Are these the type of people we want here

02-10-2010 05:20 PM by shack | 41 comments »

I was readin the forums and stumbled accross this you kid asking for advice. as I read his post I was appaled at some of the responses he got from grown men . I have been on this site for a long time and I have never seen this behavior. This site is in my opinion the BEST WOODWORKING SITE ON THE INTERNET. But if we allow this type of behavior to continue it will go down hill fast. I will say this if I owned this site I would ban the ones that posted s...

Burst Pipe!!

02-10-2010 05:17 PM by Sivers | 10 comments »

Arriving home from vacation it appears that we had a pipe burst in the basement. Of course everything flooded and knocked out the furnace. Luckily we had someone in to check on our cats so they had someone pump the water out before we got back. So we get to find out why we’ve been paying for home insurance all these years. It took a few days to get everything back under control. We’ve now got running water and a new furnace. Looking at it now, the basement is cleaner than it ev...

Workshop Build #3: Laying infloor piping

02-10-2010 04:29 PM by ~Julie~ | 6 comments »

In June 2008 it was time to start getting the in-floor piping and the electricity hook-ups into the foundation before the cement could be poured. The wood stove that will heat the new workshop as well as our house will be placed in between the two buildings. It will sit at the side of the driveway approximately 50 feet north of the house and 75 feet south of the workshop. Since our hookups will need to be at the farthest side of the house, a trench needs to be dug about 75-100 feet each ...

Plane restoration #14: So many planes.... time for an storage solution...

02-10-2010 09:01 AM by Alonso | 12 comments »

When you have so many planes and not an effective way to storage them, you need to came up with something, and quick, at least that was my situation. For the last couple of weeks I was looking for the “right” design, I did some research, and several of you make some pretty good suggestions. I decide to combine a couple of designs and make my very own Plane Storage Wall Hung Cabinet. It hung from the wall very securely thanks to a French Cleat, So far it serves my needs, ...

Jigs... #2: Bandsaw circle cutting jig

02-10-2010 06:49 AM by Hoakie | 10 comments »

Another staple jig for the bandsaw is the circle cutting Jig. I created this from ideas on the internet, can’t remember the exact site but if you do a search you’ll find it. 1) The center part slides out with a pin near the end to act as the pivot point 2) The radius of the circle is measured from the blade to the pivot point 3) Fence aligns the jig to table, the knob locks the pivot slide in place 4) penny is used to distribute pressure across slide which presses i...

Jigs... #1: Log Sled for Bandsaw

02-10-2010 06:24 AM by Hoakie | 8 comments »

One of the reasons I got my Rikon 14” Deluxe was to mill small logs into lumber and bowl blanks. In order to do this safely it is important to keep the log steady while pusing it past the blade. Here is my version of a log sled that I built for it 1) The base is 3/4” BB Ply. On the top I have placed two Incra tracks to help adjust the depth of cut. 2) I have added a runner to the bottom to ride in the miter slot on the BS. (it also fits in the slot in my router table ...

Twin-Sized Bed With Pull-Out Desk, Closet, and Dresser #6: The closet unit, part one

02-10-2010 05:57 AM by gbarteck | 4 comments »

In our last episode…The dresser was completed (except for installing the hardware). Now the first of two installments on the mini-closet. When I started the mini-closet for this build I didn’t think it would take very long at all. But this portion of the project turned out to the most interesting part of the project so far. I started out thinking that the closet should be the simplest thing; a simple box with two doors on the front. When I wrote down all of the parts of ...

A Father's Dream...

02-10-2010 05:19 AM by gbarteck | 25 comments »

Anyone who’s looked my profile may have seen a mention of how my long-term goal in woodworking is to learn how to be a luthier—to build guitars in particular. That’s quite a ways off in the future for me. I actually have had an interest in stringed instruments for a long time. I don’t know how to play any of them, though I would like to someday. My two oldest children and my youngest play musical instruments… a talent that certainly got from their mother,...
