WoodForTheTrees Blog #3: Summer Bummer!

421 days ago by WoodForTheTrees | 0 comments »

Blah, summer schlummer! I have somewhat of a problem next week. As you may have read in my previous blog posts, I am a furniture making student and whereas most students look forward to their summer break, I am dreading it. I have 10 terrible weeks away from woodworking….or do I? I have several non-woodworking commitments I have to dedicate myself to throughout the summer break such as continuing my Swedish language course, a wedding and oh yeah…I need to renovate my apar...

Machinist Toolcart #12: Spoken Too Soon: A Lesson in Drawer Planning/Measuring/Fitting

1049 days ago by PurpLev | 5 comments »

As I was fitting the drawer fronts yesterday I noticed that the fronts are being located with their bottoms pretty much aligned with the bottom of the drawers which made me think – shouldn’t there be some overlay there? but I digressed and went on about it…. Looking back – I guess there should have been an overlay after all! See, when I originally planned the drawers I setup a (from the bottom) 6” drawer followed by 2 5” drawers … and each drawe...

Hello everyone, i’m really hoping someone can shed some light on this problem for me. I have an older craftsman Jointer/Planer that is in great working condition, however it has one major problem. Even though the infeed and outfeed tables are parallel when i push a board through it raises up off the outfeed table. Hopefully the pictures below will help…...

Tree growth "vortex"

1141 days ago by tswoodwizard | 3 comments »

OK, maybe all of my wood-tec type friends out on LJ,s can help me figure this out. I’ve allways been fascinated with the dynamics of curing and drying wood after the harvesting process. One to overcome is of cource the growth vortex that occures in some species and not in others. One question I have is this, Is there a right-hand vortex that occures above the equator as opposed to a left hand one bellow the equator? When a tree wiggles and struggles up out of the grownd, It also “...

Laguna Tools Jointer Planer Combo and Bandsaw My Worst Nightmare In Progress

1530 days ago by Caleb James | 30 comments »

I recently purchased a 16” jointer planer combo and 18” 3000 Series Bandsaw from Laguna Tools. It has turned into my worst nightmare. I have spent $6,245.83 on this order. It arrived damaged and I properly noted it on the freight bill. I contacted laguna about the most obvious damage to the band saw. The upper flywheel had come apart in shipping. I rebuilt it and it seems to work fine now. My nightmare starts really with the jointer. In short this machine should edge join using...

Rottenstone Problems

1651 days ago by GoGoZRX | 0 comments »

http://www.blackroses.com/~skip/woodturning/problems/ I picked up some 4F pumice and some rottenstone… I sanded to 400, then used the pumice. I put some of the paraffin oil on a rag, and sprinkled on the pumice. Needless to say, I was quite surprised when the white powder turned ashy, but I cranked up the speed on the lathe and went at it. In short order, the surface was gleaming!“I can’t wait to try out the rottenstone!” Or so I thought… it seems to have gotten into the ?pores? of the ...

Bowling Alley Workbench #12: All is not lost... or is it? HELP!!!!!!!

1824 days ago by PurpLev | 21 comments »

I was working on fitting the skirt to the front of the bench, and it looks fantastic. in order to get to the final dimensions of 30” width of the top, I’m missing 1/8” extra material between the benchtop and the skirt to fill in the gap, while keeping the skirt flush with the legs fronts. so far so good. while fitting the skirt to the legs, I noticed that the gap on the left side of the bench is larger than the right side… a quick reach to the tape measure confirmed...

while doing a dry fit to take measurements for drawers and drawer guides disaster struck. After the measurements were taken and I was in the process of disasembling the chest I lost control of some of the parts. the back of the chest fell to its death and broke in two at the tounge and grove joint. this has stopped the next step of the project in its tracks. Now I must fix this problem before I continue. the next intery will be called the reasurection. Heers some pics.
