Alex's Coffee Table Build Off #2: The complete base

11-12-2014 01:33 AM by Nitreug | 0 comments »

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...

Alex's Coffee Table Build Off #1: Design and base

11-10-2014 12:24 AM by Nitreug | 0 comments »

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 ...

On the Workbench #3: Porter Cable Bandsaw Modification - Adding a Work Light

11-09-2014 05:36 AM by ontheworkbench | 2 comments »

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 "sort-of" bandsaw box

11-08-2014 07:49 PM by Nick Ferry | 2 comments »

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

Homemade Band sawmill #6: Blade guide upgrade/modification

11-07-2014 09:19 PM by geekwoodworker | 4 comments »

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 ...

shopsmith mack v 10 er

11-04-2014 10:05 PM by patty | 9 comments »

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.
