Life as an Amateur Woodworker #76: A Tip When Making Simple Sanding Blocks

04-10-2016 09:49 PM by PhilBello | 14 comments »

Before I get underway, the first tip has to be…It doesn’t matter how careful you are, accidents still happen I started cutting for my sanding blocks, don’t ask what happened, I don’t know, I just know I was aware I was about to have a kickback on the table saw, I was using push blocks, tried to get out of the way, and in doing so, lost one and a bit finger tips!! The tip, is to make sure you keep a tube of Superglue in your First Aid Kit, after washing the woun...

Shop Smith #6: Shop Smith I cut it up some more.

04-08-2016 11:13 PM by htl | 3 comments »

Many would call this a shorty but it’s not short it’s in the tall drill mod and I cut the races with a metal cutting blade on my circular saw to get all the room I could length wise.I had shortened it the other day and it worked great but was still to long and since I now have a 510 there was no need for two full out SS.When it was cut last time I cut 18” off the bottom tubs so today when I got the wild hair to make it a true drill press I just used the 18” tubes to ma...

This was a bundelled mixture of boards and pieces; The main piece for the top of the unit The larger boards I have cut in half and put through the thicknesser to get some lovely bookmatched boards to work with; I have sized four pieces for the legs and marked out the sha...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #73: Scrapwood Challenge!

03-26-2016 04:01 PM by PhilBello | 5 comments »

This morning I started out with this mahogany scrap: From which I had decided to try and make two mallets, why I hadn’t made them before I don’t know, I have tried everywhere to buy one down here, they just don’t sell them, they use their hammer, so I had imported a beech one from Amazon, which including taxes cost me $34 / £24, twice the listed price. I started off by cutting the handles on the bandsaw, as this would determine the size of the holes in the heads. ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #71: Yet Another Router Table

03-03-2016 09:39 PM by PhilBello | 2 comments »

Third time lucky?... time will tell! I decided that although I use my router regularly, I don’t do anything complicated, so a simple router table that can be packed away after use is ideal. I have taken an idea from 'poroldchap' on Youtube, and made a couple of small changes. The whole unit only comprises of a hardwood base, with another piece attached underneath to fit in the vise, and a 3/4” plywood fence/vertical table, I bought a hardwood stair tread 12” x 30&...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #70: Trying to find a good Router Table design

03-01-2016 01:35 AM by PhilBello | 13 comments »

Last July I blogged about building a new router table as an extension wing of my Table Saw, it worked well, but recently the router started to flex, and no amount of adjustment solved the problem, so it had to go, I don’t think it was the design, so much as the quality of the hardware I was able to get down here. After searching the internet for a while, I came across another design, that bolts to your workbench. I used my old Bauker plunger router for this, it wont be long before th...

Amazing Day at the Salvage Store 26FEB2016

02-27-2016 09:40 PM by Dex378 | 1 comment »

So after talking to the owner of the salvage store for a little while he let me go down and pick the basement where all of the items from his estate buy outs go before they put them on the sales floor. I was floored with the amount of stuff that he had down there. Picture a room the size of a football field filled with boxes, trunks, shelves and crates FILLED with amazing stuff. I picked for about 2 hours and found everything we like from vintage, rare Stanley #18 Sweetheart plane, a Stanley ...

Shop stuff #40: ZCI for the Bosch Glide Mitre

02-26-2016 11:31 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Not quite happy with the insert provided by Bosch, I decided to build my own. It is a pretty common thing on most mitre saws and should help give a nicer cut. Of course, I kept the original in case I have to tilt it over on the bevel adjustment. This will handle everything else. I rarely use the bevel anyway. I just stick to mitres and straight cuts for the most part. I am still getting accustomed to Lightworks. It is much more powerful than what I need, but I am getting some of my r...
