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...

WorkBench #3: Base just about ready for glue up

06-15-2009 09:09 AM by grimt | 3 comments »

It’s been a while but I finally finished the last tenon on the long rails. I couldn’t wait to dry assemble so I could get an idea of how it will look. Here is a photo of the base: The next picture is the base plus one of the pieces for the top. This showed me how high the bench will be. Using the heel of the hand measuring technique the bench sits just right which makes it a wee bit high as I want to add some feet. I’ll just need to make the feet 10mm and ha...

Shop Remodel #31: In the thick of it.

01-06-2016 12:38 AM by bearkatwood | 2 comments »

Today was the beginning and then end. The Alpha and well, the beta would work I guess. Not really the end, just a good step on the brakes. I cleaned up the shop this morning and pulled out the 94 BF of eastern hard maple I have been saving up for the bench. It is going to free up a lot of room by my mill, but I am sure I will take care of that, can’t have any uncluttered corners in a wood shop now can we. I measured and re-measured and came to a conclusion, I just don’t hav...

Craftsman Side Table #3: Tenons and first test fit

01-08-2016 12:32 AM by DanMelander | 0 comments »

Worked on the tenons. Here are some photos of the horizontal router I used. After some careful setup to make sure everything is square and the depth of the cut is correct, I was able to make all the tenons in a short time. After tweaking the tenons, I did the first dry fit. Starting to look like a table! Now I need to add some dados for the drawer support pieces, slats, and lower shelf.

Workshop 2016 #2: Christmas blessings.

01-11-2016 12:59 AM by Ty Sullivan | 4 comments »

Christmas 2015 was one that held many changes for me and inherently for my woodworking too. In the past my family has been pretty diligent in purchasing tools for me of all sorts and has filled in the gaps of those items that are required for pushing my skills upwards. However, the larger sized powertools have always been slightly out of reach for me by way of monetary limitations or just that my family didn’t feel comfortable making a purchase that requires a lot of knowledge. I.E. h...
