Hello LJs, I decided to make a Gauge to help align my router table fence. This is something I have actually needed a few times. I had a fun time in the shop today. Brian

In the beginning, there shall be a sawhorse. #1: Bought my lumber.

08-01-2010 04:53 AM by AnnaEA | 3 comments »

Hit the Busy Beaver today and bought all the lumber I need to make the 14 minute sawhorses. Right now it is all stacked up in Bill’s shed—tomorrow I will go over and use his table saw to cut all the lengths I need. It’s all pine, construction grade 2×4s. The guy in the lumber yard and I went through it all piece by piece picking out lengths that will be decent. Two of the pieces are really nice—I’ll use those for the I-beams, so that the tops wi...

Maloof Rocker - Padauk #1: First cuts

08-01-2010 02:09 AM by yellowtruck75 | 7 comments »

This is my second Maloof Rocker using Hal Taylor’s plans. First time ever working with Padauk, before going to the lumberyard didn’t know it exsisted. Started by cutting out all the parts and staging them for the patterns. Was able to form the seat around some sap wood.

Grizzly Planer

07-31-2010 10:11 PM by Rampage | 24 comments »

Hi Guys, I just purchased a new Grizzly planer model #G58OZ. We connected the Planer and it ran well . However after planing 3 pieces of wood it cut off and would not restart. We checked and there is proper power to the planer. Is there some kind of trip switch? Your urgent response will be apperciated.

Woodworking vacation #21: Staycation - it's what you make it.

07-31-2010 09:23 PM by Betsy | 6 comments »

No yearly trek off to wonderful places for an exotic woodworking vacation this year. Between my health, my schedule and just simply not finding a class that I really wanted to take, I decided to stay home and just take a few classes at my local Woodcraft. I decided this for several reasons, but the most important was that I really needed some refresher courses to get me feeling comfortable with my tools again and to make sure I’ve not forgotten all the rules of safety. So far I’...

Demilune table tops #3: Demilune Table

07-31-2010 09:15 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 27 comments »

Another Demilune Table. This one has a crotch Mahogany Top, with solid Mahogany legs. The legs have a little detail, just to spice them up a bit. I used a jig to cut the cove in the leg bottoms, and to cut dado’s in for a bead molding. While a dado blade in the table saw would work for the dado’s, it wouldn’t do the cove. So, I used a simple jig to do both. I used 2 layers of 3/8” bendy board for the apron, glued up in the vacuum bag, and unibond 800 Ures Resin ...

New Workshop #4: Still moving quickly

07-31-2010 07:40 PM by jcwalleye | 6 comments »

I finally made it into the new space and got to check out how things are going to fit. At 24×24 (576 sq ft) the area seems huge. But I suppose that will get smaller as it gets built-out and tools moved in. I’ve gotten some great suggestions and tips for building this shop right from you folks at LJ, so keep your comments coming. They are much appreciated. Responding to earlier comments, I am planning to paint the interior walls & ceiling semi glossy white for easier clea...
