My Old Tools...!

08-09-2010 02:23 PM by Cozmo35 | 9 comments »

This is my first “blog” and I am not sure if this is even the right place to post it because I am not real clear as to what a “blog” really is! I made it to this rock we call earth just in time to be considered a baby boomer. I just caught the tail end of it (my life story). Any who,…I was cleaning up my garage/shop the other day (my wife says it’s about time!) when I started taking a closer look at the caliber of tools I have and have had for many,…many years. I got to thinking back to how I...

Bedrails #1: Getting started.

08-24-2010 01:16 AM by AnnaEA | 6 comments »

The Bee’s bunk bed needs some bed rails. I spent a few hours staring at the bed and scribbling little sketches, then another hour or so wandering around the hardware store and lumber yard buying stuff I probably don’t need, and have spent another nice while this afternoon getting started making the rails. First up, assemble these parts into slots to to fit these rails I cut all the wood to measure yesterday, which involved lots of running up and down from the ...

cutting plexiglass

09-05-2010 11:56 AM by BigTiny | 25 comments »

Greetings all. I have a question. I’m building a table saw cross cut sled and intend using plexiglass as a top. What I need is some guidance in how to cut the stuff. I think it will work on the table saw, but not positive. If it can be done on the TS, what blade would be best?

Jointer Restoration #1: Tool Gloat

09-17-2010 05:27 AM by HokieMojo | 11 comments »

I got this tool at a GREAT price on craigslist about a year ago. I actually remember the day. I was listening to the Hokie game on the radio on the way back from my purchase and I literally RAN into the house to see my Hokies complete one of the greatest comeback drives I’ve witnessed in my 15 years of watching Hokie football. Tyrod Taylor had lofted an 80 yard pass to Danny Coale against Nebraska and was about to complete the comback with an amazing scramble and touchdown pass just ...

New experiences #2: Cutting curves with a router

10-01-2010 12:26 AM by albachippie | 1 comment »

For the project I am currently working on, I required a perfect curve for the front of a desk and for two shelves. Because the top material is Melamine Faced Chipboard, I decided to strengthen this by using construction grade ply. This gave me a good practice material to get the curve right, before cutting the MFC, which is 3 times the price of ply! Although I own two routers, I have never really used them to cut. I was looking through Fine Woodworking website and came across a build off vide...

Chatoyance in figured walnut

10-13-2010 04:23 AM by ocwoodworker | 2 comments »

I want to make matching drawer fronts that will require two pieces for a single front face. Does anyone know if it matters if you use a bookmatch cut in cutting veneer of figured walnut or is it reeeealy necessary to use a slip match in order to avoid chatoyance? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Tip Tuesday #2: Furniture Polish

11-17-2010 03:16 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

When cleaning furniture, a little water is usually all you need. Most of the time you don’t need store bought furniture polishes or waxes. Most furniture these days just need to be dusted and if really dirty cleaned with a moist rag. Wax will build up and can leave the finish streaky and sticky. Some products may even have a solvent in them to cut oil and grease that can soften the finish of the piece. What I normally do is wet a rag and wring it out as much as possible. This le...

Contemporary Cross project #3: Initial cuts of interior parts

11-29-2010 02:48 AM by kevinw | 0 comments »

We are now ready to begin sawing out our components. By hot gluing the two boards together this allows us to cut two identical pieces of each part so that they will fit properly. Note that I am only sawing out the interior shapes of the cross at this point. This will allow me to have better control when re-gluing. Here the vertical piece has been cut out. Keep in mind that you must get the best cut possible. Be sure your blade is narrow enough that it can saw the curves without backing up ...
