There are 10 curved pieces needed for this crib. I needed one jig for the end assembly and another jig for the headboard assembly. I used 2 sheets of ¾ inch particle board to make these jigs. The first thing I needed to do was make patterns out of poster board. I then taped them onto ¼ inch masonite and cut them out. These templates were used to rout the first board of each size. Then the first boards were used as a template for the rest of the boards. I put the template on...
I found this tool among my Dads’ or Grandfathers’ things, I don’t know which, the handle is spring loaded and returns on its own after being pressed down, the jaws are serrated, and do not close together, there are no markings on it of any kind. does anyone have any idea what is for? it does have a wood base.here it is wide open http://i723.photobucket.com/albums/ww231/rjs923/1%20what%20could%20it%20be/allpictures104.jpg another viewhttp://i723.photobucket.com/albums/w...
Hello all, It’s been a while since I posted anything but that’s because I’ve been super busy. I just inherited a new shop and I am having a heck of a time with dust control. Basically the shop is 4 years old and has never been cleaned before I got it. Really want to smack the guy who was in there before me. I gave it a massive cleaning, fixed the dust collector, but I am still dealing with a healthy settling of dust on the floor every morning. I am getting an air f...
Hello,About a week ago I purchased this great Ridgid R4511 Tablesaw. It’s an unbelievable upgrade from my 20+ Sears 10” tablesaw. It’s all set up, and squared off. I purchased a piece of phenolic so i can make zero clearance inserts. I have searched for high density plastic faces for the rip fence, but have been unsuccessful, so i will order a piece of high density polyethylene from usplastic.com. One problem I’d like to resolve is the vibration during speed down of th...
Has anyone ever made or seen a counter top made like an end grain cutting board. I am thinking of trying it. Counter top would be 34 square feet minus the built in cook top and sink. it will be about 4500 square inchs. i would like to make it in a herring bone pattern with 1 1/2×4 pieces. What glue would i have to use? It would be in oak, cherry, some walnut and maple. I figure it to be 1” thick set on 3/4 inch plywood. Any ideas from you guys would help. Or should...
This is my first attempt at embedding photos from PhotoBucket so hopefully, this will work. My youngest son (my 15 year old) is a bit of a budding artist. He is quite talented as a sketch artist and is branching out into painting. He also enjoys tinkering in the woodshop and is showing some talent there as well. He needed a means of containing and organizing his art supplies. My wife found a wooden box that, in another life, was probably a wooden brief case. The outside of the box was...
Well, I finally finished the display cabinet last week and I was thinking about moving some stuff around in my shop. That’s when my son asked me about teaching him about woodworking. I tell you, there is nothing like the feeling of your son or daughter wanting to build something with you. That just made my year. So I happily postponed my redesigning my shop for this!He decided that he wanted a little stand for along side his bed. Something he can put his phone and an alarm clock on...
Well folks the first project for Upper Cut Woodworks is done and delivered. This marks the end of the blog series “Starting Upper Cut Woodworks.” The latest post with pictures of the final project are on my blog, here.
Well I finished this last week and delivered it to my son in-law…he loved it! He will be using it to display his hot wheels collection, and needless to say, he already went out and bought more hot wheels! He hasn’t put it up yet becuase they are getting ready to redo the room he will be hanging it in. I’ll post the pics of it hung up and loaded with his hot wheels when it’s all said and done.
I went to a guy in Powell, OH about a router and table for $75 total I seen on craigslist. While I was there he also had unopened and unused belt/disc sander and scroll saw. He was asking $200 for all 4 items but settled on $150. I got a Craftsman Router 17504 1-1/2hp, Craftsman Router Table 25483, Delta 1” Belt/8” Disc Sander and Delta 16” Variable Speed Scroll Saw. Works out to roughly $38 per item. Not bad I think even though they are somewhat older items, but ne...
