Sorry to say, not due to wood working projects… Work has me jumpin building new automation, test equipment and I’m pushing to use Fanuc robotics more than we usually do. Never mind that, my topic and question:Has anyone here used the Laguna Swift CNC router and 3D design/G-code software? I’m thinking about a purchase and would like opinions. Thanks Magdaddy

Powermatic 45 Lathe #2: Paint almost comeplete

03-11-2011 06:39 PM by stevengaletodd | 7 comments »

This is where I’m at today! I’ve pretty much taken everything apart so I could paint. I did forget to mention that this lathe has the step pulley, not the variable speed (wish it was VS). I had some trouble taking the tool rest apart, the support clamp bolt was rusted to the shaft. Finally after a lot of WD40 and a use of a small sledge, I got it freed up. It was missing the original plate on the underneath side of the tool rest. Going to have to see if I can find one. The h...

3 Girls & A Woodworker #3: Project Budgets - Is it about your wallet or your location

03-24-2011 05:11 PM by John_G | 17 comments »

I’ve been a LJ now for awhile, and even before i joined i was constantly on the site looking at projects. There were always things that i admired about every project, beginner or advanced. – quality of work, even the beginner has areas of great skill – the creativity of the projects, especialy art boxes, simply mazing – the different species of wood being used As i get into woodworking more and more and want to experiment with different species i began noticing th...

A journey into the workshop. #103: An unplanned fathers day gift for my father in law, starting my shop reorganization.

06-20-2016 03:32 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

Okay the shop reorganization is NOT the gift for my father in law, but bear with me, this is kind of interesting… My father in law due to age, and the condition of his house, has been needing to be moved into somewhere that the extended family can more easily get to, and give him the assistance he needs in his everyday living. He’s 85 with somewhat limited mobility, and a failing memory. He simply can’t be trusted with a stove or oven any more, so we are always taking him...

Dovetailed Hand Tool Cabinet #2: One man's trash - making the cabinet back from scraps

05-02-2011 09:35 PM by JasonD | 2 comments »

When I first started working on my Roubo workbench, I was given the advice to buy 2×12 lumber, rip the sides off to use to laminate the top, and then toss the pith section from the middle into the scrap bin. Needless to say, I ended up with a lot of pith scrap. The idea as I understood it is that the pith section is the least stable and to have it used in the bench top (or other critical parts of the bench) could lead the problems later. Pith scrap end grain: I did use some of ...

My Introduction to Hand Planes #2: Collection is growing already

06-27-2016 05:25 PM by GrumpyCub | 5 comments »

I picked up a few more planes since I got the #5 for my birthday. A friend gave me the the wooden plane on top. I believe it is long enough to be considered a jointer. It is stamped New York Tool on the toe end. He also gave me another # 5. This one is the type 19, second from the right. Also pictured are three #4’s. From left to right they are: 1. A Miller’s Falls parts plane. The side of the plane was broken, but the guy at the antique store threw it in with the oth...
