Yellow Box Burl Coffee Table #2: Leg

02-06-2016 04:23 AM by icemanhank | 0 comments »

Hi all Here are a couple of pics of the leg for my table. As said before it is Sequoia, I have cut the piece in half and rejoined on a slight angle buy butting the sides together and making splines from a piece of Mountain Ash for a littlit bit of contrast. It was a bit of a pain to glue up as the joints were quite tight and clamping the edges meant the joint opened up, hence the need to clamp the ends to the bench and juggle the pressure of the clamps to get everything a nice fit.

Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.

Cocobolo and Leopardwood Table : Process pics. #2: Apron Panels and a Start to the Legs

02-01-2016 04:12 PM by jeth | 5 comments »

Hello all, things have been deathly quiet on the first installment of this blog, which I started due to interest on the project I posted here. Having started, I should go on, so in this post I’ll show how the remaining veneered panels for the table aprons and the legs came together. Here is the substrate for one of the small side apron panels being planed up, with the thick re-sawn veneer that would be stuck to it. The substrate is a piece of Primavera and I did not back it with a ...

Table saw blade hard to go down????

01-27-2016 02:30 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 4 comments »

I have a General 50-200r model table saw. Lowering the blade is a chore becuase it feels like its binding. I’ve squirt some liquid wrench & WD40 on the worm drive screws & worked it up & down. It’s gotten better but there is still an issue. Wondering if anyone else is having this issue & what’s a good lubricant to use on these gears as well? Also what would be a good cleaner to clean the gears with as well? Thanks all.

Dovetails by hand #1: First hand cut dovetail!

01-26-2016 01:43 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

I was determined to lean to cut dovetails last year so I asked Santa for a few tools to get it done. I was really good last year so he brought me a dovetail marking gauge, a marking knife, and a dovetail saw all from Veritas. I’ve been pretty busy so far this month so I made my first try two weeks ago after I was done with my shop lighting project. A rookie mistake here….. So today I tried it again and this time I started by spending an hour or so over two days j...

I finally started my dedicated mitre saw station and as you can see it’s basically going to be 2 36” wide cabinets with drawers and 2 cabinet doors to each unit .. In the middle I’m going to put a shelf and frame to support the mitre saw and also make it flush to the top of the cabinets so I cut my 8’ lumber . The cabinets are made out of furniture grade poplar and its dimensions are 36” wide 40” tall and 24” deep.. I planing...

Wood Trip!! #2: Getting the Shop ready

01-23-2016 04:17 PM by Phil | 2 comments »

Now that I have all of my lumber to start my projects, I need to get my garage in order and put together the shop in the best possible layout. But the first order of business is getting my vintage craftsman jointer in working condition. Oh as a heads up I very rarely and I do mean rarely buy anything tools new. Just a waste of money that can be spent on wood and more tools, but I digress. I have a Craftsman/King Sealey 101.03582 6” jointer with a fixed infeed table and adjustable outfee...
