Not The Wood, But The Woodworker

02-01-2009 10:21 PM by woodyoda | 16 comments »

I’m sure allot of you male woodworkers know this problem….cracked hands. I don’t know if anyone else has a blog on this, but if anyone has some good ideas on help for this, I’m listening…’s the problem, after years of working with toxic chemicals, like mek, silicone and denatured alcohol….common to the glass trade, my hands crack every years, especially in the winter. If I have to wear latex gloves, it just gets worse….but i can’t ...

Curved Panels - adding another dimension to woodworking. #2: Building "flat" curved cabinet doors - 101

02-22-2009 03:06 AM by John8059 | 3 comments »

Note that this is Part 2 of a series and you may want to look at Part 1 to make some sense of it. I don’t have any pictures of the form I built for the flower boxes or any construction pictures so I am skipping right to the 2nd project I introduced in Part 1. If I explain the flower box panels at the end of the series, it will be much easier to understand. Further, it was very similar to making the panels for the last project I’ll cover – the curved vanity doors. The entertainment cen...

Another day, another nickle #36: Merry Christmas

12-16-2015 01:56 AM by Thos. Angle | 6 comments »

Hello every body. I just bumped off Grumpy on his post but I will just go ahead and wish every body a very Merry Christmas. If that won’t work for you how about Happy Hannakah, or Happy Holidays. I’m not on this site as much anymore but I do think of my friends here on LJ frequently. It’s still hard to believe how this site has grown. When I joined I think there were about 1200 members and probably 30 active. I learned a lot from all of you and had a great time in this l...

Inlay card table refurbish #5: Teak oil application

12-19-2015 02:48 PM by peterrum | 1 comment »

I have now applied two coats of teak oil to the table to seal it up a bit and hopefully this will help to reduce the amount of air bubbles that can show up during the epoxy application. I am still researching which bar top epoxy to use so it may be a while before my next post. I will probably have to get it mail ordered in after the Christmas season. At any rate, here is a photo. I like the way the teak oil has popped the different colours of the wood.

What the wife wants I guess she gets #2: Entertainment Center #2

03-28-2009 06:09 AM by roundabout22 | 0 comments »

Once I had the cabinet home I (she) had to decide how she wanted to set up all the electronics. We (she) decided it would be better if both the top and bottom sections had doors on them, and we needed to put a couple shelves in to hold the dvd player, vcr, etc… Space in the upper opening is a little tight so there will be just enough room for a shelf, and by taking out one of the drawers we can put another shelf in the lower cabinet. This is what I got accomplished shortly after ...

Table Saw Restoration #1: Craftsman 113.241691 Flex Drive Table Saw

12-25-2015 02:07 PM by Avi | 2 comments »

Backstory: Hi all! I’ve landed on this website through many a google search related to projects I’ve worked on and I thought I would give back to the community by posting a journal of my table saw restorations. This is my second restoration. The first was of another craftsman (Model No. 315.228390) which went very well, I unfortunately didn’t take pictures along the way. After using that saw for a week or 2, the arbor bearings decided to fail and it now makes a terrible soun...

Bandsaw Spacer Block

06-08-2009 07:15 PM by Joshua Howe | 2 comments »

Okay I have a question my band saw apparently takes an odd size blade 92 inch.So my local woodcraft doesn’t carry this size but they offered to have it made and sent to my house.I haven’t done this yet because I want to put a spacer block in the band saw. My thoughts are that I can fabricate a spacer to the height I would need to run a 105 inch blade. So if I am running a 92 inch blade how large of a spacer block do I need to get to 105? And I was also wondering if anyone ha...
