Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #6: Quick drawer question for the more experienced!

08-29-2010 03:07 AM by RonPeters | 3 comments »

Ok, so I’ve changed the design of the drawers a bit on my bench cabinet. I decided that instead of sliding on wood rails – per the plan – that it would be much better to use side mount ball bearing sliders. The plan calls for 19-3/4” deep (carcass is 20” deep) but they don’t make 19” sliders. I got 18”s. The width of the drawer is 23” (I know, I’ve read that they shouldn’t be wider than the slider, oh well…) Depth o...

SPIRAL DESIGN #1: Whirlpool

08-27-2010 07:17 AM by BertFlores58 | 14 comments »

I am looking forward in doing some mosaic of wood. I was amazed by the capability of sketchup in trying to design those combinations. I know I am motivated by those who created designs for boxes, lazy susan, table tops and many others… To mention some.. Larry (Degoose), Spalm, Martyn (Britboxmaker), Gary K., etc. I posted this series for those who are interested in constructing it. Just click the photo to make it full screen…

IWF 2010 #1: Day 2

08-27-2010 01:00 AM by ABrown | 2 comments »

Well today I was in building B which has most of the machinery mfgs. A lot of them was large industrial type machines that had no chance of fitting in my shop, not to mention over loading the power grid in my area. There was some that we all know like, Delta, PorterCable, Dewalt,Saw Stop, Kreg, and Rikon. I could go on and on but I won’t. One thing did catch my eye and that was the new Sawstop 1 3/4 Hp Cabinet saw, sence I’m limited to 110 Volt in my shop I figured that it would b...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #5: Sliding Door Issues!

08-22-2010 05:22 AM by RonPeters | 3 comments »

Ok, I have this sliding door that just wouldn’t slide smoothly through the slot in the wood! Grrr, this was a problem. It can’t work like this. There must be a better way. I was making sawdust pushing it in and out and that can’t be good… the slot – there’s two btw… The plans were none to clear, in fact they call for a wooden dowel. How long would that last before wearing out? So, I opted for the smooth shank on a 1/4” wood bolt. Hacked t...

Just couldn't believe my eyes! Carvers - look at THIS!

08-20-2010 01:03 PM by Don Butler | 7 comments »

I got a message from my sister this morning with pictures from this site.She doesn’t know where they come from, but a few minutes search uncovered this: http://zuzutop.com/2010/08/amazing-pencil-carving-art-by-getty-dalton/ Another thing that popped up was this Japanese site with pencils carved, just in the wood, leaving the lead inside untouched. http://www.infofreako.com/jad/pencil/2kikko-e.html I’m blown away by this work, but I don’t think it’s a useful...

band saw woes and triumphs - learning through failure

08-20-2010 12:31 PM by Kathy | 12 comments »

I am such a rookie that I never even wanted a band saw. Hubby kept bugging me because he had fond High School memories of one. BUT…when I stated seeing the band saw boxes on the projects site I was hooked and he bought me one. So after some exploring we bought the G0555P and it arrived at our house. All 210 lbs of it!!! Actually the directions for putting it together were really good and other than having to ask a friend over to help with the heavy head it was pretty easy. Frien...
