ScrollSaw Information and Resources #6: Scrollsaw Blade Tension

02-12-2011 07:09 PM by jerrells | 1 comment »

I read alot about blade tension and I kn ow that is a problem I have. Most of what I read talks about the sound of the blade. That sound reasonable. However I just saw a new post that talked about defection as a better method. The comment was the the thickness of the balde would change the sound and as I should always be wearing my hearing aids I could not tell anyway. It seems that this deflection should be a better method. I will be trying this out this afternoon (as it is finally warmer in...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #8: Day 2 went well!

02-11-2011 06:37 AM by Mark Shymanski | 2 comments »

Hello Again, Well after a rough day at work I was really looking forward to today’s course…then I had to go back to work! But its okay I still made it to class early! I’m 2 for 2! Today Ryan demonstrated the bandsaw, disk and spindle sanders. Pretty cool, a huge bandsaw. I will have to measure it’s resaw capacity as it looked about 12 or 13 inches but very deep from the blade to the arm and a huge table. After the demo’s we picked our projects and began ...

Beaver rehab #2: disassembley clean and fix

02-11-2011 03:55 AM by JuniorJoiner | 4 comments »

I haven’t been hitting this restore with my usual vigor. I’ve been dogged by my back issues, so even these smallish tools evoke much morphine use. such is life.here is the drill in it’s new state, no noticeable runout, smooth and quiet. kid stuff, The jointer is another story. This machine was stored in a basement that flooded(often), and hadn’t been so much as dusted off in 11 years. On top of that, once I had it dissasembled and started sanding down the rust, I co...

In the Shop #4: Inspired to do something new... Hand-cut Dovetails

02-09-2011 05:09 AM by Hoakie | 28 comments »

Is it odd that every time I get a new power tool to perform a task, I get an urge to try and do it by hand as well? Anyway it seems to happen to me a lot. This year I received a dovetail jig for Christmas and was up and running cutting half-blind dovetails in no time. However, I have been wanting to learn techniques working with hand tools for a long time to expand my arsenal. Over the past few weeks I’ve been eying some of the entries to the Winter Challenge, the videos of the Ja...

Gamble House

01-25-2011 08:19 PM by bhack | 3 comments »

While visiting in Southern California I took the opportunity to visit the Gamble House in Pasadena. I really like the Greene and Greene style. The architecture is wonderful. What was very disappointing was the lack of mention of the craftsman that took the designs and crafted the house and furnishing. It still amazes me the lack of appreciation of a craft person. I feel that Peter and John Hall are not mentioned for their craftsmanship enough. Therefore any time I have a discussion abo...

Stickley High Chest #3: Request for advice on dovetailed drawer slides

01-24-2011 08:42 PM by Greg | 1 comment »

I am going to start in on making my dovetail drawer slides today. I haven’t found much info on LJ or the rest of the web on tips, tricks, and rules of thumb. I made up a couple practice slides the other day and they seem to work well (unmounted), but I still have some questions: 1. How many slides (under mounted) should I use? An antique dresser we have uses one down the center and a newer dresser we have has two. The drawer size on both are approximately the same. The drawers ...
