Extremely Average #58: A Measure of Time

1607 days ago by Ecocandle | 8 comments »

The outpouring of ideas from everyone has been incredibly helpful. I have been struggling with how I should get the router table to be flat, or at the very least to f sharp. So I sat at the piano and tickled the ivories. Many of you might be astonished to find that I play the piano; well you need not be, as I really don’t. When I turned 38, and realized it had been 20 years since I had graduated high school, it seemed that it was just about time to get my midlife crisis underway. I...

Extremely Average #47: Inspired by Ziggy

1618 days ago by Ecocandle | 15 comments »

I believe it was Virgil who said, “They are able because they think they are able.” When I say I believe, what I really mean is that I googled famous sayings and found it waiting there for me. Saying ‘I believe’, is simply me having delusions of well read. I seem to remember Stevie Wonder saying, “We all have ability. The difference is how we use it.” It was a warm day in June I believe. Ok, I made that last part up. Back in the day, I used to hang out with David Bowie and Bout...

Flea Market Scores

1619 days ago by Jeison | 6 comments »

Dropped by the local weekend flea market on Sunday, just thought I’d kill a few minutes sharing some of the goodies I picked up…. (thats right, its “sharing” not “bragging” lol!) A B&D twin-screw benchtop clamping thingy I got for $4, looks damn handy, tho those metal jaws are pretty ragged, figure prolly remove em and either sand down the plastic jaws smooth or epoxy on some hardwood ones. .... A Craftsman benchtop router table, got it fo...

Extremely Average #40: To Build or Not To Build

1625 days ago by Ecocandle | 21 comments »

A while back I talked about my desire to buy or build a router table. Today I have decided. I will build. It will be glorious. The factors that influenced my decision were many; quality, precision, flatness of the table, and to some extent cost. When I weighed all the factors the scales were greatly tilted in favor of buying either the Incra super system or the Veritas system. I choose to build, because I wanted to. In a day or two, the router plate I ordered will arrive. This w...

Shop Stuff. #4: Getting Started (Finally)

1628 days ago by rsmith71 | 6 comments »

Finally getting past ideas and starting to work on what I want to do with my garage/shop. I’ve been looking for ideas and drawing stuff up, trying to decide what I wanted and where to start. I couldn’t really decide where to start so I spent last night building face frames for 4 of the cabinets (router table, workbench, scroll saw & bandsaw bench, & a mobile stand for benchtop tools). Frames are done and now to start cutting sheet goods. I clamped the 3 frames for the r...

Unisaw Torsion Box Fence Table #2: End Grain Veneer Top (or "What did I get myself into")

1642 days ago by Ger21 | 2 comments »

I mentioned in the previous entry, my intent to use an 1/8” endgrain veneer on the table top. Rather than dive in head first (and break my neck), I thought it might be a god idea to make a small sample to test the viablility of this. I cut a few pieces of endgrain birch, and glued them up on some scrap Extira. A few days ago, I applied the epoxy, pouring it on, and warming it with a heat gun to thin it, and allow better penetration, as the goal is to have it fully penetrated and bond...

Delta Unisaw

1648 days ago by GrandsonOfRue | 3 comments »

This is my grandfather’s 1967 Delta Unisaw. It sat for years after his death from the time I was about 10 till I was in my first house at 25. Took minimal clean up and was ready to go. It had the original fence so I purchased a Delta upgrade. Not as nice as the Beisemeyer but not as expensive either. It was an easy bolt on and was exact right out of the box. You can also see my Jessem Miter which is a fantastic Miter. I run Freud blades and between these three upgrades the cuts on th...

Unisaw Torsion Box Fence Table #1: Building the box

1648 days ago by Ger21 | 3 comments »

My old fence extension table was just a piece of 3/4” MDF with plastic laminate on top. 8+ years with a PC7518 hanging from it put a pretty good sag in it. I reinforced it with some 1×6 poplar, but that was a temporary fix. Since it’s my main router table, I need something extremely flat, so I can do precision work with it. The plan is to build a torsion box table. I’ll be using the existing steel angle at the Unifence and outfeed table to support the front and back. Th...

Tall Oak Mirror ... getting warmer :-)

1696 days ago by NBeener | 22 comments »

I’m so close! The clamps are holding the oak backer board on … which is holding the mirror in place. The top oak trim cap is just sitting there. The bottom trim cap was a no-show on photo day. It looks suspiciously like the top piece. BUT … I’m almost done! The trim blocks (the four corner pieces that surround the frame) are glued on. I’m going to run the top and bottom edges through my jointer, along with the top and bottom cap pieces … just to ...
