Tool gloat: UNISAW! #7: Rail and fence adjustment

04-20-2011 02:43 AM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

I decided the easiest way to get the space to accommodate the guide tube was to file down the locking cam. I found a pretty slick way to do this while ensuring that I don’t file any flat spots on the cam. I stuck a small file down in between the cam and the locking shoe and used the shoe to press the file against the cam, and ran the locking handle up and down. I think I filed off about 0.10”, just enough to make the difference. Then I had to drill and tap holes to mount th...

Dovetailed Hand Tool Cabinet #5: Half lap door frame, glass panel, glass stops...

05-03-2011 05:50 AM by JasonD | 3 comments »

I didn’t take too many pictures on the day that I built the door frame. This is particularly because it was the first time that I made a frame using half lap joints and I completely hate them and never want to use them again because they make me feel completely incompetent. I did everything the way I normally do to cut a clean, square shoulder and cheek; just like when I cut tenons. I made sure the lumber was flat and square. I used the reference face and edge to score the lines to d...

Delta Mortiser 14-651 #1: My new tool

05-15-2011 02:13 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 2 comments »

My Delta Mortising Machine, the 14-651, arrived a couple of days ago. I got it into the house by myself using a furniture dolly. Waiting for my oldest son to come visit so I can get it into the basement shop. Plan on making a dedicated table similar to my Table Saw Table and Router Table. I like to make all of my tables so that the work surface is at the same height. That way the material handling equipment (read, rollers) doesn’t need to be adjusted between machines. The rollers I h...

shoe bench #1: Identifying a need

07-22-2011 04:23 PM by coloradoclimber | 3 comments »

I live in a house with 7 people, 5 of them teenagers and 3 of the females. We have a LOT of shoes in our home. We don’t wear shoes in the house so we always kick off our shoes right in the entryway as we come in the front door. The result is often a huge pile of mixed up shoes. Here is a picture of just some of the shoes. This is after I cleaned up most of the shoes after throwing a fit and after everyone has already left the house for the day, this is just the small remainder of sh...

Shop Update #27: Quick news: Wiring passed inspection!

08-18-2011 04:58 AM by TheKingInYellow | 0 comments »

I officially have 220v in the garage, and I can fire up the new Grizzly… As soon as I finish building it :) Had a bit of a rough family day and ended up having a lot less time in the garage then I planned, so the saw is not assembled beyond the first extension table being installed. So far, so good! Machining is top notch, tables are dead flat, and assembly so far has been easy and well documented in the instructions.

Boot and Glove Chest

09-02-2011 03:44 PM by Toolz | 3 comments »

My wife (Laura) wanted a chest for our main entry area to store winter boots and gloves and scarves out of site. I had a few pieces of 1 3/4” x 1 3/4” walnut that had 1/2” dadoes already routed on two sides. Looking through my wood stash I decided to use some of my “mystery” wood. I really believe it to be flat-sawn sycamore. At first I thought the dark lines in the sycamore were burn marks from the horizontal sander but I soon found out that it was just a wonde...

Reclaimed Cedar #2: Oh no! It is not cedar; it is Hemlock

10-03-2011 05:03 PM by Chris Love | 4 comments »

Well, I bought my new saw. Set it up, installed my wood slicer blade, and started figuring out how to use this saw and the process I want to use for resawing all of this cedar…funny this does not smell like cedar. So I cut a couple more pieces and it doesn’t exactly look like cedar either. I have never worked with wood that has been a fence for 30 plus years, does cedar change much over time? So I took a couple of samples to some friends. The consensus is that it is not ceda...
