Anyone having the same problem with **&@@! Jet?

04-10-2014 02:39 PM by eldercop | 10 comments »

Lost the arbor nut on my JWTS10 table saw but had no idea it might require a new saw to replace it. Ordered the replacement nut from Jet, according to part number and diagram, waited the week plus, it arrives and doesn’t fit. I came a little unglued, being work stoppage on a much wanted project. Customer service transfers me to tech support where the conversation goes like this: Me The arbor nut you sent doesn’t fit. Tech Suport Guy I’m not surprised. M Huh? TSG Yup. W...

Here is great show. Historians study the Egyptian chariot and then build it just like the original. Some pretty amazing ancient woodworking. It’s about an hour long and is free online. Enjoy!

This is what it's all about

04-12-2010 07:39 PM by Heath | 16 comments »

When I gave the first bandaw box that I made to my wife, my little girl (she’ll be 4 in July) specifically requested a heart shaped box. That became a ”red heart shaped box.” She hasn’t stopped asking me about her “red heart shaped box” since. I finally got to make it for her yesterday and gave it to her right after her bath. I’ve had projects I was proud of before. But nothing like this. And the pride didn’t come my craftsmanship on the ...

Random Musings #1: Just finished having a "think."

07-27-2011 01:29 PM by SSMDad | 5 comments »

While I was just reading a review of a book here I started thinking about the nostalgia and admiration so many of us have for how wood was working in the ”old days.” I’ve seen a lot of comparison and puffed chests amongst the hand tool, power tool, and hybrid tool camps (to which I fall under since I like to use both). It seems to me that the best practice (can’t get away from IT terminology) is to use whatever type of tool does the job best. Sometimes it’s a...

The Secret Birthday Present #1: JENN DON"T LOOK

06-19-2007 09:38 PM by MsDebbieP | 14 comments »

My daughter’s birthday is fast approaching and I have had several ideas in the past month of what to make for her. I have gone from simple, to complicated, and now .. it’s somewhere in the middle. Actually, since it will be a variation of the Challenge Table, it really should fall into the easy category but I’m not that naive or confident to think that I will whip this together with a frustration and challenge or two. The first difficulty was deciding what to make it o...

Good Therapy

09-24-2011 07:39 PM by NoLongerHere | 9 comments »

The first day back from a too short vacation is always a tough one. . Vanity in production – laying on it’s back. What is wrong with this picture? So much to catch up on and no desire to start anything big. Not the first day anyway. After all, there are materials to pick up, jobs to check up on, paperwork to shuffle through and 2 golden retrievers that haven’t seen me, like… forever. With a second cup of coffee in hand I started working in the office listening ...

Need Your help :( :)

Last night was a bittersweet time for me as I have lost my job. I have kinda neglected here in light of my injury and the politics of trying to get my hernia fixed. While this was going on our company in February lost the contract and the new contractor was picking up some of us. due to the circumstances with my former employer the new company could not accept me at the time and last night would be my last night I was told this at 10:45pm just before last break. Now I am trying to focus on my...

Joining round stock

12-25-2012 08:15 PM by oledo | 12 comments »

I’m building a Cracker Barrel rocker however my lathe wasn’t long enough to turn the back legs in one piece. My idea was to turn two pieces and use a 3/4 dowel and glue the two together. If I had been smart enough I would have turned a tenon on one piece rather than have to drill two. When I got to the joining part I found my drill press had too much play to drill an accurate hole. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can join these two pieces short of overhauling the drill press?

Weekend Bench #7: A bit of reflection

01-05-2009 07:11 PM by dsb1829 | 8 comments »

Okay, I am nearing completion on the bench. I am currently working on the front vise. I will save that story for the finished product. I am sitting here today having a bit of a reflective view of the project. So I am going to break it down here. Costs:$100 – about 100BF of rough 8/4 poplar (I will likely only have gone through about 40BF during this build$81 – 3 sheets of 3/4in MDF (still have over half a sheet, I could have used some of the poplar for the lower shelf ...
