Performax 16/32 Drum Sander

08-23-2010 09:45 PM by WoodArtbyJR | 9 comments »

Well, my show went very well this weekend so I am looking for a drum sand so I can improve the quality of my cutting boards and produce some end grain boards. I just found one on craigslist for $395 and now I need some advice. The manufacture date on the motor is ‘96 and the color of the unit is green. I am not sure when they switched to white. Other then listening/checking for bad bearings and looking at the overall condition, what else should I be looking at or for. This unit als...

Who Cares ?

09-05-2010 05:04 AM by Doug Scott | 8 comments »

Whats going on in a selfemployed guys life that spends most of the day eather working in the shop or for the shop, I couln’t tell you how many people ask how to get started in their own business, what is it that everyone has a misconception of being selfemployed, It is NOT a 9:00 to 5:00 job. Everyone that asked me about it, I just ask them if they would follow around for a week or more they might change their mind about it. A few years ago I had a young guy asking to see my portfolo. a...

phenolic plywood

09-17-2010 03:55 AM by thebigvise | 11 comments »

Guys and Gals, I spent an hour at work today e-mailing and talking to suppliers of Colorfin baltic birch phenolic plywood. Why are they only to be found in upstate New York, Michigan, and California??!! I live in North Carolina and it just puzzles the heck out of me that I cannot get this stuff. Of course. motor freight from New York is an option, but PULEEEAASE!!! It’s $185 per 8’ X 4’ sheet, PLUS about $200 shipping. Is there a retailer in or near North Carolina?...

Construction for the top is similar to the shelf: biscuits and maple splines. Here is the bottom shelf wetted with mineral spirits. i and detail of spline Here I’ve used tape for the top so I don’t have to mark the actual wood for biscuit locations Here is a close up of some repair I had to do to one of the walnut top...

Myrtle Anniversary Shaker Table #15: Leg Joinery

11-06-2010 10:06 AM by DoctorDan | 2 comments »

Here’s some pictures of the joinery. All done by hand (except my coping saw blade broke and the jigsaw was closer than the store.) I had a bit of a blow out while chiseling from the top, still have the piece to go back in. I think I’ll end up wedging all the tenons. You’ll notice the two bottom ones are different sizes to allow for the sliding dovetail.

Extremely Average #292: More Henry Wood

11-17-2010 06:51 AM by Ecocandle | 5 comments »

Hello All, I have undertaken a new job, and it will take up much of my time, for the holidays. As some of you may know, I started blogging Jan 2, of 2010, and done so every day since then. I have posted links to most of the woodworking posts (which make up about 85% of my blog) here, and I try to focus the majority of my effort on woodworking. But over the next two months, I may have many days which are too full to allow for woodworking, and thus, a blog about my woodworking. So I a...

Hi friends I just wanted to let you all know that I was privileged to be selected by Greg and his wife, the owners of Oregon Burls to receive a beautiful and unique slab. This was in response to a contest Greg had on LJ’s. Due to work and weather it’s been a few weeks since Greg notified me that I had won his contest. As a matter of fact it was when David and Rick from LJ’s were visiting. I was really surprised that I was selected, but so happy...
