Finally, I placed all of my sharpening equipment and sharpening stones onto this single mobile cart. This is my sharpening center. It consists of my Grizzly T100010ANV 10” Wet Grinder that I used my Tormek sharpening jigs that are mainly used to sharpen my turning chisels. When I started sharpening I used this flat granite stone with sandpaper with grits from 120 all the way to 2,000. After taking a Woodcraft sharpening class taught by the store’s owner Ryan Balls two weeks ago...
My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1791: It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like (Kim) Christmas
I have always been one of those designers that loves to work on designs from others that I admire. I can't help it. I see something that someone else creates that 'speaks to me' and I can't help but try to make the time to create it. I look at it as helping support the industry that I love so much. It also gives my brain a rest and keeps me feeling like I am having fun. After all – I believe that enjoying what I am doing is linked in a big part to the amount of success t...
I have a love hate relationship with my air compressor. Yes, its useful, but its loud and very annoying to empty the water from the tank. It also takes up valuable floor space. So, I decided to solve 2 of the problems. I mounted the compressor as high on the wall as I could. (about 9 feet up). This gives me easy access to the tank drain (when its not broken) and frees up valuable floor space. Granted, getting up their was a challenge. Use a loop mounted to a stud in the ceiling ...
Thank you for looking!
Since this is supposed to open like a large book. Back page has been finished up. I placed a blank in the clamps this morning for the second page. Added the outsides on the bottom page.. Only need three pieces, this time. Page one did need some slots made, though.. Because there needed to be a way to lift a bit up out of the holder. Backsaw to define the slot. chisel to chop it out.. Then marked the side pieces for height, and saw them to size. Had to keep track of which se...
I found this box tucked away today and realised I had never completed the blog or posted it as a project way back in 2013. Its got a few veneer chip outs which need fixing but I must have lost interest in it. So here is a few completed shots warts and all. I had a magpie stroll over to see what I was doing then all his mates arrived to get in the action I just kept taking pictures and they just got closer and closer They even checked out the internal trays as w...
For any of the LJs interested in seeing just how big this monster is I thought I had better add these final photos before the table heads off to my Sons Place for Christmas. Its just dry assembled at this stage hence if you spot some parts missing thats why. The top as reported previously has suffered shrinkage all around the various spots on the edges and also across one of the table top joins. Its nothing unexpected but I didnt think it would be as pronounced as it is In this ph...
Although I referenced Boy Van Dyke’s Fine Woodworking Magazine article about his multi-use RIP fence jig in a prior blog post, I thought I should include more photos showing the melamine fence that I bolt to the RIP fence jig in order to cut my tenons on my Saw Stop table saw. I made two versions of this melamine fence; one is the height specified in the magazine’s article. The other fence is two inches taller than the magazine’s article. I also implemented Bob’...
Today I trimmed the tenon shoulders on my table saw. I am glad I own an Incra 3000 HD miter gauge. I thought I had completed all of the shoulder trims, but while plunge routing the through mortises I discovered I had missed one of these shoulders. I had taken the Incra miter gauge off my Saw Stop. No problem, though. Since I have extended the fence to cover the length of the legs, all of my settings to trim these shoulders were still there. All I had to do is remount the Incra miter...
