Dust collection solution for my Unisaw

11-26-2009 03:07 AM by Brad_Nailor | 6 comments »

My new Unisaws’ dust chute just dumps on the floor..can’t have that! I tried to track down the Delta made dust collection adapter , but since this saw is 8 years old I couldn’t find one anywhere, so I figured it would be easy enough to make one. Here it is, in all its simple get ‘er done fashion! Just a 4” universal dust fitting from Woodcraft, and some leftover 1/4” ply. I made sure the bottom of the outlet flange was even with the end of the dust c...

Getting Closer!!

11-26-2009 02:12 AM by matt garcia | 21 comments »

Well I’m on vacation this week. Getting ready for Turkey Day, and just enjoying the great cool weather. Just an update on my small Chippendale Chest progress. Well, payday came, and after a trip to Clark’s for some Poplar, I was back in business! Building the draw fronts, and then getting the rest of the measurements for the rest of the drawers. After all of the dovetail work, I final sanded the drawers, and applied a coat of Black Walnut Danish Oil. Now I need to wait 3 d...

What a Buddy!

11-26-2009 01:42 AM by Tom | 9 comments »

Had an old friend call me last week about a table saw. He said he has a table saw that he inherited two years ago and that he didn’t want it and that I could have it. I visited him a few days later and in the garage is an old Delta Unisaw in very good condition. I checked the serial number and it was built in 1946. I’m tickled with my Delta Unisaw and now can retire my Craftsman 10 inch. Tom

My Hand Tool Journey #3: Wood Moulding Plane --Set-Up

11-26-2009 01:10 AM by Kent Shepherd | 9 comments »

Last time I showed a wooden moulding plane I have. Now I want to share how I tuned it up. Keep in mind, while I am a professional woodworker, I am not a long time experienced plane user. I have seen some guys doing videos that really know their stuff. I have seen other guys do videos that think they know their stuff. I simply want to share what has worked for me in my short career in hand plane use. Since I don’t have a video camera, this will have to do for now. First, I disassemble...

Starting a Woodworking Business #13: Happy Thanksgiving from 'The Ohio Craftsman'

11-26-2009 01:05 AM by Sam Yerardi | 6 comments »

I’m getting ready to lay down and take a nap. I just got home from a long day pulling insulation under a 16×32 crawlspace. Very tired but I love it. Not that I want to do insulation for a living but just being on my own, my own boss. I love it. It is a bit scary but I pray about it every day. I went and talked to my lawyer this past week and he is drawing up the paperwork for my business to be structured as an LLC. The name of mu business will be ’The Ohio Craftsman...

First Box #3: Starting over....

11-25-2009 11:34 PM by Bret | 6 comments »

A number of things have gone wrong so far…. First, I (a mathematician by training) miscalculated the size of the box I could make from the stock I had. Came up almost one side short. Figured I could make up the difference by finding another piece of curly maple and cutting it down to match. The grain wouldn’t match up, but I was willing to live with that. Then, I discovered that my )(*&^@)%^ cheap table saw (A 10” Craftsman portable that Wood magazine recommende...

Step 1Attach a guide rail to the log and start the Alaskan jig on the rail ensuring that the chain is set far enough down to miss the screws holdin...
