How to find and harvest legal burls!

1732 days ago by OregonBurls | 37 comments »

Hey everyone, It was suggested that I start a discussion on how to find and harvest burls. Please give your input also. I don’t deal with straight grain that often. I cut and sell burls for a living so here is what I know. It is illegal to harvest a burl without permission. of course if it is on your own property you can give yourself permission. What I do is put an ad on Craig’s list saying I want your burls. Most people don’t know what burls are. So you don’t get that many calls....

Router Table Insert for my Table Saw

1732 days ago by Jimi_C | 14 comments »

Mentioned this in a comment yesterday, and got started on it last night. I’m creating a router table insert for my Craftsman table saw using 1/2” sheets of MDF laminated together. There’s also a 1” strip glued vertically across the bottom on one edge (like an I-beam) for extra support. Here it is,glued up: Alternate title: meticulously sealing my MDF topped bench one drop of glue at a time :D You can see my table saw in the background. The bottom sheet is...

Fold Down Outfeed Table

1735 days ago by davidroberts | 9 comments »

I built this fold down outfeed talbe about two years ago and it still going strong. I give the design credit to Jim Becker at http://sawsndust.com/p-outfeed.htm He provides a plan sheet on his website. I did modify his design a bit to suite my needs. This is what I had in mind when I started to think about the project. I just happened upon Jim’s site, and I’m glad I did. He attached the OFT using 45 degree supports attached to the back of his TS, to eliminate those pesk...

Wall Hung Console #8: Mortises and Tenons

1737 days ago by captkerk | 3 comments »

I got a little work done on the console which was to cut the mortises in the three brackets and the tenons in the aprons and mounting board. All the tenons fit with a snug slip-fit. In the dry assembly run I did notice that the shoulders of the tenons could fit more precisely, so a little more chisel work is in order. Once I’m satisfied with the fit of the tenons, I will start on doing the purpleheart inlays. I’m planning to rout a groove on the end...

Boat building #1: In need of spiritual applicant with free plans

1748 days ago by threehands | 2 comments »

Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...

Router Table Cabinet

1751 days ago by 559dustdesigns | 26 comments »

This is a router table I’m working on for my shop. I was able to incorporate most the features I needed and plan to use it often. It isn’t finished but most the major parts are in place. I purchased the Incra twin linear, router table top, woodpeckers router lift and the porter cable 7518 motor from Woodpeckers Inc back in 2002 or 2003. Finally, she’s in working order. Since the last post I was able to complete the rear ...

Projects #3: Kitchen Island

1755 days ago by NedB | 8 comments »

Buddy of mine gave me a chunk of bowling alley earlier this year. I was going to make Something out of it, and my wife asked if I would make a rolling kitchen island to replace our kitchen table. It needed a little cleanup on the ends, and I lucked out, only barely nicking this nail with a router bit. The plan is for it to be counter height: I decided to do a decorative treatment on the ends of the rails, somewhat ‘greene and greene’ influenced, but just out o...

Spring cleaning in Fall still no fun !!!!!!!!

1755 days ago by Built2Last | 2 comments »

A couple of days ago I decided it was time to build a rack to organize my nuts, bolts, screws, washers and other fasteners. I don’t know how I got so many but man, they are everywhere. As I sort thru them I am listing them and anything else I either don’t need, use or have more than one of on ebay. So far I’ve listed over 75 items I think and still have more to go. A couple of items are either rare or expensive like a Starrett calibrated master square set (http://cgi.ebay.co...
