1834 days ago by degoose | 48 comments »

Hi guys ,, I had a request to make a tutorial with regards the endgrain Tumbling Block Design.First off,.., You need to decide the size of the blocks…. for this example I used 1” stock… Or something similar.. actually just over .. once dressed. Set the blade of the table saw to 60 degrees.. a bevel box makes this simpleI use the INCRA fence system so it is easy to rip bevels off side of the blade.Once the bevels are ripped measure the length of the bevel and move the f...

Shopmade Jointer #1: The Plan

1063 days ago by Armand | 13 comments »

I have Ryobi Thicknessers AP13AK arriving and I’m planning to build a 12” jointer based on Matthias Wandels' shopmade jointer. Everything will be copied except the infeed table height adjustment mechanism will be different. I’ll be using wedges to adjust the cutting depth. There will be 4 coil springs underneath the infeed table that will be hooked to the main body to keep the table on the downward pull. The four corner holes under each table are for threaded rods that w...

2172 days ago by CraftsmanCollective | 16 comments »

So in my first blog entry I touched on my dust collection progress. I’ve recieved a bit of interest with it so I thought I might share some of what I’ve learned to help others get a head start on thier system or to improve the system they already have. I’ve spent a ton of time researching and testing this stuff and can geniunely say that what I post here works exceptionally well. I do alot of work with MDF and we all know of the hazards of wood dust, especially MDF. Im ...

How to find and harvest legal burls!

1772 days ago by OregonBurls | 37 comments »

Hey everyone, It was suggested that I start a discussion on how to find and harvest burls. Please give your input also. I don’t deal with straight grain that often. I cut and sell burls for a living so here is what I know. It is illegal to harvest a burl without permission. of course if it is on your own property you can give yourself permission. What I do is put an ad on Craig’s list saying I want your burls. Most people don’t know what burls are. So you don’t get that many calls....

Easy Shop Table

1314 days ago by Lockwatcher | 37 comments »

I started this project after building an assembly table from an issue of Wood Magazine (March 2010). The table was a lot of work (the torsion box top) but the main unit holding the table up was an easy build. That’s when I hit upon the idea of using the same design for a group of extra tables for other uses. I’ve built a number of these already, and am using one as a router table, a miter saw station, and a sharpening station. It is built using standard re-dimensioned co...

Building a roubo workbench in my apartment #1: Making the top

1647 days ago by brklnguy | 26 comments »

I never want to hear anyone complain about their shop… anything has to be better than a tiny living room in a 400sqft apartment. This is my first project with hand tools. I worked as a cabinetmaker for 6 years, and then moved to NYC 3 years ago and changed careers. I’ve been wanting to get back into building furniture, and after a few months of reading everything Chris Schwartz has written and pretty much every other hand tool blog on the internet, I feel like I know everything...

Shopmade Jointer #2: Getting the motor and cutterhead from Ryobi AP13AK Thicknesser

1055 days ago by Armand | 8 comments »

Proceeding with the jointer build. Before i started disintegrating all the parts of the thicknesser, I tested it first a few times and there was no snipe and other issues pertaining to its function, the machine was still in its prestine condition. Momentarily I hesitated to tear it down but i have to build this Jointer out from this machine. The only objective of demolishing this valuable machine is just to get the essential parts for the Jointer, the motor and the cutterhead. 1. The Ryob...

Restoring an old 6" jointer - Delta Milwaukee 37-207 #1: Restoring an old jointer for the shop

1745 days ago by Bob #2 | 11 comments »

A couple of weeks ago I rescued a an old 6” Delta/Milwaukee jointer from a Garage sale. ( Circa 1940’s)The fellow I bought it from was mostly into old cars and had no use for this iron and it sat rusting in his way. We made a decent deal and I lugged it homeward.The surfaces of the in and out feed table were rusted and pitted and I did think about having them re honed at a machine shop but first I felt it better to run it to see what else was wrong.About and hour with some rust re...
