My pastor had this miter box in his garage. His father owned it originally. Since he has never used it, he offered it to me. Having had one of these on my mind for some time I immediately accepted sight unseen. (Well, truthfully, I knew where it was and sort of what condition the saw was in, but I did not know any of the particulars.) Today I was at the parsonage putting handles on the kitchen cabinets and I was able to take the saw home with me. All these pictures show th...
Isn’t it funny…..it’s always when you least expect it when you stumble upon something you had no idea you would find. There I was on a rather chilly 45 degree morning outside at an auction..the isles of tables although sometimes windier than your spirits care for…there were still enough vendors aboard the blacktop with secret finds to go around for all…..lol For old handtool pickers this for me was a pretty sweet morning indeed. I had just begun my journ...
Well the sawboard is a pretty simple jig, but man is it invaluable! The other day I needed to rip long taper cuts on a 2×6 and it was just the tool. I have been thinking about incorporating some holding clamps to the base to make it quicker to set up and use. This is what I came up with as my first run at design. I am thinking this would be ideal for breaking down plywood. The overall length is longer than 8’ so the design is two ply to allow for overlap. One side has a piece of ...
This is without a doubt the scariest looking sawyer job I’ve seen yet. Check out how casually he thrusts his unsupervised hand at the 4’+ tall circular saw blade! There are many more videos of people in this job with these saws on YouTube. Scary stuff.
Hello there, I need some input on a matter, i just cleaned a table saw blade with simple green and realized i had nothing to lubricate the blade after i rinsed it, so i ended up using almond oil and i need to know if that’s ok or bad for the blade, thanks!
I created a video showing the construction of a Fliptop Tool Stand I built for my planer and oscillating spindle sander. My shop, like so many others is inside a small two car garage with some days feels like a one car garage. Space is not something I have a lot of and because the house I live in is a rental and only temporary, I can’t build cabinets like I’d like and or don’t want to put in the effort to build something that I’ll just have to remove and take apart whe...
Queue is getting too long.
Hi guys- I promised I would post pictures of my latest project- a 1950s era Craftsman Table Saw… Sorry for the bad pic quality- these were taken with my cell phone. I’ll have better pictures taken when it is fully assembled and in working order…All torn apart- whoever stored it was smart and poured motor oil over the whole thingThe base alone weighs about 25 poundsHalfway assembled and all polished upTable top after 3 coats of Butchers Paste WaxMade a plate insert out of Ash...
As I am smack in the middle of a workbench build for my 16 month old and we are currently waiting on a part to arrive in the mail I thought I would pass the time with a side project for the kid. We were strolling through our neighborhood dollar store the other day looking at Halloween decor and such when I came across a small 12” saw. As an actual usable saw I think I would have been taken for a ride with the $1 price tag but as a starting point for a junior sized “...
The ever popular Joel over at Tools for Working Wood (also Grammery Tool), whom I also got my excellent Holdfasts from, has produced a nice bowsaw kit. I’ve been interested in picking up a tool like this for a while, as I’m inherently lazy, and I don’t like to take the resaw blade off my bandsaw for light scroll work, so I’ve been considering a hand tool to save me that time. The website also makes some excellent measured drawings available in PDF form, even if you...
