Managed to get all four sections of the top glued up. A bit laborious, but pretty straightforward. Decided to take a suggestion and use some jatoba for contrast. The plan was to glue up 4 sections of boards. Then I’d flatten each section before gluing the sections together. The rationale was that it would be easier to flatten each section using the powered jointer and planer than it would be the entire top using hand planes. There were two problems with this approach, both of whic...
The last video on building my workbench. http://youtu.be/n0iY1vvdSCM
I used hard maple for the face frames, drawer fronts, doors and drawers.It all started like this I used a track saw to rip a clean edge on every board. That worked great. I also ran them across the jointer at some point during the milling. Looks a lot better after a few passes through the planer And a few passes through the drum sander. Then I cut the face frame pieces. Ready to start building the face frames and rough cut the remaining pieces for the rails and stiles for ...
One of my staples for sale at craft shows is slotted coin displays.They are fairly simple to make and I try to make them in batches so I have inventory without setting up too often to make them.All of them so far have been made from dunnage used to ship steel radio transmission towers from India to the US. Where we would use pine 2×4’s to brace freight this particular company used an assortment of mid/far east woods. From what I can see and surmise it is the off-cuts from the India...

I was going to post this sooner but I strained my back on Friday working on this. I mounted the table saw and motor and tried it out. It sounds good and cuts very well. When I put the top on it was a little difficult getting the blade aligned with the miter slot, but in the end I got it within half a thousandth. The rip fence was much easier to align. Just loosen the two bolts on the top and move where you need it. The micro adjust works great. Since my shop is so small I really needed th...
I’m very fortunate to have a sawyer close by that caters specifically to hobbyists. These are very knowledgable and nice folks. Shameless plug: Hobby Hardwood Alabama Here is a photo of the first batch of rough sawn cherry I chose: I recently reconfigured and upgraded my dust collector http://lumberjocks.com/projects/95715 which worked out great because I jointed and planed most of this wood in preparation for this build. This picture shows how well the thien baffle worked:...
It was amazing I got the base mostly together and without extra parts. I have the rear trunon to assemble still due to the paint was not dry. I used a large box as a paint booth and painted the two base half’s. I got the base together. The rod that moved the table up and down to adjust the blade depth I left it in because I was concerned about getting the gear that is inside located in the correct place in relation to the screw that it moves. Once together you cannot see inside t...
Two years ago i was introduced to high school wood working. I was formerly familiar with the trade and tools as my great uncle and grandfather were both career woodworkers making fine furniture. Ever since i made my first project the dream has been for a roll top , well its been three courses and 250 hours later , i have been all allowed to begin construction on my desk. This blog will be about building that desk. More for me to track my progress than anything but anyones welcome to come lea...
On February 15th I bought a 1945 or about that Delta Milwaukee Table saw and Jointer combo with a Delta 1hp motor on a stand off of Craigs list. After I got it home i needed some info about it and was looking on OWWM site and found a table saw and jointer that looked like what I had Link to sawIt turns out this was the exact saw I had bought down to the green paint on the table saw. It was still in the same garage that the picture was taken in. That was in Lebanon Oregon.I thought it was neat...
