Mission Dining Build #4 - The Table

11-17-2011 08:01 PM by pintodeluxe | 0 comments »

The dining table is well underway, with the frame assembled and equilizer slides installed. I think there are some misconceptions about equilizer slides. They work for pedastal tables, or any design where the legs are stationary when opening the table. I had to do some searching to find slides that would accomodate this 46” wide by 104” long table. It will have two 12” leaves, and is 80” long when closed. The other spec I needed was...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #1: Test Drive

07-03-2009 07:15 PM by CaptainSkully | 0 comments »

The first installment of this blog is here due to LJ blogging technical issues… To make sure the dimensions are correct for our new table, we decided to do a little test drive.

I dip my toe into the “what to do with scraps” debate, and a few other things. Enjoy… http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2014/8/12/what-a-waste

A workshop out of the floodplane #3: A new fence for the old saw

01-19-2011 05:20 PM by withheld | 0 comments »

Based on Jamie's blog entries on upgrading a Craftsman table saw with a new delta T2 fence, I decided to do the same.The fence arrived last night I might need some better drill bits for the job and a good center punch, if I understand his blog entries, but it sounds like the thing to do is proceed very slowly and carefully. Which in my case means measure 10 times, cut once. As an aside the thing the fence is resting on is a small pegboard tool holder I started working on. Given my skill...
