Rookie Mistake #1: A sad day for Mike

01-21-2008 09:34 PM by Mike Lingenfelter | 17 comments »

I almost didn’t share this amazing stupid mistake with everyone, but the outcome is likely to be a very positive. After Christmas I bought a new Lie Nielsen #7, with money I got from my family and some of mine. It came in last week and this weekend I used it for the first time. I got the blade all tuned up and took a few passes on a test board and centered the blade. Then started to true up some boards, I had just milled for my new workbench. After a little while I started to see...

Building My New Work Bench #1: Building the Frame

10-24-2015 01:16 AM by Roger Kimmel | 0 comments »

This is my old work bench. It came with the house. It has a built-in ashtray and it looks like the stretchers were recycled from an old road barricade. It is wobbly and scarred, and it is time to replace it. I decided to construct the frame from 6’ 1×4 white pine from Home Depot. I laminated the legs from three pieces. Before gluing, I used my router to mill mortises in the center pieces of the laminations. Here are the four legs clamped during the gluing of the first tw...

Evolution of my Small Woodshop #5: A Router Table you can eat off

10-28-2015 03:46 PM by monster1971 | 1 comment »

My current workbench is a hand-me down kitchen cabinet from my mother in law. A mid grade 3 drawer w/ a butcher block top. I didn’t want to take it at first but then thought…...this would be nice in my woodshop. I threw some wheels on it for mobility and the drawers actually are convenient for holding hold a lot of my power tools. Top is semi sturdy. Fast forward and I thought this would be a great router table. Deciding on a router plate: Did I even need a router p...

Switched DW746 to 220V

03-03-2008 12:36 AM by sIKE | 2 comments »

What a difference this makes! It took about twenty minutes to do and I am kicking myself for not doing it sooner. The saw when I turn the power switch on is at full speed almost instantly, when it is at 110V it takes a couple of seconds to get up and going. The only thing I had to purchase was the 220 plug, and 1 additional wire nut (already on hand) and your done. If you have been putting off doing this, move it up on your list you will be extremely happy!

tote for tools #2: Another hour, another corner

11-06-2015 03:48 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

At this rate, it might take awhile. Managed to get one hour of work in, before the back started to have …”issues” Laid out the lines on the end panel, had to check several times to make sure that THIS was the way the pins go. Since some diddn’t like my use of the old crosscut saw to cut pins with, I tried out the Disston backsaw I have.. Had a lot of trouble with the cuts, even with some wax on the blade…..ah, needed the rip style one. This saw was le...

A Redirection

04-28-2008 08:24 PM by Texasgaloot | 5 comments »

There are some things that just happen that you can’t see coming.I started woodworking with my Dad in our cold, Western New York one-car garage back when gentlemen still wore hats and nobody cussed in public. It was usually fun, and always educational. I still remember messing about trying to build stuff, and having Daddy walk by and very gently suggest doing it “like this” and experiencing the resulting Cecil B. DeMille parting of the clouds with the chorus singing in the...

Originals #1: Cupcake Box

11-10-2015 12:36 AM by Sioranth | 0 comments »

So, I’m having a bit of woodworking ADD lately while trying to work on holiday gifts. I have a million things to do so of course I’m procrastinating. I decided to attempt making my own pattern and went with a simple cupcake box. I’ve seen the ones that are round and look like actual cupcakes, but I wanted mine to be a flat box with a sort of intarsia top. I drew up the pattern in Inkscape and started cutting. The box is being glued at the moment so I’ll cut it tomorrow...

Urban logging #1: A small victory in urban logging (part 1)

05-23-2008 02:13 PM by Daren Nelson | 19 comments »

I am an “Urban Logger”. I only mill trees from town. There is a reason for this. I am a tree hugger (yea really) Not the stereotype, insert your own mental picture here, that have given that title a negative connotation. BUT, I do love trees. I think they are magnificent. I know this sounds weird from a guy that runs a sawmill, you would think I just feel they are for me to chop down and mill and make money from. It’s not like that at all . I started sawmilling just to keep ...
