After letting the lumber acclimate for a couple of weeks, I rough cut all the pieces, leaving them all slightly oversized so I can cut, joint and plane them down to final dimensions along the way. I have a 12” miter saw, but it is not a slider. Therefore, I’m not able to cross cut 12” wide dimensional lumber on it. So I made a basic little cross cut sled to make all the cross cuts on my table saw. Since the top of the bench is the most important – functionall...

Well, I didn’t get the Worksharp 2000 for Christmas so in Lumberjock fashion I made my own. I did get a new set of the Stanley Sweetheart chisels (review to come) and needed a way to sharpen them. I was going to just bite the bullet and go purchase a workshop but with the latest reviews from Stumpy and others I had some great ideas to work with. Some how I ended up with two Delta 5” disc sanders so I decided to upgrade one. So first things first, I removed all the accessories ...
I had a Ryobi 14 Amp 10 in. Compound Mitre Saw. It was working fine but could only cut a max of 5 inches wide boards. I was in the market for a new on but all of the sliding miter saw was so costly. I even considered a Harbor Freight one, but even at that it was a $100 and more for one. I decided to check out craigslist.com and found a Kobalt one there for s feel. Well, after I got home I found out why it was so cheap – it was not square. I tried a couple of time to square it up but it...
In this video I show you how I go about changing the blades on two different styles of thickness planers. For more woodwork related goodness check out my website at http://www.JordsWoodShop.com
Cheap handy and ideal stropping compound. Take a Non Gel l toothpaste, keep it wet, apply to strop and have at it.
It’s snowing here so Its out of the unheated shop and staying indoors – good time to make the blade clips. I chose to use stainless steel because I waned a material that won’t rust, be strong and capable of sustaining the blade tension, and I like the color (not a big fan of brass although I do like it as an accent in some cases). I ordered some 1/2” stainless steel rods from Speedymetals a while back for no real reason when I ordered some other material as it was o...
I got my shipment from highlandwoodworking earlier which included the frame saw blades. I couldn’t resist and tried them on some cutoff material to see how well the cut and even freehanded without them being stretched tight they performed real well. I got 2 blades, both 27.5” long. 1 is a 5 TIP for cross cutting and the other 9 TPI for ripping and joinery. Yes, the cross cut blade has a lower TPI but what makes it a cross cut blade is the teeth geometry. In this picture you can...
There wasn’t a lot of excitement going on yesterday for me. I am not sure if it is a good thing or a bad thing. I am leaning toward good. I suppose when thinking it over, the best thing would be to have a few non-exciting days in a row and then a couple of exciting ones thrown into the mix just to keep it interesting. There are times when we seek excitement and although I wouldn’t go as far as saying that I ‘look for trouble’, there are times when I choose to add...
