Hi Folks.. I just wanted to share something that happened to me the other day.. I was at the shop working on a sideboard that I wanted to have fluted legs.. well.. not ever having made fluted legs..I kinda had an idea how it was done and ordered a fluting bit.. turned 6 legs on my lathe.. made a sophisticated top mounted jig to hold my router and bit.. checked my indexing head to see how many notches I needed to turn.. and went at it.. sound ok right?? WRONG!.. I totally messed up one ...
I show you an easy way to cope with that sinking feeling once you stain a project and then the glue appears like magic. http://blip.tv/file/3637084
Hey There Folks, I mostly goofed around this weekend. So today was fun as I got back into the woodworking. I went to ACME Tools, bought 2 small bits of popular and got to use my Stanley 4 1/2 for something other than making practice shavings. I am pretty fired up. http://bit.ly/bWQTzY Brian
Short of owning a CNC Router, I can’t think of a better way to cut dados. This is my first attempt at a video. I discovered what a huge learning curve is involved and hopefully I’ll get better. —Gee I love computers! With a lot of help from my lovely wife, here it is—Enjoy! Thanks for watching.Kent
Started off by sanding and finishing the other frame part. And then.. putting things together! O.o Did the other side.. Like my support for that piece? Couple slabs of 8/4 maple on a milk crate. Hey, it worked. I had to fiddle with this a fair amount because I really had no idea what I was doing. Magically, it worked. Also – the frame is FAR sturdier than I was anticipating. Awesomesauce. The brackets are really snug (snug enough that I had to re-screw a couple spots so...

Ok, must figure out how to move first entry in this blog into the series…after pounding the keyboard for an hour last night to vent my frustration on my week-old, week-behind shop remodel, I find that it didn’t post as a series because I didn’t click on the teeny, tiny window banner that popped up when I selected “start new series” at the beginning of my electronic tirade. But, not to worry, will figure it out later…must type now, caffeine levels are high, ...

In another conversation about the 4100 I mentioned an outfeed extension I made for mine, and I thought I’d post some pictures. This is made to add onto the Bosch-produced extension (the metal bits). The Bosch extension is fine for 90% of what I do, but when ripping things upwards of 4 feet, it’s nice to have a little more. This locks into the little grooves intended for miter slot clearance and sits just below the metal extension to avoid snags. It folds up for easy storage. ...
After some thought and more than a little scribbling I came up with this bracket to hold the motor. Its made of 15mm birch ply and so relatively robust .May not look much but in my experience simplest is best. Here is the motor installed.You basically loosen both bolts. Hold the motor up slightly to fix the belt to the appropriate pulleys. Let it drop to take up the slack and tighten the bolts back up. The pivot point is the top right of the three holes.The darn thing works in all three speed...
