The Evolution of Design #1: The Making of the Rocker Cradle

06-30-2011 02:41 AM by ScottMorrison | 8 comments »

Soon, I will be releasing a documentary on the evolution, history and the making of a Rocker Cradle. Although I’d love to take credit for the original concept, the idea was actually a bit before my time, circa 1700’s. Hope you enjoy the clip…

Dewalt Table Saws? #1: DEWALT DW745 10 in. 15 Amp Compact Job Site Table Saw

06-28-2011 06:05 AM by WoodShopGirl5 | 6 comments »

Ive been doing woodworking for almost 3 years now in high school. Ive made a variety of quality projects like chessboards, boxes with cedar lining, clocks. I want to buy a table saw to use at home, but I dont want to spend a lot. I want it to be of decent quality though to do precise cuts. Im looking in a price range of $200-$450. Im thinking about this DEWALT DW745 10” Compact Job Site Table Saw. Its about $370. Would this be worth buying? Is it good quality??

My First Bastone Walnut Burl!

06-27-2011 01:30 AM by OregonBurls | 6 comments »

When I was slabbing it you could definately smell the walnut but it was different from the Claro and English. These have great dark black lines that are marbled. Beautiful white sap wood and hart wood. These are pics of some of the slabs. Cutting Wood Is A Blast!!!

Grandfather's Tools

06-24-2011 05:08 PM by Transition | 5 comments »

My Granfather’s name was Amos Leveille (pronounced “lev-ee-ay”) – 1909-1973. Upon my mother’s passing several years ago, I inherited what was left of my his tools. They had been left rusting in my mom’s basement for decades. I have been slowly refurbishing them, and putting them to use. It has been very enlightening, from both a tool and a person history perspective. I have given new life to these pieces, and they have returned the favor! Take a look&...

Growing into my shop #1: necessity

06-19-2011 05:57 AM by Wayne | 8 comments »

I came into this hobby nearly a year ago. It has always been interesting to me, as my father enjoyed making wooden toys, one grandfather had a small sawmill, and another grandfather made furniture here and there… And so it digs its claws into me. With a (very) minimal budget I have outfitted my small shop with mostly used, cheap tools. Not only am I tight financialy, in my 10’x10’ shed I am tight on space. At first I was looking for an easy cheap way into a larger shop, b...

my weekend workshop #1: tuning the table saw. Ridgid 4511

06-15-2011 03:00 AM by noweyrey1 | 7 comments »

Today I finally got around to making a zero clearance insert for my Ridgid R4511 Table saw. I’ve had the saw since November, but have not had much time to use it yet. I build an auxilary fence for it a couple weeks ago, which has helped a bit. I ordered some phenolic sheets on Ebay and finally they arrived today so I could make the insert. I had purchased the insert kit from Rockler previously, but its to short for my saws throat plate opening.Attached is some pictures of the insert fro...

Outfitting the workshop #8: It works!!! It saws wood!!

06-05-2011 05:43 AM by Mark Shymanski | 2 comments »

The wiring is finally done, and I have actually turned on my new General 50-200R and it sounds fantastic! It has been a painful several weeks (I guess it is actually months now) since I bought the saw, and I finally have had time, electricity and wood all at the same time to test out my saw!!!! I am super excited about this tool and can’t wait to put it through its paces! I’ll take some pictures and post them when I can.

Just for Fun... #48: Of Box Panels and Getting Sidetracked...

06-03-2011 04:18 AM by littlecope | 12 comments »

Today I had some spare time and managed to get a little bit of work done on the next part of my latest box, the raised panels…If you recall, I had procured a couple of Oak drawer sides from my folk’s house, and given them a quick, rough sanding…Next was to size them… I first squared them on one side, clamped up the box sides, then took a size from them for the width… It was then a simple matter, to transfer the size to the saw… and cut them to width… ...

Spring (blade) Cleaning

05-31-2011 04:36 AM by coloradoclimber | 6 comments »

Spring is here and the itch to get back in the shop is biting. First things first though and the first of the first things is cleaning up. It’s a wonder how much a mess the shop can get in even when I’m not actively working in it. One of the many things due to be cleaned are my table saw blades. Here’s how I do it: First get some Simple Green Pro HD, not the regular green stuff, the purple stuff. Rumor has it the green stuff is hard on the brazing but the purple is o...
