Acoustic Instruments #2: Starting the Marimba

11-20-2016 03:36 PM by johnstoneb | 6 comments »

I have finally started on the marimba. I am following the plans I got from makeamarimba.com. They are a good plans although some times you have to translate from oz to usa english. I did a lot of searching on line on commercial marimbas and settled on padauk for the keyboard and cherry for the frame. The preferred wood for concert keyboards is rosewood. I called my hardwood supplier to get a price on rosewood when I was able to breath again I decided padauk was a good keyboard wood (most...

Table Saw Restoration #1: Intro and Cleaning Up the Top

11-15-2016 01:44 PM by Jared Tohlen | 4 comments »

This is my first post or utterance on this site, so bear with me while I get in the swing of things… I’ve always wanted to get into woodworking so I can build useful and practical things with my own hands. Within the last few months I’ve come into a host of woodworking tools and machinery, most of which were simply given to me once I expressed interest. These items include: a Delta spindle sander, old craftsman dual disc/belt sander, a vintage Buffalo Tool drill press, a ...

Yet Another Craftsman 113 Saw Blog #10: And on we go

11-14-2016 08:51 PM by jonlruss | 0 comments »

When I started this project one thing I thought as I went through the blogs of others was, how can it take so long? Here I am months after starting and boy do I get it now. Between family obligations, vacation, getting sick, weather, and only getting so many hours over a weekend that can be devoted to it I really understand now. At any rate, the last two weekends I’ve managed to get in a little more time working on this. Unfortunately I got a late start on Saturday, if I’d had ...

Shop stuff #63: Coffee table Pt 4

11-14-2016 07:45 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, a coffee table needs legs right? In this one I make up the slabs for the legs of the coffee table. Lots of cutting and milling and work with the hand plane. In the end I have 2 nice blanks to be used for the legs of the table. I experimented with a new intro and outro and getting some different angles on some shots. I also kept it under 20 minutes. Makes more episodes I suppose. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #61: Coffee table pt. 2

11-02-2016 03:23 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

After lots of editing and cutting and experimenting with my editing software, I finally got part 2 done. Here I am getting the top roughed out some more and slowly bringing it into what I want. Hours and hours of work over several days. It does not seem like it when you watch a video. I have to point out that my power tools are not particularly quiet, I pull the volume back on those sections. I watch a lot of You Tube videos, and edit mine, using headphones, and getting your ears blasted...

Quoridor board: How to (quick & dirty)

10-26-2016 01:11 PM by Picklehead | 0 comments »

A fellow Lumberjock requested more info on how I made my quick & dirty Quoridor board. After sending him the info, I figured I might as well post it here. It’s been almost a year since I made the board so I hope my memory is correct. Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll do my best to answer them. MAKING A QUORIDOR BOARD The overall width is determined by the size of the squares that make up the board plus the width of your blade. I made mine by allowing for extr...

Shop stuff #60: Starting on the coffee table

10-23-2016 02:40 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

Now that I have made the track for the circular saw, and got the planer tuned up, I can actually start building the coffee table that I promised my wife for her birthday back in January. I am taking a bit of a different tack on this series of videos by making them shorter. I think that will make viewing them easier. Most of my build videos I have made longer because I thought I would lose continuity but I think they may be a bit long for viewing. This series I am going to try to keep each...

Craftsman Table Saw Restortion #3: New On/Off switch, Finish Assembly, Vega Fence

09-27-2016 02:15 PM by Chris Januski | 3 comments »

I should have been updating this more often instead of posting all of the pictures at once but I guess I’ll be better about it next time. Once the base and frame were assembled I opened the motor and found how jammed it was full of saw dust. After cleaning it out I changed out the switch for a paddle switch. After the switch was mounted I enclosed the bottom of the saw with plywood for dust collection. I installed the factory fence and realized how wobbly it was so I upgraded to a V...

Craftsman Table Saw Restortion #2: Table Saw Legs and Base

09-26-2016 02:24 PM by Chris Januski | 0 comments »

After working on the table top I moved on to the base. After sitting outside for a few years it had really began to rust pretty bad. I sanded it all down to bare metal, painted it, and reassembled with new hardware. (First time using photobucket for pictures, hope they come out ok)

Craftsman Table Saw Restortion #1: Craftsman Table Saw Restoration Part 1

09-26-2016 01:05 PM by Chris Januski | 0 comments »

I started this project in May and have finally completed it. I was given an old Craftsman 12” direct drive saw from my father-in-law. The saw had been outside under a tarp for the last 3 years. The top was rusted and the gears were full of saw dust and gunk. The trunion was completely locked up. ! I disassembled the saw and started with cleaning the gears. It took a couple of hours, but afterwards it worked wonderfully. Next I began sanding the top. It was in ...
