Bandsaw #1: Bandsaw 1

10-22-2011 01:36 AM by DamnYankee | 7 comments »

Several months ago I bought a used Buffalo 14” bandsaw ( my first bandsaw). In the process of refurbishing it I’ve put on new tires, new cool blocks, blade guide bearings, and new blades. Now I can’t get the wheels co-planner. I can get the top wheel’s upper and lower edges in line with the lower edge of the bottom wheel but cannot get all four edges aligned. The upper edge is about 1/16 (or less) out of alignment. The then comes off in only a few hand turns of th...

Sam Maloof inspired rocking chair #2: First try at the Maloof joint **Project on hold pending move**

10-14-2011 12:57 AM by sandhill | 2 comments »

Not having done this before it was a bit of a challenge to do I hope the joint is tight enough after the glue is in the joints and its clamped up. This is just the dry fit for now.In the two photos below are the left and right front legs. Today my 1/4” down cut spiral bit came so I will be routing the holes for the back slats then next week when my new band saw blade gets here I will cut the seat profile, sand and scoop the seat then comes the front legs.One thing I realized is you ...

48" Pocket Door #8: Preparing the bookmatched panel blanks

10-12-2011 05:45 AM by GregD | 3 comments »

It has been a long time since my last blog post. Sorry. I was more intent on getting the door done than writing about it. At this point the stile and rail blanks are complete, so I turned to the panels. One option was to make each panel the full thickness of the door – 1 3/4 inches – and raise the panel on each side. A second option is to make panels half the thickness of the door – 7/8 inches – raise the panel on 1 side, and use 2 panels back-to-back for each...

Toy Boeing Stearman Kaydet Bi-Plane #4: Shape the body

10-11-2011 04:49 AM by RandyMorter | 0 comments »

The final shaping of the body is done using a band saw, router, and sander. First I laid out the taper of the sides. Either way the cuts are done means that the flat surfaces will be reduced after one cut or the other, and it will also be harder to lay out the cuts because the lines need to be drawn on non-flat surfaces. I decided to cut the side tapers first thinking I could use double sided tape to re-attach one cut out to help preserve a good flat surface. I didn’t end up followin...

More Pecan Wood To Slab up

10-10-2011 09:17 PM by cdbridge39 | 2 comments »

We Have a lot of storm damaged pecan trees here in the south. All you have to do is ask and its yours. Well you still got to cut it and load it but its free. Two trailer loads is about all my back can stand at one time. I have a small chainsaw mill that fits on my bar and I slab out chunks of wood. It’s also called a beam maker but you can cut any size slab you want to. All you have to do is move the board that the mill runs on over and screw it down. You also have to sharpen your chain...

Starting My Business #5: The Sweet Smell of Sappy Cherry

09-21-2011 06:08 PM by ChrisCrafts | 2 comments »

Last weekend I picked up a good size Cherry tree for cheap. 2/3 of it is going to the lathe and the remaining 8 foot section is going to be slabbed up for tables & such. This gave me the opportunity to make my first bowl blanks. I have had about 2 cords in the back 40 (sq feet) for the past 6-9 months. I hadn’t cut any of it up yet, and it was started to wear thin on the wife’s patience. Now my whole shop reeks of Cheap Black Cherry Soda. The Cherry was cut down in early...
