We painted the bedroom recently and decided to put up crown molding. Our house is 100 years old, and the Home Depot stuff just wasn’t getting us excited. We finally found a place here in Denver that specializes in old style moldings, since they’ve been in business since the moldings were originally created. Turns out we liked one of their in-stock moldings, so I’ve got 56 lineal feet of it ready to be put up. You can also see the cutting jig I made with the very expl...
Here are some more photos showing the progress of my saws cabinet. It fits perfectly where it’s supposed to then when I connect the outfeed table and Biesmeyer style fence to it there should be no problem with maintaining alignment.I think I’ll put about two feet out the back for the outfeed table not including the mounting/hinge area. I’m going to make my own hinges instead of purchasing them; just brackets with dowels for the pins. Then, probably 8...
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...
Buildup of a small display cabinet I’m working on that will hold Riker boxes, holding that hold coins/buttons/medals. Really good weekend project and a good beginner project to. Made from quartersawn white oak since it gives a good rustic feel. I’m still getting used to filming and one thing I notice is I need a lot more light.
In this episode I give you a tour around my garage shop. Here is the link to the shop bench series.
I’m making a small table for my wife’s TV room. All my lumberjocks friends have given me the courage and some knowhow for me to once again stretch the envelope and try the hardest project to this point. Thank you my friends! The room is very small and needs very small end tables and a small cocktail table. I figured that since the room is next to the entryway with the dodecahedron pendant light, I might as well push the theme. On top of that, I own the lumber already which h...
I needed a new table saw sled for a different saw i’m using. I’m currently finishing a miter saw cut station I built & needed a sled to make small cuts. After having made a few others I notice how wooden sleds react to moisture content in the air so I wanted this new one to be built with out wood. I made this new sled out of left over plexiglass I had laying around & used aluminum for the runners. The fence is actual bulletproof glass.It came out better looking than I wou...
In this three part video series we build a “multi function miter saw station” that will be used not only as a miter saw station but also a space for my sanding machines, drill press and scroll saw. In part two I finish assembling the table top by building the auxiliary fence as well as installing some custom dust extraction.

Anyone own one of these? Looks sweet! Was offered one from a friend. Price yet to be determined. Hitachi Saw
Hi people, as promised I’ll show you the recovery that I did with this old miter saw “Compa 250 Export”. It’s a beautiful tool, entirely of cast-iron, and since over the years has been used by professional carpenters (2 generations) is still highly accurate!The work, although it was the first time I competed in a similar work was hard but fun, thanks to friends of “il-truciolo.it”. Special thanks must go to my great friends Franco (woodhobby58), Aldo (om-ald...
