The sides of the knife blocks consist of 5 pieces of bookmatched walnut, maple and cherry 3/8” thick and 13 1/2” long which was determined by the length of the longest knife blade .I sized the 4/4” rough lumber to pieces that are 5 1/4” wide x 15” long and jointed one edge and one face and set the bandsaw up for resawing.Once all of the resawing is done,a few trips through the planer gets everything to 3/8.” Both block sides consists of 2 walnut, 2 maple ...
Even though this project has been complete for sometime, I did film the progress of it so I figured some of your guys may enjoy the process. On a side note, since this was a client build, I decided to not talk but just filmed the clips. I found this to save me a ton of time instead of if I had talked my way through it. I hope you guys still enjoy it though.
The marking on the blade says FULTON TOOL CO WARRANTED and is just over 2 1/2 inches wide. The plane its self is 26”x 3 1/4”. Would be great if some one could give me some info and direct me to get more info on it. Thanks for Looking. some additional picts
I Spent the day building the walls for the shop. Each 4 foot panel is built separately so if I ever have to take it down, the panels can go with me. The lower panel beneath the open window can come out with a few screws if I need to forklift anything in or out of the shop. I need to get all the rest of my tools to the shop and get everything set up and finalized, but I’m happy with the progress made!
In this episode I give you a tour around my garage shop. Here is the link to the shop bench series.
HeatWell I haven’t written an update because it’s been too hot in my garage in So. Ca. I have a detached, 1938, garage without air condition. The heat never bothered me but as I get older it’s been getting to me. ProblemsAnother problem I’m having is with the top of the TV stand. I mentioned before that I purchased 14’ of 6/4 African mahogany rough wood. I cut the wood into 3 pieces. (4’, 4’, and 6’) Because it’s been about 100 degrees in my garage, I decided to take it to my local lumb...
Hey LJ! So a few weeks back I posted some mid-project photoes of how my bandsaw build was going and although it is not entirley finished and still needs little extras like a coat of paint, a stand and a fence I can now show you the fully working and (built bandsaw). Heres a quick video showing the build process… Enjoy! Its been a great project and I hope to soon post another video showing it in all of it glory.
In my never ending quest to make 250 end grain cutting boards, I find myself milling quite a bit of stock. Attempting to keep some sort of order in the manufacturing process. I have cut most the boards down to 1”- 3” strips anywhere from 2’-4’ long. I then glue like strips together. So far I have 6 of laminated boards. Later on, once I laminated all of my stock, I will begin the crosscutting and re-laminating process. Then all the boards will take a dip in Walnut oi...
This is the last post required to complete the build and make ready for applying the finish of my choice to get this one in the books. Once all the drawer fronts have been joined to the sides, and those cut to rough length, I had to work on adding backs to the drawers as well as bottoms. All drawer backs were set into simple dados that were cut on the table saw. For the Big Drawer as well as the Big Pair of drawers, the drawer bottom consists of a single piece of repurposed hardboa...
Hello everyone, i’m really hoping someone can shed some light on this problem for me. I have an older craftsman Jointer/Planer that is in great working condition, however it has one major problem. Even though the infeed and outfeed tables are parallel when i push a board through it raises up off the outfeed table. Hopefully the pictures below will help…... To me the table look very parallel weather the depth is set to 1/8” or zero. Now time to put a board...
