Harry's new router table and fence design #2: Adjustable router table fence

05-20-2012 01:43 PM by TheHarr | 14 comments »

My earlier router table fences lacked control. I would tap one side and the other would move. Tapping is an inexact way to move something in very small increments. I’ve hit on a very inexpensive, easy to make, router adjustment system that works well. It can quickly, and easily, zero in on precise fence adjustments. This fence is attached to the table using four bolts that can be set up and removed in just a couple of minutes. So less talking and more photos; thanks to my neighbor...

Outdoor Dining table #9: Our Outdoor Table is finished!!!

05-08-2012 11:05 PM by Ken90712 | 16 comments »

Blondie wondering where her wine is….. To those of you have been following and helping me thanks a million. Well, I finally finished our Walnut/ Granite outdoor table today. Just in time as my parents from Michigan will be here in Southern California Fri morning. Mom has been dying to see it, so the pressure was on. The finishing process was a long. I used Epifanes boat varnish from Holland. It takes 24 hours between coats although I found 48 hrs. to be better in between wet san...

Green and Greene Style Clock #2: DIY Router table out of necessity... aka Skil bash!

05-01-2012 07:36 PM by GodofBiscuits | 3 comments »

Necessity is the mother of invention. I have this saying above the doorway into my shop because just about every day I am having to create something new to be able to complete what work I have set out for that day. Yesterday it was a portable router table to replace the piece of $#!* Skil router table I bought from HD some time back. The router table has always been a pain in my arse and was never truly good for routing anything well. When I milled all the pieces for my Greene and Greene styl...

Evolution of Walnut & Pine television stand #2: Phase 2

04-28-2012 08:27 PM by TZH | 15 comments »

I’d like to thank you, junipercanyon , for your advice on chain sharpening for ripping. Man, what a difference. I figured since you advised somewhere between 0 and 10 degrees I’d split the difference and go with 5 degrees. Slabbed all three in less time than it took me to do the first cut in Phase 1 of this project. This is some really fantastic wood I’m working with, and I can only hope to be able to score more of it in the future. Step 1: Scribe the lines:I used a laser...

Evolution of Walnut & Pine television stand #1: Beginning the slabbing process

04-13-2012 12:35 AM by TZH | 7 comments »

Because our daughter’s tv stand/entertainment center was such a hit with her and just about everyone else who’s seen it we thought it might be time to do one for us, too. I do these things really, really slow because I’m old, don’t ya know. So step one was working up the energy to actually photograph the walnut log prior to marking it for slabbing: Can’t really see the lines I scribed on the log using a laser line to guide the cut, but they’re there ...

Split Roubo Workbench #4: Milling, gluing and clamping - The Slabs

04-11-2012 03:54 AM by lysdexic | 32 comments »

I took my lumber for the top to Rick’s at The Woodworking Source to mill it up. What is taking my better part of 2 days we knocked out in about an hour and a half. These are some pics of Rick’s place. Its interesting that Rick does not do woodworking outside of work. He golfs because it is what he does to forget about what he does when he needs to forget about what he does. He is a professional and a great asset. ———————...

Milling My 80 foot Redwood #1: 80 foot redwood

04-11-2012 03:41 AM by Napaman | 23 comments »

Last week I got sidetracked on SIDETRACKED in order to mill our 80 foot redwood tree that was getting too dangerous to keep. We dont live on a huge tract of land…just a small little home with a smaller front yard…about 60 years ago someone decided to plant a redwood tree…I have seen a picture of it when it was only a year old…and it was tiny… By 2012 it was so huge for its spot that it had outgrown its safety—-at some point someone had topped the tree y...
