Dado Blade Help

07-19-2008 12:53 AM by Brad | 8 comments »

So I need to get myself a dado blade. There was an article i had read i believe on a few months back that went through how to pick the correct dado blade for your saw. I have the old Craftman contractors saw with the flex drive. It’s on 110v. But in a few months I am going to pick up the new Sawstop contractors saw. I don’t want to “wobble” blade those things look and sound like nothing but a pain in the butt with poor results.

Google Sketchup - Come Along for the Ride #18: Drawer sides -- struggling along

08-10-2008 02:37 AM by Betsy | 8 comments »

It’s been a few days since I’ve worked on this—- and won’t be doing much today, but I’m working on the drawer for the hall table. This is how I’ve redrawn it. The sides are 1/2” x. 10.25” x 3.5” Drew the first side to above dimensions and then made it into a component. Then moved the side to 13 7/8” (outside to outside) and then flipped along red axis. (Because this is a basic rectangle – flipping it won̵...

Cutting pegs for a peg game

10-04-2008 04:34 AM by Rustic | 0 comments »

Over the last few days I have been making some peg games for a craft show that I have coming up. As I had come up with a way for me to cut then on the TS (just a board with a hole in it that I could hold against the fence). I had an awesome idea to make a jug that rides on the fence instead of against it. All this talk of jigs over this last week I thought I had better get busy and make some of my own. So that is what I have been upto the last few days. I have also been surfing the LJ site mo...

Outfitting the workshop #4: The Ceiling is done!

11-06-2008 01:20 PM by Mark Shymanski | 2 comments »

About a week ago my wife surprised me with the offer to hire someone to finish installing the ceiling in my shop…I don’t seem to ever have enough time to get in there and do it and I was finding it difficult to do singlehandedly. Well Jenn hired a fellow two days ago and he expressed an interest in having some of the benches and big tools moved before he started. Jenn and I discussed this over the phone and I said I’d be able to move things around this weekend. Jenn passe...

Renovation - Industrial Warehouse #3: The Proud Pauper's Way

02-05-2009 06:36 AM by Scott Parsons | 6 comments »

Finally some photos. Doesn’t look like much but I have high hopes. These are some pictures of the pine for the counter top. Heather enjoyed using the sander and did a fine job with getting the wood back to it’s original colour. Good girlfriend or what, eh? This picture below shows the line where I did the lap joint glue up to bring the length to an overall 129”. Here is the finishing process and the installed result. Still wet here. Installed no...

Turning slippery slope #9: Working on pens

02-25-2009 06:26 AM by Betsy | 7 comments »

I’ve mastered the simple straight line pens. Now I’m working on the European style pen. Must say I’m disappointed in my attempts. Part of my issue is I’m quiet sure I need to get better lighting and probably stronger glasses. Seems I have some trouble seeing the details. Of course, I can feel the tubes with my fingers – and I’ve come close – but when I take the pens off the lathe I end up with some divit or high spot. Lots of practice ahead of me. But...

Office #3: Dimensional Furniture #2

03-14-2009 04:24 AM by clieb91 | 3 comments »

Well I was able to work much of the day yesterday and today on my desk. Yesterday got stuff cut down and prepared for assembly. did some part sanding. I decided to use miter cuts for the legs similiar to my assembly tables in my shop. I like the look better then butt joints. To cut the miters I used a great miter jig I picked up at a yardsale last year for $5, best dang $5 I have spent in a long time. Of course like almost all of my projects I used the Kreg Jig. I do like it maybe a li...

A House Warming Gift #2: 2 + 2

03-31-2009 02:16 AM by littlecope | 1 comment »

Two hours on Friday, and two hours I managed to squeeze in Sunday afternoon, but the work progresses! Began Sunday by transferring the pattern I fabricated onto the wood I guess most attach the patterns to the wood, to be honest, I’ve never done it that way. When I started doing these, ready access to a simple copying machine was difficult to come by. The patterns were also considered precious to me and I didn’t want to cut them up. Anyway, I’ve continued doing them right on...
