I saw a description of a double screw Moxon vise made from a pair of handscrew clamps in a recent issue of Popular Woodworking and thought it would be a useful addition to my shop. I had some seldom used handscrew clamps and a 4’ Oak 3/4” x 5 1/2”, so off I went. My first bad decision came when I considered how to remove one of the handscrews from the clamps. The clamps are designed so that the handles on the screws stop the opening of the clamp before the screw...
Yes, It is true I’m giving away my Card Box and a copy of my book through Fine Woodworking. This will be hard for me to part with this box. But we decided a while back to have this part of the promotion for my book Wooden Boxes. I would feel better knowing that one of my Lumberjock Buddy’s could own this box from my collection. The editors from Fine woodworking will have a computer pick a random person that has entered the Giveaway. Well, good luck Lumberjocks, I hope the...
While waiting for Incra T-track plus to make my fence, I’m doing some maintenance on the SCMS itself. I haven’t said much about this saw, so here’s a quick review….. Milwaukee 6496 10” SCMS I purchased this new in ‘96 from Woodworkers Whse, in a package deal with a stand for ~$400. Milwaukee chop saws and sliders were the king of the hill back then, as the only dual miter SCMS on the market, with the motor mounted high and belt drive, was the ...
I left one chair fully upholstered and I stripped one to the bone a year ago. No it doesn’t take a year ;) I just stripped it and stashed it. That means I don’t have any current pictures to show you. I’ll need to come back to this post and flesh it out later. In the meantime, I put together an incomplete blog series on home refurbers. Since we weren’t getting much readership over there, I got lazy and didn’t flesh it out like I plan on doing here. This is actu...
Hello, Large scale need to remove bow from wood. What is an alternative option to flatten dimensional lumber if bowed? 85% of the bows are in the middle of the board. Steam wood, soak wood, or boil wood to form flat? I don’t have enough to plane So far I have created dimensional lumber from 2 large mesquite slabs and now I need to fix a bow in just about every board (50 pcs.) wood dims: L x W x H all in inches Biggest pieces: (4) 52×2.5×1.5 Smallest pieces: (...
Tooche is making me write a blog so I should probably start writing down my progress here.
Well, hello everyone. I’m new to Lumberjocks and happy to be a part of the community (I always wanted to be a jock!). I’m looking forward to sharing a bit of the process as I build a bread box for a friend from my college years. (It’s the least I can do since I missed his 40th birthday.) I was casting about for design ideas when my lovely wife reminded me that the lid to our bread box had just recently fallen with a crash onto the kitchen floor. Looks like I’m going to...
I’ve been using the assembly table in the shop for a little while now. I made the murphy bed and a couple other items and it came in handy. I like it.Please realize that my idea of an outfeed table as a combo assembly/outfeed table is a preference of mine and not necessarily of others. I downgraded from a woodworking bench with vices and such to this after I found that I needed outfeed and assembly capabilities more than a workbench. I use a combination of hand and power tools. I use po...
This week has been rather strange. I can't quite put my finger on it, but it didn't have the usual 'flow'. It seems that I was fluttering from here to there and while I was accomplishing some things, I don't quite feel that I was as organized as I could be and therefore not as efficient. My writings here have felt strange as well. I feel as if I have been all over the place work-wise, so reporting to you all each day only exemplifies that I am not in a pla...
