"adirondack chair making" #1: my first adirondack chair was made in 1995, now two decades later, I am still at it

02-05-2014 10:37 AM by paperclip | 2 comments »

when I was a freshman in high school (1995), I won the end of the year award for woodshop when I produced an Adirondack Chair. Now 2014, I am still at it. I only get better and better at them. Now I am giving them some Texas, southwestern, rustic flare with a cut-out the shape of the state. I now make Adirondack chairs on a weekly basis mostly for therapy. But I sell them too. In post(s) to follow I will explain more about Adirondack chair making.

Zero Clearance Insert for Ridgid 10" Sliding Compound Miter Saw

01-24-2014 02:57 PM by Garth | 1 comment »

I made a zero clearance insert for my Ridgid 10” sliding compound miter saw and I thought some others might be interested in it. I pulled the orange factory insert out and it was 0.250” thick. I started looking around for something close and then found a 5-gallon paint stirrer from HD was the right thickness. I glued three of them together and cut it to fit. Below are the pictures. Here is more information.

New Tools

01-18-2014 09:03 PM by Jerome | 2 comments »

I am currently working on a set of built in cabinets for two areas designated for them. I will do a big specifically on the project soon. Along the way I discovered that I did not have all the “necessary” tools for the job. The first realization occurred when I began cutting the base molding. My miter saw was just 7” and I needed a few more inches to cut the base molding. I could have used my table saw to cut it, but rather than going through the table of that, I looked on C...

Woodworking For Therapy #8: Chemo Therapy Makes Sawdust Taste Metalic

01-15-2014 11:16 PM by Steve Kreins | 12 comments »

Chemo Therapy Makes Sawdust Taste Metallic, YUK! I don’t mind the food tasting funny because it isn’t going to stay down that long anyway. But I was enjoying the smell and taste of sawdust, I guess I need to wear a dust mask, but that seems to take some of the fun out of woodworking. ;) Seriously, the Nurse Practitioner asked, “Any side effects yet?” I said, “Yea, my sawdust tastes like metal filings.” She said, “I beg your pardon? Sawdust?” I c...

Education and torment #2: Red Oak Sandpaper Storage cabinet

01-12-2014 06:44 PM by GeneR | 3 comments »

This cabinet is made from leftover red oak, Luan, birch plywood and plexiglass that I had in my shop. It is approximately 17”T x 7 1/2”W x 6” deep. I would have liked to make it a little taller to handle a couple more shelves and slightly deeper to have been able to recess the back panel. The Box I first sent the oak through the joiner to ensure I had 1 flat square edge. I then cut the board to the proper widths on my table saw then to final lengths on the Miter...

Shed/Office (all slabbed lumber)

01-04-2014 04:16 AM by JohnnyMike | 3 comments »

We recently built a tractor shed/office building in the village where I live and work with the Hewa tribe. All the wood used for this project was from pine trees that we cut down and slabbed ourselves. The tin, though, we had to have flown in on a small, single prop Cessna. The shed is now used to house the small tractor and slasher that we use to keep our grass airstrip cut. The other side has two small 8’x8’ offices for me and my co-worker that we use for language study as we...

Woodworking For Therapy #5: Learning By Mistakes

12-26-2013 03:06 AM by Steve Kreins | 7 comments »

This past week I learned a great deal from my mistakes. I’m glad I have a good scrap pile. Some of the things I learned were, while making practice cuts, with my new compound miter saw. First the laser guide is handy, but not accurate. I tried to find an adjustment but there isn’t one. It’s slightly off by different amounts depending on the angle of the cut. I learned that if I eye ball with the tip of the blade, with the saw not running, both at the front and rear of the...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #15: Happy Christmas and Best Wishes for the New Year to One and All!

12-22-2013 12:50 PM by PhilBello | 1 comment »

I decided to make some last minute stocking fillers for family and friends, this year it was Cheese Boards, I bought some hardwood sheets from HomeCenter, unfortunately there was no description as to what wood was used to make up these sheets, but it had a nice grain.To make the process easier, I decided to make a another Spindle Sander which could be used on the Pillar Drill, or as is described in ‘The Family Handyman’, a drum sander. The idea being this is clamped on the ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #14: Table Saw Taper Jig

12-17-2013 02:12 AM by PhilBello | 1 comment »

When it came to making wooden wedges, my efforts were always hit and miss, however because hopefully, in the New Year sometime, we will finally be in the position to buy our own place, and one that needs a bit of work, I thought I had better start getting prepared. One of the things I will need, will be shims for putting in door frames, I have to be honest when it comes to finding tools or accessories you need, here in Colombia, it is very hit and miss. The reason I keep being given is,...
