My Joinery Journey #1: Lumberjock Style Care Package

12-13-2013 06:31 AM by CFrye | 17 comments »

These beautiful saws arrived in the mail a few days ago, a Lumberjock care package from TerryR. Terry was the recipient (poor guy) of the plane I made for the 2013 Hand Plane Swap. He found out I didn’t have any (real) hand saws and determined to rectify said deficiency. I was speechless when I saw them (pun not intended). Between work and a fall on the ice I wasn’t able to try them out until today. With my husband instructing and offering needed advice, I cut my first blind m...

Table Saw Extension / Router Table #1: I Gots da Wood

09-10-2013 09:20 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

Because I am often frustrated by the limitations of my small table saw, I decided to put this project on the front burner. Today I drove up to a friend’s house to rescue him from being buried under too much wood. I came away with some 1/2 inch plywood less than 2 feet square and a few other goodies for future use. Then I headed down to my big box store and bought some hardware and a sheet of 1/2 inch plywood. I had it cut in quarters so that it would fit in my car. (Last time I asked...

Shop Update #2: Finally - A Serious Saw!

08-07-2011 05:54 AM by Dave | 14 comments »

I finally saved up enough to buy a cabinet saw that can handle everything I’ll be able to throw at it for many years to come. My old Ridgid TS2410LS is a great saw, but it doesn’t have the cutting capacity for big jobs, it’s dusty, and it’s LOUD. My new saw is a 3HP Saw Stop Professional Cabinet Saw with the 36” fence, industrial mobile base, and overarm dust collection. I won’t bother doing another review of it – the ones on here are pretty accu...

Another day, another nickle #2: Right Tilt Table Saw Blues

09-20-2007 02:25 PM by Thos. Angle | 12 comments »

A couple years ago I bought a brand new Jet table saw. It is really great except it is right tilt. At the time I thought it really didn’t matter, just change a few ways of working and it would be fine. I mean, there are thousands of them out there. It is dandy to not have to change the scale when I change the blade. I moved the miter gauge to the right side of the blade. I learned to jump the fence over the blade to cut 45’s. I built sleds and fixed the tenon jig for right handed ...

Saw vise build

01-02-2014 02:11 AM by Wally331 | 4 comments »

I have been in desperate need of a better way to hold my saws for sharpening. My old setup( two sticks of wood ~26 inches long which I would clamp onto saw plate and my vise) was simply not cutting it (sawing pun intended). I thought about purchasing vintage, but everyone always complained of bad vibrations, they are overpriced at antique shops, and I didn’t want to reposition my saw 4 times for full sized handsaws. I really liked Andy’s (Brit) design. It was economical, sturdy...
