Wow, so much can change in just 24 hours. (yeah, i’m going to pretend I wrote this last night hehehe) So, yesterday, I was slaving over a hot sheet of sand paper trying to lap the plastic parts of the fence on my newly gifted router table, in hopes of being able to use it as a mini jointer to make at least some little flat boards… Well, today, I spent a little time looking at Craig’s list for Charlotte NC, and found an add for “Millwork tool” including a ...
In this episode I go over the installation of the drawer slides. It is very important to remember that the width of you drawer box is the key to a successful slide installation.
I found this site while perusing a survival site. There is some good ancient information here. Enjoy! http://journeytoforever.org/farm_library/device/devices2.html
Sunday, I saw a listing in Craigs List for a 6” jointer for $100. I thought why not take a look and sent a reply. I got a response back in short order stating that he had 2 others in line in front of me to take a look and if they fell through, he’d give me the next crack. I figured it was gone and I’d have to resume my patient vigil. Well, I was surprised and today I brought it home. It has new blades and a new drive belt. The bed and fench are free of rust but looks like...
As featured in the Let’s Build series... Many of woodworkers receive woodworking magazine subscriptions in the mail each month and as the time goes by these magazines accumulate. These magazines are a great source for reference and also inspiration so it is nice to have them protected and organized so that we can easily access the information. Now, a woodworker can simply purchase a magazine case from the publisher or from a local discount store and be done with it. However, since...
I found a stuff for Guys garage sale and bought a Sears Shaper Model No. 103.23920 on a wobbly steel standwith a 1 hp, 11.4 amp motor (I was able to print out an operating manual from Old woodworking tools) and an old Delta 6” jointer Model 2-961 mounted on knocked together wood base, it is similar to Delta Model 37-205that was manufactured circa 1945 except for the lack of a base. I have not been able to locate a manual forthis so will contact the closest Service Center in Spokane on ...

I...

Shop-built Air Cleaner I tend to do my woodworking once the sun goes down and it cools off, so to keep from waking the neighbors up I usually do it with the garage door closed. This was pretty brutal on my lungs even with a dust collector so I built myself a shop air cleaner. It’s built around a 1 micron bag filter and 2” pre filter from an actual commercial shop air cleaner (about $45), one sheet of 3/4 ply. The blower motor is a 12” squirrel cage blower that moves ...
I know this is a little out of order but I needed to get started on these desks ahead of the garbage can containers. What is great about these desks is that we will be using different kinds of joinery. We’ll be laminating the legs, pocket hole joinery for the aprons and top. Plus there will be some edge banding happening too. You will also see how I build my drawer boxes and the material that I use for this in future episodes. Don’t forget to sign up for Huck’s (hucksdi...
