Gil-Bilt 18" Band Saw build #6: Wheels, tensioner, etc.

08-24-2016 01:38 PM by mountainaxe | 0 comments »

Last night I used a jigsaw to fabricate the pieces that make up the top wheel cover and supports based on the full sized templates. I attached the tensioner to the back piece and then attached it to the support column with screws/bolts using two horizontal supports. I made a slight modification to this piece by adding a spring; this should take some of the tension off the structure itself when the blade is tightened. I also installed the previously built drive shaft assembly ...

Cherry finger jointed box #4: Bottom panel and other things

08-23-2016 07:30 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, I was going to clear a path to my mitresaw bench, but. I’d have to move a lot of “stuff” out of the way, just to use that mitre saw clear back by the wall, just for these three cuts? Well, THAT ain’t going to happen, so how about I clear off the bench’s top, and add a smaller mitre saw there? One, I unfold the GEM, add four screws to attach it to the bench’s top. That saw was way too big. And, must have been a thicker saw used at some po...

Gil-Bilt 18" Band Saw build #5: The table

08-23-2016 06:08 PM by mountainaxe | 1 comment »

The tilting table took more time and consideration than I’d expected. First, I decided to make the table by laminating two pieces of 1/2” plywood with sandwiched strips of flat-iron, ala “Mr. Sawdust.” This will ensure I have no future warping. So the table is basically two pieces, that when combined, measure about 24” x 28”...a big work surface. The table is mounted to the saw via two hinges; the table has notches that I cut out by hand and filed with ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1766: Return to Fairyland

08-23-2016 12:23 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Who doesn't like to daydream sometimes? Who doesn't like to allow their thoughts to wander to places impossible to visit? As children, we learn to daydream from the many stories and fairy tales we are told and read about. We visit fantastic places, where nothing is impossible and characters are not always human. We hear of mermaids, wizards, and other magical creatures that take on a personality and life that can only occur in our imaginations. It is wonderful and fascinating all...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1765: Busy Hands . . .

08-22-2016 01:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

The busier that I get, the more I want to do.  Why does it work that way?  I never understood the concept of "boredom." Even at a young age. With an entire world of things to do for work, leisure and fun, I don't know how anyone could feel that they were bored. I suppose it is the way we approach things and life in general. I am always amazed at how quickly time seems to pass. If I had one thing that I could change in this world, it would be to slow things down a ...

Cherry finger jointed box #3: Stanley got his groove back

08-22-2016 02:46 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, I had the plane set up, might as well see what it can do You have keep an eye peeled, and watch the fence. Otherwise, the plane will wander off to the side. Candle wax helps the plane to slide along better. I got to the point that only the thumb was near the knob, three fingers were shoving against the fence. LIGHT cuts help, too, at least in this stuffFinally got all four sides done, and the grooves even matched! And, by cutting through only half the width of the “fin...

Chain saw milling....I hope...LOL! #2: CHAINSAW MILL MADNESS!!!!!

08-22-2016 02:29 AM by DocSavage45 | 14 comments »

Chainsaw Mill Madness (Blog) This was written in 2015 and I intended to post it, but time gets away. I’m posting this in memory of a fellow Lumberjock who’s avatar was “Dallas.” His work is still here although he passed away in late fall /early winter. He and I shared a crazy idea, but he made it work for him. Using a 50 cc Poulan ProChainsaw on a Panther Pro Alaskan chainsaw mill. This is my story of Murphy,Dallas, and ignorant me. Hey lumberjock’s! Some of you may have no...

Cedar Driveway Gate #9: Chamfer, Channel, Weep Holes, and Drawbore

08-21-2016 05:46 AM by WoodHoarder | 1 comment »

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted on this project to I’d like to catch up with the progress. Last time I posted, another lumberjock mentioned a concern with a lack of diagonal bracing. I’ve been seriously looking into altering the design to make sure I cover this issue. I posted in the forum and received some pretty great feedback. Here is the link if anyone is interested: http://lumberjocks.com/topics/167994 So moving on, I needed to do some detail work the edges....

Cherry finger jointed box #2: A little bit more done...

08-21-2016 04:15 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Before the storms came through. Shop is closed down, due to a creek running across the floor. Floor drain working good, just was a LOT of rain outside. Had to stop for supper, anyway. Sooo, what all DID I get done? Well, I hauled the Stanley #45 down the stairs,and even brought along that new bottle of glue. Marked out for more finger joints, as I had two more corners to do. Hands were sore from all the handsaw work, so I used the bandsaw instead.. Then clamp it to the ben...
