Ridgid TS3650 Router Table Extension #2: Good Progress, Almost Done

09-20-2015 08:32 PM by jonah | 1 comment »

I had a bit of time at the end of this week to finish up most of the router table extension I’m building for my Ridgid TS3650. I got the lip routed out for the lift to sit on, though that ended up being relatively annoying to get precise. I used the edge guide on my plunge router, but I tend to have a hard time holding the thing completely steady and flat when I use the edge guide. There are a few spots where I went past the line because I tipped the router by accident. I’m honest...

How can I buy a New Cabinet Saw for only $20? #8: JUST AN QUICK UPDATE...

02-07-2012 04:29 AM by Chickenfoot | 0 comments »

Just a quick update, I made $500 on the band saw and $450 on the planes so far with a couple still left to sell. I also traded a couple planes for a 20” Scroll Saw… I’ll talk more about that one later. My Daughters 21ST birthday party is this weekend so I’m sure I wont be going to the Rose Bowl on Sunday. So far I have $950 in the pot. Keeping my eye on the big picture…

Closing The Flat Top Box

03-12-2015 11:09 PM by Texcaster | 3 comments »

Another use for laminated linings, drying racks. I like a laminated lining, a very strong component at a critical junction. However, guitars have been made, with great success, for a long time now with kerfed linings Once the top went on I couldn’t help but think of the guitar as a big chocolate cake. The neck is Mahogany and Silver Ash. ( not an ash at all but very strong and hard ) If you are making one neck block, might as well make four. The shoulders on the neck...

Making Mouldings #2: The mouldings fitted up.

03-28-2013 02:16 AM by robscastle | 0 comments »

A couple of LJs asked about the moulding I made for a boat fit out and if the customer was happy. The answer was yes they were, and I had the opportunity to see the actual boat as well.Its a Millcraft Bay cruiser with a huon pine hull. The fit out is being done in Tassie Oak and is progressing well. Here is the sink/galley where the timber is used. The pictures are a little dark but that’s all I have.I was impressed with the carpenters ability to fit it and maintain the clos...

My first simple box #2: Mitering and the BIG question.

07-30-2010 01:49 AM by Benighted | 7 comments »

Were moving along here, this time I’ll be mitering, and this will be done with a jig on the shooting board. Like this: Two edges mitered… Outside of mitered joint, not perfectly aligned in this dry fit test. inside of joint: Now to the BIG Question… Which wood do you think I should use for the top and bottom… the choices are: Maple: Cocobolo: Purpleheart: Wenge: I also have some bubinga, but it’s a little bit to thin for the look ...

An Unexpected Break from Woodworking

03-14-2013 01:31 PM by Chris Mobley | 7 comments »

I had an unusual experience yesterday that is leading me to take an unexpected break from woodworking. Now, I only expect this break to last a few days, so no need to worry. The strangest things seem to happen to me, and my immediate family for that matter, that I could not resist telling the story. Yesterday, I took my manual transmission work truck to get its state inspection done. Since I don’t drive it very often, I had been neglecting to get it done for quite some time. I took it to a...

Lego Table #7: Good progress

11-22-2015 07:58 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

This post contains a lot of images—I’ve posted some here, but for the rest, please visit my woodworking blog) Very productive nap time session today! First order of business was to take advantage of the 65 degree weather and paint the play surface for the top. We chose a primary blue to cover the MDF. The kids have plenty of the green Lego baseplate’s, so blue should compliment what they already have. The MDF took the paint in three thin coats that ate the entire can. Th...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #860: Weathering the Storm

10-30-2012 10:06 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

We made it through the day and night with little incident. It appears that the storm took a turn inland earlier than anticipated and we are out of harms’ way. Besides some rain and a couple of gusts of wind, we did fine. I am grateful for that, but in reading of all the devastation that came in the path of hurricane Sandy, it is difficult to feel a great deal of joy. Seeing what people are going through is terribly painful, and I feel very deeply for those who have had loss. I s...
