Band Saw Rip Fence...the Video

11-11-2010 01:17 AM by Bob Simmons | 6 comments »

“Necessity is the Mother of Invention” Plato….Ancient Greek Philosopher…(428 BC-348 BC) This short video shows the beauty and simplicity of the Band Saw Rip Fence. The L-shaped fence in the video was made from scrap MDF in 10 minutes and was available for use immediately thereafter. You will notice a protective strip of oak that was glued and pin nailed to the rip side of the fence. This will allow the fence to be used for a long time. The first time you use it y...

Trestle Table Desks #1: Milling the leg parts and mortising

11-11-2010 12:40 AM by Lee Barker | 2 comments »

General outline: Two identical desks, 30×72, 6/4 cherry with a juniper accent somewhere. Progress shown here: The milled parts for the leg units. The verticals will be mortised into the feet and the opposite piece to the feet—what is that, the head? The shoulder? I think I like “shoulder” better. The juniper panels will be inset between the two verticals (femurs?). I’ve not yet decided how tall the panel will be, but the width is 5”. The feet ar...

Not what was planned but more than expected

11-10-2010 11:42 PM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

If you’ve been following this blog at all you’ll know that I’ve been working on adding a router table top to my table saw. Many of you have provided very helpful insight. Well, things have take a serious turn for the better. What started out as a just a router table top has turned into an outfeed table as well. I was seeking the advice of a friend the other day and the next thing I know we’re in his shop totally revamping my original ideas. The only problem is tha...

The grease box story #5: Grease box owners club - GBOC

11-10-2010 10:51 PM by mafe | 65 comments »

Grease box owners club.Ok – I admit it’s childish and stupid. So it was time – time to make a place on the web, a place for the GBOC. So what is the criteria to be GBOC member? You have to have made a grease box, or received one from a fellow wood worker.Once you have done so, the GBOC will be extremely happy if you post your name, a little story of the box if you want, and a picture here as a comment under this post. This will make you a full born member right ...

Shop song of the day #6: 11/10/10

11-10-2010 10:28 PM by Raftermonkey | 1 comment »

Today I have a double feature for two reasons. 1) I think Aint Life Grand may be a re post, but this is a super clean version. 2) Goin Out West doesn’t have a whole lotta lyrics and some people prefer lyrics over the music and if I’m not mistaken, Sonny, the percussion player is playing a wood slit drum in this one. This way we can have our cake and eat it too. “IN MY MIND I WAS A CHILD….AND IT FELT GOOD”!!!!!!.Widespread Panic, Aint Life Grand..Widespread Panic...

~ Salute to All Veterans ~

Fellow Lumberjocks, I just wanted to take a minute outside of our woodworking world to salute and thank all my fellow Veterans, leading into Veterans Day. I proudly served in the US Air Force from 2003-2009 and have seen what some soldiers go through to keep our freedoms at home. Thanks to all the family, friends and supporters too! Mike

Counter-intuitive Productivity (jointing an edge AFTER sharpening)

11-10-2010 07:52 PM by swirt | 10 comments »

There have been several times in my woodworking hobby where something has been introduced to me that at first seemed WRONG or counter-intuitive. Probably the first, was over 20 years ago when I was told I should not grip a saw handle so tightly. What? No death grip is needed? Hold it like you are holding an injured sparrow? Of course now I know that to be the truth …. but at the time I thought it was crazy talk. Today I read Ron Hock’s blog and he suggests jointing the sh...

Built In Closets #6: Face Frames

11-10-2010 06:23 PM by SPHinTampa | 2 comments »

Final step is to attach and finish face frames. I may have already covered this but here is the face frame glue up. Dry fit with clamps to make sure everything lines up. Lessons Learned … do not store your framing materials like this: A warped face frame is difficult to fix, no matter how are you nail it, clamp it and glue it. See my shame below: Next step was to set up tower on saw horses ($22 for metal saw horses that fold up at Lowe’s – I r...
