The Rocking Alligator #3: Construction Notes

08-01-2011 04:38 AM by BentheViking | 0 comments »

The main body of the alligator is a box. My problem has been that I don’t have a planer or joiner so making a box with tight joints is rather difficult. I sanded them out a little bit, but ended up having to make the joints a bit rough and then puttying them. Puttying has become a big theme on this project. I had originally wanted to make this project super perfect with tight joints and whatnot. My problem is that with my impending move, I am having to rush through things. It kind of...

General thoughts on life and woodworking #5: The most important project of my life

05-11-2011 09:00 PM by Jack_T | 18 comments »

The project is not made of exotic wood. It is not a complicated piece of furniture. It does not have sophisticated joinery. It is finished only with house paint. Normally, I would consider a project like this to be a simple throw away project made for the fun of it but not very important at all. This time was very different though. It would be turn out to be the most important project of my life. The project was commissioned by my six year old daughter, Jacqueline. She came t...

MDF Spline Cutting Sled #1: The Sketchup Chronicles

03-19-2011 07:43 PM by Brad_Nailor | 16 comments »

I was flipping through a catalog the other day and happened upon a spline cutting sled that this company was selling. I really liked the design of it, so I went on their website and learned all about it, watched videos etc. The only problem was, I didn’t want to pay the (what I thought was) high price for something that I could probably make myself…not to mention I’m broke, and cheap, and have enough scrap materiel’s lying around that I can make it almost for free. I...

Making a CNC Router #1: Part 1: Assembly

02-24-2011 05:29 AM by KylesWoodworking | 30 comments »

Well I just turned 17 years old today, February 23, 2011, and I have always wanted to make a CNC router. So for my birthday, I asked my dad to get me a CNC hardware and plans kit from www.buildyourcnc.com. Then I went to Lowes and the Home Depot to get a sheet of MDF, aluminum angles, threaded rods, and various other items I needed to make the machine. So the whole weekend last week, I’ve been working on cutting all the parts I need and then drilling all the holes in the pieces. Here is...

Expandable Worktable

01-09-2011 12:07 AM by Dan | 8 comments »

I’ve recently started woodworking over the past 6 months and I’ve been getting my shop together. I needed a table that I could use as an assembly, outfeed, and work table. I got the idea for this project from the newest Shop Notes Vol. 20 Issue 115. The idea is a small footprint work table that can expand to hold a full sheet of plywood for cutting. The table also has a sacrificial top so that I can abuse the thing without worrying about it. This bench is also completely made of 2...

“And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” ...Nelson Mandela, first black president of South Africa & Nobel Prize recipient .(1918- ) The idea of the tilting bandsaw miter sled came to me while working on creating a variety of wood inlay banding patterns for various wood projects to be built. Sometimes my choice is to cut inlay segments by using the dedicated miter sled for the table saw and for those operations the ...

The Band Saw Accessories...made in the Shop #2: Bandsaw Crosscut Sled

11-15-2010 09:42 PM by Bob Simmons | 17 comments »

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. Charles Darwin…(1809 -1948) English Naturalist Sometimes as woodworkers we face a variety of situations that require some versatility and a little thought. This occurred to me one day while making wood inlay bandings in the woodworking shop. There are times that I feel quite comfortable making crosscuts on the 10 inch table saw using one of my cross cut sleds. Howe...

The Band Saw Accessories...made in the Shop #1: Cutting Thin Strips on the Band Saw

11-12-2010 09:30 PM by Bob Simmons | 7 comments »

Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.Thomas Edison, Inventor and Scientist (1847 – 1931) Often times in our woodworking shops we need to cut thin wood strips for our projects and in many cases the table saw is often considered the tool of choice by woodworkers. However, the band saw is proving to be the winner in my workshop especially when very thin strips of wood are needed for my wood projects such as wood ...
