Hammer A3-41 #2: Moving an 800 pound jointer/planer into my basement shop

03-06-2018 08:34 PM by CharlieK | 4 comments »

View on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1h2sW8dLpO4 I was a little concerned about the initial delivery of the new combo machine, especially since I have a long driveway it’s wintertime here in Minnesota. When my bandsaw was delivered several years ago the driver wouldn’t back into my driveway. He just parked on the street and we wheeled it up to the garage on a pallet jack. As you can see by my first post, those concerns were unnecessary. NOW, I had to get th...

Sharpen your bandsaw blade

03-06-2018 06:18 PM by stefang | 17 comments »

Not my ideaI saw a Youtube video about sharpening bandsaw blades with a chainsaw sharpening machine here. I found one of these machines for close to the price it costs me for a new bandsaw blade, so I thought it might be a good investment if I could get more mileage out of my blades. The sharpening machineAll of these chainsaw sharpening machines are probably made in the same factory in China and while there may be some small differences between them, you can likely get them all to work. T...

Cutting Boards and Bandsaws

03-06-2018 04:48 PM by Steve | 4 comments »

I normally don’t mind saw blade changes, but I make an exception for the bandsaw, which is no fun at all. After the struggle to get the old blade off and the new one seated, there’s the long tedious process of setting the guides just so. In this case, I was installing a new resaw blade. I ruined the old one well over a year ago when I hit a hidden spike in a chunk of reclaimed pine. The blade made it through the steel, but (of course) was never the same again. I’ve be...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #4: Frames, part 1

03-02-2018 12:50 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, trying to get caught up here…A while back, I was able to haul the 1×2s to the shop, and make a few cuts with the “small” mitresaw.. Should be enough parts…I hope. Set up the Larger Mitresaw’s depth stops…. Found the stock holders.. Now you know why there are those slots in the mitre box’s deck. Since I was done with the other mitre box, I put it’s saw away… That little saw will get used a bit later, I folded up t...

Hanging Jewelry Box

02-24-2018 03:31 PM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I made this jewelry box to store necklaces and rings for my daughter as an bridal shower gift. I made it to hang as a small cabinet but it would be just as nice sitting on a dresser. In this easy wood project i use a mix of hand tools and power tools. This was a fun weekend woodworking project! I hope you like it.https://youtu.be/Z0YMjwnBBBo

Fixing Up a Couple Woodworking Chisels

I don’t usually get lucky at yard sales and flea markets when it comes to finding old woodworking tools but I recently came across a couple chisels and a gouge that needed some handles and some time at the sharpening station.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gAuP58ixbg

Ok….Wasn’t that great of a day Sunday….door came out of the clamps…..and I fought the rest of the day with it.. Corner brackets: despite pilot holes, still snapped a bunch of screw heads off….even broke the bit in my Vix bit! One corner wanted to split out….got that taken care of… Size of the door vs size of the door opening…...somehow, despite measuring everytime I turned around…the width of the door was too wide for the openi...

Logs to Lumber #2: Milling a Cherry Tree (and a video)

01-30-2018 08:39 PM by JohnMcClure | 1 comment »

Funny how things work out, I started building the kiln assuming I’d find some wood to mill. Before the kiln was finished, though, the wood found me! A colleague discovered a cherry tree, cut down and limbed, at a local park. We suspected it had washed up in Hurricane Harvey, as the river had flooded the entire park about a month previously, and there were no stumps nearby. Reasoning that the fallen tree was a safety hazard, I dutifully performed a community service by removing flood deb...

Building a Spherical Chess Set #2: Time to get Serious

01-29-2018 03:32 PM by johnstoneb | 2 comments »

It’s October and most of the summer and fall projects and river trips etc. are over time to get serious about this chess globe or forget it. I thought a lot about how to build this globe over the summer and thought I knew how I was going to do it, then I started on it and there were changes on the fly every day I think. My neighbor is a very good wood turner and does a lot of large bowls, live edge, green etc. I was talking to him and he told me he was getting a new lathe a larger on...
