Here is another video in our time lapse woodworking series, this time around I’m re-sawing a 13’’ 8/4 solid Canadian Black Walnut board about 33’’ long into 4 pieces that need to end up 3/8’’ thick. These will be the panels in a frame and panel center divider for a shelving unit we’re building for a display for a local store. First I throw on a new blade, I’m just using a 3/8’’ blade from our local band saw blade place cal...

I am not sure how much time I’ll have for this project, so I’m taking every moment I can and do baby steps to hopefully drive this thing through. Last night I went and picked up what boards seem to be most fitting for this project that will yield the best materials for the parts. The toolbox is 10” deep, but I did not find anything that wide. the widest I have is 8” so I’ll have to make some glue ups for full width boards. I did get a good selection of mahogan...
Had some good progress on the garage reorganization, Although it may not look like it. To start, I wanted to tackle all the medium sized lumber that was now roaming around, scattered on the floor in various locations as it no longer had a dedicated place. I had 4 kitchen cabinets that I got off of craigslist a couple of years ago hoping it’ll help me get organized, but in the end, it just took wall space, and didn’t prove to be very useful, as it was just left as is, and ended ...
Last blog was too long on words. Pictures tell the whole story. Mark the wood with triangles to keep them aligned, resaw a little over the thickness you desire, run each through the planer at the same thickness and bookmatch the parts. Note: if you are using real thick wood like 8/4, you can slice four pieces and have enough material for two boxes.
Okay, I took a break from the Slat clock to make a Spagnuolo Contemporary Clock and that was an adventure in mitres. After taking some time to reorganize the shop and do a cleanup, I got back at the Slat Clock that I’ve been working on. My plan calls for a 8 1/2” clock face and the material I had chosen is maple as I picked some up at a discount from a retired table maker. The score on that buy was that it has some minor spalting in some areas. At least I think it’s sp...
Today we resawed some 3’’ wormy soft maple I had extra from my rocking chair project into 1/2’’ drawer sides. The largest was about 12’’ tall were using a MM20 / Driftmaster / Resaw master blade must say what a great combo. We are also re-sawing some 1’’ old growth southern yellow pine to 3/8’’ for the door and drawer fronts, I actually gummed up a blade and had to remove it for cleaning. I did some reading and also remembered we ...
Now that I have my web site in order, I have had time to resume working on videos. Here is the link and the writeup:Band Saw Blade DriftAll too often band saw blade drift is a phenomenon that vexes woodworkers who are new to resawing on the band saw, more...
A couple of months ago, I bought this bandsaw off Craigslist. It’s a great little Grizzly BS. A couple of weeks ago I bought about 50 bd ft of Black Walnut from a fella at First Monday Trade Days in Canton, TX for only $2.00 a bd ft. (killer deal). I think I forgot how big the opening is for my BS. Looks like I’ll be buying a riser block and new BS blades now. I’m going to use this lumber to build a baby crib..
This project is a fine example of the 80/20 concept. it takes 20% of the project time to complete 80% of it, and then, 80% of the project time to finish the last 20% of the project. As it gets to the details, things take longer to think through, plan out, cut…mill…glue… and finesse. this time it’s the leg vise Chop, and although not completely finished (still need to trim, round off, and apply BLO), it’s construction is done. I was originally planning to us...
