Bandsaw Restoration #2: Progress, at last

04-10-2010 05:25 AM by Jimi_C | 8 comments »

Now that the temperatures are slowly but surely starting to climb again, I’m finally able to work in my garage again for more than 5 minutes. In addition to my table project, I’ve started working on restoring the Power King 912 in December. I’ve been slowly but surely striping off pieces, but had run into a road block with the wheels… the bearings were stuck solid. Someone on LJ (Grizzman?) suggested I look into getting a gear puller, so Harbor Freight to the resc...

Bandsaw boxes #2: Tiger Tiger

04-07-2010 03:47 PM by BritBoxmaker | 11 comments »

Outside my comfort zone again. This is my second experiment with the bandsaw and patterns. Materials are Yew and Ebony. The patterns are about 50×120mm and 7mm thick. They’re more like Tiger and Anti-Tiger as one is obviously the negative of the other. Can’t make my mind up whether to make two individual boxes or slap them together lengthways to make one long pattern for something like a pencil box. Front sideBack sideSide by side Or I could slice them through ...

Jet BandSaw #1: Jet 707200 10Inch Band Saw With Stand Model JWBS-10OS

04-04-2010 08:31 AM by LarryDNJR | 4 comments »

I went a little out of town today south of Columbus to Circleville here in Ohio to a place called Grandview Weekend Outlet that my folks had told me about. It is kind of like a big lots/odd lots liquidation outlet store. I was going through the hardware/tool section when I happened upon a busted open cardboard box that ended up being a Jet 707200 10Inch Band Saw With Stand Model JWBS-10OS. Sticker on it had it listed at $95.00. I initially tried to haggle with the guy starting at $70.00 h...

Adirondack Chair & Table #8: The Final Installement: The Adirondack Side-Table

04-01-2010 04:44 AM by jcontract | 2 comments »

I’ve been working for a few weeks now, a few hours a night getting the side-table built. It wasn’t that difficult to do. But it was fun nonetheless. Assembling the base of the table. The legs go on with glue and screws from the back. The most difficult part of the whole assembly was getting the spacing correct. The plans called for a distance of 18 1/4”. So it was a matter of getting the 2 ends of the top to run parallel at 18 1/4” while maintaining th...

Bandsaw boxes #1: The Eyes Have It

03-27-2010 10:51 PM by BritBoxmaker | 7 comments »

Inspired by the work of Patron I have recently rescued my bandsaw from its dusty corner of the workshop and have produced this pattern. I intend to use it as a box top but might just frame it and hang it on a wall as a picture. I think it looks like a pair of eyes, hence the title. Heres how its made 1. Take four square slices of timber; Ebony, Purpleheart, Yew and Sycamore of identical size. 2. Tape them together with double sided tape. 3. Cut your pattern. 4. Mix and match to create a...

Beefing up the jamb to my new shop door.

03-23-2010 05:07 AM by 559dustdesigns | 0 comments »

Here is part two of my attempt at installing a new shop door. I again bought a cheap door and I am doing my best to reinforce the door and jamb from possibly being kicked in. I know this isn’t the most professional job, but I should only have about $150.00 into this project. The new door looks twice as good and is much more secure. In order to reinforce the jamb I first upgraded the strike plate which I showed in blog part 1. http://lumberjocks.com/559dustdesigns/blog/14664Today I f...

Guitars - Classroom project #1: Shop assembly

03-19-2010 06:36 PM by unisaw2 | 8 comments »

I have volunteered to help the kids make their own guitars in class. The children are 9-10 year olds, and they are learning about sound. We want them to assemble/make as much as possible. The goal is to make a 4 string guitar that can be tuned. Notes will be A-D-G-B. The basic design is a 4 string neck, sauna tube body, and 1/8”mdf sound board. We are using real guitar tuners and strings, but everything else is going to be made in the shop, or in class. Need to make a total o...

Building our own washer, dryer pedestals. #1: Cutting out parts, & starting assembly.

03-15-2010 06:29 PM by Dick, & Barb Cain | 23 comments »

We recently purchased a new washer, & dryer, & we didn’t want to spend $400 for the factory pedestals, so I’m making my own. They should cost us about $75 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~This is the factory made pedestal~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The front load machines are kind of low without a pedestal. It makes it kind of tough on the back muscles.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...
