An Unexpected Break from Woodworking

524 days ago by Chris Mobley | 7 comments »

I had an unusual experience yesterday that is leading me to take an unexpected break from woodworking. Now, I only expect this break to last a few days, so no need to worry. The strangest things seem to happen to me, and my immediate family for that matter, that I could not resist telling the story. Yesterday, I took my manual transmission work truck to get its state inspection done. Since I don’t drive it very often, I had been neglecting to get it done for quite some time. I took it to a...

A BOO-BOO

584 days ago by Roger | 41 comments »

I consider myself to do and be safe at times when I need to, BUT, in a blink, and because of a stupid moment, this is what can happen. I should have stopped when the switch on my dust collector started messin with me, then, I resawed a small piece o Maple, and right at the end of the cut, I realized that I didn’t tension the blade…it still cut pretty good, BUT, and this is the big BUT, I am embarrased to say, my finger kissed my table saws spinning blade while cutting (thank God t...

Death of a Dado Set

838 days ago by PASs | 13 comments »

Well, at least it wasn’t me that bought it this time.I made a gavel and striker on commission from some of the Indian Dontknow I use for a lot of my projects (post on that to follow).I had emailed the customer to let them know they could pick it up.I told the wife they would come over the weekend and she said “You should make a case for it.” I told her that would be more cost, and I haven’t done a case before so it would take about, oh, a year for me to get it figured ...

Can I get a free SawStop? #1: I think I have an idea so that all of us woodworkers can get a free Saw-Stop!!

900 days ago by sillac | 21 comments »

What do you all think of this? If collage girls now will be able to get $3000.00 over 3 years for birth control protection, under Obama Care, the reasoning being that this is cheaper for all the rest of us tax payers than for the girl getting pergnet for having her social fun; and what is the cost for the rest of her socially fun life, then how much more cheaper is it for the tax payers to pay for a Saw-Stop table saw, about $3000.00, for all woodworkers so that the woodworkers can have safe...

My Hand Tool Journey #9: Lawsuit Pending!

1142 days ago by Kent Shepherd | 45 comments »

I went out to my shop early Monday morning. How wonderful to have a day off work to get work done on several projects I have going. I was working on an antique dining chair we have. As I was trimming a piece on a rung, my Japanese hand saw slipped—right down into my hand. If you don’t know how sharp these saws are, this is not the way to check. I didn’t think at first that I hit my hand that hard, but boy was I wrong.Lovely reds stains everywhere. I spent the rest of the ...

Lathes and Turning #1: My New Toy! A Mini Wood Lathe!

1177 days ago by swamps42 | 10 comments »

Today Harbor Freight had a 25% off coupon. I used mine to buy a mini wood lathe. My best friend was with me and he bought a set of chisels for me as my birthday gift. I’m so excited, and already very covered in saw dust and wood shavings. Naturally, I tried to just jump in, I mean I’ve used my itty bitty Dremmel lathe before. I made a HUGE mess of a scrap of 2×4. Then I came inside at my friend’s urging, watched a few Jet videos on YouTube, and went back out to the g...

Bread Board (s) #3: Routing Foes

1368 days ago by PurpLev | 12 comments »

Time to dress up that middle section and hollow it out for a drawer. the idea is to hollow out ~3/4” thickness from the bottom, leave ~2-3” shoulder on the sides and back, and trim that opening edge with a dovetail form that the drawer will slide and lock into. I started by boring most of the material off with a drill press and a forstner bit – fairly simple and fast, and went real well. Next I took an extra 1/8” bite off of the height using a 3/4” straight...

SawStop Cures the Idiot!!

1379 days ago by DrAllred | 15 comments »

Well, I love the SawStop Table Saw, Technology is just absolutely great. So this is the story, and I am still able to type with all of my fingers, but one is a bit painful to do so. I was in the shop, working on some small projects that I have been toying with and making jigs to create them in an easier way than just brute force. I had just finished recovering a lot of 1.5” plywood from a pallet I got from work. In doing so I had to use the riving knife on the table saw as the gu...
