My DW735

04-14-2008 01:32 PM by flink | 7 comments »

Well, this weekend I made some progress on reorgnaizing my basement. I moved some 2×10x14 foot lumber destined to replace some damaged floor joists from workstands dividing the basement to a dead space along side the wall next to my tablesaw. Now that the lumber is moved, I had room to finally unpack my DW735. All I can say is wow. I can’t wait to run some nice maple through for the faceframes of my kitchen cabinets. I am curious, though. Why did Dewalt ever think that this t...

The Router Table Saga #4: Progress on the sub surface infrastructure

05-01-2008 05:40 AM by Mark Shymanski | 0 comments »

Well I’ve finished cutting the rabbets and halflaps for the framework for the table top and for the upper part of the legs. I’m learning a lot about how to increase the accuracy and precision of my joints as I become more familiar with my router. The jig is working really well and I’ve got a lot more confidence in my ability to build accurate jigs. This is a shot of the final leg joint after its cut. I had to adjust my joints after deciding not to use an 10 degree ...

Front Porch Rockers #2: Cutting Parts

05-26-2008 06:52 PM by bhack | 5 comments »

Choice of wood? Well, for me that is easy. In the area of Mid-Missouri where I live there is not a big choice of wood suppliers. The only one close just sells the species that are mostly local. And money is a big factor for me. With the cost of diesel fuel it is prohibitive to drive the 150 miles to St Louis or Kansas City where there is a better market. So at the local supplier I found a large supply of Ash at $1.20 a bf. Decision made.Today I milled the 4/4 Ash to the prescribed thic...

Tablesaw Improvements #5: Mini Outfeed Table

06-23-2008 05:43 PM by Jon3 | 4 comments »

Just when you (and I) thought I was done with my tablesaw improvements… I noticed during some demo/construction at work, they were tossing out some perfectly fine laminated ply shelving. I also have been feeling the desire for some more outfeed room. I have a really small shop, so I couldn’t do a big huge extension table, even if I could do a big fold-down type, it just seemed like a waste, as I mostly work smaller, and I don’t do a lot of big ply breakdowns. (and when...

The Craftsman's Path #44: Using the Band Saw and Jigsaw for Rough Stock Prep

08-06-2008 09:51 PM by Mark Mazzo | 1 comment »

Previously, I wrote about the merits of using rough stock in your woodworking. In that post I discussed the benefits offered to every woodworker through milling your own boards from rough to ready. What I did not cover is how to go about preparing rough stock for use on a project. In a new post on my blog, I focus on the first steps in the process and discuss how I typically approach them, and why. Take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks for reading!

Back With a New Blog

09-02-2008 02:49 PM by Dekker | 0 comments »

Well, it’s been ages since I’ve been active on Lumberjocks, however I have been lurking at the edges, admiring all the work that has been done. What have I been doing? Spending time with my daughter who turned one last month! Of course, looking forward to the time when we can work on a birdhouse together… but that’s a few years away… My wife wants me to make her a small play kitchen first. But I’ve also just got my own blog up-and-running over at Wood...

Making a Ventilation Grille ... A First For Me ...

09-30-2008 03:16 AM by RobH | 2 comments »

Hey all, I did not expect to get to this as quickly as I have at all. I had a good long afternoon thanks to a visit to the Dr. to find out why I am coughing so much. It appears to be asthmatic bronchitis, probably caused by allergies. Got some meds to take. Will mostly just have to ride this one out though. Anyway, when I got home this afternoon I started work on the ventilation grille that will be placed in the bottom of the equipment portion of the entertainment center. There are...

Another day, another nickle #12: Home again, home again.

11-02-2008 01:33 AM by Thos. Angle | 20 comments »

OK, Dennis and Peter, you called it. Hunting season ended on the 21rst of October. After we sent the last hunters out we began to take down camp and pack it up to make the 30 mile pack trip out to base camp. I left camp with another packer and 12 horse loads of camp on the 23rd. A little over 8 hours later we arrived at the base camp safe and sound. The other 28 mule loads arrived the next evening and hunting camp was all in the trailers to go home by dark. I left the next morning with the ca...

router table

12-02-2008 09:25 PM by trucker12349 | 14 comments »

I have always used a hand held router and have decided to get a router table. I would like to build one but, have decided to buy a cheap one to start. Because of the depression bouts I have I don’t want to get half way done and then just ignore the table when I lose interest. I have looked at the ryobi router/router table combo for under $200.00. This router is a 8.5 amp router with a 1/4” shank. I will also buy a ryobi 18 piece router bit set with the bearings. My old router bits...
