Hi again, It’s been a while as I have been away but here is my progress on the table. I have levelled the tabletop using a large belt sander and a straight edge, quite a time consuming job but I think the end result was worth the time. Then I hit it with an orbital sander using a few different grades of paper. Here is a pic after the first coat of Weatherfast Polyclear boat varnish, I decided not to fill the many holes as I want it to look as natural as possible. The varnis...
Now for the rest of the photos of the work performed so far on my introductory woodworking project. After cutting all the pieces to size, the next step was to mortise the legs. We used a router table with a couple stop-blocks set to control the length of the mortises. (If you look closely, you can see that the stop-blocks use our instructor’s patented Micro-Adjustable Depth Control System™ – he sells them for $30/set. What a deal!) Here are the legs after mortising. In...

!http://(Mortise 2)!I was at a local joinery the other day so I decided to pick up so lumber for the lamp table project I was thinking of doing. I picked up some 2×2 american white oak. I went home that day and cut the oak down to 4 18inch lenghts for the legs. I marked the mortises out using a mortise gauge and decided to route the mortises out as i have never tried this method before. ( I’m a hand tool guy ) For this I though I’d go out ant treat my self to a new router bi...
hey everybody im looking for ideas for a precise, true router fence and i would like to use some incra parts like rails and tracks, im looking for some thing of quality for around many 150 give or take a little, i plan on using it for precise applications like spline joints and dovetails, and any good router bit suggestions, thanks!!!
In this video I show how I mortise and tenon the legs and aprons. The first step is to evaluate or critiquing the pieces, I feel each piece on it”s own has positive and negative aspects that need to be addressed. Once evaluated the pieces can be shown for the best possible presentation of the project. If you are just starting out in woodworking it is a good idea to keep tract of your decisions to see how they affected the overall project. Evaluating and critiquing is a valuable ski...
Shopsmith Jointer A few months ago I decided to change my Garage Setup due to space constrains and because IWas very interested in trying the Shopsmith At a decent price I got a Mark V with Band Saw and Jointer. The Table Saw Blade was still in a working ShapeBut a lot of corrosion on the Bed of the Jointer I try it once but the fence had an issue…missing parts or broken damage so I decided n to use itAnd due to my priorities the use of the jointer was not the #1 Im working in th...
Ok a couple of busy days, probably gonna take a day off today to be with the family. Here is one side of the top brace scribed for routing the curved side of the lap joint. and here it is after routing, the edge was done in four very careful passes with a 1/8th bit and then the rest was hogged out with a 3/4 straight bit after this pic. After doing six of these my shoulders were pretty tight. Then I took to it with chisel and file and very slowly snuck up on a nice tight fit....

I am helping a neighbor build a milling table from 8/4 hickory. This table is for milling grain to brew beer. I will keep posting images as we progress.
