Shop stuff #59: Makita 2012 thickness planer service

10-17-2016 12:27 AM by JimDaddyO | 8 comments »

Well, the planer was leaving tracks on one part of the blade. Obviously a chip in the knives at that point. So, with the camera rolling, I decided I would give the machine a bit of a clean up. It is a Makita 2012 planer, a little 12” lunchbox planer that I got from my father in law. So, the price was right. It is a bit odd in that the table moves up and down and the motor stays fixed in place. That makes in feed and out feed tables just about impossible. But, it is a good little ...

Cheap wood 101

10-10-2016 02:27 PM by Fatherlewis | 5 comments »

Hi fellow LJs. I must say that in my first couple of months here, I have learned a lot. This place is a wealth of knowledge and good ideas, and maybe some not too good ideas. But hey, we are all adults here, and we share our triumphs and defeats, good ideas and bad(if there really is such a thing), as well as good deals, trade secrets, and all other things woodworking. So I found a steal of a deal on the hardwood rough sawn lumber over the weekend. My excitement poured over on the insid...

Trestle Table #4: Mechanic Duties

09-02-2016 07:33 PM by HappyHowie | 2 comments »

If a woodworker is going to have electrical and mechanical equipment in his shop he should also acquire the skills to setup and repair those machines, or keep a mechanic handy. They won’t be cheap unless they are sons or brothers. I have both who are very skilled. I have tried to have them teach me what I need to know. If they have done tasks like wire in a panel or box then I attempt to copy their work. I heard my planer yesterday begin to make a loud racket. This morning I found t...

DIY Tools | Woodworking #2: A 4 Color Screen Printing Press

06-08-2016 11:19 PM by Humus Workshop | 1 comment »

I made this machine based on plans from, anyway if you note some differences with the plans, it is because after a time working on it, I have made some changes in the dimensions of the parts and some reinforcements to improve the printings on other materials such as wood, for example. This is a really versatile machine to make a lot of screen printing projects with great results, it can works with different materials as papers, fabrics, leather, wood and other porous mate...

End Table #7: Top, chore

06-02-2016 02:37 PM by Tony19 | 0 comments »

Today I made my top by glueing 3 pieces of oak together and sanding it. I did have some tribe making this because it would not fit in the planer so I had to use the handsander to sand it which took much longer. I also made my chore, and to do it, I used the dove cutter and glued the pieces together. I fitted the bottom in and put the false chore front on it and put the handle in. I sanded it and now it looks great in my end table.
