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...
I’ve been wanting to build a bench for a long time now. My brother bought me a LV large vise quite awhile ago which had been the major money stumbling block at the time. Well life happens and I never built the bench. I have been using an old oak table that I had scrounged from somewhere, here it is: So today being “Louis Reil Day”...an excuse for the government to give us a day off in February… I figured I’d catch up on some projects that have been sittin...
I have a cnc router and have used it heavily in my shop because it is an extremely useful tool. However, it is not really the quickest and easiest tool to use. To make a simple cut, I have to go through as many as 3 programs, make a few calculations, set up the workholding, etc, etc. It was getting old for simple work. I was just about ready to go out and buy a sawstop and a router table, but then I thought, why not make a simple program that will make the router into a very easy tool to ...

"adirondack chair making" #1: my first adirondack chair was made in 1995, now two decades later, I am still at it
when I was a freshman in high school (1995), I won the end of the year award for woodshop when I produced an Adirondack Chair. Now 2014, I am still at it. I only get better and better at them. Now I am giving them some Texas, southwestern, rustic flare with a cut-out the shape of the state. I now make Adirondack chairs on a weekly basis mostly for therapy. But I sell them too. In post(s) to follow I will explain more about Adirondack chair making.
Alright, the legs were glued up in part one. Since then I milled them to final dimensions by jointing on two sides, then running them through the table saw just oversized. The legs were then ran through the planer to get the final size I was looking for. Using the table saw to get the bulk of the waste off reduced the amount of shavings from the planer that had to go through the dust collector. The next step was to create the lower side stretchers. The rough lumber was milled 1 ¾”...
I did not have time to post progress yesterday, but today I finished the humidor test build. My wife has absconded with it to hold her art supplies in, so it will not be getting a hygrometer. Before Hinges and before gluing the liner in Remaining pics show the completed project Top Bottom
The Sides are S4S Red Oak and the Lid is S4S White Oak with a little character. The lid is a floating panel which I glued up with the box sides and then I cut the lid on the table saw. The bottom is pretty simple, and is made of 1/4 inch oak ply with upholstery leather. Next part is the tray for holding standard sized paper.
