Yet Another Craftsman 113 Saw Blog #2: Short Update

08-03-2015 04:09 PM by jonlruss | 1 comment »

Not much to add. Haven’t gotten to put in as much time on the saw as I’ve wanted the last few days what with the non-woodworking parts of my life getting in the way. Got the miter slot aligned with the blade as well as I could using a very uncooperative combination square. I have a dial indicator, but need to make a base for it that’ll fit in the miter slot. Just using the combo square the slot was a good 1/16” off which from cuts I had made on it before bringing it ho...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1599: Getting Back At It

08-03-2015 10:57 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Last week was not one of my usual weeks. Between getting the new computer and the issues I was having with my back, I felt that I didn't really accomplish a great deal. I have been writing here for over five years now, and I think this was the first time in all those years that I was here at home and took so much time 'off'. But sometimes it is needed. I always try to be positive and productive and have something interesting to write about. With the week that I had, I thought it b...

07-30-2015 11:03 PM by DocSavage45 | 13 comments »

CHARLES NEIL BANDSAW RESAWING JIG II FOR RESAWING OR SLICING VENEER ON THE SMALL BANDSAW Yep, fellow lumberjock’s another jig for resawing in a small shop from Charles Neil’s video on resawing, which can be found now on his website if you want to see this in action. Several years ago Charles made a DVD on resawing, which I have. I think I asked him to make it, maybe not. But all the credit goes Charles.I’m doing a small blog here on this which I posted as a project. I...

Got to get this thing done! Spent the whole day, fixing the door with a handplane. Added cleats to hold a floor Then cut and install a couple floor boards Didn’t have enough plywood. Planks are 1/2”. Screwed in place,but no glue. Got the corner blocks all installedI can then cut slotted holes. Just drill a hole in center of the block, then rock the drill back and forth towards the sides. This allows the top to expand and contract as it wants. A single screw in ...

curly cherry finish tests

07-30-2015 09:20 PM by harum | 4 comments »

In an attempt to find a finish for curly cherry I have run some tests. I am looking for a finish that (a) brings out the chatoyance, (b) keeps the cherry color close to the natural, and (b) doesn’t muddy up the grain (keeps its contrast). Here are the results so far on the same board sanded to grit 150. Four different schedules oriented top to bottom (Note: no topcoat so far!): (a) two coats of ruby shellac 1 lb. cut;(b) two coats of “Zinsser SealCoat” shellac;(c...

Yet Another Craftsman 113 Saw Blog #1: And so it begins...

07-29-2015 03:15 PM by jonlruss | 1 comment »

So after several years of wanting a shop building, or to at least be able to set up a small shop in the garage, the garage option presented itself and I’ve been working towards making part of one side of the garage into something usable for woodworking. I’d finally reached the goal I’d been trying to get to, which is having it to the point I could bring my dad’s table saw to the house so I can actually get some projects going. Like so many others, my dad had bought a C...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1598: Down but not Out

07-29-2015 12:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I was really and truly writing my blog yesterday when some pretty impressive storms rolled in. Even though I am in the process of replacing the main components of my computer (motherboard, processor, memory, main drive) I really didn't want anything to happen to my current computer. I am awaiting delivery of the new SSD drive, and Keith should be changing things over in the next several days.  The board arrived on Monday: It should be a nice change, although it will be a bit of a ...

End Table project #6: A test fit, and some assembly

07-29-2015 02:36 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Moving right along, now. I checked the narrow panel end for square…..zero to 1/4” along one side, zero to 1/16” along the other side. Circular saw to rough the wider one back to square, not going to worry about the barely there one. Clamped the panel into the leg vise, added a clamp out in front, #5-1/2 jack plane to joint the edge. I think I can try a test fit of all the built-so-far parts.. As for that top laying under everything?, well, the #5-1/2 went to town...
