Howdy, I spent some time yesterday laminating 2 wood choices together. Today I set myself up for some precision cutting. I didn’t use Klaus’ sled. You see I experimented over and over again getting my depth just right. My index was exactly 7/8 of an inch. Heck, half my time was spent on the math. I’m pretty sure most of my issues today are because I didn’t build a 45 degree sled with an indexer. I know the worst problems I had were because I didn’t buil...
In this episode, I make the back from some maple stock. The back is ship lapped and will be installed in a groove in the back legs I also make a solid cherry top with a curved front. Now I will say I completely screw up the first attempt by, well just being really stupid and not paying attention to what I was doing, and using the wrong bit in my router. I do show how I recover from this mistake in the end. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’...
The table is an aluminum extrusion, and the auxiliary table is just another piece of the same extrusion, just shorter. It’s black anodized, but really should have been hard anodized as it scratches all too easily. A common theme I’m discovering is that Sawstop weighted form over function with this design. Hard anodize, or perhaps even teflon impregnated hard anodize (the stuff they put on aluminum cookware to make it non-stick) would have been far superior. Adjusting the fence ...
Before I get underway, the first tip has to be…It doesn’t matter how careful you are, accidents still happen I started cutting for my sanding blocks, don’t ask what happened, I don’t know, I just know I was aware I was about to have a kickback on the table saw, I was using push blocks, tried to get out of the way, and in doing so, lost one and a bit finger tips!! The tip, is to make sure you keep a tube of Superglue in your First Aid Kit, after washing the woun...
A while ago I picked up a wonderful 1961 craftsman table saw for a fair price. It came with a bosch router & insert, biesemeyer fence & its pretty much ready to work. I added a pair of link belts & tuned in the blade a bit. I also posted a little video tour the day after I got it home https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VqgxtkxpnpwI am going to finish the out feed table & post a pic or another video in a few weeks. I’m happy with it.
I started by my project by opening the book to the materials list. Then grab a board of oak and cut it down to make the rales.
In this video, I cut the curved door panels to size using the bending form I used to create them. Then I cut the veneer for the edge banding, and install it on the doors to give the illusion that they are a solid bent panel. Then install the hinges and hang them. After the doors are hung, I can start working on the curved drawer front. I cut the face of the curve on a large blank and them create the half blind dovetails for the sides. I then veneer the face of the drawer front so that the ...
