Tablesaw dust collection

08-28-2009 12:33 AM by kosta | 9 comments »

Yo whats up everybody so I got my skil tablesaw yesterday and it took about 3 hours to set it up and I filmed the whole thing so part 1 of that series will be out next week. I made a few cuts with the saw and it is a nice saw the only problem is there is sooooooooo much dust that goes everywhere and I didnt realize this when I got it but the entire bottom of the saw is open so what I will probably do is take the saw off the stand mount it to a piece of plywood and put a dust port on that. The...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #727: One Step at a Time

06-09-2012 11:04 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

As I reread my post of yesterday this morning when responding to comments, I decided that perhaps I should try to take some of my own advice. It is funny to me how it can be easier to advise others sometimes while not adhering to that same advice for yourself. It reminds me of that old ‘can’t see the forest through the trees’ saying that we are all familiar with. Sometimes we are just too close to things to make a good decision. Things have been busy lately. That is...

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...

Table Saw Crosscut Sled

02-15-2018 03:51 AM by wrenchhead | 5 comments »

This is a must have in my shop. This essential table saw accessory will allow me to make accurate repeatable cuts on narrow work pieces and panels. I built a general use sled, fit the runners and square up the fence using the 5 cut method. I learned this method from watching the Wood Whisperer and William Ng build their crosscut sleds. Check out their videos for a more detailed explanation of the fence squaring process. Thanks for watching!

Getting my vises cleaned up. #1: The small vise.

08-12-2010 01:47 AM by AnnaEA | 5 comments »

This is my small vise. It’s about 50 years old, and was hand made by the original owner from scrap metal. His son later sold it to my father in law, who replaced the center screw and re-welded the whole thing. All this work, my FIL tells me, both his repairs and the original fabrication, was done over lunch hours at the steel mill. I’ve given it a good spray with WD-40, and gone at it with #3 steel wool. I got some of the paint off, and some of the rust, but ...

Solar Kiln

06-12-2017 07:52 PM by highlander33 | 2 comments »

I Built this Solar Kiln about 6-9 months ago, and just used it with the Sun for Heat as shown by the last few pictures and it worked fairly well until an Engineer friend of mine suggested that I hook up a Solar Panel for heating Water that I had laying around , I came across 4 of them from a job I did a couple of years ago and didn’t really have a use for them and couldn’t just throw them away . So he came up with this simple way to heat the Solar Kiln with a used Radiator I pick...
