Catamaran Cupboard Door Remake... #6: Update...profiles.

02-02-2011 05:43 AM by degoose | 12 comments »

Taken longer than expected..due to the additional steps to each of these doors…and the fact that I keep putting it off… sidetracked with other projects.. As you can see all the mortices and tenons have been cut…[using the Leight FMT] I have also cut the Chamfers on the inside edges of the door frames… this was done with a piloted chamfering router bit while the frames were clamped together… You will also notice that I have taken the time and effort to ma...

52 Weeks #4: What a long Week....

01-31-2011 03:22 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

Greeting to anyone that is reading. It has been a long week. Due to a major incident at work I got very little time in the shop this week. I did however manage to demo an entire room at work so maybe that will count as some extra time. I did get enough time to complete what I was working on on Sunday when I got the call from work. A coworker had this little Chrstmas type tree that she liked to display, unfortunatly she had bumped into it and knocked it over knocking it off of the base. The or...

Router Table Extension Wing #2: Day 2

01-30-2011 05:53 AM by HungryTermite | 0 comments »

After the snag of the previous day I picked up a Milwaukee 7/8” hole saw. I was not happy that I had to buy an extra tool for this project but I have to say I was pretty happy with the saw. It cut aluminum really well and has a replaceable arbor so it wont cost too much if I need different sizes. Let me say, this would have been a lot easier if I hadn’t already drilled holes in the rail. Without a hole for the pilot bit to ride in, the saw really wanted to jump around. I cu...

Necklace Box #1: The first couple months

01-28-2011 06:15 PM by superstretch | 3 comments »

In September, I started coming up with ideas for my wife’s Christmas present. The short of it is—I haven’t finished it yet. Fortunately, it was a minor part of all that I was getting/making her, so she didn’t go without this Christmas. Part of my problem is that I’m still a greenhorn and purpleheart is a jerk to work with. Tearout, checking, and pitting is something I’ve had to deal with non-stop. For the past two weeks, my shop (no heating) has been bel...

Jigsaw table

01-28-2011 07:30 AM by devann | 2 comments »

Here’s the smallest table in my shop. I built it because I needed to cut small radius with my jigsaw and didn’t want to be cutting into my workbench. There’s not much to it. Four legs, a 4×4 with some pocket holes at the top to attach a small piece of replaceable plywood to. Besides using for cuttig with the jigsaw, I use it when I want to drill a hole through something and I don’t want a hole in my workbench. It also comes in handy for routing smaller pieces usei...

Leonard Street Workshop #4: New Tool- Router Table

01-26-2011 06:04 PM by tyskkvinna | 18 comments »

Yesterday I got a new tool for the workshop. It’s nothing too exciting. It’s the $99 Ryobi router table from Home Depot. I’ve had extremely good luck in the past with Ryobi tools, and I personally wanted a little router table so this was the first item on the list of things to get. It’s pretty light duty which is just fine. If we have anything heavy duty it can be done on the CNC sheet router. I’m thinking this will come in handy for boxes, small projec...

Triton Router Update!

01-26-2011 06:21 AM by thiel | 3 comments »

Gang, A while ago I posted this blog entry (http://lumberjocks.com/thiel/blog/14521) about how I needed to replace the worm drive in my Triton table router since it had stripped. Triton (having been purchased by HTC tools) sent me out the new part with no questions asked, and I’d found an excellent description of the replacement process online. At the time, a couple of us noted that a nylon part for a worm gear seemed like a bad idea… and no surprise when six months later...

Stupidity or How to Destroy a Dado Max in Easy Stroke

01-26-2011 06:04 AM by bigfish_95008 | 3 comments »

Sunday I had the Dado Max out to cut some dados in a box that the scroll saw will sit on – the scroll saw stand is just to tall. I set up the first dado and it cut beautifully and then disaster struck, as Lowell Thomas would say, instead of turning the router off and unplunging the previously plunged router I lifted it out of the fixture, running at 25000 rpms and about an 1.5” of bit exposed – almost. The bit caught on the edge of the fixture lifting it off the clamp and st...

Stickley High Chest #3: Request for advice on dovetailed drawer slides

01-24-2011 08:42 PM by Greg | 1 comment »

I am going to start in on making my dovetail drawer slides today. I haven’t found much info on LJ or the rest of the web on tips, tricks, and rules of thumb. I made up a couple practice slides the other day and they seem to work well (unmounted), but I still have some questions: 1. How many slides (under mounted) should I use? An antique dresser we have uses one down the center and a newer dresser we have has two. The drawer size on both are approximately the same. The drawers ...

gloat and question

01-24-2011 07:16 PM by darrenjttu | 9 comments »

I just picked up a 2 1/4 hp Porter Cable router from HD. It was on clearance for 99 but since the only one they had left was the display I got it for $50.00! Pics to prove it. I have a 690 and am wondering if I should sell it. I dont really need two routers for a small shop. How much should I sell the 690 for?
