I have two questions… 1) where would be a good site to sell a jet 16/32 in great shape. 2) what experience does anyone have with this upgraded drum sander, looking at the jet 22/44 Pro? The reason I wanted to upgrade is the material I had to sand was too much for the 16/32, it bound up and scored the wood. I had two 5.5” Oak boards 1.5” thick…7’ long. I had rollers guiding the boards in and out. The good news is that it bound up on the bottom for the table I...
Finally had most of a day to make a start on the end table. Purchased some thick African mahogany for the legs. Milled the legs down to size (1 3/4” square x 23 3/4” L). Routed the bottoms with a 1/4” round over bit on the router table. Then used the mortising jig to cut 15 mortise holes (1/4” x 5”L).
Today a western Lumberjock met with an east coast Lumberjock. I had the pleasure of meeting John (Woodenwizard), who is from Colorado, here in Rhode Island at my home/shop. John is here on the east coast visiting his son Troy and his family in Connecticut. John mentioned this visit to me several months ago and asked if I was amenable to a visit during his stay, and of course, I was. Troy drove his Dad the 45 miles or so from his home to mine. It was a pleasure to meet John and Troy and s...
Finished this project. You can see more pictures in my projects gallery. Here are some I didn’t upload over there.
I was a pretty good “Elf” yesterday and I accomplished a great deal. I not only drew up my ‘secret gift’ but I also got it cut out. Today I will be doing the sanding and finishing and then I can chalk another one up as finished! It came out nice too and I really WISH I could show it here. But I know that the recipient stops in and looks at the blog from time to time and I don’t want to risk the chance of it being seen before Christmas. I just have to say it is ...
Top is glued up and stable as of this afternoon. Looks reasonably good, all told. The question now is how to ‘refinish’ the top. Now I know what you’re saying. Just the top, Smitty? What about the rest of the table? Well, I’m going to concentrate on the top and edges of the top for now, and see what happens before complicating my thoughts with turned leg refinishing. So there. It’s the KISS principle at it’s best… Andy suggested hitting ...
More work on the Rietveld chairs. Pretty soon they will actually start looking like chairs! :) http://secondwindworkshop.blogspot.com/2013/01/rietveld-build-update_245.html
Hello again folks. Here I am in the home stretch. I say that but I know there are still a bunch of details left. I decided to go with drawbored Mortise and Tenons with no glue. The splayed legs on this bench make it incredibly stable as is so it’s not necessary at all. I also won’t have to worry about glue not curing well in the cold weather. The idea of not watching the clock during glue up is pretty nice to, especially on an assembly his size. The hole stress free thing is true in the...
I found them…and there are a lot! :) Another update on my Gerrit Rietveld Red and Blue Chair build. http://secondwindworkshop.blogspot.com/2013/02/a-whole-lot-of-holes.html
