Commisions #7: pull out trash box #2

07-14-2008 08:37 PM by teenagewoodworker | 16 comments »

hey everyone, over the last couple of days i have been able to get a lot done in terms of milling up the lumber and gluing up panels. i chose sycamore for the trash box because it is a hard wood as opposed to the pine that i was going to use before. there was a sale at the lumberyard on sycamore and it was less per bf than a select 1 board of pine. so the purchase made sense. first i got my lumber and let it sit for awhile and then milled it up. the first picture is of a rough board and ...

Tattoo Table #2: bloody hard work

07-14-2008 06:38 AM by Boon | 4 comments »

After getting the exact wood that i wanted i started cutting the pieces down. I choose a table from a woodworking book to copy and modify. Im using 2.5×3x13 inch african mahogany legs and will cut the ends to be flush with the 3/4 hondura mahogany. the idea is from a tile top coffee table but instead of tile, i have oak panels i will lay inside and then the tattoo shop owners will draw all over it and then ill cover it with bar top epoxy. if this post has a few errors its because its ...

What to do with mistakes?

07-14-2008 05:29 AM by Benomatic | 10 comments »

I’ve been working on a small hanging shelf that is suppose to be testing out my new table saw: in reality it is my table saw testing me out. I made the mistake of cutting my dados with a wobble blade instead of waiting to buy an actual set of Freud dado blades- but at the time it seemed like I could get away with it. Its b/c these dados turned out so bad that I went out and bought the right kind of blade for the job I was doing. Why- WHY! So my mistake is now having dados which re...

My New Old Table Saw

07-12-2008 04:27 PM by EEngineer | 6 comments »

I have been woodworking for a while now. For years I used an old 8” craftsman saw. You can see a photo of it under my shop photos. I put a lot of wood through this saw and it always just worked – sometimes with a lot of effort. The fence system was always painful. I adjusted and fussed and played with it and it was never quite right. If you look closely at the picture, you can see the circular marks where I always clamped the far end of the fence with a C-clamp to keep it from...

Album Art #2

07-08-2008 05:47 AM by pat | 3 comments »

So far in this series I have finished two of the hopefully ten woodburned album covers. I take any ideas and use most of them. My next project will be a Dragonforce one and then an ACDC one. Hopefully I’ll be able to do more but I’m in a band and The Teenagewoodworker and I haven’t totally figured out when Wood Riffs will air or what we are gonna do. We might do some sort of guitar case Denny said he was gonna make me but anyway. I’ m open to any comments anyone has. ...

Work(shop) in Progress #3: Bosch 4100 TS - Zero-Clearance Inserts

07-06-2008 05:49 PM by PurpLev | 17 comments »

I got a few questions about the zero-clearance inserts I made for my bosch table saw, so I figured I’d post the procedure here as to how I made those. The basic Idea is to take the factory inserts and use that as a template for the router. but alas, the factory insert is just too thin at some points to be able to follow it with a trim router bit, so to tackle this issue I made an initial template out of 1/2” plywood. This first template took a bit more patience and care so that...

Shop Updates #6: Router Table - Finished!

07-03-2008 12:21 AM by teenagewoodworker | 13 comments »

so my router table project has come to an end. i got my shipment from Lee Valley today and i am happy to say that everything is completed. first upon getting the 2’ T-track i cut it in half with a jigsaw and a metal cutting blade. then i epoxied the track into place. i used a board of mdf to distribute pressure and my two former table saw wings which are probably around 20 pounds each on top. then i just drilled for and installed the t bolts and put on the knobs. and when the fen...

Shop Updates #5: Router Table - Dust Collection

07-01-2008 02:14 AM by teenagewoodworker | 10 comments »

to make my routing work environment more enjoyable i added a few different dust collection systems to my router table. as well as showing the fence that i made for it. first I’ll start off with the fence. it has a 2” opening that goes up high about 3 1/2” to allow for higher bits. so the fence is about 6 inches high for maximum support. and about 2 inches longer than the router table on both sides for maximum work piece support on both the infeed and outfeed sides. so here i...

Shop Updates #4: Router Table #3 (with video)

06-29-2008 08:01 PM by teenagewoodworker | 20 comments »

alright so now everything except for the fence is put together and it is looking awesome. i added the apron and plugged all my holes with birch plugs just for the looks and i put on a coat of poly just to make the birch plugs turn brown because they are end grain so it looks cool, no other reason. i am planning on making the fence and also some form of dust collection and some storage for router bits and a couple other things. maybe even put some French cleats there. so here is a video...

Dragonforce

06-29-2008 06:20 AM by pat | 4 comments »

The results from my last blog entry are in and it looks like the next Alum cover art I will be burning is Dragonforce’s Inhuman Rampage. I’ve been busy lately with my own band having me as the guitarist and lead vocals and a keyboardest Matt Severance and drummer Garrett Toner. But our little three man group is coming along nicely. My next burning will be on maple and will be on the projects section in about a week. Comments, Ideas, requests, questions are welcome. Pat ...
