09-15-2013 03:38 AM by ScottShaeffer | 0 comments »

So maybe this isn’t a butcher block glue-up in the traditional sense, but it is a very close relative with similar construction, design, and look. See how Scott has assembled butcher-block to be used to make bar stool seats! If the video doesn’t appear, CLICK HERE to watch it now!

mobile cart

11-17-2013 09:06 PM by elduque | 0 comments »

This is a work in progress, so I couldn’t post in the completed project category. But, it will be awhile, and I am eager to unveil this. This cart has the 12” compound miter saw on one end, and the router table on the other. Inside is 2’x4’ of space for all kinds of stuff, that I haven’t quite figured out how to organize yet. I screwed yhis thing together with pocket holes, just to see how strong it would be. I cut square holes for the jawhorse miter...

Harbor Freight Lathe Critique #3: Head Stock and Tail Alignment Issues

12-05-2013 11:33 PM by luv2learn | 8 comments »

The Head Stock on this particular lathe is designed to rotate at varying degrees up to 180 degrees. One of the issues fellow Lumberjock William, A.K.A greasemonkeyredneck pointed out to me was keeping the head and tail stock in alignment. This issue is due in part, or perhaps in whole, because of the ability of the head to rotate. The next two photos illustrate how much misalignment is possible on my lathe. If the hold down lever isn’t tightened down with a lot of force ...

Dirt Cheap Workbench Build #2: Apron, Legs, & stretchers.

01-27-2014 01:45 PM by 12strings | 1 comment »

Next up is the apron on the front. As I noted before, I will not be having a lower front stretcher, so this apron will need to combat racking forces. Glued on with some dowels to help with alignment and strength. Legs are through-tenoned into the top. (Mortises were left during the top-glue-up process). And here are a few pics of the half-lap dovetails joining various stretchers to the legs: The legs at this point are only about the thickness of a 2×4, but they will be dou...

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #31: What not to run through your planer!

05-17-2014 09:29 PM by Mark Shymanski | 7 comments »

I have proved tha Robertson screws are, indeed, harder than my planer blades :-( I was working on a new and improved tiller for 816 and was using up some leftover/recycled boards. The daft part is that this was the second tiller I was making today (didn’t like the first one) and had carefully made sure there were no screws in that piece, the piece that had the screw was the offcut from the first piece! You apparently have to chech EACH piece LOL! Oh well, they were old blade...
