Season of shop upgrades #5: Jointer or Planer Sled - A Test

197 days ago by PJ72 | 1 comment »

Why build a planer sled simple, I don’t have a jointer. While I have had some success edge jointing with the table saw and router, a jointer has been on my wish list for some time to give me face jointing capability. For example, I wish I could have one, I wish I could afford one, and I wish I had room for one. Garage/Shop Conundrum Given my limited space and need for tool mobility and tool storage in order to park the cars in the garage, I have considered various options on ...

Toy Trucks Build #1: Day 1 - Basic Milling of Chassis

208 days ago by HerbC | 4 comments »

We have two young grandsons, Chance (almost 3) and Jaylan (6). I’ve decided to build a couple of toy trucks for them. For this project I’m using the truck featured in WoodSmith No 35 (Oct 84). Here’s a picture of the truck as featured in the magazine: Today I selected a piece of cypress to use to make the chassis of the trucks. The piece was rough sawn and 5/4 thickness. I used my Ridgid planer to surface the board and planed it down to 13/16” thickness. ...

Replacing the cutting head on a Ridgid R4330 with a Shelix head #1: Replacing the cutting head on a Rigid R4330 planer with a Shelix cutting head

211 days ago by b2rtch | 26 comments »

The first thing I want to say is: Shame on Byrd tools for not providing one word of instruction with the head or on their website.There is instruction with the head but they do not at all refer to this planer and I could not finds any instruction referring to this planer on their website. One pays well over $400.0 for this head and he/she is left on his/her own.This is not right! Be very careful while handling this head, the cutters are razor sharp This why I write this blog, to help ot...

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

214 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

220 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

222 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

230 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...

240 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...
