I was very excited about the chance to share a few things I have learned in the last three years of doing intarsia art. Before intarsia I did a lot of wood carving so I hope this helps give each project more depth and definition. I will tell you now that most of the things I’ve lear...

I am back with a new update which brings us to the current state of the project.First of all, thanks to everyone who shared their interest on this experiment.As I basically make it up as I go along, any advice, past experience or actual tool description is very welcome. I did not have a spare blade lying around so I bought a cheap (still it is high carbon steel and appears to hold an edge decently) block plane blade. I chose a block plane blade as the metal is thicker than many bevel down ...

Building My Roubo Bench #3: Rough Cutting the Lumber and Starting the Top

01-29-2012 07:16 AM by Andy Panko | 2 comments »

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...

Worksharp 2000... almost

01-02-2012 07:31 AM by Bsmith | 4 comments »

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 ...

Squaring my miter saw

12-11-2011 06:19 AM by thiswoodshop | 2 comments »

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 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...
