RESAWING #1: SAVING MYSELF FIFTY BUCKS PLUS

1724 days ago by threehands | 4 comments »

I’VE BEEN RESAWING FOR SOME TIME NOW WITHIN THE LIMITS OF MY SAW. I HAVE A JET 14” BANDSAW. I WAS ORIGINALLY LIMITED TO ITS STANDARD HEIGHT MEANING I COULD ONLY RESAW A BOARD WHICH WAS AT MAX SIX INCHES HIGH. THIS WAS VERY TIME CONSUMING WHEN TRYING TO GET A BOARD SAY 15” WIDE BUT 1/2” THICK. MOST OF THE STOCK I USE IS AT LEAST 1” THICK. I WAS TIRED OF WASTING THE OTHER 1/2” OF WOOD BY PLANING IT OFF TO GET THE THICKNESS I WANTED. I COULD RESAW IT THINN...

Prior to starting the bench I checked out the www. to see what kind of videos...

1725 days ago by kosta | 0 comments »

Yo whats up everybody in this video I get all the shelves to the right width by planning them down. I had to make sure that the designs on the tops of the sides were straight because they were rough cut at the scroll saw. It tookbe a while to sand all the parts but I finished them off with 220 grit. www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com

WHAT'S UP? "While I'm out in my Shop". #13: Using steel rebar for a lumber rack, and Expanding my shop.

1728 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 15 comments »

I’ve been way to crowded in my shop, especially since I went from a radial arm saw to a table saw. A radial arm saw works fine in a narrow shop, because it’s against the wall Plus adding a thickness planer. I haven’t use the automobile side of my garage for years now. About all its been used for is to accumulate things.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is a rough sketch of my floor plan. I plan to keep the partition down the cent...

Floating main table (520)

1730 days ago by reible | 6 comments »

While this exercise was conducted on a 520 system it should also work with any of the shopsmith systems that make use of the connecting tube system. This experiment is to see how a main table would work as a floating main table. What is a floating main table you ask? In its simplest terms it is a main table with the trunnions and below removed. What advantages might that offer? Well I assume that is why you are reading this so lets get started with the project. I have been thinking ...

Search for Interesting Cut-Offs

1731 days ago by dustynewt | 4 comments »

I primarily make small woodstuffs (my name keychains being the most popular) and I feel really guilty buying a large board of some beautiful exotic or domestic hardwood and then hacking it up into pieces that I can use. I feel that the board should go into a fine piece of furniture. I then had an idea to email a request to internet lumber dealers for shorts and cut-offs that might otherwise be tossed into a landfill. I also hoped to add to my selection of woods for my customers with some i...

Any interest in a LJ's Texas Barbecue / GTG?

1732 days ago by dbhost | 20 comments »

It has been mentioned by at least one other LJ that since there seem to be more than a few of us here in Texas, particularly coastal Texas, that a Texas LJs get together might be a good idea. And since I am sure it is more than just me that has lots of scrap hardwood, partcularly pecan and mesquite bits and pieces, that maybe we can do a good old fashioned Texas BBQ… LOML and I are looking for an excuse to head out somewhere like Lake Texana anyway…. I make a mean Brisket, and ...
