Modified my sliding crosscut sled for the band saw

201 days ago by CueballRosendaul | 2 comments »

A while back, I posted my sliding crosscut sled, but then I later built another sled that slid over both sides of the blade. The original sled was just to the left of the blade and left a cutoff piece to dance around and connect with the blade a few times. I found the perfect use for the old one sided sled at the band saw. I had to make a new runner, but the old one popped off easy enough. I cut it down to 12” wide and moved the end clamp closer to the left so it would not be off bal...

Trying new woodworking skills #15: Mitering success

228 days ago by BJODay | 3 comments »

I had some problems cutting my mitered table top. I used an Incra miter gauge but had trouble holding the piece firmly. I have a shop built miter sled, but because the pieces are small, they don’t lie well against the fence. I bit the bullet and bought the Incra miter express sled. I’m not doing a review here but I like the sled. I felt very safe using it. The only problem I had was binding in my miter slot. I have a Craftsman Hybrid TS. It has a granite top. I may have to ...

Trying new woodworking skills #14: Table top miter problem

245 days ago by BJODay | 2 comments »

The plans I’m following call for table tops made up of glued-up boards. I have some very nice Qsawn oak boards with very straight grain. I thought it would look better if I mitered and rotated pieces along the board so the grain would “follow” around the perimeter of the tops. I like my miter saw so I cut the boards for the smallest table using it. Well for some reason I got some flex in my blade so the cut is not perfectly straight. I’m using a thin kerf 12” ...

Adventures in Tool Making #1: A Pair of Tenon Saws from a Disston Miter Saw - Cutting the Saw Plate

438 days ago by grfrazee | 5 comments »

I recently came back from spending a couple months in Kansas for work. On one of my weekend trips to an antique store, I found this lonely, broken miter saw tucked in a dark corner. You can see the broke handle, but you can’t see the horrendous rust on the back side. For $10, I decided to give it a new home. Of course, if the saw knew what I was planning to do to it, it might not have agreed to follow me out of the store. Since I already have a Disston miter very similar to t...

Dresser / Chainging Station #4: Drawer slides, base and back

708 days ago by Andrew | 0 comments »

Made some more progress on the dresser last night. Installed the hardwood drawer slides, back and base. I was concerned about the base having 45 degree miters, as I have never really had too much success with miters. The front base is a three piece base. Since I was concerned about the miters being accurate, I wanted to have the flexibility of creating the middle run separate. This worked out OK, but not as well as I wanted it to. Some sanding will help alleviate noticeable cracks and ...

There have been quite a few times that the long list of Wood Working Celebrities have commented on what it takes to become a good wood worker. The one common quote usually goes a little something like this. Stop (watching / reading, ) my (show / blog), getup and get into your shop and get woodworking This type of quote has been issued time and time again, and I realized that I have been sitting in my living room and watching these shows and reading these blogs more than I had gotten i...

Heavily modified Paul Sellers workbench #2: Last night was a good night

848 days ago by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) aka. Lucas Crenshaw | 4 comments »

After a very early morning and a good day working away from my normal 40 hour a week job. I was able to spend the latter half of yesterday working on my bench. I managed to get the skirts cut, and installed. I did not glue the sides on or the top on. Here is the results…. How do you guys like that Japanese angle guide. It was worth the $55 I paid for it, and will never leave my toolbox. The bottom picture shows how my bench is different from Mr. Sellers’...

Strongest mitre for picture frame - How I made it

890 days ago by Paul Sellers | 4 comments »

Moulding the stock Following up from the video film on the strength of these mitres. These are the steps I took to make this picture-frame moulded and inlaid stock and the frame itself. It’s dead straight forward using a pair of wooden T&G planes, a moulding plane, a tenon saw and a plane. You can make a simple shooting board with stop screwed to a board at 45-degrees or a proper one with removable stops. I took about 45 minutes to make it. Mould the stock with the moulding plane. I...
