Safey Checkup for the New Year

02-05-2010 06:27 AM by KnotWright | 9 comments »

So today I’m browsing around here on Lumberjocks, checking out the projects, the blogs, and the workshops. I always play a little game when I’m checking out the workshops, “where in the world is the extinguisher” sorta like that “Where’s Waldo” I give bonus points when I spot em. I also am on the look out for those “hidden” and not so hidden “GOTCHA’s” you know those things we know we shouldn’t do, but hec...

Stanley #26: the rebuild,part 2

12-11-2014 02:44 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Rest of the plane is now done. Now comes the rear handle. Last seen, it had a pair of extra brass screws in it’s top, and a crack near the bottom Tried to glue the larger crack back together with a Locktite CA glue. Didn’t look like it should. The top was missing a “horn” and had two screws holding what was left. Rumaged around in the “Spares” box. The box where the frog’s yokes were found. A handle was in there about the same si...

Reclaiming Antique Oak

03-06-2010 03:27 PM by chrisstef | 6 comments »

So as a demolition contractor (the job that pays the mortgage) and a wood working hobbyist (the job that keeps me sane) i have been privliged enough to get my hands on some great lumber. My most recent score is some antique red / black oak dating back to the late 1800’s from what i could gather. I took home my first piece to be denailed, a monster 5/4×18” x 32”. Unfortunately it had quite a crook down the middle and i had to sacrifice it and rip the crook out of it l...

Outdoor Morris Chair #13: Please be gentle - it's my first time (with the router)

05-05-2011 02:19 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 3 comments »

Did my first router cuts ever. Really want to show the kid that I can do something when he’s not here – even if it’s only marginally true. Cut the notches for the front slat boards and routed all by myself. I’m a big boy now. Here’s a couple of pictures: !

Extremely Average #183: Which is Better?

07-04-2010 04:11 AM by Ecocandle | 10 comments »

Hello All, There was a recent debate on Twitter, among woodworkers, about which was better. The Festool Track plunge saw and table system vs. the Saw Stop table saw. After much discussion about which I should consider for my next purchase, someone said neither. I gasped. They suggested a bandsaw. This changed the direction of the conversation considerably. I had not been even thinking of getting a bandsaw. Tonight I did some investigating of my own and even went to ACME tools to t...

I have updated the video I linked yesterday to allow you guys to see what I am up to. This gives you a MUCH better idea of what I used, how and why. Please don’t be like me with this. Drain your tanks and keep an idle compressed air system depressurized! View on YouTube

The Delta Unifence

09-05-2015 02:40 PM by trophyjoe | 3 comments »

I hate my unifence. I added the Uni-T-Fence from ttrackusa and it’s a decent upgrade. But the back side is still messy, not at all like the Biesemeyer. Anyone using the Unifence knows what I mean. Tripped over this from Been bouncing this same design between my ears for months but never executed. mistuhd: You get the glory. Now that you’ve done all the heavy lifting, I can build mine, ...
