Great Tool Buys #1: Super Tool Buy!

02-01-2010 06:50 AM by BRAY | 6 comments »

Last Monday, while searching for a biscuit jointer I decided to visit a local pawn shop. There it was, a Dewalt DW682K. It had been used once, maybe twice. It had a $75 price sticker on it. After seeing them selling for around $200, I decided to buy it. I’m glad I did; it works great.

Storage for this old house... #1: The design....

01-04-2010 02:35 AM by RichClark | 3 comments »

We have an old house and there is not place to put anything…. Our closets are tiny our rooms are cluttered with chests and junk, the stairways have chests and piled on junk. The reason for this is that A/C or Heat was not invented when the house was constructed. So we pile up towels and sheets and such in several trunks and chests that while they are pretty(I made them) the are unpractical. Thus we start Sandi’s Crhistmass present ! SO. in that light I was tasked to build ...

A journey into the workshop. #28: A mantle clock underway in the shop.

12-13-2009 06:07 AM by dbhost | 8 comments »

So the mantle clock project is underway, the walnut and oak strips are cut, and the stripe section is glued up and drying in the clamps… It is now too late to run power tools, so the cross section will need to wait until tomorrow. I had a $10.00 off any purchase of $20.00 or more at Woodcraft coupon, so I got my walnut there. I really only needed / wanted 2 board feet anyway, just enough to finish up this project, and maybe do another one for MY desk after Christmas is over…...

Wood Whisperer Out Feed Table #3: Lets Put This Thing Together!

12-02-2009 06:59 AM by Brad_Nailor | 3 comments »

So, now it’s time to put some parts together. I started with the leg assembly’s first. I decided to use 3-#20 biscuits, glue and screws. I thought about pocket screws, but I think for the legs the biscuits, glue and screws will be the strongest. I referenced all my slot cuts from the fence..this is important..either use the fence or the base, but don’t use both or you may have some alignment problems, depending on how your biscuit joiner is set up… Pretty straig...

How to find great figure wood other than Burl

10-24-2009 05:33 PM by OregonBurls | 8 comments »

This is in addition to the burl blog I put on a week ago. Thank you for all the reads.This is to the best of my knowledge and I am still learning.I have found crazy figure in tree crotches. A tree crotch is where two branches come together. It is usually the piece that fire wood people don’t want because it doesn’t slit. That is because the crotch is the hardest part of the tree and the grain in going in different directions. It’s where you get what is called “feather”. “Haring bone, r...

20 Steps to a Checker Board... a beginners guide

10-17-2009 04:57 AM by Demowen | 7 comments »

I am currently finishing an education class so that I can teach Technology Education (shop class). My last assignment was to create a project that checks for the understanding of the previous lessons. I chose to do my lessons on shop tool safety and usage so it only fits to do a project to show off those new safety skills. I know you all are experts here ;) so I thought you might enjoy picking this apart! I created a simple project that uses the majority of common shop power tools. Her...

How to find and harvest legal burls!

10-13-2009 05:44 PM by OregonBurls | 38 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....

Plate Jointer Jig

10-07-2009 07:07 AM by davidroberts | 12 comments »

I need to cut about 200 or so biscuit slots for a set of bookcases, using my PC plate joiner. First time I have used the joiner and noticed it jumps around so I built a jig to hold the joiner securely in place against a fence. The jig is a modifed, striped down version of one shown in a magazine, I think Better Homes and Garden 101 Best Shop Jigs Ever. The plan called for a plywood base with a 1/8 inch masonite top, T-slots, hold-downs, the works. Mine is just 3/4” MDF thrown togeth...
