Swapping #1: Maple

1825 days ago by lumberjacques | 3 comments »

What about a wood swapping area? For instance, I have access to ALL sorta Maple, but not to, for instance, Oak, or other types of wood. maybe swapping chunks via snail mail would be a good idea.

First cabinets #2: Face frames completed

1788 days ago by Mark Gipson | 9 comments »

The weather has been kind to me again today and I was able to get outside and do some more work on the cabinets for my shop and kitchen.Today I built and fitted the face frames to both kitchen cabinets. Here are some construction details for those interested. The cabinets sides and bottoms are 3/4” Thai plywood, the backs are 8mm ply (the wood here is mainly in metric sizes).I used my router to cut dados in the sides for the bottom which was then fixed in place with glue and s...

Step-back Cupboard Build #8: Cut nails and scant holes

1762 days ago by rwyoung | 2 comments »

Cut nails and scant holes. Everybody has a set of gimlets just gathering dust in the junk drawer, right? I know I could have used a twist bit and the cordless drill and zipped right through these but this seemed like so much more fun. A set of gimlets isn’t very expensive and I can see where they would come in handy in confined spaces and tight corners. I also got my cut nails last week. Ordered them from Tremont Nail Company . Played around a little bit with a few before star...

Observations #11: Does It Really Matter?

1746 days ago by Russel | 30 comments »

I am a fan of LumberJocks. Particularly in it’s current form, because it has pretty much been this way since I joined. That was a little more than 9,000 members ago and not quite two years. It may be me, but lately it seems that there have been a number of posts saying that people should be stopped. People should be stopped from posting so many projects. People should be stopped from making so many comments. People should be stopped from greetings newcomers. People should be st...

Table saw modification allows 40 + inch cross cut!!

1728 days ago by eastside | 2 comments »

I wanted a way to cut large sheet stock for cabinet backs, bookcases or whatever and can’t buy a sliding table saw so I made one—sort of. I started by gluing 4 pieces of Oak together and finished it off at 2×2 ¼. With that in clamps I drilled 3 holes in the table leaf 5/16 of an inch. Cut the Oak to 35 inches and attached it to the table holding it lower about 1/16 so not to interfere with the everyday life of the saw. I used T-bolts and let them in about ¼ inch. ...

On the move!

1691 days ago by TheWoodenBox | 2 comments »

Well, I’m on the move again. I’ve decided to move my workshop back to the garage. After a long time thinking about it (and about a weeks worth of cleaning) I’m going to make the move. This came about, when I went to “the shop” and found that my scrollsaw had a nice layer of rust on the table. Instead of trying to find the money to insulate the shed, I would just move to a place that is already insulated and heated and cooled.

1657 days ago by RavinHeart | 6 comments »

I recently picked up a 16/32 drum sander. I found it on craigs list … it works great.

I went and looked at it and he siad it was $...

Look at that! #2: I was supposed to pick up my Delta bandsaw today but that's not gonna happen

1641 days ago by Bothus | 5 comments »

So yesterday I called the guy I bought the bandsaw from to confirm the time for me to pick it up today. It’s about a 3 hour round trip for me. He answered the phone and I asked the question and I hear a long pause like he forgot I was coming… Turns out he is going to deliver it at 8AM this morning because he’s coming out here to pick up some other tool. Cool. Hey maybe I can take the bandsaw to work so I work on it after hours? Nah, I’d feel like I was cheatin...
