Trestle Table Desks #4: Shaping the feet and anticipating an uneven floor

1342 days ago by Lee Barker | 1 comment »

These desks will sit on a tile floor—notoriously uneven—so I needed to allow a little extra thickness at the end in case I need to install teenuts with adjustable nylon glides. I’ll keep that option open, perhaps prepping the bottom for the teenuts but not installing them unless necessary. To accommodate that, I needed to thicken the tips of the feet—an added half inch of cherry. I picked my radius—inch and an eighth—and the length ...

Is the myth that all Power tools are made in the same place TRUE????

1316 days ago by Delta356 | 21 comments »

Hi all, I propose this question because I have seen a lot of LJ say that Harbor Freight tools are made by the same tool maker of the Top tool brands, DELTA MACHINERY, DEWALT, PORTER CABLE, HITACHI ECT… Is this a myth or true. You can not compare Harbor Freight tools to Delta tools. The quality is not there with Harbor Freight.Many say they there all the same tool, and they just color them and put a sticker on them. I can see that , because I look at harbor Freight tools and many look li...

Pizza Paddle FInish

1302 days ago by WoodArtbyJR | 5 comments »

My daughter received a pizza paddle for Christmas (not from me). She went online to see how to season it and found suggestions to use tung oil. She called me to question this. She said that the article also stated that it would take about two weeks to get it finally seasoned using tung oil. It also stated the hardening tung oil would also help the pizza slide off the paddle easier. Not having a clue I told her I would submit this the you all (THE EXPERTS IN ALL THINGS WOOD). OK, here...

Workshop #14: Table Saw Workcenter - outfeed basis

1289 days ago by rweitz | 1 comment »

I have gotten some Ridgid Flip top stands for Christmas and I love them! Would not have been able to do this project without the pair of them. One alone would not have done it. Still I planned the extra depth on this work center so I could add some outfeed area to the back of the saw. That is why the cabinets extend beyond the table top – out to about the back of the blade guard mounting post. Once I get the side supports in place I can have a short outfeed top to cover the area ...

Roubo from a weed, or how I have come to hate red oak

1279 days ago by Jon Spelbring | 3 comments »

Like many jocks out there, I’m in the process of building a new workbench. It will be pretty close to the Roubo that Chris Schwarz built, but sadly, my top will not be made out of pretty (if punky) cherry. No, I was fortunate(?) to have a supply of very thick red oak planks to work with. The top is made up of 3 pieces at 7.5” wide by 4” thick by 7’ long. It’s a beast! The legs are from the same stock, trimmed to 3”x5”. I’ve finished cutt...

One Man's Furniture is Another Man's Pizza?

1258 days ago by HungryTermite | 11 comments »

I work as a design engineer and every once in a while someone will build a mockup at home and bring it in to illustrate a point they are trying to make about a design. The other day someone came in with a crudely made wooden mockup made up of what looked like poplar stained to look like walnut. Knowing that people use poplar as a walnut look-a-like and thinking to myself that it seemed like a lot of trouble to go through for a mockup that didn’t even have tight fitting or square joint...

Utility Cart Mods #3: In use ...

1248 days ago by ChunkyC | 1 comment »

Well I’ve been using the newly modify utility cart now for sometime now. I’ve gotten a lot of use out of it the last couple of weeks and I have to say that it works great! I just built some upper cabinets for my shop, can never have too much storage eh? And I can tell you that my back loves the cart! Because it’s now the same height as the table saw, the out feed table / assembly table, et al. in the shop, I don’t really have to lift anything. I can just slide i...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #296: Better Late Than Never

1214 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Hi guys and girls! Is it too late to post today?? I hope not. It has been an incredibly eventful couple of days and this was the first chance I actually got to write. The show was crazy/busy today which is a great thing. I was there late last night doing the judging of the projects and I needed to get up early today for a 6:30 breakfast with the other judges. They kept me on quite a schedule. I have lots of stories and pictures for you all, but it is still difficult for me to write t...
