I talked to a family friend yesterday and found out he had 2 shopsmiths that his father had bought just sitting in storage. So I said how much you want for them, since I know he doesnt do wood working. Well we talked a bit and he said $250.00, so I said deal. They need a little work but they run.They have 2 scroll saw attachments,tablesaw attachments,1sander attachement and will give me a lathe and drill press. There is some more stuff for them I couldnt get too so when I pick them up I wi...
Hello….... I have two old p.o. box doors late 1800’s with beveled glass and combination. I’m looking for a craftsman to build a cabinet for each. I’m looking for the wood and style to be indicative of the time period. I would like more of a long security drawer style. Please contact me @ 603-418-4329 Thank You Victor
So for the first real project I am posting…I am making a couple of bookshelves to mount on the wall over the side tables next to our bed in the master bedroom. I have one built, and should finish the second tonight. Picture coming soon! -Silas EDIT OK, finally got a pic working! EDIT 2 OK, so photobucket won’t let me resize it. No matter how many times I do, it quickly reverts back to the original size. Still working on it… EDIT 3 Another try...
Hi everyone,I’ve recently got a new tablesaw, it’s my first one.It’s a small, portable 900W tablesaw, kind of small but it fits my shop well: The thing is, I want to cut some 4cm thick (~1.57 inches) Korina wood: I’ve only used this saw a little bit and it’s already lost 2 teeth on some pine (!!) so I’m not sure how it will do against thick hardwood. I’ve read that the blades that come with the saw are usually very low grade, will changing the b...

I built me a clamp rack added some more shelfs, and bought me two 36’’ heavy duty clamps by Jorgensen made in the USA. I still have a couple of shop projects I wont to do! A hand tool workbench and a Norm Abram style router table.
Not sure if it was the first wood-project I made but its the earliest that I can remember. I don’t even recall if it was when I actually was at summer camp or if it was a craft day or something that we attended at camp. Oh well , I guess it does not really matter right now. But we spent a half day or so in a class where we built small reproductions of our cabins. Each cabin was named after a tree species. Ours was walnut. I still have that little model. Its made out of plywood and st...
