A quick story of stupidity!

01-12-2010 05:37 AM by MOJOE | 20 comments »

Well it happened, I was building a couple drawers for my boy’s dresser and had a small accident. While I was a little tired, I just didn’t think. I was cutting multiple pieces and assembling. Once 2 drawers were complete, I decided to cut the pieces for one additional drawer…..that is when it happened….kickback! Set up the fence to cross-cut a couple matching length pieces, but forgot to add the small scrap block spacer to allow for a gap for the off-cut piece. Le...

Window shelving #4: Table Saw is Back

02-02-2010 08:10 PM by Rustic | 5 comments »

Well, I got the table saw back and am now getting ready to continue with the process. It cost me $73.48 to get it fixed. Minus the 29.99 deposit I paid 43.49. So not bad. Will keep you updated as I make progress.

Humidor, Any suggestions?

02-25-2010 03:09 AM by dakremer | 3 comments »

So here is my humidor for my brother so far. The sides are oak. I made a convex cut in them with a table saw – first time ever doing it. turned out pretty good. The top and bottom are a hard maple. I got them from my neighbor who had some of his maple trees cut down and milled. I planed it down to 3/4 and cut it to size…. I’m wondering what you guys would do with the maple (top an bottom) Should I just chamfer them? Or leave as is? or plane them down thinner??...

Hooking up the dust collector

04-06-2010 11:57 PM by ocwoodworker | 9 comments »

Ok. So I went and upgraded my garage to have it’s own service. And wanting to switch over the DC to 220, I popped off the switch box and rewired the three wire to make it 220. My question is – “How come I have to run these big flipp’n 10 gauge wire that cost near a dollar/foot but when you get into the guts of the box it’s a flimmsy size that resembles speaker wire? Huh?

Drafting Desk #3: Finished Drafting Desk!

05-04-2010 08:51 PM by HighRockWoodworking | 0 comments »

I just finished my drafting/desk and finally brought it into the house this evening. This was a great project to make and there were two new techniques I used on this project, so I learned a lot. As part of the design for this desk I decided that I wanted a slight taper and curve to the legs and I wanted a deep red Mahogany color. After making a template for the legs I contemplated how to cut each leg out, the fastest way would have been to either use a flush trim bit with a router agains...

Local woods!

06-01-2010 05:33 AM by WoodenSoldier | 5 comments »

I’ve been bitching for a while about the price of wood here in Hawaii and then as fate would have it, I ran into a guy at an art show who turns bowls. I got to talking with him and he mentioned that he sells wood too. I stopped by his place today and he sells all local woods for super cheap (comparatively). He had some amazing stuff and he gets it all for free through his work so he doesn’t really worry about the profit! Awesome stuff. Here’s what I bought! From lef...
