Split Top Roubo Bench Build #9: Finishing up the tail vise

03-19-2015 12:57 AM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

Yesterday the last thing I did was cut up that big walnut board and laminate two pieces for the leg vise. Took it out of the clamps this morning and I think I’ll wait for this Sunday before going forward with it. After I was done yesterday, I was in the house and heard this big crash. I never did find out what it was until this morning I saw the walnut glue up had fallen off my table saw and bent one of my hand screw clamps. Oops. In the meantime, I worked on the d...

Project on a whim #3: Reeding

02-20-2008 04:39 AM by Les Hastings | 9 comments »

Ok, turnings is done and now the post has been mounted on the Legacy and set up to do the reeding on the top portion of the post. Stops have been set up for the reeding and the proper bit has been installed in the router. I’ll be using a bit with a bearing to do the reeding, its a 3/16 radious. It also has a five inch long shank which allows it to reach the center of the turning. The Legacy has been set up to make 28 cuts for the reeding. The top portion of the post where the ...

Tool Gloat!

06-02-2012 01:55 AM by Ryan Haasen | 7 comments »

My parent’s friend’s business shut down and they were selling all of the assets tomorrow in sort of a garage-sale way. So tonight my Dad and I went in there to take a look at what they had. They had multiple tools, and some useful for woodworking. So we started making a pile. The first thing that caught my eye was a Porter-Cable router and a bunch of router bits and accessories. The accessories included bits, flush-trim bits, 1/2” and 1/4” collets and more. I have b...

The Tone Project

12-28-2009 07:19 PM by JimDaddyO | 6 comments »

As a new member here, I figured that I should share the project I am working on. I am by no means a luthier, or a highly skilled woodworker (yet). This is something that I have wanted to do for a long time. It started by felling an ash tree a few years ago and getting it milled into boards. Here I am in my large workshop planing the boards to thickness. Note the fancy chip/dust collector. Did my first bookmatch ever! Made a core from maple. glueing the back to the ...

Things Are Getting Scary!!

12-08-2008 05:14 AM by Woodshopfreak | 15 comments »

I haven’t really posted on here for a while so, sorry but heres what I have to say today. I was working on a new project for my uncle. It’s a shoe shine box, just for looks at his house, and I was simply routing a dato on the bottom of the box to accept the bottom panel. Well heres where things get kind of scary. I was using a 1/4 inch straight cutting bit to cut the datos and all the sudden I realized that nothing was being cut. I turned off the router and examined the problem...

The great table saw guard debate (or are you sure you'd like to risk going to hospital?)

09-09-2008 05:17 PM by oldskoolmodder | 12 comments »

So, even experienced and long time(of which I am) woodworkers sometimes question if they are doing the right thing by taking “safety” equipment off of their tools, for a god reason. Almost anyone I know has taken the table saw guard off at some point, or maybe never even put it on, when they got a new saw. I’m certainly NO exception at all. Does it make me smart? Does it make me stupid? Well, that’s something that much like everything else, is something that only the i...

Gamble Entry table #3: It's comming along...

06-19-2008 03:35 AM by abie | 8 comments »

I’ve been busy making the parts fit sanding and then staining with Red Mahagony….Lyptus turned out darker than I imagined but it is cool.. The bread boards were also Lyptus but a darker hue.. so the contrast was fine.The Box joints were cut using an Incra jig as did David M… and I cut another set with traditional hand saw as my instructor wanted.. I can’t tell the difference. Splines on the breadBoards were tricky as the dado blade does not account for warpage and mi...

Project - Lever-Action Boxes #3: Carcase Assembly

10-22-2007 12:54 PM by Dekker | 8 comments »

Wow. I’ve had a busy weekend, but unfortunately I was not able to finish as much as I wanted. Since I knew I was going to be using my router, I first fixed the problem I had with it. I cut my stock to width and length, and I regret having cut the carcase pieces it to length. This made the next step, running it through the router, much trickier, since I had to use my push-pad to control a 3-1/2” long piece as it was getting a rabbet cut on it! It wanted to pull itself into th...

My new shop system

03-20-2008 06:04 AM by Sawdust2 | 14 comments »

Table saw system upgrade A few years ago I got a good deal on an Xacta fence for my Jet contractors saw. That meant I had to come up with a support system for the extension table. !I decided to build a system that would hold the saw, provide some storage and also hold my router. That way I could get rid of my router table. At the time my shop was quite a bit smaller than my current shop. So this is what I came up with.It was functional but it wasn’t pretty.This year I decided that I ...
