Small workshop struggles with clutter; taking shortcuts

08-24-2016 04:21 AM by WoodworkinPROGRESS | 1 comment »

The past couple years ive developed a passion for woodworking. its my time where i can get so focused on my projects and completely block out anything the world is throwing at me at any given time. I guess you can say the craft itself is basically my therapist, only if i were to substitute a real therapist id probably save about 10x the money that i do on tools, but they are beginning to get to the point where they are starting to pay themselves off. In my opinion where the true passion for ...

New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #2: Restore & Install biesemeyer fence on the BandSaw

06-28-2016 04:48 AM by MikesProjects | 2 comments »

Be sure to check out the first part of this series where I get the saw & refurbish it… The old biesemeyer fence I am using was originally off a powermatic table saw. The shop I got it from had it set up on a saw that was used strictly for running dados. For that they cut the rails short & it only had a 18” rip capacity which worked out great for this bandsaw because I would have felt bad having to cut the rails down my self. I always feel bad modifying old vintage stuff, I...

New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #1: rust removal on cast iron top & refurbish action multiple videos

06-28-2016 04:03 AM by MikesProjects | 8 comments »

Video links below… Recently I purchased an older 20” bandsaw. I need a larger bandsaw that can handle anything I throw at it.. I think I found that in a mid 70’s Rockwell 20” wood cutting bandsaw. It probably came out of a school wood shop. The motor is 2hp, it has two speeds which can be adjusted with the belt, it has already been upgraded with carter guides, this big boy saw weighs over 600 lbs. I made several videos regarding this saw which i’ll post below. ...

Stack of walnut #2: Finishing problems and wood cracking

06-19-2016 06:28 PM by TeewinotWoodwork | 0 comments »

Had a little problem with my DO curing. After 5 days at 65-70 degrees and 12 hours in an 85 degree room I was still noticing a very small amount of wet oil on the sap wood. After doing some reading I took the table top out for some time in the sun. It was amazing the amount and speed with which oil started running out of the pores. These photos were taken after only 30 minutes in the sun, and only 65 degrees outside. Hopefully a day of sun exposure will finish curing/drawing out any remai...

I received a new Rikon Grinder but it has runs in the paint, time to repaint

Super excited to get back at woodturning again after almost 20 years, yes since I was a teenager. Back than I did a lot of woodturning in my fathers shop. I used to make money with my turnings back then selling them locally & work of mouth. I also used to sell wooden pipes to the local smokers. I specialized in 18” long piece pipes & back then $25 was a lot to me, still is, haha. So Far I have purchased a used wood lathe, a g1495 which they discontinued the month I got mine l...
