First Resaw

02-13-2011 06:22 AM by TMcG | 2 comments »

So today was the day to modify the fence on the bandsaw, I have the Ridgid 14002, and install the new Woodslicer blade and see how we do on the re-saw. As it turned out I had 3 blanks, Yellowheart, Cocobolo and Maple that needed to be thinned down to 3/4 from 1” and didn’t really want to waste that much of that much exotic so….. Unbelievable ! That Woodslicer blade is just unreal, I really just didn’t expect that much of a difference but it is just a world apart...

Grandma's Picture Frame #3: Zero Clearance Take 2: Using a Molding Head on the Table Saw, Safety and Other Thoughts

02-13-2011 05:28 AM by spunwood | 1 comment »

In the last blog entry, the table saw molding cutter fiasco was discussed. After some feedback, and encouragement, and trust that the mishap was partly due to a knot in the wood (WHO PUT THAT THERE!), I went back and reworked the Insert. This time I made it slower, neater, and let the cutter itself remove the kerf by very, VERY slowly raising it while the fence held it down. If you do this, please use a cutter that has both outside edges; otherwise, you may not have created a universal slot f...

Traffic Light Project #4: Assembly test (video)

02-13-2011 04:58 AM by souichiro | 1 comment »

Well, today was a great day for this project :) I was able to get the lenses and hoods mounted, and the entire circuit mounted on a temporary base for testing. It all works! One change is that I will make the base “box” as a light controller only for now. I am afraid that I won’t be able to complete it by his birthday (a week away from delivery). So what I plan on doing is making a box for the base that has the light control circuit in it. And then I can make a ̶...

02-13-2011 02:44 AM by JL7 | 9 comments »

Today was a good day for progress…...I have a semi-homemade low budget drum sander setup in the basement shop but the dust collection sucked…..or more correctly, didn’t suck….. You can see the original setup in these 2 earlier posts: onetwo Out with the old – in with the new: The new version has a 4” dust port hooked up to the dust collector – I still need to do some plumbing in the ceiling to reduce the amount of flex hose, but that&#...

Making an ancient bucket MaFe #8: Planing the outside, shaping the mandle and start of the lid.

02-13-2011 12:42 AM by mafe | 12 comments »

Planning the outside, shaping the handle and start of the lid.First day back home. So Mike, I’m back!. Spend a little shop time today, not a lot, but a good beginning. So first staf rounded on the outside, and from here I take a pen and draw the thickness I want from the curved inside and out. I used a compass as marking gauge, since I had no rounded gauge. First side done, a few stafs needs angel adjustment after. This is my rounding setup. And now all the way around....

Community rule to end woodworking? #2: Something more to think about...

02-12-2011 10:15 PM by SergioC | 10 comments »

So I hadn’t really planned on updating so soon, but I’ve got to based on some of the responses. First, I fished out my HOA rules. Here is the actual language: “Garage doors shall be kept closed except when automobiles are entering or leaving the garage. All vehicles shall be kept inside garages, except that vehicles may be parked on the driveway, but only if the Owner’s garage or garages are fully occupied with the owner’s vehicles.” First, for those tha...

Ancient Bucket Master Class with Stefang #2: Plane body glue up

02-12-2011 09:44 PM by daltxguy | 10 comments »

Some more progress on my plane, which will be used to curve the inside of the staves to form a bucket. I am following stefang's master class on making a bucket using traditional methods I left off here last time Next to make was the crosspin. I chose to make a wooden pin. I don’t have any plug cutters so I did this on my rusty lathe ( forced to sit outside but under cover for space reasons). I sized the middle part to fit inside the plane less 1/16” so it wouldn’t ...

Woodworking Accessories Alternatives #6: Making a First Aid Kit

02-12-2011 09:19 PM by steliart | 7 comments »

Making a First Aid Kit All of us understand the need of a first aid kit in the workshop, so there is no reason to emphasize its importance here. But do we know what this kit should contain, or what would be needed in an unfortunate scenario. Here are some nice guidelines I found for those who have a first aid kit and those who need to make one for their woodshop. You can make a first aid kit in many ways. You can use any sealed container such as a tool box, a small tool plastic case...
