Episode 74 Shop Clean up from kostas workshop on Vimeo.In this episode I clean the shop. It took about 5 hours to clean up all the dust and put everything away.
Hi everyone,I’ve recently got a new tablesaw, it’s my first one.It’s a small, portable 900W tablesaw, kind of small but it fits my shop well: The thing is, I want to cut some 4cm thick (~1.57 inches) Korina wood: I’ve only used this saw a little bit and it’s already lost 2 teeth on some pine (!!) so I’m not sure how it will do against thick hardwood. I’ve read that the blades that come with the saw are usually very low grade, will changing the b...
After a lot of running around this morning – drive clean emissions test, visit to Busy Bee, and appointment at Square One mall – I finally made it to my local Home Depot to pick up my bargin. It’s now sitting in my garage 3/4 of the way to being completely assembled. I’ll need to get it down off of my workbench with a little help from my brother tomorrow, but I think I’ll have it set up and running by the end of the day (keep your fingers crossed). I’m ...
I had an old oregon pine painted door that was in pieces – unfortunately we did not take a photo of it, but we have another door that is the same design and I will take a picture of that. Hubby first decided to repair the door but as I had no use for a door we decided to leave the old paint on, cut it into two and turn them into mirrors. After hubby did the woodworking part of the project, I sanded down all the loose paint. Painted a soft blue over and then finished it with a gal...
Episode 73 Panels from kostas workshop on Vimeo.In this episode I go through how to make a panel. I cut the panels down to size at the router table but there are a lot of other ways to do it. The 4 panels I made are for a curved top chest.
I have been looking forward to this part of the table saw island for a long time. In fact its been in process for a month or so, but I have had the idea to build one for years. I need to have out feed support on the table saw when ever cutting large sheet goods or long lumber. However I don’t always need the extra table taking up space and I don’t always need the support in the same position on the back of the bench. So here is my first sliding flip up out feed extension table, bu...
OK we are out of the clamps with our project and we level the legs. Next we do a little more finish sanding and spray our finish. *Note one thing I forgot on the video I buy adhesive backed felt and put on the bottom of the feet to ad that “Pro” touch to it. Enjoy and if any would not mind doing me favor, how about leaving some reviews on iTunes for me. Thanks In Advance, Huck
Here you see my four station desk inside the medical clinic, where it now reduced. I used Minwax special Walnut stain before a beautiful lacquer finish was applied by my friend and teacher, Mr. Lehman. Thanks to Mr. Lehman I was able to supply my client a set of desks with a first rate durable finish.
The desks are now assembled and I started fabricating the drawer fronts and doors. After realizing I made the doors wrong and couldn’t use the concealed hinges that I wanted, I made another set.These pictures show some in progress shots of what I did to accommodate the hinges I have. The parts are marked and ready for drilling for the hinge cups. I used my General drill guide a lot on this project. Most of the drawer boxes are finished and I am now in the middle...
Hi all, my first blog/post I have a Craftsman 10” contractor’s table saw circa 1970s that needs a better fence. The stock fence just isn’t true. I’ve been looking at all kinds of them out there. Prices range from $150 to $400+. Anyone have a recommendation? I don’t do a lot of cutting, but if I had a better fence I might. I’m going to build an armoire for the living room and accuracy would be necessary. What about the saw itself? I install...
