Hi, I want to build a table saw cabinet on casters.I have limited space and I need to store it under my workbench.I see a lot of cabinets with rollers or casters here.My question is with the casters or rollers. Does it make the cabinet wobbly while you’re trying to use it? Has anyone come up with a way to lift the cabinet up off the wheels?
Wow did I ever bite off a lot when I decided to deal with the curved top but all in all seems to be coming along nicely. Just softening up the edges and getting ready to clean up some holes. I’m starting to wish I had developed a hardwood plan instead of going with plywood. Also I found the color I wanted in the shape of my impact screwdriver case. My semi retired mechanics tools seem to still be coming in handy. lol
I like to turn the knobs on the cases I build. Dr. White’s chest has a total of twelve knobs. I’m not a skilled turner, but that hasn’t stopped me from building a lot of furniture with turned parts. Turning a batch of knobs that is “identical” could drive a turner to another hobby. However, it’s not too difficult to turn out a batch that matches “close enough.” Remember, this is a handmade project and hand-turned knobs scream craftsmanship. Watch this video to see how I turn out the kno...
Today’s post will be short, as I am in the drawing stage of things and I must admit that I didn’t get a lot done in that department yesterday. My car has just turned ten years old, and as it gets older, I realize that it will require more maintenance. It is part of having an older car, I realize and I just have to allow for some extra time to take care of things. But the day was somewhat shot, so I really don’t have a lot to report. I can say though that last week ...
This will be a sparse outline of an Incra Router Cabinet Build. I know it’s a blog but am going to open with a review anyway. My initial impression of the LS-25 Super System was positive. The stand and table have substantial weight together and seem stable enough right out of the box. The LS-25 deserves a review all on it’s own. I love the system bunches and hate it a little too. Just like any good relationship should be. Pros – Almost zero learning curve, accura...
Time to finish finishing this bowl. Before parting off make sure the inside of the bowl is finished to your satisfaction. Once parted from the waste block re-mounting to work on the inside gets difficult. Parting the bowl from the waste block is really quite simple. Run a parting tool between the waste block and bottom of the bowl but don’t part all the way off. You don’t want the bowl popping off the lathe at speed and risk damaging all your hard work. I left about 1 1/2...
”When the Student is ready, the Teacher will appear.”Buddhist saying Joan found a class for me in the Cambridge Center for Adult Ed catalog on the subject of sharpening blades and scrapers. It was taught by a wood artisan, Dan Paret, who uses mainly hand tools in his work. As it turns out, we are friends with him and his wife, though we have not seen them in a few years. Even though I have not completed my experiments with Brent’s methods, I decided to take the class...
Have you ever had a table saw that made you shiver whenever you turned it on? The kind with a fence that clamped on each end and needed to be squared every time you adjusted it? Maybe to square the blade, you had to move the whole arbor assembly instead of the top? To top it off, the arbor had about 1/64 of wobble to it? I don’t know what it’s called in your world but in mine it’s called Craftsman. To be fair, this particular one is from the 60s….I think. It was ...
Would like to get togather with woodturners from eastern Ohio or western pa. and upper panhandle of WVa.
I have two leg vises, neighter is a pinless system but i like both of them and use them full time. I also I have an end vise which has its own uses. So this isnt because i need a vise, just intrested in the pinless idea and want to build one. I have looked at all the different pinless systems i can find online and one i seen at a woodworking show. There seems to be something lost in the whole idea. All we want to do is keep the outer chop paralle to the inter chop (leg). To do this man...
