What to do with a 200 year old maple tree #1: Introduction

02-10-2011 06:13 AM by superstretch | 4 comments »

When I bought this house over a year ago, one of the defining features was one of the 200 year old maple trees that ran along the road. While the main trunk was cut off several feet above the first set of branches, it still manages to drop leaves to a depth of 2’ in some places. Whilst out shoveling the driveway the other day, I heard the tree popping and snapping every few minutes. I figured I should get an arborist or some sort of tree person over to take a look. Sure enough, ...

Router Table by Julie #5: the doors and drawers

03-01-2011 08:49 PM by ~Julie~ | 10 comments »

It’s time to add the doors to my router table. They are made with pine, with 1/4” thick plywood panels, the same as the sides. I run a groove down the middle of the stiles and rails for the panels to fit into, which also allow the tenons of the rails to fit into the stiles: The door in front of the router will have a plexiglass panel, so the groove needs to be thinner for the plexi than for the tenons. So, I put a narrower groove using the table saw, to hold the plexi and th...

Quest for cedar Part 4

03-13-2011 12:13 AM by dickson | 2 comments »

I have plans to continue making cedar for the outdoors by making garden boxes on either side of the ramp that leads into my storage shed. I’m the only one that loves fresh vegetables; so, I’ll have a small space, that will no longer have to be mowed!, and instead have a small tomato garden just to satisfy my cravings this summer. I’m going to continue my flower beds and add cedar chips as mulch. After that I plan to pursue more outdoor cedar furniture by designing deck end t...

End Mill vs. Spiral Up-Cut Router Bit

04-07-2011 02:25 AM by nobuckle | 6 comments »

Nothing special here. Just my thoughts on one type of cutter compared to another. In this video I put a 3/4” two flute high speed steel end mill in my router table to show how well an end mill will cut. The router is set at 10,000 rpm and I make two cuts that are around 3/8” deep. For me the issue is settled. But for you, will it be two flute end mill or spiral up-cut? !!
