Bedroom Wall Unit #9: Moving upstairs

11-22-2010 04:21 PM by depictureboy | 0 comments »

Well I finally pulled the trigger. I noticed that I was falling into the rut that I do with my code, always waiting to release until its just right…well it never gets there, you have to pull the trigger not look back and fix the little things you miss as you move forward…. So anyway with the help of a friend I was able to get the tall cabinets upstairs. I have the back on one unit and it survived the move, my wife wanted me to get the other one moved up too while I had help...

First Cutting Board #3: Pre-finish

11-18-2010 10:20 PM by Szczuldo | 3 comments »

Figured i’d update this real quick. I just finished sanding the board flat and routing the finger holds. The board lost 0.5” in length (stupid me forgot to change zero on my plunge base when i changed the bit.) Looking back on this project, I wish I had more in my garage than just a Table saw, ROS, and router. Sure driving 10 minutes to my friend’s place and using their belt sander and jointer isn’t too much of an issue but I don’t want to overuse my welcome. ...

First Cutting Board #2: Final Glue Up

11-17-2010 04:46 PM by Szczuldo | 3 comments »

Well like all things, the final design has changed from my initial plans. I got access to a very nice 30” belt sander so smoothing the initial cuts was no issue. The oak in this board is from old wood flooring so the back had ridges that needed to be flattened out. The glue is a bit messy but that’ll be cleaned up. As you can see I had some burning issues, from the look of it probably due to the way I setup to do these cuts. I did what I could with the grain, I did not have an ...

Wood Hinge Box

11-17-2010 02:40 AM by Roger | 12 comments »

I’ve been fiddlin around with this…. expermenting. Had a few pieces of Oak n Walnut layin round. It needs glued, sanded, and finished still. I used 2 different sized woods on the front, back and sides. I finally got a chance to get the “Router Fence System” from Woodline out that I purchased at the WIA show in Sept. I’m real happy with this product. Hope I’ll have more boxes in my future projects. WOW! I can’t believe this was 100 days ago...

The Band Saw Accessories...made in the Shop #1: Cutting Thin Strips on the Band Saw

11-12-2010 09:30 PM by Bob Simmons | 7 comments »

Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.Thomas Edison, Inventor and Scientist (1847 – 1931) Often times in our woodworking shops we need to cut thin wood strips for our projects and in many cases the table saw is often considered the tool of choice by woodworkers. However, the band saw is proving to be the winner in my workshop especially when very thin strips of wood are needed for my wood projects such as wood ...

Band Saw Rip Fence...the Video

11-11-2010 01:17 AM by Bob Simmons | 6 comments »

“Necessity is the Mother of Invention” Plato….Ancient Greek Philosopher…(428 BC-348 BC) This short video shows the beauty and simplicity of the Band Saw Rip Fence. The L-shaped fence in the video was made from scrap MDF in 10 minutes and was available for use immediately thereafter. You will notice a protective strip of oak that was glued and pin nailed to the rip side of the fence. This will allow the fence to be used for a long time. The first time you use it y...

Bad Accidents Happen

11-09-2010 05:49 PM by mrg | 42 comments »

The other day I found that no matter how safe you try to be accidents do happen. Case in point, jointing a piece of oak using two push blocks to run the board through, the board exploded the blocks flew away and my left hand went into the blades. I amputated the top of my ring and middle finger and part of my index finger. It could have been worse. I am on blood thinners so this posed a whole bunch of complications.So I am stressing my fellow jocks, if you are not comfortable with a ce...
