Delta DJ20 Jointer Restoraton #2: Making Progress

02-27-2016 05:32 AM by Julian | 4 comments »

I finished the metal base cabinet today. The original color is not available so I just painted it silver. The jointer doesn’t have to look like the original. It just needs to work. The tables took about 2 hours to clean. I applied the toilet cleaner several times to eat away the rust. Then I used a palm sander with 180, 220, & 320 grits. The out-feed table has more pitting than the in-feed. The pitting does not show up in the photo. The tables just need to be flat and som...

Delta DJ20 Jointer Restoraton #1: Getting Started on the Jointer

02-26-2016 04:59 AM by Julian | 4 comments »

I recently purchased an 8” jointer on Craigslist. I wanted more capacity than my 6” jointer. It only cost $200 but needs some work. Motor runs smooth but it has a lot of rust. The owner stored it outside for some time. At least he covered it with a tarp. I started with the base. Removed the bottom, black section, cleaned it, primed and painted. Then made a mobile base. Used a Rockler mobile base and purchased some 1 1/2” square steel tubing. Drilled the need...

Curved Front End Table #2: Curved Veneered Front Doors

02-23-2016 11:01 PM by Guy Dunlap | 6 comments »

Now that the carcass for the tables are just about complete, I set out to build the doors. First, I re-saw some cherry to 1/32” for the layers of the panel. I make a form and then using bendable plywood and the veneer, they go into the vacuum bag to make the curved doors. Then a skin of quilted cherry veneer goes on the front and back of the doors. This was a lot of fun, and I hope I don’t bore you by showing the whole process. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! ...

Home Built 13" Jointer #7: Tables - Part 1

02-22-2016 03:44 AM by Ger21 | 1 comment »

Got a little bit done this weekend. It’s getting late, so I’ll make it quick. Each table started as 3 layers of 1/2” (12mm) baltic birch, laminated with epoxy in my vacuum frame press. I laminate them face down so that the top face would be flattest.Once I pulled them from the press, I noticed that there were some thickness variations in the plywood that left the backside less than flat. So, I put them on the CNC and machined about 1/32” off the back side to ...

Curved Front End Table #1: Case Construction

02-14-2016 11:27 PM by Guy Dunlap | 13 comments »

This is the start of a build for an end table. It will have curved front doors, a curved drawer, and the doors and drawer will have a book matched veneer. In this video, I start by pattern routing the front pieces, and then work on the case construction and the solid cherry book matched side panels. The case is put together with all mortise and tenon joinery, and even a few blind dovetails. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’ve got going on in...

Oak Storage Bench #2: Stock Preparation

02-02-2016 09:44 PM by ThomasLightle | 2 comments »

I prefer getting my wood in the rough for two reasons: The first reason is the cost. Rough lumber is incredibly cheaper than 4-side finished wood. The other reason is flexibility. I am able to “find” the best part of the board in the rough lumber whereas, if your wood is pre-finished, you are stuck with what you get.So here is my workflow: LayoutRough lengthRough WidthJoint 1 face and 1 edgeFinal width + 1/16” Joint to final widthPlane to final thicknessFinal lengthLet me...
