Ridgid TS3650 #4: Assembled It

07-15-2010 02:44 PM by Carreiro | 1 comment »

Well, it’s finally assembled. It didn’t take quite as long as six hours like some forums were claiming. Aligning the blade to the mitre slot was not difficult at all, especially with the use of callipers. Setting the blade perpendicular to the table was a cinch as well with my digital angle gauge from Mastercraft. The Accufence took a couple of days to get here, but it to was simple enough to put on and tune.I didn’t have too much to complain about during the assembly process. As long as you ...

I built a large hardware storage cabinet to house an assortment of fine thread bolts.My friend builds custom cars in his shop.In order to secure these expensive nuts, bolts and washers, he hired me to build a cabinet to lock them up when he isn’t around. The assortment came with a large blue rack with a lot of bins for all the different fasteners.This rack is made in three parts that will slide right into my cabinet.If you’ve followed my blog, I built the Table saw island for the ...

Dining Room Set Refurbish #2: Interesting challenges from past "fixes" to the chair

11-06-2010 07:23 PM by mtkate | 3 comments »

It’s amazing how many problems can result when someone tries to fix something fast. And all this is on just one chair!!! . . . . .On the last image – not only was an extra screw hole added but the screw was put in straight onto the rail and whoever did it pierced the wood a bit on the other side as the screw was simply too long (AND too thick). I guess the most difficult part will be filling in the sections of oak that broke off. Over the last couple ...

WHY?

11-17-2010 09:51 AM by Bearpie | 33 comments »

This has nothing to do with woodworking except maybe as a means of hauling my wood! My truck was stolen from our driveway this morning in broad daylight. My wife went shopping with her 97 year old mother, they went to Wal Mart then to a grocery store and upon arriving home my wife mentioned that I must have gone shopping cause the truck was not in the driveway. Upon entering the house she noticed that the shop was lit up and she could see me working in there. I called 911 and they showed up ...

Top Secret....Rocker for my Wife #2: BUSTED!!!

11-29-2010 01:40 AM by bues0022 | 6 comments »

So much for trying to keep this top secret! My wife checked my email account from my phone last night when we were driving back from Thanksgiving. She was a bit curious about what this Top Secret project was all about. I tried minimizing the damage by admitting that: “I was thinking of building one, but said that I don’t have nearly the ability to make it. The thread was just feeling it out, and it bombed on me.” She seemed to buy the excuse for now. And to make sure this do...

Beginning Woodworker Just Starting Out #8: Belated X-mas tools

12-27-2010 05:45 AM by Jimi_C | 3 comments »

Got home a little while ago with gifts from my in-laws – Christmas was belated this year as my wife is a nurse and had to work last night, so we went over to her parents house tonight. The tools I’m really excited about are the two new Lee Valley/Veritas plane blades I got. The #8 I bought had a blade that was extremely pitted and pretty much un-salvageable, so I put a 2 5/8” A2 blade on my list alone with a 2” for the cheapo #4 I have (on the premise that I’ll...
