Kanna

10-19-2015 07:28 PM by Mitch Peacock | 6 comments »

Just finished setting up my first Kanna. I like it – why did I wait so long to get one! I’ve filmed my setup procedure, which was based on various articles and videos online (big credit to fellow LJ Mafe, and his blog post), and will be posting a video to YouTube in the near future. I found the experience very calming, pretty easy, and quite successful – 0.04mm full width shavings (holding together) against the grain with virtually no tear out. Clearly I can improv...

Making progress - Making connections

08-06-2013 07:50 AM by JustaLilJoinery | 4 comments »

Hi all, I’m Jyl.I’m obviously new here and appreciate anyone who decides it is worthy of your time to read.I am a lover of wood, building, being creative and all things small. I came back to creating with wood (and other materials) because of a health issue. I’ve found that many other hobby-workers have also had this experience so you might notice that I mention it here and there. I will certainly try to not come off as a whiner but please understand as you get to know ...

Jet cabinet saw re-hab #18: Wings mounted... ready for takeoff

04-01-2013 11:34 PM by Mainiac Matt | 3 comments »

I mounted and alligned the table today… I took a good long time using a combinatin square and feller gauges and got the blade parallel to the miter slot within ~.002” Then I put on the wings and found that both sides were “drooping” so I had to shim them to get them coplanar with the table. I used clamps and blocks to mount them flush and I’m very happy with the results. Next task was to square the blade to the table and check the arbor runout. I coul...

Testing: Table Saw setup for Half Lap Joint

04-05-2012 12:46 AM by Joe Lyddon | 7 comments »

Testing: Table Saw setup for Half Lap Joint I cut a piece of good hardwood scrap to about 3/4” x 4” x 11” I measured 5” from one end & marked with knife. I measured 10” from same end & marked with knife. Knife-cut lines all the way around the board at each 5” point. Labeled things to make it look nice. I had cutoffs from the same piece of hardwood for testing the cuts. ============================================= Proceeded t...

Work(shop) in Progress #17: Sharpening Station

10-28-2011 09:04 PM by PurpLev | 4 comments »

When I started working with bladed tools (chisels/planes/etc) I wanted a sharpening system that was on the cheap, small and storable and versatile. I chose to start with the scary sharp, and used sand papers from 100grit (rough shaping and cleaning nicked blades) to 2500 for final honing and green compound for touch ups. I added the Veritas MK-II honing guide and was using it for reshaping/resestting blades and honing them through the grits. While this method worked for the time I wanted s...

1956 DeWalt MBF 9" Radial Arm Saw #7: (Less) Dust in the Wind

03-09-2011 01:26 AM by NBeener | 37 comments »

How does a dog get the LAST bit of water out of his bowl ? With a half-lap :-) Spent too much time figuring out how to get Hurricane Walter to spew less dust, or—at least—how I could capture the dust he spews. Shroud seemed like the way to go. So …. with leftover plywood from the construction of the ol’ ChupaCaja, I made me a dust collection box. ID is about 8” wide x 8” deep x 8” tall. The joinery is (IS it called this ?) half-lap (...

Slow Down - Jointer Setup

01-04-2011 02:41 AM by HungryTermite | 14 comments »

I’m sure someone’s last words were “This will probably be ok”. I used the 25% off coupon at Harbor Freight on New Years day to pick up a 6” jointer. This thing is one serious hunk of iron. The infeed table is flat within 0.001” and the outfeed is flat within 0.0025”. I have some shim stock on its way from Amazon so I can set things up properly. I will write a review after I have it up and running. However, the point of today’s entry is...

Adventures in Spraying #2: First Spray Job Done (sort of)

07-02-2010 10:57 PM by PurpLev | 13 comments »

We had the day off today at the office, so I figured this is as good a time to spray some finish. Fist thing first. I had to setup a way to spray while keeping the area somewhat separated from the rest of the basement in fear of contamination of the rest of the things. I also wanted to have a way to rotate the work so that I can spray all sides without having to walk around and being in the direction of the air flow (I have a box fan in the window to pull out the overspray etc. I initia...
