Jointer #2: De-rusting

07-10-2016 10:22 PM by mIps | 2 comments »

Well, I finally had a chance to start tackling the jointer cleanup. luckily the in/out-feed tables were fairly clean and had only light rust. I took two passes with rust cleaner on both and then a light sand with WD-40 as “lubricant”. They cleaned right up and look good. The cutter head is a different story. It’s more rusted and harder to clean. I did the best I could with a wire brush and a green scrub pad. I’ll know later if I helped any in getting the old blades ou...

Yet Another Craftsman 113 Saw Blog #6: Back to work

07-06-2016 08:34 PM by jonlruss | 0 comments »

I finally had a chance to get back to building a mobile workstation for my saw. After much back and forth I finally settled on my design. A few weeks ago the wife was gone for the weekend so I decided it was a good time to get started. That weekend the only thing I got done was the mobile base, but at least I felt like I was on my way. I kind of wavered on where to pick up next with it the following weekend and decided the router top extension wing made sense. I got to work on that, making th...

Entertainment Center #1: Carcass buidling

07-05-2016 03:08 AM by bkseitz | 0 comments »

Been busy with day job, so not much progress on existing projects. Two new projects added to my list (WEPs). Building a “Earthbox Planter” i.e., self watering raised bed planner box and a entertainment center for downstairs to hold games, books and videos. This weekend I finished out one of the carcasses for two of the three cabinets and nearly completed a second. These are again supersized ;-) Additionally I build a dual sided 8” saw board to handle full sh...

It’s been a while. I finally got around to spending a day editing. So here is part one of a simple build that turned out not to be so simple. Actually, the editing and putting together of the video was not that simple either….lol. View on YouTube

Stickley No. 622 Trestle Table #8: Attaching the Legs & Playing with Milk Paint

06-29-2016 11:14 AM by Tooch | 4 comments »

Before attaching the legs, I had a lot of work to do to prep the table top for finishing. Even though it was on the underside, I still wanted to eliminate all the dried glue, so I busted out the card scraper and got to work. Before: After: That’s a lot of chips! Last thing was to cut the top to final length, which I side using a Craftsmen circular saw. Although it was really getting bogged down on the 8/4” oak, it managed to get the job done. Then I predrille...

Current Project #33: Bathroom shelf rehab

06-29-2016 01:23 AM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

I think I’ve been using this particular series function wrong. I’m going to try it this way and see how it goes. This is a rehab of a shelf I built way back when. Follow along if you like, by watching this post. When I’m done I’ll post it as a finished project with appropriate details. We are currently freshening up our bathroom which gave me the opportunity to remove this shelf and give it some TLC. [Above] This gives you an idea of where I’m s...

Big Changes to the YouTube Channel!

06-28-2016 01:56 PM by Woodworker_Collins | 0 comments »

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7WtAFzQIVU So in the last month I realised that I needed to get my YouTube act together. I want to strive towards and to do this I realised I need to become more consistent and put my effort into social media! I want to aim towards at least a video every 2 weeks if not weekly while also putting more effort into the editing of the videos themselves. But I need your help, your sharing, commenting, rating and most importantly subscribing helps grow my...

New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #2: Restore & Install biesemeyer fence on the BandSaw

06-28-2016 04:48 AM by MikesProjects | 2 comments »

Be sure to check out the first part of this series where I get the saw & refurbish it… The old biesemeyer fence I am using was originally off a powermatic table saw. The shop I got it from had it set up on a saw that was used strictly for running dados. For that they cut the rails short & it only had a 18” rip capacity which worked out great for this bandsaw because I would have felt bad having to cut the rails down my self. I always feel bad modifying old vintage stuff, I...
