Curved Front End Table #2: Curved Veneered Front Doors

02-23-2016 11:01 PM by Guy Dunlap | 6 comments »

Now that the carcass for the tables are just about complete, I set out to build the doors. First, I re-saw some cherry to 1/32” for the layers of the panel. I make a form and then using bendable plywood and the veneer, they go into the vacuum bag to make the curved doors. Then a skin of quilted cherry veneer goes on the front and back of the doors. This was a lot of fun, and I hope I don’t bore you by showing the whole process. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! ...

Today's Buys 20FEB16

02-21-2016 01:47 AM by Dex378 | 2 comments »

So today I had an hour to kill so I went up to my newest favorite store in XXXXwood, MA. It’s a junk store pretty much, they buy out estates and sell off the house contents, pretty damn cheaply I might add. Anyway, as a lover of all that is junk and all that is tools I picked my way through and found some decent stuff at a spectacular price! So I picked up a 25’ extension cord, a Stanley framing square (even though I probably have 6 of them at $0.50 cents I just had to have it...

Curved Front End Table #1: Case Construction

02-14-2016 11:27 PM by Guy Dunlap | 13 comments »

This is the start of a build for an end table. It will have curved front doors, a curved drawer, and the doors and drawer will have a book matched veneer. In this video, I start by pattern routing the front pieces, and then work on the case construction and the solid cherry book matched side panels. The case is put together with all mortise and tenon joinery, and even a few blind dovetails. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’ve got going on in...

Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.

Table saw blade hard to go down????

01-27-2016 02:30 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 4 comments »

I have a General 50-200r model table saw. Lowering the blade is a chore becuase it feels like its binding. I’ve squirt some liquid wrench & WD40 on the worm drive screws & worked it up & down. It’s gotten better but there is still an issue. Wondering if anyone else is having this issue & what’s a good lubricant to use on these gears as well? Also what would be a good cleaner to clean the gears with as well? Thanks all.

My Small Log Cabin Workshop #3: The workbench

01-27-2016 11:23 AM by Jordash | 1 comment »

So as the series continues to play catch up with where I am at the minute, I next took on the challenge of a workbench. This was to be the centre of my hand tool workshop, in the same way the table saw is often the centre of a machine workshop. Again attempting this on a budget I decided to use construction 2×4s and a few left over 2×6s from my recent attic project (I had put in a floor, but first lifted 6 inches to clear the extra insulation). This project was a really great ...

Pine tool box, Stanley Style #2: Dovetails, story of two saws

01-19-2016 12:44 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

When you can’t find the saw you want…use the next one on the hook? “Clearcut” brand, from a Hardware Dealer in Cleveland, OH. 10ppi, but cuts rips cut like butter? Ok. Been awhile since I had cut dovetails, and I got out of practice a bit. Wound up doing the tails first… These aren’t THAT bad, Once this side was done, I somehow had to mark out the pins…not the easiest for me to do. I use a pencil to mark things out. had to remember whi...

Pine tool box, Stanley Style #1: Start ups

01-18-2016 01:38 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Well, while going through the local Menards Store, went over and dug through there Value Wood rack…they were selling 1×10s and 1×12s, all under 3’ long. Picked through to get the clearer stuff. Wound up with five boards, for $1.69 each.. And, since the Single Brain Cell Sketch Up was “off-line” had to actually draw something on paper.. About as close to an actual “plan” as I get. Even drew a “page 2” Wore out the penci...
