Band Saw Sled - 60 Degrees

07-27-2012 10:59 PM by Bob Simmons | 4 comments »

The 60 degree band saw sled as seen in the woodworking video is made from scrap. It took 15 minutes to build from scrap material. As you can see, it is used when cutting small wood pieces for wood inlay banding & parquetry. What kind of band saw blade is being used? ...Wood Slicer – 1/2”, skip tooth, 3-4 TPI. It provides an excellent cut. Can a 60 degree sled be used on the table saw? ...Yes, of course. In fact, my shop is equipped with one as well. Why do you use ...

07-26-2012 08:41 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 8 comments »

All in all it was a great event with a lot of great entries. I would like to thank all those who participated in the 1st Annual Whirligig Wars Contest. When I presented the idea of holding a whirligig contest to Steve Ramsey (Woodworking For Mere Mortals) he and I agreed it would be a fun summer event. The response was overwhelming with over 6000 video views of the videos relating to the contest and many great comments from woodworkers all over. So it was decided early on that this would be ...

Rocking Horse #10: Finished (Almost)

07-23-2012 12:30 AM by MC | 1 comment »

Completed the final sanding this weekend and applied the finish. I used a 1 pound cut of shellac as a sanding sealer followed by four coats of polyurethane. I will let the Poly harden for a week or two and rub the finish out to a high gloss. I learned a lot on this project and am looking forward to seeing it put to use.

Tool thoughts #20: Moving Back into my shop

07-13-2012 04:17 PM by NedB | 2 comments »

Hi folks, I’ve been away from LJ for awhile, mostly because my shop time has been effectively at zero for well over a year. Not anymore. My wife, youngest son and I moved to VA last summer, and back to NY about a month ago. This means that I a) moved most of my tools and lumber not once, but twice in the past year and b) I now have to clean out my shop and put them all back in it! Here’s the plan for the revised shop. I have a 12’x20’ mini barn that my tools ...

The old time woodshop journals #13: Country spoon carving

07-09-2012 11:43 PM by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

Well it sure has been a heat wave over here on our side of the farm…..man oh man the daily temps in the high 90’s with a good dose of humidity to boot. I sure hope all of you are taking your woodwork slow and carefully if you are working outdoors or like me in a non air conditioned shop with fans only. I took a bit of a break for a few days to keep things cool…....literally…lol. My Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table is still ongoing with the top being worked on ...
