Just added a PinnAcle fence and dust ports

1576 days ago by sandhill | 10 comments »

I have been wanting to get this project completed for some time and now its on its way to being done. I built this about a year ago and it had served well but it was difficult to set up without a fence until now. I picked up the PinnAcle fence on closeout at Wood Craft and got the dust port parts while I was there as well. I had the T-Slots so I put them in and I will make some feather boards tomorrow and install the front T-Slot for that T-slot then one day this week I will go back to Wood C...

Jigs and techniques #1: Cheap & Simple Mortise Jig

1577 days ago by GregD | 2 comments »

What should be the first entry in this series is my really simple table saw panel cutting and edge jointing jig. This is my my take on a mortise jig for a plunge router. I wanted to keep it as simple to build and as inexpensive as possible, but I also wanted it to produce good results for a rookie because I was going to use it for my first attempt and a M&T joint. Now that I’ve verified that it works well, I’ll probably add a toggle clamp or two for holding the work. T...

Shop Tools #1: Increasing my collection of shop tools.

1584 days ago by LarryDNJR | 3 comments »

I went to a guy in Powell, OH about a router and table for $75 total I seen on craigslist. While I was there he also had unopened and unused belt/disc sander and scroll saw. He was asking $200 for all 4 items but settled on $150. I got a Craftsman Router 17504 1-1/2hp, Craftsman Router Table 25483, Delta 1” Belt/8” Disc Sander and Delta 16” Variable Speed Scroll Saw. Works out to roughly $38 per item. Not bad I think even though they are somewhat older items, but ne...

Why is building a small cabinet such a pain?

1586 days ago by technicallymark | 1 comment »

I’ve looked at books for new woodworkers that laid out several different projects to build various skill sets. I like the concept, but enjoy being creative when it comes to thinking about projects to build. My first project was a woodworking bench from FWW last summer. I put the hobby on hold as far as building goes, but read and watched as much as I could and even took a class at my local Woodcraft store. So I’ve had a great deal of time to think about what kind of projects I...

Getting started.

1590 days ago by Builder_Bob | 3 comments »

I recently finished building a federal style card table loosely patterned after the plan in FWW issue #59, “Federal Card Table” by Michael Dunbar. That table in turn is based on a piece from the period, thought to be from Baltimore. I still consider myself a newbie, and was shocked at how well the finished table came out! Now I’m going to make a second table with a few improvements. If you’d like to follow along I can promise you that we will take an interesting and unconve...

Unisaw Torsion Box Fence Table #6: Almost ready to mount

1600 days ago by Ger21 | 5 comments »

I lost count, but I think I have now applied about 12 coats of polyurethane. Nearly 1/2 gallon. After about 7 coats, the endgrain finally stopped soaking it in. So at that point, I basically had a 3/32” thick “plastic” top, as hard as a butcher block. Which is exactly what I wanted. I tried to put the poly on as thick as possible, sanding down all the high spots between coats. After the 7 coats, I realized it wasn’t as flat as I’d like, as I was sanding th...

Building our own washer, dryer pedestals. #2: Some progress pictures.

1602 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 22 comments »

I’ve been poking along with this project, fitting it in with other chores around the house. It seems like as a person gets older, it takes more time to get anything done, but it gradually gets done.. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~After attaching the side panels, I glued in a piece of foam pad as a silencer. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ To stretch my plywood, plus protect the ply edges, I glued ...
