"Portable" Table Saws #2: Be careful when cutting Dados!!

2547 days ago by Hawgnutz | 22 comments »

I have done it hundreds of times—making repetitive cuts on table saw—and I am sure you have too. But NEVER get complacent using a table saw! There I was cutting a doado in a length of soft cedar, guiding it on past the blades, when it bound up and shot back! When it did, it not only broke my newer fetherboard, propeled the board back into my truck tailgate, but it also drew the push block—with my hand—back over the spinning dado blade. Here is the board. I ...

Pine Shaker Closet Dresser #2: Gluing, pocket holes and stanley #45

891 days ago by PaBull | 10 comments »

Today I went ahead and got the boards for the top and sides all cut up. The sides are nice and straight. And we are gluing up the boards. I do them one board at a time. this way I have a better control over the alignment of the boards and I have to do less planing and or sanding later. Below is an other picture with the designing of the dresser. I used a FWW magazine to get some inspiration on how the build the “guts” of a dresser. I need to see this coming together still. ...

Why everyone needs at least one Shopsmith & other ramblings #2: (actually reason #1) The dedicated extra tool

1292 days ago by Shopsmithtom | 17 comments »

I thought it would be easy to find the time to knock out a blog piece every now & then, but I was mistaken. Maybe if I were a faster typist…then again, maybe not. Life (in this case, the holidays & re-building a couple of Shopsmiths…that’s sort of a holiday for me, too) just got in the way. But, Here goes. I’ve been going through in my head exactly how I should approach this, and since it’s been an ever-changing thing, I’m going to keep the form...

I did it, I got me a table saw.

1518 days ago by crank49 | 13 comments »

Been looking, reading, evaluating and rationalizing for months. I bet I have read every entry in every woodworking blog I could find that had anything to do with table saws. I have known all along what I wanted was a cabinet saw because the only table saw I ever had access to was a 5 HP, 3 phase, 12” Powermatic back in the 1980s. A high standard indeed. Likewise I have known what I could afford would probably be between a starter saw and a jobsite saw (or a lucky find for a used saw). I...

French Fry Friday #5: Drawers With Hanging File Rails

916 days ago by Chris Davis | 0 comments »

Okay, I haven’t posted a French Fry Friday post in a while. This is where I talk about those small things or accessories that normally get overlooked in my project post. This week I am taking a look at file drawers. There are several ways to accomplish this task. The most popular way is to use a rack system. Just make sure you leave enough room for it to slid in there. Rockler has a slip on system, where is very cool and easy too. With it being plastic I bet the hanging file fo...

Building a new workbench #5: Half-lapping the side rails

1995 days ago by Loogie | 3 comments »

Last night I got to put in a few hours on the bench project. I’ve been working on half-lapping the side rails. First marked out the dovetails then I cut them on the band saw. The upper stretcher is a full half-lapped dovetail and the bottom rails has a half-lapped dovetail only on the bottom side. The top side gets a wedge pin to complete the dovetail. After I had the dovetails cut I cut the shoulders with a hand saw then I headed over to the table saw where I used my dado head t...

Death of a Dado Set

818 days ago by PASs | 13 comments »

Well, at least it wasn’t me that bought it this time.I made a gavel and striker on commission from some of the Indian Dontknow I use for a lot of my projects (post on that to follow).I had emailed the customer to let them know they could pick it up.I told the wife they would come over the weekend and she said “You should make a case for it.” I told her that would be more cost, and I haven’t done a case before so it would take about, oh, a year for me to get it figured ...
