Hi guys- I promised I would post pictures of my latest project- a 1950s era Craftsman Table Saw… Sorry for the bad pic quality- these were taken with my cell phone. I’ll have better pictures taken when it is fully assembled and in working order…All torn apart- whoever stored it was smart and poured motor oil over the whole thingThe base alone weighs about 25 poundsHalfway assembled and all polished upTable top after 3 coats of Butchers Paste WaxMade a plate insert out of Ash...
Alright, I have decided that I would like to build my own patio furniture instead of buying a set from “the big box stores.” I took the design idea from a table I saw at one of those stores, but it is slightly different, also I didn’t like the chairs that they had with the set, those are still in design phase. here is the table’s design that I have drawn using google’s sketch up: I’ll continue to work on the chair designs, but I was sort of inter...
This is table i’m working on, I know its a little “grand” for a first timers table, but I figured if I can do this table, it will make doing future tables much easier. I’m a child of the 80s and i grew up around 70s and early 80s furniture and if you remember, it was all massive and looked like wood. I love huge furniture still and can never just let a good floor model tv go to waste (i made a router table out of one and a fish tank out of another). So without rega...
Yesterday, I posted a taper jig project. The taper jig was used in my entry for the 2×4 Project. Before the taper jig was made, I had to locate a 2×4 to use. This was relatively easy. I knew a local lumber yard carried very high quality Douglas fir dimension lumber for use in finish work. I located a completely clear, tight grained 8’ board. The only downside was it cost substantially more than the typical big box store stud. Oh well, this is for FURNITURE, not being st...
Hello everyone! A while back a great LumberJock wouldn’t take no for an answer and generously mailed me some veneer. After much reading, blogs on the LumberJock’s and his guidance I made this chess board with the lovely veneers. The question was… what will I do with it? After much consideration I decided to make a table upon which to attach it to. Unlike most of you, my plan was in my head. Kind of learn as you go type of venture. I started of wanting to try and...
I had been wanting one of Lee Jesberger’s Ezee-Feeds ever since I first saw it. It looked like a great solution to the problem I was having getting a decent job of cutting sheet goods.Carleen and I fought the last cabinet job with a 4 roller stand and the new outfeed table I put on the saw. It was certainly better than the single roller stand we had been using. The out feed table and the new big workbench really took care of the out feed side but getting it started was still a two man(O...
CLICK FOR LARGE FORMAT I am making a video series showing the Ezee-Feed Infeed and Outfeed Tables designed by Master Woodworker Lee Jesberger from Ezee-Feed Manufacturing. I just got the outfeed table assembled and securely mounted on my table saw. Not one to wait around, I decided to shoot a small preview video which was originally posted on my website & blog. The Ezee-Feed system is going to make cutting large panels and sheet goods a breeze! This is the definitely the safety a...
Alright, I’m ready to do some real woodwork now. I finally finished my last two table saw jigs. This time I made a miter sled and a key slot jig (spline jig?). I will make more jigs/sleds as I need them, but I think that the three I’ve made recently should be a good start with my new TS. So, heres a couple of pictures, and as always comments and suggestions are welcome (I came here to learn).
I didn’t make any headway on my cabinet today, but did make progress on my shop equipment. This morning, a friend and I rented a U-haul trailer and picked up some new woodworking machinery. He purchased a Powermatic 15” planer/molder and a Jet free-standing buffer. I purchased a Jet 10” Left Tilt Cabinet saw. I also got a great deal on some Jet clamps. As everyone here knows, you can never have too many clamps. After scratching our heads a bit, we were able to unload b...
Well, if you all have been following my blogs, you’d know that I recently purchased a new table saw. Being that this is my first table saw, I want to ensure that I am using it as efficiently and as safely as possible. So after doing a good bit of research I decided to make a few jigs to improve my accuracy with my new saw. The first jig I made today is the crosscut sled. Shortly I will be making a miter sled and a jig for cutting key slots on boxes. So without further adieu, here i...
