Switched DW746 to 220V

03-03-2008 12:36 AM by sIKE | 2 comments »

What a difference this makes! It took about twenty minutes to do and I am kicking myself for not doing it sooner. The saw when I turn the power switch on is at full speed almost instantly, when it is at 110V it takes a couple of seconds to get up and going. The only thing I had to purchase was the 220 plug, and 1 additional wire nut (already on hand) and your done. If you have been putting off doing this, move it up on your list you will be extremely happy!

End table set - build #13: Attaching the tops to the bases

02-10-2014 01:08 PM by Ottacat | 4 comments »

The nice thing about using tops made out of baltic birth plywood with veneered tops is that they can just be glued directly to the bases as wood movement isn’t an issue. If the tops were solid wood the top would need to be attached using some mechanism that allowed for wood movement such as floating buttons or figure 8 thingy’s. For me it was a matter of a few simple steps. The first was to take a block plan to the bases and even up all the sides. During glue-up it was inevitab...

Political Correctness: A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rapidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Alex's Coffee Table Build Off #3: The top

11-16-2014 02:46 AM by Nitreug | 0 comments »

In this entry, I’ll cover some design and the construction process for the top. This blog series is not in chronological order but for the ease of reading, I’ll cover all of the top in a single entry as opposed to covering it in a few separate entries. As I wrote in my first entry, I decided to make the top more stable without making the top too thick. I call this “the spine”. The center section of my top is made from 8/4 maple and I decided to put a half-cove on ea...
