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...

French Fry Friday #1: November 5, 2010

11-05-2010 03:31 PM by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

I started a theme for each day of the week. Fridays will be “French Fry Friday” and I’ll be talking about some sort of accessories that I build. Why “French Fry Friday”? I always here “would you like fries with that?” Fries are a side item and not part of the main meal. Same thing with the accessories or smaller items that I build. I blog about the big stuff but neglect the smaller stuff. So hear is a chance for often overlooked items to shine. This first one is a bookcase that was part of...

Bedroom Wall Unit #8: Spraying is becoming better

10-27-2010 10:51 PM by depictureboy | 2 comments »

I want to thank everyone who commented on my spraying conundrums the last couple weeks… I am now adding 2 dixie cups of denatured alcohol to 1 quart (sprayer cup) of dewaxed shellac…it is going much better. I also realized that the sprayer shipped with the largest needle installed. I downgraded to the smallest and that seems to be going much better now too…. You cant see it in the picture, but the finish is super clean…I put on about 6 coats last night and yo...

10-26-2010 07:13 PM by JBfromMN | 3 comments »

After having this new TV Entertainment Center project going on in my shop for over 2 months we were getting near the end. We installed the custom milled baseboard on all three pieces. Sanded them all the was to 180 and then started the finishing process. The first step was to take all of the doors and drawers out and remove all of the hardware. That was a monumental task in itself. There are a lot of hinges, knobs and slides on this thing. I am not sure I have mentioned it before, b...

Quest for a bigger TV #7: Bookcase Doors

10-25-2010 06:12 PM by JBfromMN | 3 comments »

This series has been about re-creating an existing wall entertainment unit to accomidate a larger TV for my parents. In the 2 side bookcases there were doors that have glass panels in them. My Dad took up the task of re-creating these glass panels himself. He located an Art Glass store in Minneapolis where he could purchase all of the supplies and equipment needed to create these glass panels. They are true divided light windows with brass caming. He spent about a month perfecting the ...
