Well, the planer was leaving tracks on one part of the blade. Obviously a chip in the knives at that point. So, with the camera rolling, I decided I would give the machine a bit of a clean up. It is a Makita 2012 planer, a little 12” lunchbox planer that I got from my father in law. So, the price was right. It is a bit odd in that the table moves up and down and the motor stays fixed in place. That makes in feed and out feed tables just about impossible. But, it is a good little ...
Hi fellow LJs. I must say that in my first couple of months here, I have learned a lot. This place is a wealth of knowledge and good ideas, and maybe some not too good ideas. But hey, we are all adults here, and we share our triumphs and defeats, good ideas and bad(if there really is such a thing), as well as good deals, trade secrets, and all other things woodworking. So I found a steal of a deal on the hardwood rough sawn lumber over the weekend. My excitement poured over on the insid...

Good evening fellow lumber jocks,this is my first blog. i have posted a few projects and have looked at almost every single project on here (there is a lot) just to get some inspiration/ideas of what i could make. I think about 3 years ago now i stumbled upon a video posted by the Wood Whisperer, i was hooked at that point and wanted to buy every tool i could think of right off the bat (just ask my wife :)). In these last 3 years i have learnt alot more than i thought i could (learn from your...

I needed a track saw to cut a slab to make a coffee table. So I made one. This is how I did mine. By using the table saw to cut a dado in the base, the track is as accurate as a table saw. View on YouTube

Check out my latest video on making a time tracking application in excel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKErw2dmSVA&list=PLsajY4bbxhrBiASUneFk6SGICSCEeDQ_w&index=1In this video, I will show you how you can make a restore down icon and place it on the application’s toolbar.

Boy and Girls, This blog is to supplement a project I penned earlier, regarding Lathe disk sander with micro adjustment. Please click on the link to read about the micro adjustment feature of the brains behind the underlying mechanism. Just a quick memory twister…. This table was designed using Sketchup and here is a link to it for anyone interested. Again I have not provided measurement as everything depends on the person undertaking the build and their respective timber and hardw...
This mallet was fun to build! It was 3 completely different processes to make each part of it. This was also my first time working with plastic (LDPE) as a medium. I have absolutely no practical use for this thing… I just thought about it one day and it sounded like fun to make! View on YouTube
