CLAMP FOR MY BIESMEYER FENCE UNDER CONSTRUCTION

03-27-2012 01:07 AM by Metrotek | 1 comment »

Greetings to all once again; I am attaching photos of the clamp for my new Biesmeyer style fence that is under construction. It came out fairly well.The circular pads are adjustable by carriage bolts threaded in to t-nuts to correct any undesired angularity. The ¾” dowel is a plunger that the cam pushes to lock the fence in place. The two piece pad that the dowel pushes will have an elastomer sandwiched between the pieces to provide a spring action so the cam can over clamp it...

Five years later, Workshop Remodel. Going from pretty to functional #12: Miter saw dust collection update

04-23-2014 11:54 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 1 comment »

After using the dust collection on my miter saw I feel I’ve finally found a method that will work to collect almost all the dust. The video below is of a working miter saw station. It’s portable and although not finished completely, everything on it us up and working. It also tells of a few other ideas of mine that are or are not needed in a miter saw station. Your mileage may vary. Backstory: I’ve had two stationary miter saw stations and one mobile. This is the second m...

2nd Saw ??

09-18-2010 11:04 PM by majeagle1 | 13 comments »

I don’t believe that this subject has been brought up or not before but as I go throught the many processes of making boxes, there are times when I hate to disrupt or change the settings on my table saw ( blade angle to be exact ) and wish that I had a 2nd saw. I know that many of you have both a table saw and miter saw but do any of you have a “2nd saw” like a smaller trim saw / table top saw for cutting smaller, more detailed pieces and maybe different angles? It sure does...

Chicken Coop #1: Gathering tools and supplies

05-10-2010 04:56 PM by fiddlebanshee | 6 comments »

The 7×8 lean-to shed is going to be delivered tonight. This is a simple but sturdy Amish built shed with a roof that is about 6’ at one side and 5’ at the other. We plan on having between 10 and 15 chickens to free range and rid our yard of ticks, since my husband has been afflicted with lyme disease. The structure does not have any windows or ventilation, nor any “chicken-furniture”, so I’ll have to modify it. This is my first big remodeling/woodworki...

The Ancient China frame - How I did it.

02-01-2008 05:09 PM by grovemadman | 3 comments »

The frame is easy to make out of pine, fir or any soft wood. We want to make it look precision yet old at the same time. The hardest part is convincing the sun to age your project for you 2000 years in about a few days time. The sun owed me for a few sunburns soooo… Just kidding, we’ll get to the aging part later.I remembered a frame I had seen at the museum in grade school. I jumped in my truck that weekend and went to the museum to look at ancient lacquered furniture. I took not...

Overkill Dog Gate

02-16-2014 09:47 PM by Rockindokken | 2 comments »

My lovely Fiance’s dog loves to wander about my house and pee if you’re not watching her, so we needed a way to contain the 10 lbs of Yorkie Fury. I do have to say she’s probably the quietest and laziest Yorkie I’ve ever met, so this gate didn’t need to be anything large. I have a Bearded Collie, but he’d never try to defeat a gate, he’s just not into making me upset. My fiance wanted to buy a dog gate online, GASP! I told her I had a pile of scra...

Tool Box #2: lid building

08-17-2014 01:47 AM by bandit571 | 6 comments »

and panel raisin’ Got the Pine panel out of the clamps. Hand planed to as flat as I could get in. Time to raise a panel. Same way as the side panels. Mark out a “stop line” about 1” in from the edge. Take a #4 sized handplane, set it a bit deep. Go at a diagonal to the grain. Plane until you reach the stop line, check the remainder of the edge for straightness. As you get close to the finish line, back off the depth of cut. I do the end grain ...

New Shop in the Raw #1: New Shop in the Raw

11-01-2015 07:25 PM by builtinbkyn | 28 comments »

Hello folks. Been frequenting LJ for a while, looking for answers to questions, inspiration and to view the many interesting and truly craft worthy and artistic projects posted here. I’m somewhat retired from the construction industry – trained architect turned developer. I’ve run large scale projects on the Empire State Building to small development projects. However I’m mostly a frustrated woodworker at heart. My first attempt ever, at woodworking was back in ...

The Bar #1: The Bar to man cave

11-29-2014 09:58 AM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

11 months ago it was decided we would have new years on our new deck that was only built a month before. So we decided on the spur of the moment to build a bar From there the bar seems to have taken on a life of its own. It no longer an out door bar, it is fully enclosed and water proofed... which in it self was a challenge once was water proofed we got power added so the bar fridge and TV, lights and accessories. The french doors we made at my work and got them installed once they went up...
