What To Do With This Board? #5: Groov'n!

05-14-2015 10:29 PM by Mean_Dean | 4 comments »

Hey Guys! Today I cut the grooves in the box sides for the top and the bottom. I debated whether to cut the grooves at the router table with a 1/4” straight bit, or on the tablesaw with a full kerf rip blade. I decided it would be quicker and easier to cut them on the tablesaw. Here are the box sides from yesterday: I used a Freud full-kerf FTG rip blade to cut the grooves. The FTG feature gives the grooves a nice flat bottom, instead of the sawtooth pattern of my combinati...

Farmhouse Table w_Buffet #9: Finish and Deliver!

05-14-2015 09:30 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 13 comments »

Sorry, but there just aren’t bunch of pics for this installment… I did show the ‘client’ several stain choices, and they picked ‘double coverage’ of Early American 203 (as I recall). Made good use of Minwax’ Wood Conditioner, then stained tops apart from bases (those got primer, of course, then acrylic latex ‘White’, several coats for good coverage. Table top shows planes marks (they wanted, I obliged), to good effect. ...

Vaughns bench part 5

05-14-2015 04:06 PM by Vaughnilla | 0 comments »

So I was able to insert all of my pieces for the arm rest support. I drilled pocket holes and inserted screws with them. I had to cut an extra piece because one of the pieces was too big so I cut it down to size but the issue was I drilled before I cut, resulting in the screws to go right through without holding the board to the piece. But it’s all good now. Next step is the back pieces and the leg I’m making for support under the bench.

My new Grizzly G0555LX bandsaw

05-14-2015 01:09 PM by Bobthewoodbutcher | 1 comment »

I’m new here, and this is my first post.I received the saw several weeks ago, and just got around to installing a new blade (3/4” Timberwolf) and setting up the adjustments. I’ve been dabbling in woodworking for about 60 years and have a fair basic knowledge but never became very proficient. One of my earlier projects was a fabulous dollhouse and furnishings for my grandddaughter many years ago. I still have it because she has no room for it. But she now has 3 daughters (my great-granddau...

Building a KARA Hummer Layout Duck Boat #4: Installing Anchor Pole Through-Hull Brackets

05-14-2015 12:22 PM by DustyMark | 0 comments »

Requirement An option during the build is to install anchor pole through-hull brackets. Anchor poles are pushed through the hull and into the marsh bottom to hold the layout boat in place in shallow water. I figured that if one was good, two would be even better to hold the bow and stern in place during crosswind set-ups of a decoy spread. Anchor poles are quicker and won’t get snagged in decoy lines like a regular anchor and line could. I installed braces of 8/4 stock, leftove...

Just for Fun... #96: Can You Guess What it Is?

05-14-2015 06:17 AM by littlecope | 25 comments »

Took a little break from the Re-Painting scene and squeezed in some Shop Time… Can You guess what I made?Began with a scrap 2 X 4 appropriately long enough for the task at hand and shaped the first profile with the Band Saw… Since the 2 X 4 didn’t have a very flat bottom, it was clamped between two scraps of Poplar that are flat… The Clamps were Leapfrogged down the length of the big ‘Sandwich’ as it was cut…Which gave this… More Profile c...

A Strategy for Woodworking #51: Taking Down a Tree

05-14-2015 02:32 AM by Gary Rogowski | 4 comments »

I hate cutting down trees. As much as I love the wood that comes from them, there is still something about cutting down a tree that seems to me an affront. A crime against the sky. Certainly it is a loss of some valuable shade in the heat of the sun. And it changes a landscape, a street view. But it was half dead and once cut, discovered to be rotten inside. It had to come down now in a noisy if controlled fashion rather than taking out someone’s car some chance day. It was a good sized tr...
