Having the right tools

12-13-2011 08:05 PM by Nighthawk | 11 comments »

Those few of you that follow my mere attempts to be a wood worker will know I have fun doing it no matter how the project turns out. Whether it works out great or an failed attempt. Or whether it is a biggish project like the coffin or a small one like the cribbage board. Having the right tools for the job can make things so much easier, yes I will agree with that statement. However as we all know you don’t always have the right tool or all the tools you require or want to have in yo...

Shop Improvements #5: Band Saw Fence Finished

12-12-2011 01:41 AM by wolflrv | 3 comments »

In the previous post I had a pic of the glue up for my little bandsaw fence. I finished it today and thought I’d post a couple of pics. The bandsaw is old, but I got it for $10 at a garage sale and all it needed was a new blade. The switch is dead, but the variable speed still works. I just flip it on and off via a power strip switch. It works for now! It’s a very simple design, but works very well. The wood plate on the back is loose, so it kind of floats into plac...

Obelisks #1: Cutting Process

12-11-2011 10:06 PM by Jim Jakosh | 10 comments »

Obelisks are fun and easy to make and great use of wood from a project that would otherwise be discarded. I made a few and have had some LJ’s ask how I do it, so I thought I’ll take a few pictures and save a few thousand words. I start with a rectangular block with a square base. I find the center on one end and draw line from that center to the corners at the other end. I bandsaw down the lines being careful to always stay outside the line. It is better for finish sanding than a...

Unorthodox Bandsaw Box #1: Box making steps

12-11-2011 09:42 PM by Jim Jakosh | 28 comments »

My wife asked me when I was going to make her a box to keep our business cards in when we travel. I had made a few boxes but never one upon request- especially from her. So I wanted this to be special. I went about making a bandsaw box in an unconventional way and I was having a problem with the hinge design. One night I had a dream of how to do it and wrote it down right away in the morning. Here are the steps I used to make the box using mainly the bandsaw and the scroll saw for one tough p...

Building the shop #3: quick update, ramblings...

12-06-2011 07:29 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 0 comments »

Hi folks,Been trying to make progress in the shop every weekend. I have no evenings available during the week due to my work schedule and long commute. So, weekends are made for woodworking, or in my case, for getting ready to do woodworking. So far, progress has been good and steady until last weekend. Saturday was one of those days where I needed to really be a husband and give some focus to my wife and so I did. We had a nice time on Saturday and I even persuaded my beautiful wife to ac...

Christmas Came Early!

12-05-2011 06:01 AM by Ryan Haasen | 12 comments »

A few days a ago, my dad came home my christmas present, a Grizzly Go153×2 17” Bandsaw! What a beautiful saw. It took about a half hour to take it out of the crate and about two hours to set it up. He also picked up some timber wolf blades or Viking blades is what they were called at that store – a 1/2” and a 3/16”. I put the half inch blade on and did not bother with the blade it came with. I began ripping so two by fours to test for drift, nothing. Then I re-sawed...

Rocking Chair Build #11: Cutting the Head Rest

11-29-2011 06:31 AM by Topapilot | 1 comment »

In the last post you saw my fancy-schmancy headrest cutting jig. Well, I couldn’t come up with any reasons not to use it, so I loaded up my one and only headrest blank, fired up the saw, and started cutting… Here you see the back side of the headrest after the first cut. As you can see, the blade blew out the back side as I went along, but I figured I could sand it out… It’s a bit hard to see, but this picture shows the blade position just after exiting...

Building the shop #2: The beginning...

11-27-2011 12:39 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 4 comments »

Good day fellow dusty chippers,Short entry here – thought you’d like to see what I started with in the garage – the big mess… The picture is midstream in moving stuff around to find stuff to throw away and give away. Since the beginning of the big purge, I’ve made 6 trips to Salvation Army (so far), put countless objects on the end of the driveway with FREE signs on them and furnished 1/2 of house for the new family across the street. OK, may 1/3… seriously...
