Got an excuse to buy a Riser Block..

10-17-2009 05:10 PM by Rick Boyett | 8 comments »

A couple of months ago, I bought this bandsaw off Craigslist. It’s a great little Grizzly BS. A couple of weeks ago I bought about 50 bd ft of Black Walnut from a fella at First Monday Trade Days in Canton, TX for only $2.00 a bd ft. (killer deal). I think I forgot how big the opening is for my BS. Looks like I’ll be buying a riser block and new BS blades now. I’m going to use this lumber to build a baby crib..

Look at that! #2: I was supposed to pick up my Delta bandsaw today but that's not gonna happen

10-17-2009 03:12 PM by Bothus | 5 comments »

So yesterday I called the guy I bought the bandsaw from to confirm the time for me to pick it up today. It’s about a 3 hour round trip for me. He answered the phone and I asked the question and I hear a long pause like he forgot I was coming… Turns out he is going to deliver it at 8AM this morning because he’s coming out here to pick up some other tool. Cool. Hey maybe I can take the bandsaw to work so I work on it after hours? Nah, I’d feel like I was cheatin...

How to find and harvest legal burls!

10-13-2009 05:44 PM by OregonBurls | 37 comments »

Hey everyone, It was suggested that I start a discussion on how to find and harvest burls. Please give your input also. I don’t deal with straight grain that often. I cut and sell burls for a living so here is what I know. It is illegal to harvest a burl without permission. of course if it is on your own property you can give yourself permission. What I do is put an ad on Craig’s list saying I want your burls. Most people don’t know what burls are. So you don’t get that many calls....

Workshop #9: A New Addition!

10-12-2009 07:07 PM by clieb91 | 5 comments »

Well I have been watching Craigslist almost daily in order to find a bandsaw. Last night I did and sent a message quick to the seller. Went to look at it this morning and bought it. At under $100 it looked to be in great shape and runs good. Older Sears/Craftsman model with tilting head. Has the fence and miter gauge as well as some nice casters and I was able to find the manual online for it. I plan to do a bit of tuning up on it in the next month or so and can hopefully put it to ...

Look at that! #1: There is an empty spot just to the right of my Craftsman contractor's saw.

Good thing I won the ebay auction for this Delta Bandsaw. I won’t be able to pick it up until next Saturday. I won’t be able to work on it until I’m not with the Unisaw, but at least I know what my next project is going to be. Bothus

My first project is a baby cradle. We are expecting our first in April, so should be plenty of time. Though who knew it took so long to get those edges square! I am taking an introductory wood working class, so thankfully each time I have no idea how to proceed, the instructor is there with some tips and guidance. It started with a board… Squared (oof – who knew that would take so long!) Cut to length..Glued…Planed to proper depth. Rockers cut with bandsaw ...

Boat building #1: In need of spiritual applicant with free plans

09-27-2009 06:08 PM by threehands | 2 comments »

Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...
