Table saw upgrade #4: Another step, more things learned

05-21-2011 11:54 PM by dedalo | 2 comments »

As you can see in my “table saw upgrade” history, I took this with a lot of time, becouse I’m not so sure of what I wonted and more important, WHAT I NEEDED. I’m glad I did not rush to the worcenter, I changed my mind a lot using the saw on every step, so the final project keeps changing. After working a little with the saw in the last configuration I took the decition to sale it and buy a new saw, the main reasons where 1.- it was a piece of crap2.- the miter...

Lowering a cabinet saw for use by the disabled in a wheelchair....Part 1

05-21-2011 01:44 AM by lilredweldingrod | 21 comments »

Well, gang, the camera and the computer suddenly became incompatible. So the photos of the FedEx truck and the unloading are history. So we pick up where the phone camera takes off.This is what we need to see, the bottom inside of the cabinet.Now we tape off all the openings to keep the metal shavings contained and out of the motor and goodies. The magnets form an old speaker is also a help in keeping the little buggers close at hand.In manufacturing the cabinet, the factory makes this 4 inch...

Improved Workbench #4: Bracing, Tail Vise, and Planning Sled

05-20-2011 06:37 PM by Brian024 | 1 comment »

In this part I cover how I made the braces to insure the top stays flat, and I’ll use a router to cut the groves for the pipes to sit it that make of the main vise. I’ll also make the planning sled for the side. And for those who are wondering, yes I am wearing sandals.

The Maloof Library Series #8: Something for all of you iPad enthusiasts...

05-19-2011 12:28 AM by ScottMorrison | 3 comments »

Hi everyone. My extremely talented wife just wrote a groundbreaking new APP for the iPad. It’s the first of it’s kind for woodworkers, enabling you to play with a 3D rocking chair (and all of the separate parts) right on the iPad. You can order parts, take notes and do lots of other cool stuff including watching come never-before-seen videos right within the APP. I admit it, I am a gadget guy, and this is so much fun to play with it makes it hard to go back to making sawdu...

Wedding Clock #5: Don't Get Mad at Me, The Back

05-18-2011 03:35 AM by kenn | 5 comments »

As a reminder, I am making an Art and Craft style clock based on one at The Grove Park Inn for my eldest daughter’s upcoming wedding. See post #2 for the goal. I’ve decided to make the back frame and panel assembly first. A little sharpening is order before I get started. Next I planed the stiles flat and square with my Lie-Nielsen #7. Then I just couldn’t handle the suspense anymore and had to lay out the panels and rails to see how it was going to look. This allowed ...

Woodworking projects under way. #3: Wood Magazine clamshell cabinet under way!

05-18-2011 02:34 AM by dbhost | 1 comment »

In my seemingly never ending quest for shop organization, not to mention skill building, I am well underway with the construction of my clamshell cabinet. The design is the one in the Wood Magazine Best Home Workshop Ideas special interest publication (2009 issue, same thing as 2011 issue). At this time, all of the plywood pieces are cut to size, and I must say that I am a HUGE fan of stop blocks now. My recent move of my miter saw to the strong tie workbench, has permitted me to clamp sto...

My first restoration #1: My first tool gloat.........Sorry. And first blog series.

05-17-2011 04:54 AM by armylogger | 10 comments »

So today I drive take a short drive from my home to see a jointer that was on sale on craigslist for $50. I’m thinking it’s gonna be a piece of crap but I had nothing else to do today so I figured “why not”. I get there and I am amazed! It’s an OLD craftsman 6” jointer. It’s not in too bad of a shape. Just needs a little TLC and a little paint. So after seeing the jointer and telling the man that I want it, I am just shooting the bull with the man s...

My newest workshop addition

05-16-2011 05:46 AM by DrJosh | 2 comments »

I recently decided to upgrade my table saw. My budget and space still only allows a benchtop style table saw, but I was able find a pretty good upgrade, in my opinion. I purchased a DeWalt benchtop saw. I really liked this saw because it has standard miter slots, and a real riving knife. I plan to build a descent cross-cut sled for this saw as well as some other jigs that I haven’t been able to make/use on other benchtop saws. I used it all afternoon and found that it cuts well and is a...
