On the Mill #6: Mobility

5 days ago by ScottShaeffer | 0 comments »

I’m putting together a video series for Norwood Sawmills that’s all about wood – from tree to finished product. I’ll look at logging (from several perspectives), milling (from several perspectives), lumber treatment, and woodworking (from several perspectives). I’m very excited to have the honor of producing this series and I hope I can do all of my fellow craftsmen proud. This link will take you to the second teaser on YouTube. After the video is over, it will a...

Craftsman Alien Planer

5 days ago by TheOtherMrRogers | 4 comments »

Well, I’m stuck. My brother-in-law dropped off a Craftsman Alien Planer. It was in pretty good condition. Since the planer is a “manual feed” planer, someone hand cobbled up an infeed system, which I promptly took off, and scrapped the stand. I started it up, and started to plane a 2×4, when I found out something quite surprising. A previous owner had removed the anti-kickback parts from my planer. The 2×4 was kicked back about 12 feet, and I stopped m...

Sears Radial Drill Press

6 days ago by recycle1943 | 4 comments »

Does anyone here have any experience with one of the Sears floor model Radial Drill Press ? I have an opportunity to acquire one but I don’t know anything about them nor can I find very much on the net. btw – it would be replacing my beloved HTC floor model drill press. for those that don’t know me (all of you here) the replacement sentence was laden with sarcasm

Toddlers Workbench Build #3: Things are starting to come together now.

6 days ago by Airframer | 6 comments »

My new apprentice is visiting his grandma this morning so I took advantage of the time to get the top out of the clamps and cleaned up (long planing sessions is an activity he still doesn’t have the patience for lol). I will need to have a serious talk with him on his glueup skills (Ahem.. yep tossing dimes all over the place here).... In “our” rush the other day we glued the top up about as uneven as it would have been humanly possible to do so quite a bit of work was a...

FANTASY MARQUETRY #2: Preparing Veneers for a packet

6 days ago by stefang | 32 comments »

Finally was able to get a little work done on my wizard marquetry. I was planning to make a large picture about the size of two A4 pieces of paper, but I chickened out thinking that it might be wise to keep it A4 size instead to make it more manageable to cut on my Chevalet since I’m so inexperienced with it. The first thing I did was to redraw the picture in the smaller format. This time I remembered to flip the picture first to get a mirror image before tracing it on my light ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1383: New Project Ready to Cut (At Last!)

6 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I can't tell you all how GOOD it feels to be back at work and productive again. With being gone for our little trip and then catching up and then all the things that were going on last week, I felt like I accomplished very little.The ideas are here, it is just a matter of  sitting down and concentrating long enough to actually DO them. I speak with many people who experience the same thing, so I don't feel like it is "only me" that this happens to. I find one of th...

Mike and Pat's Kitchen Remodel #4: Building the Upper Cabinets

6 days ago by MT_Stringer | 3 comments »

We have been building the upper cabinets. Two more to go. The face frames are knotty alder stained with General Finishes Colonial Maple. After a couple of coats of clear finish they received a glaze application. General Finishes Van Dyke Brown did the trick. Then it was several more coats of Parks Pro Finishes Clear Satin. I lightly sanded between coats. I really like the way they turned out. The carcases are 3/4 inch prefinished birch with 1/2 inch backs. Each side is dadoed top and botto...

Sgabello di Fossacesia #2: It Came to Me In a Dream .. Sort of ..

6 days ago by Woodbridge | 9 comments »

The evening I received the oar my mind was racing, thinking of how I might use it in a chair project. I went to bed but couldn’t sleep. I tossed and turned. What kind of chair could I build? I knew that the oar was long enough that I could cut two legs out of the bottom portion and use the top piece for the back leg and chair back. I could make a three legged chair with a long slender back. That’s the kind of chair I build most often. Now if you are going to build a chair fr...

Homecraft table saw

6 days ago by drnic | 2 comments »

I just purchased a Homecraft 8” table saw (circa 1955 Model 34-500 I believe) for $50…runs great, has a newer 1 HP motor, but has a wobbly arbor. If the local tools repair shop cannot fix it with replacement bearings, is there a source for a new arbor?
