Ripping Problem and Solutions #1: Ripping problems: reasons and solutions

04-29-2013 03:13 AM by Ted Williams and Brian Kelly | 4 comments »

Binding while ripping and Riving Knife Drag We have read any number of posts on this and other sites about problems encountered when ripping lumber and the search for solutions. The most probable cause is case hardening of the lumber. Red Oak is often steam dried. Rushing the drying cycle, and/or having insufficient ventilation between materials in the kiln, among other reasons, can cause tension in the lumber. European Beech, Cherry and Black Walnut are other species that are often ste...

Well it’s been a week and the paint, as they say where I come from, is well ‘ard. Hard enough to complete the job. First thing is that whilst the sliding carriage will fit into the main casting the jaws won’t fully close up Traced this problem to burrs on the sliding carriage, both sides, here shown cleaned up (with a file) It now slides all the way home Next to install the threaded end stop Whilst the thread for the stop, in the base of the c...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #8: Day 2 went well!

02-11-2011 06:37 AM by Mark Shymanski | 2 comments »

Hello Again, Well after a rough day at work I was really looking forward to today’s course…then I had to go back to work! But its okay I still made it to class early! I’m 2 for 2! Today Ryan demonstrated the bandsaw, disk and spindle sanders. Pretty cool, a huge bandsaw. I will have to measure it’s resaw capacity as it looked about 12 or 13 inches but very deep from the blade to the arm and a huge table. After the demo’s we picked our projects and began ...

The shed of my dreams #2: Shedless for another year...

09-26-2012 11:05 PM by Sandra | 6 comments »

For the past four weeks, we’ve had renovations going on in our basement. I’m pleased with the progress, and the contractor has been fantastic. Nevertheless, the chaos in the house has been a bit tiring. I can’t find my garage floor, not that it was neat in the first place. The stuff from the basement is in the garage, and the dining room. The stuff the contractors are using is in the garage…... And since I picked up some rough hardwood planks last night, I now...

Constructing "Old 99" #16: Trimmin' the wheels

09-08-2008 12:37 PM by MrWoody | 4 comments »

This morning I cut and drilled the wheel trim pieces. Looking at the 3/8” square cuts I thought that I would try not using the scroll saw. So I dug out my 3/8” hollow mortising chisel and took the auger out. Using a soft blow mallet I tried chopping out the squares. It didn’t work. There was a lot of tear out on the back side. Four more photocopies, more drilling and on to the scroll saw. I used diagonal cutters to shorten the 5/32” axle pins to a little over 1/8”. ...

The Craftsman's Path #47: THree Pillars of Design - Part 2 Construction

10-09-2008 03:19 AM by Mark Mazzo | 0 comments »

Building on the previous post in this series, it’s time to explore Graham Blackburn’s second pillar of design: Construction. When one thinks of construction in woodworking, the first thought is inevitably joinery. While joinery is definitely one element of the construction of a piece of furniture, as you might expect, there’s more to the equation. Take a look at this post for a discussion of construction as it relates to design, according the Blackburn. Thanks for reading.

Window shelving #3: So far not so good

01-26-2010 09:55 PM by Rustic | 7 comments »

Here is what I have so far on the window shelving. Had to stop to get TS fixed. The switch went out on it. The pics are of 6ft 1×6 select pine and 1/2 inch pine from Johnson’s workebench.I was able to set up and test fit the dados. I will have my TS back by next tuesday. So this is what I have done. The only thing I have not taken a pic of yet is the actual dados that I have already cut. Hope this helps. BTW I am going through withdrawls without the TS.
