Bandsaw Spacer Block

06-08-2009 07:15 PM by Joshua Howe | 2 comments »

Okay I have a question my band saw apparently takes an odd size blade 92 inch.So my local woodcraft doesn’t carry this size but they offered to have it made and sent to my house.I haven’t done this yet because I want to put a spacer block in the band saw. My thoughts are that I can fabricate a spacer to the height I would need to run a 105 inch blade. So if I am running a 92 inch blade how large of a spacer block do I need to get to 105? And I was also wondering if anyone ha...

Copper Patina Garden Gate #4: Cutting the Segmented Arches

06-08-2009 06:09 PM by newTim | 0 comments »

Firstly… acknowledgements and thanks to Jlsmith for his response and link to Gary Katz's Sketchup Video on segmented arches. It was very helpful in my understanding of the topic of concentric circles, arches, and such. I divided the arch cut in to three parts. The first was to cut the outside arch. Second was the inside arch. Third was to complete each cut using a flush trim bit to reference off the first cut for each. I set up the door frame on a large piece of MDF on my (new) ...

DeWalt Radial Arm Saw #2: The clean-up continues

06-08-2009 05:34 PM by CutNRun | 2 comments »

I’ve been splitting time between making a storage cabinet to mount the saw on and cleaning up the saw. This weekend I made a bit of progress in between yard work and my youngest daughter’s belated birthday party. Previously, I had pulled the motor apart and cleaned it up prior to replacing the power cords. The mounting rails were removed and cleaned. The photo shows one done and one to go. I also removed the arm and motor from the base and cleaned and repainte...

Strange names, weird looks Crazy stories & Rare Trees

06-08-2009 05:11 PM by California Urban Lumber | 6 comments »

Most people know about trees like Pine, Oak, Maple & Walnut (if you’re in woodworking and haven’t heard of those trees, you’re either in the wrong business or on the wrong planet); but there are some trees you don’t hear about every day. Trees can be fun, dangerous, or just plain old strange. Check it out: 10. The Elephant Tree: These trees are relatively short, growing to about 10’. Their trunks and branches are reminiscent of an elephant’s legs and...

Brainstorming Stage

06-08-2009 04:56 PM by James | 4 comments »

So I have all of this old barn siding. The barn in my estimate was 100+ years old (Wish i would have taken a picture of it). I managed to pull some of the more useable planks off of it, and here’s what I have: The box is made from this wood and stained with watco danish oil and 1 coat of poly. I would like to make something rustic out of it, as it has lots of wear. There are bug tracks, nail holes, stains, and imperfections in all the boards. They are pretty warped...

Chi Omega Dorm Room #1: The Plan

06-08-2009 02:16 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

I am building a total of 17 beds for the Chi Omega Sorority house. There will be 10 single beds and 7 bunks. These bed are a different design. The regular singles will have a 80” tall headboard with just a couple shelves. They will have 23” tall drawer units on one side and doors on the other side and the foot for larger storage. The bunks will be built with a solid panel on the foot and a headboard similar to the single beds. They will all be built from maple wood with just a clear...

Downstairs Built-ins Extravaganza! #12: Where I'm at!

06-08-2009 07:38 AM by BethMartin | 14 comments »

Got some stuff done today, so now I need to get some pics up! This is the back of the top part of my shelving unit, before I put the back on. And this is with the back on. I painted it first, then attached it. It’s just cheapy pine tongue and groove. It’s really hard to photograph the color but I think this pic is close. I’ve left the wall side stile off until I can fit it once it’s up there. I finally relented and bought a pocket screw jig and will attach it wit...

Slice and Dice

06-08-2009 05:44 AM by closetguy | 10 comments »

A while back someone asked a forum question about what everyone does with their scrap wood and cutoffs. The overwhelming response was for inlay pieces, or firewood. I also do the same thing, but last fall I gathered up some scrap and made up bookmarks for gifts at Christmas. While doing this I sort of got carried away with it. Making bookmarks are like making cutting boards. It’s not difficult and its fun experimenting with different designs and wood types. With glued up blocks, it’s ...
