Creating the front legs for a black walnut maloof rocker https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6RpZktuUWc&feature=youtu.be
In my last post, I covered the rationale for my design and how I made several cuts mostly on the bandsaw to make one base. I will now discuss in greater detail how I built the rest of the base including the legs and stretcher and how I did the glue up. I left off with this base: Although I made a very similar drawing on my second base none of the line remained after I made a few cuts on the bandsaw. Since I deviated a little bit from the plan, I decided to use the actual first base to c...
A few weeks ago, I decided to join the Coffee Table Build Off started by Neil Cronk. You can read more about his initiative here: http://www.cronkwrightwoodshop.com/coffee-table-build-off/ From the start, I wanted to design something incredibly challenging (at least challenging in the 21 days allowed for the build off). I knew from the start that I wanted my table to look “organic” with not many straight lines. Curvy might be a word to describe what I was aiming for. A bent laminated base ...
I posted a while back about my 14” bandsaw from Porter Cable. It has been a great addition to the shop, but I just could not stop wondering why there was not a work light built into the saw. Other band saws have them, and other Porter Cable products have a work light, so they clearly have the parts available to make it happen. So I decided to resolve this once and for all, and ordered a replacement lamp fixture for a PC bench grinder and then wire it into my my band saw so it would not ...
A bandsaw blade break forces me to change design and technique in making a simple bandsaw box. I actually like this way better than how it was supposed to turn out.http://youtu.be/wCaN9b6XV7I
How I made an easy to build sitting bench from five 8’ long 2×6’s. It wasn’t very heavy after but was sturdy as can be. http://youtu.be/npooHpwGqiM
After cutting about 13 logs I realized that my blade guides were the weak link in cutting straight boards as I kept getting blade drift when cutting through knots. So I decided to double the bearings to better support the blade. I also changed the bearing holder to a peice of aluminum. The aluminum is 8mm thick so it is nice and strong. I cut the aluminum with my table saw and put adjustment slots in them with my slot mortiser. I used an old router bit of course and slowed down the router to ...
I’ve been moving more and more into hand-tool-only woodwork in the past few years, and since my table saw chewed 1/4” off my thumb last month, I finally have decided to part with some machines.Take a look: General model 350 10” Table Saw. Very heavy duty industrial grade machine.Manufactured in North America. This machine is a real brute! Best one I’ve ever owned. 220v/1phase 3hp Baldor motorDouble sheaved drive systemCast iron table54” rip capacityCast ...
Hello woodworkers. I have been busy today preparing my little shop for a shopsmith mack v 10er It seems to run great but I pick it up tomorrow. If anyone out there has experience with Shopsmith mark v I0er would live to hear from you . I really like the idea of getting a table saw, drill press, lathe, drum sander and band saw all in one. It’s gonna save me a lot of space. I have never used a lathe before but I am excited to give it a try.
Hello All, I began a Youtube account to show the stages in making windsor style chairs – starting from a tree. I invite you all to come have a look. I have about 40 minutes of footage, and will add videos as my progress with the chair goes. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLjcQyPlmR1Lx2mnX0Upkm8E-QruOXv2gC
