Building Dave's Bar Clamp #7: Finishing up

09-28-2016 12:26 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

[Legebla ankaĆ­ en Esperanto] [Above] After the movable stop is on the bar, insert a piece of 1/4 in. dowel into the hole at the end of the bar. This keeps the head from sliding off. The dowel can be glued in, but if it is snug, you may want to leave it be. If left removable, the possibility is open to join two clamps together to make a longer one.

Hello colleagues, So, I used my pusher for some time and it worked fine in 95% of the cases and then I decided to match all of the features of the Grr-ripper Deluxe that sells for about $120…:) In this video I’m adding: a 1/8” leg from plexiglass, stabilizing plate/balance support, routing spacer and a “heel” for resawing and veneer cuts to match all Grr-ripper Deluxe model’s capabilities.

Husqvarna 394 XP Rebuild!

09-07-2016 02:29 AM by woodshopmike | 3 comments »

Hey y’all, it’s been awhile since posting anything here due to moving states and having the shop packed up for about 6 months. The shop is still mostly packed, but I’m finally starting to get WSM headquarters back up and running!

Hopefully there’s something here that some of y’all will fin...

Refinishing a Dresser

06-13-2016 10:53 PM by ShaunMeighan | 2 comments »

View on YouTube Hello everyone! As I have declared myself the designated woodworker in my household, I am getting all sorts of home improvement jobs. Today, my parents asked me to refinish the tops of their bedside dressers. I thought I would talk through what I do to refinish things, and maybe you guys could learn something and/or offer some tips! While the main body of the dressers is generally alright, the top surfaces are in rough shape. Glasses of water and cups of coffee...
