Learning the hard way (revisited)

11-08-2010 02:41 AM by nobuckle | 3 comments »

I haven’t done much today. The only thing I did was to reglue the piece I cut off yesterday back on to the router table top. About 3:00 AM EST I realized that I cut off to much and didn’t leave enough material for the mitre guage slot. It didn’t turn out to bad but it irritates me that I didn’t think of this before I made the cut. Oh well. What’s more is that I stained my table saw surface with glue that bled though the news papaer that I had under my glue u...

What a difference a little colour makes...

11-07-2010 07:40 AM by degoose | 36 comments »

Well, as you know, of late, I have been busying myself with boxes… Please do not worry … I am still making cutting boards and Lazy Larrys…. I will post when finished… I am also making some chess boards but that is a subject of another blog… in this particular blog I would like to speak about how a different colour can change a project… not the colour of the wood or stain… but the lining… I have had a lot of comments about the Hot Pink felt of th...

So far so good

11-07-2010 03:09 AM by nobuckle | 0 comments »

Had a pretty good day today. I finally decided to stop for the day, seeing that i’ve been up since 5:30 AM EST. I was able to obtain the angle aluminum that is required from a friend of mine. It’s good to have friends that are willing to donate to your cause. On the way back from my friends house I stopped by my local Woodcraft store to pick up the t-track for the mitre slot and was pleasantly surprised to find Scott Phillips from the American Woodshop there. He was there to ...

Workshop #14: A quick jig

11-07-2010 12:32 AM by clieb91 | 5 comments »

Did not think this quickie really qualified as a project, but decided to at least do this blog about it. I have been experimenting a lot lately with various toys and games. Just simple stuff got a number of older books with simple plans and ideas. Recently I made this truck.. Still needs a little work around the edges, but I like the way it turned out in general. The hole saw concept of making the wheels however was not appealing to me (may just be my hole saw), So I was thinking about...

Making Progress ( I think!)

11-06-2010 05:14 PM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

I was up before dawn this morning. 5:30 AM EST is too early in the morning to wake up with an unfinished project on your mind. You’ve probably been there too. Anyway, I got out to the shop about 7:30 or so and decided to finish attaching my left-hand table saw extension to the right side of the saw. The cast iron extension did not have any mounting holes drilled into on the left side so I had to take some time to lay them out and drill them. I wasn’t able to use my drill pres...

Router table top for my table saw

11-06-2010 12:08 AM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

This picture shows a possible solution to attaching my router table top to my table saw. The aluminum rail attaches to the saw and the top attaches to the rail. I can’t take credit for the idea, that goes to LJ joeE. Thanks joeE.

Working out the design.

11-06-2010 12:01 AM by nobuckle | 0 comments »

First I’d like to thank all those who have provided insight into how I might be able to attach my router table top to my table saw. The suggestions made have given me a number of ideas. Who knows, it may come to the point where I incorporate all the ideas in one way or another. At any rate, I really appreciate it. I created a 3d model of a suggested design and then posted it as a pic into a message in order to see if I had the correct understanding of the suggestion. I suppose I co...

Learning the hard way!

11-05-2010 12:33 AM by nobuckle | 10 comments »

Today I started working on a router table idea that I came up with. I currently have a router table (more like a cabinet really) but it takes up to much room in my shop. If you’ve read my profile you know that I only have 99 sq. ft. of main shop space, so maximizing space is a constant challenge. I’ve decided to move the left-hand table saw extension of my table saw to the right side and replace it with some material that could be used for a router table. The material I select...

It's getting to be that time of year.

The holiday season is almost upon us and just about everyone’s broke and scratching around figuring what little gift that a woodworker would use and enjoy, but will be very reasonable to buy.My middle name must be tight a** because I always find great deals and balk at “wish” prices given out by vendors – They seem to go way beyond my threshold of pain. Here is a couple of items I have got and use more than I thought I ever would – and they are inexpensive. ...
