Making the garage a shop #4: Nothing picture worthy, but more movement forward.

02-24-2011 04:42 AM by Shawn K. | 3 comments »

The last few days have been exceptional as far as moving forward on the shop. Monday saw more cleaning, and organization, getting the last bit of organization to be done to the lathe bench. I have a concrete floor in the garage apparently. The Orange BORG yielded storage bins, electric supplies for two 20 amp circuits, and the expansion of my 15 amp legs for lights, etc. Apparently my new table saw will work on 15amps, so I’m not too hurried to get that taken care of. Tuesday...

Craftsman Table Saw 28462 #3: Bars are in

05-20-2011 02:31 AM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 3 comments »

The aluminum bar stock arrived and I got a big surprise. The 5/8” wide piece fit snugly in the bottom of the track with very little wobble/slop. The surprise was the 3/8” x 1/2” stock. It also fit nicely between the tabs – when I turned the 1/2” side between the slots.. Stacked together, the are a very nice solution with just a small amount above the table. I could probably bolt them together and easily make a sled that spans the blade and rides above th...

A while back, my Son and and his fiance’ commissioned a “Treasure Box” to hold the best wishes of the people attending their upcoming wedding and receptions (yes 2, 1 in the Seattle area where she is from and 1 in So Cal where He is from, small wedding ceremony to be held in San Francisco) That is the why, now for the what.

NOT your average screen door: more chopping work

10-12-2014 05:49 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Time to work on the other rail. Cleared the bench of the other items, they found a home on the panel blanks for now. Someone asked about the use of Visegrip Finger clamps Well, they work very nicely for the mortise jig I have. Anyway, a little better layout this time around. Last time, the mortises were too close to the ends. NORMALLY, one would leave a “horn” on each end, then saw off the excess when things were done. OOPS, well, I decided to move the mortise IN a ...

Multi-Functional Tablesaw Cabinet #2: The Work Continues

07-13-2009 10:09 PM by Derby | 3 comments »

Progress continues on my Multi-functional Tablesaw Cabinet. Router bit storage will be in six (6) drawers, two ¼” shank and four ½” shank. There is one 3” deep drawer for storing wrenches and such and a chase for routing the wires. Drawer pulls are simply 1” drywall screws until I get the fancier drawer fronts completed. Taking a cue from the plans I got from Norm, I added dust collector capabilities from the router chamber. I still need to add a knob/pull to the oak and ...

Dovetail Saw Rehab #1: Dovetail Saw Rehab

05-25-2010 05:48 AM by docholladay | 3 comments »

I picked up an old dovetail saw at a flea market a while back. It was in kind of rough shape in some ways, but it cuts well. The handle had obviously been damaged. I actually think the hand was not original to the saw, although it probably is the correct style. Anyway, I decided that I would try to make a new handle for the saw. I downloaded a template for this style of saw handle from Gramercy Tools website. I took some rosewood and beech wood that I had and glued up a blank to make a ...

The Craftsman's Path #58: Sculpted Rocking Chair - Laminating the Rockers and Back Braces

03-04-2009 12:15 AM by Mark Mazzo | 3 comments »

Moving on from the work of roughing out components, it was time for some laminations. After making the forms I went to work with lots of thin strips in hand to create the rockers and back braces for the chair. The glue-filled process is covered in the latest post on my blog. Thanks for reading!
