Desk build #3: Nurse desk: Some glue-up

08-27-2009 07:31 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 4 comments »

RecapMy niece will graduate as a nurse in the near future. She has moved into a new house and asked me for a small desk for her new flat panel iMac. I decided to make an oak desk that would be loosely based on the mission style but with side panels that would reflect her future as an RN. My goal is a small desk 48” x 29” with keyboard drawer and a small drawer. I’ll be trying my first hand made dovetails on scrap and then on to my first dovetailed drawer I put this out here, baring all for...

A journey into the workshop. #5: Improvements, mistakes, and where did that blood come from?

09-15-2009 04:02 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

I can’t say enough good about how well the Thien separator on my dust collector is working. I tried avoiding building a pre separator to keep from taking up precious shop space. I can honestly say I am glad I finally opted to do it. I tired quickly from constantly emptying the lower bag from my DC with the Thien Baffle, so although my filter was staying clean, I was every other day, and sometimes once an hour pulling the lower bag from this thing, which can be a real chore! I continu...

Site Updates

10-16-2009 06:02 PM by Martin Sojka | 33 comments »

Long time, no post… anyways I’d like to keep you updated about the latest updates on the site. Support and maintenance is taking more and more time because your activity grows leaps and bounds so these upgrades are not huge nor revolutionary. Anyways I’m sure that you’ll find them interesting because most of them were requested multiple times in the past. So here they are: New Events Calendar features a monthly view of all important LJ picnics and meetings. These ...

New Grizzly G0690 or Used '01 Delta Unisaw? :UPDATE:

11-19-2009 05:09 AM by Brad_Nailor | 18 comments »

I asked everyone to give me their opinion here as to which saw to purchase, a new Griz, or a gently used Uni? Well I made arrangements with the seller to go look at the saw, and thinking I was going to like what I saw I brought along a down payment to seal the deal if I liked it. Well…...I LIKED IT! I’m telling you guys….this saw was in PERFECT condition. Not a scratch on it anywhere..the fence was tight and moved smoothly and locked up solid. The tabletop was dead flat. It ...

Apartment Projects #4: Paying the Bills

12-03-2009 12:30 PM by littlecope | 14 comments »

Yeah, Everybody’s got to do it! About 8-9 years ago, I was doing exactly that, paying the bills, when my Girl Friend casually told me about her “system”. She kept her Checkbook in the same box that the envelopes come in, and put all the Deposit Slips, ATM Slips, and Sales Receipts where the ATM Card was used, behind the envelopesMaybe a lot of people do this, but I had never heard of it and really liked the idea of keeping the whole procedure, and records thereof, in one pla...

First Turnings

12-19-2009 06:57 AM by johngoes | 10 comments »

I started turning projects Tuesday on my Jet 1220 lathe. The following are photos of 4 of 5 almost completed projects. I need to finish all of them. I’ve put tung oil on the walnut pieces but they’re not shining like I want so I need to research how to get a shine on top of a tung oil finish. I turned a honey dipper first – no picture. It’s ok but boring. Next I turned the awl followed by the bottle stopper (followed by another that blew off the lathe due to a ca...

Wood Gloat, Claro Walnut, Central California

01-13-2010 06:05 AM by rustfever | 10 comments »

I was recently gifted 4 Claro Walnut logs. When i went to pick them up, I found there were 7, not four. They were from 24” D to 40”D. All were from 5’-6” to 7’6” L. Yesterday I took them to the sawyer. 3 hours later I have some of the most beautiful slabs. About 40% were cut into 4/4 flitches. Another 40% were cut into 5/4 flitches. The remainder were specifically cut for turning. 15 pieces for turning, 8/4, 10/4, 12/4, 16/4, 20/4 one at 24/4. I...

Alaska Jim's Comments of the Day #10: Emergency router purchase - Bosch 1617 EVSPK - first impressions, and a surprise!

01-24-2010 04:36 AM by Jim Bertelson | 25 comments »

Well today started out OK. Down to the shop, after Sherie got up a little late, no shop work when she is sleeping…right above the shop. Finally decided that plywood was out of the question for my Super Sled due to poor quality materials…....I know…I will find a local cabinet supply to get me Baltic birch. But I reviewed the stresses etc, and with some thought and additions, 3/4 MDF will work, I am certain. So while trying to lift up a 4’x 8’ sheet of the stuff...
