The Craftsman's Path #41: Dreadnought Guitar - Installing the binding and purfling

06-20-2008 02:45 PM by Mark Mazzo | 2 comments »

Now that the channels have been routed it was time to install the binding along the back and top as well as the decorative purfling along the top. It was interesting and a bit tricky at times. Take a look at the details at my blog. Thanks for reading!

Tablesaw Improvements #1: Adding a bit more rip fence railing length to my tablesaw.

06-20-2008 05:12 AM by Jon3 | 2 comments »

NOTE All of my photos have been migrated to a new provider, and the links in my posts are likely out of date. You can find the photos here. I have a stock G1023SL tablesaw, which has the “30ish” inch rails. It works out to having approx 26” on the right side of the blade, because the rails are somewhat more centered than traditional rails. While this might be useful on a right tilt saw, when you might want to move the fence to the left side of the blade to avoid a trap...

My Woodworking

06-20-2008 05:10 AM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 4 comments »

I was talking to a guy yesterday and he said he had a garage full of woodworking tools and just didn’t have the drive to get started. He was amazed that I had made a house full of cabinets and that was the first time I had made kitchen cabinets. Well, I told him something that I had not really thought of until I said it. I tried to explain my woodworking motivation by saying, “You should always take on projects that you have never done before and really don’t know how to ...

Small Painter's Cabinet #4: Cutting the sides to proper dimension

06-20-2008 01:48 AM by Stephen Fields | 4 comments »

Like I said earlier, I accidentally set up the table saw with a dado blade before I realized that I had neglected to cut the sides to length. Since the template I am using is based on the dadoes being the correct length, I had to remove the dado stack and put in the normal blade. When I perform cross cuts, I use a sled. This is particularly important when I need to cut many pieces to the same length. Here is a picture of the first side sitting on my cross cut sled. (Note: This is version 2...

Hey Everyone, In this episode of the Teen Age Woodworker i will show how i made the square ebony inlay in my hickory picture frames. !

Well ...

Dust Collector Retrofit Grizzly

06-19-2008 07:50 PM by Karson | 14 comments »

GaryK posted a blog about trying to get his dust collector modified with a canister filter. I was thinking about doing the same, and after his post I checked into the requirements. This is my existing setup. It is a Grizzly dust collector with a 2 HP motor. The metal ring in the middle measured 19” across. I called Grizzly and they have an item called an additional cannister. Not sure if that means you can stack one on top of another or what. But I asked and they said that i...
