Cherry sideboard #2: She's got legs, and she...

177 days ago by SFDCapt | 0 comments »

Alright, the legs were glued up in part one. Since then I milled them to final dimensions by jointing on two sides, then running them through the table saw just oversized. The legs were then ran through the planer to get the final size I was looking for. Using the table saw to get the bulk of the waste off reduced the amount of shavings from the planer that had to go through the dust collector. The next step was to create the lower side stretchers. The rough lumber was milled 1 ¾”...

Flip Table #5: Mounting the Tools

183 days ago by hjt | 4 comments »

Flip Table ALMOST done! So now that I have the flip table constructed… now the scary part…. actually attaching the heavy tools and trusting God that the table will hold them!!! I added two threaded inserts over top of the pole and screwed down two bolts to prevent the pole from moving when I flip the table. Learning from my friend “Hank”: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=beachside%20hank&sm=12,I need to find the center of the mass (weight) and not t...

Part #2 Case and Lid

184 days ago by S4SWWS | 1 comment »

The Sides are S4S Red Oak and the Lid is S4S White Oak with a little character. The lid is a floating panel which I glued up with the box sides and then I cut the lid on the table saw. The bottom is pretty simple, and is made of 1/4 inch oak ply with upholstery leather. Next part is the tray for holding standard sized paper.

Dust Collection for 12" Delta Planer

192 days ago by Underdog | 8 comments »

Well it’s kinda clunky and made outa junk ductwork, but the price was right, and it works! I started with some old pipe from a friends vent hood off their old stove. It had an accumulation of gunk from years of cooking. It was serviceable after scraping and bending flat though. Then I drew up the 4” high transition from a 13.5” x 2.75” rectangle to a 4” circle. I cut that half pattern out and transferred it to the sheet metal with a center p...

Bathroom Vanity Commision #1: Concept, Milling, and Legs

202 days ago by emetric | 0 comments »

I started a commission for a custom bath vanity a few months ago. I am going to try to blog the process in as much detail as I can remember for anyone that would like to follow along. The project is not quite finished yet and I had been meaning to start the blog ages ago but I guess better late than never. Here goes. Ok so the concept was to build an open style furniture vanity unlike your cabinet type units. So I came up with a concept as shown below modeled in sketch up. It was origi...

Shed/Office (all slabbed lumber)

203 days ago by JohnnyMike | 3 comments »

We recently built a tractor shed/office building in the village where I live and work with the Hewa tribe. All the wood used for this project was from pine trees that we cut down and slabbed ourselves. The tin, though, we had to have flown in on a small, single prop Cessna. The shed is now used to house the small tractor and slasher that we use to keep our grass airstrip cut. The other side has two small 8’x8’ offices for me and my co-worker that we use for language study as we...

22-540 - Setting Knives W/O Jig

215 days ago by Weth | 3 comments »

So I am making some saw dust and I go to turn on my 22-540 planer and I hear a crunch. I get a sick feeling knowing that I am either going to be out some time or money or both. It turns out that the dust hood 50-359 shifted and was caught in the blade. The shroud is salvageable. However the blades need to be changed. I look up how to do this with out the knife setting jig. I cannot buy one because it is out of stock. I learned how set planer knives with this video: http://www.youtu...

Making a Single Slab Table

223 days ago by Odysseus | 4 comments »

Here’s a photo story of how a beautiful sapele slab dining table came to be… I anxiously awaited my flawless sapele slab from a top-dollar dealer… How NOT to palletize a very expensive slab. The 60 inch by 10 foot sapele slab arrived in less than the perfect shape promised. Here it is unwrapped, beautiful, but problematic… Hmm… I would say that’s cupped and sawn pretty bad. Yikes! Not the 12/4 promised. I decided to sand this board rath...
