CLAMP FOR MY BIESMEYER FENCE UNDER CONSTRUCTION

03-27-2012 01:07 AM by Metrotek | 1 comment »

Greetings to all once again; I am attaching photos of the clamp for my new Biesmeyer style fence that is under construction. It came out fairly well.The circular pads are adjustable by carriage bolts threaded in to t-nuts to correct any undesired angularity. The ¾” dowel is a plunger that the cam pushes to lock the fence in place. The two piece pad that the dowel pushes will have an elastomer sandwiched between the pieces to provide a spring action so the cam can over clamp it...

ELECTRIC ANGLE SETTING TOOL

03-27-2012 12:37 AM by Metrotek | 6 comments »

Greetings to all; I am attaching scans of a tool that I once made my version of, for setting the table saw blade square to the table. It’s electric running on batteries with a led to indicate. You set it with a steel square on a flat surface; when both pointed probes are touching the blade, the light lights up. They work great and I’m making one after I finished my ersatz Biesmeyer fence. You can get the little battery holders at Radio Shack or simiar.Check out the drawings a...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #652: The Sands of Time

03-26-2012 09:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Most woodworkers that I talk to don’t like sanding. Of the many steps in the process of doing a woodworking project, I think I am pretty safe in saying that it is the least liked part. In fact, I am amazed at the number of people who spend hours on a project that simply skip over the sanding step completely. I don’t always understand why they would do that. While it may not be the most pleasant part of making a project, it is among the most important in most things that we cre...

Tool Refurb #4: Table Saw Top Cleanup and Belts

03-19-2012 11:02 PM by Joekwon80 | 6 comments »

I started cleaning up the top to the table saw today. I saw this website where he was working on the same saw as I am so I decided to take his methods. I started with 320 grit wet/dry sand paper then to 400-600-800-2000. I think it turned out alright. Also here is a photo of the belts. So yeah I’m sure I need to replace them.

03-18-2012 10:53 PM by KoryK | 41 comments »

Hello to all and all are Welcome, Intro: Hi, my name is Kory Kiker and a couple of weeks ago Ms. Debbie contacted me about conducting an online class for those interested in learning the art of intarsia. I was very excited about the chance to share a few things I have learned in the last three years of doing intarsia art. Before intarsia I did a lot of wood carving so I hope this helps give each project more depth and definition. I will tell you now that most of the things I’ve lear...

Sanding veneer leafs

03-12-2012 01:35 PM by xylophage | 3 comments »

Ok, so I have made some nice things in my day, but all were made out of solid wood. The only real experience i have with veneer, was with comercial veneer at a cabinet shop I worked at briefly. So a year ago I found an amazing pice of 8\4 quilted maple. I plan on using this wood for a desk. I was able to cut the leafs myself on my laguna bandsaw. Now, here is the part i could use some sage advice. I am not sure on how to sand them down to final thickness. I know i will have to rent some time ...

Canoe Paddle #3: Up the Creek with a Finished Paddle

03-10-2012 04:18 PM by Bagtown | 5 comments »

So, here we go.This will be the final chapter to this series.When we left off the paddle blade and shaft were somewhere between roughed and semi finished.The next step is a little slower. At least for me it is.The handgrip.Excuse the poor photography, but here is what were starting with for the handgrip. You get the idea. We’re starting with just a roughsawn blank.I think if I had been a little slower and used just a little more care at the bandsaw stage, then I wouldn’t have s...
