So I am finally getting started on making a few new pieces out of my small garage woodshop. Money has been tight and I haven’t been able to get the wood I need to fiddle around with. I was given a load of rough milled lumber from a friend who is just learning how to use his mill. Most of the pieces are not flat, pretty wavy but are fairly thick. This helps because I can take off some material flattening the pieces, making them useable boards. He didn’t charge me an...
Over the weekend I got a new table saw and this was one of my first projects! It is not perfect but I wanted it to look old and used so that work for me. View on YouTube
Thanks to DanK for checking in on me from time to time. Its been a slowwwww project but I’m happy to say it is near completion! I’m pretty sure almost a year. Admittedly I believe I took on more than my skill could handle but WOW did I learn A LOT. My collaborator (the mom of the kids I built it all for) has yet to paint the table and legs but I’m assured she will by tomorrow. The kids have seen it and they are absolutely excited! :) Giants fans may recognize some co...
I finally get to the end of the wood work and start finishing in this one. It is hard to believe there was so much to it. It was a long and challenging build and despite being very ruthless in cutting things out, there is still a ton of video. View on YouTube
as woodworkers, we strive for the best dust collection possible, well maybe no the best but enough that our machines will work. I’ve seen many videos of people showing their set-up, however I haven’t found one similar to mine, so hear is my video.— https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXC0T1fUDOo
I recently researched upgrade options for my entry-level Avenger dado set. I opted for the Freud SD508 8” Super Dado set. One of the minor complaints about this dado set was the fact that the chippers are not labeled with their sizes. I thought I could fix that and my first idea was to etch them as I had etched other metals in the past. It turned out that I couldn’t do that because of the coating that Freud puts on the blades and chippers. What to do? I then ...
Anyone that might be able to help me out. I have a 10” Craftsman Professional Contractors Tablesaw. There are NO Miter slots beside the blade. There are some beside the router table leaf to the left of the saw. My cuts suck, it needs adjusting constantly (Is my starter table saw) and I’d love to build a crosscut sled for it so I can have better and true 45* Angels and such with it. But being that there is no miter slots on the table itself. How would I go about building a Sl...
Alaskan Chainsaw Mill V2.0 is going to be a follow on to the review I posted around this time last year. It seems to have been fairly liked considering it now shows up on Google within the first page of search results. Just type in “Chainsaw Mill” into Google and you will see it within a scroll or two. I’ll thank you all on Lumberjocks for that. Note: some of the images are large but if you right click on them and “Open image in new tab.” You will be able to see...
Hey everybody, my name is frank and I am a hobby craftsman from germany. When I started, it soon came out that my heart was hanging on the woodwork. Since then I have realized many small and big projects. Meanwhile I have started to create videos and came out my own youtube channel. I have fun sharing my experiences with others.My videos are in german, but some with english subtitles. Most of them can be understood as well :)Now I will introduce you my latest project, the build of my diy tab...
This Magic The Gathering card box is designed to hold multiple decks. The top hinges open to reveal 5 small storage areas and one large one. The bottom drawer pulls out to reveal two long storage spots. The customer wanted to do the finish work on it. Check out the video below to see how I made it. View on YouTube
