Garage Sale Finds

247 days ago by SirFatty | 8 comments »

My wife is a member of the Facebook group that’s a online garage sale for our community (just about all towns have one, check it out). Last weekend she found three tools and asked if I was interested. A Makita thickness planer, Delta benchtop jointer and a Ryobi detail biscuit jointer. After some negotiations, I purchased all three for $100. Now the jointer and planer were used by a finish carpenter that is going through hard times, both have seen some hard use. But both work gr...

Delta DJ-20 8" Jointer

273 days ago by pintodeluxe | 10 comments »

Well, it was time to get a larger jointer so I started comparing the 8” parallelogram models. The Grizzly 490, Shopfox W1741, and Delta DJ-20 were all in the running. I was planning on ordering the Grizzly, then came across a little-used Delta. The price was right and everything was in great shape, so I brought home the Delta. Moving the Beast:Compared to my tablesaw with cast iron top, this jointer was easy to transport. The fellow selling the jointer offered to load it onto my ...

274 days ago by Drew - Rock-n H Woodshop | 9 comments »

Have you ever needed to joint on your table saw? I know I have in the past and I had a fence made to do it. However, b/c of my fence upgrade I have not been able to do so, until now. In this episode, I show you how to build your own jointer fence fixture that will allow you to use your saw blade like jointer knives. If you have scraps of ply that you want to make bigger without the hassle of going to the lumber store to get a new sheet, this makes nice work of cleaning up joints on not ju...

Monogram End Grain Cutting Board #1: Getting Started

277 days ago by Gene47 | 3 comments »

Greetings & Salutations, I just got the news a little while back that my youngest nephew is getting marriedthis December. I am looking forward to that as it will be a good excuse to go toFlorida for some good times with some of the family. I wanted to come up with a different kind of gift but also wanted something thatI would not have to carry in my pickup. Being kind of practical since the P/U gets18 mpg and my Prius gets 51 mpg that would take a big dent out of the travel budget. ...

Murphy Bed #1: Building a Murphy Bed from scratch

279 days ago by Jim Jakosh | 16 comments »

We need a Murphy bed next winter in Arizona and I did not want to buy the hardware. That takes all the fun out of designing it yourself and costs $360. So I looked at a lot of bed designs and settled on one that used HD pivots, gas springs for counterbalance and a swing out leg support rather than the fold down kind.The parameters were a twin mattress (7×39 x 75), had to flip long ways and enough room inside for making the bed. Then I had to decide on the pivot points, the foot pivot ce...
