Delta New Unisaw #1: Delta New Unisaw

09-27-2009 03:13 PM by Mike | 5 comments »

I have been shopping for a top quality saw and I was leaning Sawstop because of the Safety Feature,but I must say that I did have a chance to look over really well this time the new Unisaw by Delta. I was very impressed with the saw. To begin, they did redeisgn a new mobile base for the which is just as beefy as the table board. I like the fact the Trunnion System was a single cast iron system, the bevel guage which can be adjusted in the front. dual front cranks, they worked pretty smoo...

Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw #10: You gotta do whatcha gotta do

09-27-2009 06:30 AM by Bothus | 4 comments »

Hi Lumberjocks, I couldn’t believe what a productive day it was today. Unfortunately, I was working on the Honey Do List not the Unisaw. However, I did manage to buy a few more things I need. I bought some black Rust-oleum for the parts of the saw that need it. And even though I don’t care for Harbor Freight much I went there and bought a dial indicator and I am very happy with it. I just returned the one I bought from Amazon. I don’t want to start a rank but I&...

I Met LJ Member Dave Mitchell Tonight!

09-27-2009 06:19 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 12 comments »

LJ member Dave Mitchell and his wife stopped by tonight. Dave, also known as Splinters, lives in the far northwestern corner of Montana in West Glacier. That is at the western gate of Glacier National Park. He and his wife are traveling to the midwest for a visit with family and they had to come right by my place in Billings, MT. Since I live just spittin’ distance off the freeway and the KOA is just down the street they decided to stop by. Dave is a real Montana kind of guy, a...

Learning the Basics #1: Learning to mill lumber by hand

09-27-2009 06:04 AM by postoastie | 1 comment »

I’ve just started learning about woodworking and collecting tools. One thing I’ve learned so far is that I should have made a jointer and a thickness planer some of my first purchases. I didn’t. I chose other power tools I thought I needed, and now I will have to wait on the jointer and planer. Oh, well.In the mean time, I am teaching myself to mill to dimension by hand the lumber I am using. I am making a workbench, or trying to. I want to make it with all wood and gl...

A Preview of something different for me

09-27-2009 04:44 AM by clieb91 | 2 comments »

Ok, So this coming week I will be married for 5 years (how time flies). It just happens that the traditional gift for a 5th anniversary is wood (How lucky!). I wanted to do something a little different and beyond what I have done before. After looking at various ideas on the web for small boxes to put something else in.. I found RunnerDucks small keepsake box. I thought this was a great idea and would hold the other gift well. So I decided to first make a prototype out of what else.. a 2×...

Lizzy and I build a birdhouse

09-27-2009 04:28 AM by Kjuly | 5 comments »

I posted a short story on my blog and wanted to share.Lizzy and I build a Bird House There may be more than one way to build a bird house but for me this is the only way. Let me start with how these birds houses came to be. My granddaughter, Elizabeth, was in need of a new guitar so she could jam with her dad, Michael. The story goes like this, Elizabeth’s seven year old hands could not handle dad’s full size guitar and her piggy bank was a little short of the $70.00 needed to buy th...

Learning to design #1: My first sketchup plan - tea anyone?

09-27-2009 02:28 AM by mtkate | 3 comments »

I was looking around my workshop very early this morning trying to figure out what I was going to do… and hit myself over the head many times for keeping all sorts of small pieces of wood. I decided I would go back through the things I favorited, and see if there was something that will help to use the wood. I linked up to Rah’s “Tea, anyone?” project from last xmas: and decided that would be the project. As I started to dr...
