A few months back I began searching for a 14” band saw. I had my dad’s 9” Ryobi and needless to say hit the limitation ceiling with it PDQ. In my search I finally found a mid-90’s model Craftsman Professional 14”. The seller had gotten it from a neighbor but had never used it. When I turned it on it screamed like a banshee. The blade was way out of alignment, and when I opened it up, sections of the dry, rotted tires fell out. At only $75 and there being nothing ...
been a few days? A couple of glue ups did indded happen…. Second one was also done. Set them aside for now… And started to work on the seat parts… Sawn a curve where the slats for the seat will attach. Each one of these is just a hair longer than the other. Front one being the widest, and the back one the narrowest. There is a middle one. set up with 1” long tenons on the ends. This will do for now. Had resaw work to do, twice.. Used one of the...

Side #1 was completed today.. The tenons go into “housed’ joints, where I trim the area around the stretcher, where it meets the post. I just saw a bit on either side, chisel a flat spot, ajust the tenon for length. Clamped the other rocker to the completed side. had some marks to transfer over to the next set of posts. After messing up the notches in the rocker the last time by doing the posts first. This time around, I made the notches first. Set the square to...
Just a little update while I’m away from the shop! https://merzkecustomwoodworking.com/2016/05/20/back-to-the-blog-and-so-many-updates/
This is a first draft of what should become a nice illustrated tutorial on making a pair of one piece pipes. The pipe making process is much more complicated and needs a lot of tools to make. Pipe making requires: Table saw Drill press (several bits) Band saw 4” Stationary Belt sander Oscillating Spindle Sander 1” belt sander 8” disc sander ROS sanding @ 120 & 240 Hand sand with sanding sponge At this point the pipe is ready for finishing. ...
Well, after rehabbing a few other items from the Birthday Rust Hunt…..time to resume that rocking Chair project? Figured i’d need some 4/4×4 stock to make a few things for the back and seat. Been using the bandsaw…it was making a lot of racket, got to looking around…and wound up tearing it down. Lower thrust bearing was out too far. rubbing on the frame. Got it back, the tracking reset, so i had to work on the upper guides as well. Might get a new b...
I wanted to do a video on making scoops but my camera is not set up for what I want to do so I’ll do it in pictures.The first thing you need to do when making a scoop is to determine the volume needed and then calculate the dimensions needed .
