I tapped the holes that were meant for the original fence with a 10mm tap. I drilled and countersunk the angle irons with the center hole slightly higher than the ones near the edge. I then re clamped the top to take the bow out and attached the angle iron with Gr. 8 machine screws. After a few hours of hand filing and test fitting, I got the angle irons attached plus I put lock nuts on the inside. My smallest feeler guage is .008 and must be forced under the straight edge at the worst po...
A couple days ago i posted my finished cabinet for my table saw and noted the problems with the overall height,and in true lumberjock fashion you guys commented with several great ideas, i just wanted to thank all of you,.. I decided to go with taking the cabinet top off and dropping the saw down into where the dust collection drawer was, was as easy as i thought but i got it done yesterday, ive posted some pics of it during the work, didnt take a final pic but i will and will post them tonig...
After thoroughly sealing the bottom and sides of the torsion box with a quart of polyurethane, it was time to surface the top flat. When I placed my 4 ft level on the bottom, it appeared to be flat to within < 1/64”. But for some reason, it appeared the top top had a slightly larger crown along it’s length, maybe 1/32” or so. So I lowered the bit to the surface, and started cutting just enough to not miss any spots. At first I was getting what appeared to be a very rough ...
In this episode I talk about the shoe rack. Then I talk about dust collection.
After receiving some very awesome feedback from a few people on this site I’ve gone forward with the project by screwing a 3/4” piece of ply to the stop and then putting a 1/8” piece of hardboard on top of that. I then went ahead and routed slots for the t-track which will hold the fence I’m working on. I’ve got a cutout for my router (not attached yet) and then I continued the 5/8” miter slots that are on my Craftsman TS. I also raised the saw blade throug...
It’s been a while since I started on this, but was busy with my new job. But the weather forced me back into action. We’re having an unseasonably warm spring. 8 inches of snow melted in a few days, then rain, and 50°-60° temps. And a huge amount of humidity. I went out in the garage the other day, and was terrified to see the pieces that I ad already glued down loose on the torsion box. The humidity had expanded them so much that they were popping loose, actually tearing the s...
Today was a fun day with several new lessons learned. I finally got through the crunch of midterms at school and craziness at work to have a day where I could make some sawdust. The next step on the blanket chest was to clean up some of the joints a little bit and then cut the wood for the panels. Well, over the last couple months we have had a lot of rain and the garage has flooded a bit. I dug out the 1×12s that I bought to make the panels and they were all cupped and twisted to th...
I’m for the most part done with this project. For those of you that asked about the router table track I’m putting that off until I invest in a Woodpecker Router Lift which might require me to modify my table for a larger plate. I have updated photos on my project link. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/27579
So … among my 3,000 eye problems is intermittent double vision. But … I don’t think that’s the problem, here. I seek the expert counsel of the venerated and revered LumberJocks: IS IT just me …. ?? Tenons are better the second time around!! Incidentally, I occasionally do more than just clean my shop :-) Cheers, All!
Right now, i am in the process of making a candle holder for my wife. I am using some scrap oak for the legs, and quite possibly some maple for the tops and sides. I have gotten the legs cut and sanded, but need to get the material for the tops and sides. I will post pictures as soon as I finish cutiing the rest of it out and get it assembled. Sorry been so long……..... finished the project and gave it to my wife for her birthday……. she took it to work and I forgot to take pictu...
