Tools #5: Overhead Blade Guard

11-02-2007 05:46 PM by mot | 9 comments »

I’ve been meaning to blog this for awhile. I’ve gotten a few messages asking about my blade guard so I wanted to give the story. As many of us know, the blade guards that come with standard table saws are awkward to use and often get taken off and never replaced. My original motivation for the blade gaurd, however, was not safety. It was dust control. When I set up my shop in my basement, I got overhead dust filters and dust collectors with piping. After cutting with my t...

Baby's First Furniture #1: Baby's First Furniture - The Plan.

10-31-2007 04:35 AM by Bob_B | 1 comment »

My wife and I are expecting our first child in February. This after 2 years of trying. Needless to say, we are very excited. This, of course, is my chance to build some baby furniture and spend a little time in the shop that isn’t work related. No real deadlines, and the freedom to use all of the creativity I want. What could be better. There is one other reason I’m building these 2 items. I’d really like to build something that my daughter will have when she gets married...

It was a good week-end. I made a small amount of progress on my computer table/desk. Still not finished but an getting closer. I can’t wait to share some pictures. A friend of mine did find me a new (axtually used)...new to me, hand plane at a garage sale over the week end. I will probably clean and sharpen it tonight, (there goes progress on the computer table)...oh well.Everyone have a good week.

Downdraft Table #1: Draft/Concept

10-23-2007 07:43 AM by Peter Oxley | 13 comments »

I’ve been planing to build a down-draft table for quite awhile. It’s probably as important as a dust collector for staying ahead of dust collection. Someone gave me a furnace blower that puts out a lot of air, and I’ve been planning and plotting. My big hangup has been that the filters will plug up fast and I’ll be cleaning them all the time. This weekend I cut up a bunch of MDF and was surprised to see quite a pile of MDF dust in my dust seperator. When the air an...

Router Table #7: Photo-Minimal Update, Fence Completed!

10-19-2007 05:21 PM by Jon3 | 1 comment »

Although I completed the fence last night, my girlfriend unknowningly borrowed the camera, so I only have some after-completion photos today. Here is the completed front face of the fence. Some mini quick grips still holding the upper fixed fence portion in place. And here’s the back of the fence. I deviated quite a bit from Norm’s design on the dust chute. I really hate routing dust, so I decided to just use a 2.5” coupler, and I’m going to use the shop...

Router Table #2: Dado Time!

10-17-2007 04:31 PM by Jon3 | 5 comments »

I grabbed a Dewalt Dado set off Amazon for a song a while back, thanks to the wonderful deal hound at Woodnet. So I loaded that up, got a good fit, and began to run down some Dados Then I began to glue & brad the chassis together. I set that aside so that the glue could dry, and moved on to the drawers. I broke down the ply, and laid them all out. Before I assembled, I did a big tape-up, tossed on some cheap sacrificial borg ply on the bottom, and drilled the...

Router Table #1: New Yankee Style Router Table

10-17-2007 04:30 PM by Jon3 | 2 comments »

NOTE All of my photos have been migrated to a new provider, and the links in my posts are likely out of date. You can find the photos here. So, I’ve needed a router table, and I wanted an nice big surface area. I’ve used some of the lighter weight ones before and didnt’ care for them. The only product I used that I liked was the Bench Dog with the CI top, and the whole system, including a nice beefy 3HP router would have set me back around $1500. I couldn’t se...

The Craftsman's Path #10: Super-simple drill press table upgrade

10-07-2007 04:45 PM by Mark Mazzo | 1 comment »

Sometimes after you complete a task, you wonder why you procrastinated so long to do it. I had a good day in the shop yesterday doing a simple but, long-overdue upgrade to my drill press. If you are considering a similar upgrade, or you are just looking for some inspiration to tackle a project that you’ve been putting off, you might want to take a look at the post about it on my blog. Thanks for reading and let me know what you think!

Iroko & Sycamore Table

10-02-2007 07:58 PM by ByronBlack | 12 comments »

Hi all. I wanted to introduce myself and present all you fellow ‘jocks with my current project. It’s a little design I’ve had whirling around my head for some time. It’s an Arts & Crafts inspired small table to go next to the sofa and hold ‘her in doors’ cup of tea whilest watching TV of an evening. Here’s a shot of a dry fit and unfinished top: I’m currently in the middle of a glue up of the leg assemblies, and a mitred frame to s...
