Inspired or Insane

07-11-2007 05:01 AM by che | 9 comments »

After mulling around a bit thinking about the music box I want to build and cursing the lack of tools in my shop (specifically the Rikon 10-325 I not so secretly lust after) I was remembered a post I read and was inspired, http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/woodspar/blog/1370 or stricken by a very severe dementia. I’m not sure. I plan on building a music box with a frame and panel top. The frame will likely be curly maple and the panel will be a black walnut crotch. The crotch I have i...

Shop Tools #7: Today's Finds - July 8 2007

07-09-2007 12:49 AM by WayneC | 8 comments »

Today was the monthly antique sale here in Sacramento. I got a few interesting things and almost got something I’ve been looking for. I pulled a Fulton #2 sized plane out of a box of old planes. I asked how much and was told $180. Perhaps for a nice Stanley, but for that kind of money I would have been better off buying an Lie-Nielson. Such is life. I came across a box of Saws and picked 3 out. I’m starting to look for a few good saws and these look like they could be res...

Homemade bow saw

07-05-2007 04:38 AM by oscorner | 12 comments »

I saw a bow saw one day on the internet, did some research on them and decided to make me one. I used rived oak for the two handles, cherry for the part that connects the handles (which is connected with mortise and tenon joinery) and some spalted wood for the handles that hold the blade. I had to glue a some cherry dowels I made into the spalted wood because the spalted wood was too soft to stand the pressure of tightening the blade. I cut two finishing nails and used them as pins to atta...

"Working Hands Make Good Progress" --by RusticWoodArt

06-21-2007 02:06 PM by frank | 6 comments »

Working Hands Make Good Progress ….and so here i go again,sliding across the grains of wood,kicking up some sawdust as i plough a plane,looking to be fitted in tight for all good…. And so it was that Tuesday evening I managed to get this one finished up and started tweaking the saw to achieve it’s height of perfection, in the midst of cutting for ‘wood joinery’. One could call this one a ‘dovetail saw’....’sliding dovetail saw’....’push...

Ouch, again

06-19-2007 08:17 PM by SST | 4 comments »

Well, the last time I saw fit to do the blog thing (you can tell I’m not a big blogger…just check back) was because I decided to see which was tougher, my thumb or my table saw blade. Now, granted, it’s only an old 10ER shopsmith, but it was still tougher than my thumb. In fact, it wasn’t even a fair fight.Now I’m back, a mere 119 days later to blog my little buns off.It seems that the only time I have anything to say, it’s when I hurt myself. Oh well, man...

Sliding Table for table Saw.

06-01-2007 05:21 AM by Karson | 5 comments »

In a couple of my Blogs or Projects I’ve mentioned my Sliding Table. I thought I’d give you a view of it. It’s made by Exaktor Tools Phil Humphry was the owner and engineer who designed the table. It looks like new owners now.It was a tossup between the Exaktor and Excalibur . The table saw that I purchased was a Fay-Egan commercial saw. The files of the Manufacture have been destroyed so no history exists that give serial numbers and dates manufactured. The company went bankrupt in 1937, ot...

To Domino or not to Domino

05-13-2007 09:42 PM by Bill | 29 comments »

Ok, so I am sitting here weighing the costs of some tools. On the one hand, the Festool Domino set with dominos, guides, and a dust collector for approximately $1300. On the other hand, I need a table saw and a planer. The money for the domino would likely cover these items. Which way do I go? The Domino would allow me to do mortise and tennon joints much more easily than now. It would have the greater flexibility of positions, large sizes, etc. compared to the mortise machine. But ...
