Craftsman built-ins #9: bookcases

03-01-2013 03:52 PM by mountainaxe | 1 comment »

Yesterday, I finished installation of the two matching bookcases that flank the fireplace insert I constructed in December. This was a difficult build as I knew I had to perfectly fit these two cases against a wall, two knee walls, and the fireplace insert…all while keeping everything parallel, level, and in-line while taking into consideration an old house with sloping floors and wavy walls. The construction of the basic book cases was fairly straight forward; they’re just bi...

Mission Chair Build #1

09-24-2011 02:25 AM by pintodeluxe | 0 comments »

Here is the sketchup of the dining table and chairs I am currently building. The wood is QSWO with walnut pegs. The chairs are glued up, and ready for corner braces and pegs. The table should go quickly compared to the chairs. One chair has almost as many parts as the whole table. Cheers and happy woodworking!

Unisaw Restoration #3: Is 4 tables saws too many?

05-28-2016 03:23 PM by Rapola | 0 comments »

I made some decent progress on the unisaw. With the exception of the yoke/motor bracket assembly, all of the base components are disassembled and I have started stripping the old paint off the cabinet. Hopefully I’ll finish out this long weekend with most of the parts cleaned and primed for final paint. There is a tapered pin holding the yoke/motor bracket together that has thus far thwarted all reasonable attempts with PB blaster and heat. In reading various forums, it seems the ...

On the Workbench #4: Adventures with a Craftsman Midi Lathe

01-04-2015 09:52 PM by ontheworkbench | 0 comments »

I found a Craftsman Midi Lathe (#21752) for an unbeatable deal, and combined with coupons and SYWR points, it was just over $100 (list price $450). But for that price it came with a few problems. I first found it listed on Sears Outlet, and then when I went to the mall store locations, I had to do some asking to get. Upon inspection I discovered that the belt cover was cracked, not much, but just a little. and everything else looked great. The manager suggested that I purchased the protection...

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. It didn’t hurt that we’re having eight people over for a Fourth of July BBQ. We ran over to the big box store and bought a sheet of particle board for $29. When we got it home, I cut it down to 45” x 72”, the finished dimensions of the table top. After I sanded it and eased the edge...

Blogging instead of Woodworking #8: What a Waste

08-15-2014 12:49 PM by Douglas | 0 comments »

Over on my blog, I’ve been catching up on some of the things I’ve been doing for the last several months. One is a set of wastepaper baskets, a few different designs, I made from cutoffs & scraps. 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
