Infill plane construction #2: Opening my mouth

09-20-2010 02:42 AM by Tony Strupulis | 4 comments »

I finished making the vertical cuts for the dovetails in the sole plate. I clamped a piece of scrap wood cut at 75 degrees as a guide for my hacksaw blade. The guide block began to wear and lose accuracy after a couple cuts. At that point, I made enough guide blocks to use a fresh one for every cut. Before removing the waste form the dovetails in the sole plate, I decided to open the mouth. It was easier to clamp the sole plate in the drill press vise with the sides still intact. I used...

Ronin Woodworking #10: Hey I got started :)

09-20-2010 01:53 AM by spaids | 4 comments »

I didn’t think I’d be able to get started until October but I was able to put in about 3 hours today. I printed some full size patterns of the parts that have curves from my sketchup design. Then I spray glued the patterns on some half inch mdf and cut those out so I would have templates and be able to make exact duplicates. You can see that I also got 5 leg blanks milled. Your thinking, dude 5 legs for a 4 legged table? Well I thought that it would be easier to mil...

Finally bought the tablesaw

09-20-2010 12:48 AM by rlrjr | 2 comments »

Good evening to all. The cool weather that we experienced a few weeks ago has quickly disappeared and summer is back here in north Georgia with another week to 10 days of afternoons in the mid-90’s. The leaves are turning slightly but enough to notice. Autumn and spring are my favorite times of the year here in north GeorgiaI found a Rigid TS3650 table saw on Craig’s list and made the two hour drive up into the foothills of the Smokies to take a look at it. I believe the fella sai...

Squarerulerbevelangelbandit (yeah right MaFe!) Blog

09-20-2010 12:26 AM by mafe | 10 comments »

SquarerulerbevelangelbanditOr just a old English set square and bevel gauge, becoming a transformer! The story is that I bought this wonderful vintage English engineers tool:And of course I had to go crazy on it! So I cut a steel ruler into 8 cm of length, why 8? Because I wanted to be able to make 1:8 dovetails…And since there were a spur, I made a hole, and then it can also go sideways (even I have to count down from 5,5 if I go from the set square). I also gave it some new ...

Maloof Rocker - Padauk #7: Headrest

09-19-2010 11:24 PM by yellowtruck75 | 4 comments »

Today I finished all the transition grinding and attached the headrest. The headrest still doesn’t have the back support holes drilled but I fit and shaped it in. Still have to glue up 3 more back supports and mill them all to a uniform size. I did the final trimming on the rockers today (no picture) and next have to glue up the transition pieces and round over the edges. I have two weeks to complete this chair before my wife and I move, promised her no red dust in the new house. ...

On the Floor !

09-19-2010 10:46 PM by canadianchips | 1 comment »

Is it just me or ?I have been reading about how some people are using portable miter saws and table saws just sitting on the floor.Any time I set up a temporary work area I always use tables, workbench etc to get the saw off the floor. Nothing more dangerous than bending, kneeling or however, EVERY time you need to make a cut. A little time to organize your work area will pay off at the end of the day !Some of the stands that come with these portable saws are junk. Wobbly, tippy, etc. I make ...

proper table saw Maintenance and Tune Up

09-19-2010 06:18 PM by dakremer | 4 comments »

hey guys, I found this link to a page on maintaining and tuning up your table saw. It has some really valuable information. I think the information comes from a book you can buy – but this link lets you look inside the book for free. Its a safe link. I am no spammer – I am a regular here on LJ’s… Just trying to share the wealth of knowledge! :) enjoy http://books.google.com/books?id=94ehjlxt6PUC&lpg=PA53&ots=nUJITJtQSg&dq=worm%20gears%2C%20table%20...

Drying Lumber

09-19-2010 05:09 PM by Clay Ortiz | 3 comments »

I wanted to post how I dried my first batch of lumber. The material that I am building my bench out of was from this first batch. So far everything is working out fine with the workbench. I haven’t had too much movement or cracking. At this point I think I am safe on the bench because it’s not going into a conditioned space. Here are some pictures of the wood I am drying. It is at 12% mc. This is the way it has been sitting for a little over a year now. This metal roofing...
