Lamp - Shoji, midcentury modern - inspired #3: Dimensioning lumber adventure

05-21-2009 02:23 AM by AaronK | 2 comments »

With 50+ pieces in this design, it’s now an adventure in dimensioning lumber. Which is made lots easier by my new planer, which works really well. The walnut, as i said before, was free, and quite warped/cupped/bowed. pretty much everything. So I needed a sled to help the planing/jointing/4-square process: built on particleboard, which isnt the best, but it did well enough considering that after using my table saw to do its most accurate, precise work demanded of it yet with ...

Dust Collector #3: Sealing up the Contractor's saw for dust

06-15-2009 12:39 AM by sjbob | 3 comments »

I’ve been planning on doing a backplate for my old Delta 34-444 Contractor’s saw to seal it up for dust collection..I looked at a couple of things online, and the diagram from the Taunton book looked very close, I recreated the positions and angles for myself, drew it up in SketchUp – but then could not print out lifesize drawings (so gave up on that). Next I played with cardboard, doing the radii with string & pencil, then followed it up today with hardboard. I was ...

My stuff is starting to sell

07-01-2009 03:56 AM by Rustic | 7 comments »

Hey Guys and Gals, Just thought that I would let you all know that I sold another cribbage board (seperate from the craft mall). I also made a double business card holder that can hold at least 5 different sets of business cards. I will try to get a pic of it soon. Sold the board for $15.00 and the card holder for $10.00. I am working on some new stuff for the craft mall too. The bed is on a temp hold until I can get the money together for it. Rick

Unisaw restoration #2

08-05-2009 08:11 PM by MedicKen | 10 comments »

With work and family I have had very little time to work on my recent restoration project. It is a 1968 Delta unisaw with a 2hp 3 phase motor. As you may remember from the previous installment I had it torn apart and was working on cleaning the cabinet and trunnion assembly. I have completed the cleaning and have painted the trunnion, installed new arbor bearings and have it reassembled. I finally got around to working on the cabinet. There were numerous holes that had been placed in the c...

This is one of those plaques: I’m not that good with my hands,and If you have any tips for me on what can I do so t...

I was able to spend some quality time with the brad nailer, hot glue gun, and sisal rope yesterday, I am down to having about 3’ of 2×4s to wrap in rope left, and then upholster the top tier i...

Going to Woodworking School #1: The First Day of School

10-30-2009 08:27 PM by John Fleming | 3 comments »

Thursday, August 27, 2009 The First Day of School I don’t think I slept the night before the first day of Woodworking School. I had been waiting five years to do this, now it was actually going to happen. Maybe I was worried about going to school again after all these years, or I might just have been excited about the next phase of life. How many of us dream about the day we can do the things we want? My day to do that very thing has finally happened. To go back a few years five t...
