I bought a Lennox Trimaster Carbide-tipped Bandsaw BladeNot pictured, but it’s super amazing! Makes my bandsaw cut like a t...
Welcome back to one woodworker’s flirtation with insanity by way of making a Jewelry Armoire for my wife. I’m happy to say that I and all of my new personalities are really glad to be done with this project. For all the details, head on over to my woodworking blog . In the meantime… on with the show! I didn’t want to use a table saw to cut these grooves, so I had to make a sticking board I got a little overzealous with the plow plane, slipped, and cut m...
I completed the project last night at 9:30pm but was too tired to take decent photos. In the meantime I’ll entertain you with a few highlights from the past 8 months. If you want the full details, feel free to head on over to my woodworking blog Quadrilinear legs and a dovetailed top frame: Beaded & Shiplapped backer boards: My ridiculously detailed Gantt Chart project timeline Flattening the top Carefully marking the mortise locations on e...
Hi everybody, I’ve been attempting to record as much of the process of designing and building a Jewelry Armoire / Lingerie Chest of drawers as I can manage. The effort to document the work on my personal site is already substantial, so I wasn’t able to duplicate the blog posts over here. I started this project on 11/1/2013 and am 2 days from completing it. I’ve lived with this project in my brain for so long now that I have mixed feelings about being done with it. It&...
Hi everyone, I have been a member on lumberjocks for only a few weeks…but have been a reader for a while. I have recently had the opportunity to rebuild my Great Grandfather’s 1950s era Craftsman 113.xx series table saw. What a journey of historical context and family memories this project was for me! The saw was given to me by my father when I expressed interest in setting up a work shop (I’m 28). While in working condition, it had much to be done and some improv...
King Seeley never bothered to clean up the parts after casting, that was left to future owners and most of them didn’t. My lathe was around for 54 years and most surfaces were rough as a cob when I brought it home. Here I’m cleaning up the banjo.
Continuing the Craftsman theme in our home, I’ve moved to the master bath. My wife has always complained about needing more storage space. I found inspiration for “his and hers” built-in chest of drawers in the plan-book by Robert W. Lang, Shop Drawing for Craftsman Interiors, Cabinet Moldings & Built-Ins for Every Room in the Home. Plans were straight forward. Because the chests will be so close to the sink and submitted to high doses of humidity/water, I chose to...
One thing that I have long felt lacking among my group of tools was a thickness planer. Since I tend to look for discarded wood (I.E. free) to use for projects very often the wood is a bit rough. Mostly it will have a previous owner’s finish on it which I am forced to remove. I’d also like to utilize pallet wood, since it’s free in my area, but my list of ‘rustic’ projects is a bit short. So some time ago, I started saving my pocket change towards buying a...
I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed looking at all of the possible/plausible/necessary upgrades that I need/want to do to my table saw (and other tools but this one takes precedence). So I thought well… I should probably put them in some kind of order – not necessarily in any order – maybe somewhat necessity? As a newb, I just want to make sure my equipment is running as well and as safely as it possibly can. It’s already in great condition for it’s age and I...
I bought my Craftsman table saw about 6 years ago now and it’s been a good saw as long as you took extra special care to ensure the horrid fence it came with was straight each and every time you moved it. The fence system that came in these saw is appalling to say the least and down right garbage when compared to a good biesemeyer style fence. Last week using the saw, I moved the fence and spent several minutes trying to get it straight so I didn’t ruin the beautiful piece of curl...
