Work(shop) in Progress #8: New Table Saw: Low Profile Riving Knife for Ridgid R4511

1837 days ago by PurpLev | 53 comments »

So among the few shotcuts that were made by providing the R4511 at the market price was the fact that it only came with a splitter+integrated blade guard but no additional low profile riving knives (for non through cuts). for the price this saw comes at – one can’t complain, and the fact is- it does have a riving knife mount system which is a good base to start with. solution: homemade riving knife made out of 1/8” plate of 6063 aluminum: EDIT: If I’d do this again,...

Work(shop) in Progress #6: New Table Saw : Unpacking and Assembly of Ridgid R4511

1859 days ago by PurpLev | 50 comments »

So after much research and debates, I have finally charged the card, and 2 days later the delivery arrived with the new saw in the box (I opted to have it delivered from the store as opposed to pick it up myself – at 450lbs, I simply wouldn’t be able to unload it myself) Delivery from HD was swift and smooth, positive and friendly guy stop at my place saturday morning, and helped me position the box in my garage – I couldn’t be happier (took 5 minutes, 4.5 of those was...

A Bit of Rambling about a Beautiful Sunny Day, and Being Bummed Out about A Stolen Knife

2052 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 12 comments »

I awoke this morning to a dreary, cold, very foggy day. I don’t mind fog, my morning commute to work is only about 40 feet behind the house, and a little fog doesn’t slow me down much walking out there. Actually, it is mornings like this that I’m reminded how much I have to be thankful for. Back in the days when I had to commute by car 87 miles to Wichita, a foggy morning like this one was a real burden, even treacherous. I always write on the calendar when we have ...

DANGER! Chinese Plywood

2211 days ago by Tom Adamski | 46 comments »

Yes it’s cheap, and most of the time it will warp as soon as it is removed from the stack, but it can also be dangerous. Acording to an employee at Owl Hardwood in Lombard, IL, there is an instance where metal was found between the plys. The consumer that bought it found what appeared to be a utility knife blade while he was ripping the sheet on a table saw and in doing so, destroyed his blade. No coments if the person was injured, but I would not want to be around when pieces of ca...

Christmas Projects #1: Started my Christmas projects.

2344 days ago by Sgt_Lobo | 1 comment »

Well, as I said in last night’s blog, today I started 3 projects that I need to finish in time to send off before Christmas. So I guess my insomnia paid off though because I was able to draw up my plans, measure and mark all my wood last night which made cutting today go allot quicker. So, today between baking pies and pumpkin bread, I managed to cut all my pieces to length, rip them to width, and miter the ends. Not bad for a days work. Heres some pics/teasers… 1st pic...

Confirmation on the order for the Custom Steak Knife Sets

2353 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 12 comments »

Well, after being excited, then not, then excited, then not, and then excited, and then not, for the past 3 weeks, today I was told that a check is in the mail for the deposit money for the Custom Steak Knife sets I will be making. So, I’m officially at “excited” again. I posted a few days ago about the knife/scrimshaw samples being sent here: http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/decoustudio/blog/2470 Now, I just wanted to follow up, and post that I did get the order today....

Samples Shipped for a Custom Steak Knife Set; with Antler Handles, Scrimshaw and Inlay work.

2355 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 9 comments »

For the past 14 months, I have waited patiently to see if my investment in a prestigious national woodworking show would pay off. Sure it was a lot of fun to be counted acceptable by the jury, and to attend the show, but it is hugely expensive for a small one-man operation like I run here. Not only just the cost of the booth fees, but getting things ready to take is a huge undertaking, renting a truck, fuel, hotel, food, etc. I was disappointed with the “return” on my investmen...

Something from the past!!

2404 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 10 comments »

This is a knife I made almost 60 years ago. _Bob, reminded me of this in his metal working blog. I told Bob I’d get a picture of it, But the knife now lives with my oldest Son down in AR. He kindly sent me some pictures. Our high school offered an General metals course, in 10th grade. The first 1/3 of the year we learned how to weld, both Gas, & Electric arc. The next 1/3 we did blacksmithing, & forging. The last 1/3 we did pattern making, & casting aluminum. This knif...

Garden Bench and Table Construction #2

2457 days ago by CedarFreakCarl | 1 comment »

I forgot to mention on the first part of this blog that I don’t have any pictures of construction on the bench. This was due partly to my camera crapping out on me and I really didn’t know this thing would turn out as good as it did. After completing the bench and seeing the results, I figured it would be a good idea to take pictures when I decided to do the table and share them with ya’ll. So, I bought a new camera. With that said I continue:Here’s what I used for a &...
