Atlantes Shelf Support

01-13-2011 12:07 PM by Amcarver | 4 comments »

I’ve had an old heavy barn beam, for some time now, and have wanted to fabricate a couple ornamental carved brackets to hold it up. Here is the start of the first bracket. It is modeled after an Atlantes which is an architectural adornment.

New Yankee Blanket Chest #6: Back to work

01-13-2011 07:11 AM by HungryTermite | 2 comments »

My resolution this new year was to finally finish this project so here we go… After getting my new planer I finally finished planing down the final two panels and glued up the 4th side. I figured this was a good time to sand the inside so I used a random orbit sander to sand the inside to 150 grit. Then it was time to glue the 4 sides together! The diagonal clamp is to pull everything into square. Next step will be to cut the shape of the feet and start adding the b...

unconventional dyes

01-13-2011 07:08 AM by coolhand | 2 comments »

So, I have been carving some spoons out of maple for some christmas gifts and I started finding some really incredible figure in the maple I was using. So I decided to try out a trick that guitar makers use to pop the grain—the two stage dye job! The idea is to dye the wood with a dark base color, sand it back so that the dark color only stays in the figured grain, then dye again with the lighter color. Add a glossy top coat and you have the deepest looking figure around. So since...

A much needed fold down outfeed table in the making.

01-13-2011 06:27 AM by tedth66 | 5 comments »

I’ve been sick of using the 12” wide outfeed roller stand for over a year now. I’m finally making a fold down outfeed table that’ll only add about an inch to the saw cabinet when the table is folded down. I had to take a different approach and make a frame attached to my cabinet and the cast iron wing. After attaching the support arms I added a couple of angle iron pieces to the inside to prevent flex in the wings and then added the maple back and a poplar strip...

Jet JJ-6CSX #1: What do I have to work with?

01-13-2011 12:31 AM by twoblacklabs | 11 comments »

I have just acquired an older Jet JJ-6CSX. Is it a Craigslist Gloat? Well that is yet to be determined. However I am quite certain that the description of “Almost New” in the ad wasn’t exactly accurate. But after several weeks of searching and a few days of haggling, I found myself driving 150 miles to trade a shotgun for a jointer. And after 150 miles, I wasn’t eager to return home empty handed. So I took the chance. What I ended up with was indeed a JJ-6CSX. howev...

Huck is Back!!!!!

01-12-2011 09:44 PM by Huckleberry | 9 comments »

So I have been hit with a lot of emails asking where we’ve been. We took a break and re-focused our material. We had some good things and some bad things on our show. So we hope to get rid of the bad (lighting, poor audio, better clarity ect…) and enhance the good. We have out fitted ourselves with nicer camera equipment and tools, of which we will be airing some buying tips as we wanted to keep it like the average “Joe” shop. So here are some pictures of the upgr...

DragonFly Harp #6: 1/12/2011

01-12-2011 09:24 PM by Donna Menke | 10 comments »

Doesn’t seem like 6 days have passed, but the calendar does not lie. I have a lot to catch up with.First order of the day was to edge join the pieces I would need to have wider- like for parts of the stand legs and the base of the harp.These Bessey clamps are the best.Then I needed to cut the angled sides. This was the most dreaded job, and the first rip (with the grain) on the table saw (my second least-favorite power tool). Took most of a morning to assemble the tool and then to figur...
