From my blog: Progress! The table top is back, cut to final length, and sanded (sorry, no chance to take photos of my friend’s amazing shop). I beveled the edges, using a table edge bit for the topside, and a small, 1/8-inch roundover for the bottom side. Routing the top bevel free-hand requires much care and concentration, as this bit is large: The bevel profile: I am very pleased with the overall appearance of this table top. The bevel will provide a much bett...
Here’s a picture slideshow of the before and after of my Evapo-Rust experiance with my Stanley 9 1/2 plane.
Table n;eeds legs, right? Didn’t have enough walnut to make any decent ones…..I did have a slab of white oak, though…..Had to haul it to the shop, first. Today, did a couple crosscuts. Used the Vintage saw for this job….going to be a power tool day.. This is set up for the second cut. First cut was to trim the end as square as I could…left this piece as a cutoff.. Second cut, I had a clamp back at the rear, to keep things from moving too far. This...
tried to delete since i was told I was spam I was merely boasting of a talented artist BUT never mind
sorry for jumping to the end but, the customer wanted it for Christmas, Ill post more pictures on the project site and add a link here
Putting on the tape and mud isn’t so bad. However, sanding absolutely sucks! There, I feel much better. Actually, things are going pretty well. I have about 60% of the garage/shop done. I still have another coat to put on some spots and the area above the garage door to finish. I’m planning to run some wiring in the next week and look to build a small lumber storage area above the garage door. I’m not cramped, by any means, in here but any additional storage is alw...
This is yet another item that I had no experience for and no idea how to execute. I did a lot of research, lots of Googling and YouTube-ing hoping to find a nice two-point router jig to cut the curves. Sure there was an incredible amount of videos and articles showing how to cut trim inlay grooves on straight edges, but I could find nothing for the stupid curve. So this is how I did it. To create the two point guide for my trim router I threaded two small, but relatively long bolts into...
I am currently trying to establish a work area/shop in my garage. It is a challenge as one might imagine trying to find space in which to do so, but things are coming along pretty good. I have the workbench just about finished, all I have left to do is finish the table top. Next, I hope to build some sort of tool cabinet in which to make tool storage a little better.
So, I started my woodworking life with a Black and Decker 13amp $100 table saw last fall. I installed a lam floor with it in October, but frankly…. it’s just not all that one hopes for in a table saw. I’m sure you’ll agree with me on that. So, I started looking on Craig’s List for a table saw with a steel top, decent-sized working surface and a square fence. Missing from that list was SAFETY! So I found an ad for a Craftsman Electronic TS, Model number 113.290...
Well – I’ve certainly fallen behind on my blog. My apologies for not getting it finished by now. I got absolutely slammed for Christmas. I did three shows in December and did a lot of one on one selling and had my day job going on. Between all that I’m just plum wore out. So I’m resting this week and the weekend and will get back in the shop on Monday the 4th and start working on the end grain portion of the blog. Hopefully the first portion of my blog helped someon...
