Shaker Night Stand #3: A tree grows up in my basement

12-19-2009 07:27 PM by NBeener | 13 comments »

Houston? We have wood. 2×11 x 72 – this is the bad boy that gets a quiet evening with the planer, jointer, and table saw: A sheet of 1/4” and a sheet of 3/4” African Mahogany ply (with either a chewy nougat center or an MDF center. Not sure which….): I passed my boards! Up close and personal…. It’s a good thing they’re not supposed to look alike! ... it IS all Mahogany …. right? Anyway … ...

First steps

12-19-2009 02:28 PM by David Craig | 4 comments »

I started working with wood a couple years ago. My job gets pretty demanding and I haven’t had much time in the shop since my initial beginnings. My wood hoard mostly consists of boards from things I have taken down and apart since I purchased my home. I have never been much for throwing items away. I bought a planer a couple months ago so will start making some trips to a sawmill in Chesaning for some better wood for projects. In the interim, I am getting back to some woodworking promi...

Kitchen Cabinet Job #1: Carcases

12-19-2009 08:30 AM by jackd942 | 7 comments »

I’ve actually made two posts over at my website on this job, but I think I’ll just consolidate those first two into this single post here. I was asked by my family to make my grandmother a set of cabinets for the newly constructed addition to my aunt’s house that she would be moving into. In talking to them, we decided to use prefinished plywood for the carcases and drawers with oak ply skins and frame/flat panel doors. After finishing up with my regul...

What is it? #3: Yup, you guessed it.

12-19-2009 08:12 AM by newTim | 5 comments »

A sketchup model. True enough. A wooden wrench? Nope. Cord wrap? Nope. A widget? Perhaps. Dohicky? Same. Push blocks? Why not. Garren20, Art Stands? Yup. RJ, stands for cutting boards? I didn’t think about it, but yeah, they’ll work good for that. I was trying to come up with a design that could accomodate picture frames (or cutting boards) with different thicknesses. All you have to do with these is flip them upside down. Might be another way to make goo...

First Turnings

12-19-2009 06:57 AM by johngoes | 10 comments »

I started turning projects Tuesday on my Jet 1220 lathe. The following are photos of 4 of 5 almost completed projects. I need to finish all of them. I’ve put tung oil on the walnut pieces but they’re not shining like I want so I need to research how to get a shine on top of a tung oil finish. I turned a honey dipper first – no picture. It’s ok but boring. Next I turned the awl followed by the bottle stopper (followed by another that blew off the lathe due to a ca...

Tips and Jigs for the Shop #7: Revised sled.......Soooper Sled Design

12-19-2009 05:49 AM by Jim Bertelson | 14 comments »

After patron, Timbo, stefang, Scott, and NBeener goaded me on, and dbHost had more ideas, I decided I had to do the SoooperSled. So I ordered the stuff from Rockler, and now it is here. So I made a design. Still not sure whether to use plywood or MDF for the base, the plywood up here is kinda marginal. Can use it for the fences, glue up a couple of layers and make sure it is straight, but don’t know for the base yet. Got a message into Timbo re that. So assuming I use plywood I have...

Making a Game for $5.00 #2: Starting to Take Shape

12-19-2009 04:07 AM by Deela40 | 3 comments »

Last night I was able to get the box all ready to put together. I cut the sides and the base each at a 45-degree angle. I also cut the sides at 45-degrees on the ends where they fit together. I am kicking myself for cutting the base and the sides like that as I think it is going to be hard to glue together. Are there any techniques to make it easier? After I got all the pieces cut, I sanded everything down. Here is what the box will look like when put together. I also sto...

Jet Table Saw #1: Blade out of alignment on Jet JWTS-10JF 10" contractor saw

12-19-2009 03:29 AM by Jim Jakosh | 10 comments »

I stopped at a fellow LJ and she had a 10 Jet table saw with the blade out of alignment with the fence and table slots by 1/8”. The tilt mechanism went about 15 degrees and bound up tight too. I called Jet technical service (1-800-274-6846) and they were very helpful. They sent me an E mail note with instructions to align the blade. Initially when we talked, I thought I had to loosen the trunnion bolts to move the blade into alignment.The instruction said to get a flat 6×9R...
