Shop stuff #60: Starting on the coffee table

10-23-2016 02:40 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Now that I have made the track for the circular saw, and got the planer tuned up, I can actually start building the coffee table that I promised my wife for her birthday back in January. I am taking a bit of a different tack on this series of videos by making them shorter. I think that will make viewing them easier. Most of my build videos I have made longer because I thought I would lose continuity but I think they may be a bit long for viewing. This series I am going to try to keep each...

HHS Wood 2 - Wall Cabinet #2: The face frame (mortise and tenons)

10-11-2016 02:43 AM by Tooch | 5 comments »

Before getting started on the joinery, you will need to square up boards to the dimensions that were given in class. *Note: make sure that your thickness is uniform throughout all pieces and planed to 3/4” Anytime you are making mortise and tenon joints, it is very important to cut the mortises first and the cut your tenons to fit. In order to cut the mortises, we will be using the “Go-No-Go” fixture to hold down the workpieces. Lineup a side piece with the ends ali...

I needed a track saw to cut a slab to make a coffee table. So I made one. This is how I did mine. By using the table saw to cut a dado in the base, the track is as accurate as a table saw. View on YouTube

Retooling Part 2

09-14-2016 11:48 AM by thegringoww | 0 comments »

Why in the world would I call this part 2 of a post that should have been only one part? Well, if you read my original post, you would had read that the Ms and I decided not to move to Queretaro, Mexico. This is where this post pick up from. It turns out that the Ms. and I are in fact moving to Queretaro, Mexico. While we were there last time, we stayed at an Airbnb, and we became really good friends with the owner. I was chatting with her one day, and she mentioned that she would like fo...

Gil-Bilt 18" Band Saw build #9: Completion!

08-29-2016 02:01 PM by mountainaxe | 3 comments »

The last steps in this project didn’t take too much time. First, I attached the front top panel to the two hinges. Next, I attached a guide support made from two 1/2” plywood pieces to the rear upper wheel cover. This piece also has two hanger bolts to mate with holes in the front upper wheel cover. There are also two thumb nuts and bolts for adjusting the blade guide. The blade guide fits over these bolts and can slide up and down by loosening the nuts. I next screwed the m...

Instruments #1: Archtop Guitar

08-28-2016 06:17 PM by RonPeters | 6 comments »

Looks as if I can’t make furniture like the rest of you folks… I’m forever stuck making instruments… This guitar took me two years to make partly because I started from scratch. No molds or jigs so I had to make them. I got the bug to try an archtop because 1. play guitar, 2. always wanted one, 3. it costs a lot less to just go out an buy one ready made. Here’s the process beginning to the end. Layout Transfer to wood blank At...

Gil-Bilt 18" Band Saw build #8: Rip fence

08-27-2016 04:29 PM by mountainaxe | 0 comments »

The plans call for a rather simple rip fence fabricated from hardwood. I decided to use some leftover 3/4” oak to make my fence. I laminated two pieces together and dado’d a channel in the top to accept stops, clamps, etc. The shorter piece bolted to the metal clamp/indicator (that runs on the aluminum channels) and I attached this piece to the fence proper with a single dowel. The fence is simple to remove from the table when not in use. Think it looks good.
