Design Concepts #1: Custom Stationary Tool Cabinet

1714 days ago by Unskilled | 0 comments »

I was tempted for a long time to create a tool cabinet like I’ve seen in many books and magazines (Shopnotes’ ‘Heirloom Toolbox’ comes to mind), but wasn’t prepares for such a daunting task immediately since I am a new woodworker. I then decided that I really like my Snap-On knockoff tool cabinet, so I have considered an alternate design to hold a very specific set of tools. So specific in fact, that I plan on french-fitting every tool in every drawer aside fro...

Restoring an old 6" jointer - Delta Milwaukee 37-207 #1: Restoring an old jointer for the shop

1725 days ago by Bob #2 | 11 comments »

A couple of weeks ago I rescued a an old 6” Delta/Milwaukee jointer from a Garage sale. ( Circa 1940’s)The fellow I bought it from was mostly into old cars and had no use for this iron and it sat rusting in his way. We made a decent deal and I lugged it homeward.The surfaces of the in and out feed table were rusted and pitted and I did think about having them re honed at a machine shop but first I felt it better to run it to see what else was wrong.About and hour with some rust re...

Carpenter's Tool Box for soon-to-be two year-old boy

1729 days ago by NBeener | 12 comments »

My wife’s grandson is somehow about to turn two. Time to turn him on to tools, huh? That’s the primary reason I’ve been taking a whack at dovetail joints. The tool box is in dry fit, right now. In the next day or two, I’ll move to glue-up. The cuts in the ends of the handle are for wedge/shims to hold the handle in place. The pics: ....Current plan is to fill it with something like this….. I did something wrong with the plywood bottom. The ...

Rough Sawn Walnut #4: Flatten Boards without a Jointer

1736 days ago by ChunkyC | 3 comments »

The idea came from FWW I got a chance to play around with getting the angles setup for the adjustment wedges tonight. I made a fixture to cut the angle in some scrap. I didn’t pay real close attention to detail on the fixture. I figure it’s a one of a kind item and probably will hit the compost pile in the spring. I don’t particularly like the bungee cord idea so I’m going to use a 1/4-20 bolt to keep the adjuster in place. Here’s the concept:I’ll...

How to find great figure wood other than Burl

1740 days ago by OregonBurls | 8 comments »

This is in addition to the burl blog I put on a week ago. Thank you for all the reads.This is to the best of my knowledge and I am still learning.I have found crazy figure in tree crotches. A tree crotch is where two branches come together. It is usually the piece that fire wood people don’t want because it doesn’t slit. That is because the crotch is the hardest part of the tree and the grain in going in different directions. It’s where you get what is called “feather”. “Haring bone, r...

20 Steps to a Checker Board... a beginners guide

1748 days ago by Demowen | 7 comments »

I am currently finishing an education class so that I can teach Technology Education (shop class). My last assignment was to create a project that checks for the understanding of the previous lessons. I chose to do my lessons on shop tool safety and usage so it only fits to do a project to show off those new safety skills. I know you all are experts here ;) so I thought you might enjoy picking this apart! I created a simple project that uses the majority of common shop power tools. Her...

Getting started

1748 days ago by Tim Dahn | 5 comments »

I have been searching around the internet for a wall clock that I like, I have been able to find clocks that have some design features I like but not one that reached out and grabbed me. This one from Klockit came the closest, I don’t care for the choice of wood or the finish but I can change these things. There aren’t any plans as the clock is only available in kit form. The Klockit website shows a finished Size: 13 1/4”H x 13 1/2”W x 5 1/2”D, I’m thinking these dime...

How to find and harvest legal burls!

1751 days ago by OregonBurls | 37 comments »

Hey everyone, It was suggested that I start a discussion on how to find and harvest burls. Please give your input also. I don’t deal with straight grain that often. I cut and sell burls for a living so here is what I know. It is illegal to harvest a burl without permission. of course if it is on your own property you can give yourself permission. What I do is put an ad on Craig’s list saying I want your burls. Most people don’t know what burls are. So you don’t get that many calls....

I have a craftsman contracter series jointer (model number 113.232211). there is a small part that moves the in feed table with the knob called a linkage assembly the part that connects to the screw was cast poorly and it disintegrated. so now i have a choice of either buying another jointer or trying to find the part. I checked sears official parts site and they no longer make the part or have a replacement that will work the same purpose. If I haven’t found a part for it by the new ye...
