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...
This is a series of videos showing how I made my sculpted coffee table for the Coffee Table Build-Off hosted by Neil Cronk of the Cronkwright Woodshop this past month. This is the project playlist I posted on my YouTube channel.
So I’ve been planning on building a decent mahogany tv stand for about a year now. I drew up numerous plans and picked out tons of wood from my old stockpile. I had the dimensions down so that it would fit my (much too large and heavy) old school tvas well as 3 peripherals right at the top. Also lots of storage below for whatever. Work became unbelievably busy last year, as well as my wife getting pregnant and my twinswere born 7 months ago. Wow. So needless to say I didn̵...
A few folks have asked me what I have been up to lately in the shop, so I decided to post a quick video blog, that I shot yesterday, before I head out for the long weekend. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving! Here is the video
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.
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...

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 ...
