Extremely Average #113: Is it A Good Deal?

04-25-2010 03:36 AM by Ecocandle | 11 comments »

I awoke this morning and ate a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich. As I sat and ate, nom nom nom, I thought about the rest of the day. This day was a ‘blank sheet’ and I had some ‘writer’s block’. I intended to work on my jig a bit, so I made a mental note on the blank page in my mind. As I stared at the sole objective it occurred to me that I needed another set of Rockler cam clamps, or as I like to call them, clampy thingies. A trip to ACME was added to ...

random #24: list of favorite woodworkers

08-12-2009 08:20 AM by Gary Fixler | 1 comment »

While searching up something else on the Google last night, I stumbled upon an exactly 900 day old post on our very own LJs site in which user ToolCrib asked the question Who are YOUR top five most influential woodworkers?. ToolCrib (Garrett) then went on to compile that list to his own site here. I thought I’d repost that effort on the 900th day as a little look back at who everyone thought was inspirational a few years ago, but then I fell asleep early, so here it is, 901 days later :)

CNC Chevalet #4: Gluefest, a.k.a. Never Enough Clamps

03-14-2013 07:28 PM by zombolina | 6 comments »

Progress has been made on the glue-ups. I ended up going back and drilling 3/8” holes for dowels in order to keep the pieces aligned for gluing. I have to world’s tiniest drill press, so some of the thicker pieces have to be drilled out in a few layers at a time! But it seems to be working out so far. Should be finished with the last pieces today, then on bench assembly and making the solid wood parts. Going for the record of number of different kinds clamps used. :-) ...

Hints and Tips #10: Template Sawing on the Table Saw

09-03-2015 05:50 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

If you remember my Tip #7, I showed how I jointed one edge of a board by taping a straight edge to a board and running it along the fence of a table saw. Well, sometimes I think I’m just stupid! There’s an easier way to do this and I already had the jig for it made. My wife asked me for a piece of wood to shore up one side of an electronic keyboard at her school. I had a piece in mind, but wanted to square it up and paint it black. After I did all of this, using the method des...

My lathe journeys. #29: .. First thing I turned with the new lathe.

05-16-2015 09:53 PM by JoeinGa | 11 comments »

New lathe, all set up and ready to go and I realize I dont have any blanks glued up to turn bowls … CRAP ! Looking around the shop to see what I can try out I spy a branch of walnut someone gave me last year. It’s been in his shop for a coupe years and is good to go. I still have some of that 5/8” aluminum bar stock that I used to make carbide tools with, so why not make another and this can be a handle? So I cut off about 11” and put it between the centers. ...It was...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1038: My Happy Place

05-20-2013 10:39 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

All in all I think I had a pretty good weekend. Lately it seems that I have been scrambled in so many directions that it is sometimes hard to feel like I am accomplishing as much as I should. I have been working on several projects simultaneously, Because of that, it has once again felt as if I was progressing at a snails’ pace. I try not to worry about these feelings that I have had. I should know by now that if I am patient, I will see everything gel and in the end I will have s...

Yesterday and today I got the little front fence installed, the push handle-blade bury block assembly constructed and installed, and the fence calibrated. I am now ready to use it to make my quick and dirty temporary router table modifications, and then make the miter arms. Need the router table fixed to do that. First a couple of pictures, to make the explanation easier…....... ..........sled from the back…...... ........sled from the front, the operating position...
