Underway again...finally #15: Rain, rain. Go away...

11-30-2017 07:34 PM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

Not a long downpour, but heavy enough to cause work to stop.This after a short morning due to the roofing guys returning and starting work on the carport roof. They actually took up the existing tar paper, ripped a long, rotten 2×6 out replaced it before the rain hit. Luckily, their work seems to be “holding”, that is, not leaking anywhere obvious. OTOH, the wind blew the wet stuff all over the carport area, leading to an early end for my day’s effort. I may have spo...

Tool Upgrades / Repairs #1: Craftsman 113.27520 Table Saw Rebuild

12-07-2017 01:59 PM by rbrjr1 | 6 comments »

A little over a month ago I was on CL looking for a table saw.. It’s THAT TIME, TIME to get my shop organized and stop working on my knees (fine when I was 26 and purchased the house, not fine at 42).. First step, get rid of the SKIL mini tablesaw that I inhereted from my father in law (he was throwing it out and I dont like to see people throw out tools). So, back to CL.. I was looking for an 80’s Craftsman table saw (like my dad has) and ran across the 113.27520 and thought.....

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #4: More gluing

03-03-2015 02:58 AM by ic3ss | 3 comments »

Since I began woodworking almost five years ago and slowly building my shop, one of the things that has proven difficult for me to prioritize was buying clamps. We all know the old saying “You can’t have enough clamps”. And while this is true, the projects that I have mostly done didn’t require very many clamps. And the larger projects I did, I just made do with what I had. This bench project has spurred me to start buying parallel clamps, but at $40 + a pop and with s...

There is different way of holding the pieces with nails bent in places Or with small wood blocks I like to have it lay out...

Shop Re-model

03-09-2015 03:48 AM by Woodpecker23 | 6 comments »

So I am very new to this. My first ever blog on any site, not to mention my first day as a member of this site. Lately I have been doing a lot of thinking about my next project, along with creating a lot of plans using sketchup. I have been torn to either remodel my shop to make it more of and efficient work space, which leads me to the money aspect of it. I don’t have a ton of extra cash to fund the project, so my thought was to us some of my project plans I have been working on ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #44: It's not only Women allowed to changed their minds!

03-14-2015 11:58 PM by PhilBello | 9 comments »

I said my next project was going to be the mobile Mitre saw stand, but as I am having trouble sourcing some parts, I decided I would make a wheelbarrow Planer Stand, I had seen it on Popular Woodworking and decided it would be ideal for me, as I often have to cart my Planer to various parts of the property, so a fixed one in the workshop was not for me. It only takes a couple of hours to make, and although it is slightly bigger than I envisaged, it is sturdy and the right height, it will g...

Band saw safety - graphic photos

03-16-2015 06:11 PM by woodmaker | 19 comments »

Well I recently had an incident using my bandsaw. The blade jamed in the wood, flipped it into my hand and broke left pinky and ring finger. Both fingers were gashed open by the bladeThat was last week, I went to the scene of the crime and looked like things over. The blade is still embedded in the wood, and wrapped completely around it. Which was better than wrapped around me. My best estimation is I was too lazy to change the blade. The blade is only 1/4” thick and th...

My First Exercise In Boulle Marquetry #1: A Day With The Shipwright!

03-19-2015 06:36 PM by Luke Addington | 5 comments »

I spent the day with Paul Miller yesterday and got my first taste of Boulle Marquetry. I have been interested in marquetry for about 4 years now. This was a huge learning experience. The Chevalet was very intuitive to use. I found it pretty easy to stay dead on the lines (this speaks more to the fact that this was a simple exercise and an excellent tool than any kind of skill I might possess, those tiny details in the coyotes tail were the most difficult part to cut). Sand shading and ...
