Extremely Average #59: Flatening with A Router

1609 days ago by Ecocandle | 14 comments »

The whole point of devoting my early woodworking days to building stuff for woodworking is to learn. Today, while reading the latest issue of shop notes, I learned that the router table top, which I am building, is a laminated top. I guess I had always thought that laminated only applied to thin strips glued together. I don’t know why I assumed there was some sort of arbitrary thickness requirement. Now I know.The seven sets of laminated sections have become three. The middle section...

Slab Table #1: Slab Table......pt 1

343 days ago by HickoryHill | 0 comments »

The sister company to where I work is an arborist service, tree removals (sometimes), pruning, caring, fertilizing, risk management, etc. So I tend to get one of the first cracks at stuff that comes in. I was out looking at other logs they had brought in and noticed this guy sitting there. Fortunately it has just rained or else I would of missed it. The cross cut of the tree is what caught my eye. From a Maple tree that was starting to decay. Along the outer edge is some spalting too. ...

New Router Table #4: Adding the Base

328 days ago by jeffbranch | 4 comments »

Making a mortise with an old drill press. I have said before that an old rickety drill press is better than no drill press at all. In the photo above, I am using my Dad’s old Craftsman bench top drill press to do some deep mortising. This drill press shakes worse than a wet dog; it shakes so much I feel like I need to call someone to help me keep everything in place. I am doing some mild exaggeration here, but in the photo above I am using several clamps while drilling some mortises. Th...

Stickley High Chest #2: Drawers

1287 days ago by Greg | 2 comments »

All the drawers have been cut, dovetailed, and glued. I struggled a bit with the dovetails. I used a dovetailing jig and started with an older router that I have. I finished a couple of drawers and then my router bit started moving from the center of the bushing to the edge. I had to scrap the drawer sides from one of the smaller drawers. Luckily, I didn’t screw-up on the walnut front. The particular router (1.5 hp Ryobi with plastic threaded height adjustment) that I started with doesn...

Fun with Router Bits

326 days ago by Kean | 7 comments »

I’ve been buying my router bits from MLCS for years and never had a problem with one. Until today, that is. Received in the mail today a solid carbide pattern routing bit. Mounted it in the router table and started to do the finish work on the guide holes in the cheese press I’m building. All was going well, then the bit suddenly caught a little and made an odd noise. Slap the emergency stop, check the setup, can’t find anything wrong. Start it back up and continue working. ...

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #12: Growth, Learning how to sell, and my First Business Photoshoot!

374 days ago by Ethan Harris | 7 comments »

Hello All, Been awhile, and I really want to keep up with my blogs here on lumberjocks so here goes another. Spud (or I) has (or “have” if you assume I) been buying a lot of new tools to expand my business line and so far its been more spending money than making, but that’s the short term plan anyhow… I think. Other than expanding my (or Spud’s) tools and products its seems like I have been getting a crash course in sales 101. What makes my product diffe...

Day one

880 days ago by T. D. Reid | 4 comments »

I had to get on here tonight and post a picture of the legs for my eight year olds new bed. I am using a design from Wood Magazine that I have made one change too and that was the legs. If you have seen the plans for this bed they give you an option of bunking the bed and due to the ceiling height in his room I will pass on that. They cut out where the mortises are located for the rails and then laminated three boards together to get the finished 2 1/4 inch thickness. So my change is the use ...
