Heres a quick video showing the build process… Enjoy! Its been a great project and I hope to soon post another video showing it in all of it glory.

The new Millers Falls tools

08-11-2011 10:25 PM by Tadd | 10 comments »

I recently discovered that HANGZHOU GREAT STAR INDUSTRIAL CO., LTD of Hangzhou Zhejiang Province, China has registered the trademark for “Millers Falls.” I write about it in my blog at Patent Craftsman. I ask you, why would HANGZHOU GREAT STAR INDUSTRIAL CO. want to use the old Millers Falls trademarks? Whatever your answer to this question, I urge you to be wary of buying new Millers Falls tools—these are not the same tools as those hardy and well-made products once pr...

Evolution of my router planer #7: Version 1.2c (had to tweak it again)

08-08-2011 06:52 PM by TZH | 5 comments »

Found out the trex clamps I talked about in my last version (http://lumberjocks.com/TZH/blog/24588) weren’t strong enough to withstand the pressure exerted by the bolt going through, plus didn’t hold the sled rigidly enough (too much diagonal movement). So, back to the drawing board. Figured a clamp should function like a clamp no matter what the design is, so I used 2×4’s for the stationary clamp (first photo) and 2×2’s (oak – second photo) for the mov...

Evolution of my router planer #6: Version 2.0

07-28-2011 05:31 AM by TZH | 2 comments »

A long time ago, I said I would post a blog entry showing how I plane really big pieces using my router planer. Well, here goes. I started out with some really big cottonwood rounds (that’s my son in the first photo): I cut them into 5” to 6” thick slabs and had to figure out a way to plane them down to 3” to 4” thick to use as table tops for TV stands and coffee tables. That’s when I came up with the Big Boy Router Planer below: I just hap...

Evolution of my router planer #5: Version 1.2b

07-28-2011 04:57 AM by TZH | 1 comment »

Awhile back, I began posting a series of blogs on the evolution of my router planer. Since that time I’ve actually made three more minor modifications that have had a huge impact on how well this thing works. The first modification: I was always frustrated with how long it took to measure the height at which to set the cross members of the planer using my square in a slotted 2×4. Well, I finally came up with a solution so simple even I was amazed (not the brightest bulb in the p...

Roubo Cabinet #16: Final Assembly - Drawer Backs, Bottoms and Fitting

07-25-2011 04:48 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 10 comments »

This is the last post required to complete the build and make ready for applying the finish of my choice to get this one in the books. Once all the drawer fronts have been joined to the sides, and those cut to rough length, I had to work on adding backs to the drawers as well as bottoms. All drawer backs were set into simple dados that were cut on the table saw. For the Big Drawer as well as the Big Pair of drawers, the drawer bottom consists of a single piece of repurposed hardboa...

My Ultimate Workbench Build #4: A sneak peak at the top layout... maple and walnut in love!!

07-11-2011 05:15 AM by RS Woodworks | 6 comments »

Not only do I love maple and walnut, but I think they love each other too. They look so damn good together… they work well together, and they compliment each other beautifully. What more could a couple ask for? Well tonight I managed a wee bit of shop time. Between my 4 hours of sleep last night, being up at 4:15 am, and dealing with a two year old and a four year old that don’t play nearly as nice together as maple and walnut do, it wasn’t much shop time. But it was enou...

Finding a new drive belt for my Delta portable planer Model 22-540

07-09-2011 06:01 PM by bobdurnell | 5 comments »

Recently I was planning some 4/4 walnut and cherry to make a box. I got greedy and was gang feeding the 10 inch wide by 14in long boards thru the planer and the cutter head slowed down but the motor kept up the rpms and then everything stopped except the motor. I melted the drive belt! To make a long story short, I called every Porter Cable Delta place to see if I could get a new drive belt. Absolutly no luck, was told at the last place that the belt was discontinued. Nooo! Fortunately t...

how i save space in my shop #1: my planer jointer

06-29-2011 08:31 AM by emart | 8 comments »

for those wondering how i can possibly put as many machines into my shop as i do the answer is this: its not easy. in order to have my planer in my shop and not a trip hazard i had to put it inside my jointer. it was a nightmare dealing with how i can fit my machine inside the stand of another one. i had to add an angle iron frame to the bottom of my jointer stand and couldnt just put my planer inside it directly as it was a little too tall so i had to angle it in and then put in a plywood...
