Well, I’m back to woodworking which has been sorely missed. Job change, move, equipment in storage, and finally new house and a shop!Much smaller space than I had before, but I can make it work. 400 sq.ft. 2 car garage that I share with lawn equipment and household storage. Since I have a 10ft. Ceiling I put in wall racks and shelves and went vertical to gain floor space. Overall I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. My equipment fared extrememly well in storage, so very ...
Over the past summer and fall I have amassed a fare quantity of green wood. Now just about all I do is rough out bowls. I am still a novice at all this but so far it has been going well.I start by measuring the lumber to see what kind of a bowl (or box) I can make. Then I draw the shape with a compass and mark the middle of the bowl. Now at this stage most people would usually go to the band saw and cut out the bowl blank. Well my 9” band saw will only cut to a depth of 3 ¾” so that’s o...

It’s track day!!! part two Showed this last time but just wanted you to be able to see the difference in the jig. Drill the one finger then flip it and drill the other. [9/64 drill bit] Then started the other end using a 1/64 larger bit I’ll show pictures why later.I drilled a little passed center then flipped it over and drilled the other side.I added a board under the jig so the tread wouldn’t slip down under load I first drilled all the small fingered ones as ...
I thank all of you who sent me advise!. Thanks Sawdust! I want to say1. I use flying dutchman blades2. I ping my blades for tension3. I lightly clamp (small light rubber bands) around the blade to see how they point.4. I try to use a slow feed rate.I forgot the term but the notched lining that is glued in to provide a gluing surface to attach the plates to the sides.I was asked about my scroll saw-It’s a skill (yes I know). The first thing I did when I got itt,was cut a 3/4” piec...
Got some stuff done today, so now I need to get some pics up! This is the back of the top part of my shelving unit, before I put the back on. And this is with the back on. I painted it first, then attached it. It’s just cheapy pine tongue and groove. It’s really hard to photograph the color but I think this pic is close. I’ve left the wall side stile off until I can fit it once it’s up there. I finally relented and bought a pocket screw jig and will attach it wit...
When milling up the material for the bench at my firms workshop i created a right angled triangular rail for the deadman to slide across, a couple of opposing 45 rips followed by a 0 rip was enough to create the slide. This was cut to the shoulder length of the front slider, glued and clamped into position.The underside of the top received a 12×20mm groove between the two front mortices created by a router and parallel fence.I cut a birds mouth at the bottom and a tongue at the t...
ROCKLER LID-STAY TORSION HINGE INSTALLATION Although installing the hinges was a simple process, I wanted to be sure that it went on without any mistakes. I wanted the lid to be centered on the case with just the right overlay. Of course, the right amount of overlay with the hinges I was using was set in motion weeks ago. That is when I cut the lid panel to its final dimensions. It was that long ago that these steps today where easily processed. The steps I took to install the hinge...
