Baby Cradle #2: step 2 - shaping the base

10-17-2009 05:17 AM by Bob Giovannini | 2 comments »

I am pretty psyched how this is coming along. This week I started shaping the base. I used a band saw with 76 degree bevel and used a belt sander with table angled at the same bevel to clean the edge. Scribing the line an inch inside the oval for spindle placement, took more time expected. This week I will scoop out the center and contour the edges.

An Idea For Scroll Sawing

11-02-2009 09:06 PM by stefang | 17 comments »

Awhile back I had to do some scroll sawing with the table tilted. I found it difficult to hold the workpiece and move it around on the tilt, so I started trying to figure a way where I could keep the table flat and still saw at an angle. That required that I would have to be able to tilt the whole saw. I also wanted a scrollsaw table that was easily adjustable in height. This feature was important because my grandkids use the scrollsaw too, and they are still a lot shorter than me. I don&#...

Sycamore Dresser #5: Dovetails Done, Ready To Sand & Finish

01-02-2010 03:24 AM by Ben | 12 comments »

I finally finished the drawers. This was my first attempt at dovetails. I made them using an Incra jig my neighbor gave me. I used wooden drawer slides. The drawers were pretty time consuming. Actually, this whole project has been time consuming. I have thoroughly enjoyed it though. The knobs are obviously a little different but, my six year old reallly likes them. I guess I can always change them out when he gets a little older. The construction is solid wood except for the pl...

Alaska Jim's Comments of the Day #12: Working on the may be an interesting weekend

02-04-2010 04:58 AM by Jim Bertelson | 7 comments »

I glued up the back fence. I used an old B&D Workmate to do much of the clamping, but it didn’t allow me to sit the fence on a flat surface. The result was not optimum. Tried a little planing and sanding. Nope. I went out and bought a bunch of miscellaneous clamps, long overdue. I now have about 1/10th of the clamps I will probably need…..(-: .........remembering you never have enough clamps. So cut some new pieces…..the back fence is only 3 inches high…..and t...

Another Craigslist Score....Powermatic Drill Press!

03-15-2010 03:18 AM by Brad_Nailor | 6 comments »

Bam! I was lurking in the shadows of Craigslist and what did i see? An older gentleman selling all his woodworking equipment and moving into a smaller place. I couldn’t tell from the picture in the post what the make of the DP was but I recognized that familiar Powermatic gold paint! I emailed and the son who was listing it for his computer illiterate father sent me a huge picture of it and sure enough it was a Powermatic drill press. I arranged to go look at it, the guys place was abou...

Works for me #10: Fence Clamps - Addendum

04-08-2010 05:20 PM by Dave Owen | 1 comment »

My blog, “Works for me #9: Fence Clamps”, was about a number of uses I’ve discovered for fence clamps. Because of the positive responses to that blog, I decided to describe a couple of additional uses I came up with while building a small, portable table for a Bosch Colt trim router. (a blog on the table itself will be posted within a week or so.).The photo shows a portion of the table and the fence to illustrate both ideas. I decided to make a simple. one-piece fence for...
