Homecraft table saw

08-15-2014 09:49 PM by drnic | 2 comments »

I just purchased a Homecraft 8” table saw (circa 1955 Model 34-500 I believe) for $50…runs great, has a newer 1 HP motor, but has a wobbly arbor. If the local tools repair shop cannot fix it with replacement bearings, is there a source for a new arbor?

Cherry Curved-Front Desk #2: SLOWLY finishing the legs, first glue-up

09-07-2014 01:13 AM by CharlesA | 0 comments »

This build is going slow because each piece is complicated and because the steps are a bit different than the usual fair. I also ran into some complications with my mortiser bits. But the first step of the build is now done. I marked the mortises carefully And then cut them on the mortiser. Cleaned up the mortises with a chisel—done with the mortises. I cut the double curves on the front legs (back legs were already done) on the bandsaw. With this build, the instructions ...

shop jigs/furniture/fixtures #10: wall bench #4 (drawer fronts installed and a bit more)

10-02-2014 02:03 AM by Tugboater78 | 3 comments »

Got up fairly early this mornin. After a few cups of coffee and a shower I went out to the shop. I had cut, routed some roundovers, and stained/finished the drawer fronts yesterday. Was waiting for electrical inspector to stop by and give the thumbs up on my new service connection on the house (he didn’t show up till 4:30pm though said he would be there in the morning) I am all good on that, now I just gotta take the paperwork to utility company and coordinate a switch. Left bank...

Box Swap

10-26-2014 01:31 AM by OldWrangler | 5 comments »

Today the box for the box swap came in. Well crafted and pretty wood (looks like oak) but the damn Post Office had the box for 14 days (sent priority) and mangled the outside and damaged the wooden box. I can repair it but there is no excuse for this. The sender should report it to the P.O. and collect on the automatic insurance that comes with priority. Take a look at the pics. And if the sender sees this, contact me, please.

Nakashima Inspired Walnut Slab Table #4: Finished (Almost)

01-22-2015 03:31 PM by Marshall | 7 comments »

I spent the better part of the last two weeks applying Arm R Seal to the table. The table top got four brushed coats of full strength Arm R Seal on each side. Between each coat I buffed with a 1000 grit festool platin pad. I then wiped on a 50/50 mix of Arm R Seal and Naphtha on each side. Here is the top after the fourth coat: And after the final wipe on coat: The base got five coats of wiped on Arm R Seal/Mineral Spirits 50/50 mixture: Finally, it was time to attach the b...

Been busy struggling to hang onto my job. I hope any of you who have been following me understand. It is a very scary situation for us in the Oil and Gas industry on the manufacturing side of things. I am not sure when I will be able to contribute again to this Blog or make any new designs. I hope you all understand and appreciate your patience during these trying times. I am sure this is not just located to my situation but to a vast majority of Americans throughout these United States.

Working with recycled timber #40: AKs ToolMakers Chest Filling Sanding and Routing 9 Drawers

Well here I am back again with the afternoons progress. I finished all the drawer bases using available MDF and Plywood 2x were MDF offcuts and 7 x were Plywood offcuts. I then dry fitted everything together to ensure it was ready to glue. I set to work glueing everything up using a paint brush to apply the Titebond III. Once they were glued on went the band clamps and a check for squareness done.As I didnt have enough band clamps the drawers were done in three secessions which ...

No much new

03-09-2015 05:26 PM by bkseitz | 0 comments »

Been a month or two since I last got into the shop, work, household chores, helping son with an engine swap and getting new truck. Managed to route out a sign—still needs finishing—for my newly fenced in pasture. Finished Roof of Goat Barn—still a lot of wall and door work to do. Decided on the RapidAire 1/4” tubing kit, but haven’t had the time to order, much less install. Hopefully, end of month I’ll have a weekend free to finish sign and router tab...

Fancy End Table #1: Midway through project

03-12-2015 11:48 PM by PeteCollin | 0 comments »

Hello All, I have an acquaintance who has done some large favors for me over the last couple of years. I was compelled to recompense him somehow, eventually insisting he let me make for him the woodshop project of his choice. After powwowing with his wife, they came back with three choices of an end table, and this is the one i decided to make: [URL=][IMG]
