Jet JBS-18 Bandsaw Restoration #1: Buying the Beast

262 days ago by FreezFurn | 2 comments »

I found this beastly bandsaw at an estate sale earlier this summer. I have been looking for an older 14 inch in working condition for quite some time for the right price, but Craigslist and other estate sales were not working out within my budget. I want a saw that can resaw and cut out bowl or pen blanks easily. Well this one seemed to fit the bill. I cannot find anything about it on the web, so I am posting this hoping someone can learn from my experience in trying to bring it back to l...

Old Clamps #4: Old Wooden C-Clamps

327 days ago by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

These are a few examples of old clamps I found on a popular auction site. Until I got into woodworking I didn’t know that C-Clamps could be made out of wood. These two antique examples look very much like those made by at least two YouTubers I’m familiar with. Something worth trying. Notice the brace inside the throat.

Old Clamps #3: Home Style bar clamps

333 days ago by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

These two bar clamps look home built. The top one has a slide mechanism built in for the push jaw. I’ve never seen that before. The turning crank also looks home produced, especially as it consists of a threaded rod and a large nail. The bottom one definitely looks light duty. The screw jaw looks a bit flimsy and the turning knob might not bring enough torque to bear for strong pressure. Still, an interesting specimen.

Old Clamps #1: Antique or Old Clamps

353 days ago by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

I’ve been keeping an eye on a popular auction website for old wood clamps. I’m not buying them, but I like to look at them. Sometimes I see one that looks particularly interesting or unique. Often look look very similar in design. I’m going to occasionally post pictures of interesting clamps I see. Some of these might give us ‘homemade clamp’ aficionados some ideas. Universal disclaimer, I’m not meaning to advertise for these items. I’m not lin...

150-year-old table

841 days ago by Ryan Haasen | 10 comments »

My parents recently bought this table from a friend. It is 150 years old. The top of the table is a 5” thick, solid slab of teak, and I am not sure of the species of the legs. It weighs about 800lbs. we were going to use it as a dining tale, but the knots on the side made it uncomfortable to sit at, so it is now more of a display table.

So I have this old beam from an 18th century house....

1022 days ago by Transition | 6 comments »

So I have this old beam (pictured) from an 18th century house in which an aquaintance grew up. I’d love to turn it into a gift for him and his new bride. I believe that the beam is red oak. It is 6”w x 3”d x 36”l (39” if you count the tenon). I was thinking of cutting off a slab, turning five 4” bowls/vessels from the rest, and displaying them on the slab. But I thought I’d post it and solicit suggestions. What would you do with this piece?

Grandfather's Tools

1035 days ago by Transition | 5 comments »

My Granfather’s name was Amos Leveille (pronounced “lev-ee-ay”) – 1909-1973. Upon my mother’s passing several years ago, I inherited what was left of my his tools. They had been left rusting in my mom’s basement for decades. I have been slowly refurbishing them, and putting them to use. It has been very enlightening, from both a tool and a person history perspective. I have given new life to these pieces, and they have returned the favor! Take a look&...
