6 Inch ridgid jointer (jp06101) $100 dollars from a guy at work who didnt want it to see and rust away after only using it a handful of times, the pictures are after about 10 min of scrubbing with a scotchbrite pad and some wd-40, its even cleaner now after more scrubbing, this will reside down at my moms shop, she will get more use out of it more often than I will for a while, and the one who provided the birthday money that i wisely invested. Still trying to get my garage cleaned o...
When Brother David, the Patron, isn’t busy nailing his trusses to the floor of his shop and grading himself harshly on his accomplishments, he continues to think of his Friends…Yesterday, I was the recipient of another “CARE” package from the high deserts of New Mexico… In it, were these bits of Treasure… It’s Rosewood, and some of the last of his Private Stock… Thanks (again!) David for your thoughtfulness and generosity!By E-mail, he was ac...
When I started woodworking, my vision was always on the finished product.See the picture make it look like that. The more experience I get, the more I realize that every cut is a project that has to be completed correctly. For instance, when rounding edges using the router table, the correct bit must be selected, and correctly mounted in the router. The router/bit must then be installed on the collar. The collar must be properly attached to the insert. Then, the bit height must be ad...
A friend and customer of mine asked me to make her a plaque that was designed by Keith Fenton at Shelia Landry Designs. It is SLDK-317 which is the quote from Joshua 25:15. She said that the finish had to be a specific color to match her new wooden floor. I met her at a local wood store and we look at examples but she could not understand that the wood would look different when stain, oil and finish were applied. She ask me if I could use some of the pieces of the left over flooring as (she s...
I have a fresh post up on http://daves-workshop.blogspot.com/2014/03/miter-saw-dust-hood-plumbing-complete.html Quick summary though. The ducting for the miter saw dust hood is done, tied into the original system. With that part of the bench done, I have started moving hand held power tools off of the workbench, and no to the miter saw bench cubby. I spent some time reorganizing some items, and finally am able to at least give you a peek at the plywood scrap shelf on the base of the mai...
This week I did a glue up on my top piece. I added a piece of walnut and got it glued nice and tight. I drilled pocket holes on the side to make drilling into the side pieces a lot easier. I am now ready to work on the bottom shelf which will accompany an ammo box. This will take place next week.
Look at the video in this post :blueoak between 47” and 57” The nib is used to start a cut.
Have you guys put any thought into making an app for this website or for the blogs at least. Lots of blogs I’ve visited have them and with the amount of people using this one I think it would be a great idea!Chris
On Saturday, I had my last session of Introduction to Japanese Woodworking at Laney College in Oakland, CA. It’s taught by Jay Van Arsdale, an active woodworker working professionally in the Japanese style in the bay area since the 1970’s and the author of a well known book on Shoji. His class is hands down the best woodworking instruction I’ve ever had. If you’re at all interested in hand tool woodworking and are curious about Japanese tools and live somewhere in t...
