My first chest of drawers (small)

04-04-2008 04:37 AM by Jimthecarver | 11 comments »

I built this small chest of drawers from scrap wood that was just laying around the shop. It started with a phone call from my Dad. He had explained that he needed a small chest with 3 drawers to fit between the beds in his fifth wheel trailor. The measurements of 14.5” X 18” X 27” was a tight fit so I decided to use the space wisely and not have an overhang on the top. I decided to use the Herring bone pattern on the top to use up a few small scrap pieces of Oak and Maple,(...

New Tools from the Woodworking Show

03-26-2008 03:20 AM by Greg3G | 18 comments »

Yeah, I know, I’m two weeks late in getting this done, but hey, Life sometimes gets busy. (of course that’s not the real reason, I’ve just been a bit lazy.) I made myself a promise that I would get a new table saw this year. My craftsman contractors saw was at the limit of what I wanted it to do. It would do fine on regular ¾” stock but started to give me fits when I went to cut thicker stock. So Long Story short, (I know, too late) I offered to sell the saw to my brother, and with o...

Holier than thou, or the meek shall inherit the wood? #2: Days 2 and 3.

03-24-2008 04:14 AM by Bill Butler | 5 comments »

My shoptime allowance is spotty at best, however a couple of solid days in the last few weeks has allowed me the time to finish milling up all of the wood for my bookcase. Up until recently I hadn’t really had a design in mind for the first prototype of the bookcase to rise from the wood of the old church pew. It is now starting to take shape. It will have 4 shelves, 2 fixed and 2 adjustable. The shelves and the risers are milled to 11/16”. The planned finished dimensions of th...

Operation Holtzapffel #5: Yup, that's sharp...

03-13-2008 03:28 AM by Damian Penney | 11 comments »

So I got my jointer blades back from the sharpener, Standard Saw Works, and they did a great job. It’s a cool store too and one of the storefront window displays is full of old wooden planes (I didn’t get a pic) Once I got the blades back to the workshop I set about reinstalling them. My usual method is to use my dial indicator and twiddle with them for hours on end getting them just right but this time I tried a new approach which worked really well. After I’d dropped...

Operation Holtzapffel #4: Time for a trip to the sharpener

03-09-2008 02:28 AM by Damian Penney | 9 comments »

So this afternoon I tried to shimmy my blades around a bit so that the notches in my jointer blades would offset one another. Here is a pic of the knives in question. Well the results were less than satisfactory (this was taken in raking sunlight) So I’m going to head to Standard Saw Works in Oakland to get them sharpened on Monday. I’ve heard people asking for their jointer blades to be back beveled, can any LJers shed a little light on this?

Phenolic Table Saw Inserts Question

02-24-2008 12:22 AM by John Gray | 6 comments »

I purchased 2 Phenolic table saw inserts from Rockler, part #26648, and they are too thick for my Ridgid TS3650 so I need to machine them down. Has anyone had experience running this material through a planer or joiner? I’d hate to ruin a set of blades just to cut these.Thanks in advance,John
