08-26-2009 06:52 PM by woodsmithshop | 1 comment »

has anyone used a DIGIMAG DIGITAL REMOTE READOUT on a router lift? how about the WIXEY digital readout for router lifts?EAGLE AMERICA has the DIGIMAG for sale for $50, and the WIXEY for $70, I was just wondering if one may be better than the other, if $20 difference was worth it either way.I think Amazon has them for the same price.thanks for any info anyone may have to offer.

Woodworking Safety #1: Introduction and my intent

08-30-2008 03:07 AM by tooldad | 15 comments »

I have a suggestion from one of my senior’s in my classes, also a LJ (tooldads_apprentice), to post podcasts of safety lessons as we do them during class on LJ. This would allow students to review or makeup safety packets if they were absent during demos. I thought great idea and am going to take it a little further. I am going to enlist the aide of our video production class to help produce the videos. Look out Wood Whisperer!. Episodes will include, hopefully, 1-General Shop Sa...

building a bench and stuff #5: The home stretch

06-12-2015 05:25 AM by TheFridge | 2 comments »

Warning: pic heavy Just posting a bunch of progress. Leg vise continued. Cutting the bridal joint. Lignum vitae pin for the guide. This stuff strong. Trying to incorporate this as a pin holder but haven’t come across an idea that I can pull off with what I have on hand. So it’s on the back burner for now. Hammered a poplar dowel and drilled a center so I could bore it with a forstner. Didn’t work out so well. Stuck a roll pin...

Jewelry Case Build #1: Rough Cutting Parts

04-22-2014 06:45 PM by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

I decided to build, what I think is, a nice jewelry case for my Niece’s birthday this summer. The case is Walnut with Bird’s Eye Maple for drawers and accents. There are some secondary 1/8” panels that will be either Baltic Birch or hardboard. Plans are from an older issue of Wood magazine. Here’s what it should look like when complete: Yesterday I cut everything but the hardboard to rough size. Then I dadoed out 10 tiny rails and stiles for half lap ...

Toy Trucks Build #3: Engine Compartment Milling

02-18-2014 05:29 AM by HerbC | 3 comments »

I managed to squeeze in a little shop time today and began by using my Craftsman 113 series contractor table saw to rip a piece of sycamore to rough width and resawed it rough thickness for the engine compartment pieces. As you can see in this photo, I’m using a 2×4 and a couple of clamps as a rip fence. What can I say, I got the saw for $35… I used my planer to mill the piece of sycamore to the final width and thickness. No pictures of that process today. Next I u...

Kitchen Cabinets #4: Slowing Progress

02-16-2013 12:59 AM by HRLou | 0 comments »

It’s been a couple of weeks since I updated. Funny how life gets in the way of what you’d really like to be doing… The cases and frames are mostly done and dry-fit. There’s a little tweaking still, but nothing really major. I still need to decide on how to join the face frames. I’m torn between dowels or taking the dive and getting a plate joiner. Good excuse for a new tool… Next real step will be getting the dividers on the wide cabinets cut to ...
