Light at the end of the tunnel

11-13-2010 04:37 AM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

Yes, there’s light at the end of the tunnel and it’s not a freight train. I was able to make really good progress on the router table/outfeed extension today. Here’s how it looks so far; I appologize for the quality of the picture, I had to use my phone. By adding this I now have 21” more width and an additional 9” of outfeed. You can see the rough cut out where the router will go. Having reached this point I can now start planning for the cabinet tha...

Out with the old, in with the new!

11-12-2010 04:52 AM by nobuckle | 0 comments »

Table saw tune up is something that no matter what seems to take me forever. I spent probably four hours making the various adjustments neccessary to make accurate cuts. Granted the bulk of that was removing my TS fence rail in order to reposition it a little (I only raised it 1/8”). When I originally put the fence rail on it was too low. This caused my fence to bind and it really became a pain. So off it came so I could elongate the mounting holes. I’m pleased with the resu...

Not what was planned but more than expected

11-10-2010 11:42 PM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

If you’ve been following this blog at all you’ll know that I’ve been working on adding a router table top to my table saw. Many of you have provided very helpful insight. Well, things have take a serious turn for the better. What started out as a just a router table top has turned into an outfeed table as well. I was seeking the advice of a friend the other day and the next thing I know we’re in his shop totally revamping my original ideas. The only problem is tha...

Episode 84 Entertainment Center Part 5

11-09-2010 06:00 AM by kosta | 9 comments »

Episode 84 Entertainment Center Part 5 from kostas workshop on Vimeo.In this episode I finish the entertainment center. I go over some changes I made to the top panel. Then I work on the 2 in tall base. The base sits 1-1/2 in from the edge of the entertainment center all the way around. Then I glued up all the parts. I didnt get as much video from the final glue up as I wanted to because I was really rushing towards the end of the contest. Overall this was a pretty good project took about 180...

Mitre guage slot / Router table insert size

11-08-2010 06:17 AM by nobuckle | 1 comment »

Over the past few days I’ve been working on adding a router table to my tablesaw. Things have been coming along fairly well. I’ve been able to receive alot of wonder help from various LJ subscribers for which I am very thankful. I now have some other decisions to make and I need your help. Decision 1. What size should I make the router insert plate? Most I’ve seen are about 9” x 12”. One author said to make the insert plate as small as possible without m...

Learning the hard way (revisited)

11-08-2010 02:41 AM by nobuckle | 3 comments »

I haven’t done much today. The only thing I did was to reglue the piece I cut off yesterday back on to the router table top. About 3:00 AM EST I realized that I cut off to much and didn’t leave enough material for the mitre guage slot. It didn’t turn out to bad but it irritates me that I didn’t think of this before I made the cut. Oh well. What’s more is that I stained my table saw surface with glue that bled though the news papaer that I had under my glue u...

Using the Dadowiz for sturdy shelves

11-07-2010 05:18 PM by Bob #2 | 7 comments »

One of the most difficult operations in my shop has been lining up dadoes consistently through two boards.The most,common operation for this is to make book shelves that must bear considerable weight without warping.The example shown here shows how I would go about ensuring my accuracy and controlling the depth of cut using a device called Dadowiz. for more information on this technique please see my bloghere:http://mywoodadventures.blogspot.com/2010/11/dowelmax-for-routered-dados.html

So far so good

11-07-2010 03:09 AM by nobuckle | 0 comments »

Had a pretty good day today. I finally decided to stop for the day, seeing that i’ve been up since 5:30 AM EST. I was able to obtain the angle aluminum that is required from a friend of mine. It’s good to have friends that are willing to donate to your cause. On the way back from my friends house I stopped by my local Woodcraft store to pick up the t-track for the mitre slot and was pleasantly surprised to find Scott Phillips from the American Woodshop there. He was there to ...

Making Progress ( I think!)

11-06-2010 05:14 PM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

I was up before dawn this morning. 5:30 AM EST is too early in the morning to wake up with an unfinished project on your mind. You’ve probably been there too. Anyway, I got out to the shop about 7:30 or so and decided to finish attaching my left-hand table saw extension to the right side of the saw. The cast iron extension did not have any mounting holes drilled into on the left side so I had to take some time to lay them out and drill them. I wasn’t able to use my drill pres...

Router table top for my table saw

11-06-2010 12:08 AM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

This picture shows a possible solution to attaching my router table top to my table saw. The aluminum rail attaches to the saw and the top attaches to the rail. I can’t take credit for the idea, that goes to LJ joeE. Thanks joeE.
