Patio / Deck Bench #1: Medicine cabinet on hold - Bench slips ahead

05-27-2010 05:38 AM by Blinky | 3 comments »

I set aside the me I decided to use some scraps of IpĂ© from the deck that was built a couple years ago to finally build that bench, to sit on top of said deck. Here is a sketchup snapshot of part of the design; And a few of work in progress. I cut the butt-swoop in the top of the ‘ribs’ on the bandsaw. I cut the dadoes in the rail to fit the seat supports w/a router, then drilled holes for walnut dowels.I tried use the best SS screws I had, but the 1st one snapped, and ...

Cutting veneers on the bandsaw, from green wood?

05-26-2010 06:55 PM by Brian Havens | 4 comments »

I have done my share of veneer work, using both commercial veneers and veneer I cut myself on the bandsaw. I also do a lot of turning, mostly from green wood. Until now these two pleasures have remained disparate, but this past month, those pleasures collided. It all started after I scored some logs of Claro Walnut. There was one particular piece of crotch that I could not figure out what to do with, so I left it in the shape of a block. About a day later, while looking at the photo b...

Just a quick update....

05-24-2010 11:57 PM by Shawn Sealer | 2 comments »

I took some new pictures of my shop. (More on my site) They are all in the shop section on my blog. The old ones were taken with my cell phone, so the quality was not the best. Still working out a few things with my blog (trying to get some things with Google search worked out). I’m having trouble getting this site to show up in Google search. Hope to get this stuff worked out soon. If anyone can help it would be grately appreaciated. Also, I have been editing away, I have taped a...

Bandsaw/Drill Press Box

05-21-2010 05:34 PM by clieb91 | 3 comments »

Ok so here is the blog to go along with my lastest project. I really wanted to do something in the shop from start to finish yesterday. I was cutting up some wood I got from work due to storm damage and decided to cut a few otherpieces that have been floating around in my garage for a while. A bandsaw box is something I have been wanting to really try for a while (made a few experiments) So here is the process I took from a fresh log. Sorry did nto get nearly as many pics as I guess I should ...

Laguna Tools Jointer Planer Combo and Bandsaw My Worst Nightmare In Progress

05-19-2010 04:51 PM by Caleb James | 30 comments »

I recently purchased a 16” jointer planer combo and 18” 3000 Series Bandsaw from Laguna Tools. It has turned into my worst nightmare. I have spent $6,245.83 on this order. It arrived damaged and I properly noted it on the freight bill. I contacted laguna about the most obvious damage to the band saw. The upper flywheel had come apart in shipping. I rebuilt it and it seems to work fine now. My nightmare starts really with the jointer. In short this machine should edge join using...

New Venture #1: "Do what you love, the Money will Follow."

05-15-2010 05:54 AM by NedB | 5 comments »

That is the title of a book I read awhile back. Basically it teaches that one should enjoy the work which is done. If you truly enjoy it, then the work isn’t as hard. My DW and I have decided to start making and selling cutting boards at craft shows. We’re dividing up the labor, I’m handling the crafting, she’ll handle the booth work. My plan is that this will be one aspect of working for ourselves to bring in more money , ther other being my photo studio work. Now ...

Guitar Build #1: Hooligan Guitar Build Day's 1 and 2

05-14-2010 03:00 PM by rcflyer23 | 8 comments »

I have decided to build my own guitar. It’s something I have wanted to do for a long time and I hope to eventually turn it into a FT hobby someday.. So I finally took that first step this week. I got plans from Chris over at http://www.eguitarplans.com he draws up some really good plans. The body is going to be a 2 piece Solid Mahogany body. I started by cutting the two sides to length about 19” for this guitar so that I had a little extra to play with. Glue U...

Tool Gloat #1: I can't help but brag - Delta Band Saw

05-13-2010 06:02 AM by docholladay | 2 comments »

I saw an add for some older band saws advertised on Craig’s list. A millwork shop had upgraded to an 18” band saw and they had 2 14” saws they were selling. They had listed a Powermatic and a Delta. When I got there this afternoon, someone had already purchased the Powermatic. However, I discovered that the Delta was an older Delta that is in very good condition. It is a 1 HP with enclosed base. Runs smooth. It needs a little bit of tuning and cleaning, but otherwise ...

Just for Fun... #14: An Adventure in Bandsawing...

05-12-2010 08:02 PM by littlecope | 20 comments »

Last night, after dinner, I went out in my Parent’s yard to have a smoke, on one of my favorite benches in the world…It’s an old-timer I found at the dump about 40 years ago… I brought it home, and my Dad put new slats on it to replace the old broken ones… a fresh coat of paint and it’s been “in-service” for many years…You may ask, “What does that have to do with Band Sawing?!” Well, I’m glad you asked!!I looked up from m...

Medicine Cabinet Part ?? #1: Not quite chronological process

05-12-2010 02:24 AM by Blinky | 0 comments »

I finally have the door looking more and more like a door. I’m sure I’m going about this bass-ackwards, but I’m beginning to feel happy about the results.I’ve gone from this: TO THIS for routing the profiles, I used Whiteside 6001 matched pair rail & stile bits. So next i will cut and assemble the box/carcase, so it will fit the glass shelves. Then I will trim down the door stiles to fit that size, with about 1/2” on both sides and the top as ...
