Motivation for a bandsaw tune-up

12-26-2017 12:21 AM by WhattheChuck | 6 comments »

LJ Gang— I’ve been doing a bandsaw tune-up, and thought I’d post the end result to motivate folks that might have been putting this off. Uh, like yours truly. These are a test dovetail corner I cut to see how it all worked out. And here is a 7.5” resaw veneer I also managed to make. Pretty awesome! This bedeviled me forever—the ability to do this. What did I do? 1. Changed both top and bottom bearings ($80)2. Added an aftermarket Kreg fen...

Brynn's Desk Build #4: Overview of the build

12-17-2017 09:47 PM by BenhamDesign | 2 comments »

This writing desk is one of my favorite builds. Made from cherry, with spaltted maple for the side panels and drawer pulls. The drawer pulls are held in place with walnut posts for a little accent. If you are interested in the build process here is a little build video. I started out milling the legs and cutting them to length. Next, laying out the joinery and drawing in the curve I liked for the legs. It is way easier to cut all the joinery to before cutting the curves. This gives...

Band Saw Slicing Jig #1: Tenoning Jig for cutting thin rings

11-24-2017 12:39 AM by Julian | 6 comments »

I needed to reduce the thickness of a segmented ring and in the past I just did this with a handsaw. This time I decided to try it on the bandsaw with my tenoning jig. I removed part of the tenoning jig so that it would clear the blade. I attached a piece of plywood with double sided tape to extend the reach of the jig. Then I attached the ring with double sided tape and made the cut. The tenoning jig has an adjusting knob that allows you to make fine adjustments. You can cut very thin...

Roughing it out (Wooden Sword and White Sword)

11-10-2017 03:52 PM by NadarCreative | 2 comments »

I decided to try and make some wall art pieces based on the first Legend of Zelda game on the old NES. I grabbed some pine boards and printed out some large pixel art of the items as they appear in the game, roughing them out on the band saw and sanding them more accurately into shape. I also have both boomerangs and the blue potion to show soon. This should be a fun ride…

Frame saw, maple scraps #1: Parts...

11-09-2017 11:52 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

This may be a short blog….decided to use some of the Maple 1×4s in the scrap pile.. There was a 1×4 about this long….I ripped it right down the center, to make a pair of handle blanks. I had a few old Butcher’s Meat saws just rusting away… This one is the larger one still sitting around. Two others supplied a few parts, and an 18” long saw blade. Drilled a couple holes, bandsaw to rough ly shape each handle…there was a longer 1×4...

Ok, had a few scraps of Poplar, just sitting around, getting in the way Trimmed a few down, to see IF I could make a box out of them… Laid out some tools, to make a few dovetails.. Just the Usual Suspects….Laid out some pins, since I do pins first.. Went to set up the Shop Stool, so I could sit while I work… This is where it normally sits at, when I am running a saw.. This time, the welds on the stool decided to gave way…..had to saw the first set sta...

A project in Maple #10: A chain and a brace for the lid

10-12-2017 05:27 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

A trip to Walmart…..bought a packet of chain & hooks…16’. Was the shortest they had. More for hanging a flower pot, but….I only needed a wee bit. Rest can still go to hang a flower pot…. Set the id opened to where it looked about right…eyeballed the length needed, and grabbed the bolt cutters to trim the chain to length. Two screws, set into pilot holes, to hold the chain….that was the “easy part”... So, how to hold th...

Magnetic Fitting System for Dust Collection

10-11-2017 10:06 PM by davemoorefurniture | 3 comments »

Hey Lumberjocks, I’m not here to sell you anything. However I do want you to check out this product I’ve developed called Magport. I’ve been a woodworker for many years and I began developing this magnetic fitting system several years ago in an attempt to make connecting and disconnecting flexible dust collection hose fast enough to keep up with my workflow. Often I rearrange machinery to accommodate super long boards which requires flexibility in the dust collection. ...
