Beginnings #2: Procuring Equipment

11-25-2011 09:16 AM by Knot_Board_At_Awl | 1 comment »

As written in my first post, I’m still at the beginning of my foray into woodworking as most of my wood projects so far are home renovations and grunt work! Throughout my home renovations, I have been keeping my eye open for equipment so that I can slowly build it up and have it ready for when I can really get into woodworking within the next two years or so (at least that is the plan). Most of my equipment is used (See my workshop for details). I figure that buying something used he...

Carpenter Cut - Optimal cutlist diagram for iPad/iPhone

11-23-2011 04:03 PM by SmartCutter | 7 comments »

After my previous post here, I got numerous feedback and great ideas from professionals on this site on how to optimize the cutlist diagram to make it useful for professional wood workers. This lead me to develop “Carpenter Cut” app for iPad/iPhone devices. It goes like this: Start with a sheet of plywood (e.g. 48×96), tell it the dimensions and quantity of each part you want to cut from it. Specify the kerf (size for your saw blade (0.125 is the default)), and indicate gr...

Looking for Criticisms on Grizzly cabinet saws and service?

11-22-2011 08:08 PM by DocSavage45 | 15 comments »

Looking through the LJ search engine for Grizzly tablesaws, I’ve found opinions and critiqes. I will not be getting a higher priced machine like a Saw Stop. I have a pretty nce craftsman that was built 15 years ago. I will be starting to work with hardwoods, air dried, and some salvaged from the town composte pile. The craftsman is underpowered, and might be unsafe? To be safe I know I need more power. Grizzly has been pretty good in parts and service for me. And better than bu...

Jigs and techniques #4: Flexi-Sled Table Saw Sled

11-22-2011 04:30 AM by GregD | 1 comment »

Yet another table saw sled. The idea behind this table saw sled was to provide a lot of flexibility in clamping down the fence and workpieces. The top is 3/4” melamine edge banded with scraps I happened to have handy. On the bottom is a 30 inch Kreg Jig and Fixture Bar. The T tracks on top are cut from 2 48” lengths. The fence is a Rockler router table fence that I found on sale a year or so ago. I had to shim it with Scotch Tape on the bottom to square the face to ...

I’ve been at it since Thursday, gathering materials and and being a “wild wood whacker.” This was what it looked like at the end of Friday;From Yala, Hakim and Michelle Since then I’ve been curring shelves, drawer parts, countertop and shelf edging. Gluing and screwing and jointing and joining. In 4 days, I’ve put in about 40 hours. Today is more assembly! Hopefully I can have it ready for a primer and first coat by tomorrow morning!

Twins! #3: Wood selection

11-19-2011 01:45 AM by Andy123 | 3 comments »

Well… I haven’t made and entry in a while. I’ve made a cut list and compared prices in Eugene, Oregon. Emerson Hardwood/Crosscut had the best prices. I made a detailed list of what wood I needed, in common thicknesses and widths. All I needed was laid out down to the last detail. I had my list in hand and I drove the 1.5 hours to Eugene to get my lumber. When I got there, Emerson had the widths I needed, but not the lengths. Crap! I had to redo the lumber list all in my hea...

Entryway Bench #2: More Assembly, Old-Growth Pine Milling

11-15-2011 05:54 AM by superstretch | 3 comments »

FrameI finally got some more work done on the entryway bench.. I anchored the seat frame to the walls and then constructed the legs cut and screwed in underneath. I originally wanted to make the entire thing out of beams and barn boards that I had outside.. but simplicity triumphed and I resorted to 2×4s. In the long run, I think they’ll stand up better and would hold to the walls without the screws pulling through. — Seat/StorageAs you can see from the pictures...

!Hello again,I wrote the second great day entry Sat. night, however could not how to add the pictures. Several of you asked for pics of the new saw assembly. So I am starting over now. Up early Sat. morning read LJ stuff and decided to list my 22124 Craftsman saw. Went into shop to finish a couple small projects and to work a little on some in process stuff so I could get these pesky things out the way so I could get back to work on assembling the new Shop Fox. I forgot about time when my ...
