Not really part of the class but I think it emphasises that grain orientation is paramount…This morning I dressed some European Wild Cherry and some European Walnut to make another End Grain Board… When I saw how the grain was running in one piece of the walnut I thought about how I could give it a little extra oomph…. A bit blurry but you get the idea…the dark part of the walnut get larger as you move from left to right… both top and bottom.. But what ...
Hey LJ! So a few weeks back I posted some mid-project photoes of how my bandsaw build was going and although it is not entirley finished and still needs little extras like a coat of paint, a stand and a fence I can now show you the fully working and (built bandsaw). Heres a quick video showing the build process… Enjoy! Its been a great project and I hope to soon post another video showing it in all of it glory.
After several months of waiting and anticipation, the moment finally arrived when I got a chance to really get to know and work on my new Excalibur scroll saw! Even though I had the saw delivered to the show in Saratoga Springs, there was little time for me to enjoy it and really run it through the paces. I was very busy at the show and I must say that I was only at the booth a couple of hours a day, during which time I was usually talking to people who stopped by. Both Keith and I were ...
Version 1.2a At this point I decided to get more “radical” in my design approach. I removed two of the cross rails (found out through experience that I didn’t need them anyway). Then I took the corner poles out of the flanges and put a “sleeve” on the side of my table for the corner poles to slide into (see photo below). Electrical conduit clamps work great for attaching the sleeves. This design also allowed me to adjust the height of the router sled in...
Click for Hi-Resolution Video Woodworkers throw away your roller stand once and for all! My last Ezee-Feed video was a bit of a teaser as I unpacked and started the installation process. Well I finally got the Ezee-Feed system installed on my saw. What a sweet accessory! I have a very small shop. This system allows me to cut sheets of plywood without any help. As a side note, my saw guard was left off for clarity while shooting the video . . . something I would not do on a regular ba...
WOODTURNING from the Wheelchair(just a copy and paste from www.jamiespeirs.com ) Woodturning is one of the crafts that lends itself towards most disabilities. It can be done in a fairly small area with relatively inexpensive equipment. It is not overly strenuous and can be quick to show results; hence it’s mass popularity. The object of this is not to go into any great detail about woodturing itself, rather on guidelines on what look for in a course or in a tutor. Red Pine Three T...
http://www.finewoodworking.com/item/18761/james-krenov-1920-2009 For those who were lucky enough to study James Krenov’s works, books, videos and interviews…well, when I read his book 30 years ago, it was what interested me in woodworking. And now he’s gone.
About twenty some years ago I bought a professional door making router bit set made by Freud. Included in the set, which I still own and use even after making hundreds of doors with it, was plans for a router fence. I bought the set for the first set of raised panel doors I made. The doors were for another contractor, and he needed them pretty quickly. After seeing the plans I realized I could make good use of a fence like that. It had the same adjustments as a shaper fence. The left an...
I live in France and a few years ago purchased a 10 inch Bosch PTS 10 table saw. The PTS 10 is a scaled down version of the Bosch 4000 sold in the US. The PTS 10 is a good saw. It has enough power at 220 volts (1400 Watts) and the blade is very precisely square to the miter slots. Here is a picture of it when I bought it. It has a sliding table to the left of the blade and a slide-out out feed table notched to accept the sliding table. Further, there is a slide-out support on the ...
Hi everyone; I just wanted to thank Jude Herr, also an lumberjock, or maybe it’s jockette) for her article on a new ezee-feed product. http://www.toologics.com/News/Cool_Tools/The_New_Ezee-Feed_Lite__200905191358.html Lee
