10-25-2009 10:27 AM by azwoodman | 5 comments »

My wife and I need a little hall/sofa table and I want to build something so here we go… Here’s a SketchUp picture of what I have come up with so far… I am thinking solid wood for the legs and aprons then two sheets of 3/4 ply glued together with some solid wood edge banding for the top and lower shelf… (Wood choices might be: all walnut, all mahogany, or maybe wenge legs with a contrasting species for the rest of the piece.) The edges of the top and and o...

Ruminations on a new block plane... OR you don't always get what you pay for...

10-25-2009 07:13 AM by Gatsby1923 | 3 comments »

Ninety percent of all my hand tools I inherited from my father but he never owned a fully adjustable block plane. He personally did not see the need for all those adjustments in a block plane.

It may appear a little short in this picture but there are some spacers to be addded which will add a few ...

Tablesaw Workstation #8: One Side of Top Almost ready for Formica

10-25-2009 02:08 AM by JohninSD | 1 comment »

Took the clamps off yesterday’s glue up and routed the edge banding flush with the MDF. The router couldn’t reach the inside corners but a few minutes with a block plane and a once over with a random orbit sander with 80 grit paper and the left top piece is nearly ready for the Formica. I need to fill the booboos (technical term) and the holes left by the brad nailer and apply a few coats of varnish to the oak. I’m also thinking I’ll use a belt sander and round over th...
