Wood Lathe Router Guide #1: Wood Lathe Router Guide

09-12-2012 03:36 AM by Jim Jakosh | 17 comments »

I’ll take you through the steps I used to build my router guide for my wood lathe. It is essentially a box with adjustable sides and top which has a slot to guide the router bushing. It is made from 5/8” plywood, clear Lexan, Steel and aluminum.I started with a 11.5×11.5 bottom and cut rabbets on both sides on the table saw and made a cut out for the tail stock. The sides were glued in place held square by a couple scrap blocks. They had T nuts installed for the adjustment ...

Sharpening #1: Sharpening planer knives

03-09-2010 11:03 PM by Daren Nelson | 15 comments »

It’s hard to shoot these by myself, so 2 different angle (2 different knives) This is the machine. A Foley Belsaw model 355 Basically the motor with a grinding wheel rides the track and the knives are clamped to the rail. I have numerous shims to get them set the right distance. The carriage for the motor/grinding wheel also moves to and away from the knife rail. The head obviously pivots to the proper angle of the original grind bevel of the knife. The wheel in the second video t...

Lightbox for Lithophane display...

10-22-2010 05:08 AM by Arbo | 3 comments »

I am making lithophanes, and needed to come up with a display box that they could be mounted in and backlit for display. I drew up the following as a basic idea: I don’t have a jointer or plainer or table saw (just a CNC router) so I ‘borrowed’ a friends fathers workshop and bought some alder, and went to work cutting… and here is the actual item so far: It is 13” x 15” x 3.75” deep. I am staining them now (as can be seen in the ...

Easy Shop Table - Planer Table #1: Starting the project...

03-26-2011 11:07 PM by Lockwatcher | 3 comments »

NOTE: I have just edited this blog to make some corrections in the original text! I have begun building my last (?) Easy Shop Table. Based on a similar design used in my Assembly Table from Wood Magazine (March 2010). Once again, this table (like my others) is built from standard grade construction lumber, redimensioned for the project (from the big box store). So far, I’ve purchased 2 2×10”s x 10’ for the frame of the project. The lumber cost for the frame assem...

Face Jointing Wide Boards on a 6" Jointer

11-23-2011 04:02 PM by tenontim | 13 comments »

After commenting and following a post by MichaelJ, I decided that a picture or two is worth a thousand words. So, here’s how I do it. (I had also posted in the past another way, but I like this method better)First, remove the blade guard on your planer. Set the fence to the maximum width.Face joint the board as you normally would, until the jointable surface is flat.You should now have the flat, jointed surface and the “rabbet” from the overhang.This is the spacer board, whi...

Power Tools #1: Shopsmith Mark V Restoration

11-24-2013 02:54 AM by Jerry | 27 comments »

Please don’t laugh, I know all of you out there have “real” power woodworking tools. I could not afford the stuff I wanted as I’m just getting started, and I thought a used Shopsmith might be a good way to get going fast. So I bought this 1954 Shopsmith Mark V on Craigslist for $200.00. After I got it home, it promptly started making all kinds of terrible racket, and I discovered that I had bought $200.00 worth of junk, well almost. I found a place where I cou...
