am able to “find” the best part of the board in the rough lumber whereas, if your wood is pre-finished, you are stuck with what you get.So here is my workflow: LayoutRough lengthRough WidthJoint 1 face and 1 edgeFinal width + 1/16” Joint to final widthPlane to final thicknessFinal lengthLet me...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #61: Tuning a barely usable trimming plane

02-02-2016 06:21 PM by Paul Bucalo | 0 comments »

A couple of years ago I bought a Kobalt 3-in Trimming Plane from our one-and-only box store. Since then I have come to learn how poorly made this is (and the other Kobalt planes are.) For me, money spent is money spent. And I’m always game for trying to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. I decided to tune this little sucker up and see what would come of it. You should have seen what this looked like before I got started. You would have had I thought to take a picture of it, ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1690: Somewhere in Time

Yesterday was another full and busy day. We hadn't planned on doing our update until mid-week, but we were as ready as we were going to get so we thought it would be time. Keith's job in updating is getting all the new products up on the site. Besides posting them, he cross links them to other similar products and makes everything look nice and consistent.

Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.

My 1997 Delta Unisaw 36-815 Refurbishing #6: Assembling rails and fence parts

02-02-2016 04:11 AM by Holbs | 2 comments »

Just about done with the tear down and re-assembly of this Unisaw. After last blog entry and before this one, I had to ask advice about belts & such. You can read it here in the forums: What a great adventure this is. Rails & fence mostly assembled. Cast iron top miter slots have been aligned with the saw blade. But now comes the next phases: mobile platform and consideration of slapping my Bosch 4100 into the right wing extension and ong...
