Bandsaw Spacer Block

06-08-2009 07:15 PM by Joshua Howe | 2 comments »

Okay I have a question my band saw apparently takes an odd size blade 92 inch.So my local woodcraft doesn’t carry this size but they offered to have it made and sent to my house.I haven’t done this yet because I want to put a spacer block in the band saw. My thoughts are that I can fabricate a spacer to the height I would need to run a 105 inch blade. So if I am running a 92 inch blade how large of a spacer block do I need to get to 105? And I was also wondering if anyone ha...

WorkBench #3: Base just about ready for glue up

06-15-2009 09:09 AM by grimt | 3 comments »

It’s been a while but I finally finished the last tenon on the long rails. I couldn’t wait to dry assemble so I could get an idea of how it will look. Here is a photo of the base: The next picture is the base plus one of the pieces for the top. This showed me how high the bench will be. Using the heel of the hand measuring technique the bench sits just right which makes it a wee bit high as I want to add some feet. I’ll just need to make the feet 10mm and ha...

A Little About Finishing

08-06-2009 08:04 PM by Chris Davis | 5 comments »

I had a LJ send a message about finishing. I thought maybe I’d post the question and answer here and let other LJ’s chime in on what they think or use. Question:I wanted to ask you if you use any kind of sanding sealer on your murphy beds and side cabinets before you spray them with lacquer… My reply:The lacquers that they make now doesn’t need a sanding sealer really. They are so easy to sand there is no point in keeping two products. The companies add a produc...

Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw #12: Run out! Now, while you still can!

09-29-2009 03:44 AM by Bothus | 5 comments »

Hi Guys, In my 15 minutes of free time today I decided to check the run out on my arbor with my new digital dial indicator (since it has no dial shouldn’t it called an LCD display indicator?) I welcome your comments but please remember, it’s my first time so be gentle. I would normally put a catchy caption here but I haven’t watched this video yet so I don’t know what to say. ;;J

A cabinetmaker's workbench (in pine) #1: Planing and glueup of flitches

Ordered (5) 18′ long 2×12s. Cut them to half length, yielding (10) 9′ long 2×12s. Ripped each into three equal pieces, yielding (30) 9′ 2×4s. Planed the faces of each, reducing thickness to 1 3/8″. Picked 24 good ones, divided into 4 groups of 6. Started gluing up the four flitches (each will be 8 1/4″ wide x 3 1/2″ thick). Each will be allowed to cure for 24 hours, then will be run through the planer. Then the four bench segments will be glued together. for about $100...
