Shop stuff #122: Making a new strop.

04-18-2018 01:20 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

I have one. But it was just thrown together from scraps to test it out. Naturally it worked well, no surprise there, I now strop more than I “sharpen”. The problem with the original one is that it is too narrow for all my plane blades. So now that I am convinced of its usefulness, it’s time to build a proper one. I gave a bit of thought on a design that would be versatile for me and then made it. The first attempt was thwarted by bugs though, so I had to start over aga...

My woodworking journey. #1: A new table saw.

04-11-2018 04:01 PM by cajunrph | 10 comments »

Continuing on with my journey in woodworking. I’ve been doing Steve Ramsey’s weekend woodworker course. He had a list of tools recommended of which one was a Ridgid table saw. I had been looking on various online sites for used table saws. I mostly saw the roybi saws and older craftsman saws. I checked on a few never did pick one up. The recommended saw Steve suggested was $299. I checked it out on Home Depot’s website and it didn’t have high ratings. Many talked of...

Mind is Blown!! - My New (New to Me) TS Delta 36-454 Grand

04-09-2018 11:59 PM by Let_that_saw_eat | 14 comments »

So I bought my first solid table saw yesterday off CL, I must say what little I’ve used it thus far my mind is beyond blown!! The miter slots on a quality cast iron top, compared to the crappy aluminum one I had before, is like a dream come true. The rock-solid Unifence is another huge shock of goodness I’m unaccustomed to, not having to measure front and back with the old cruddy fence is like a race car vs. a golf cart cross country. I can’t wait for the weekend to come so I can make s...

Upgrading the fence and wings on my Ridgid R4512 table saw

04-08-2018 09:54 PM by bigJohninvegas | 1 comment »

So I unfortunately purchased a Ridgid R4512 new back in 2013. I was a newer woodworker and my budget at the time would not allow for a saw with a higher price tag. And at the time I was a little intimidated by the idea of a 10+ year old (affordable) saw that was going to most likely need a rebuild. So withing a year of that purchase, I had learned that I had the skill to handle a tool rebuild, and wished I had bought an old unisaw or powermatic and done that rebuild. But here I was, stuck ...

In this stage I choose the wood I want to use, usually I buy it, but this time I got lucky and unearth this beatiful “quebracho” wood from the backyard. Its a dark red and VERY hard wood. Its about 2” thick.

Shop stuff #121: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash Pt 3

04-07-2018 02:56 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, I got it all done. A little longer video, but I wanted to get to the end of it with this one while I was editing. Man, you wouldn’t believe the hours of footage NOT shown….lol. Anyway, the build was a fun one and I tried a couple of things I have never done before. My son in law likes his present and has his guitar on it now. Of course, mine got first ride because I had to video it in action. All in all, I like how it came out. Pretty close to what I had in my head, w...

DIY Bat Houses

04-04-2018 02:01 PM by wrenchhead | 8 comments »

I made these bat houses over the weekend. Mosquitoes get pretty bad where I live and it is beneficial to have bats around as natural insect control. These definitely are not fine woodworking projects but they are fun, cheap and easy to make. I hope you like the video.
