New Table Saw on Order

04-01-2018 12:47 AM by MKH | 1 comment »

Well, I just ordered a Laguna Fusion F2 table saw. I caught it on sale at 10% off and no sales tax. Shipping was just $75 to my driveway with lift gate service. Ended up with a cabinet style hybrid with a 36” fence and cast iron extensions. I only have 110V in my garage shop so I had to stick with 1 & 3/4 horsepower saw. I think I’ll be happy with this and it will fill my hobbyist needs. It has all of the features I was looking for. The 36” fence seems like a happy m...

Making Progress

03-27-2018 09:25 PM by MKH | 1 comment »

Just stopped by for a quick update on my progress. The garage is almost cleaned out to the point that I can begin assembling my shop. One more round of stuff for the trash-man to go out tomorrow (3/28). I have purchased a mobile stand for my Ryobi 12 SCMC and I will do a review on that soon. I have pretty much decided on my table saw and I’m just waiting to order it from my local Woodcraft store. My goal is to put the saw into place in the shop then organize the garage around the saw...

Shop stuff #119: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash

03-24-2018 01:42 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

You just have to keep trying new things. I thought I would try making a bent lamination for the first time, and, since my son in law plays guitar, a guitar stand seems to be a logical place to try. Here in part one, I prep the stock and get the bent lamination done up. It was a fairly straight forward process. I was expecting some spring back when I took it out of the clamps, but that assumption was incorrect as it held shape great. I am also trying out some new things with my videos. S...

Shop Notes #14: Postponed

03-23-2018 03:52 PM by Steve | 3 comments »

My planned weekend show was postponed a week due to heavy rains. (It’s an outdoor event, and apparently ducks have taken up residence on the lawn where my table is supposed to sit.) The postponement was a bit of a blessing, as it relieves the pressure to get items done on a tight timeline—there’s a impulse to cut corners that I have to resist. Shortly before the cancellation was announced, I had resolved to focus on two cabinets, one sapele, the other walnut—get the...

Updating My Craftsman 113 Table Saw #1: Updating my Craftsman 113 Table Saw (AKA Silk Purse from a Sow's Ear)

03-21-2018 02:36 AM by CRAIGCLICK | 5 comments »

I picked up the woodworking bug when I decided to make some kitchen cabinets for my house “on the cheap.” I had a DREADFUL cheap Ryobi table saw to work with, but even so (thanks to a homemade router table and a decent router), I managed to build some nice plywood cabinets with hardwood face frames and shaker-style doors and drawers. All thanks to some Youtube tutorials and a WHOLE LOT of patience. Not bad for a first try! The problem was that I had now been bitten by the wo...

I made this tapered leg table to have a place to work, study and edit. The top is made of Sapele and the base is maple finished with milk paint. It was a fun project using a variety of machines and hand tools. Enjoy!

Octave Mandolin #20: Custom Octave Mandolin

03-15-2018 03:10 AM by Tomy Hovington | 1 comment »

This project was commissioned and was quite the undertaking. My customer wanted a Octave Mandolin with a archtop and flat backboard. Since there was no blueprints to make such an instrument I had to do research, compile information and sketch my own drawing to even start the project. This build stretch over a year and a bit and was just completed.The wood used in this project is AAA quilted Maple back sides and neck, Engelmann AAA Spruce top, ebony fretboard, binding, and peghead veneer. Maho...

Shop Notes #12: Box Joints and Jewelry Cabinets

03-13-2018 04:08 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

I have a chance to exhibit at a local winery in about two weeks, so I put myself on a plan to get some jewelry cabinets finished in time for the event. These cabinets were based on plans for a hanging Shaker cabinet in Fine Woodworking a few years back. I’m on my fourth generation of design iteration. These are now taller than the original and have two doors instead of one. In this go around, I’ve changed from lap joints for the carcass to box joints, which should give a cleane...

Shop Notes #11: A Productive Week

03-09-2018 08:39 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

Getting my resaw blade in place really opened the floodgates this week. I finished gluing up and planing my mid-century modern boards. I also finished up some leftover chaotic pattern boards that were still hanging around from the holiday rush. By mid week, I was looking at a stack of some 17 cutting boards, ready for sanding. The chaotic boards were made 1 1/2” thick and haven’t sold well in that size. As a test, I sawed one into two 3/4” boards and ran them through ...

Improved Taper Jig

03-08-2018 10:19 PM by wrenchhead | 3 comments »

I made this taper jig to replace the old metal one i have been using. This is a simple table saw jig that makes cutting tapered legs much safer. I have been cutting all of my tapers at the band saw because I wasn’t comfortable at the table saw. This jig will definitely speed up the table leg making process. Thanks for watching.
