Gramercy tools bow saw kit / new tool, christmas present

02-13-2014 07:19 PM by Lazy_K | 4 comments »

Hi! the first project I’d like to share with all yall this year is this bow saw I made. I was given a bow saw kit from Gramercy tools. Knobs, brass blade holders, 3 – 12 ” saw blades. They have the plans for free on their website…. however, like many of us, I can’t just go with someone else’s standard or ordinary set up. So I did a google search for bowsaw, and selected “IMAGES FOR *” and got thousands (well maybe only a hundred or so) of...

Batteries, Batt...ttt..eries, Batt...t...t..eries - why wilt you die...

power… give me more power… I’ve had this cordless dewalt set for several years, and in the last year It has been stored most of the time. I have 3 18v batteries that would rotate between the tools, so I would always have a fresh battery to swap with… until recently – all 3 batteries died, don’t hold a charge – and in the last week won’t even charge at all … AAARRRGGGGHHH…. so now I have a collection (9) of pretty yellow tools t...

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, 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...

Cabinet Making #1: Looking At Actual Cabinet Construction

06-28-2010 05:30 AM by Tim Dorcas | 1 comment »

Last year I bought a half kitchen with the idea that I would add the cabinets to my workshop and give it an upgraded feel. (Right now everything is gray melamine which I got from an office that was being torn down.) When my wife saw that I was going to use the cabinets in my shop she immediately said they are too nice to get beat up in the shop. Too nice is a relative term. Let’s take a look. Here is an example of one of the cabinets. Here it is from different angle. Th...

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...

Fliptop Tool Stand Video

10-01-2015 05:16 PM by GodofBiscuits | 5 comments »

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...

Saw Sharpening: Wear Steel Underwear on This Slippery Slope

01-23-2008 05:12 PM by Eric | 8 comments »

I took a Woodcraft class last year called Hand Tool Basics and Sharpening. Took me through sharpening cabinet scrapers, chisels, hand planes and saws. A little bit about how to use them, but nothing significant. Loved the class, and I have to say I’m very happy with the sharpness of the chisels and plane blades I have done on my own since that class. Today I needed to cut up some MDF for a shooting board. Not knowing if MDF is good or bad for saws, I decided I didn’t want to ri...
