Another log from the same load the “interesting” mulberry came from in my last entry…I thought this looked interesting as well. This white oak had laid in a back yard of an abandoned farm house and was forgotten about by people for a couple years…mother nature didn’t forget about it, she went to work spalting it. And did a nice job I might add.
for those who have small workspace , i thought this workbench was pretty cool . i have no info on it other than the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqW6GsN9Qs4
I spent time over the Christmas Vacation doing some upgrades and maintenance to my shop, while also doing actual woodworking projects like the mantle. Probably the biggest project was a complete tear-down, cleaning, and lubrication of my Powermatic 66. I posted about that here. After doing that I added the Wixey Digital Gauge and Leecraft Zero Clearance Insert. It was interesting fitting the insert with the Biesemeyer splitter because I wanted to remove as little of the insert as possibl...
A small conference table - the build #5: Glue-ups, surface flatness, anxiety, and 100X-200X magnification
On a previous post, on another forum, my friend rhino commented that removing the glue prematurely will lead to starving of the glue line. He was right, of course. nd I have photo evidence. Please read on. From my blog: I truly must stop reading Christopher Schwarz’s blog. First, it cost me $20 for the first copy of the EyeClops. Once I learned what a terrific “toy” it is, I bought another one (this one for $28, as the price went up) for use by our granddaughters. ...
Not much progress. LOML ok’d a grand on a jointer, so I sold my 6” delta and ordered a G0490X. So I finished dressing up the legs. A hair under 5”, but the ash finished nice and clean. Ends still rough, and weighing in around 33-34 inches each. Here they are on the old bench that the roubo is replacing.The old bench will take on duty as a stand for a 500lb milling machine and a small metal lathe (in the future).

OK, here’s a cool story…to me anyways…about my trip, Saturday 5/2/09, to the Woodcraft Store in Parkersburg, WV. I also wanted to pick up some cedar lumber for a patio table like the one Shaun built, in nearby Athens, OH. I had been doing some research on routers because I want to build a router table extension to my Grizzly TS and get rid of the piece of junk router table I bought at the blue box store ten years ago, housing a Skill Router that is so weak it doesn’t...
OK If you look at the cut list from the first post those 2×12x12’ are sliced up into a bunch of 33” long chunks and ripped in half and then again into 5 1/4” (for slop) The Tenon is achieved by tacking a block of Plywood (mine is 2 1/2”) wide at the Ends of two of the inner boards in the stack your going to glue up. I then Set up a stop in my miter Guage and choped 2 1/2 Off the outboard pieces and glued and clamped them… This is the setup before glue...
We need to set up things first… (this is just CLAMPED, to heavy to chop them as the top) The center is marked and the big triangle will help me put it back the right way.. The legs need to be positioned so that they are FLUSH or a bit proud (the way I went, to make them flush, by hand later) and you need a starting point then need to pick out the pretty legs for the front and such.. Once I noodled it all out. At the pointy end I wrote BACK and Left and Right with arrows. I pla...
Well it’s been 232 days since I last posted on my Kitchen remodel. It’s not that I haven’t done any work. It’s just that I haven’t posted. I’d built the base cabinets and installed them in earlier blogs and it was time to get the drawer fronts created. Let me say this, “My wife is a trooper, she is willing to live with the mess (begrudgingly), but she still puts food on the table and doesn’t make me take her out to eat until it’s fin...
