Quick Progress, Big Setback, Moving Foward...after a break

I put packing tape on the alignment blocks and on the board they are sitting on to keep them from sticking. Clamping the rows together. After the disaster, back home, having discovered what can be saved. You can see some of the planer gouges. I have been working on an end grain cutting board. I hope to join the ranks soon of the cu...

Progressing Forward

12-13-2010 04:17 AM by matt garcia | 7 comments »

Well it finally wamed up enough around here to do some glue ups. I got my feet made and glued up, and attached them to the base. Then I routed the edge of the base, and made the transition moulding and glued that. Now a mother cold front has come through, and it looks like it might freeze tonight!! Good thing I got busy in the shop yesterday. I also went to Clark’s for some secondary lumber. It must have been my lucky day Saturday!! When I arrived at Clark’s, first thing ...

3 phase conversion

12-09-2010 05:30 PM by Manasseh | 11 comments »

OK all you LJers out there that are smarter than me, And that should be most of you. I have an opportunity to purchase at a good price a 3 phase 10hp belt sander. The belt is about 8ft long by 8in. My questions: 1) Has anyone gone through the trouble of getting 3 phase electricity into a residential house? If so, how did you do it? 2) What is the cost of getting 3 phase into a residential home? 3) If anyone used a converter, how did it affect your equipment? Any and all com...

My First Real Attempt at a project. A shaker end Table #4: The Table Tops!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

12-09-2010 04:05 AM by therookie | 6 comments »

This is the first of the two table tops that I have to do. I used a tounge and grove joint and have the first one in the clamps. The first table top. The next table top layed out to show joints. The toungs on the center board. I thought it would look better if the center board had the tounges only. The grove of the left table edges. The right is the exact same thing, just with it on the other side.

Microcosms, a trip to a smaller world #1: Tiny Home Made Plywood and Banding.

12-03-2010 03:29 AM by shipwright | 11 comments »

I started this as a forum topic http://lumberjocks.com/topics/22441 but the way it’s going, it should have been a blog so I’m changing horses in mid stream. To bring things up to speed, I started out fooling around with the idea of thin plywood because I was bored in the shop waiting for finish coats to dry on my real project. It sort of took on a life of it’s own. Here’s a brief recap: The first two shots are of a 4” x 8” sheet of 1/16” walnut ...

The New Workbench #1: Description of Bench

11-26-2010 07:42 PM by therookie | 6 comments »

So I started getting into woodworking and bought a hand plane. So as soon as I got home I wanted to use it, so I put a peice of wood in my vise and started planeing. Five minutes later, my bench was four feet farther forward than it originally started. So I moved it back and kept going. Well I have done that for the past year and a half, and have decided enough is enough. So while I was in school I designed a Work Bench. Here are the specs on the bench:1. The bench is four feet deep, six feet...
