Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #6: Finding shop time in a busy schedule -or- Making slats & cutting pieces

04-09-2010 06:24 AM by sras | 11 comments »

The next step in this project is making the curved slats for the back of the stool. The process is the same as for the curved parts with a couple exceptions. First the pieces for each set of slats are cut from two blocks. These blocks were next to each other when cut from the large stock. Instead of marking with a saw cut as I did last time, I used a permanent marker. By angling one stripe across both blocks, I am able to keep the strips in order. The total number of stripes tells me w...

Don't have a jointer?

04-01-2010 02:37 AM by HighRockWoodworking | 14 comments »

How to get a straight edge on a rough cut board that has irregular sides without a jointer. I don’t have the space in my shop for all of the tools to make everyday task easy. My shop is in my garage and just not enough room for a jointer. For myself it works out most of the time because I plane and joint most of the boards for a project in my families shop up in north Carolina that I visit about once a month. But what do you do if you need a board right now? Well there are a few differe...

Lessons Learned #1: Appeasing the jointer

03-13-2010 01:58 AM by live4ever | 8 comments »

There’s nothing like the sense of accomplishment when you’re able to successfully troubleshoot a problem. I was having some snipe issues with my Ridgid 6” jointer. The last 2” or so of the trailing end was getting gouged. A common issue with jointers, I hear. So I set out to solve the problem. My careful and scientific analysis of the problem (reading the manual and browsing forums) led me to believe the knives were too high relative to the outfeed table. So ...

Small gloat on a craftsman jointer

03-11-2010 03:53 AM by Chase | 13 comments »

A more experienced woodworking friend is pushing me in deeper and showed me how to go from rough to square lumber using a jointer and planer. So after some trolling on craigslist I found one in a town about an hour and a half away. 75 bucks for a 6in craftsman jointer. The manual that came with it has a copy-wright date of 1965, so it is roughly that old. After some work and guidance with the friend that helped further my addiction i was able to clean the table and fence up ...

Craftsman Jointer

03-10-2010 10:29 PM by stuk4x4 | 8 comments »

I made what I feel to be a great buy on Craigslist today. For $25 I purchased a 6 inch jointer. After geting it home and pulling the Model number off it I was able to find out some specifics and even track a parts listing down. It is in OK shape, so I need to clean it up and mount the motor to it. The jointer itself is mounted to a very sturdy cabinet that is also mounted on casters. having it mounted on casters is a huge plus for me as I have limited space and am always moving stuff aro...

Sharpening #1: Sharpening planer knives

03-09-2010 11:03 PM by Daren Nelson | 15 comments »

It’s hard to shoot these by myself, so 2 different angle (2 different knives) This is the machine. A Foley Belsaw model 355 Basically the motor with a grinding wheel rides the track and the knives are clamped to the rail. I have numerous shims to get them set the right distance. The carriage for the motor/grinding wheel also moves to and away from the knife rail. The head obviously pivots to the proper angle of the original grind bevel of the knife. The wheel in the second video t...

Shaker Night Stand #10: Fill my eyes ... with that double vision!

03-08-2010 02:29 AM by NBeener | 27 comments »

So … among my 3,000 eye problems is intermittent double vision. But … I don’t think that’s the problem, here. I seek the expert counsel of the venerated and revered LumberJocks: IS IT just me …. ?? Tenons are better the second time around!! Incidentally, I occasionally do more than just clean my shop :-) Cheers, All!

Neck Thru V Guitar

03-07-2010 03:12 PM by lugnut | 12 comments »

Well, I bit the bullet and purchased some equipment. I got an 8” jointer/planer combo from Jet and a 9” bandsaw from Skil. Probably none the best stuff, but live and learn. My goal here is to develop my woodworking skills to a higher level concentrating on guitar construction. The task at hand is to plane the wings to the same thickness as the neck. The wings are basswood and I’m thinking I should just get them ‘close’ to leave a little room for sanding. W...

Bookshelves #1: raw materials

03-03-2010 08:29 PM by Vick | 6 comments »

I decided to try my hand with 8/4 stock and save a little money by re-sawing all the stock myself. Looking back at it, I guess it was worth the $100 I saved but it was more of a hassle then I thought it was going to be.
