Torque Workcentre at work.. #39: Dressing a few panels.

01-20-2011 02:05 AM by degoose | 10 comments »

Had a phone call from a bloke I met last May at the Timber and Working with Wood Show.. seems he had two panels that were glued up from some 290 mm wide stock… Problem was… stock was too thick and after glueing up into 560 mm by 560 mm panels… how do you dress this down to the right thickness.. Ah you say… I know, I know.. Pick me.. Torque Workcentre to the rescue. Secure the two panels to the table … Insert the 55 mm surfacing head.. into the rout...

Workbench #2: Workbench #2, after 2 years of use. Opinions Please?

01-19-2011 09:02 PM by Jason Brewer | 7 comments »

The construction of the top is quite simple. The top is laminated walnut with strips of mahogany in between and wrapped with brazilian cherry and african mahogany. The dovetails are only 1” thick and the 4”x4” mahogany is glued and joined with the dovetails on the sides and tenon through the top. The top is 3” thick. with 4” wide apron that is 4” thick. so the looks are 4” thick, 20”x78”. My number 1 complaint is i miss my first bench setup, this was my second workbench. My first I had...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #1: Scrollsaw Pattern Information Books

01-19-2011 08:20 PM by jerrells | 5 comments »

As I started scrollsawing a few months ago, one of the first things I looked for was available patterns. An Internet search did a fair job of returning FREE and for a price patterns. However my frustration was all of the SPAM I found. Here I am specifically talking about the sites that report free scrollsaw patterns and then tell you that you have 450 infected files on your computer and will fix them – for a fee. Seems when I searched for Fretwork is the worst tag word. Next I starte...

Woodworking and the Dunning-Kruger Effect

01-19-2011 06:48 PM by Eli | 14 comments »

Originally I had planned this blog post to be about the Dunning-Kruger effect and how it manifests itself in woodworking forums and woodworking conversations in general. (Before you continue reading, check out the above link for a quick primer on the Dunning-Kruger effect). It’s not such a stretch to connect the D-K effect and woodworking, and I found it interesting that the effect is an actual thing, not just a perceived difference between the knowledgeable and, well, everyone else. But as i...

A workshop out of the floodplane #3: A new fence for the old saw

01-19-2011 05:20 PM by withheld | 0 comments »

Based on Jamie's blog entries on upgrading a Craftsman table saw with a new delta T2 fence, I decided to do the same.The fence arrived last night I might need some better drill bits for the job and a good center punch, if I understand his blog entries, but it sounds like the thing to do is proceed very slowly and carefully. Which in my case means measure 10 times, cut once. As an aside the thing the fence is resting on is a small pegboard tool holder I started working on. Given my skill...
